Mayor Ichiro was speaking on the importance of social distancing in other to halt the spread of Coronavirus when he made the statement.

‘When a woman goes… it will take time,’ Matsui said when asked by a male reporter about possibly reducing shoppers’ entry to supermarkets to lower the risk of coronavirus infections.

‘If it was you, if you were told to get this or that, then you would go directly… and go home,’ he said. ‘It’s also fine for men to go shopping while avoiding contact.’

Matsui, who also said married couples should avoid going shopping together, drew criticism on Japanese Twitter over his remarks, with users saying they were sexist.

‘Japan is a country where these words come calmly out of a mayor’s mouth. Deplorable,’ said one user today.

Another user said: ‘When I hear remarks like this… I feel the need for people with diverse backgrounds to participate in politics,’ the user said.

By Friday morning there were nearly 1,500 coronavirus cases in Osaka, making it the second hardest-hit after Tokyo.
