Tokyo’s sweltering summer is adding to the pressure felt by the Olympic athletes this year. On July 21, 2021, temperatures hit 33.1 degrees Celsius (91.6 Fahrenheit) and Japan’s weather bureau issued heatstroke alerts for the fifth straight day.

Experts warned that the recent Covid-19 spike and the swell of heatstroke patients could put a strain on the health care system.

Some people don't understand that humidity makes it feel much hotter

Sora says:

They have to hold the Olympics and Paralympics in the middle of summer because there are few other sports events happening in this season. This was accused of even before covid. Lately in Japan, weather forecasters often say “it’s dangerously hot outside.” Why do they hold in such harsh conditions? Because of money of course. I fear that this Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics will be one of the most shameful ones.
