'Tough to host Olympics if the virus continues'

Apr 29, 2020 16:08 IST

As the pandemic casts doubt on the future of next year's postponed Tokyo Olympics, on Wednesday Japanese Prime Minister admitted that it would be difficult to host the summer games if the pandemic is not contained. He further said that the Olympics must be held in a way that shows the world has won its battle against the pandemic otherwise it will be hard to hold the games. Earlier this week the Olympic organizing committee's president, Yoshiro Mori, and the head of Japan Medical Association also hinted towards the difficulties of hosting the games next year if there is no vaccine in place.
