Jun Saito repeated the point that Japan is heading towards a severe recession, attributing it to the shocks on demand and supply. In addition, the delaying of Olympics and Paralympics will “put more downward pressure” on Japan’s economy.

While coronavirus outbreak in the US and some European economies is easing, this may not be a very good news for the safe-haven yen, which has benefited from the continuous global economic slump in March.
