4 Yonhap said the decision to cook her own meals was due to Fukushima’s fear of food.

5 The city is the region of Japan exposed to high levels of radiation following a tsunami-triggered collapse at a nuclear power plant in March 2011.

6 The kitchen team will spend the entire Games at the hotel.

7 But the operation will have to be stopped if anyone tests positive for the coronavirus, Yonhap said citing Jeong Nyeon Goo, chief of operations at the national training center.

8 South Korean athletes have received local meals at the Olympics since the 2008 Games in Beijing, according to the report. (dpa / NAN) ()
