All national dailies wrote that the GOJ has put together a basic plan to ease the existing COVID-19 restrictions on people’s activities in the fall for those who have been vaccinated or have submitted negative PCR test results, allowing them to travel beyond prefectural borders for business or pleasure even if a state of emergency is still in place. The GOJ is also considering allowing eateries to serve alcohol and raising the cap on the number of participants in large-scale events. Based on the estimate that most of the people who wish to receive COVID-19 vaccines will be fully vaccinated by November, the GOJ is planning to conduct tests to verify the effectiveness of the steps in October and start implementing them in November. The GOJ is planning to endorse the plan at a meeting of its coronavirus taskforce headquarters today for further discussions with experts. The papers wrote that the plan is aimed at revitalizing the economic and social activities in the country that have grown stagnant due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
