Greece’s Olympic committee announced today that Spectators will be kept away from the Olympic flame-lighting ceremony in Ancient Olympia on Thursday because of the coronavirus, as well as the dress rehearsal on Wednesday. This comes as the Greek government restricts access to help prevent the spread of the virus that seems to have the whole world shook at the moment.

The Tokyo organizing committee also said they will attempt to restrict or reduce the size of traveling delegation attending the ceremony in Greece as well, as the flame begins it's journey to Japan.
