Russia is lucky in that it has been banned from sending athletes to the Olympics in Rio because of a dying scandal. These athletes will be spared the health risks that athletes headed to Rio will face. The country has the Zika virus. The risks to pregnant women are clear cut. The other public health risk is that infected mosquitos will bite those attending the games, those infected will return to their home countries were they will provide an infected blood source for mosquitos in their native lands. The Olympics provide a source of worldwide infection.
Recently, a multi-drug resistant bacteria has been found on beaches in Rio. This bacteria has generally been limited to hospitalized patients here in the United States. The risk is that this troublesome bacteria could now appear in the wild in the U.S..
Rio spent so much money on the Olympics that the city is in economic collapse
The country is in the midst of a Presidential impeachment.
The Olympics should be canceled. The infectious risk is not worth the medals that will be awarded.
