Japan is dismissing reports that the Tokyo Olympics are being canceled. Multiple reports yesterday said Japanese government officials have concluded the 2021 Games this summer would have to be canceled due to the pandemic. Today, a government spokesman said there was no truth to the reports. Teams from the U.S., Australia and Canada say they are still preparing for the games. Japan’s Prime Minister says he’s “determined” to hold the Tokyo Olympics “as proof that mankind will have overcome the virus”. The games are scheduled for July 23rd.
