This makes me sad.
I understand that but at the same time, you’re happy for them protecting their health which, frankly, his health is always precarious, right? I can’t imagine you’d want anything to happen to him or his staff. There’ve been improvements but even still, the current state in Japan is as follows:
Japan has ended a nationwide state of emergency, after lifting the declaration in the final five areas. The order was lifted across most areas earlier this month, but Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba Saitama, and Hokkaido have now been removed. The move comes six days earlier than expected.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said this does not mean the end of the outbreak, but said the goal was to balance preventive measures and the economy until vaccines and effective drugs become available.
"We had very stringent criteria for lifting the state of emergency. We have judged that we have met this," Abe told a nationally televised news conference. He celebrated the country's success in flattening the curve, saying Japan "was able to show the strength of the so-called Japan model."
Abe warned citizens would have to adapt to a "new normal" and continue to avoid the "three Cs" — closed spaces, crowded places and close contact. "If we lower our guard, the infection will spread very rapidly... we need to be vigilant," he said. "We need to create a new lifestyle; from now on we need to change our way of thinking."
Japan has had about 16,600 confirmed cases and about 850 deaths, avoiding the large-scale outbreaks seen in parts of Europe and the US. However, the country has fallen into recession and Abe's support has tumbled.
Individual prefectures can impose their own measures, with Tokyo planning to reopen in three phases starting with schools, libraries, museums, and longer service hours for restaurants. Next will come theaters, sports facilities, and other commercial establishments, followed finally by nightclubs, karaoke and live music houses.

But I’m not trying to tell you how to feel, I was just saying I get it. Not getting your fix is sad. Just trying to clarify your perspective is all. It was a little potentially confusing or misleading. ^_^
