On Friday, the head of the Tokyo Olympics was forced to reassure the world that the postponed Games would reopen in just three months and would not be canceled despite growing cases of Kovid-19 in Japan.
"If there were any conditions under which the Olympics would be canceled", this question was asked at a news conference from Organizing committee President Seiko Hashimoto.
kinds of questions come as the general secretary of the ruling LDP political party and the No 2 in charge, Toshihiro Nikai, raised the possibility the day before.
Hashimoto said that there are a different variety of concerns but as the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee we are not thinking about canceling the games.
During an interview on Thursday Nikai was asked if cancellation was still an option.
He replied, "Of course,". He also said that if the Olympics caused a surge in infections "there would be no meaning to having the Olympics".
Nikai later tried to back down, and Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga said in a statement on Thursday that there had been no change in the government's position on holding a safe Olympics.
Hashimoto acknowledged Nikai's concern, suggesting that it may have been shared by the Japanese, and said that the poll showed that about 80% of Japanese people oppose holding the Olympics during the epidemic.
She said that The fact that he (Nikai) is concerned is a point that we need to take seriously as Tokyo 2020. "His comment has reminded us of how monotonous it was for us to feel confident or be fully prepared for delivering the games".
On Thursday, Japan's second-immense metropolitan area of Osaka recorded 1,208 new cases. It was the third straight day that new cases exceed 1,000. Tokyo has 729 cases, its high rise total in more than two months.Dr. Dhillon Randeep
