Japan to lift its state of emergency

The Japanese government has confirmed that the state of emergency in Tokyo and other areas will be lifted.

The country's panel of health experts has approved a plan for lifting the measures, which apply to the nation's capital as well as all other prefectures across Japan, according to Japanese Economy Minister Yasutoshi Nishimura (pictured).

The news comes as the country is looking to give its residents traveling abroad a paper version of a vaccine passport this summer, which will be replaced by a digital version by the end of the year.
