Tokyo will Decide on Fans at the Olympics in the Short Term

The Japanese government will soon decide whether to admit spectators to the games of the Olympic Games in Tokyo.


A government spokesman said a ruling would be made before the end of this month. This only concerns visitors from their own country.

According to the latest reports in the Japanese media, there is a proposal on the table for 10,000 visitors per event. It has already become clear that, due to the corona pandemic, visitors from abroad are not welcome.

Not all sports venues can accommodate 10,000 attendees. According to the proposal, 50 percent of the capacity should be used for the smaller slopes. The authorities will depend on how the infection rate develops in the country in the coming days and weeks.

Olympic Games participants and supervisors will have to adhere to very strict guidelines in connection with the virus.
