If the fever rises in Japan with the approach of the Olympic Games in Tokyo, it is not because of the craze that would have seized the Japanese. Already postponed one year because of Covid-19, the Olympics, rescheduled from July 23rd to August 8th, 2021, remain contested by many people and organizations. Latest example: a union of hospital doctors.
“We strongly oppose holding the Tokyo Games at a time when people around the world are fighting the new coronavirus,” the doctors say in a message to the government.
The risk of cancellation or postponement is very high.
