Japan intends to introduce a state of emergency in the capital for the period before the opening and for the entire duration of the Olympic Games, NHK reports.

"The government has decided to impose the fourth " emergency state" from July 12 to August 22 in Tokyo, where the coronavirus infection continues to spread," the statement said.

Japan's Economy Minister Nishimura Yasutoshi, who heads the government coronavirus program, said that the state of emergency in Tokyo would begin on July 12 and last until August 22.

The Olympics in Tokyo was supposed to take place in Tokyo last summer. But the pandemic made the organizers re-schedule the Games for 2021. For now, the estimated dates are July 23-August 8.
