Tokyo Olympic organizers have been insistent the 2020 Games will be staged this summer, despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and media reports that suggest otherwise.

On Wednesday, officials offered one of the first concrete road maps of how they plan to pull it off, with the release of the first in a series of Tokyo Olympic playbooks meant to outline measures against COVID-19.

"They provide the framework for the basic principle that each stakeholder will follow before they travel to Japan, when entering Japan, during their time at the games and leaving the games," Olympic Games Executive Director Christophe Dubi said.
