The Village, the Olympic epicenter, will not bustle in Tokyo (July 23-August 8) as in other Games. He International Olympic Committee, to reduce interaction in a scenario where it is already assumed that you will compete with the threat of COVID-19, limit the number of athletes in the venue. To do this, it works with national committees in a plan so that there are no more than 5,000 of the 11,000 planned at the same time. This happens because they enter the Villa at most five days before their competition and leave it within 48 hours., as confirmed by IOC sources.

The ‘bubble mode’ will be strict for athletes, with continuous temperature controls and PCR tests agreed every few days. In the The opening and closing ceremonies would thus also cut the number in half.

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga assured at the opening of the new year of parliament that they are preparing the appointment “as proof that humanity has overcome the new coronavirus.” But 11 of the 47 prefectures are in a state of alarm.

The IOC practically rules out that the contingent of athletes can arrive vaccinated at the appointment. “It would be the ideal solution”, slide from the agency, which highlights in this sense the working group that maintains with the World Health Organization (WHO). But they are suspicious that the vaccination of the group is not understood in Western countries when it has not yet reached risk groups.
