It's going to spike again. In the daytime, shopping malls, coffee shops, and restaurants are crowded. Let's hope we don't have any friends or family end up on the death list. Then it won't feel like "just 13" or whatever the total will be in the future.

Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.

Laugh in the whole world will laugh with you.

Posted in: Japan to start COVID vaccinations next week despite syringe shortage See in context

First, there isn't enough doctors and nurses qualified to administer the vaccine. Now, there isn't enough syringes. What's next?

Do these figures include people being tested at private clinics? Do these clinics report their figures to the government?

PCR home testing kits are even being sold at Costco now for 6000yen. Are these results being reported?

The last 3 days, the number if tested way below 50,000. The four days before that, the number if tested was above 60,000 peaking close to 90,000 a few times. The news should always report how many people were tested.

Posted in: Tick-Tock: Tokyo Olympics hit the 200-days-to-go mark See in context

So if looks like $19 billion is tax payers' money. What a money pit. Japan didn't need the Olympics to increase visitors to Japan. It is already ranked one if the top tourist destinations in the world. A fool and his money is soon parted.

Yes, it will surpass 2021 people in January, because not enough people are not willing to give up their holiday season habits.

The "Go To Travel" did fine this summer. So they got cocky and added "Go To Eat" and "Go To Event". That's when things went astray.

Clubs and bars will be packed tonight and these party people will then rest up at home with their families.

But don't worry, we will still have the Olympics this summer.

Shot the suspect in the thigh? Only fired twice? Lucky for him that the officer never received any training in the U.S.

I'm sure the officers were wearing vest. Aiming for the leg within 2 meters would have been possible, but of course police officers train like soldiers aiming only for center mass.

I believe we can all agree that there won't be any more childish twitter rants from a US president. We will only miss those tweets for their entertainment and shock value.

Posted in: Trump says protesters would have met 'vicious dogs' if White House fence breached See in context

Every year over a 1000 people are killed by police in America. Every year around 100 of those are unarmed black men and women. Not every person brutalized by the police ends up dying, so imagine the tens of thousands that lived through these experiences and their families, friends and neighbors. Also, keep in mind this is not a new phenomenon. Some of you have only seen this a few times. Here is a website with the statistics of police murders in America. Also, photos and background information on the victims. https://mappingpoliceviolence.org/

Is getting an education worth the risk? Even though children might only exhibit mild symptoms or none at all, how about teachers and parents? It's a shame that the economy and education trumps people's health and well-being. It's the world we were born in.

Posted in: 568 new cases of coronavirus reported in Japan See in context

As of now, they have tested 111,325 people so far. 10,439 tested positive. Of those, 1069 have recovered and 222 dead. It's impossible for this so-called state of emergency to end on May 6.

By the way, a 30 year old male in Saitama died of COVID-19 on April 14. No mention if he had any pre-existing condition. I believe he is the youngest person to die from this virus in Japan.

Posted in: You've got mail: 'Abenomask' distribution starts in Japan See in context

46.6 billion yen is a waste of taxpayer's hard earn money. I'm returning mine with a note "Don't waste tax payers' money."

They should have had an online request system for people to order the mask if they need them. I haven't spoke to any one thrilled about getting these masks.

I wonder what company is earning this money to make these masks. The government should reveal that information. I'm sure it would reveal political connections.

I'm sending the masks I receive back to the government with a note asking to not waste tax payers' money. Masks should only be sent by requests from citizens.

200 yen a mask? If they bought 50 million masks, there is no way they would costs 200 yen a piece. What company is making these masks, so I can buy some of their stock?

Bars and night clubs are as busy as ever. The train will get more congested if they allow students to return to school next week as planned. These past 3 months, Japan could have done more to prepare, but they were focused on saving the Olympics. Now, they are focused on saving the economy.

I know students that came back from Europe last week and we'ret tested at KIX or asked to self quarantine. Japan is going to end up being the worst hit country by COVID-19 if they keep dragging their feet.

Posted in: WHO pandemic declaration won't change Tokyo Olympics plan: Suga See in context

With one professional basketball playee, Rudy Gobert, testing positive for Covid-19 resulting in the NBA season shutting down, I'm sure professional athletes making millions won't risk coming to Japan.

It's best to find a way to postpone the Olympics until 2021. I hope that's possible for Japan's sake.
