Is it too late to cancel this 🤬 altogether? Sounds like the perfect storm for a worldwide outbreak if you ask me.

Study: Rio Olympics Will Expose Athletes To Antibiotics-Resistant Super Bacteria

http://deadspin.com/study-rio-olympics-will-expose-athletes-to-antibiotics-1781810923

Athletes and spectators at the Rio Olympics will be exposed to deadly, antibiotics-resistant super bacteria according to two research studies reviewed by Reuters.

Researchers found the super bacteria—which normally only turn up in hospitals—at the swimming and canoeing/rowing venues. The microbes had previously been detected at the sailing and wind-surfing sites. Hospitals in Rio de Janeiro regularly dump waste into storm drains and rivers, substantially polluting that city’s water supply.

The study found that 90 percent of samples from Flamengo Beach—the spectator location for sailing events—had the super bacteria.

The super bacteria can cause hard-to-treat urinary, gastrointestinal, pulmonary and bloodstream infections, along with meningitis. The CDC says studies show that these bacteria contribute to death in up to half of patients infected.

    eh... i'm pretty much sure, first world countries not stealing their resouces would mean much more 2 them...
    also, athletes health>>>> 🤬 like hope, and dreams, and aspiration. you only have one life, the olympics are every four years...

    also, the simple fact the olympics had years to switch locations, and didn't... shows how little they care, about athletes health.

    That because pretty much all international sports committees are corrupt. That 🤬 they did for the Russian Winter Olympics was straight-up criminal.

    Rio de Janeiro’s state government is declaring a state of “public calamity” and says extreme measures must be taken or this summer’s Olympics won’t happen.

    The statement calls for immediate emergency actions must be taken to prevent a “total collapse in public safety, health, education, transport and environmental management.”

    Brazil’s government is a disaster, with most top federal officials under investigation for corruption and the economy a wreck due to low oil prices—leaving it in essentially no condition to safely conduct an event that will bring an estimated half-million people to Rio. The city’s atrocious sanitary conditions threaten to expose athletes and spectators to deadly, antibiotics-resistant super bacteria, as well.

    Of course, we hear this every Olympiad. Athens was a wreck, Beijing a mess, and Sochi was completely unfinished—until the Opening Ceremony kicked off, when suddenly whatever needed to be done, was done. It wouldn’t be cynical to expect the same come August, but no host country has ever been in such dire financial and leadership straits as Brazil is right now.

    I’m usually cynical about the chicken-little claims that a given Olympics is going to be a disaster. Biennially, everyone spends the run-up to the games fretting, and then the games go off largely hitchless. (And then the disaster strikes as the mountain of debt.) But Rio de Janeiro sure is doing its damndest to prove the doomsayers right.

    The World Anti-Doping Agency (which sucks—seriously it sucks) announced today that it has suspended the accreditation of the Brazilian Doping Control Laboratory in Rio—the lab that was scheduled to handle tests during the Summer Olympics, and the only WADA-accredited lab anywhere nearby.

    The suspension, due to an unspecified “non-conformity,” prevents the Rio lab from testing 🤬 and blood samples. So...how are these Olympics going to go down?

    So no drug testing but you might catch a deadly bacterial infection. Hmm...
