Number of foreign athletes and staff attending Tokyo games to be reduced

NHK reported this morning on the finding from a government source that arrangements are being made to reduce the number of foreign athletes and delegates visiting Japan to attend the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics to about 94,000, less than half of the original plan, to prevent the new coronavirus from spreading further. The network said President Hashimoto of the Tokyo Olympics organizing committee said last week that it will be easier to implement COVID-19 measures if the number of visitors is kept as low as possible.
