rising cold in 1900 cases in the capital. also, many members of the public were not there to greet the flame authorities announced the state of emergency in tokyo for the duration of the games to try to curb to spread the virus. amid fears of the delta variance, the measure mostly limits alcohol sales and restaurant opening hours to try to stop contagion. but it also means these will be the 1st limpid games without fans and attendance. stadiums like this one will be mostly empty. to the government restrictions for tokyo site i'mma can i go well and chiva prefecture would have kept event attendance at 50 percent, the venue capacity up to $5000.00 people. so the data to go to this ago, we haven't decided to allow no fans during the games as a stricter measure to prevent further spread of the virus 90 my stuff. the decision
8:03 am
has put a damper on the mood, just 2 weeks ahead of the opening ceremony. post show large swaths of the public don't want the games to take place. some people are even taking to the streets. who do people? i don't think we should hold the olympics in such a situation together with these people who share my same opinion. we want to protest against the olympics till the very end and we want them to be cancelled. that's why i came here today. the organizers are not giving up and are determined to move forward. the olympic flame may be small right now, but they hope it will help spark enthusiasm ahead of these unprecedented game wall. it's bringing journalists mountain. fritzy joins us from tokyo mountain. the olympic flame has arrived in tokyo to quite
8:04 am
a lackluster reception. how much enthusiasm overall is there in japan for the games? well, i think there's a variety of rather harsh reactions here to the decision yesterday. not too low, and he's been taken into the stadiums. many japanese who were able to get the tickets 2 years ago, naturally disappointed. and so the $80000.00 volunteers who spent a month preparing and will not have much to do without spectators. and overall, i think there's a sense of defeat here. many japanese still don't want the olympics to happen, so they are dissatisfied and angry. and you can see that on social media and restaurant owners complain that they have to close early in the evening and are not allowed to so which frightens their likelihood. and all of this just for the olympics to be staged. and another part of the public in japan is that the japan has broken its promise to make these games a success without spectators. that hardly seems possible any more. and some
8:05 am

8:06 am
this is being done with an eye on the some of the big switch begin in 2 weeks today . and it is imperative to prevent depend them from effecting the staging of the game. so the virus must be contained now as far as possible. that is the idea how the immunization program going there. and the late up to the games, immunization rates had been quite low. has there been some improvement that's taken problem. the government had to take into account yesterday in its decision the vaccination speed has risen quite a lot. now about 15 percent of the japanese population vaccinated twice and about 25 percent. have gotten one shot. but at the moment, japan is running low on vaccines, so the speed of explanations cannot be increased. and that is also another reason why this state of emergency will last until the middle of august. and
