And this happened only for a single and relative contained sport,18 of them infected even if they tried to prevent it.

Now magnify the whole thing and put it in an Olympic scale where thousand of athletes and staff will gather together.

I fully agree, especially as there will be many athletes, team supporters, and fans coming from countries where the virus existence is concealed or fraudulently reported. It will be very difficult to trace any infection routes, and many infections will only show up in Japan after the vectors have flown back home.

coupled with the low testing alot of infected people are moving unknowingly around infecting others.
