Tokyo 2020: Athletes to undergo COVID-19 tests on arrival

Joe Apu with agency report

Ahead of the now postponed Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, organisers have ruled that all foreign athletes will require coronavirus tests upon their arrival in Japan, but may not mandate a two-week quarantine period, according to draft measures released yesterday.

According to reuters.com, the decision was reached after a meeting between the Tokyo 2020 organising committee, the Japanese government and the Tokyo metropolitan authorities.

Similarly, Japanese athletes and other participants living in Japan would face similar requirements when travelling to training camps and competition venues under the planned measures which were released yesterday.

The pandemic, which has infected millions worldwide, has cast a shadow over the viability of next year’s Games, even as Japan’s new Prime Minister, Yoshihide Suga, has emphasised their importance.

Suga also spoke to International Olympic Committee President, Thomas Bach, by phone and had a discussion about holding a successful Games. Suga promised to cooperate closely on holding a safe event for athletes and spectators, his office said.

In the draft plan, Tokyo organisers also proposed to limit travel within Japan for athletes, who would register all domestic travel routes and would be transported to towns hosting national delegations and training sites in dedicated vehicles.

Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi has been ruled out of Nigeria’s friendlies against Cote d’Ivoire and Tunisia after suffering a groin injury in the Foxes’ 4-2 victory over Burnley.

Ndidi was among the 25-man squad to prepare Nigeria for their 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone in November.

The 23-year-old played the full 90 minutes on Sunday evening as Brendan Rodgers’ men silenced the Clarets at the King Power Stadium, but he will not be part of the international game billed to take place in Austria.

Super Eagles media officer, Toyin Ibitoye, confirmed the development. “Of course, Ndidi is injured and has been ruled out of the games against Tunisia and Cote d’Ivoire,” Ibitoye told Goal.

Meanwhile, coach Gernot Rohr is expected to name a replacement for the injured midfield trojan.

This is the first time Ndidi has suffered from a groin injury and the news will be particularly worrying for Leicester, with the youngster starting the season on a solid note.

By Emmanuel Elebeke The Federal government on Monday inaugurated a Ministerial Committee on Covid-19 herbal remedies and natural compounds in a bid to find a home-grown solution for Covid-19. ADVERTISING Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu while inaugurating the committee, stated that the Committee became imperative because Covid-19 remains a threat to the health and well-being of Nigerians and the national economy and reiterated an urgent need to develop a home-grown remedy and vaccine to tackle it. Dr. Onu said the Committee, made up of eminent scientists and fellows of the Nigerian Academy of Science is to authenticate claims by researchers, scientists, and traditional medical practitioners of cure and herbal remedy for Covid-19.

Said he: “I have no doubt that the discovery of a cure for Covid-19 in Nigeria would enhance the standing of our dear nation in the comity of nations”. “It will also accord Nigerian scientists deserved recognition and help regenerate foreign exchange earnings for the nation as well as enable a knowledge economy that will facilitate economic growth and sustainable national development”, he added. Dr. Onu further said that the quest for a home-grown remedy for Covid-19 by the Ministry is in tandem with President Muhammadu Buhari’s desire to diversify the economy. Dr. Onu also said that the Ministry is tirelessly working with all relevant stakeholders, particularly the Federal Ministry of Health, to find a solution to Covid-19. He added that Nigeria with 172 other countries has been making frantic efforts for enhanced access to Covid-19 vaccines by participating in COVAX, a global initiative to provide worldwide access to safe and effective vaccines. Dr. Onu added that COVAX currently has the world’s largest and most diverse Covid-19 vaccine portfolio, including nine candidate vaccines; seven of which are currently in clinical trials, with a further nine under evaluation and conversations underway with major producers.
