Almost 1500 athletes and support staff some vaccinated some not. My question is who is footing the bill for multiple air flights and the accommodation for their two week isolation on return.

I wanted to ask the same question and wonder why the Australian press in their rabid promotion of the Olympic dream make no mention of this - the cost of the quarantine and the issues like where will there be enough quarantine hotels for the returning athletes. How it will effect the quotas for incoming people to Australia and so on ( yes incoming numbers are restricted and external travel is banned except for special exemptions such as will be for the Olympics) . They also gloss over the situation in Japan reporting the number of cases, but saying nothing about the lack of contact tracing and the extreme low number of tests, no social distancing, no restrictions of any kind except shutting bars early ( which is never mentioned) all of which are completely the direct opposite of their own anti virus policies.

Don't hold your breath!! It might overturn in a blink of an eye.

I forgot to mention the quotas thanks. Those people trying to get back are slugged with an expensive airfare not a free one.
