What do you think of the Olympics during the Covid-19 pandemic?

Hosting a major event like the Summer Games during a pandemic is a challenge: Japan decided to bar spectators from the events to avoid a rise in coronavirus infections and declared a state of emergency in Tokyo. Residents aren't happy about this - and some athletes have tested positive after their arrival in the Olympic Village.

How do you feel about the Tokyo Games taking place despite the pandemic? In your opinion, are Olympics without spectators and the usual festive atmosphere inside and outside the stadiums? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
