Japan’s government is not considering crafting a supplementary budget to respond to the coronavirus pandemic immediately given there’s still money left to tap in the emergency budget reserve, Finance minister Taro Aso said on Friday.

Earlier in the day, the cabinet decided to spend 512 billion yen ($4.67 billion) in the budget reserve to secure coronavirus vaccines to contain the spread of the COVID-19 infections, Aso told reporters after a cabinet meeting.
