Tokyo olympics is uncertain

 Another wave of coronavirus is coming to Japan. Japanese policymakers are worried that the number of infections has risen sharply in recent days.

 The search for the vaccine has not yet matched, so all the steps are taken so far to control the disease and all the successes achieved in it may be washed away.

 On the other hand, the country's business sector scared about the inability to avoid bankruptcy. 

However, most concerned are all the organizations involved in arranging the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

The schedule of the 2020 Olympics has already changed. A new schedule has been set for July-August 2021.

 Yet the fate of the Olympics still hangs in the balance. Once again, this year's Olympics may have to be said goodbye overall, and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will be written in the pages of history as an event that has not happened.

If cancelled, all the billions of dollars spent on the event over the last seven years will be written off. It is unknown at this time how much it will affect the entire show.

 But it became clear during a visit to Tokyo by IOC President Thomas Bach last week that all parties were desperately trying to avoid that possibility.

During his four-day visit to Tokyo, Thomas Bach likened the Olympic Games to seeing light at the end of a dark tunnel. 

In his view, the successful organization of the Olympics will be seen as a symbol of the determination of human society by overcoming the harmful effects of the corona. 

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga echoed his remarks. Leaders of the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee are also talking about continuing their efforts to ensure the successful organization of the Olympics.

Toshiro Muto, head of the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee, gave some clear indications of how that effort would be carried out. 

He said that during the Olympics, athletes and spectators would be required to maintain a distance of at least two meters from each other at all times and the place of residence of the competitors would be reduced in addition to conducting regular corona tests at the Olympic Village. 

In other words, as soon as the participation in the respective sections of the competition is over, the athletes will be asked to say goodbye and various events will be organized to give acquaintance to each other.

No matter what the organizers say about organizing a safe Olympics by preventing the spread of the virus, the real situation in Japan says something different. 

And that's why about 80 per cent of people in Japan, especially in the capital, Tokyo, are no longer looking forward to the Olympics. 

Their idea is that it is no longer possible to stop the cancellation of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Many are already returning tickets bought in advance. 

This is a reflection of the frustration among the citizens with the Olympics.
