Tokyo will pay citizens $15.8 billion due to COVID-19

Tokyo authorities decided to allocate 1.8 trillion yen (about $ 15.8 billion) to help the population in the conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is reported by the local newspaper Yomiuri.

It is noted that the Government of Japan has made these payments to the draft state budget for the 2022 fiscal year. As part of the assistance, all residents who have an identity card in the form of a plastic card will receive $ 174.

In this case, the condition for receiving money will be the citizen’s consent to use these cards as medical insurance, and they must also be linked to a bank account. Thus, the authorities want to increase the popularity of unified identity cards. At the moment, only 39 percent of Japanese use them.

Earlier, a professor of the National Institute of Genetics Ituro Inoue said that the incidence of COVID-19 in Japan decreased after the delta strain of the virus self-destructed due to constant mutations. In addition, the number of infections could decrease due to high vaccination rates in the country and compliance with measures to protect against infection.
