Olympic Games: Foreign volunteers to be barred from taking part in Tokyo Olympic Games

Volunteers from abroad will not be allowed into Japan for the postponed Tokyo Olympics, organizers said on Monday. The announcement comes just two days after Tokyo organisers said they would ban international fans from coming into Japan. Both measures are aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19. Organisers said a limited number of volunteers might be allowed if they have special skills. Tokyo 2020 had planned to use about 80,000 unpaid volunteers while the Tokyo Metropolitan Government had lined up o30,000 more with most from Japan. It's not clear how many will be needed with few overseas fans in attendance.
