Top Japanese doctor says Olympics ‘will be difficult’ without vaccine | VOA News

Yoshitake Yokokura, head of the Japan Medical Association, believes that Japan should no longer host the rescheduled Olympics. “Unless an effective vaccine is developed, I expect hosting the Olympics will be difficult,ā€ he commented. The coronavirus pandemic forced the event organizers to cancel normal July competitions and has postponed it for next year. While numerous countries and companies are working to develop and manufacture a vaccine, due to necessary trials we may not see one for over a year. Ahmed Al-Mandhari, director of the World Health Organizationā€™s Eastern Mediterranean Office, has stated that there is no better time for the world to come together and for nations to collaborate on a vaccine or cure.
