TOKIO 2020

Olymp. Fälle von Covid-19 übersteigen 150

By Ninian Carter

July 26, 2021 - Tokios Olymp. Organisatoren meldeten sechzehn weitere Coronavirus Fälle, davon drei unter Athleten, insgesamt 153 Fälle.

The much maligned Tokyo 2020 Olympics were struck by sixteen new coronavirus cases on Monday, including three infections among athletes, despite the spectatorless Tokyo Games operating under tight restrictions.

Those testing positive on July 26 include athletes, Olympic personnel, media workers, contractors, employees and volunteers. Total Olympic infections now stand at 153 – up 147% on a total 62 of cases reported last Monday (July 19).

Overall, however, total Covid-19 cases linked to the event are relatively small as a percentage of the number of attendees, with only 0.02% of tests in the three days to Sunday, July 25, returning a positive result.
