NHK took up press remarks by Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga earlier in the day. He suggested that the GOJ will not ask people to avoid visiting their hometowns during the upcoming Obon holidays: “We don’t think such trips need to be avoided. Instead we want people to follow proper prevention protocols, such as avoiding the ‘Three Cs,’ wearing masks, and washing their hands.” The government spokesperson stressed that it is necessary to strike a balance between infection control and economic reconstruction, adding that the GOJ will seek advice from the coronavirus taskforce advisory subcommittee on the matter later this week.
