In January 2020, concerns were raised about the potential impact on athletes and visitors to the Olympic Games as the covid had a worldwide spread with a great potential to affect everyone. Tokyo organizers insisted and ensured that they were monitoring the spread of the disease to minimize its effects on preparations for the Olympics. The IOC stated that in 2020, their Japanese partners and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe “made it very clear that Japan could not manage a postponement beyond next summer in 2021 at the latest. Unlike the new emergence of the case for the Zika virus during the 2016 Summer Olympics, in Rio de Janeiro, SARS-CoV-2 can be transmitted directly between humans, posing tougher challenges and unwanted situations for the organizers to counteract the infectious disease and host a safe and secure event. Also, unlike in Vancouver, COVID-19 has a higher fatality rate, and there was no until December 2020, which could manage a stoppage and spread.

The COVID-19 pandemic severely restricted mandatory doping tests in early 2020 due to its widespread and dangerous variants. European anti-doping organizations raised concerns that blood and urine tests could not be performed and that mobilizing the staff necessary to do so before the end of the pandemic would be a health risk. Despite the need for extensive testing to take place in advance of the Games, the (WADA) stated that public health and safety were their topmost priorities. The Chinese anti-doping agency temporarily ceased testing on 3 February, 3 February 2020, with a planned resumption of phased testing towards the end of the month. The anti-doping organizations in the United States, France, Great Britain, and Germany had reduced their testing activities by the end of March.

Aiming to collect eight tonnes of metals to produce the medals for the Olympic and Paralympic Games, collection boxes were deployed at public locations and NTT Docomo retail shops, and every other possible center in April 2017. A design competition for the medals was launched in December of that year. 

In May 2018, the organizing committee reported that they had obtained half the required 2,700 kilograms of bronze but struggled to obtain the required amount of silver; However, bronze and silver medals utilize their respective materials; IOC requirements mandate that gold medals utilize silver as a base. The collection of bronze was completed in November 2018, with the remainder estimated to have been completed by March 2019.
