Japan lifts its restrictions

Commuters wearing protective face masks are seen in Fukuoka, southern Japan a day after the government announced the lifting of the state of emergency related to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Japan, which had more than 16,000 cases and over 700 fatalities, lifted its state of emergency in over 80% of the country.
