Chiba Prefecture has halted visits by students to watch the Paralympic Games, public broadcaster NHK said Monday, after a school in the prefectural capital confirmed COVID-19 infections in two teachers who had accompanied students to the event.

The school in the city of Chiba was also closed for the rest of this week due to the infections, a city official said Monday. The city had said earlier Monday it would continue with the Paralympic visits with appropriate safety measures despite the cases.
