TOKYO, Dec 1 (Reuters) - Bank of Japan board member Seiji
Adachi said on Wednesday the central bank would consider easing
monetary policy further only in extreme cases where a renewed
spike in COVID-19 infections triggered market turbulence.
"The BOJ must consider taking additional easing steps only
if developments surrounding the pandemic lead to a yen spike and
stock price fall, and when such market conditions persist,"
Adachi said in a news conference.
