The Japanese government basically decided that the state of emergency in Tokyo, Saitama, Chiba, Kanagawa and Hokkaido will be completely lifted on the 25th. In the morning, an advisory committee was convened to hear the opinions of experts on the emergency declarations of the last five prefectures. Minister of Economic Regeneration Nimura Kang Min said at the meeting that, according to the analysis of the current epidemic situation, it is believed that all prefectures and counties do not need to implement emergency situations.

According to reports, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and the relevant cabinet members analyzed the new crown epidemic situation. The Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare Kato Shengxin stated that “the number of new infections is decreasing, and the same trend is occurring in (emergency) continuing areas.

Japanese government lifted the emergency declaration in most areas earlier, but Tokyo, Hokkaido, Kanagawa, Saitama, and Chiba prefectures have remained. Japanese media reported that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced today the announcement of the lifting of the emergency, and will also formulate guidelines on the movement of people across counties and cities, the opening of stores, and the resumption of various events.

The Japanese government regards “the number of newly infected persons in the last week is less than 0.5 per 100,000 population” as one of the criteria for lifting the state of emergency, and it will also make a comprehensive judgment based on medical treatment and testing system conditions. At the same time, the Japanese government also believes that even if the numerical value fails to reach the rough goal, as long as a sufficient medical and testing system can be ensured and the infection route can be tracked, the state of emergency can be lifted.
