Although it would be difficult to do and would be a nightmare to be part of it. Japan needs to consider following other countries and do a complete lockdown for 1 month with borders completely shut. 1 month would allow anyone who currently has the virus to recover and stop the spread.

This hasn't happened anywhere else in the world, what makes you think it would work in Japan?

lol it's absolutely insane that there's people on here in July of 2021 still calling for a full lockdown or shutting down public transportation. The only thing that's going to bring the numbers down is ramping up vaccinations.

@Brian Wheway

"not only is it tranmited in tiny water droplets from the hoasts breath but it can be transmited by touch/contact, so its not only down to late night drinking, how about close contact and touching things on the train into work in the morning, and close contact through out the days work, like touching the fax machine, door handles, hanko stamps, staplers, phones, people shopping touching fruit and veg, the list goes on, its not just people going out drinking, its every one and that includes youths, adults, seniors,

So shopping? Not really that high-risk.'

yes it is, potentially anything that has been touched by an infected person can pass on the virus by touch, can you go shopping with out touching anything?"

Literally NONE of this is true. The CDC stated that the chance of catching COVID from surfaces is less than 1 in 10,000.

It's amazing that a year and a half into this pandemic, there's still this level of ignorance of basic facts about how the virus is spread.
