Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Monday visited the hospital for another checkup amid concerns about his health. Earlier, Abe had brushed off lingering worries about his health during his previous visit, saying he went to the hospital only for a checkup. “I got a checkup a day before yesterday to make absolutely sure I’m healthy,” he told reporters. “I’m getting back to work now, and I hope to keep working hard. Thank you,” he told reporters.
