Keep wearing masks and keep the borders locked down.

Amazing! Now is the time to open the border both ways for vaccinated travelers.

Nothing to say. I wish everybody in good health.

The November/December period will hopefully see Japan follow the lead of countries with similarly vaccinated populations by announcing the reopening of international borders.

Fully-vaccinated travellers who test negative before, and after, arrival are no more a threat than someone living in Japan an at this point.

Amazingly suspicious.

@Bokuda

Sorry to kill the hype:

PCR Tested on 10/15: 3,882

If that is the total for 3-days like they have been reporting after the Olympics then it is actually about 1000+ plus a day.

Lowering the number of tests mean lower infections recorded.

Finally, it's over.

Stickman, guess percentage wise not as good as Tokyo. But who am I to judge? Anything else you would like to know? And no, I'm still not willing to reveal personal information. Peace!

That's less than Auckland NZ.

Just for comparison. And question?? There are other countries with high vaccination rate, higher and done it quicker than in Japan, with mask wearing mandated, and 95% compliant, limits on socializing, outings, visits to FB outlets etc. Yet, the infections rate has gone up. Its also mandated, all front line employees, staffs etc, ie those who have a need to come into contact with the general public, eg FB outlet employee, people who work at the airport etc , etc, must be tested al least once a week if not daily, even if they do not have any symptom. Ie, lots of testing. So, how to draw conclusion??

@Spartan J

Conclusion: anti-viral drugs work.

Avigan works.

-10 ( +2 / -12 )

When zero?

I know this would notget alot of likes, but can we have full capacity for all sports events again? At least allow entry for the fully vaccinated, I would love to see full sports events ongoing again.

Avigan works.

I highly doubt that @Iron Lad

It's a cheaply made drug, unproven in the fight against Coronavirus. It's simply being supported by nationalists.
