“The executive committee has not discussed the impact of the outbreak on the Olympics, but staff are studying the conflict between the Reschedule of the Games and other sporting events in preparation for the next executive committee meeting at the end of March,” Takahashi said in an interview. “

“The economic cost of canceling the Olympic Games or hosting the Games without spectators is undoubtedly significant. Postponing the Olympics for less than a year can also be problematic because it can overlap with time at important sporting events, such as football in Europe, baseball in the United States and football. It’s better to postpone it by two years, as the schedule for next year’s sporting events is almost certain. “
