Earlier, the government planned to allocate funds only to support the families most affected by the crisis.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe pledged to distribute 100 thousand yen ($ 926) to all Japanese citizens as humanitarian support during the coronovirus crisis.
According to Bloomberg, the Japanese government had previously planned to give 300 thousand yen ($ 2783) to only those households that could confirm a significant decrease in their income. However, with such a plan, financial support will be distributed over a longer period of time. In addition, the administrative offices handling such requests will have an increased risk of infection, Japanese officials said.
However, if the state followed the initial plan, about 4 trillion yen ($ 37.1 billion) would be allocated for domestic support. Now, the provision of financial assistance to each Japanese will result in a country of 12 trillion yen ($ 111.3 billion), not including the record amount of 108.2 trillion yen (more than $ 1 trillion) that the government has to support the economy Planned to allocate.
