The Tokyo Olympics could take place behind closed doors if coronavirus cases continue to rise. This was stated by Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, saying that spectators could be excluded from competitions if the pandemic situation worsens. “There is a possibility that there will be no spectators” at the Games, Suga said. “Our top priority is to protect the Japanese people,” he added. Citing its sources on condition of anonymity, the daily ‘Yomiuri Shimbun’ writes today that spectators could be excluded from events that take place in the evening or in large venues. “Infections are increasing in Tokyo and other places and people are calling for the strengthening of prevention measures”, reads Yomiuri.
