The testing is a joke but holding an olympic relay in this surge or olympics for that matter is close to criminal.

IOC must be held criminal liable if people in Japan die because of the Olympics. But they actually can’t by conteact just as IOC is not held to pay taxes on the Olympics

you could also put the number of vaccinated in this daily reports.

let me start:

40,000 people vaccinated to date.

Caution still needed.

There used to be a user who posted regularly about the ‘perfect numbers’ being presented each afternoon and the lack of the sound of ambulances during their daily ‘long walk’ as evidence of a lack of COVID-19 problems.

I wonder where they went...

Why is it that japan never seem to exceed over 10k tests?

this is such a joke, and only 40,000 vaccinated people in almost a month is bs.

the gov need to step up their game BIG time. Mind you, it’s been over a year and they haven’t done anything yet so I don’t hold my breath.

Ah yes, the highly scientific measure of the increase in Covid cases - the sound of ambulances in a city of 15 million people.

It’s pretty maddening that Suga will be vaccinated only so he can go on a trip to the US next month to meet Biden.

it’s outrageous on so many levels.

The user is like a bad penny. I will not be at all surprised if a ‘new’ poster appears making the same claims.

That would be a good news only if it was per day, in a city like Tokyo. In a country of 126 million it's like a spit in the ocean.

Yeah, I'm sure LDP propaganda will say it's the EU and/or US fault for not bringing more vaccines here, etc

It's not that bad.

Up to 230,000 total now.

Looks like they're averaging at about 35,000 a day. So to get 80% of the population vaccinated, we'll be good in about 2,900 days.

The panicademic is finished, people are out and about on mass.

Claims of over run hospitals have proven to be unfounded.

If the government don't see the need to vaccinate a.s.a.p it's impossible for people to be expected or choose to stay home. Especially when all but the very elderly are at risk in Japan.
