South Korean athletes will have their food service at the Tokyo Olympics due to fears of contamination, Yonhap media outlet said on Tuesday.
The report said the South Korean Olympic Committee (KSOC) has set up a makeshift kitchen in three containers at a hotel parking lot about 20 minutes from the athletic village.
Fourteen chefs prepare three boxed meals a day for each team member, as well as more than 400 boxes provided to players and officials daily.
Yonhap said their decision to make their food was due to fears for food from Fukushima.
Fukushima is a Japanese region that revealed high levels of radiation following the tsunami reduction in the nuclear power plant in March 2011.
The kitchen team will spend all the games in the hotel.
But the project will be discontinued if one tests positive for the coronavirus, Yonhap quoted Jeong Nyeon Goo, head of operations at the national training center, as saying.
