Tokyo 2020 in danger following coronavirus
Following the recent outbreak of coronavirus, which has spread more than 30 countries already, sporting events were rescheduled. For instance, in Italy, several top-flight matches were postponed over the fears of coronavirus. China has rescheduled its plans for competitions as well.
Tokyo Olympics will be held this year from July to August. It is still a long time until the competition starts, though there is a probability coronavirus will disrupt the largest sporting event in the world.
