A senior member of Japan’s governing party on Thursday said that canceling the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, due to begin in 99 days, was still an option if the Covid-19 situation continued to worsen.

Toshiro Nikai, the secretary-general of Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga’s Liberal Democratic Party, made the comments in an interview with Japanese channel TBS, excerpts of which were published in local media in advance.  EFE
