Two weeks before the Olympics, Japan PM declares a state of emergency in Tokyo



IOC President Thomas Bach arrived in Tokyo on Thursday, just as Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga announced a state of emergency in the city due to rising coronavirus infections.The state of emergency will take effect on Monday and last through August 22, according to Suga. The Olympics, which will take place from July 23 through August 8, will be held entirely under transient conditions.

Suga said the state of emergency was needed to “prevent the resurgence of the future spread on cases across the country.” The Olympics, which will take place from July 23 through August 8, will be held entirely under transient conditions. Due to the season, Bach slipped by the monitors at Tokyo's Haneda Airport and made his way to the International Olympic Committee's games headquarters in Tokyo, a five-star hotel in the city's center.

He'll have to self-isolate for three days, according to reports. Bach's visit comes barely two weeks before the start of the rescheduled Tokyo Olympics. Despite resistance from the Japanese primary health care establishment, the IOC and local organizers are trying to host the games amid a pandemic. The emergency's major focus is a demand that bars, restaurants, and karaoke parlors that provide alcohol shut.“How to stop people enjoying the Olympics from going out for drinks is the main issue,” Health Minister Norihisa Tamura said.
