Hundreds of rooms are also reportedly being set up outside the village to take in those who fall ill.
Great idea! Take those that get infected and secure them with thr general japanese population!

I am not a cop, but putting a man down by the knee, if only carrying a knife sounds much more sensible to me.
This situation was a "kill or be killed". Situation. You can't say how you would act unless you have been in a similar situation. Personally have been there a few times in the mexican police force. when it is my life or the other persons life..I chose to live, and will do what is needed to survive, just like the police officer did.

Potential Tokyo state of emergency does not affect Games: IOC
Potential Tokyo state of emergency does not affect the IOC's pockets being filled with money.
"This measure would be in line with the very diligent approach we see taken by Japanese authorities," he said following an IOC Executive Board meeting and a report from the Tokyo Games organizers.
What very diligent approach is this man speaking of?

"Considering the request by Osaka Prefecture, we would like to swiftly reach a conclusion after thoroughly assessing the situation and studying the contents of the measures," Suga said at a Diet session the same day.
What is there to assess? Let me assess the assessors from my smart phone! There is a huge spike in COVID19 cases in the listed prefectures. Impliment a SOE. Online learning, no intertravel between prefectures, close restraints/bar. Give the people in the SOE cities stimulus payments, and give the bars/restraunts cash weekly.
Therr ya go! Problem solved.

No gun was involved in this case. However, this just goes to show that you don't need guns to commit murder.

Shut it down, lock em up, close the bars, schools, restraunts...and give the Japanese some more free money! If Japan is TRUELY the 3rd worlds largest economy they should be able to give ¥120,000 to each person, including babies, and Children! My suggestion is to cut the "LDP's" pay and give it to the needy!

Unless you are part of the Olympic Royalty! Then you may come and go as you please! :::Slow clap for the J-Gov't:::::

Athletes are no one special. They are just that..an athlete. If the Tokyo Gov't has these shots ready at a moments notice, this means they are hoarding the shots, and not giving then to the genreral population...the J-Gov't is such an embarrasement to it self. They continue to look like a bunch of deragned old folks more and more.

This all just baffles us...I don't get it. All these politicians to irrogant to do the right thing? I just don't get it.

Japan needs to rely on foreigners. These people can contribute to society, and pay taxes! The population is aging and declining.

I would love to see Tokyo be RESPONSIBLE and test 60k people in one day. Then we can see the truth. However the olympics are more important than humanity! Japan MUST have the Olympics to show that they can beat the Virus!, all while numbers keep climbing. I could not be any happier since I left!

Shouldn't this have been done long ago? Has the gov't not learned anything? I am just an average joe and I have more common sense than those in charge...get ALL the "leaders" out of here and start fresh...with some young people in charge!

summer isn't cancelled. You can go out! I was going out EVERYDAY since the pandemic..my family never had issues. Yes I wore a mask, but my life never changed. In fact I am outside now, at my home in mexico not wearing a mask and not have had a COVID shot. I am alive and well. Have no fear!

A century ago, in 1920, the Olympic Games were held in Antwerp, Belgium, while the world was just out of two major formidable events in which millions of people died: World War I and the Spanish Influenza.
KEYWORDS BEING "just being out of" This is the "4th wave" as the "experts" say. How is this "just being out of"?
The only thing "OUT OF" is this deranged ladies mind being out of touch with reality.

This is pitiful. COVID19 has NO connection to the olympics. Olympics can't beat a pandemic. This lady has completely lost her mind.

Of course he is going to say they will go on..just like he did last time..he has to stick to his guns and not give up..until the last minute, in which he will say they are cancelled.

This guy is a real piece of work! What the J-Gov't needs to realize is the "Japanese panel of experts" they use is just that.."A Japanese Panel of experts, that are not so expert". If this was safe why are they not dumping it right now? I want to see Aso drink it on NHK. Not a glass of water someone hands him, but show LIVE on camera Aso drinking water DIRECTLY from the tank.
