Tokyo Olympics Ban Spectators Due To State of Emergency

The 2021 Tokyo Olympics have banned live spectators.

Today, following the decision by the Government of Japan (GoJ) to announce a state of emergency in Tokyo, the five parties, namely the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) and the GoJ came together for a meeting.

The final decision was to ban live spectators for good at the upcoming Olympics. 

Those games have already been delayed from 2020, of course, though the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), and the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee had already been criticized for its rescheduling.
