One of the biggest sporting events in the World which we call the “Olympics” is all set to start from July 23rd, 2021 where players from all over the world are ready to spread their magic on the biggest international forum.
This year’s Olympics is a bit different than all the Olympics which have been held before considering the current situation we all are in at the moment and the terms like Quarantine, Isolation, and Vaccination is what we are hearing from last 1 year.
It will be the biggest challenge on the Japanese Government and Tokyo Olympics organizers to conduct the marquee event behind closed doors following all the safety and security protocols to a great extent.
Recently we have come across a report which states that two workers residing in Olympics village has been tested positive for COVID-19 is an alarming thing for 11,000 athletes who will be staying in the same village in few weeks time and not to forget Japan has already started witnessing a surge in COVID cases.
The country will be already in a Virus state of emergence from July 12th, 2021 onwards till August 22nd, 2021 to make sure that all the health protocols are followed effectively and efficiently.
As per the latest developments, foreign fans have already been restricted to witness the upcoming mega event and it is assumed that local fans entry will also be prohibited.
The athletes will not just be bothered about their individual performance but will be worried a little bit that if they get exposed to the virus once there is no chance for them to make comeback in the tournament as the Olympics is a fast and short paced tournament.
Just in case you are not aware of the latest rule of playbook decided by Tokyo Organizers which stated that in case any player gets tested positive they will be tested once again to cross-check whether the first result was correct or not and in case both tests came positive then that player is straight away gets disqualified from the tournament.
