As the start of the Games nears, fears are growing as positive cases keep emerging. But a health adviser for the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on COVID-19 countermeasures insisted on Monday that the Olympic Village is safe.

Brian McCloskey, chair of an independent expert panel advising the IOC on COVID-19 countermeasures, told a press conference that individual infections are expected as related people go through different layers of filtering. However, he said that with all the countermeasures in place, particularly robust testing measures and quick response, infections would not pose risks to others.

According to the Games organizers, 58 positive cases related to the Games, including four athletes, have been reported as of Monday since July 1.
