NHK gave top coverage to a report that today marks one month since the state of emergency was first declared for seven prefectures, saying that the GOJ is expected to call on the 13 prefectures designated as areas for which special attention is warranted to continue aiming to reduce the number of commuters by 70% even after the Golden Week holidays. NTV led with a report that Tokyo confirmed 38 new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, saying that although the number was below 100 for four consecutive days, the average for the last seven days was still high at 91.9. TBS gave top play to a report that Prime Minister Abe said on an online program that around May 14 the GOJ’s advisory panel of medical experts will come up with a set of conditions for lifting the state of emergency.  Fuji TV led with a report that TV Asahi announcer Tamao Akae, who was admitted to the hospital last month after testing positive for COVID-19, was discharged on May 4.
