Looking at the data provided in this article we can see that those from overseas are more at risk from Japanese residents than the other way round. Which is good because on Saturday I spent time in Akasaka and Shinjuku. I was surprised just how many athletes, coaches and officials were out and about.

What’s the plan, IOCJOC ??

‘Separate flights’ out for ‘the quarantined’ or, herd them together amongst all the others?

The figures released by the organizing committee, however, do not include those related to the Olympics that have been announced by Japanese central and local governments.

I think none of these people should be tested before getting on their flights to go home, because if they test positive they will have to stay in Japan and we don’t need the extra expense and hassle, and those beds need to be used for Japanese citizens and permanent residents.

There's a great headline hiding in there:

"Only bubble of interest to Japan is bubble tea, report concludes".

Just before Olympics closing, bubble produce 400 covid cases.

Not sure if it's clear, that's not 400 on the last day. It's 400 in total.

That includes people that are involved in the Olympics, the vast majority of which are not athletes.

400 total with 80,000 people from abroad that came for the Olympics and were tested almost daily. No superspreader outbreaks.

Bravo to Japan for pulling that off.

Yes. The infection rate is similar to that in Tokyo.

But, one more thing is interesting - how many of those people were fully vaccinated. Probably all.

@chris

Over 80%.

All the fear mongering that the Olympics would turn Japan into the next hotspot did not happen.

Just need to get control and vaccinations for all the 20-30 year old Japanese that gave up trying and things should be fairly stable.

Of the total, 16 are residents of Japan,

I hope they stay home from work. Then again, maybe home isn't safe if there are other family members there.
