  4. I just got back from Universal Studios Islands of Adventure in Orlando. I could barely walk thru the park and could only go on 3 rides in 5 hours due to over capacity. People are in no way shape or form worrying about Covid in the theme park where less then half the people were wearing masks. Covid? Didn't exist there that's for sure! Nobody seemed to be worried at all!

  5. Just call it a BLM protest, then no one will get covid

  6. China's viral weapons have ruined expectations for the Tokyo Olympics!!!

  7. Typhoon No. 8 is expected to hit the area. The water quality of the triathlon is in jeopardy.

  8. Cases does not equal hospitalization or severe symptoms. Are we just going to do this for the rest of life on Earth? This virus will never be eradicated.

  9. This country is under a complete mess and what they try to show the world is the worst and ugliest circus where the host holds all invitees as a ransom.

  10. Cancel the stupid games. It could turn into a super spreader event. Should have already been canceled.

  11. I'M SORRY FOR DIGRESSING WITH A DIFFERENT INTERFERENCE
    PLEASE, I NEED SOME ENLIGHTENMENT ABOUT CRYPTO IN LINE WITH AN EXPERT THAT CAN ASSIST ME TRADE AND GENERATE A GOOD PROFIT WITHOUT FEAR OF LOOSING MY MONEY

  12. WHOEVER THAT'S READING THIS , I PRAY THAT ONE DAY YOU WILL REACH YOUR DREAMS.
    ALWAYS KNOW THAT THE SECRET OF YOUR FUTURE IS HIDDEN IN YOUR DAILY ROUTINE. SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE DO DAILY WHAT THE UNSUCCESSFUL DO ONLY ON OCCASIONALLY.
    That's why the r i c h go into f i n a n c i a l m a r k e t i n g and the p o o r don't.
    The older I get, the more I see a straight path where I want to go. If you are going to hunt elephants🐘, don't get off the trail for a rabbit🐇.

  13. WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO RECOVER ALL THE INCOME YOU LOST AS A RESULT OF THE PANDEMIC AND ECONOMIC CRISIS? ? DON'T JUST SIT THERE TO WAIT FOR THAT SALARY ONLY. YOU NEED AN EXTRA SOURCE OF INCOME.
    PLANT A SEED TODAY FOR TOMORROW'S HARVEST.
    TRADING C-R-Y-P-T-O NOW WILL BE VERY WISE, ESPECIALLY TRADING WITH A KNOWN PROFESSIONAL TRADER LIKE M Ř WALDEN CARLIN

  15. Spastic leftists abound.

  16. If the International Olympic Committee and the Japanese Government really want the Games to take place, then presumably they do not see Covid as all that dangerous. If they did, the Games would be cancelled or postponed again. The same applies for those taking part – if they really thought the Covid pandemic was dangerous to themselves and to others, they would not participate in the Games.
    If doctors and other medical staff in Japan say it is too dangerous to health to host the Games now, clearly their advice should be heeded.
    All too often in the past, though, advice warning of catastrophe if nothing was done to deal with a problem was ignored occurred or an event going ahead when it should not, has occurred with disastrous consequences. A classic example of this was the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster in 1986. The difference between that accident and the Olympics now is that if things do go really wrong with Covid precautions – and things have gone wrong already with a still small but not insignificant Covid cases among athletics, the Olympics have the potential to harm and maybe kill, many, many more people than Challenger did.

  17. How many of the affected were vaccinated 🤔

  18. I thought by other reports that the people living in Tokyo would be happy to cancel the games, and they've been trying to get them canceled for a while now due to COVID and overspending and the fact that without public, there is not actual revenue going to the city, only the Olympics make their money with their own TV company.
