The President of Toyo 2020, Yoshiro Mori, announced on the 29th of April that the Olympic and Paralympic Games could be cancelled if they are not held in 2021.
Previously, the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics were both cancelled due to the COVID-19. Many are still concerned that it will still be a concern next year. It seems like the IOC and the Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee will continue to monitor the situation.
The President of the Japan Medical Association, Yoshitake Yokokura, claimed that the Olympics should be cancelled if there is no vaccine against the disease.
The cancellation of Tokyo 2020 has been estimated to cost nearly $3 billion dollars.
