Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games: Team Ghana member tests positive for Covid in Inashiwaro training camp

A staff member of Ghana’s Paralympic delegation was confirmed infected with the novel coronavirus and may have been in close contact with the nine others on the team, the town government here said.

The town, which is hosting the Ghanaian team, said Aug. 9 that the visitors entered Japan on the evening of Aug. 8 at Narita Airport. The staff member in his 30s tested positive for the virus at the airport’s quarantine station.

The remaining nine members have entered Inawashiro, their preliminary training site for the Tokyo Paralympics, but they were isolated in their hotel here as a precaution.

The team is scheduled to stay in the town until Aug. 22 and train at the local gymnasium. The town government will decide whether the nine can leave the hotel for training.

“We were prepared for the possibility that some members could test positive, so we will support them fully,” Hiroshi Zengo, the town mayor, said.
