The Tokyo Olympic Games were scheduled to be held in July August this year but were postponed until next year due to the coronavirus. Now it will be held from 23 July to 8 August next year.
For the last few months, experts are worried about whether these games can be conducted without vaccine.
However, Bak has already said that he does not think any country will withdraw from the Olympics due to the Corona epidemic.
