They need meticulous response and different care from the Olympics. "

  Regarding the response of the Paralympic spectators, Muto said that he would consult with the local government, the central government, and the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) where the venue is located to reach a conclusion as soon as possible.

  Regarding the "School Joint Watching Project" for children and students in the venues, Muto said only about the plan to ensure children's chances to watch the competition. It is difficult to make judgments under circumstances."
