It' just the first month of 2021, we have yet to see how long this lasts.

Unlike most of 2020 in 2021 several vaccines are rolling out.
It's good to hear that they are taking this seriously.

I hope the brand new Evangelion movie doesn't get delayed again!

Anime production staff should go to the head of the line - we can't take another 2020!

I wholeheartedly disagree with you. Among the first people to get it are health care workers. With those people taken care then it can ho from there.

The joke! It's flying too high! And people's reflexes aren't fast enough to catch it!!

Also, Wonder Fest cancelled again?!

I wanna punch COVID in the face with a fistfull of monoclonal antibodies and/or mRNA vaccines!

I hope those packed-out Demon Slayer screenings were worth it. Confused

@gpanthony Look if it is a joke it was done in poor taste.This has taken and will continue taking a horrible toll for months to at least another year before it stops.
I do not remember where i saw it but i thought i read someplace that was cancelled again. But please do not quote me.

Nope, that's not how you make a joke. Try again.

Doesn't look like it's being taken too seriously - restaurants to close 2 hours early and events limited to half capacity. Seems like a half-measure. Although I shouldn't say anything, my country encourages the spread.

Look they want the Olympics or not cause if this keeps up no Olympics.
Seeing the amount of foreign traffic for the event it would be difficult even if just athletes only.

I do wonder what will happen with that. Athletes-only would certainly be the safest and most controllable way, but they'd give up on making basically all the money they sunk into the facilities. Olympics tend to run at a loss anyway, but not to that degree. More and more cities and countries are deciding that it isn't worth it, and I could easily see this pushing many more to decide it is too risky for something that amounts to just temporary prestige. Vaccines are slowly being administered, but there is a good chance many attendees wouldn't be vaccinated yet, whether it's because it wasn't their turn yet, or they are from a country that is still waiting to get any allotment.

Even then that's still what at minimum 4 (I think) people from each country and for the US and China we are looking at hundreds. To say nothing of all the foreign press. Then after the Olympics you have the paralympics so yeah. We all want them but I dunno if it will happen.
