TOKYO (Reuters) - The governor of Tokyo on Wednesday called on bars and restaurants in the Japanese capital to adopt reduced working hours and urged residents to stay at home where possible, as the rate of contamination with the new coronavirus is skyrocketing.

"We must make everyone cooperate to prevent further spread of the virus in a firm and concentrated manner," Governor Yuriko Koike said at a press conference.

"We realize this is an extremely important time of year for business owners, but if we don't stop this now, it will just continue," she added.

Establishments that agree to close at 10 p.m. from Saturday until December 17 may benefit from financial assistance of 400,000 yen (3,221 euros).

Beyond Tokyo, the city of Osaka, located in the west of the country, has also asked its bars and restaurants to reduce their hours.

Osaka, which is among the regions with a marked rise in coronavirus cases, was part with the city of Sapporo in a national travel promotion campaign, "Go To Travel," which was partially suspended on Tuesday.

"We must put an end to this state of affairs," Osaka Mayor Ichiro Matsui said at a press conference on Wednesday.

"I understand that this situation creates difficulties for small business owners, but we also need to reduce the workload of nursing staff, of whom we have a limited number."

For now, the "Go To Travel" campaign in Tokyo has not been suspended, but Governor Yuriko Koike has indicated that a different program, specific to the capital, will be temporarily suspended.
