According to Kyodo News Agency on February 7, the latest poll shows that 47% of the respondents want the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics and 35% want to cancel.
In view of the spread of the coronavirus epidemic, Japanese Prime Minister Suga did not deny the possibility of hosting the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games this summer at a press conference on the 2nd.
He said, “About the audience, we will also put the hosting of a safe and secure Olympic Games first to promote the discussion while considering the coronavirus epidemic.”
Focusing on the ceiling of the number of Olympic spectators and whether to accept overseas spectators, Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee Chairman Yoshiro Mori motioned not to remove the empty venue from the option.
It can be seen that Suga has actually endorsed the idea.
Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato also explained at a press conference on January 29 that the Tokyo Olympic Games were held, saying, “At this stage, various scenarios are being envisaged in the simulation.”
