Japan in preparation to curb crowds even during holidays
Corona’s fourth state emergency was implemented in Japan’s capital Tokyo from Monday. Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga’s government announced this. Officials said that this decision was taken keeping in mind the Tokyo Olympics. This emergency will remain in force till August 22. The Tokyo Olympics will begin on July 23, and will run till August 8. The goal of the government is to stop unnecessary movement during the Olympics.
The Bonn Festival holidays will also begin in mid-August. In view of the possibility of increasing the crowd, a state emergency has been imposed. However, some people say that even if there is no spectator in the Olympics. But many people will come from outside. Due to this there will be a possibility of increasing corona infection. Among those who say so is Toshihiro Numata of Yokohama City. Minato Ward, an elderly woman in Tokyo, said the purpose of the state emergency was never understood. This never solved the problem. Similarly Toru Kamada, a resident of Yao City, said that the government should insist on intensifying the vaccination campaign.
