Make HCQ available.

It can treat this virus if a person has to stay at home, so this angst and fear can stop.

It is FDA approved, it is safe, cheap, good for all ages, it works.

Make medi-packs of it with Vit D, Zinc, available!

Has the cost of insulin spiked in Japan?

Imagine a drug you need to survive being made so expensive that you don't know how you can afford it?

It went from affordable, to breaking the bank, with one EO signature from Biden.

There is more to this story that what we're reading.

HCQ should be made available. It is cheap and effective.

Paired with Zinc, Vit D, taken early in the illness will help cut it down to size.

It works, it's cheap, make it available!

The fear has gone on for too long, it needs to end.

I was out on the street, on my bike.

When I saw wires swinging, I stopped and got off it, but I could not stand up.

I still have bad reactions to rumbling doors.

Posted in: Do you think a sense of crisis among the public over the coronavirus is waning as the pandemic persists? See in context

Last night a delivery guy delivered some food and told me with a heavy heart that his restaurant is closing the end of this month, due to the effects of this "pandemic."

Panic?

To watch people suffer as the result of their livelihoods being destroyed, is very sad.

I have never felt a sense of anything but disgust, with the loud, daily messages, the endless ambulance sirens, the masks that were used for cedar pollen allergies, now required to be worn for a virus.

Experimental vaccines, futile masks, control over our way of life, stolen, for what?

Safety?

Cheap, effective drugs that can treat covid-19, like HCQ, Ivermectin, along with Zinc and Azithromycin, are not prescribed.

But an experimental vaccine, that will not cure, remedy or prevent this virus, is.

The Olympics will go on.

And P.S.

There was no flu, this year...

Tokyo 2020 chief says gender equality efforts as important as virus containment

No, it really isn't.

But since you brought up equality...

Will men as "women" be allowed to compete against women?

Because that is the biggest threat to women in sports.

This guy is entitled to his opinion,

but I can't help but feel he has never been challenged.

He is so used to being enabled, what else can be expected?

It reminds me of the film "On Golden Pond".

A teenager is placed with an elderly couple, for the summer.

The old guy is boarish, and bossy, but the teenager calls him out on it,

and shows him some youthful points of view, which he has been closed off from.

Soon, they learn how to accept and work with each other, because they have to.

You've made a few good points.

Posted in: Suga announces new measures to stem virus surge, including penalties, review of medical system See in context

He said he put the seven prefectures in urban areas under the state of emergency to prevent infections from spilling over into smaller cities where medical systems are more vulnerable.

Go To Travel is on you.

You promoted it, if you want to assign blame for the results, do it with compensation.

In a bid to more effectively enforce virus measures, Suga has said he will seek a legal revision in parliament next week to allow authorities to penalize business owners who defy official requests for coronavirus measures, while legally providing compensation to those who comply. 

"Covid 19" let's "alter" the Constitution?

Say it ain't so!

Officials in Tokyo, facing a hospital bed crunch for coronavirus treatment, are considering turning three prefecture-run hospitals into centers for COVID-19 patients.

They built "temporary" housing for Olympic athletes, why not temporary hospitals

meant for covid 19 patients only?

About 30 cases of the new variant have been detected since late December. Another variant was also detected in four people arriving from Brazil this week.

More rabble-rousing. What was done with these infected people?

When first we heard this story, it was one person "found" with it, now, it's 20.

What measures are being taken an immigration/airports?

Posted in: Suga considers state of emergency in Tokyo, vicinity; says Japan will start vaccinations in late Feb See in context

Koike has expressed concern over the greater burden on medical institutions.

I call bs.

She had time and money to get temporary hospitals built, exclusively for covid-19.

Now ambulances drive and drive, who will take them?

This problem would not be here, if these politicians had given some thought and put a plan in place.

Yammering about Olympics sponsors and games.

Then, the "Go To" fiasco, spreading the "wealth" far and wide, lowering people's guards because why would it be unsafe if the govt. sponsors it?

Lax immigration entry follow up, etc.

Now, when numbers climb, where does the pain and sacrifice fall?

Workers and their businesses.

If you want to close people down, you better consider with the same amount of importance

as placed on the Olympics, putting some monetary support where it needs to go,

to the people you want to shut down.

This story is rabble-rousing, laying out tid-bits, with no follow up.

So, one woman has been "found" with a SA strain.

At the airport? If not, where?

Did she use public transport?

Is she the only one "found" with it?

Is she now in hospital in quarantine?

Japanese travel at will for business, are they more immune than holiday travelers?

Why does a 64 year old woman have to be on the street?

Was there no value in her life, no place for her?

No small thing she could've done to earn her keep?

The sum up of a life: ¥8.

Left to die on the street from a a blow to her head while she slept,

by some random loser.

This g'damned country is harsh.

Posted in: Cram school operator arrested for holding 6-year-old boy upside down, causing eye injury See in context

The day this farcity is exposed, is the day children can once again be children, and slimy

operators of cram schools, entrance exam manufacturers, and entry board committees, can get a real job that contributes to a healthy society.

The place where a child goes to school is not as important as how well they do

while attending. If that is not true, than a basic overhaul of the entire education system needs to happen. Constantly hearing about teen suicides, bullying and extreme pressure put on children,

and there is always the question, why? Right here. People like this dolt, acting as if he has the keys to the city, the right to abuse children, and parents who are too lazy or just complicit; let it all slide.

Make it end.

Make this system of "entrance" exams, end. Make school a place where children learn, make lasting friendships, and have less stress in their young lives worried about things they ought not to be concerned about. Make real learning a priority, not training to make trained seals. Take back dignity, take back self respect, and take back childrens right to be children.

Make it happen, Japan.

Posted in: Japan should brace for 'leaderless era' as U.S. turns inward, PM adviser says See in context

@Giant Haystacks,

No need for all the dramatics.

It's a simple thing.

The truth will out.

The Presidency will be filled by the lawfully election winner.

Suga and all the world leaders who prematurely congratulated Biden, have shown a fair bit of ignorance of America's Constitution, and gullibility in the media as the final word.

It isn't.

If there is one thing that Trump has showed us, it's this.

There are no journalists, only propagandists.

Refusing to concede, Trump blocks cooperation on transition

Says the gaslighting media,

The media declared Biden the winner, but it wasn't their call.

The American people want answers, the legitimacy of this election
