Posted in: Japan to open large vaccination centers in Tokyo, Osaka: report See in context

 It’s very queer then to see that deaths fell in 2020, yes fell during a pandemic.

This makes perfect sense. Fewer people are out and about to get involved in accidents. More people taking precautions against covid, which are even more effective against other diseases. I don't think we should all be cowering behind our couches, but we definitely need to look at the facts for what they are.

I prefer a sightly thicker urn if I'm honest.

More pathetic idols/slogans/mascots being churned out instead of useful support being provided.

Lack of testing should be enshrined as a part of Japanese intangible cultural heritage. Someone whizz a fax off to UNESCO.

The virus is a virus, and it is behaving exactly how you would expect when you do sweet FA to stop it. With any luck it will be sorted by the end of this year, but don't get your hopes up.

The real issue is the heaps of BS surrounding the whole pandemic. Crappy testing, poor distribution of information, mixed messages every day, decisions taking weeks instead of hours, and the refusal to call the JAPANESE VARIANT what it is.

Oooo Sunday numbers, 710 has got to be at least half of all those tested. Cant wait for the next round of meaningless urging to commence.

Posted in: Japan tightens rules on COVID-19 test certificates for travelers See in context

The land of hypocricy and I feel sorry for the common people which most are unable to get informations to other sources due to their inability to speak another foreign language.

The general public here are as concerned and aware as anywhere else. Online forums and comment sections are filed with comments in Japanese echoing the sentiments you see here. For a lot of people there is no option to work from home, so they just have to lump it.

Posted in: Japan considers letting dentists administer COVID-19 vaccines See in context

It will be the same issue that they are having now with testing. The majority of dental practices are privately run. If you want them to help out in the vaccination drive you need to adequately subsidise them for regular business they are missing out on.

Let them all in. Japanese can be so uptight. A big ol' injection of foreign culture could be just the thing Japan is looking for. Can't wait for some of that ethnic cuisine.

Probably the Japan strain. It has been left to mutate for so long it has become resistant to the existing vaccines. Scary stuff.

The Japan variant especially. Japan may have got off lightly so far, but the world wont look on Japan in the same light when the useless dillydallying leads to a new variant immune to the current vaccines.

Gotta love the US. A nation, where the police literally go around murdering ethnic minorities, lecturing other countries on human rights. Politics is hilarious.
