Tokyo Gov Yuriko Koike resumed her duties on Sunday after taking time off due to fatigue.
Koike, 69, spent six days in hospital from Oct 27. After being discharged on Nov 2, she teleworked from home, according to the Tokyo metropolitan government.
Koike was admitted to the hospital after she had been seen clearing her throat often in recent conferences. She was also hospitalized in June for about a week due to fatigue.
On Sunday morning, she spoke to reporters outside her office in Tokyo’s Shinjuku, before attending a video meeting with other governors to discuss anti-coronavirus measures.
Koike told reporters she was feeling much better and said her main priority was ensuring the medical system can cope with further outbreaks of the virus and that there will be enough vaccine supplies for the booster shot.
