Two employees of the Tokyo Olympic organizing committee have tested positive for COVID-19, officials said Saturday.

That brings to three the number of employees of the committee who have tested positive since the pandemic began.

Organizers said a man and a woman had tested positive but gave few details. They said the man was in his 20s and the woman in her 30s, and that both were now working from home rather than at the headquarters located near Tokyo Bay. Many of the organizing committee's employees have been working remotely though some have returned to office work in the last few months.The 2020 Tokyo Olympics have been put back to July 23, 2021 due to the pandemic. The original closing ceremony was to have been Sunday, Aug. 9.

Japan has reported just over 1,000 deaths from COVID-19. Like the country, Tokyo has been largely spared, though new cases have been rising for the last few weeks with officials urging people not to travel and to stay away from bars and restaurants.

How is this news

They have boat-buses? Cool....


NBC Universal paid the IOC $793 million for U.S. broadcast rights, the most paid by any country. IOC will make Olympic happen and won’t give a f to the pandemic. They want money, not your health.

Lol. Who gives a fuck?

That's it, cancel the Olympics!

So fucking what?

Lol, whats with that Bus? 🙄😳🤣

Ill wzit for CTV
