Fukuoka Prefecture intends to continue requesting local eateries to close at 21:00 until Mar. 21. The local government originally planned to implement the business regulation until Mar. 7; however, limited improvements in hospital beds’ regional occupancy rate forced them to consider an extension. The request will be shortened earlier if the rate falls below 20%. The subsidy program for cooperating shops would also continue. Source: Mainichi
