The government is considering cutting the number of official Olympic-related travelers to Japan for the games this summer in half to around 30,000 as a countermeasure against the coronavirus pandemic, a source with knowledge of the matter has said.

Approximately 90,000 people are expected to enter the country from abroad, including about 30,000 athletes, coaches and team members. The government would like to cut the number of visitors not directly related to competition in half, the source said Friday.
