State of emergency begins in host city Tokyo

Tokyo, the Olympic host city, declared a fresh state of emergency on Monday, less than two weeks before the Games begin, amid concerns that the preparations will be insufficient to combat an increase in COVID-19 cases. 

Last Monday, the organisers stated that viewers will be prohibited from entering virtually all of the sites. Audiences from outside the country were already barred months ago, and authorities are now urging inhabitants to watch the Games on television in order to limit the movement of individuals who may transmit disease. Polls regularly suggest that the Japanese population is apprehensive about continuing with the Olympics amid the pandemic.

Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga's credibility has been weakened as a result of his management of the epidemic, which included a sluggish vaccine rollout at first. This is a particularly delicate topic ahead of a national election and a leadership competition inside the ruling party later this year.

On a Sunday TV show, Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato remarked, "We would encourage people to support athletes from home." Yasutoshi Nishimura, the Economy Minister who is also in command of the pandemic operation, caused uproar late Thursday when he said he will ask banks to put the squeeze on cafes which does not conform with the tougher procedures.

In a U-turn, the government's chief spokesman, Kato, said on Friday that banking sector would not urged to force pubs and restaurants that refused to comply with the government's warning to adhere supplying alcohol under the exceptional limitations.
