Asahi, Yomiuri, and Nikkei wrote that the Tokyo Metropolitan Government is making final arrangements to end on Sept. 15 as scheduled its policy of asking establishments serving alcohol and karaoke parlors in the capital’s central 23 wards to close by 10:00 p.m. as the number of new coronavirus cases has been trending downward in recent days. The Tokyo government is also planning to lower its virus alert by one notch from level four, the highest level, which means “infections are spreading.” As a result, the alert level for Tokyo will be lowered to the second highest level, calling for “caution against a resurgence.”
