Food served up robotically at Beijing Olympics, Thousands of games-related staff to be cocooned

Journalists arriving early for the Beijing Winter Olympics have been among the first to have their food served up to them remotely.

Thousands of games-related staff, volunteers, cleaners, cooks and coach drivers will be cocooned for weeks in the so-called “closed loop” with no direct physical access to the outside world.

Anyone entering the bubble must be fully vaccinated or face a 21-day quarantine when they touch down. Inside, everyone will be tested daily and must wear face masks at all times.

The system includes dedicated transport between venues, with even “closed-loop” high-speed rail systems operating in parallel to those open to the public. It is set to be operating well into late March and possibly early April.

This is inhuman.

The idea is great, but the execution is a bit scary.

It's more like automatic production line inside a factory, rather than the feeling of warm and friendly in a cafe or restaurant that we used to know and use.

I think it takes time.

But at least this is the first step rather than no step at all.

Weird Olympics for a second time, after Japan.

Those with steel nerves will win lots of medals, haha.

Make sure those from US are screened for covid19 and their blood samples kept. Or we see another Wuhan.

they are free to leave. it is better for Olympics to be limited to athletes only, or cancelled altogether, for safety reasons.
