We forced the Olympics to be held, and also held a welcome party. On the other hand, Governor Koike, who said to the public, “Please refrain from going out and crossing the border between prefectures,” is flooded with angry voices on Twitter.
《But I will play the Olympics. All right? 》
《I can’t refrain from going out (laughs) Bach made a round trip across prefectures (laughs)》
《Don’t go out even though the Olympics are open》
《We were welcome parties, the Olympics, and we could do whatever we wanted and refrain from going out to the people.》
