TOKYO: The Tokyo Olympics will go on regardless of whether the city is under a highly sensitive situation because of COVID-19, a top Olympic authority said on Friday, highlighting the difficulties confronting coordinators of the pandemic-hit Games.
With only nine weeks until the Games get in progress, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) looked to quiet apprehensions in Japan that the occasion would introduce a weight to a clinical framework effectively under strain from the pandemic toward the finish of a three-day virtual gathering to talk about arrangements.

"We need to ensure we secure clinical faculty such that won't trouble neighborhood clinical benefits," said Hashimoto.
The Canadian swimming crew turned into the furthest down the line assignment to pull out of a pre-Olympic instructional course in Japan in front of the Games due to Covid fears.
