All national dailies wrote that the organizers of the Tokyo Paralympics are making final arrangements to hold the Games without spectators at venues in Tokyo, Saitama, and Chiba Prefectures, which are currently under a coronavirus state of emergency. The Tokyo organizers are planning to discuss the matter with the International Paralympic Committee, the GOJ, and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government on Aug. 16. Regarding Paralympic events to be held in Shizuoka Prefecture, where a quasi-state of emergency is in place, the Tokyo organizers are looking into the idea of allowing up to 5,000 spectators. The organizers are also discussing whether to allow students to watch events live at venues as part of school programs.
