Nobody knows yet what the effect will be on the 2020 Olympics in Japan. The biggest sports event on the planet, it could cost Japan $26 billion. Organizers expected the event to attract an estimated 10 million people to Japan. Now the entire tournament is at risk. It’s a nightmare for the Olympic committee.
The organizing committee remains bullish that the Games will go ahead as scheduled. But of course, there will be doubts while the virus continues to spread. Japan’s Olympic Minister Seiko Hashimoto has said that Japan’s contract with the IOC allows for the rescheduling of the tournament.
