To Cancel or Not?: IOC, Japan Press Ahead With Tokyo Games
TOKYO (AP) — Opposition to the Tokyo Olympics is growing with calls for a cancellation as virus cases rise in Japan. The International Olympic Committee and local organizers have already said another postponement is impossible. That leaves leaving cancellation or going ahead as the only options. Two polls published in the last few days by the Japanese news agency Kyodo and Japanese broadcaster TBS show that just over 80% want the Olympics canceled or postponed or believe they will not take place. The negative responses are up 15 to 20 percentage points from polls published just last month.
