Medical specialists confirmed 458 Covid cases during the Tokyo Olympic Games, the organising committee said Monday.
Twenty-eight infections were confirmed in the past 24 hours, while the highest number – 31 – was reported on August 5. The number covers the period from July 1 when preparations for the Olympic Games entered the final stage and athletes began to arrive in Japan.
More than 650,000 Covid tests were conducted during the Olympics and the preparatory stage, with 0.02% of them turning out to be positive.
Due to the worsening Covid-19 situation in Tokyo, a state of emergency was extended until August 31. It includes restrictions on the number of spectators during public events. So, the Tokyo Olympic Games were held from July 23 to August 8 without spectators.
