According to the French news agency AFP, in an interview with Japan’s Kyodo News on Thursday, the head of the IOC said that at this time we have no reason to believe that 23 The Tokyo Olympics will not start in July. That is why we have no ‘Plan B’ and that is why we are fully committed to making these games safe and successful. More than six months after the Olympics were postponed; doubts have been raised about whether this major sporting event will take place while the epidemic is still spreading around the world. Organizers of the Tokyo Olympics have planned large-scale security measures, which they say will help organize the Games, even if the corona epidemic is not small and vaccines are not available.

On the other hand, public support for the Olympics in Japan has declined. According to a recent poll, more than 80% of people say games should be canceled or rescheduled.

This spring, a decision will be made on whether foreign spectators will be eligible to participate in the Tokyo Olympics, and how many spectators will be allowed to watch the games.
