Amazing how Japan has dodged the bullet so far.

Yeah, because the mask thing didn't really kick off hardcore until the end of March last year.

Not so sure about "dodging a bullet". Compared to the disasters of the Americas and Europe - definitely. But Japan has a higher death rate than many regional neighbors, such as Thailand, Vietnam, Aus, NZ, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong. Many with higher population densities.

And heaven knows what this olympics and the movement of people everywhere is going to do to the numbers over the next couple of months. Hopefully vax will be ramped up again after dropping off recently. More supplies needed.

I want to know how the nightmare scenario that the writer paints in this article matches with the fact that in CCP China, the virus is officially defeated, and the pandemic is over.

So does this virus respect borders? Or are we looking at a media narrative?

Check the photos in the article about the detention center in China. Certainly doesn’t look like they’ve defeated the virus.

You believe the CCP? My suggestion is to start by not doing that, then ask your questions.

There is no soaring death rate in Japan. Quite the contrary.

So you are suggesting that CCP China has a gigantic Corona virus problem? In that case, why do our reliable and trustworthy media not report that?

I don't believe them so I reject their denial of Covid originating and escaping from a lab in Wuhan as Trump tried to tell people.

But happy that we agree on that point.

Report what? We have no idea what's happening in China, because the CCP controls the flow of information. No one knows if they have a huge coronavirus problem, nor whether they have mostly eliminated it, because there isn't any reliable information coming out of China to be able to accurately determine what it is.

But you seem to want the media to make something up and report it. Like that makes sense.

I don't believe them so I reject their denial of Covid originating and escaping from a lab in Wuhan as Trump tried to tell people.

I reject their denial as well. But anyone who thinks that's a basis for laying guilt on them isn't keeping up with the smart kids in class. At this point in time, we don't have enough information to know whether it was released from the lab (either by accident or on purpose), arose naturally, or was released near the lab by a third party as a false flag operation to either place blame on China for a pandemic, or maybe just to kill of a bunch of Chinese people and cause troubles to China, not realizing it would escape world-wide.

Anyone outside China making ANY conclusion right now as to where the virus came from, isn't smart enough to realize that by jumping to a conclusion, instead of looking tough, like they want, they instead look stupid, like they don't realize.

Wow. This is a head-scratcher.

Right. Trump is always right. Why can’t the libs see that?!
