When the virus will no longer be a threat is still very much unknown, and considering how prevalent it's been over the last few months, it's looking unlikely to go away anytime soon. But the International Olympic Committee (IOC) have stated that it refuses to delay the Olympic games past the summer of 2021, so it looks like Tokyo has no choice but to push ahead. And the nation's not happy about it.
