World health organization (WHO) sees no reason to cancel or relocate the Tokyo Olympics because of the coronavirus. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) received that message, reported John Coates, head of IOC’s coordination committee, Friday in Tokyo.
The Games begin on July 24th. In Japan, health tests have been intensified after the first death of a person infected with the virus. Coates reported that the IOC has been told informally that ‘there is no reason not to make an emergency plan to allow the Games to go ahead or move them around’. Coates also said Chinese athletes should be free to compete in Tokyo Olympic test events as long they do not transit through China on their way to Japan.
The outbreak of the virus in the Chinese city of Wuhan has already led to numerous cancellations of sporting events in China and some other countries in the far east.
