At this point? there are surely many plans including the cancellation of the games, the problem is that plan A calls for this to be denied at every opportunity.

Unfortunately it seems that Plan A specifically states 'There will be no other plans'.

The games are not going to be cancelled by anything related to covid-19. A massive natural disaster maybe but the decision on the games has been made and will be carried out regardless of public sentiment, budget or common sense.

Sorry, but there is no such thing as a "Plan B" in Japan, and the wait-and-pray approach is taken when what would otherwise be a "Plan A" is obviously not going to work. Then a complete denial any of it existed to begin with.

What is needed is a bit of a super shocking earth scare during the fake opening ceremony.

What a joke, anyone thinking there is a "Plan B" is smoking something pretty strong, and should be arrested for breaking the "Anti-stimulants Law"!

Why haven't they prioritized the vaccines the last 5 months then ? Why ?
