No you’re nit being rude this time I agree.
Things work differently in each country, Australia seems to be doing not badly but is much different than Japan. Much more obese people, smaller population in a larger land mass. Also there have been some draconian lockdowns there which I find abhorrent.

Im afraid I don’t know their mindset so I cannot answer. I think many have fallen for the hysteria in the western press about Covid Doomsday Scenarios. This has made theM fearful of daily activities and any socializing. This leads to depression and anger and resentment to those who carry on with their lives even if taking precautions.

The Covid Conspiracy Theorists are people who claim the virus is far deadlier than it actually is for the average person. They live in fear and want lockdowns and compulsory vaccinations. Their fear makes them slightly deluded and angry, anyone who disagrees with their theory is branded as selfish, some go as far as calling others killers
There are numerous examples posting here daily to varying degrees.

Great idea for those living in fear of Covid to go home and get the shot. More vaccines for people here, kills two birds with one stone.

Don’t be afraid tennis stars. I know many may have concerns due to the Covid Conspiracy theorists who wants us all in lockdown and vaccinated.
It will be one of the safest places on the planet. Let’s enjoy the events and see dreams come true

It’s all going as planned. well done for managing so well under adversity and negativity from the Covid conspiracy theorists

You claim that nobody that matters wants the Olympics. Do you have any evidence of this?
I also wonder what type of person it is that matters, I take it you are one for example?

I point out these people as those at risk which is still minimal apart from over 80’s. I thought my posts made it clear my views which are, that for the majority of people Covid is not a serious issue. Therefore lockdowns are unnecessary and continuing daily lives and events should continue but with added precautions.

I never mentioned the value of life of a young or elderly person, this is an assumption on your behalf or perhaps a slur on my character to reinforce your beliefs.
The Risks to non elderly and healthy remains incredibly low, I have never mentioned only elderly die. Most younger who die are obese. Olympic athletes and their. Entourage are unlikely to have health issues
-9 ( +0 / -9 )
Yes it is wise. This is a large event which the world needs to show the world life can go on. Everything in life has risks but with the constant testing and supervision the risks are negligible. We can all live under a rock and like hermit until there in no Covid worldwide
The risks to healthy non seniors is incredibly low. If this was a mass event for seniors or obese then yes, there may be issues

Thousands of people in Japan currently have Covid yet one infected guy in a protected environment is going to cause chaos. This really is a conspiracy theory, it’s all speculation and spreads unnecessary fear.
-16 ( +0 / -16 )
No idea and no idea of those against it, The Olympics won’t risk its reputation by being unsafe, it would be madness. The fact the more or less of doctors want the Olympics to go ahead is irrelevant to me. The organizers and the government will have taken top medical advice. I have no fears of super spreading or mass deaths etc
-15 ( +0 / -15 )
As they say, the show must go in, or in this case the games. The Olympics is a very important worldwide event. Huge effort is being made to ensure the games are safe
Safety is paramount and the Olympics will be.

Normality must never be considered a luxury. That’s why life must go on, including sporting events loved by millions around the globe. Anything else can slowly turn into oppression and tyranny.

Yes I read your comments, very peculiar train of thought. I can’t imagine how you think this event is so dangerous compared to say people on their daily commutes in packed trains.

Sounds great, hope you both had a lovely time.
In Kyobashi right now, seen some places openly selling alcohol, I did not partake due to taking Covid precautions.
-4 ( +7 / -11 )
Wow, totally in shock at all these selfish comments here. These athletes wearing for years, decades even for this opportunity and you wish to deny them this? More ridiculous comments like this will cause chaos such as in India. What planet are some of you people on? I’m out and about in Osaka today, life is as normal. Yet these athletes will be sheltered from the public and constantly tested.
-13 ( +3 / -16 )
Can people please stop being so negative. These games mean so much to so many and they provide hope to the world after. Covid. Life has to go on, we can’t all bunker down and live like hermits forever.
Adequate precautions are being taken to ensure safety for all.
if you don’t like it don’t watch, please don’t try to end these young people and their families dreams over irrational fears

Watched Palace, one for a change but only against a dire Blades team. Don’t enjoy football as much as years ago, all changes have been for the worse. Just glad I can watch every match ion DAZN here

Personally I won’t be having the vaccine at present but I find this bizarre. Plenty of people it can be helpful to, the obese, the elderly and those with chronic health conditions. Surely they knew in advance of the need to find a way to administer the vaccine in a fast and effective manner. This is not the 80’s anymore, the world changes fast, decisions have to be made quickly. Many people are relying on these vaccines to feel at ease and safe from Covid yet they are being let down.
stop the endless meetings that go on for weeks and implement a programme now, other countries did it, why not here?
-2 ( +1 / -3 )
well, we all see things differently. I see this as something that needs and will be dealt with. I don’t believe the virus is as deadly as made out and I don’t believe all the doomsday scenarios either. Personally I take precautions, such as not going to bars, not meeting friends at all. I only go out with my partner and yes we go for picnics etc which I encourage all to do if they take precautions. With my work I have to travel around parts of the country, meet people and view things in a way impossible online. I have long term contracts which mean it would impossible no to fulfil commitments if I stayed indoors. My work may not be the norm but with sensible precautions I have no fears at all for my or my partners health.

This is not Australia, if you work for a company and don’t go you will be sacked. They will not pay you to stay at home, your living in a dreamworld if you think that is likely anytime soon in Japan.
People have changed their behavior, wearing masks etc. Every person is different as is every nation.

Please show actual evidence that supports this claim, not research and speculation but evidence such a a huge rise in the death rate. Japans fell last year. The amount of deaths cannot be hidden .
-19 ( +3 / -22 )
what you think is unlikely to be true, the low amount of deaths show that.
-19 ( +4 / -23 )
if you or the government or anyone else pays me to stay in so I cannot work then things may be different. Going out earning a living and supporting local businesses Is far from selfish and ignorant. Yeah lockdowns went great in U.K. with half the Japan population and 127000 deaths. High deaths there are caused mostly by high obesity rates, low physical fitness, closer day to day contact and poor hygiene compared to Japan.

Lockdowns and curfews? This isn’t the Middle Ages or Nazi Germany.
-7 ( +2 / -9 )
The conspiracy theorists are very much out in force today. People wishing violence on those who carried on with their lives and the bizarre one that deaths are really 10 times the reported figure. Deaths in Japan fell last year, yet this incompetent government are alleged to have hidden 100,000 deaths
Covid is a problem but not as high a danger as the conspiracy theorists make out. Take precautions, get on with life and enjoy yourself.

It’s Japan not good old Blighty.if you don’t work you’ll be sacked. For me, I’m self employed which requires traveling almost daily,if I don’t go out I cannot make a living.
