The main reasons why Covid is not so fatal here is low obesity and less physical contact in day to day interactions compared to the West

So again you go to the obesity and again have absolutely Zero I will repeat that ZERO to back up anything you say other than you were out drinking and bars are full.

While I totally agree that it was a mistake to hold the Olympics, I think the overall numbers are indicative of just people in Japan ignoring what they should be doing which is staying inside.

Now think how the Japanese see this.

Government says stay home SOE.

Then has 100,000 people come here they on top through tens of thousands of Japanese volunteers and Olympic workers into the mix.

But still tell the local population to stay home.

With contradiction information and action like that, is it any wonder why they aren't taking the SOE seriously.

Wonder how many of these infections are the delta variant.

Well on July 2 the government experts said at that time Delta accounted for 30%.

So seeing it if far more contagious by this point we can estimate the vast majority of new cases are Delta

Ask yourself Why now 

Because the Delta variant got into Japan not long ago!

Are you really asking that question?

Long Covid is a term open to abuse by the fear mongers. 

You mean fear mongers like the CDC, John Hopkins, The Lancet, New England journal of medicine, The BJM, the Mayo clinic, The NHS UK, etc...

You mean these terrible places? (Sarcasm for those who didn't get it)

Well everyone we need to now listen to the great JT covid expert as apparently he knows far better and far more than the above mentioned institutions.

Deaths are low, yet you have to change the subject to something else to justify yourself, it’s tiresome.

You are something! What I am not sure.

But for a fact know very well I have been pointing out long Covid and the health issues for months and you and I have gone back and forth on the subject many times.

Suddenly you have memory loss!

To those going on about deaths being low.

I recommend reading these, I know you won't but it is worth a try.

Here are some highlights.

@girl_in_tokyo

Usually I don't agree with you but when was this 20 down votes.

Been here a long time and a certain person that keeps going on about going out drinking get the down voted.

Must have been something more.

Or just a bad luck day.

Anyway where were you on the beach volleyball thing could have used your help.

Delta variant is more contagious but there is no evidence it’s more deadly, possibly even less so than previous variants, the jury is still out on this one.

ok let's get this out of the way, Delta is not more deadly but also not less deadly ( though some newer data is starting to show a possible slightly higher death rate.

https://asm.org/Articles/2021/July/How-Dangerous-is-the-Delta-Variant-B-1-617-2

But this is important to note

Other reports link Delta to more serious symptoms, including hearing impairment, severe gastrointestinal issues and blood clots leading to tissue death and gangrene

So if only dying is what you worry about well great for you but permanent lung damage isn't fun trust me I have that from pneumonia as a young strong 20s.

But gangrene doesn't sound any better.

@audioboy77

And

@blahblah222

You are both right and wrong.

The Japanese government is not withholding millions of doses.

It is delivering them as needed to the prefectures as they require but remember two thing, they need to be kept frozen at -80C° and they need to be delivered equally.

Pfizer is not behind in its delivery.

The Japanese government planned in using a lot of AstraZeneca 90 million doses but has shelved that idea for now, so it asked Pfizer to deliver it's fall order early which Pfizer said it cannot do but did agree to deliver 1/3 of the Fall order during late July August and early September.

All of this was in previous articles l.

So don't go off making thing up either way.

@GenHXZ

No idea what you are going on about the PDF is included in the Article.

Look for yourself

3061 was the tests done for yesterday's 1,429 cases

Today's testing ( yesterday's tests) is 14,890 resulting in 2,848 cases.

We are Tuesday

Posted in: Tokyo reports record 2,848 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 7,629 See in context

What is more frightening is that in order to be tested one has to meet a considerable set of conditions.

Tokyo is highly restrictive on testing.

So for Tokyo to reach 14,890 tests yesterday that means there are that many who presented with enough symphony and verifiable possible close contact with covid.

That does not look good for the future.

Let's see she may require testing to be cut back down to 6,000 or so or the same thing she has been doing for months, stick her head in the sand and claim every is under control.

Sunday was 3061 tests so 93% positive rate? Is that believable?

No. You are getting the numbers mixed up.

3061 was the tests done for yesterday's 1,429 cases that was 46% rate.

Today's testing ( yesterday's tests) is 14,890 resulting in 2,848 cases.

Still an incredible 19% positive/infection rate.

@iradickle

They have had a choice to wear shorts since 2012!!

Have you read the rules? Obviously no.

Let me help

*The shorts must “be a close fit and the design is recommended to feature total length of 26-28cm (from waistband) and *26cm above the knee, 

Now the men.

*Male beach volleyballers are required to wear a tank top and shorts, with FIVB rules stating: “For all athletes the bottom of the shorts must be a minimum of *10 cm above the top of the knee cap.”

No Close fitting rule for the men and wow men can be only 10cm above the knee cap but women 26 cm.

Now again, logic for that difference?

Speaking only on beach volleyball, I have never seen a female playing volleyball on an actual beach and not wearing a bikini or one piece.

baggy bikini bottoms would suck playing in the sand.

Oh but the men's shirt are just fine?

Ok the let the women chose similar shorts as the men.

Incredible the excuses you guys come up with.

-2 ( +2 / -4 )

Posted in: Olympic broadcasters curb sexual images of female athletes See in context

Of all the comments here only 2 are from women and they support the right to choose.

All the comments against have been men giving any crazy excuse they can come up with and ever of the wall exaggeration they can find.

I mean seriously

The Olympics started in Greece!, back then the type of clothing was not optional. 

Using ancient Greece.

Women weren't even permitted on the location of the games and if they did the penalty was death.

But someone thought this was a good point to use.

I honestly lost respect for some here other well I expected as much.

@Yohan

And others perhaps you should look up the uniform rules.

Previously there were 4 options for the women but now the IOC and other governing bodies insist only on the bikini.

This part is very telling.

Male beach volleyballers are required to wear a tank top and shorts, with FIVB rules stating: “For all athletes the bottom of the shorts must be a minimum of 10 cm above the top of the knee cap.”

Short and tank top loose fitting is fine.

Now for the women

Women’s briefs “should be in accordance with the enclosed diagram, be a close fit and be cut on an upward angle towards the top of the leg”.

The one piece “must closely fit and the design must be with open back and

upper chest, respecting the space for the required inscriptions to be made”.

The knee-length pants must “be a close fit and the design is recommended to feature total length of 47 cm (from waistband) and 3 cm above the knee, and a waistband of 6-7 cm wide”.

The shorts must “be a close fit and the design is recommended to feature total length of 26-28cm (from waistband) and 26cm above the knee, and a waistband of 6-7 cm wide”.

These were the previous 4 choices

Notice anything different from the men?

Let me help close fit, must closely fit , be a close fit and be a close fit .

So let me guess this it to help them play better, right?

If you can't see a pattern here then it is because you don't want to.

Also, it wasn't that nice for one team to cover themselves up and NOT let any other female athletes know they were "starting a movement"

Again a little research (or better journalism) and people would know this has been going on long before this Olympics and most in the sport knew long in advance this team was going to do this.

It was no surprise.

@iradickle

I asked a good reason.

Under your reasoning then we could say why did ice hockey introduce helmets, presumably those playing or starting to play new the rules.

Under your reasoning the Athletes would should still be wearing the same style of sports clothing they wore when each event was added to the Olympics.

Which would really result in people being covered up.

Posted in: Olympic broadcasters curb sexual images of female athletes See in context

I wish people would do some checking before commenting.

Maybe these women would like to go back to Victorian times beach attire.

People who claim otherwise are stuck in the 1950s.

Just put everyone in a burquini, everone.

just a few of the comments made here without knowing anything.

These women are not asking for everyone to dress as they would like to but only to be given a choice.

These are also part of same group of players from multiple countries that protested in February the requirement to "cover up" when playing in Qatar during the oly6 qualifiers.

So they are not asking for everyone to cover up, all they are asking is to have a few choices.

And again can someone give a logical reason why they shouldn't be given choices?

Actually those going on about Japan should check out the similar reports/studies coming from the UK and USA.

In the UK what are being called "garden offices" essentially a glorified shed with aircon/hear and WiFi. Are in demand ( employees are paying for them) because like in Japan house especially in cities are small.

Separating home and office because difficult when your office is the kitchen table or bedroom.

As my friend in the UK said.

"Try having a zoom meeting when the children are home on summer break"

So he is now looking at buying a backyard shed/office meaning he pays and the family lose much of the already tiny yard space they had.

Working from home isn't for everyone and isn't practical either for everyone.

Before I had my present location my livingroom was my workshop and office.

It was like being at work 24/7.

Now the business is separate from home life ( or was until covid) when I leave the room I close the door behind me and I am home.

My wife doesn't have that luxury her "office" is our bedroom the computer, the printer, shredder, desk, etc.. forget a romantic night there isn't enough room other than to squeeze by and get in bed.

My daughter's work it all IT her tiny room has 7 different computers all somehow shoehorned into it and yes she needs all these different machines to run different OS etc .

So those that go on about how it is great, remember not everyone is doing the work you are and not everyone has the space needed and no their employers are not going to pay more for them to get a bigger residence.

I asked but got only negative votes not one had the courage to answer so I will ask again.

Give one GOOD reason why the women shouldn't have a choice of shorts and sports top?

I am waiting.

Posted in: Olympic broadcasters curb sexual images of female athletes See in context

There is nothing overtly sexual whatsoever about any of the olympic uniforms, women or men. People who claim otherwise are stuck in the 1950s.

On any beach in pretty much any nation you will find the average person dressed in far, far skimpier outfits than these.

Much ado about nothing, except in the eyes of prudes (probably religious, too).

Not a prude nor religious (atheist).

But it is a bit of a joke if you Think these must be the only choice.

Why, give a good reason why normal beach shorts and top aren't a choice!
