2020 Olympics to Go On as Planned in Tokyo Despite Coronavirus

It looks like the 2020 Summer Olympics will still go on as planned despite previous reports that it could be postponed.

The event – set to take place from July 24 to August 9 in Tokyo, Japan – was possibly going to be postponed or even canceled due to Coronavirus concerns.

“The Games are going ahead on the 24th of July and we completely expect to deliver them on that date,” the International Olympic Committee’s Mark Adams said during a press briefing on Tuesday (March 3), TMZ reports. “All the advice we’ve been given is that that can go ahead, from the WHO and other organizations.”

Over 90,000 people have reportedly been diagnosed with Coronavirus in 71 countries, and there have been over 3,000 deaths.

Meanwhile, it was just announced that Gucci has canceled its upcoming fashion show over Coronavirus fears. (Make sure you’re washing your hands properly!)
