Olympic torch relay likely to be scaled back

Nikkei wrote that concern is growing among local government officials that the nationwide Olympic torch relay scheduled to start on March 25 in Fukushima may be shortened or scaled back drastically, as the GOJ has decided to extend the COVID-19 state of emergency through early March.
