Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga has announced an end to full COVID-19 state of emergency measures in nine prefectures, including the capital Tokyo, from Sunday 20 June. In seven prefectures (Tokyo, Osaka, Hokkaido Aichi, Hyogo, Kyoto and Fukuoka) they will be replaced by 'quasi-state of emergency measures', while Hiroshima and Okayama will move out of state of emergency measures entirely. The archipelago of Okinawa is the only prefecture that remains in a full COVID-19 state of emergency.

  • Suga stated that if infections rise again, he will have to re-impose measures. However, it is clear that this would be the least preferred option for the gov't given the Olympic Games are due to begin in Tokyo in just over a month on 23 July.
