IOC confirm Olympics will go ahead

The International Olympic Committee has announced that the Olympics will go ahead.

Currently, Tokyo is under state of emergency and will be until May 31, due to Covid-19.

The IOC and local organizers have said that the11,000 athletes from 200 nations and territories will be welcomed on July 23 and will be “safe and secure.”

However, the public in Japan is not as positive. Recent polls showed that between 60-80 percent of Japanese people do not want the Olympics to open in the midst of a pandemic.

The IOC relies on selling television rights for 75% of its income. Added to this Japan has officially spent $15.4 billion to prepare the games. Government audits suggest the figure is much higher. All but $6.7 billion is public money.
