Tokyo, Jan 19- The spokesman for the Government of Japan, Katsunobu Kato, said on Tuesday that the widespread vaccination in this country against covid is not a mandatory requirement to continue with the celebration of the Tokyo Olympic Games this summer.

The committee that works on the management and prevention of the disease at the Olympic event “is investigating so that the Olympic Games are safe even without the vaccine, for example, by carrying out the necessary tests and controlling behaviors “Kato said today at his daily press conference.
In what is one of the most direct comments on the matter by the Japanese government, the government spokesman indicated that the group “will study the necessary measures in case of having the vaccine and without it,” reaffirming the position of the Japanese authorities on go ahead with the appointment.
Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga’s Administration is adamant about the Olympics. And during the opening day of the parliamentary session on the eve Suga assured that the country remains committed to holding the Tokyo 2020 Games, which have already been postponed until next July due to the pandemic.
The Japanese public has been showing more skepticism and, according to several polls recently carried out by local media, around 80% think they should be postponed or canceled again.
It was believed that the arrival of the covid vaccine would help improve prospects for the Olympics, but the distribution and administration of doses is encountering obstacles in many countries.
Japan has not yet even approved the emergency use of any of the currently available covid vaccines, pending the completion of a local study on their efficacy among Japanese.
The Government expects to have the approval of the vaccine developed by the pharmaceutical company Pfizer ready in February and to begin with the vaccination of health personnel at the end of that month, while the generalized administration among the population would not begin at least until March, according to initial plans. .
