I believe Vancouver 2010 went pretty well.Yea, Japan’s done well in containing COVId without strict lockdowns. Seems silly to risk that by having tens of thousands of foreign folks converge on Tokyo at once.
Why any city would want the Olympics, I have no idea. With the exceptions of LA in 84 and Barcelona in 92, it’s a completely wasteful boondoggle. Athens 04 in no small part contributed to its financial collapse.
You are right that so much can change in 8 months.Olympics is 8 months away ffs. All of the athletes will be vaccinated by that time and the olympics will be played.
Well but 250ish countries, most of them vaccinated with Chinese or Russian vaccines...Olympics is 8 months away ffs. All of the athletes will be vaccinated by that time and the olympics will be played.
Just check who buy what and you will be surprised.... Data are on medias and OMS website...Most of the vaccines administered will be US of UK based; Pfizer & Oxford vaccine.
So far, it does not really matter to the Japanese which vaccine international arrivals have used to be vaccinated.
Sounds wise. The problem for those planning to compete is they can need to commit well in advance.I would expect vaccination will have beat COVID back quite a bit by then, so wait and see I think
