Tokyo postpones training for Olympics volunteers over virus fears

Organizers for the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics have postponed training for volunteers given the outbreak of the coronavirus. Training was scheduled to be held starting 21 February but will now be rescheduled. A statement said the postponement of training will not affect other preparations, and organizers are not considering cancelling the games.

How is an arbitrary date for the mass event like the Olympics more important than possibly infecting thousands of attendees who will spread it worldwide? Postpone the games for a year. The worst that can happen: athletes would need to change their training regimen and some businesses/people change their plans. Big deal.

A good first step. Japan really has to step up their containment protocols if they want any hope of not postponing or cancelling the olympics
