Hours to official opening of Tokyo Olympics, more COVID-19 cases recorded
A day before the Tokyo Olympics officially opens, organisers have reported 12 COVID-19 cases linked to the event.
In their Thursday update, the organising committee said two athletes staying in the Olympic Village were among those who tested positive.
Neither are, however, Japanese.
Organisers said two more people from the Olympic Village are affected, but they are not athletes.
All four must now go into quarantine.
The latest numbers bring the total of positive tests since July 1 to 87.
