Posted in: Sydney readies for 'freedom day' after long virus lockdown See in context

It is interesting how Australian Covid science is scrapping the requirement to wear masks indoors at workplaces. This will no longer be compulsory with the opening up. Australians so hate the masks. Sydney refused to mandate use of masks at all until months after their usefulness as an anti Covid measure had been acknowledged world wide. And now again one of the first requirements they remove whilst still keeping their absurd ridiculous random numbers of people limits for different situations. Some experts in Australia recently recommended children in schools should wear masks but this is unlikely to be adopted by the powers to be.

Meanwhile in Japan, no drastic lockdowns and Monty Python number of people limits for every situation but almost everyone wearing masks in every situation without it even being mandated ( without need for huge fines like Australia) and people still doing so.

What insanity

Same thing happening in Australia even within the country with thousands of people in different states locked out of returning to their homes in other states. Some are camped out in tents on the borders! And the leaders say it is all about the science and the masses, cowering in their homes in utter fear created by those same political masters, applaud this going on.

Posted in: Australian state leader quits over corruption investigation See in context

This was inevitable. The evidence of her corrupt behavior has been out there for a while and really it is clear that she is guilty, but she has avoided and denied hoping it would blow over but unfortunately it has not and she now blames the people investigating her rather than her own corrupt behavior which is the cause of it all ( and she knows this which is why she resigned). She has been a good leader but it does not make up for corruption and her continued lying and evasion about this. Meanwhile in the federal government there is no corruption commission and the current government is guilty of far worse corruption with its Sports and Car Parks rorts but they refuse to allow such a commission to be established so they are able to get away probably forever.

Posted in: Japan to fully lift state of emergency measures this week See in context

Amazing the drop in cases in Japan with just its gentle SOE whilst another country with maybe 1/5 the population in total very very restrictive lockdown in some parts has MORE cases than Japan and its two major cities more cases than Tokyo and Osaka combined! Time to relax the SOE in Japan and for investigation into how things are working in Japan. maybe that other country could learn something,

Posted in: Melbourne shuts construction sites after violent anti-vax protest See in context

P smith where is the evidence they are infiltrators. The word of Setka???? You are aware who this person is and his record of being an upstanding honest citizen NOT. Recently in court for wife bashing.

reporters on the ground are reporting the majority of protestors are the workers demonstrating for their right - traditionally left wing and supporters of the current left wing government that till now has left them unscathed to the virus whilst locking everyone else down in the city. But the spread of virus from these workers go too much so the government finally turned on them

Are these guys right wing infiltrators ?

The one who's showing power-drunk fascist tendencies is Setka himself. Setka, ACTU boss Sally McManus and others were trying to pin the protests on "far-right extremists and anti-vaxxers," but the evidence on the street shows that this isn't the case. They just can't tolerate the fact that their own members are turning on them, and rightfully so. Never mind that it's been the unions, who own Andrews anyway, who finagled a deal to allow the construction industry to continue operating while Victoria's been in lockdown.

Thank you prionking. Your comments are spot on. Everyone should read them and understand what is going on there in Melbourne

Omi is not the brightest light out there on being up to date with COVID research. Last nights NHK news had him finally recognizing that COVID spreads via aerosol micro droplets as if this was world breaking revelation from him. Well maybe in Japan but I think most experts world wide have realized this for over a year now. Not long ago he was advocating greater government powers to enforce strict lockdowns. Dangerous guy! Lucky the government mostly ignore him although the news gives him a mouthpiece.

Posted in: Japan to extend state of emergency again; set road map to lift curbs See in context

Currently, people have been asked to refrain from traveling across prefectural borders, but such trips are possible if people have completed their vaccine regimen or can show proof of a negative COVID-19 test, the sources with knowledge of the plan said.

Huh!!!

is this correct? Is this talking about Japan? You have to show proof of a negative COVID test to do cross prefectural borders? To who ? Do they have police at the prefectural borders? ( Last timeI drove across one there weren’t any) What about on the trains as they cross the prefectural borders? (And how can you even get a COVID test anyhow). Are they really asking to see a negative covid test result before one flies anywhere domestically in Japan?

If all this is the plan for the future it does not sound good to me. We do not need the Australian model here.

Posted in: Tokyo coronavirus cases fall to 968; nationwide tally 8,234 See in context

Sydney Australia MORE cases than Tokyo today had 1281 cases in its 11th week of harsh lockdown that includes curfews in some areas and limits on leaving your home and how far you can go when you are briefly allowed out. Harsh fines if you are found breaking the numerous rules. Travel within the country is banned even for people to see dying relatives and thousands of Australians are overseas unable to return to their own country. Yet Cases still going up up up, whilst Tokyo is going down down down. Lockdowns really work don’t they! Is there any better proof than Tokyo that they are unnecessary and that the Australian totalitarian approach is an unnecessary overreach.

UK current thinking about the virus is about to change from epidemic to Endemic and one part of this is less testing. https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/delta-coronavirus-government-liberal-democrat-b950068.html

And it's official the vaccines do not stop the virus spreading. The world is going to have to live with it

And it is is not only UK, Germany to stop free mass testing. The Japanese low testing regime is vindicated, (but I don't really think it was because Japan understood the virus better,) just some sort of luck like the relativevlow death numbers

Meanwhile Sydney after how many weeks strict lockdown, covid cases keep going up, and deaths too. Today over half the number of positive as Tokyo! Not long now till Sydney may have more cases then Tokyo.

No better proof to these latest findings from the UK than what is happening in Australia in contrast to Japan.

Posted in: Foot traffic still high despite state of emergency See in context

Japanese government begs people to stay home ( but no rules) with rising record covid numbers ( despite minimal testing) with hospital covid allocated beds full and people are dying at home (18 in Tokyo since July) as cannot get in to hospital, but except for some bars and restaurants being closed early, nothing is really done. Disneyland open , cinemas open, department stores open, gyms open, shopping centers open. playgrounds and parks open . workplaces open still expecting staff to come to work, International Olympics happening, other sporting events ( with spectators) going on, , Fuji Music Festival, happening, schools opening soon after summer vacation ( in which many people travelled all over the country) followed by universities next month

And then the government expresses incredulity as to why foot traffic not reducing, and of course blames people for the new cases and not listening!

Minimising the number of tests is the foolproof method of reducing official Covid case numbers. You do not have to be a genius to understand this. Furthermore no one cannot even be accused of cheating the numbers because the official numbers are what they are based on the tests that were done. I mean we see this every week after week with the reduced tests on weekends. It is impossible that less cases every weekend and then going back up has any semblance or reality to real case numbers. And now with the paralympics starting government is happy to keep tests lower ( thus cases lower) for the sake of the games. Maybe after they will do a few more tests but then it will be close to election time and they wouldn't want very large test numbers ( thus higher cases) tarnishing their miraculous achievement of beating the virus with their SOE and Quasi SOE's

There is no better way to keep official numbers low than reducing test numbers every week and keeping tests low. Some people say numbers will go up to 10,000 or more, but this will be simply prevented when testing numbers are kept so low.

Really only one! I hope they don't hide the things like the Lambda case last time.

"NHK reports that the Ministry of Health failed to conduct an investigation into those in close contact with the first Lambda variant carrier in Japan and they also failed to inform the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee."

The Olympics may end up the super spreading event after all from the Lambda variant they have let into Japan.

Success of the lockdowns in Sydney. About the same number of official cases as Tokyo, but of course with 10 times the number of tests. However also about the same number of deaths.

Read what you want in this on the success of strict lockdowns and bulk testing. Just saying. Tokyo might get a lot worse but Sydney doesn’t look like it’s getting better better either.

Japanese government or consular staff should have watched the TV series Homeland a few years ago which had parts set in Afghanistan. They can find it with subtitles even on Netflix. Then they would know things like the Afghani politician who created a totally fake military unit, that did not exist, that got huge amounts of money and equipment that just went into his own pockets were perfectly true. And thus could have predicted this quick take-over and evacuated their staff more timely.

Wakarimasen

Lock it down. It has clearly worked in Australia etc

Really! Sydney about the same number of cases as Tokyo and similar death rate.!

Melbourne now in yet another total lockdown and things just getting worse day by day.

Lockdowns do work for the government to take total control of people's freedoms and have the police and army flex their control. And bring in lots of income to the government from the huge fines for the still numerous people, that resist the totalitarian rules.

Someone in the US government should have watched the TV series Homeland a few years ago which had parts set in Afghanistan. Obviously it was not totally fiction as current events prove. Like the afghani politician who created a totally fictitious military unit, that did not exist, that got huge amounts of money and equipment that just went into his own pockets. How much money does the fleeing Afghani president have in his personal bank account one can imagine. More than enough to finance a nice retirement in Switzerland or wherever I am sure.

Sydney with a population of 8 million whatever does more tests than all of Japan and finds 400 plus cases, (still rising even with their extreme lockdown that ramped up the army on the streets today to enforce it). BUT they are also still getting rising daily deaths, currently in the single digits, which interestingly are about the same as Tokyo, with its make believe unenforced SOE, which also only finds 400 plus cases but from a fraction the number of tests. Read from that what you want about the success of total lockdowns and mass testing.
