Japan may cancel Tokyo Olympics over coronavirus - report

The Japanese government has left the option of cancelling the Tokyo Olympic Games in case the coronavirus situation worsens, Kyodo News Agency reported citing a senior ruling party official.

Many are worried the games, which have already been postponed once, will not be safe to hold given that only 0.4% of Japan's population was vaccinated against the virus and that the nation's capital remains the region of Japan worst hit by the virus.

Before the first postponement, the games were originally scheduled for July 24-August 9 2020.
