When I heard the news that there was going to be another 緊急事態 (kinkyū jitai, state of emergency), I got a serious case of 既視感 (kishikan), which is also commonly referred to as デジャブ (dejabu, deja vu).

The first 緊急事態宣言 (kinkyū jitai sengen, state of emergency declaration) was announced last year in April. At first it covered seven prefectures, but was soon extended nationwide for close to two months.
