The Japanese government announced an updated version of economic emergency relief package on April 20, 2020, in response to the growing impact of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on Japan's economy. The planned stimulus package reached a value of approximately 117 trillion Japanese yen ,more than twice the amount of the economic measures taken by the government in 2009 when the global economic recession occurred. Compared to the last version released on April 7, roughly nine trillion yen was added to the plan.

It was, however, lifted in 39 prefectures on May 14 as the number of new infection cases went down. As of May 18 , 2020, there were a total of 16,305 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Japan
