International spectators are already prohibited, but organizers claimed domestic fans might be permitted entry if the crowds did not surpass 50% of the venue’s capacity.

Fans will be required to wear face masks at all times while in venues and will not be allowed to shout or speak


The Olympics will begin on July 23 while the Paralympics will begin a month later, on August 24.

The International Olympic Committee the International Paralympic Committee the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee, the Tokyo metropolitan government, and the Japanese government indicated in a joint statement that spectator numbers for the Paralympics will be confirmed by July 16.

Despite the issuance of a report last week by Japanese medical experts stating that running the Games without spectators was the “least risky” and most desirable alternative, the decision to allow spectators was made.

“There are so many cases, both locally and abroad, of sporting events with spectators,” said Seiko Hashimoto, president of the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee.”We believe that by taking extensive steps and according to

government criteria, we will be able to hold the Games with spectators.

Delegates and sponsors will be considered organisers and will not be counted among the 10,000 spectators allowed. should the number of Covid19 infections rapidly rise, posing a threat to Japan’s healthcare systems, the five parties will consider imposing additional limitations.

This could include limiting the number of spectators at sporting events.

There is concern that the Games will result in an increase in coronavirus infections in Japan.

As a result, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga urged the Japanese public to watch the Games on television rather than attend events in person last week.

A state of emergency was removed in Tokyo on Sunday, five weeks before the commencement of the Olympics.Emergency

Due to an increase in infections, Covid19 limitations have been in effect in Japan’s capital and several prefectures since late April.

However, some “quasi emergency” measures will be in place until July 11 in select regions, including Tokyo.

A Ugandan athlete was the first to test positive for Covid19 upon arrival in Japan on Saturday.
