These kind of stories where athletes who are tested and often return positive results suggests the number of Covid cases among the general (untested) population are far higher than the official figures suggest.

But this doesn't explain why the numbers of those who have died in Japan from Covid are also relatively low. Can these figures also be under reported? Each country has a different way of measuring it seems.

Guess that this event will not be classified as a " test event for the Olympics" then. convenient.

Luckily for them speed skating is a Winter sport. I am sure we will not hear about any positive tests in a test event. Only how the event gave athletes the joy.
