By Aaron Humes: Beijing, China is preparing for the 2022 Winter Olympics where strict containment measures will aim to create a virus-proof “bubble” for thousands of international visitors at a time when omicron is fuelling infections globally, the Jamaica Gleaner reports.

The prevention protocols will be similar to those at the Tokyo Games in 2021, but much tighter.

Athletes will need to be vaccinated — or face a long quarantine — take tests daily and wear masks when not competing or training.

Clapping is OK to cheer on teammates, not chanting. Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 will be sent into isolation and unable to compete until cleared for discharge.

China’s ability to stick to its zero-tolerance approach nationally is already being tested by the highly transmissible omicron variant, which is more contagious than earlier variants of the virus and better able to evade protection from vaccines.

With just weeks to go before the February 4 start of the Games, more than 20 million people in six cities are under lockdown after recent outbreaks.
