Olympic media will be closely monitored during Games, Tokyo 2020 official says
Media covering the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will be closely monitored, Tokyo 2020 President Hashimoto said on Tuesday.
Hashimoto said this was to ensure they do not leave pre-registered areas.
She listed such areas as hotels and sports venues.
Hashimoto spoke of clarifying COVID-19 counter-measures relating to media covering the Games in opening remarks ahead of a Tokyo 2020 executive board meeting.
With Japan still struggling to contain a fourth wave of the coronavirus pandemic, the Summer Games had seen opposition from the public.
This had been over concerns that the sports event could lead to more infections and overload medical facilities.
The 2020 Olympics will hold from July 24 to Aug. 8 in Tokyo.
