  • The Japanese government offered the assessment in its Monthly Economic Report for May 2020 that " The Japanese economy is worsening rapidly in an extremely severe situation, due to the Novel Coronavirus(COVID-19)." Concerning short-term prospects, the government showed its opinion that " an extremely severe situation is expected to remain due to the influence of the infectious disease for the time being, although the level of socio-economic activities will be resumed gradually with taking measures to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Also, attention should be given to the effects of fluctuations in the financial and capital markets."
