TV Asahi reported at noon that the GOJ is expected to forgo lifting the COVID-19 state of emergency this week as the occupancy of hospital beds for COVID-19 patients is reaching its limit. The network added that a GOJ official stressed the need to keep the number of new COVID-19 cases per day down until the vaccination of ordinary citizens begins, quoting the official as saying: “We want to curb the number of cases as much as possible until we finish vaccinating elderly people.”
