There is no way the Olympics can go ahead as scheduled. Even if the virus calms down in Japan, opening up to visitors from all over the world will reintroduce the disease. Besides that I think we are just at the beginning and things are going to get a lot worse. There isn't any hope that this will be over by July.

I don't think they'll need to 'cancel' the Olympics as such - I think countries will start to say that they won't send a team. If the USA or Germany declare as such many others will follow suit.

Yes you are quite correct. And even if new cases have dropped to zero around the world, which is highly unlikely, the risk of a resurgence would be just too high.

Let the games begin (NOT!!!)

This looks more and more like in the good old Roman times.

Bread and games for the masses, so they stay quiet.

If it was for the health and benefit (also) of the athletes - cancel those games!

Just postpone the Games now, and make plans for the next year or two.

"We need to think about taking the first step, before the IOC."

Why do the Japanese organisers always act like they're in charge? The IOC are the ones that have the final say and coordinate with all the other Olympic bodies around the world so I don't see the Japanese think they can do whatever they want
