The government is increasingly uncertain about whether it will be able to fully lift its COVID-19 quasi-emergency measures across the country when they expire on March 6 due to continued strains on health care services.

The measures were removed for five prefectures on Sunday but are still in place in Tokyo and 30 other prefectures. The government hopes to lift the measures completely on March 6 to highlight the reopening of the economy across the country.
