The Editor in Chief of Australia’s Medical Journal has raised serious concerns of the Tokyo Olympics going ahead.

Japan has extended a state of emergency in Tokyo and three other areas until the end of May as the country struggles to contain a surge in COVID-19 cases.

Speaking with Oliver Peterson, Dr Nick Talley said insufficient quarantining, testing and vaccinations are just the start of a multitude of problems.

“The risk of the indoor events and the risk in the Olympic village – the risk there is high for super spreader events.

“It’s really a concern.”
