Will there be an audience entry in the Olympics? IOC officials expressed hope

Tokyo. An International Olympic Committee (IOC) official overseeing preparations for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics expressed hope that fans from around the world will be allowed to visit China in private to watch the next Olympics. Local and foreign spectators will not be allowed into stadiums to watch the events during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, starting with the opening ceremony on Friday, missing the celebratory atmosphere normally created in the host city of the Games. Instead, the people of Japan and health experts fear that the Olympic Games may not increase the cases of infection in Japan.

Chinese officials, which are organizing the Winter Games, said the health and safety of all those participating in the Games were their biggest concern. Campaigning groups are trying to promote the 2022 Beijing Winter Games as a "game of genocide" in the face of allegations of human rights abuses against minorities in China.
