The president of the Tokyo Olympic organizing committee is once again making it clear, “we will hold the games.”

The Summer Olympics are scheduled for July, after being postponed last summer because of the pandemic.

Yoshiro Mori told Tokyo lawmakers on Tuesday, “No matter what the situation would be with the coronavirus, we will hold the games. We should pass on the discussion of whether we will hold the games or not, but instead discuss how we should hold it.”

Reports have circulated in recent weeks that the Olympics might be canceled.
