Effects of coronavirus on professional races

I am quite surprised by the vaccine rates of Japan (11%). the more developed countries are ~ 40%. Considering the Olympics is coming, i suspect that there will be a fifth wave during the Olympics. Greed and Sloth right there.
Simply, Japan would not give emergency exemptions for vaccines - They foolishly decided to run their own clinical trials which resulted in them losing around 3 months - They are to blame.

Unfortunately, Cyclingnews has chosen to publish an article that blames Fuglsang's current condition on the Covid vaccine...sure, they changed their headline a bit, but still doesn't alter the fact that there is 0 scientific proof of the assertion. With the ongoing difficulties to get people to vaccinate, this article plays into the hysteria regarding the vaccine. Please don't listen to the ignorance that the vaccine is dangerous. It's 99.99% more dangerous to not get vaccinated.

It can't be denied that some people get a bit sick after getting the vaccine.
 
Well, there's the Corona thread in the café for this, but it still feels a bit weird, there are so many people in the world who want to get vaccinated and can't... when a country has more than its people want just give it to whoever in the world wants it.
 

I hope there's no more positives beyond today's news, but I'm not optimistic with the 10s of thousands of people descending on Tokyo and surrounds.

Fingers crossed for the bike races, bad luck for Martinez.

From an epidemiological perspective these games are crazy.
 
Sporting events have been held for the last 12 months following COVID protocols - These events would not happen if there are too many issues - Martinez is a false positive - He got infected after the Giro but you can still test positive for three months - In many cases a Martinez case has been given the all clear.
