Announcing that the PCR tests performed while the athletes were in the 14-day quarantine period were positive, the committee did not provide information about the health status and nationality of the athletes.
The committee also announced that the virus was detected in an athlete who arrived in Japan but was not admitted to the Olympic campus, as well as 5 officials in the tournament, a press member, and a contract employee. Thus, the number of Covid-19 cases announced by the committee and recorded in the tournament increased to 55.
In March 2020, it was announced that spectators would not be accepted from outside Japan, and in the previous week, spectators from within the country would not be accepted. Only athletes, federation officials, and members of the press are admitted to the tournament.
Athletes who will compete in the tournament and foreign officials will be accommodated in the Olympic district, which was put into service on July 13 and has a capacity of 21 buildings, 3 thousand 600 rooms, and 18 thousand beds.
The Olympic Games, which were postponed to 2021 due to the epidemic, will be held from 23 July to 8 August 2021.
