Japan extends Covid restrictions as Olympics loom – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

A state of emergency has been extended in several regions of Japan as Covid-19 cases surge, less than three months before the Tokyo Olympics.
Restrictions in Tokyo, Osaka, Hyogo and Kyoto had been due to end on 11 May, but will now remain in place until the end of the month.

Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga also said they had added Aichi and Fukuoka to the regions under a state of emergency.

The move casts more doubt on whether the Olympics will go ahead as planned.

Covid is the main issue that needs to be resolved first before any Olympics start ahead

Olympic games have been in trouble every 40 years.

1940 canceled by war
1980 boycotted by political reason
2020 postponed by COVID19

Trust Jesus today, time's about up.
1 Corinthians 15:3-4
Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, was buried and rose again the third day according to the scriptures.

Romans 10:9-10
⁹ that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
¹⁰For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Call on Jesus today
FYI (when Millions of people vanish,, Jesus took us Christians home to protect us from the Trib, it wasn't the aliens they are pushing (demonic manifestation) to explain away the rapture to deceive the left behind unbelievers

Give it up Japan, no Olympics for you this year

Just cancel em. Nobody watches the decreasingly interesting Olympic coverage anyways. Used to be mainly live footage of the events. Now it's a tiny fraction of a few events spliced with half hour tell-alls about some random athlete who overcame adversity and now is the worlds' best one-armed pole vaulter or something.
