VTV.vn - The Pyeongchang Winter Olympics 2018 are on track though organizers are battling the spread of a virus among staff and preparing to deal with the cold snap at Friday's opening ceremony.

1200 private security staff have been sidelined as fear of a norovirus among some of them has forced organizers to replace them with 900 military personnel pending medical tests.

The virus is highly contagious and causes vomiting and stomach cramps among other symptoms. South Korea disease control center and other related government agencies are now discussing countermeasures.
