Coronavirus could lead to Tokyo Olympics 2020 being canceled: IOC’s Dick Pound

Dick Pound, the longest-serving member of the IOC, says that the Tokyo Olympics scheduled for this year could get cancelled due to coronavirus outbreak. Pound said that there is a three-month window for the organizers to decide the fate of the mega sporting event, which is scheduled to open on July 24, and ruled out the possibility of changing its venue.

They don't have to cancel it. Why not postpone it till the next year when we'll have a better grip on the disease.
