Muto Toshiro, Tokyo 2020 CEO says that holding the Games in 2021 is also uncertain.
I don’t think anybody can tell whether or not we can keep the current situation under control.
He says he can’t give a clear answer about the COVID-19 Pandemic. All they can do now is to prepare for the Games in the remaining year and a couple of months.
Abe Shinzo, Japan’s Prime Minister announced an emergency in two prefectures, including the cities Tokyo and Osaka. This means that Thomas Bach, President of IOC’s trip to Japan in May is also canceled.
