In his first interview since the coronavirus outbreak began in December, the Australian team’s medical director, David Hughes, said human-to-human transmission of the flu-like disease in Japan was a “far from ideal” situation.
“What is going on in Japan now is a key issue,” said Dr Hughes, who is also the chief medical officer at the Australian Institute of Sport. “The next couple of weeks is going to be the real test in seeing whether this local transmission can be brought under control.
“It’s a far from ideal situation when we are preparing for an Olympics. All I can say is we certainly would prefer that there wasn’t local transmission occurring in Japan.”
Dr Hughes said any change to current plans for the Olympics would be up to the International Olympic Committee.
“We will not have a vaccine for coronavirus before the Olympics,” he told The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age. “We would need to be sure that it is safe to take athletes into Japan.”
