Hopefully he will be one of the lucky 99.9% who survive this devastating disease

Hopefully he's fully vaxxed, thereby significantly increasing his odds of that.

He should have worn a mask.....

0.1% death rate? Assuming everyone in Japan will catch it sooner or later, that would be roughly 130 thousand deaths. Only about 48 thousand deaths officially reported so far, so still a bit to go then...

Yeah, the vaxx have definitely brought the rate of death down significantly, as have many of the other treatments science has discovered.

He is a overweight but not much, his risk of death is around 1 in a thousand. The majority are nit taking the latest vaccine, in Japan only 8% so far.

Mist people, will have had multiple infections by now, the death ages were exaggerated from the start.

That's an EXTREMELY high death rate. Scary!

The majority are nit taking the latest vaccine, in Japan only 8% so far.

I'm pretty skeptical of that number, but I'll let it pass due to it's complete irrelevance to the topic of the health of the PM of Cambodia.

I heard that people don't really care about this anymore.

No need to be sceptical, my data is always based on fact

The vast majority no longer have faith in the leaky vaccines

As I said I'll let it pass due to it's complete irrelevance to the topic of the health of the PM of Cambodia.

But feel free to bring that link up when it's actually relevant, and I may deign to look at it.

Why is important to bring that to the news here that the Cambodian PM is tested positiv?

If me, my friends or my coworkers are tested positive, it doesnt' t find its way to the news.

Does a PM have a different body to care of than we do?

For most people the reduction of risk from each subsequent booster is reduced, that is not because the vaccines are not effective, on the contrary it is because they are effective enough so the reduction of the risk is very important even with a partial schedule.

As usual, the fallacy of appeal to popularity does absolutely nothing to prove something is not effective, even if 99% of the people have lousy diet that does not make it less unhealthy. For this purpose you would need scientific evidence.

Mist people, will have had multiple infections by now, the death ages were exaggerated from the start.

Any evidence of this being a significant number of the deaths? This argument also obviously is not considering the other risks to the health infections (at least symptomatic) bring, dying during the acute infection is not the only negative outcome from covid.

Because he just hosted a summit attended by many world leaders. This could have wide-ranging effects.

Has anyone mentioned to you that we're in a pandemic?

Has anyone mentioned to you that we're in a pandemic?

Maybe in China and Japan but the rest of the world is moving on. Covid is not going away and should be treated just like any other flu virus.

It would be sensible for him to refrain from his duties and the possibility of infecting others no matter what flu virus he had caught.

Has anyone mentioned to you that we're in a pandemic?

many, many vaxxed world leaders have caught it. The ex-Khmer Rouge leader is just another one.

This could have wide-ranging effects.

Like what?

Do you have any example?

Do you have any example?

Yes.

Intelligent people already understand though.

The man is a despot, so Cambodia wouldn't be losing too much if Covid claimed another victim.

Intelligent people already understand though.

It seems that you do not belong to these group of people, because otherwise you could show an example.

But honestly speaking, I didn't expect that.

Turns out none of the others worked either.

Lucky there aren't holding this in China. Would be in lockdown. They really should have done elbow bumps. Think of poor Pooh Bear. He might have a tough time getting back home.

Japan is the model. It's arguably the maskiest country in the world ... and it's had seven clearly-seen COVID waves, leading the world in COVID cases for a few weeks in a row during the most recent wave.

Since masks have demonstrated efficacy this means you could only imagine the numbers if mask use was not so widespread.

And the Japanese government continues to tell us that masks are an effective way to stop the spread of the COVID, while simultaneously telling us that an eighth wave is imminent and may be the biggest one yet.

There is nothing wrong with saying things that have scientific evidence to back them up, that is the whole point of getting that evidence in the first place.

Anyone who doesn't see the utter contradiction there just doesn't want to see it.

There is no contradiction, no measure has ever been guaranteed to work 100% of the time, and this is the first time that Japan is going to have an omicron variant as the prevalent one, winter season and a big relaxation of the measures to prevent transmission, there is nothing contradictory in thinking these factors elevate the risk of infection for the population, specially when re-infections are becoming more and more common.

That was super inconvenient when they begrudgingly announced the vaccine neither prevents infection nor transmission, wasn’t it?

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

The vaccine prevents deaths.
