China News Service, October 4th. According to Kyodo News Agency of Japan, according to several relevant sources,
At the countermeasure coordination meeting held on the 9th by the Japanese government, the Olympic Organizing Committee and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, it is expected that discussions will be conducted in conjunction with the epidemic prevention countermeasures at the stadium. It is intended to reduce the risk of infection and provide athletes with a safe living environment. In the future, such measures will be discussed with the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
The Olympic Village in Harumi, Chuo-ku, Tokyo consists of 21 residential buildings with 14 to 18 floors and related facilities. During the competition, it will become a life base for up to 10,000 athletes and coaches, and the implementation of epidemic prevention measures will be a challenge.
It was originally planned to set up a main restaurant with about 4,500 seats during the Olympics, considering reducing the number of seats and installing acrylic panels to prevent droplet infection. Public parts such as the fitness center and the "Village Plaza" (Olympic Village Plaza), which will be a communication hub for athletes, will also adjust the utilization plan to avoid congestion.
The life in the room is the same as that of previous Olympics, but it is considered that the stay time should be shortened. There is also a proposal to improve the mechanism of collecting daily physical condition information of athletes, etc., in order to detect abnormalities as soon as possible.
In addition, it is envisaged that athletes will also be tested when they enter the pre-training area or when they move into the Olympic Village, in addition to departing for and entering Japan. In order to maintain a “safe and secure” environment in the Olympic Village, in addition to competition venues and training venues, consideration is given to restricting going out. Such rules apply to foreign athletes and Japanese athletes who are usually isolated for 14 days after entering the country. Regarding the violation of the regulations, consultations will be advanced with the IOC and various international individual sports federations.
In terms of anti-epidemic measures in the stadium, specific plans such as "zoning" (zoning) that distinguish between athletes and related personnel who do not touch athletes will be discussed. (Finish)
