Japanese PM Kishida says U.S. military bases to impose tighter controls

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said that the U.S. has agreed to impose stricter COVID-19 measures at its military bases in Japan. This comes amid concerns that hundreds of infections reported in U.S. bases since December have led to infections in nearby communities. Kishida said in a program on Sunday that the two countries agreed in principle to control and prohibit unnecessary outings. Japan has imposed emergency COVID-19 measures in three prefectures that host the U.S. bases. The emergency controls will remain in place until January 31.
