Asahi front-paged yesterday’s informal meeting of the Health Ministry’s coronavirus advisory board at which many participants expressed opposition to lifting the COVID-19 state of emergency on Feb. 7 as scheduled because the healthcare capacity is still under heavy strain. According to the daily, a consensus is also emerging within the Kantei for extending the declaration by two to four weeks, although Tochigi Prefecture may be removed from the designation because the number of new cases per day and other indicators have improved there.
