The state of emergency that was imposed in Japan in view of the coronavirus pandemic, is going to be partially lifted by the government at a time when Tokyo Olympics is barely five months away. 10 regions including Tokyo are currently under emergency restrictions. The restrictions will be ended on March 7 in nearly all the regions. The decision comes after requests from several prefectures to lift the state of emergency.
