Protests against Tokyo Olympics as Japan suffers Covid surge

BBC, 15 Apr 2021
With just one hundred days to go before the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics in July, the city is seeing protests calling for the Games to be delayed.

The torch relay is under way and athletes around the world are back in training. The organisers insist it's full steam ahead but public support in Japan remains extremely low.

The country is facing a fourth wave of Covid infections, with less than 1% of the population having received a vaccination.
