Bengali Hunt Desk: Corona has started a new infection in the world. The situation is getting worse day by day. If the situation does not improve, the Tokyo Olympics could be canceled this year, said Tashihiro Nikai, secretary of Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party.
In the days of Prime Minister Ishiiid Suga, Nikai was the de facto leader of the government. “If it’s not possible to organize it, then we have to decide to stop,” he said on a television program. He added, “If the Olympics are likely to increase the risk of infection, then what is the purpose of the Olympics?” As many as 1,100 people were infected in Osaka on Wednesday. Nikai made such a comment after that.
The Olympics have already been delayed by a year due to Corona. This year has been set for the tournament that was supposed to be held in 2020. The tournament is scheduled to be held from July 23 to August 7, 2021. The Olympic setback is unprecedented. Earlier, the Olympics were canceled in 1918, 1940 and 1944 due to World War II. But it was never postponed.
Earlier in the year, Yoshiro Mori, president of the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee, said that no matter what the situation in Corona, the Olympics would be held in Japan. In such a situation, the International Olympic Committee is working to organize the Olympics properly.
