Olympic torch event to be scaled down

All national papers reported that the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee has decided to scale back the ceremony for the arrival of the Olympic torch scheduled for March 20 at an ASDF base in Miyagi Prefecture on account of the coronavirus outbreak, saying that only 250 guests, instead of the initially planned 1,000, will be invited. The committee may also urge the general public not to come and watch the nationwide torch relay that is expected to start in Fukushima Prefecture on March 26.
