CKTB - NEWS - Olympics

Japan is set to place Tokyo under a state of emergency that would last through the Olympics, fearing a COVID-19 surge will multiply during the Games.
    
The emergency announced today will last from next Monday to August 22nd.

The Olympics begin July 23rd and close August 8th.
    
The decision likely means the athletic competitions and ceremonies will be held without fans, after foreign spectators were banned earlier.
