Israel intends to have all its athletes due to compete at the Tokyo Olympics vaccinated against COVID-19 by May, its National Olympic Committee said on Wednesday.

“As part of the Israel vaccination for corona procedure already 50% of all the Israel Olympic athletes delegation to Tokyo have been vaccinated,” a Committee spokeswoman told Reuters in an email.

Despite doubts, host Japan and the International Olympics Committee have stood firm on Friday on their commitment to host the Tokyo Olympics this year.
