With gyms and races closed, many people are running together in virtual training groups. A sports cardiologist said anyone running with others should double the recommended six feet of social distancing because of the increase in the amount of air they’re breathing in and out.
Numerous sporting events planned for 2021 will be moved to make room for the Olympics.
The Closing Ceremony will take place on August 8th. This year's Olympics were due to begin on July 24 and run to August 9.
Former Japanese prime minister Yukio Hatoyma: "In order to make an impression that the city was taking control of the coronavirus, Tokyo avoided making strict requests and made the number of patients look smaller. The coronavirus has spread while they waited. (For Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike) it was Olympics first, not Tokyo’s residents.”
