Covid-19 Hits Tokyo Olympics: First coronavirus case reported from Games Village
With less than a week to go for the much-awaited Tokyo Olympics, there is bad news for fans. The Tokyo Olympics has registered its first Covid-19 case and that has created a panic in the Games village.
“There was one person in the Village. That was the very first case in the Village that was reported during the screening test,” Masa Takaya, spokesman for the Tokyo organising committee, told a press conference.
The name of the person detected with the deadly virus is yet to be revealed.
The Olympics was scheduled to take place last year, but that did not happen due to the pandemic. After a lot of discussions and meetings, the organisers decided it was safe to go ahead with it this year. But the new development could send all the plans for a toss.
