TOKYO: Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has left hospital in Tokyo on Monday, the Jiji news agency reported, after his visit there stoked some concerns about his health.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was admitted to Keio University Hospital in Shinanomachi, Tokyo at around 10:30 a.m. on Monday.

According to an informed source, the hospital plans to carry out a medical examination, and the visit is not for “hospitalization.”

Regarding the physical condition of Prime Minister Abe, there were voices of concern as several people who had met him recently said that Abe seemed to be “tired.”

Amari Akira, a high ranking member of the Liberal Democratic Party, and  a close ally of the Abe, said yesterday he was worried about the accumulated fatigue of Japan’s PM, who has been working continuously especially in relation of the government efforts to deal with coronavirus.

Amari suggested Abe takes a break for a few days.

After attending the national memorial ceremony on the WW2 end on August 15th every year, the prime minister took a rest at a villa in Yamanashi Prefecture, but this year Abe returned to his private residence in Tokyo.
