Have they checked the water tank on the roof?

I would try to escape APA Hotel as well. I hope the guy didn't fall.

We don't know the full details of the case, but seems hard to prove that this was intentional? Manslaughter would be more appropriate wouldn't it?

@laguna chips in dogs use RFID, used to identify strays when found, they don't transmit location data.

Apple Watches with cellular would fix this problem. My first thought was airtags and tiles but I think they wouldn't work well in rural Japan.

Well I'm perfectly happy to get AstraZeneca vaccine.
-2 ( +1 / -3 )
Why halt applications? Just add applications to a queue ffs. Isn't it more efficient to have companies pre-registered for when more vaccines become available?

Empty promises. How are they going to get chips for their cars? The worldwide chip shortage is here for the medium long term.

Good luck making your $3 billion back. Does anyone remember the companies that sponsored the last olympics? I can't even remember which city hosted the 2016 Olympics. So irrelevant.

So they will be stuck with mountains of useless stock because they gambled on the Olympics. Sad day for you.
That junk was destined for the landfill anyway.

Do those fans in the room mean, no AC? Or are they just a bonus?
Haha I had the same though. Also I’m hoping those are magic fans that don’t spread the virus.
I’m pretty sure I read last year that Nitori is supplying the furniture. Anyone correct me if I’m wrong.

I wonder what the tender process involved in the purchase of those wonderful beds.

TBH at this stage... I don't know if imported cases matter or not. The Indian variant is already spreading in Japan so it's too late really. We just have to keep vaccinating. That's the only way out.

Yea, so they can make ad revenue. I won't be watching.

Time to involve 7-11, Lawson, et al. Make vaccination locations convenient. Those companies understand JIT logistics. Train staff to administer shots... and keep paramedics on call in the area in case of rare side effects.

These vaccination sites will need to stay open. What the hell are they doing?

This makes me angry... but when I think about it... this is less than 0.05% wasted.

This is nothing about safety... just more of China's wolf warrior diplomacy.

Time to involve convenience stores.
Convenies are usually close together so they could post a paramedic near clusters of stores. Start training civilians to give shots. Japan could be fully vaccinated in a 100 days.

AZ should be used on the +65 group.

@Strangerland I can go back to NZ to get vaccinated... but I'm not keen to go through their MIQ system. I'd rather just pay our local hospital.

I would pay to get vaccinated sooner. There should be an auction system in Japan.

Actually if they use AstraZeneca vaccine then 3 months would be do-able target.
1) Logistically it would be easier for elderly to get a 1 shot vaccine.
2) Elderly are not likely to develop the rare blood clotting side effect... since only a slight elevated risk in women aged 50 and younger.

I don't get the math... The centres will be open for 3 months, to inoculate 900,000 residents in Tokyo, 450,000 in Osaka... They need to double the capacity to achieve that.
900,000 residents require 1.8 million doses / 10,000 per day = 180 days is about 6 months.
450,000 residents require 0.9 million doses / 5,000 per day = 180 days...
And this is only about 10% of the elderly populations in those centres. Make no sense.

The slow ramp-up is super annoying... but once more of these sites are up I am confident things will get better quickly.
What I don't understand is... why complicate things by involving municipalities? The government should run all vaccination sites using SDF staff. They need to streamline the roll out ASAP.
10 ( +11 / -1 )
A little advertised fact about the initial vaccination drive to vaccinate medical workers was that it included SDF staff... why not use the already vaccinated staff at these sites?
