The International Olympic Committee's IOC plans to get the Corona 19 vaccine to all athletes participating in the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympic Games scheduled for July this year, according to the British newspaper Telegraph.

This is one of the IOC's countermeasures amid the call for cancellation of the Tokyo Olympics as the global pandemic of Corona 19 continues and the outbreak in Japan worsens.

Telegraph explained that the IOC is seeing the speedy vaccination of athletes in Japan, where national corona19 vaccination has not yet started, as a priority.

To this end, the IOC is reported to be working closely with the'COVAX facility' and the World Health Organization (WHO), an international project for joint purchase and distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine.
