Toshiro Muto said at a news conference he is watching the infection numbers, with 71 coronavirus cases already reported since July 1 of people accredited to participate in the Games or be there in some capacity.
"We will continue discussions if there is a spike in cases," Muto said. “At this point, the coronavirus cases may rise or fall, so we will think about what we should do when the situation arises."
