First case of Covid-19 reported at Tokyo Olympic village


"Tokyo (CNN)An unidentified overseas visitor has tested positive for Covid-19 at the Tokyo Olympics athletes' village, organizers said on Saturday -- the first such case amid concerns the Games could become a super-spreader event.

Speaking at a news conference, Tokyo 2020 CEO Toshiro Muto confirmed a non-resident of Japan who is involved in organizing the Games had tested positive, adding that the individual has been taken into quarantine outside of the village. He would not reveal the person's nationality, citing privacy concerns.
There have now been a total of 45 Covid-19 cases linked to the Games, with athletes, officials and contractors testing positive for the virus. Athletes are just starting to arrive for the Games, which run July 23 through August 8."

All players who will attend the Olympics and all people involved organizing this event should require a 14 days quarantine and a negative Covid test result before going back to their respective Countries.

This is the very easy way of spreading the virus around the world.

One problem is that athletes who have been in close contact with those who have tested positive are being forced to self-isolate.That's not too bad right now,but later it could rule them out of the games.
