Broadcasters led with reports on the start of the Summit for Democracy hosted by the United States (NHK), many local municipalities choosing to distribute 100,000-yen handouts to families with children in cash instead of partially as coupons because it would cost more to prepare and distribute coupons (NTV), and an increasing number of traffic accidents in Japan involving vehicles driven by elderly people (Fuji TV, TBS, TV Asahi).


Main front-page stories in national papers included a GOJ plan to revise relevant laws aimed at enabling public authorities to take stricter measures to combat COVID-19, the opening of the Summit for Democracy, the Environment Ministry’s finding that progress on separate collection of plastic garbage has been slow across the nation, and a report on growing criticism of Instagram for harming the mental health of young people.
