Tokyo Olympics have 'far exceeded' his expectations

Of Couse it has, Japan makes the difficult look easy. Exceeding expectations is second nature to Japan.

These things happen fairly regularly, in some cases it is 1, 2 or 3 victims in other cases it is a dozen.

No that regularly. In fact, they are rare. When was the last mass knife attack? The last one was in 2019. Two years ago. Now, take a look at the US and mass shootings in 2021

411 shootings and 437 killed and 1688 wounded.

This truly is a sign how things have deteriorated in US society.

No it isn't. If you don't test enough, which Japan is not doing, then if someone does die of Covid but wasn't tested for it, then it is not counted as a death

lol, yes it is. it gets count as a death. if you look at the excess death count Japan lost fewer people during 2020

You simply refuse to believe the numbers because you are blinded by hate.

"Ultraconservative Nagoya has such nice politicians."

and Progressive New York has such nice politicians as well. Here is a good example:

11 women, 7 years of sexual harassment: explore the timeline of Cuomo's alleged misconduct

In Japan:

Nagoya mayor under fire for biting Olympian's gold medal

In the west:

A governor sexual harasses 11 women.

I think I would prefer "Ultraconservative" Nagoya to progressive New York, particular if I were a woman. How about you?

"Toyota Motor Corp, which owns the club team Goto plays for, has also criticized Kawamura, saying in a statement, "It was an unworthy act and lacks respect"

LOL at Toyota. Hey Toyota didn't you pull all your CMs for the games? Now you are complaining? LOL

"Which is meaningless, bring a professional in a related field to put his name to this declaration and it would have some weight, from him it has absolutely no importance."

OK, here you go:

The infections currently being reported were also contracted up to two weeks ago, before the start of the Games, though personnel had begun to arrive.

“I think what is going on in Japan right now is more reflective of the global picture of increased case numbers,” Andrew Nelson, a University of Minnesota pathologist who contributed to a CDC study on the Sturgis motorcycle rally told me in an email. “Related in part to the delta variant and importantly related to rates of vaccination in specific locales.”

"The question that I really want to ask Bach and Suga. How many Japanese were turned away from hospitalization because beds and medical staff that were were solely allocated to the Olympics could not be used?"

Zero. Since, each team brought their own doctors and health care workers. Here is a good example:
