Brazil will sell a range of health products to athletes and spectators during the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics, the country’s health ministry said on Tuesday, ahead of the opening ceremonies on August 9.
Rio’s Health Ministry said it was announcing the changes to the Olympics in a statement on its website.
It said that Rio’s Health Commission will issue regulations and guidelines for the sales of health care products, and that the country will launch an online platform where athletes and the public can report any complaints or problems.
It also said that athletes, health officials, athletes’ representatives, athletes and their sponsors will be trained to manage the products and the distribution.
It is also expected that athletes will receive free food and drink during the games.
Brazilian officials and athletes have been complaining of a lack of access to clean drinking water, and of poor hygiene.
Rio has been battling the Zika virus for weeks, and the virus has forced tens of thousands of residents to seek treatment abroad.
