Tokyo Olympics to go ahead ‘with or without Covid’



Tokyo’s postponed Summer Olympic Games will go ahead “without or without COVID,” the Vice-President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), John Coates said on Monday.

“It will take place with or without COVID. The Games will start on July 23, next year,” Coates told the AFP, adding that the Olympics will be remembered as the “Games that conquered COVID.”

Earlier in July, the IOC floated the idea of hosting the event with a “limited audience”, which was later rejected.
