No Tokyo, Osaka/Kyoto? Because Omicron numbers are not way up in these places yet?

1 ( +7 / -6 )

Very easy to point the finger at US army staff.

Take some responsibility for your own actions, please Japan.

-1 ( +18 / -19 )

It is flu season.

5 ( +14 / -9 )

If you really think that it will be limited only to those 3 prefectures then you are WRONG.

Soon STATE OF EMERGENCY will be imposed all over Japan.

-2 ( +7 / -9 )

It is odd that it doesn’t extend to Tokyo area where there are also US bases.

Case counts are meaningless. Many are asymptomatic.

Omicron is pretty harmless in the U.S.

If you get symptoms, it’s basically head congestion and cough.

US forces are 100% vaccinated and are being blamed for the spread of the virus to local communities within Japan. Well that pretty much lays to rest the older argument the it is the unvaccinated spreading the virus. Personally I think the spread of Omicron will assist Japan and the rest of the world in becoming immune naturally and relegate this virus to a level lower than the seasonal flu. It is a much preferred route to immunity than the vaccine for normal healthy people.

Until the number of cases from American personal come out, the number of cases in Okinawa was low.

It's not solely the case number and its daily change which decide the implementation of SOE/quasi. Tokyo as well as Osaka have so far maintained enough heathcare capacity in the face of Omicron-led surge such as bed occupancy rates.

stopped caring since the last cash payout. And wont care again until the next one.

Waiting until I finish my isolation caused by the last time my idiot boss called us all in to the office, in the same room, to expose us all to the virus before I worry about another state of emergency.

Then I expect him to persist with his fable about how COVID doesn't spread on trains and call us all in again.

So we're blaming all this to the US bases. Way to scapegoat Japan. This is low.

They're just waiting to find a way to blame the U.S. military there but haven't found one yet.

All Denny is capable of doing is pointing fingers, he has no ability to "lead" and should be kicked out on his arse!

I am personally vaccinated but it’s interesting how this is happening given the extremely high vaccination rate in Japan. Safe to say we can’t bad our way out of this or just wait it out.

Happy Day: You can personally vouch for the symptoms?
