This in contrast to this morning’s headline: “Nothing can stop Tokyo Olympics from going ahead: IOC's CoateS”

At any cost” - Can Tokyo still spare 500 nurses?

14 ( +18 / -4 )

As long as there is no substance to the "whatever" SoE and no vaccination plan (talking about what might happen doesn't count), expect the numbers to just keep creeping up. Only a lunatic would want to hold the Olympics under these conditions.

Again. It is not 509 nurses. They want 10700 nurses and doctors. The initial 10.000 + 500 volunteering nurses and 200 volunteering docters

@robert maes

the other day when Suga said they needed 500 nurses and it was no problem because a lot of them were taking time off, are those 500 nurses supposed to be unpaid volunteers?

if so I totally missed that, makes it even more ridiculous he expects them to work for free bloody hell.

The link above shows yesterday's data of more than 1000 cases out of fewer than 10,000 tests.

Let's heartful Olympic!

Less than 10,000 tests is that nation wide? Even for a mega city like Tokyo that’s pretty low.

The rate of infection seems to be leveling off. The state of emergency needn’t have been extended.

Cancel the Olympics? Over their dead bodies.

Oh and re the vaccines https://australiannationalreview.com/health/french-drug-evaluation-center-concludes-all-4-covid-vaccines-should-be-discontinued/

The Australian National review article cites the source of that report to the article published by 'The BL'

The BL is:

''Hundreds of fake account admins and 1,929 Facebook advertising violations only begin to tell the story of the Epoch Times-linked, pro-Trump empire known as The BL.''

Just sayin.

We have the cure. We somehow don't have enough meds and do not seem to know how to distribute the meds. Yet, the Olympic ghoul are calling for--what?--10,000 doctors and nurses. Insanity on top the pandemic.

Stop the Olympics.

New coronavirus cases is increasing gradually ...

This trend can't be stopped unless the government make a new attempt.

If you want to take a rushed “cure”, conveniently available within a year of this virus appearing - when we couldn’t for decades find a permanent one for the flu, or aids, be my guest.

it’s officially in trial phase till 2023. So I will wait till then and if I must (never had a flu vax and done fine) I’ll take it. If it’s the only way to see my family back in Oz.

I’m not embracing the wilder theories out there, just advocating caution.

121 deaths today.

Compared to 2 in the UK. And the gap between these two will widen. This is showing us the vaccines are working and is the only way to go. Practically all my relatives scattered around the world have already been offered them, and most of those who wanted them have had their two doses already. Me? Next year, maybe. Depends on when Suga gets his head out of his ...
