Olympic Games Committee is considering postponing the world show courtesy of coronavirus pandemic.
The committee president Yoshiro Mori today, said while addressing a press conference that they have decided on postponing the Olympics, but they cant consider it as a realistic option either.
“‘I’m not so foolish as to insist that the Olympics go ahead as initially planned’ given the spread and impact the novel coronavirus crisis has inflicted across the world,” Mori said.
The global event was to kick off Tokyo, Japan in July.
The Olympic torch relay — which is due to start on Thursday — will go ahead as planned for now, even though that schedule is also open to change, Muto said. A crowd of 500 people formed despite government warnings when the Olympic flame arrived in Japan on Friday.
