Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Japan will lift all Covid-19 states of emergency on Thursday” – below is their description.

The emergency measures, which largely limit alcohol sales, restaurant opening hours and crowd sizes at large events, have been in place for much of the year, including during the Olympics. They are due to expire at the end of September, and Suga said there would be no extension due to Japan’s improving virus situation. ‘Thanks to everyone’s hard work, the number of daily new infections, which was above 25,000 in mid-August, has come down to 1,128 people as of yesterday,’ he said at a ministerial meeting.
