I get the meaning but think it is in poor taste. These poor young women were forced to train with their lives on the line. 

Yes and now those that are still around are elderly being neglected by the government again because of pride not willing to admit reality of the situation, not properly caring for them, not getting them vaccinated quickly and efficiently and steadfastly going head on to hold the Olympics even if it results more elderly dying.

Yes, I agree it's poor taste making comparisons to WW2.

Actually very appropriate.

The attitude to hold the Olympics come hell or high water by the government regardless of what the people want or what is in the best interest of the people the no cancellation/surender seems very similar.

Children in Japan up to 7 years old are not required and don't wear masks. 

Interesting! Not required yes but don't? Not where I live in Tokyo, I live near 2 daycares an 2 elementary schools and other than the very young nearly all are wearing masks. All the children in my neighbourhood as I watch them walk by from my workshop window are wearing masks.

I wonder which doesn't live in Japan virusrex or the person constantly using USA VAERS (incorrectly I might add)?

@neowave

Everything you posted has already been explained expertly by virusrex and others.

You have also been explained the real way VAERS works but chose to ignore the facts and misrepresente the information.

Now if you really want try looking up the increasing number of children now dying from covid-19.

Just in Canada there have been 3 in April a toddler, a 13 year old and a 16 year old, all from SA or UK variants which are now looking as they affect children more severely than the original virus.

@Jijitsu

Simple because the original is covid-19 New Corona virus.

No one is calling these Variants UK virus, South Africa virus or India virus. They are calling the covid UK, SA, India variants. Note the word variant.

And no one is running around north america attacking British, South Africans, etc.. but are doing that to east and south east Asians because of the politicizing and the use of what you wrote.

once again more misinformation by people that don't follow the science, vaccines do not prevent infected people from transmitting the virus to others.

And again more false information.

The vaccine reduces the viral load which by that simple fact, yes fact reduces the potential to spread the virus.

For those unable to understand think high vital load from unvaccinated as spraying some on with a fire hose.

Vaccinated with low viral load is like using a hand plant spray bottle.

Which one will reach others and get them properly wet?

Why not ox cart? Oh my lord we're doomed.

I guess not much history of ox carts in Japan, but possibly they may add jinrikisha, plenty available in asakusa with no work no tourists.

Who is Pfizer paying in order to get such quick approvals?

Please let Moderna, AZ and Novavax who they need to pay off to get quick approvals.

But Japan has the lowest death rate per capita amoung wealthy countries. No mention in the article. I wonder why?

Well if you don't test and then don't autopsy anyone over 65, then you get low numbers all around.

Tokyo Metro 35 million people.

Tokyo Metro daily average for testing under 7,000, average daily number of positive cases just under 900.

Compare that to Ontario Canada population 14 million, average daily testing 50+ thousands, average daily positive results 3,000.

So something does seem right, the percentage of positive in Tokyo would be the highest in the world.

The reality is if Tokyo tested 50,000 daily the number of positive results would likely be 3,000 and up and with that the Olympics would be toast.

I suppose the local union of jab dispensers gets a two-hour break to recuperate after every hour's work.

Actually the doctors are not the problem.

My friend is a doctor in our ward, he was requested to join the vaccination work, he accepted.

Since then all he has been told is to wait for the ward or whoever to call and tell him when to go start vaccinating.

He still hasn't heard back and he has called multiple times asking what is going on and all the replies have been the same "wait we will call you".

The system of booking is haphazard, with each city making things up as they go, some using online, App only, snail mail, phone and even fax, and not a combination of these just some or as some are reporting only one ( the town in Niigata where my wife's grandmother lives only offers phone appointment nothing else).

@Haaa Nemui

My children's 90+ years old grandparents were sent the forms by the ward to be vaccinated.

Then a week later they were sent another letter telling them that it was all cancelled and to wait for new instructions as to when and where.

Since then nothing.

They could have done some more work on ivermectin last year, which could have helped a fair bit...

Only if they ignored all the test results from Japan and the rest of the world that showed it was of no to very little use if anything.

I guess the thinking is if they have enough, the vaccine will enter the population by sheer volume or possibly osmosis?

because as it is now the government can't get the little they have into people's arms

@starpunk

I don't know if English is your native language but I think you miss understood my meaning/point!

I was basically saying as you are that people keep using "only" 10,000 as if 10,000 dead isn't important.

And like you I agree this is not the time or place to be having the Olympics this year.

Vaccines and testing before we can even begin to think about having Olympics

@Raw Beer

You keep making claims and keep say things like.

 Half of the world, population wise, treats Covid with HCQ. And BTW, they have a lower death rate than countries that prohibit/discourage HCQ use...

But always go back to Didier Raoult as your only source and he has been thoroughly disproven and discredited.

I was waiting for when you would bring up Didier Raoult as it was inevitable as you have no other source.

I think is ignorant of people to keep thinking that the government can actually hide or even want to hide these kind of numbers and exclude them from the official count.

It is quite simple to do as the government of Japan has already done.

Don't do testing, don't have autopsies on those over 65.

That way few people are confirmed to have covid and fewer confirmed to have died with covid.

By doing that there are no records to counter indicate the government's claims.

If that isn't enough Tokyo conducts fewer than 7,000 tests a day for a population of 10 million, Ontario Canada does 50 to 60 thousand a day for a population of 14 million.

At under 7,000 tested Tokyo has over 800 positive.

Posted in: Government advisor sparks anger with tweet laughing off calls for Olympic cancelation See in context

Conducting autopsies on those over 65, who have expired, in no way adds to preventing the spread of the virus. It may simply fulfill a morbid curiosity.

No it will however increase the death toll from the false 10,000 which is why it is not being done.

Simple question.

Why in Ontario Canada where they are in the middle of a Covid surge are they testing over 50,000 a day while Japan is testing fewer than 8,000 and they are both coming back with around 3,500 a day positive for covid?

Non one finds it odd that Japan testing is coming back nearly 50% positive?

The numbers just don't add up.

No, only by big pharma-funded studies (the only ones you are willing to consider) that were designed to fail.

that isn't true they were tested in multiple countries including Canada, where the hospital systems are Provincial government run and funded in affiliation with the universities that are also provincial owned and funded.

Canada has no domestic Vaccine development or production so it would have been in it's best interest of these drugs had worked, but province after province the studies came back the same.

These drugs not only don't work but cause more harm.

No when Quebec and the rest of Canada can agree on something you can be fairly sure the results are correct.

Make Ivermectin and HCQ available options, for those at home with this virus.

That it isn't, is a crime.

Actually it is!

Prescribing medication that has been proven to no work on a disease and has been been removed or counter indicated for a disease and is known to actually cause more harm is not only grounds for the doctor to be charged with malpractice but could also get them charge of a crime if injury or death occurred.

And both these drugs have not only been proven not effective but to cause more damage to those given them.

The guy in the Aussie outback ticks the solar roof option when he buys his car.

Any idea how big solar panels would have to be to charge an electric car?

Even if the entire roof of a van was fully covered with solar panels it would still take days or more to fully charge a EV vehicle's battery pack and only if the vehicle is full stationery and not running.

Now I am no electrical expert but have built solar power devices.

A typical EV vehicle's battery pack is 60Kwh

At 7Kwh it would take 8 hrs to fully charge.

A 2.4 metre by 1.4 metre one of the largest single panels ( and crazy expensive) does 670 Wh but more available is 500 Wh.

At 500Wh it would take appropriately 120 hours to charge a Nissan leaf.

One would need at least 10 500Wh panels each being around 2 metres by 1.3 metres to charge a Leaf in a day and only if a full sun is out.

@Pim

Yesterday's 59% cancel 38% not cancel was by the LDP loving Yomiuri Shimbun, which decided not to offer "postpone" as an option.

Their 59% was the lowest percentage on months, every other survey was over 70%.

So we can easily ignore their results.

Except Namibia, all the countries listed have fewer deaths per capita than Japan.

Yeah now tell us how advanced their reporting system is, how many are being tested.

Just to put it into context, Namibia has so little testing capabilities that in April 2021 USAID had to donate covid-19 laboratory testing equipment.

Again if the country is not testing because they can't or won't then the numbers are low, not because there isn't a lot of covid and death from covid but because no one is tested.

Its not the same as nuclear waste where they were just pushing off tough problems for future generations either, these are problems where they have already developed solutions

Really, what solutions have they found for rare earth minerals and their toxicity, the dangers to the environment, safety in recycling them?

Very few, lots of talk no real solutions but a lot of "we have ideas" and " we are looking into it".

The main problem is people can see the car exhaust and think pollution but they don't see it on a so-called zero emissions car and think "zero" great! In fact the massive amounts of rare earth causes massive emissions, on top of other serious problems. In much of the world including Japan, coal, oil, in producing the needed electrify.

But unseen and marketing using zero emissions give the impression that people like. Oh and let's not forget all the petroleum base products use in building those zero cars.

Tesla market capitalization today: 605 billion US$

Toyota market capitalization today: 216 billion US $

Tesla net income $721 million

Toyota net income $18 billion

Seems like Tesla's capitalisation may be a bit over stated or poorly managed.

Or is it that the market is just not ready for what Tesla is selling because the technology has far to many problems needing to be worked out and the infrastructure isn't available.

Again you build something then say " we will work out how to fix the downsides later" but buy it now!

Then wonder why people aren't going for it.

@rainyday

Again.

Do you think when the idea of the first car came up they said great it runs "we will figure out how to stop it later"? No before they produced the first car they figured out how to steer and stop it.

Most things work that way.

When it doesn't that is when there are problems.

They didn't build the Shinkansen system before figuring out how to stabilise it from flipping over in the event of and earthquake and derailment or how to stop the vibration from causing the rails to loosen.

No they had to figure out all the possible problems and technology before going ahead.

The old expression of putting the cart before the horse should ring a few bells.

There seems to be this silly belief that car companies are so stuck to ICE vehicle that they don't want to change.

These are businesses those running them understand that the first one to come up with a practical and viable environmentally better solution to ICE will make billions.

The fact none has should make it quite obvious at this point none has actually found a truly viable alternative.

We keep hearing about Tesla but even they cannot deliver much of what they promised because the technology and resources/need materials in the quality needed are just not available.

I get this type of thing all the time, people that do not understand what the work of do consists of and want their orders done faster than is possible not because I don't want to but because the methods use the material used and it is just not possible due to technology, physics and chemistry.

Would I like it to take a week instead of 2 to 3 months? You bet I would but unless someone figures out how to change the laws of physics and chemical reactions that is not likely going to happen.

My sister has a degree in environmental studies, not technology and trying to explain to her that what she wants and what is technically, laws of physics, and chemistry is like talking to a brick she doesn't get it understand it and just keeps repeating someone should be working on changing things.

You like others that think now is the time to go all electric make a lot of assumptions that somehow solutions will be found by the time things are needed.

It usually doesn't work that way.

History has plenty of examples the best is nuclear power, it was assumed that eventually a solution from nuclear waste would be found but here we are decades later and the only "solution" is still to bury it in underground storage!

Cool stuff. In other words, your car has a plug that hangs out the front and you stick it into a socket in the winter, yes?

Yes if you had a parking space with access!

Do/did you think that plug was charging the battery?

No it is an engine heater.

A cold dead battery can only start a car if recharged by a charger, or the car being started by another battery via boosting.

Search and rescue from Northern Quebec into Nunavut, we had to maintain our own vehicles from Snowmobiles, ATV to boats. ( Flying mechanical left to the real experts).

I will be interested to see how they replace ATV and Snowmobiles with electric and how the people of the north will be expected to charge then out on the ice and Tundra.

You've never lived in Canada, have you?

Born and raised in Canada, also did my own mechanical work on my cars.

Obviously you never did any work on a car.

Did you actually think you were plugin in the car battery at night in winter?

No you plug in a block heater ( look it up).

The rest of what you wrote makes about as much sense as thinking you were plugging in your car battery and not a block heater!

Just to help those that did not growup in Canada.

A block heater consists of 2 types, one cheaper simpler type is a heating element inserted that keeps the oil warm, the other circulates and heats the engine coolant.

This makes it easier to start the car on very cold days.

No one keeps their battery on a charger no one plugs in their battery as a plug is 120 Volts AC and a battery is 12 volts DC you need a charger.

And when a battery gets to low because of the cold people use another car or battery with booster cables and jump start their cars.

Any real Canadian should know these Facts.

Only about 15% of Canadians use public transport daily ( stats Canada)

Only about 30% have viable access ( again stats Canada) viable means practical for everyday use and accessibility. In other words the long commuter train that then require a car to get home from the station is not seen a viable daily public transportation.

It is this disconnect from how non central city people live and think that is the problem.

You look at Japan and say great public transportation, but there are only one or 2 buses an hour near my wife's family town in Niigata and they end very early thus why every family have multiple cars. Heavy snowfall is normal, etc...and that is nothing compared to living in Hokkaido.
