Tokyo (AP) —The Japanese economy shrank at an annual rate of 3.6% from July to September, according to a revised estimate released Wednesday.

According to the government, growth forecasts for the previous quarter are down from previous reports of a 3.0% contraction, reflecting weak consumer spending and trade.

The world’s third-largest economy is in recession and struggling to recover from the effects of the coronavirus infection wave.

The latest outbreaks that occurred at the end of summer have been declining so far, and the number of cases is declining sharply. However, it usually hit during the busy summer travel season and there were demands on restaurants, hotels and other service sector industries that hurt limited business activities and travel.
