Seems life expectancy of the Japanese increased inspite of the pandemic

life expectancy in Japan increased overall last year and the country’s men and women can now expect to live longer than people anywhere else in the world.

The virus will not be eliminated, it's endemic. The world has no choice but to learn to live with it.

How can you know? We are forced to live with it. Real elimination lockdowns haven’t been applied so far, so nobody can state they work or fail. Btw., estimates are, that there exist as many viruses as beach sand. And although that number is sheer overwhelming, only very few people are entangled by sand. In other words, if we are condemned to accept the viruses, at least there should be some separation efforts. Not that we all die tomorrow morning, but we cannot live with the viruses for a longer time span, I am sure. Decreasing vaccine efficacy, life expectancies or LongCovid as well as economic, social and psychological distortions give a clear sign for that. How often can everyone win those bettings in a row, next booster, next infection wave, while quickly getting in affected age groups oneself? It’s not very probable to stand it all as long as it had been before the pandemic. In addition, the body’s resources necessary against the viruses are used and then aren’t available against other infections, cancer and so on. It’s really a mess, although only a few might think so.

Small bump, but regardless of what the actual numbers are, the trend is looking good.

Just open up.

With numbers this low why are fully vaccinated folks still being made to self isolate on arrival?

 showing Pfizer employees admitting that natural immunity is better than what their product provides. This helps to prove that there is no need for most people to get a jab, 

Even if this is true the point of the vaccine is to prevent infections in the first place.

If by natural immunity you meant our natural immune system without having been infected it would mean that the vaccines actually lower protection

With numbers this low why are fully vaccinated folks still being made to self isolate on arrival?

I guess it's one of the measures why numbers are this low and it's still in place to try to keep it that way.

Until maybe they've reached their vaccination targets

just remember we've been warned of a 6th wave coming, so let's not get complacent and keep ourselves safe. We'll get there, slowly but surely.
