Meanwhile, WHO had said that the success of Tokyo Olympic will depend on how infections are handled
Drector General of the World Health Organisation (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyeus said the success of the Tokyo Olympic will depend on how well cases of COVID are handled.

Speaking at a meeting of the International Olympic Committee in Tokyo, Tedros said the right plan should be put in place.

“The mark of success is making sure that any cases are identified, isolated, traced and cared for as quickly as possible and onward transmission is interrupted,” he said.

“It’s my sincerest hope that they succeed not only for the sake of the games themselves and the safety of the athletes, trainers and officials, but as a demonstration of what’s possible with the right plans and the right measures.”
