No spectators

There will be no spectators during the opening ceremony in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus infections. About 950 people, including officials and journalists, will watch in the main stadium, organizers said.

Fewer athletes are expected to attend the ceremony because many are not allowed to stay for the entire Games due to COVID-19 restrictions.
