Declaration of emergency in The Province of Tokyo If we can confirm the improvement trend, the policy of the cancellation tomorrow May 24 5:22
With regard to the emergency declaration supting in Tokyo and other metropolitan areas, the government plans to cancel the current trend of improvement, such as a decrease in the number of new people infected.
The declaration of emergency based on the Special Measures Act for the Corona Virus Virus Act is still being issued to Tokyo and other metropolitan metropolitan prefectures and Hokkaido, and the government has decided to determine whether it can be lifted.
The number of new infected people on The 23rd was the lowest since the number of new infections in Tokyo was declared on The 7th of last month, with two people confirmed on the day.
In addition, together with Saitama and Chiba, the number of new infected people in the last week fell below the declaration of less than or equal to the number of people infected per 100,000 people.
On the other hand, there were five people in Kanagawa and nine in Hokkaido, which exceeded this standard.
After analyzing the situation with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Minister for Economic Revitalization Nishimura told a press conference, “The number of new people infected has decreased considerably in Tokyo, and the number of others is also quite low. The sickbed is also secured, and the number of severely injured people is decreasing. The percentage of patients who follow the number of new infections and the path of infection continues to be good.”
The government plans to lift the declaration in The Metropolitan Area, Tokyo, and Hokkaido, if the current trend of improvement can be confirmed by assessing the number of new infected people and the medical provision system.
If we consult an advisory committee that makes such a policy to experts and others, and if we have a view that it is appropriate, we will open the Countermeasures Headquarters to decide to release the declaration.
