Over 50% of Tokyo residents oppose next year's Olympics: Poll

Jun 29, 2020 15:51 IST

While the future of the postponed Tokyo 2020 is in troubled waters due to the pandemic already, according to a poll carried out by 2 Japanese news organisations, about 51.7% of the Tokyo residents have also disapproved of the event taking place next year. Out of 51.7%, 27.7% wanted the cancellation of the Summer Games and the rest 24% backed a further postponement of the event. This came after the warning issued by health experts who have said that even a year's delay may not be sufficient to conduct the event safely next year. Tokyo 2020 which was originally scheduled to take place in July this year has been postponed by a year due to the global pandemic.
