Japan to decide on fans attending Olympics soon - official

Japan will make a final decision on whether domestic fans will be allowed to attend the events at the 2020 Summer Olympics this month, the country's Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato said on Wednesday.

Kato added the call will depend on various factors related to COVID-19, mostly on the presence of the new variants at that moment.

Earlier this month, Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee President Seiko Hashimoto stated the Games might not happen if authorities from Japan and other countries do not allow athletes to travel.
