TOKYO -- The Japanese government will inject cash into large and mid-size corporations that are struggling in the face of the coronavirus, supplementing low-interest loans and subsidies already in place to help save businesses.

The capital injections will be designed as a safety net in case negative impacts from the pandemic drag on or worsen. The idea is to create measures companies can easily take advantage of, so they can receive help quickly.
