A growing number of government officials and Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics organizers are leaning toward allowing a certain number of domestic spectators at this summer's games if thorough anti-coronavirus measures are taken, sources close to the matter said.

Two months remain before the opening of the Olympics on July 23 and there are mounting calls from the public for the games to be canceled or postponed due to skepticism about organizers' ability to contain the spread of the virus.

The capital has been under a state of emergency since late April amid a fourth wave of infections.
