Abe announced the lifting of the emergency in 39 of Japan’s 47 prefectures, as the country strives to balance the damage to the economy from prolonged shutdowns and the need to stem the spread of the coronavirus, Reuters reported.
But he said the biggest urban centers of Tokyo and Osaka will remain under restrictions until there is a convincing containment of the new coronavirus.
