10,000 unpaid volunteers drop out of Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics
About 10,000 of 80,000 unpaid volunteers for the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics have told organisers they will not participate when the Games begin from July 23. Organisers said some dropped out because of worries about COVID-19. "We have not confirmed the individual reasons," they added. Organisers further said the loss would not affect the operations of the postponed Olympics.
