"[COVID-19] Press Conference by the Prime Minister regarding the Novel Coronavirus" by the Cabinet Public Relations Office, Cabinet Secretariat.

On May 14, the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe held a press conference and appeared on TV.

He announced that the government had lifted the Declaration of a State of Emergency for 39 prefectures.
He also explained that the Declaration remains in place for eight others: Hokkaido, Chiba, Saitama, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Osaka, Kyoto, and Hyogo till May 31.

The government, with the panel of experts, will review the status of these prefectures and announce on May 21 whether they can lift the Declaration before May 31.

Despite the partial lifting of the state of emergency, Abe has reiterated his call for citizens to reduce people-to-people contact, with a focus on avoiding the "Three Cs": closed spaces, crowded places, and close-contact settings. He also asked that people continue to refrain from all non-essential prefectural border crossings.

Prefectural governors and local officials have also announced measures that vary by prefecture.
