Strong commitment from NOCs to safe & secure Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: IOC

Six National Olympic Committees (NOCs) have pledged to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and Tokyo 2020 that their delegations will arrive in Japan for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 fully vaccinated. These pledges came from the NOCs of Bangladesh, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka all of which are currently on the list of countries and regions subject to the strongest entry restrictions for Japan, IOC said in its recent news release.

“All of these NOCs have also confirmed to the IOC and Tokyo 2020 that they will conduct additional testing of their delegation members prior to departure, over and above the requirements of the Playbooks. This commitment is very warmly welcomed by the IOC, as it represents yet another commitment and a strong signal from stakeholders within the Olympic community that everyone is doing their utmost to ensure the Games will be safe for everyone participating and for the Japanese people.

“From the outset, the IOC has been working hand-in-hand with NOCs to encourage and assist their athletes, officials and stakeholders to get vaccinated in their home countries, in line with national immunisation guidelines, before heading to Japan.

“Last week, IOC President Thomas Bach confirmed that as many as 75 per cent of the residents of the Olympic Village are already vaccinated or have secured vaccination; and that there is good reason to believe that this figure will be well over 80 per cent at the time of the Games.”
