Shinzo Abe was treated at a hospital in Tokyo a few days ago and stayed for about 7 and a half hours. I said that he "understood a medical examination." However, Japanese media reported that the backbone of the Liberal Democratic Party said: "It takes a long time as a medical examination, which has attracted speculation that they are receiving treatment."
On the 21st, Japanese media observed that Abe had only worked half a day for three consecutive days, which once again triggered speculation about his health. A source at the prime minister's residence emphasized that there is no problem with Abe's health and the main reason is to let him rest as much as possible. According to reports, next week, Abe will continue this "saving mode" of reducing the number of scheduled meetings, and will not arrange evening dinners at this stage.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga previously stated in a private television program that he was not surprised by Abe's health.
