Tokyo's streets after the Coronavirus outbreaks

Philippe Brault was in Tokyo at the beginning of March, at a pivotal time when the Covid-19 virus is already circulating around the world but the containment measures we know today have not yet been taken.

Despite the presence of the virus in the peninsula as early as January, the number of positive cases remains relatively low in the first half of March.
As everywhere in Asia, the wearing of masks is usual but the alleys of Yoyogi Park are not empty and the inhabitants continue to go down in the streets.

At the end of March, the Japanese capital experienced a rapid worsening of the epidemic. Politicians are issuing more and more warnings, but for the time being, the city is not being confined.
