The International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced on Wednesday that tickets for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics will only be sold to people in mainland China due to the Kovid-1 pandemic epidemic.
This location is different from this year’s Tokyo Olympic Games which was not open to spectators.
According to a Sept 2 press release, details about the specific requirements and ticketing arrangements for spectators at the February event have not been finalized.
But the IOC has said that fully vaccinated athletes must stay in quarantine for 21 days after arriving in Beijing. Fully vaccinated participants can move freely in the games-related area.
The IOC said all domestic and international participants, as well as Games staff, would be tested daily.
Vaccination is not mandatory for the Beijing Games, but some National Olympic Committees, including the United States, require all team members to be vaccinated for the event.
The media, which has little chance of free movement, may be isolated from athletes due to the potential rationale for the Covid-1 counter resistance.
Although Beijing has claimed “safe and successful Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games”, according to the IOC, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman failed to provide specific information at a regular press briefing in March about the promise of complete media freedom for the event.
The Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics are considered controversial because of the Chinese Communist Party’s human rights record, which includes the detention of at least one million Uighurs and other ethnic minorities in the Xinjiang region.
Communist authorities have retreated over allegations of human rights abuses.
International activist groups and human rights activists have called for a boycott of the “genocide games.”
Human rights groups have called on some of the world’s largest broadcasters, including the American network NBC, to cancel plans to cover the sporting event.
