With Tokyo now experiencing a fifth wave of infections, prompting deeply unpopular restrictions on eating out that will remain in place until well after the Olympics, all but a handful of events will be held behind closed doors. The capital’s residents now find themselves in the unenviable position of being asked by The mere sight of the world’s greatest athletes – kept apart from the people of the host city and even from other competitors – vying for medals will “move children and younger generations”, Suga said last week. “As we confront the major challenges posed by Covid -19 around the world, it is even

Japan's Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga has declared a state of emergency for the nation's capital and surrounding areas as Covid -19 cases surge to the highest levels since the start of the pandemic.

Yoshiro Mori, the head of the Tokyo 2020 organising committee, said preparations would continue, despite growing doubts that the Games can be held while the pandemic continues. The government’s determination to push ahead with a “safe and secure” Olympics is at odds with public opinion, which has turned against the Games since Covid -19 cases began to surge in the host city and other parts of the country towards the end of last year. Several opinion polls have shown a clear majority of Japanese people oppose holding the Games this year.

, even though the Olympic Games have not yet started, COVID cases are reported almost every day in the Olympic Village, despite the severe "bubble" set up to supervise Athletes and foreign journalists.

Dr. Kenji Shibuya thinks that an explosion of this bubble is almost inevitable: "Outside the village, movements and movements of people will increase because of the games. Obviously, there are risks to see infections in the Olympic village, or among the journalists who will then bring the virus back to their countries. But what worries me the most is the message of the government that says people should stay at home during the Olympics, while being proud to welcome them and celebrate them.

On Friday, the head of the Tokyo 2020 organising committee, Seiko Hashimoto, said it would be “very difficult” to realise a planned visit to Japan by IOC president Thomas Bach from 17 May while parts of the country were under coronavirus

The Tokyo 2020 Olympics, postponed for a year due to the global pandemic, is being held mostly without spectators and under tight quarantine rules. Athletes are just starting to arrive for the Games which runs 23 July through 8 August.

The restrictions established in Japan, multiplied by the holding of the Olympic Games, make the daily lives of the difficult population. Suda Akio, the President of the Tokyo Physician Association, is still worried about the increase in the number of infections and deaths, but also the suicide rate in the archipelago. "Last year, there was an increase of nearly 1,000 suicides among young women, he said. In addition, some people are afraid of being contaminated if they go to the hospital, so they do not go there. It is estimated that about 1,000 people with cancers have not been treated because of that.

The state of emergency has been declared in Tokyo for the duration of the Games, but for doctors, it is not sufficient to preserve the population of the risk of contamination.
