Two athletes tested positive for the coronavirus, setting the precedent among athletes in the Olympic Village in Tokyo, less than a week before the start of the Olympic Games, Japan’s Kyodo News Agency reported Sunday, citing officials.

Kyodo said that a day after the first non-athlete was infected with the Corona virus inside the Olympic Village, the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee confirmed two infections among the athletes for the first time.

The agency quoted the committee as saying that 10 participants in the Olympics from outside the country, including two athletes inside the village and another athlete not residing in the facility, came as a result of their infection with a positive corona.

The Olympic Committee said on Saturday that the first case of corona was confirmed inside the Olympic Village, without providing any information about the identity or nationality of the injured
