I could not imagine him saying anything else. Another oishii moment on a foodie programme.
Just get them over with and get the vaccination programme running on full steam.

For me, this spike is not surprising. Very alarming and disappointing but an inevitable consequence of having the "games". Once the games are over and reality bites again I hope that things will get better. But I fear that we are in for a tense conclusion to 2021 and more lessons have to be learnt before we can recover. Stay safe people.

If you can't stand the heat...
It is a well known fact that summer in Tokyo is very hot and humid.

The Athletes deserve better than your vitriol
Residents of Tokyo deserve much more than that!!!!
Congratulations to the winners. May they have a safe journey home and hope they can cone again in better times.

There was not much else to do on a Friday night during a SoE.
Elvis and Priscilla tuned in out of morbid curiosity because the Tokyo 2020 is all that has been taken about for literally years!! Got quickly bored and turned on Netflix once we saw someone representing their country not wearing a mask .
Tuned in on Saturday afternoon to see how things are going, again out of morbidness. Glad to see everyone having a nice time and achieving there dreams (at our expense).
Very sadden but not surprised when this news article appeared;
JOC head spotted chatting without wearing a face mask
Probably won't tune in again as I think we can all see where this event is heading.
Got me shakin' all over!!

It is the news sources keeping the "funk" alive. We get our daily serving of it without fail. As long as the news keep discussing it as negative entity, the Olympic "funk" will remain.

Only 22% of Japan’s population has been fully vaccinated so far.
how many have received one dose of the vaccine? I have read that even one shot gives significant protection.
-13 ( +6 / -19 )
eliminating risk is impossible
Now it is. A very redundant statement.
If only there had been a vaccine available for use at the beginning of this year. Wait a minute!?? There was!!!
What the heck was the government thinking by delaying vaccinations?? C19 was going to disappear??? That's the fool's paradise Tedros mentions!!!

At last. Let's get this done and over with.
Good luck to the competitors and take care everyone!!

Nice Confusius. I new my math was wrong but I though I would put my thoughts out there anyway!

On one side, most of Japan’s largely unvaccinated, increasingly resentful populace will continue soldiering on through the worst pandemic to hit the globe in a century
Check this link:
The Mainichi newspaper reports the Mininstry of Health C19 infection status. It states that over 70,000,000 vaccinations (at least one shot) have been administered. For a population of 126 million a majority have some protection (55%) so the population is NOT largely unvaccinated.
Please spare us the doom.

This report put me off my coffee! No time for sex. Arrive, compete, go home. Enough of the Olympics already.

Charging the people a higher fee to us their things that they paid for themselves through their tax system. Modern medieval serfdom, this whole Olympics thing.

Competitive sports bring out the worst in us. Mark my words. From the school play grounds to the stadia of the elite, the world of sport has dejected countless generations.

I suspect he gets a kick out of this attention as he just doesn't give up. Pushing for spectators if things improve just shows how insensitive to the whole situation he is. He really doesn't know when enough is enough.

Any violations and the team gets sent home ASAP.
That's what Elvis would do.

Interesting that they are the mirror image of each other.
Glad to see someone is having a nice time. Most of us are dreading what's about to unfold. Like sitting on a time bomb.
Take care everyone!!

“The problem is the controversy surrounding the Olympics, and it’s being very politicized," Zwigenberg told AP in an interview in Japan where he is doing research. "And that’s something that a lot of people in Hiroshima don’t like. They don’t like to have the image of their city wedded to this kind of controversial visit.
That is quite a reasonable conjecture.
What mess the IOC are in.

Resident-San, I think "dilemma" is being used as sarcasm
“It’s quite encouraging,” said Sowmya Kadandale, health chief in Indonesia of UNICEF
At last, some positive comments.

I respectfully disagree. It depends on how you look at it.
For instances, There was a lovely full rainbow afterwards and I got my first good view of the clear night sky in months. The weather was perfect around 10:30 pm. This was a very pleasant surprise
So not all doom gloom as every cloud has a silver lining.

Seems the ones getting the vaccine (over 50s) are falling out of the statistics. Good news.
