Chinanews client, Beijing, June 18, according to Kyodo News, Japanese government’s new crown infectious disease countermeasures group chairman Shigeru Omino and other experts submitted suggestions to the Japanese government and the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee on the 18th on the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. Said, "It is an ideal way to hold empty venues to minimize the risk of infection expansion in the competition venues."

  Experts said that regardless of scale or attention, the Olympic Games far surpassed ordinary sports events. “There is a risk that people from all over the country will go out because of the Olympic Games, which will lead to the expansion of the epidemic and the risk of medical emergency.”

  The suggestion pointed out that if the audience is to be accepted, a stricter limit than the upper limit of the number of people for other large-scale events needs to be adopted.

Even if spectators are admitted, they should be limited to those who live in the venue and can take adequate measures to prevent the epidemic, and stop holding public spectators and other gatherings for cheering activities.

Once there are signs of an expanding epidemic and medical emergencies, countermeasures including a declaration of emergency should be taken immediately.

For 10,000 people.

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga stated that "the upper limit of the number of people in the Olympics will be basically determined according to this rule."
