Report: The Tokyo Olympics will go on in 2021 “with or without COVID-19”

One of the many losses the COVID-19 outbreak has brought to 2020 is the Tokyo Olympics, which has been postponed to July 23, 2021. While it is way to early to speculate on whether anything so far away will still take place, the Olympics is the largest sports gathering in the world and brings more people together from more places than any other event.

As of now, Olympic officials have zero plans to change or cancel the event again regardless of anything. Per the Kyodo News, International Olympic Committee and head of the IOC’s coordination commission, Vice President John Coates recently stated that the games “will take place with or without COVID” as planned next summer.
