The central government and other organizers of the Tokyo Olympics plan to hold a meeting possibly next week to review the policy of capping the number of spectators at 10,000 per venue, officials close to the matter said Friday, as the capital continues to grapple with a resurgence of coronavirus infections.

With just three weeks remaining until the opening of the games, representatives of the organizers could meet as early as Thursday — the day International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach is due to arrive in Japan — to discuss how best to deal with local fans, if the current quasi-state of emergency in Tokyo and other areas is extended, according to the officials.
