NHK reported this morning that the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) is planning to light up the Rainbow Bridge in red in the event that the COVID-19 situation in the prefecture worsens again. The network said Tokyo is planning to gradually relax its request for business operators to temporarily close after the state of emergency is lifted, but will reissue the request if the infection situation worsens. According to the network, in order to inform people of the COVID-19 infection situation after the state of emergency is lifted, the TMG will light up the Rainbow Bridge in seven different colors representing the scale it has established. If the situation deteriorates, the TMG will light up the bridge in red to inform residents that a “Tokyo alert” has been issued.
