According to Kyodo News Agency, several Japanese government officials revealed on the 22nd that the Japanese government’s plan to host the Tokyo Olympic Games without spectators as an option emerged.
This is to imagine that the COVID-19 epidemic will not calm down by the opening of the Olympic Games, hoping to avoid cancellation or further postponement while prioritizing the safety of athletes and Olympic-related personnel.
Senior Japanese government officials told Kyodo News Agency that it was increasingly difficult to hold the Olympic Games without an audience ceiling because the epidemic would be difficult to calm down before the summer.
If it is taken in the form of empty space, it is expected to lose 90 billion yen of ticket revenue.
Considering the audience holding the sold tickets, Japan is also discussing the plan to make vaccination a condition for entering the periphery of the venue in order to accommodate a certain audience.
