. I am self-isolating and only going out to pay bills and I do my food shopping late at night when family shopping is done.

Didn't you get vaccinated????

Why then would you need to live like a hermit?

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,

The same media who fed the hysteria that led to games being played in empty stadiums even though baseball and soccer have been played with fans.

Posted in: South Australia locks down after 5 virus cases detected; 14 mil nationwide under lockdown See in context

If a two week lockdown meant a year corona free then it might make sense.

But Victoria has almost been locked down as long as it has been virus free.

Factor in mental health, lost schooling, economic costs and general happiness and it makes no sense whatsoever.

A month ago you were saying 60,000,000 would be impossible by july 20 as the government promised. Well it's july 19th and already they are 10,000,000 over that.

And yes the uk is higher but I would rather it takes longer and we all get pfizer or modena, protection is much higher.

So are you suggesting we need to live with coronavirus?

Like most people are doing now in Japan? I.e vacations, mask wearing but otherwise carrying on daily life? Because your constant posts about long term corona don't indicate this.
