Japan Ends Coronavirus State Of Emergency

Japan Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, has announced the end of the state of emergency in Japan. The state of emergency had been in place since April and has now ended a week earlier than intended. 

Abe believes that Japan has done a good job of fighting the spread of the coronavirus in under 2 months. 

He went on to clarify that the fight against the virus will still continue, as more people are still being infected by the virus. 

Abe was advised by health experts to continue monitoring the situation, as a second or third wave of infections could occur with the end of the state of emergency. 

The government is working towards improving the state of the economy which has been negatively affected by the decline in economic activity.  

The end of the state of emergency does not mean life will go back to normal as some may think, but it means that all people of Japan will have to adopt a new way of living. 

The Japanese government has now called for all Japanese people to continue wearing face masks, maintain social distancing and to keep working from home.
