Alcohol, high-fives and talking loudly will be banned for the reduced numbers of Olympic ticket holders allowed into venues as organisers concede a "sense of celebration" will be limited at a Games already postponed by a year due the coronavirus.

Organisers have pushed ahead with preparations for the Olympics, still called Tokyo 2020, despite strong concerns among the Japanese public that hosting competitors from around the world could result in further COVID-19 outbreaks.




quote:

A crowd of people gathered in front of the metropolitan government headquarters on Wednesday evening to protest against the Games, with participants chanting "cancel Olympics", "stop the torch", "save lives", and "protect livelihoods".

A month before the opening ceremony on July 23, Tokyo Olympics President Seiko Hashimoto reiterated that organisers wanted a safe and secure Games.

"If our citizens have concerns (over serving alcohol at the Olympics), I think we have to give up on that. That's why we have decided to ban the sale of alcohol," she told reporters.

None of these types of measures did shite in stopping the spread. At what point to the people in charge start using their brains?

They feel like they have to do something even though they know its worthless

As a general rule politicians are not capable of sitting back and doing nothing

The new safe, sterile, boring world. People afraid of their own shadow.

I couldn't imagine spending most of my life to make these Olympics and end up with such a shallow experience. Your parents can't even come.

Why are there Olympics then? What is the point?

This is going to be a disaster, and I'm happy to say I won't watch one second of this garbage.

We're well on our way to a left-wing dystopia where language and entertainment are banned because they're offensive and where physical contact is banned because of a fear of germs.

Next they'll probably announce condoms are mandatory at the Olympic Village.

I think they still plan on handing them out but discouraging their use
