All national dailies wrote that the GOJ decided at a coronavirus taskforce subcommittee meeting on Thursday to lift the current cap of 10,000 attendees at large-scale events such as sporting events and concerts on Nov. 1 as the number of new COVID-19 cases has been steadily declining across the country. The maximum number of spectators allowed at such events is currently 10,000 or 50% of venue capacity in the 27 prefectures that had been under a state of emergency or a quasi-state of emergency through September, but the panel decided on Thursday to lift the 10,000-person cap in these prefectures. However, the nationwide attendance limit of 50% of venue capacity will remain in place for the time being.
