Like the Roman Empire .. Give Circus and Bread to the mob ... mostly simplistic stupid people easy to manage in the way the Government wants, the Pandemic is out of control not because of the virus but because the host porting the virus are free to move everywhere without penalty or strict Law restrictions! Shibuya, Shinjuku and other major cities.

Keeping troops in Japan is of best Interest of US Government .. if they believe Japan should increase the share for the military cost of US troops in Japan they can decrease their force and Japan start getting more domestic military presence in Okinawa and other strategic bases.

Sexual activities can be done on the floor ... wild or rough without breaking the bead cardboards.
If condoms are souvenirs to bring back home stupidity says buy one in your home country! Amazing the lack of common sense in JP.

Right and wrong, vaccination is not a preventive measure for infection rather that to minimize hospitalization or death in all ages now with the Delta Variant around us. Government lack of actions to inform the population of exposure risks and how vaccines work slow down the pandemia end even more. Asking people to close restaurants over accelerating vaccine shots go against. Japan has resources and financial strength to control it but due to incompetency on politicians the light in the tunnel is far far to be seen.

The title of this article doesn't make any sense .. condom to climax? good sex is enough .. with or without the rubber. IOC said Alcohol ok but no condoms .. doesn't qualify for the final sex during the stay? Another contradiction, keep the condom away and bring back to the home country for the HIV awareness ... but No SEX please.

Really? No condoms means no Sex? or they will put GPS as well? not sure on the logic and rational on the decision. If this is due to COVID-19 then alcohol goes in the same way. Athletes are adults - well most of them but the safety and AIDS risks prevention are still important where usage of condoms is highly advised for good! People will have sex either way ...

They were looking for 5 stars hospitals with Qualified doctors and nurses to inoculate 100 millions of people ... it is like a dream with only few thousands per day .. another decade to lose in Reiwa ... after 3 Heisei lost decades in economy.

Japan postponed the 2020 Olympic Games to gain time and have better measures to cope with COVID-19 but after more than a year from one of the first cases and Japan being impacted around Feb last year nothing has changed due to slow incompetent Politicians decision making lack of leadership, and out of the box solution with massive vaccination program. They are still fighting on the venues / qualified people to handle the inoculation tasks with a very slow pace per day ... Lock down back and for and keep counting even if the Games are called off ..

Incompetent leaders and politician, low software development skills in Japan comes from more than 40 years back .. lastly lack of common sense will kill us all. Lost decade they said in the 90s .. 30 years passed and Heisei finished. The Covid-19 smart phone monitoring SW (COCOA) sponsored by the Ministry of Health was another disappointment. Surprise Surprise!

Working long hours and awareness on how the boss evaluate people sitting in front of the desk working long overtime hours is more valuable than being productive and help the organization to be profitable ... the lost decade in the 90s is now 30 years and keep going up.
China was far down from technology and other areas regardless their authoritarian methods (I do disagree) but showing more results! Japan can do much better if we can focus!
It is quality than quantity in the labor hours.

Sad for the olympians and athletes due to Japanese politician incompetence with multiple delays in the inoculation of covid-19 considering Japan was hosting the Tokyo Olympics games buying time for the 12 months postpone request raised on 2020. Multiple city lock downs (Tokyo, Nagoya, Fukuoka, Sapporo and the list goes on) with little effect and more tax stimulus (said not enough to cover the expenses) to be paid to the shops rather than implement a policy for introducing new process and technology for telework or prioritize vaccination of those key people who should be facing people due to the nature of the job.

China military is not the biggest threat rather than a diversion, it is the economy and technology overtake.
Due to the global Pandemic, we all focused on the lock down, crisis, money stimulus when China planned this for years .. Dollar printing, fake currency etc with them sending few ships around Taiwan and South China sea. Wake up! there are other items China is taking over that goes beyond the military. Western corporate invested Trillion of $ and big market aspiration feeding their Communist Government for the world supremacy on technology and economy (gold and resource in their reserve) ... they took us off guard from the back.

Japan, was one of the first country with COVID-19 cases on Feb 2020 with the Diamond Prince cruiser badly taken cared spreading the virus across the passengers, on 2021 vaccine rolls out got delayed due to ultra-conservative government and people approach to use with new vaccines as the country asked "voluntary best effort" shops/city lock down mostly partially. Once cases are reduces they lift and request for another quarantine as this supposed to buy time for a long solution and "sustainable" approach to leverage new normals for work and health service supply.
Instead of having hospitals to host COVID patients they should used schools or convention centers, stadium with tents inside ... where is the "self defense personnel?? no nurse, no qualified doctors but the government is not using at its best the trained military rather to pay taxes.
Olympic games is on its way with the Government incompetency reflected during the crisis, lack of ability to use science and technology (UVC 222nM under Ushio and Columbia U) that can make a difference rather than spend the money to deliver *Abemasks on 2020 ... sad reality (Japan hosts many novel prize scientists but bad administration of its resources).
