The Olympics should be cancelled in both Tokyo and Beijing.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that the world is "at war" with a new coronavirus infection. I think he is right.
In some countries, vaccination has been successful in controlling the infection, but in most other countries, including Japan, the spread of the disease is still continuing.
Especially in economically poor countries, it is difficult even to obtain vaccines.
UN Secretary-General António Guterres said, "I fear that the most vulnerable are suffering the most and that this is far from over," stressing the continuing danger of a "two-speed global response. Sadly, if we don't act now," he warned, "we will face a situation where the richest countries vaccinate the majority of their people and open up their economies, while the poorest countries continue to suffer deeply as the virus spreads and mutates.
This situation will improve, quite optimistically, by the end of next year. In other words, the state of war will continue until then.
This is the reason why it is better to cancel both this year's Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo and next year's in Beijing.
In addition, there is international criticism of the Chinese government's massacre in the Xinjiang Uyghur region and oppression of Hong Kong, and there is even a movement to boycott the Beijing Games. The Olympics should not be held in such a country now.
I believe that the cancellation of the Tokyo and Beijing Games will be acceptable
