You guys must all be Samosa fans.
The safety tips given is not helpful to anyone.

For example, 259 people died in road accidents during Eid festivities in Bangladesh. This is terrible by any standard.

So, anyone willing to visit Bangladesh? The advice will be ..

"DO NOT GO OUTSIDE YOUR HOTEL or ANYWHERE NEAR THE ROAD"

YOU WILL DIE.

Now think how awful and irrational that sounds.

Do I fear to live in London? ............... NO
DO I fear to go out in London? ...............NO
Do I fear to go to any sporting or cultural events in London? .........NO
Do I experience racism in London?...................................... NO

So why a paint a picture that doesn't represent London? Particularly to people who don't know London and may visit to enjoy a global sporting event?

No advice is much better than bad advice.
