The Japanese government is seeking to extend a state of emergency in Tokyo and three other areas until the end of May, in an effort to curb a surge in coronavirus cases with fewer than three months before the start of the Tokyo Olympics. Japan had hoped a "short and powerful" state of emergency would contain a fourth wave of infections, but Economy Minister Yasutoshi Nishimura said new cases in Tokyo and Osaka are still at a high level. Extending the state of emergency to May 31 leaves a margin of less than two months before the Games, which are due to start on July 23 after being postponed by a year over the pandemic.

Oil prices edged up in early Asian trade after a 1% dip in the previous session, as global economic recovery and easing travel curbs in the United States and Europe buoyed the fuel demand outlook while the surging pandemic in India capped prices. Brent crude futures for July were at $68.17 a barrel by 0052 GMT, up 8 cents, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude for June rose 9 cents to $64.80. Both Brent and WTI are on track for a second weekly gain as easing restrictions on movement in the United States and Europe, recovering factory operations and coronavirus vaccinations pave the way for a revival in fuel demand, while pent-up summer travel is likely to give gasoline and jet fuel consumption a further boost.

The Alberta Sheriff Highway Patrol, along with some law enforcement partners, wrapped up a three-day commercial vehicle safety campaign on Thursday that involved hundreds of additional inspections. The campaign was conducted as part of Roadcheck 2021, a North America-wide safety program. In Alberta, officials said the campaign is intended to ensure commercial vehicles and their drivers operate safely on the roads. "There's a large chunk of the trucks that travel on Alberta highways, are very safe trucks and we've got good carriers in Alberta, but obviously there are trucks that do need our attention at times and these inspections tend to pick those trucks out," said Sheriff Shawn Lester. On Thursday, trucks moved slowly throw a commercial vehicle weigh scale near Balzac, and some were randomly picked and directed to a large lot. According to Lester, that's where officers examine driver documents, check hours of service and conduct a 37-step vehicle safety inspection. Sheriff Shawn Lester said though most trucks that travel on Alberta highways are safe, there are those that need the attention of an inspection.(Dave Gilson/CBC) That inspection includes a look at brakes, steering, tires, lights, suspension, the fuel system and how cargo is secured. Most drivers pass inspections, but those that don't can face orders to fix problems and can also be taken off the road. Veteran driver Leon van den Hadelkamp said he supports these types of programs. "Needless to say, every vehicle on the road needs to be safe," he said. Sheriffs said they also share information with drivers and gather safety statistics. They performed 727 inspections during Roadcheck last year.
Those with addictions in the custody of Prince Albert police now have access to onsite paramedic attention. Police and Parkland Ambulance Care have teamed up with the Saskatchewan Health Authority for a new one-year pilot project. Paramedics will be at the detention centre seven days a week between 7:30 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. to offer health-care intervention for addicts — particularly to those who need support to stabilize and detoxify. In the past, if someone in detention said they felt sick, police — who typically have limited medical knowledge — would often have to make the choice to simply send them to a hospital. Now with paramedic staff onsite, people who are incarcerated in cells can be triaged, assessed, treated and, if needed, transported to hospital. "The Prince Albert Police Service is committed to working with our community partners to ensure the health and safety of the public," Chief Jonathan Bergen said in a Thursday news release from the Saskatchewan Health Authority. "This partnership supports our organization's shared goals, and provides a more comprehensive approach to the supervision and safety of those in custody. We are excited to partner on this integrated approach to health." Police say they make nearly 6,000 arrests each year in Prince Albert, with many arrests made due to alcohol or drug intoxication. The health authority says the problem has grown worse. "Our physicians and other health staff have also noted the increased presentation of addiction intoxication over the last two years," Jennifer Suchorab, the authority's director of mental health and addictions for northeast Saskatchewan, said in the news release. A holistic approach This same paramedic presence initiative ran in Prince Albert for one year in 2018. The project is funded through the provincial mental health and addictions budget. Lyle Karasiuk is director of public affairs for Parkland Ambulance Care in Prince Albert. (Ryan Pilon/CBC) Lyle Karasiuk, director of public affairs for Parkland Ambulance Care, says he expects the program to benefit both those detained and the community as a whole. "Often the Prince Albert Police Service might pick up someone who has alcohol intoxication or is under the influence of drugs. But sometimes these substances just don't manifest right away, but hours afterwards," Karasiuk said in an interview with CBC. "And so they could be acutely ill an hour or two hours from now. And that's the life-saving care that our paramedics are going to be providing at the right time, the right place and in very effective ways." Karasiuk says Saskatoon and Regina police also have paramedics in their cellbocks and have had success. "I think that we have an opportunity here to start looking at a holistic approach. I think we're going to be able to show some really definite care needs and some really good success stories going forward," Karasiuk said. He says he hopes to eventually expand the program, with paramedics connecting people in detention centres struggling with addiction with counselling services and housing programs. "We need to stop thinking of of people who have addictions as people from a walk of life that we should just put the blinders on and walk really quickly down the street," Karasiuk said. "These are somebody's loved ones, somebody's mother, father, brother, sister ... just like everyone else. They deserve equally our dignity and our respect."
Secondary school students could soon find themselves no longer required to wear face coverings. Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has said the government plans to lift the requirement for pupils in England as part of the third step of its roadmap out of lockdown. "Removing face masks will hugely improve interactions between teachers and students, while all other school safety measures will remain in place to help keep the virus out of classrooms."
Alberta Health Services (AHS) has taken legal action against a planned protest at a central Alberta restaurant that was closed Wednesday for repeatedly violating the province's COVID-19 health restrictions. AHS has been granted a preemptive injunction by the Court of Queen's Bench against a rally planned by the operator of the Whistle Stop Café in Mirror, Alta. A news release from AHS says the event is an illegal public gathering that does not comply with Chief Medical Officer of Health Order requirements for masking, attendance limits and physical distancing. "The order restrains the owner and others from organizing, promoting and attending the event and includes police enforcement and imposes significant consequences on the organizers of this event and deters others from organizing similar events in the future," states the release. The protest was promoted on social media and was planned for this weekend. "It is extremely disappointing that people would knowingly put their fellow Albertans at risk by ignoring the current rules, particularly with increasing cases and the growing pressure on our healthcare system," states the release from AHS. The injunction comes a day after health inspectors "physically closed" the cafe in Mirror, which operated for months in defiance of public health orders intended to curb the spread of COVID-19. WATCH | Whistle Stop shut down by health officials The Whistle Stop is located about 70 kilometres northeast of Red Deer and includes a restaurant, convenience store, gas station and campground.

Since Myanmar's military ordered telecoms operators to shut their networks in an effort to end protests against its February coup, Telenor's business there has been in limbo. As one of the few Western companies to bet on the South East Asian country after it emerged from military dictatorship a decade ago, the return to army rule led to a $783 million write-off this week for Norway's Telenor. The Norwegian state-controlled firm, one of the biggest foreign investors in Myanmar, must now decide whether to ride out the turmoil, or withdraw from a market which last year contributed 7% of its earnings.
