Organizers of the Tokyo Olympics announced on Tuesday that the first case of the Volunteer Games for COVID-19 was positive, along with seven other contractors associated with the event. The five sports that have hosted the games in town have tested positive until Monday. The volunteer who returned the positive test is in Iwate prefecture. The number of COVID-related infections has risen to 67, and nine more cases have been added to the official list. The show will open on July 23 and run until August 8.

Game volunteers are directly involved in assisting with events before, during, and after the event.

They play an active role in creating excitement among the fans and helping the athletes manage the logistics.

With seven added to the list on Tuesday, the number of contractors infected with the Games has risen to 36.

On Monday, Czech beach volleyball player Ondrej Perusic became the third athlete in the Olympic Village Village to test positive for COVID-19, and a female female gymnast in Chiba Prefecture was also infected.


It happened after South African footballers Thabiso Monyane and Kamohelo Mahlatsi and video analyst Mario Masha tested positive for the virus on Sunday.

The games will be held behind closed doors amid strict health security protocols, as it is very frightening, to ensure that they are not a very widespread event.
