JAPAN

Wires and social media reporting comments from Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga stating that Japan's vaccination programme will assist in the country's economy rebounding from the pandemic, and that tax collection receipts during the previous year are expected to reach a new high. Suga also confirmed that the government would take more 'proactive' measures to combat the rise in COVID-19 cases with the Tokyo Olympic Games less than one month away.

  • Tokyo reported 714 new cases of COVID-19 on 30 June, the first time that the new caseload in the city had topped 700 in a day since 26 May.
  • The Japan Times reports comments from a Tokyo Olympic Official stating that "The infection situation is very bad. If this continues, [quasi-state of emergency restrictions] will remain from July 12,". This could see maximum capacity at events reduced from the planned 10,000 to 5,000 or 50% of capacity if the venue holds fewer than 10k spectators.
