On Friday, Toshiro Muto the CEO of Tokyo Games said that he is still not sure whether the postponed Olympics will be held even next year.
Japanese PM Shinzo Abe announced a complete lockdown this week and was criticized by several opposition leaders. People said that he was too late to act against the problems faced due to COVID-19. Japan has recently reported 100 fatalities and more than 5,000 coronavirus cases.
The Chief Executive Officer also added that until travel restrictions it is impossible for the participants to travel. Also, it is still questionable whether this disease will slow down or not. He further said that it’s better to put efforts into treating and fighting this disease. Instead of looking for any alternatives for the Olympics.
