Japan tightens Covid rules for Indian Olympics contingent; IOA calls it 'unfair and discriminatory'

Tokyo Olympics has received stern criticism from the Indian Olympics Association. Japanese government has asked members of the Indian contingent to undergo daily Covid-19 tests for a week prior to their departure and not interact with anyone from another country for three days on arrival.

Stricter restrictions have been imposed on all athletes, coach and support staff from 11 countries, including India, where more infectious variants of the virus have been identified. These restrictions will have to be followed for 14 days to the contingents' arrival in Tokyo.

India has been clubbed with Afghanistan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka in group 1.
