Posted in: New Zealand’s largest city to remain locked down See in context

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

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

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?

If you lived here you would know there are many places you can.

Ill take having to work a little to find a bar over repeated lockdowns

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 .

Makes sense.

Almost every country is now doing the same.

Either you only know one developed country (Japan) or you only know underdeveloped countries.

This is not what has been done in Canada, the UK, or the EU.

What are you talking about? Most people in the us, uk, eu are told to recover at home.

The people have spoken, this is democracy.

It was always going to end this way. The public should be applauded for waiting until the elderly have been vaccinated before letting numbers get this high.

There are ways to call these kind of people, that take advantage of most other people being responsible in order to enjoy something themselves.

As a man of science, I sure you would call these people level headed. Sitting outside in the sun the chance of infection is almost zero.

Posted in: Tokyo governor urges young people to get vaccinated to slow virus surge See in context

It's a hassle but I recommend calling around clinics(many cities provided a list when they sent out the coupons) instead of waiting for an opening at a mass vaccination center. There are bookings available but you have to be willing to call a lot of clinics first. Unfortunately the system is still analog.

And get on a cancellation waiting list if you can, that's how I already got my first shot.

Wasn't this the plan all along?

Vaccinate the elderly early to keep deaths low, then not worry too much about daily numbers. With 80.000.000 millions given out and at 1.200.000 million a day this is only going to continue for another couple of months.

The majorty of people don't want to stay home and s.o.e no longer have any meaning so either accept the next two/three months numbers are going to increase and do whatever measures you see fit, (once your vaccinated you don't have to worry) or stay home for until the fall. No point complaining everyday. Of the 150 posts not one gives an alternative solution.

Mr. Hakman:

"There was a grand total of four COVID deaths in Japan today. 


I wonder what you would say if one of them was your mum, or son. God forbid it was YOU

You do know people die? We don't live forever?

Delta is not more deadly than other variants

This is definitely wrong prooven by scientists! It is 5 times more infectable then type A.

Increased rate of infection doesn't mean its more deadly. Generally the more easily a virus spreads the less deadly it becomes.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 1,128 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 3,574 See in context

Like it or not most people have given up caring. That may be because they are vaccinated, it might be because they have very little chance of dying or it may be because corona is never going to disappear.

Either way most people are out and about this week(the vast majority wearing masks)

Whatever the number of infections and government requests, the number of people carrying on daily life is only going to increase. In a few months mask wearing is going to decrease too.

Downvote, talk about long term corona all you want but public sentiment is clearly changing,
