Sankei wrote that WHO Director-General Tedros commented on Japan’s lifting of its nationwide state of emergency during a news conference on Monday, saying that Japan has successfully kept the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths to a minimum. Tedros added that Japan will continue implementing such measures as identifying infection routes and isolating patients even after the state of emergency has been lifted. Nikkei added that another WHO official told reporters on Monday that many countries around the world are still in the middle of the first wave of infections as the number of new cases is increasing in Latin America and other regions, and warned that a second wave could occur in developed nations where the virus has been brought under control.
