Organizers of the Tokyo Olympics said 71 people tested positive. The total includes 31 people among the tens of thousands of international visitors expected in Japan to compete or work in the Games, which begin on Friday.
Positive tests for American gymnastics substitute Kara Eaker and Czech team member Ondřej PeruSič were announced on Monday. Eaker was at a training camp in Chiba prefecture and PeruSič stayed at the Olympic Village in Tokyo Bay.
Both went into 14-day quarantine, organizers said. That period includes PeruSič’s three scheduled games with teammate David Schweiner.
One new case among the 13 added to the official total on Tuesday includes a “game-conscious staff,” a category that includes team officials and sports staff, in Tokyo who do not stay in the village.
Other recently reported cases scattered across Japan include Gaming contractors and a volunteer.
