Hideaki Omura, the Governor of Aichi, lifted the coronavirus (Covid-19) State of Emergency based on the reduction of infections. Hence, the State of Emergency between August 6 and 24 appears to have halted the crisis.

The main concern is Nagoya and the surrounding region because of warning signs in late July and early August. Thus Omura responded to the situation to restore confidence in the long-term. Therefore, the temporary measures appear to have worked while caution remains.

In the last ten days, new infections have fallen below 100 during this period. Indeed, in the last 24 hours, only 43 confirmed new infections were announced.

Local government officials in Aichi are still asking people to refrain from travel outside of this prefecture. The exceptions being the neighboring prefectures of Gifu and Mie. However, outside these two prefectures, the request is for only essential trips outside of this region.

Officials in Aichi are warning people to protect the most vulnerable in society – who are prone to serious Covid-19 conditions. Thus the elderly, people with low immune systems, diabetics, and others in high-risk groups should be shielded from new infections.

Overall, signs of a reduction in new infections are occurring throughout most of Japan. Hence, while concerns remain, signs of hope are materializing in recent days. – Tokyo Metropolitan Government website for updates about the coronavirus crisis in Tokyo. – Japan and Tokyo Covid-19 news with more analysis – Japan regional coronavirus statistics World coronavirus statistics
