00:58

The president of Japan’s Olympic committee says she is “100 percent” certain the Games will go forward this summer, but says there is still a possibility spectators will be banned. Meantime, about 10,000 of the 80,000 volunteers have dropped out due to COVID-19 concerns. (NBC Universal, parent company of NBC News, owns the media rights to the upcoming Games.)
