About 10,000 volunteers refused to work at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo
The main reason for the refusal was people's concern about COVID-19. The number of volunteers has dropped to 70,000, but this should not greatly affect the Olympics.
The first thousand volunteers refused to participate in late February. According to the agency, this was provoked by sexist statements of the former president of the organizing committee Yoshiro Mori.
The Olympic Games in Tokyo will be held from July 23 to August 8. Initially, they were supposed to take place last year, but due to the coronavirus, the competition was postponed.
In Japan, mass vaccinations are being started in the workplace and at universities to vaccinate as many people as possible before the Tokyo Olympics
Moderna will be used for vaccination.
Japan's Secretary-General Katsunobu Kato said the date could be adjusted if the government believes vaccination of people over 65 can be completed by the end of July.
He also said that companies and universities will decide for themselves who to vaccinate. Authorities recommended that priority be given to the elderly and people with comorbidities. Family members of the staff of these facilities may also be eligible for the vaccine.

'I applaud her' - Hamilton hails Osaka over French Open pull-out - News24
Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton hailed Naomi Osaka's "bravery" for pulling out of the French Open.
Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton hailed Naomi Osaka's "bravery" for pulling out of the French Open following her media engagement stand-off and criticised the way Roland Garros handled the issue. The 23-year-old four-time Grand Slam winner quit the tournament on Monday after being fined and threatened with disqualification for refusing to honour mandatory media commitments, claiming they were detrimental to her mental health. Hamilton sympathised with Osaka, drawing comparisons with how he felt as a raw rookie starting out on his motor racing career. "The fact is that when you are young, you are thrown into the spotlight and it weighs heavily on you and most of us aren't prepared," the Mercedes driver said on Thursday. "When I got into F1, the team had PR (but) I was never prepared to be thrown in front of a camera, never guided as to what to look out for, helped to navigate through that. "You kind of learn through mistakes and it's incredibly nerve-racking, especially when you have all good intentions but people take advantage of it." Speaking in Baku ahead of this weekend's Azerbaijan Grand Prix Hamilton added: "I think she is incredible and I applaud her for her bravery because I think it's now asking those in power to... think about how they reacted, because I think the way they reacted wasn't good. "Someone talking about their personal mental health and then being fined for it, that was not cool. "I think they could have definitely handled it better and I hope they will take a deep dive into it and find a better way to navigate in the future." He said as athletes "we are pushing ourselves to the limit, we are on the edge and we are human beings". He said the Osakas of the sporting world needed support. "Naomi didn't feel comfortable for her own personal health to do something and the backlash is ridiculous. "People are not taking into account that she is a human being and she is saying I am not well enough to do this right now. "I think that needs to be really looked into and how people react to that, rather than being supportive and uplifting to her."
