Tokyo Governor is discharged from hospital
Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike was discharged from hospital this Wednesday (30) after being treated for severe fatigue, the metropolitan government said, less than a month before the opening of the Olympics.
Koike, 68, was hospitalized on June 22nd. She will carry out her tasks via telecommuting for the time being under the guidance of doctors, the metropolitan government said.
“I apologize from the bottom of my heart for making a lot of people worried and causing them problems by being out of work at this important time,” she said in a statement.
Koike faces the tasks of leading the capital's response to the coronavirus pandemic, as well as preparations to host the Olympics and Paralympics. The Summer Games are expected to start on July 23 as Japan continues to struggle to contain the spread of the virus.
The governor said that her health has improved somewhat and she has promised to speed up her recovery so that she can fully return to her duties.
