Posted in: VIPs allowed at Olympic opening ceremony, but no fans: report See in context

A super computer calculated that 10,000 fans would at worst lead to less than 10 new infections if 100 contagious people attended.

This isnt science it's politics.

31,500.000 vaccinated (17,000,000 2 shots)

https://news.yahoo.co.jp/pages/20210122

I'm confused. Every other country gives the %, to have a reference, for comparison.

That page doesn't. Any reason for that

120.000..000 population

So 25% one shot and 15% fully

Yes, it's less than other countries but moving in the right direction.

i m going to take a hard zag and say this is a good thing.

It's going to prove vaccinations work, i.e increased cases won't result in increased hospitalizations and will motivate more to be vaccinated.

This summer was always going to stuck, so may as well prove vaccinations work so when the next wave comes people will be more level headed.

Posted in: Australia battles several clusters in new pandemic phase See in context

Most countries have worked out this isnt ebola and with mass vaccinations its just another type of flu.

Australia and new Zealand still think that it's the plague.

Probably because most of the world has lived with it for over a year while they have been in hiding at the bottom of the world

Posted in: Is Japan's quickening vaccine drive in time for Olympics? See in context

By the end of the month 15,000,000 will be fully vaccinated. 15,000,000 will have had one vaccine.

By the end of july some 30,000,000 will be fully vaccinated and another 15,000,000 will have one vaccine.

This numbers are based on 1,000,000 vaccines a day, which is probably an under estimate.

Of course

If there was better organization another 10,000,000 could be vaccinated by now.

But it is going to take a few months for the hesitant to come around to being vaccinated, that the government cant do a lot about.

Things could certainly be better, the vaccination coupons should have been sent out in the spring or not all. However

almost every government is equally disorganized in their own way.

On the whole life in japan has been far better than most countries the past year and hopefully with a million plus vaccinations a day we should be coming to the end around the same time as everywhere else.

The virus effectively ends when everyone who wants a vaccine has had one.

After that if you refuse to be vaccinated and get corona that's on you.

People aren't going to keep wearing masks and accept s.o.e 's when the majority have been vaccinated.

I guarantee japan will have one of the highest vacation rates in the world by December, people don't want to be ostracized and in japan by the fall not being vaccinated is going to be a major shame.

What all the conspiracy theorists fail to understand is that cases numbers are a snapshot over an overall trend. If numbers are down it means there are less cases overall.

One japan has never sought a zero coronavirus policy thus it makes no sense to test hundreds of thousands a day you may disagree with that but it doesnt make it a conspiracy.

Second, at no point has there been a divide between increasing hospitalizations and increasing case numbers. If there was a conspiracy that wouldn't be the case.

If Tokyo reports 300 cases it probably means there are 3000 cases but seeing as we are all still hear debating numbers 18 months into this what difference does it make?

Vaccination is the only way to get back to normal now, not mass testing.

Stranger land,

no I am not American,

not sure what that has to do with anything, most of the world has figured out lockdowns are an impractical, expensive, deadly waste of time,

corona is here to stay, if eliminating corona is your strategy you’re going to be locking down until you all run out of money.

I am sure this lockdown is less popular than the last and no doubt the next will be even more so,

surel you don’t think this the last time you will be locked down

Grow up, come sit in on the soul crushing meetings millions of us attend everyday and then she'll realize someone asking about your backhand or favorite food for 30 minutes a day isn't so bad

she is paid to be an entertainer.

And interviews are a part of her job.

She needs fans, sponsors, tournaments in order to make 50 million usd.

If she wants to play tennis only go play at the local courts. She could make a comfortable living being a hitting partner.

Posted in: COVID vaccines to be available to all under 65 in Japan at same time See in context

AntiquesavingToday  10:42 am JST

Many elderly people don't want to/ can't travel to mass vaccination centers so unless they lower the age these centers won't run at full capacity.

The first part of the above makes little sense seeing Japan's elderly are those that regularly get flu vaccine every year and are the ones to be less hesitant to be vaccinated.

Well yahoo reported reservations weren't full at the mass vaccinations site in Tokyo and the elderly they interviewed said they either don't want to travel there or want to wait.

Secondly regarding vaccinations, I can only report my personal experience here in Hiroshima prefecture all medical workers I know have been vaccinated, care home workers too.

As I said at the beginning, a lot of time has been wasted but thankfully the situation is improving everyday.

@Antiquesaving

I have no idea where your elderly relatives live, but my parents in law have been vaccinated along with people I know who work in elderly care homes.

Some local governments are better than others

The reason why they are lowering the age is
