Mainichi wrote that Omi Shigeru, chairman of the GOJ subcommittee on the coronavirus response, expressed at an Upper House committee meeting on Thursday a negative view about the idea of allowing schoolchildren to participate in Tokyo Paralympics events as spectators. He reportedly said: “The infection situation is a lot worse now than it was when the Olympics were held from July 23. When considering those circumstances, one can draw a natural conclusion.”
