Japan economic report drops mention of coronavirus

Kyodo -- May 25
The government said in a monthly report Wednesday that the Japanese economy is recovering from the pandemic, with the word "coronavirus" not included in its assessment for the first time in more than two years.

"The Japanese economy shows movements of picking up," the Cabinet Office report said in its basic assessment, dropping the words "as the severe situation due to the novel coronavirus is easing" that followed the line in last month's report.
