Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Tokyo Olympics Head Says Athletes Not Affected by U.S. Travel Advisory” – below is their description.

The U.S. said Americans should avoid traveling to Japan, with much of the country under a state of emergency over a Covid-19 outbreak that has sown doubts about Tokyo’s plans to host the Olympics in less than two months.

The State Department raised its travel advisory to level four on Monday, putting Japan in a category with a broad swath of nations from Latin America to Europe that Americans are urged to avoid due to coronavirus concerns.

The action — which comes despite far lower infection rates in Japan than the U.S. — is a fresh blow to a country struggling to convince its own public and the international community that it’s ready to host the Summer Olympics beginning on July 23, following their delay in 2020.
