The COVID Olympics

Submitted by ub on

What if there was a decision to hold Olympic Games in Japan but nobody was sitting in the stands to watch the athletes compete?

Empty stadiums. A resurgent virus. Angry voters. The Tokyo Olympics are turning into a nightmare for Japan’s leaders. The 2021 Olympics a $20 Billion Bust for Japan. Nation expected a windfall, but the disgruntled want it gone.

Three people who tested positive for #COVID19  inside the Olympic Village had close contact with 21 others, according to Olympic covid updates. 

There are reportedly three additional Olympics-related folks who have tested positive for a total of 58, so far and that includes one journalist. A Chilean taekwondo athlete and a Dutch skateboarder are the latest Olympic athletes to test positive for coronavirus at the Tokyo Games.

And now, as the games are set to begin, there is the Delta as well as the new lambda variant of COVID: What you should know. The lambda variant is the latest to be dubbed a "variant of interest" by the WHO. Is it worth being worried about in the USA?…
