Out of interest, if you live in Japan, have had covid symptoms for over a year.

And this is a website well known amongst English speakers in Japan

Why haven't you posted before?

@zoroto/ fuzzy

Thank you always for your friendly comments.

I am neither posing as a doctor nor expert,

This type of question, is called a rhetorical question.

I hope this helps, and good luck with your English and Japanese studies.

If you believe the figures you are an idiot. It is impossible to get tested unless you are at death's door. All members of my family have been suffering from a virus with similar symptoms of corona for the last 3 weeks.

Sorry, but there are hundreds of stores and private clinics selling tests.

And if your doctor won't refer you, go to another hospital.

If you want a test it's easy to get.

And, what are your symptoms?

We are constantly told by many the medical professionals know best, yet when they don't think someone has corona suddenly they are part of a conspiracy.

San Frecce Hiroshima vs Gamba was pretty full today.

It was great to see over 1500 fans made the trip from Osaka.

There is a panic in the media and grandstanding politicians and experts, while most have figure out there is thankfully nothing to worry about.

 - working from home for a year, limiting travel, not seeing my boyfriend who lives in a different part of Japan

People can travel whereever they like. Not seeing your boyfriend is a personal choice.

I am confused why People continue to accept these self sacrifics.For what, so corona wil disappear next month,w

Are you elderly, frail, obese?

If not there is no reason you shouldnt travel.

Posted in: Gov't designates Osaka, Hyogo, Miyagi prefectures for stronger anti-virus measures See in context

Again, restaurants, hotels, taxis etc will suffer.

And for what? So corona will disappear in 3 weeks?

I am on the shinkansen now and jyuseki is 70% full. Many People no longer care, yet most won't tell anyone they were traveling.

Jr (pretty much a government owned business) doesn't have empty middle seats and you can travel from Osaka to anywhere without so much as a temperature check.

While. The government are so concerned the vaccine is taking forever.

Yet, restaurants etc are made to shut early.

I don'tparticularly care about corona, so jr's polices don't bother me, I am happy I can travel.

I am just pointing out the hypocrisy of it all and the unjust treatment of one business sector.

Hospital systems are stretched, especially in hardest hit areas such as Tokyo.

That's complete B.S

40 icu patients should not mean the hospital system is stretched.

In the 1st,2nd 3rd wave,

80%plus of hospitals refused to treat coronavirus.

peak in patients levels were a fraction of other countries.

And the medical board has had a year to increase staff. Beds. Equipment yet have done almost nothing.

No the explanation is you can't read Japanese, this was widely covered in the media

@monty and raw bear

Completely agree.

Saying a lockdown reduces infections may be true but

If we all lockdown every winter we could save hundreds of thousands of influenza deaths globally but anyone proposing that would be seen as crazy.

This is a virus with a lower than 1% death rate, in spite of the medical boards hysterics not one hospital was overrun all winter in japan even though there wasn't a lockdown.

It's time to get on with life and stop treating coronavirus as if its ebola.

Posted in: Tokyo area extends shorter business hours over virus rebound worries See in context

This is a virus that 99% plus recover from. Unless your high risk there is no need to wear a mask or reason to be bothered by other's not wearing masks.

Coronavirus is here to stay so I don't plan on wearing a mask forever.

There are no plastic screens in schools and very few offices.

Social distancing too is nothing more than a slogan

Very few( in my case zero) students are old , frail or obese so are at very low or zero risk of illness

So why would clients demand inconvenient screens or social distancing in an eikaiwa?

I haven't bothered with social distancing etc either but I guess I am small enough I can fly under the radar on that.

And your students don't care? I find that extremely hard to believe

Well it's true, most classes wear masks but some prefer not to. That's all that's different.

And not one student has quit, in fact admission is up.

My son plays football unmasked of course.

my daughter piano again no distancing.

This is the real world, completely removed from what you see on the news.

@chabbawanga

I didn't think about how limiting class sizes affects schools and their teachers. Thanks

Personally my classes have always been limited to a maximum of six for quality of education.

What about hard-hit English schools

I own a language school and haven't been affected at all.

May I ask what the problem is?

No new students? Business contracts canceled?

And regarding online lessons, they are far less profitable.

The economics of Five students in a class verses one-to one-online make it unprofitable.

And private students are likely to pay less for online than in the class.

It's fine for a few weeks but not a long term strategy.

The model only works for large companies who can set up sweatshop classrooms in the Philippines.

If the government cant be bothered or doesn't see the need to quickly start mass vaccinations, why should restaurants have to close early?
