Japanese Olympic official says Games will go forward


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.)
