    Well, EU, just like IOC, is a part of the global elite that forgotten men and women of Japan do not trust.

    But even they would appreciate the 100 million doses of vaccine, which EU would not send to Japan if not for the Olympics.

    I'm sure that will convince the Japanese....


    One hospital director in Tokyo posted placards on the building with slogans such as, “Medical capacity has reached its limits. Stop the Olympics!” Susumu Morita, the secretary general of the Japan Federation of Medical Workers’ Unions, vented: “I am furious at the insistence on staging the Olympics despite the risk to patients’ and nurses’ health and lives.”

    The Olympic torch relay — designed to generate excitement about the upcoming Games, with torch runners zigzagging the country — has not inspired confidence: Numerous people working with the relay have tested positive for the coronavirus. Moreover, the event only features domestic participants and a mere fraction of the 11,000 Olympic athletes who will arrive in Japan from more than 200 countries, plus tens of thousands more in support staff.

    Japan’s pandemic state of emergency provides a historic challenge to the Olympic state of exception. When the IOC’s Coates was asked whether any scenario existed that would lead to cancellation or further postponement, he was blunt: “No, there’s not.” But the struggle between the Olympic state of exception and the coronavirus state of emergency continues, with only weeks until the Games are slated to begin. For now, the Olympics are superseding the virus as well as the will of the Japanese people. But if we’ve learned anything from the pandemic, it’s that prediction is a tricky business.

    That looks more like Bad Hammy there. But otherwise not bad...
