Olympics could be a cowardly-19 ‘super evolutionary event’
As far as the Olympic community is concerned, McCloskey said the system is not a failure. Quite the opposite – each represented a more contagious timeline cut than it could be. “What we’re seeing was basically what we were hoping to see,” McClakey told reporters at a press conference in Tokyo on July 19, a week before the opening ceremony. “If I thought all the tests we did would be negative, I wouldn’t bother to test.”
Hey, about 15 out of 15,000 competitors and tens of thousands of reporters and other Olympic activists, 91 positive things aren’t bad, right? For a few disease experts and athlete advocates, the answer is: it’s really, really bad because of what he says about the preparations, and what could happen next.
At least, that’s it What some scientists and experts have been saying. Hitoshi Oshitani, an economist who has devised a strategy against Japan, said Times London did not think it was possible to play a safe Olympics. “There are issues in many countries that do not have many issues, and in countries that do not have different situations,” Oshitani said. Times. We should not play in the Olympics [an occasion] Spreading the virus in these countries. There is not much danger in the United States and the United Kingdom, where people are vaccinated. But most countries in the world do not have this vaccine.
McCluskey estimates that about 85% of those who come to Tokyo will be vaccinated against polio. But only 22% are Japanese. This is one of the lowest rates in all rich countries. Combined with the relatively low number of cases in Japan, this means that most of the population does not yet have antibodies to the virus. They are what epidemiologists call “speech”. This means that Japan may, as the aspect goes, be successful. “Clearly, there is a lot of cost involved in hosting the Olympics,” said Samuel Scorpino, managing director of patient monitoring at the Rockefeller Foundation’s Institute of Epidemiology. “Because of course it’s a risk to gather people in a gathering in a country where there’s not necessarily a vaccination and the population is basically no exception.”
The rugged, airborne spread of CWED-19 means that testing must be done frequently at least once a day to catch cases before they can infect others. For example, the US National Football League and the National Basketball Association use strict, successful disease control measures, all hygiene and distance measures, as well as a strict test trace isolation procedure. The NFL conducted daily reverse transcription PCR tests and provided players and staff with a single-purpose electronic device that recorded close contacts. A total of 15 minutes or more is considered a high risk. Over time, the NFL supplemented the electronics with intense personal interviews to intensify the nature of these contacts. (Masked? Indoors? While eating?). “What the NBA did was women’s basketball, which I suggested last year – to design a bubble,” says Annie Sparrow, a health science and policy professor at Mountain Population. When you join it, you won’t be out. Sina Medical School. “At the Olympics, you never have a way to create a bubble. This cannot be done on a scale alone.
In early July, Sparrow and a group of other American researchers published a comment New England Journal of Medicine Oshitani expressed similar concerns. He added that the strategy developed by McClokey’s group was based on old information about the dynamics of the virus.
The article echoes criticism from the World Players Association, an international group that works with athletes’ unions around the world. The WPA argued that this had no effect, as there was no response from the IOC – considering contacting the rules, say, contact or track running in individual gymnastics outside the rugby pitch. Is synonymous WPA representatives criticized Playbox’s advice on the condition of the shared room and once opening the windows for ventilation, something that could actually be impractical in the scorching heat of Tokyo. What’s even worse about the project: allowing a variety of masks and personal protective equipment, using phone apps to track contacts instead of dedicated tech, and WPA representatives said the only nuisance Are demanding Matthew Graham, director of legal and player relations at the WPA, says, “When it comes to code, there is never a risk of zero, but there can be much more.” “We, like the athletes we represent, hope this can be done safely, but there should be no cost involved.”
