  • JMH Summary

Most networks and national dailies gave top coverage to reports that the GOJ will most likely lift the state of emergency for Osaka, Kyoto, and Hyogo tomorrow as the number of new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people over the preceding week is below the government target in the three prefectures. NTV led with a report that Tokyo confirmed 5 new cases on Tuesday.


Other front-page items in national papers included the apparent leakage of data on a missile following a cyberattack on Mitsubishi Electric, and a GOJ plan to infuse 50 billion yen ($464 million) worth of capital into some 500 small and medium-sized firms to help them weather the pandemic.
