Japan to explore ‘simplified’ Olympics, says Tokyo governor
- Possible changes for Games next year being discussed
- Mandatory testing and limited movement among options
Tokyo’s governor Yuriko Koike has said it may be necessary to a stage a “simplified” Olympics next year due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and that organisers were already discussing possible changes.
Koike’s comments come after the Yomiuri newspaper reported that various options, such as mandatory coronavirus testing and having fewer spectators, were being considered by organisers.
