  • No need to prioritise vaccination of Tokyo Olympics participants: WHO expert

The International Olympic Committee and the local organisers are expected to roll out "Playbooks" next week that are to provide step-by-step details about how athletes and thousands of others will get safely in and out of Tokyo.

"I am writing to encourage you to consider relocating the 2021 Olympics from Tokyo, Japan to the United States of America, and more specifically to Florida", Patronis wrote.

Scheduled for July and August, the event is coming under an increasing large cloud as Japan continued to battle the Covid-19 pandemic. The cumulative death toll from the virus in Japan topped 5,000 over the weekend.

Patronis praised Florida's hotel capacity and transportation infrastructure, and used the 2020 National Basketball Association "bubble" as an example.

"We fully understand the pressure the health care system is under right now", Spence told The Associated Press.

Speaking to talkSPORT radio, Farah said: 'What they have said to us is basically everyone will be able to get Covid injections and after that it's less risk of spreading the disease, and then from there just see what happens and take one day at a time.

"Additionally, our global tourist destinations, like Disney parks have been open and operating safely in Florida for some time".

The IOC will meet again on Wednesday, less than six months before the event is due to start, to tackle questions over COVID-19 vaccination of athletes, worldwide visitors, and the attendance of spectators, and safety regulations among other matters. Any talk of scrapping the event altogether is unlikely, according to reports.

"Well, that's a lot of steps that need to take place and I don't know the entire process of the Olympics, but I would certainly send you to the U.S. Olympic Committee and the International Olympic Committee first on what their assessment of that offer is, and certainly of course what their assessment is of Japan's preparedness for the Olympics", she said.

"I have seen British Paralympians being vaccinated - because they are seen as vulnerable members of society - I have seen some athletes, I think in Israel, that have been vaccinated", said the IPC spokesperson.

The World Health Organization says it's providing advice to the IOC.

Florida, the third most populated state in the United States now has the fourth-highest death toll from the CCP virus nationwide. California, the most populous state which had one of the harshest lockdown and restrictions to fight the pandemic has the second-highest death toll, after NY.

As many athletes and fans wonder about the future of the Tokyo Olympics, a Brock University professor says cancelling the games is not necessarily as easy as it may appear.
