Tokyo Summer Olympics 2021: Covid-19 Cases at the 2021 Olympic Games

The Covid-19 virus is spiking cases and setting records in Japan. Since our July 23, 2021 update there have been many more cases, which aren’t being broadcast as widely.

The Greek artistic swimming team is the latest casualty as they had to withdraw because of positive cases and being quarantined.

According to USA Today, “All 12 team members have been moved out of the Olympic Village and are in quarantine, Tokyo 2020 spokesman Takaya Masa said Wednesday… Tokyo organizers reported 29 new cases of COVID-19 among Olympic personnel on Wednesday, a single-day high since they began tracking on July 1. Four of those were athletes, also a single-day high.”

Unfortunately, “Greece will miss the team competition in artistic swimming after five members of the 12-woman team tested positive for COVID-19 and the others were deemed to be close contacts”

Many athletes have had to come to the realization that attending the Tokyo Summer Olympics 2021 was a BIG risk.

Colombian street food is especially important in Colombian culture because it brings people together. They enjoy sitting in groups with family or friends, blocking off the sidewalks and alleyways as they devour tasty morsels of Colombian cuisine steeped in spices and ingredients.
