Ryukyu Shimpo reported that the Okinawa Defense Bureau is likely to resume on June 12 construction of the Futenma replacement facility off Camp Schwab that has been suspended since mid-April after a worker tested positive for COVID-19. Operations to transport earth and sand for landfill will probably begin next week. Noting that base opponents won a majority in the prefectural assembly race held on Sunday, the daily said the resumption of the work will fly in the face of the election results.
