The president of the Tokyo Olympics, an organizer of the Games, admitted that the athletes were “probably very worried” after becoming the first person in the village to give a positive result for Covid-19.
The 14-day quarantine at a hotel is one of 15 incidents reported in connection with Saturday’s Games.
When the organizer was in Japan, he tested negative before giving a positive test in the village selection.
Seiko Hashimoto, president of the Games, said, “Athletes coming to Japan are probably very worried. I understand that.”
“It simply came to our notice then.
“We are doing our best to prevent any Covid fire. If we encounter an epidemic, we will make sure we have a plan to respond.”
The Games, which have been postponed for a year due to the global epidemic, are largely spectator-free and under strict quarantine rules, and Tokyo is currently in a state of emergency until at least August 22 due to the growing number of Kovid-19s.
Along with the Olympics, which will be held from July 23 to August 8, athletes who will be tested every day are coming to Tokyo.
