Had 2 Vaccinations, in no rust to get a 3rd.

For me the calculation is simple,

99% chance I'll be sick for 24-48 hours after vaccination


50/50 chance I'll notice if I catch corona.

Treat a runny nose as the plague and this is what happens.

Millions of healthy people stuck at home, a flailing economy and a docile society of mask wearing fools scared of a sore throat.

The higher the number of positives the more apparent the stupidity of it all becomes.

I agree the media panic machine is in overdrive on this but I also fear the Japanese authorities will totally overreact and shut the borders down at the drop of a hat. I’m a permanent resident and am supposed to return to Canada over the holidays for a fairly urgent family matter. Have no idea what to do.

I have just left japan due to a family emergency. I was told both by the Ministry and at the airport as long as you leave before any ban starts you are free to return.

So people can now drink in the park but cant go to restaurants.

Sounds like japan until last week.

When it was japan the government were all idiots when it arden it's visionary.

Compare the number of deaths, death rate and total COVID cases though

Shimane prefecture (660,000) has had 4 deaths so per million its lower than nz.

More than anything population density is the biggest factor

Currently rewatching all the movies on Amazon.

1~5 still holds up

Diamonds are Forever is the worst

Roger Moore half comedy half action.

Brosnan definitely underrated.

Daniel Craig by far the best action bond.(all movies are 15 minutes too long.

25,000 applied for 3,000 quarantine rooms today. All were gone within the hour.

People can't go home ,leave , visit dying relatives , take up jobs etc etc.

New Zealand talks about " being kind" etc but is a brutally uncaring government

Posted in: Tokyo coronavirus cases fall to 968; nationwide tally 8,234 See in context

Corona has been widespread in Japan for 18 months, whereas Australia has tried elimination. It stands to reason due to naturally gained immunity Japan would eventually have lower numbers.

Hopefully Corona is turning into the flu

Posted in: Tokyo reports 1,915 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 13,638 See in context

Are we supposed to believe that people in Tokyo are more resistant to COVID, and that's why they alone need to have multiple symptoms to warrant free testing? Are we supposed to understand that people in Tokyo are somehow "more robust" than citizens in other parts of the country, 

Corona has been more widespread in Tokyo than the rest of the country so it’s very likely many Tokyoites have started building natural immunity quicker than the rest of the country.

Read up on New Zealand’s managed isolation facilities and then tell me Nz is doing a good job.

New Zealand citizens overseas are basically locked out and locked in their own country. And the 25% of New Zealand’s with relatives overseas are in most cases unable to visit family or be visited by family even if they die or are dying as Miq spots are harder to get than tickets to Willy wonkers chocolate factory.

Some shocking news that shows how hospitals are currently saturated...

COVID-19 patient forced to give birth at home, baby dies

No, it doesn't

it shows how hospitals put profits above lifes

it shows how irrational people have become that a babies life is less important than the risk of infection

And yet residents in Japan can't drink in bars after 8:00pm. You call that freedom?

my understanding is if your vaccinated you have a much lower chance of catching the virus,

thus vaccinations will reduce cases dramatically but not eliminate corona.

It is certainty there will be corona in melbourne next year and for ever after .
