Saw this happening.  Just wonder what this means to 2020 supposed to be released cameras.  I get they are already delayed, but what sort of impact will this now have?

Tough to say considering so many people are staying in isolation.   Only dragging on the fix to all of this.

Tokyo Olympics seem unlikely under the current Coronavirus Pandemic. It is a shame, as I was looking forward to the event, which looked frankly interesting - with robotic assistants, Nintendo mascots, and a futuristic outlook to it all.
