TOKYO: The Japanese government is considering completely lifting its COVID-19 state of emergency, currently covering Tokyo and 18 other prefectures, when it expires on Thursday, informed sources said Monday.

The government currently has no plans to replace the novel coronavirus state of emergency for the 19 prefectures with the less strict pre-emergency designation.
