Japan is having an uptick in covid cases because people are not following the 3Cs closely enough. By comparison, China is having lower infection rates due to its elimination strategy.

By comparison, China is having lower infection rates due to its elimination strategy.

Other countries have an even lower infection rate than China without using the zero covid strategy, but more importantly other countries have much better balance of cost and benefits. This means that not only COVID deaths can be prevented, also those deaths that are product of disruption of the health services and destruction of the economy. Cases by themselves are not the most important parameter to judge the control of the pandemic, if cases never become patients, don't complicate or die then the control can validly be called adequate.

It is also important to see how the zero covid policy have resulted in complete disasters like in Shanghai and Hong Kong, this means the complete loss of control can be repeated in the future, like it may be happening in Beijing.

Wrong.

It is also important to see how the zero covid policy have resulted in complete disasters like in Shanghai

If Shanghai is a complete disaster then Tokyo is a total catastrophe since Shanghai has a lower infection rate.

Any medical professional would know that so one should be consulted before making completely wild allegations based on emotion.

As always, you could easily prove me wrong by presenting any institution of science that defend your personal beliefs and contradicts the facts, but again as always you bring exactly zero.

It’s pretty obvious the situation in Tokyo is Much better than Shanghai, unless you consider being locked in your room and losing your job a better option

Wise move.

The whole of Japan is more or less open. Let the games go on, same as being on a Tokyo subway train during rush hour, only difference the train has a lack of fresh air
