The Japanese government announced on Tuesday that it will end the state of emergency this week to help with the economic recovery. The Japanese Prime Minister, Yoshihide Suga, has said that the state of emergency will end on September 30 and the restrictions on coronavirus will be gradually lifted “in order to resume daily activities, despite the presence of the virus.”
Suga has said the government will set up more temporary coronavirus centers and continue the vaccination process, in preparation for a new outbreak in the future. He added that authorities are also working on vaccine passports and coronavirus tests. The state of emergency in Japan, declared in April, has been extended several times.
The state of emergency has included requests for restaurants and bars to reduce working hours and not serve alcohol. Governors in Tokyo, Osaka, Hyogo and Kyoto have said they plan to enforce these requirements as they carefully monitor the virus situation. Japan has managed to avoid tougher restrictive measures, while the pandemic outbreak has recorded about 1.69 million cases of infection and over 17.5000 victims.
Japan has hosted the Northern Olympics, while implementing a state of emergency in some regions. However, daily infection rates are now declining.
