These measures include limiting the number of fans and even banning them completely, the agency quoted the minister as saying. Japan’s Olympic Committee already banned overseas fans from coming to the competitions in March and is now discussing how many domestic spectators might be allowed to attend.The Japanese government and Tokyo authorities are scheduled to meet with Olympic and Paralympic officials on Monday to discuss the issue.
They are likely to review the Japanese government’s plan to limit the number of domestic spectators to 10,000 people per building as long as the number does not exceed 50% capacity. The Olympic Games begin on July 23 and the Paralympic Games on August 24.
Last Thursday, the Japanese Prime Minister said that the epidemic emergency will be lifted on Sunday in all prefectures except Okinawa, while the intensified anti-virus measures in prefectures bordering Tokyo will be extended until July 11.
