Japan: Upcoming Tokyo Paralympics To Face Difficulties

The upcoming Tokyo Paralympics will be held under "very difficult" circumstances, organisers say. Hospitals in the host city overstretched as Japan battles worse wave of Covid-19 infections. New 12 cases confirmed on Friday among Paralympic participants, including one athlete. Organisers call for domestic Games officials to avoid eating out or drinking in groups and pledge thorough testing.
While the number of athletes and officials travelling from abroad is less than a third of that during the Olympics, the health situation in Japan has worsened with record-high daily case numbers being reported.
