quote of the day

With the third round of vaccinations starting in December in the country, municipal officials in charge are concerned if the inoculations will go smoothly. Various information is circulating (over the booster shots), leading confusion to be created. The situation is regrettable.

Tottori Prefecture Gov Shinji Hirai, head of the National Governors' Association, calling on the Japanese government to show clear standards on the third round of vaccination against the coronavirus, including on the interval between the second and third shots, and a mix-and-match approach.

Excellent observation. I've been posting the very same element yet most people rather do the "eyes wide shut" approach...meaning - I see but won't tell.

Haiti has no vaccines and over 15000 people with covid.. Japan has lots of vaccinated folks and almost no covid. So no, your idea doesn’t hold water.

Err, as of today:

https://news.yahoo.co.jp/pages/20210122

99,546,489 (78.6%) people got at least a first shot, out of which 96,480,237 (76.2%) got two shots.

I would consider this a pretty good reason for the virus to (at least) slow down.

Now going back to the article, the problem is that the government's communication has been lackluster from the very beginning as well as their action often going in opposing / conflicting directions leading to nonsensical situations (giving incentives to people to GOTO and Olympics vs asking people at the same time to "refrain" in the midst of a pandemic).

It would be nice if the boyz in the J-gov would get a grip once and for all.

I think what you meant to say was "when there are no tests done, the virus seems to disappear?

I think what he meant to say was "when financially and politically motivated hospitals don't label every single death a Covid death, the virus seems to disappear"

Man you've got a lot of fingers.

Ignores Bangladesh. Got it.

https://www.worldometers.info/world-population/bangladesh-population/

Current Bangladesh population: 167,016,579

https://covid19.who.int/region/searo/country/bd

Current number of vaccinations: 86,243,011 or 43,121,505 persons fully vaccinated (i.e. vaccinated twice) which is 25.81% of the whole population which is clearly not enough to stop or hamper the virus' progression.

Here is also the ration of doctors to patients:

Bangladesh: 0.6

Japan: 2.4

USA: 2.6

etc

This could also lead to an underreporting of cases, me thinks.

Got it now?

What confusion? The possible results are between safety through complete vaccination and immediate death. Everything is possible and it’s just on you to make it anyhow biased to your personal preference or favor. That also includes that almost no one will reach either maximum of immediate death or complete safety through vaccinations, you’ll just highly probable only get something in between.
