The delayed Tokyo Olympics could not be held next year if conditions surrounding the coronavirus pandemic continue as they are, the president of the organising committee said yesterday, reports Associated Press.
In an interview with Japanese broadcaster, NHK, Yoshiro Mori said he was hopeful the situation would improve and suggested a vaccine was the key.
“If this kind of situation (with COVID-19) continues, is it possible to hold the games?” Mori was asked by NHK.
“If the current situation continues, we couldn’t,” Mori replied, speaking in Japanese. (Guardian)
