Among them, Kentaro Iwata, an infectious disease expert at Kobe University in Japan, who previously disclosed the real situation of the Diamond Princess cruise ship, said, I dont think holding the Olympic Games in 2021 is a realistic goal.
Iwata and other experts said risk reduction must be considered if the Tokyo Olympics is to be held on schedule. Some, including Iwata, suggest that the IOC may even ban delegation from countries with high communication rates, such as the United States.
Novel coronavirus pneumonia is draw further apart from the new outbreak of pneumonia, Iwata said.
In addition, experts have suggested that the sports with the highest communication risk, such as rugby, should be cancelled or the number of 11000 athletes should be reduced. However, the International Olympic Committee and local organizers have not considered these two options at present.
At the same time, Japans enthusiasm for hosting the Olympic Games seems to be getting lower and lower.
According to the nhk22 public opinion survey, 35% of the people think that the Tokyo Olympics should be postponed again, and 31% of the people think it should be terminated. In other words, seven out of every 10 Japanese think that the Olympic Games will not be held on schedule next year.
