April 20 Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) Chief Executive Yoshihide Staunch said the cancellation of the Tokyo Olympics should also be an option if forced, sparking controversy. On the 20th, Japan’s Olympic-responsible Yukio Marukawa responded, “In a sense, this makes sense.”
(Tokyo Olympics) if it really can’t be done, we should not hesitate to cancel,” the second-order official said in an interview earlier, according to Japan’s A Current Affair.
Marukawa responded the same day, Japan’s new corona pandemic outbreak “is not without the likely” to develop to the point that no one can go out, or mutated new coronavirus constantly appear, even if the test can not confirm the infected person. If the outbreak does get serious, the Tokyo Olympics could be canceled.
