“but it will not make people stay home, especially those who care little about the virus”

It’s not so much that, it’s about proportion. For something that has a recovery rate over 90 percent

“Half the people who are against the Go To are jealous because they can't afford to.Like above statement.First degree jealousy or what?”

Fair point. It certainly helped when I was in Aizu and Nagoya. Local businesses need all the help they can get

“Like Japan, many are out of work including myself. Many business have failed.”

Likely due to the measures you described. Ardern’s approach is like hitting a peanut with a sledgehammer

“I know people who have and have died from this virus”

That one has been thrown out there a thousand times in the last few months and...that hook has lost its bait.

But shall we consider the marriages that have collapsed or those who’ve suicides as a result of the hysteria. Do they not matter to you?

“Probably for the best although tourism and related industries are taking an almighty hiding.”

Agreed. Part of the reason I was in Aizu and Nagoya, helping local businesses

The fatalities, are what unfortunately matters. Not the cases.

We have anywhere between a 90-99 percent recovery rate. That needs to be focussed on, rather than “cases”.

Glad I got my discounts in recently

It’s not a question of being on the fence - both Pfizer and Astra Zeneca are facing lawsuits, and also have immunity from prosecution.

“To all those who still believe in herd-immunity, this might be an interesting / educating read:”

The CEO of Pfizer - itself a subject of lawsuits - is on record offering no guarantees for his vaccine.

We are going to have to learn to live with this virus, like all the others out there which we are not panicking about.

Why not focus on the number of deaths? That will give greater perspective and create less panic. But that would hardly serve the interest of a media outlet would it?

Never had a flu shot - and managed just fine. The difference here is we will be forced to keep taking Covid shots, and will have to prove we’ve had the latest to fly. Load of bollocks

Well bully for Japan. Seems Australia is getting a raw deal though.

And I will be waiting a little to be on the safe side regardless. Just in case.

"Since no such problems have been found in vaccine volunteers it is safe to say that vaccines have lower risk for short AND long term problems compared with the infection."

So, on record, are you ok with drug companies being exempted from liabilities re the vaccine?
