Olympic organizers say they are dealing with Complaints about isolation conditions for athletes who test positive for coronavirus and work to ensure they have clean rooms, better food, and access to training equipment.
“These are exactly the things we have to deal with. It is a task. It is a responsibility. We have to make sure that expectations are met,” said Christophe Dubi, executive director of the International Olympic Committee for the Games.
The comments came after repeated complaints about the isolation conditions. The German team called the situation for their athletes “unreasonable” and said the rooms should be bigger and cleaner.
Russian pentathlon Valeria Vasnetsova said she couldn’t stomach most of the food she was given, and barely survived on a few pieces of pasta. Shortly after the post, a spokesman for the group posted a photo showing what he said were the improved foods, including salmon, cucumbers, sausages and yogurt.
A total of 363 people inside the Olympic bubble have tested positive for COVID.
