东京奥运会是否会再度延期?日本政府回应

据日本共同社报道,针对近期有言论称东京奥运会可能将再次延期或停止举办,日本内阁官房长官加藤胜信1月13日回应表示,日本政府将继续为今年夏天举办东京奥运会和残奥会做准备。

The Japanese government is preparing to host the Tokyo Olympics this summer as scheduled, following a postponement caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato said on Wednesday。

1月12日,东京奥组委主席森喜朗也发表公开讲话,承诺东京奥运会所有赛事将如期举办。

#八成日本民众希望奥运会被推迟或者取消

尽管日本政府和东京奥组委强调举办东京奥运会的决心不变,但许多日本民众的信心出现了动摇。

日本共同社的一项最新民意调查显示,由于疫情呈恶化趋势,超过80%的日本民众希望东京奥运会和残奥会取消或者再次推迟举行。其中,35.3%的被调查者希望奥运会被取消,44.8%的人希望奥运会再次推迟举行。

Over 80 percent of people in Japan say this year‘s Tokyo Olympics should be cancelled or delayed as worries mount regarding a record surge in coronavirus cases across the country, a Kyodo News poll indicated on Sunday。

The survey suggested 35.3 percent want the Games to be cancelled and 44.8 percent favored another delay。 The world‘s biggest multi-sports event, postponed last year due to the pandemic, is scheduled to be held from July 23 to August 8 in the Japanese capital。

#多地进入紧急状态

目前,日本国内的疫情形势依旧严峻。

1月13日,日本首相菅义伟宣布大阪、京都和兵库县等7府县进入紧急状态,暂定持续至2月7日。此前,日本首都圈 “一都三县”——首都东京及周边的埼玉县、千叶县和神奈川县已于1月7日进入紧急状态。

紧急状态下居民的行动和商业活动受到了限制:民众被要求尽量避免外出;餐饮场所被要求缩短营业时间,在晚上8点关门。

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga declared a state of emergency over the COVID-19 pandemic in seven more prefectures, including Osaka and Aichi on Wednesday, broadening the scope of the measure amid a resurgence of the pandemic across the country。

The newly declared prefectures, including Tochigi to the north of Tokyo, Gifu in central Japan, Hyogo and Kyoto in the west, and Fukuoka to the southwest, will keep the state of emergency in place through February 7。

Under the state of emergency, people in the affected areas will be asked to refrain from making unnecessary trips outdoors, and restaurants and bars will be requested to close by 8:00 p.m。 

Japan has already declared a state of emergency for the Tokyo area last Thursday, which will also run through February 7。

The Asian country now has nearly 300,000 infections since the start of the pandemic, and over 3,900 people have lost their lives。

#全面禁止外国人入境

另据日本放送协会(NHK)1月13日的报道,日本政府将暂停与11个国家和地区实行的相互放开商务人士往来的措施,这意味着除特殊情况外日本将“全面禁止外国人入境”。

此前,由于在英国和南非等多国出现了变异新冠病毒,日本政府2020年12月26日发布消息称,该国从2020年12月28日起,暂停来自所有国家和地区的新入境,不过包括中国、韩国等11个国家和地区的商务人员、留学生和技能实习生,可在一定条件下入境日本。

Japan will suspend an exemption that allows entry by business travelers from 11 countries and regions, effectively banning all foreign travelers from entering the country, in an effort to curb the COVID-19 pandemic, broadcaster NHK reported on Wednesday。
