There will be no spectators in the Tokyo venues for the Summer Olympics.

Earlier today, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshide Suga confirmed the pandemic-delayed Tokyo 2020 Olympics will be under a coronavirus emergency situation.

The announcement was made after a meeting of the five Olympic and Japanese government groups responsible for the Games.

“A very heavy decision was taken,” said Seiko Hashimoto with the Japanese Olympic Committee.

Hashimoto said that because of the pandemic, he has “no choice but to organize the Games in a limited way.”
