Japan PM vows to press forward with Olympics amid virus surge


Tokyo, January 18

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga vowed on Monday to forge ahead with preparations to hold the Tokyo Olympics this summer, in the face of growing public opposition to the Games as the country battles a surge in COVID-19 cases.

“We will press ahead with preparations, with determination of building watertight anti-infection measures and holding an event that can bring hope and courage to the world,” Suga said in his policy speech at the start of a regular session of parliament. —Reuters
