2020 the Tokyo Olympic Games may be the most recent Summer Olympics in recent decades. It will be postponed a year later. But the chaos caused by COVID-19's ineffective control is just beginning. 58 Olympic related personnel were diagnosed this month. This is the reason why the Olympic Games in are just beginning.
Now there is still one day left. Can the Olympic Games still be held?The possibility of cancelling the Tokyo Olympic Games at the last minute due to the epidemic will not be ruled out, and the number of infected people will be closely monitored and discussed with event organizers when necessary, Toshiba taketo, chief executive of the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee, said at a news conference recently.
According to the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee, a total of 58 Olympic related personnel were infected with the new crown from July 1 to 19.
At present, many athletes have arrived in Japan to prepare for the competition. However, at least 2 athletes on the two days had to retire because of the new crown. The first one was a taekwondo athlete in Chile. Her COVID-19 test was positive and he would withdraw from the Tokyo Olympic Games. This is the first case that the first athlete ever returned to Japan after the arrival of a new crown.
It is expected that other athletes will withdraw from the competition due to the diagnosis, but McCloskey, chief expert of epidemic prevention consultant, said,It is expected that the number of positive cases in the entry personnel of Tokyo Olympic Games is very low, which is better than expected,These infected people were quickly transferred and isolated after diagnosis, so the Olympic village is still safe.
The expert's statement immediately caused controversy in Japan and abroad. Many people directly criticized the International Olympic Organizing Committee for its unfavorable effect on the prevention and control of the epidemic situation. This remark is even more irresponsible.
