Going to be a good Holiday Period for us here in Japan. Let’s all enjoy and spread joy and be thankful we aren’t living in the States or Europe.

Yeah, let's spread joy and beware of the virus!

But how about waiting a little until we know what's going on?

Right you are, Steve. Japan's made all the right moves during the pandemic as evidenced by the low death rate and compliance with protective measures. The omicron variant is expected is become the prevalent variant in most countries by early January even with draconian lockdowns againlooming but we in Japan will likely be able celebrate the New Year without any restrictions.

Imagine if it has one of the best

Time to let vaccinated, negative tested residents skip a nightmare quarratine in a Toyoko Inn jail and let them go home on the train.

"The number of infected people hospitalized with severe symptoms in Tokyo is three,"

....yawn. It is almost sad, seeing how the media try to keep this issue alive.

So the Canadians seem to have a new non-MRNA vaccine that has shown strong efficacy against the delta variant, which the other currently approved vaccines did not have stage three tests on (since it didn't exist when they did their stage 3 tests).

It's interesting, as it's a new type of vaccine:

The vaccine, which is plant-based, “uses living plants as bioreactors to produce a non-infectious particle that mimics the target virus, without the use of any viruses,” according to the company. The technology produces Virus-Like Particles (VLP) for the protein vaccines, which mimic the actual coronavirus and can be easily picked up by the immune system. VLPs are not infectious and unable to replicated.

This one is going to enrage both the anti-vaxxers AND the anti-vegans though:

“It will probably be the first virus-like particle vaccine for COVID, the first Canadian based vaccine for COVID, and it will be the world’s first plant-based vaccine for human use of any kind,” he said.
