Yuriko Koike , governor of Tokyo , is not considering suspending the Olympic Games that, in principle, will be held between July 24 and August 9. Despite the threat posed by the global coronavirus epidemic to the event, this possibility has once again dissipated.
“ It is impossible to cancel the Olympic Games or organize them without a spectator , as I have already said. As a host city, what matters most to us is knowing how to organize the Games while respecting high safety standards. To do this, we must beat the new coronavirus, “he explained.
This position goes hand in hand with the International Olympic Committee , which organized a meeting with international federations in which it positioned itself in favor of maintaining the Games.
