TOKYO – Two athletes were among the four Olympic Village residents who joined the count of people accredited for the Tokyo Games who tested positive for COVID-19 this month on Thursday, bringing the number to 91.

Skater Candy Jacobs from the Netherlands and table tennis player Pavel Sirucek from the Czech Republic tested positive and had to leave town for a quarantine hotel in the cases announced Wednesday.

In the total of 91 cases listed by the organizers since July 1, two “staff members concerned about the Games” were included, a category that includes coaches and team officials, who stayed in town with a view to Tokyo Bay.

That number does not include athletes who tested positive at home before their scheduled trip to Tokyo for events that will now be missed.
