To avoid the spread of Covid-19, the Tokyo 2020 Games, which are set to begin on Friday, are being conducted under unprecedented conditions, including strict quarantine rules
About 950 individuals, including officials and journalists, will watch the Tokyo Olympics' opening ceremony on Friday at the main stadium, which is closed to spectators, according to one of the organisers.
Aside from that, Hidemasa Nakamura, chief of Tokyo 2020's primary operation centre, said at a news conference on Thursday that performers and athletes competing in the Games would be included.
To avoid the spread of Covid-19, the Tokyo 2020 Games, which are set to begin on Friday, are being conducted under unprecedented conditions, including strict quarantine rules.
Despite this, a number of cases involving athletes and others linked with the Games have already surfaced.
Two athletes living in the Olympic village tested positive for Covid-19 on Thursday, according to Tokyo 2020 organisers.
Overall, 11 new positive instances were disclosed by the organisers, including the two athletes, increasing the total to 86.
When asked about the 87 Covid-19 infections among athletes, officials, and journalists, he indicated that totally eradicating the virus was "very difficult," hence it was critical to discover and treat any new cases as soon as possible.
On the eve of the Tokyo Games, the director of the opening ceremony was fired over a Holocaust joke, and former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, a strong supporter of the Games, was rumoured to be skipping the main event.
The announcement is the latest in a series of embarrassments for Tokyo organisers, and it comes just days after a well-known musician was forced to resign as the ceremony's composer when longstanding allegations of bullying and abuse surfaced.
Kentaro Kobayashi was sacked from the Tokyo Olympic Games on Thursday after a joke he made about the Holocaust as part of his comedy act in the 1990s resurfaced in domestic media.
