The 2020 Olympics may be in jeopardy yet again.

According to TMZ Sports, the Olympics could be in danger after a spike in COVID-19 cases in Tokyo which has led to a state of emergency.

Because of the recent surge, IOC president Thomas Bach canceled his trip to the country.

The Olympics were originally scheduled for last summer before the coronavirus pandemic caused the world to come to a screeching halt.

From the report:

Health officials in Japan are concerned the current 4th wave of the infection contains a variant that is spreading very fast and impacting a relatively large number of young people.

Officials say hospitals are overwhelmed and the health care system throughout the country is being pushed to the brink.

The Summer Games are currently scheduled to begin on July 23 with the opening ceremony and will run through August 8.

The Paralympics are expected to take place from August 24 through September 5.
