Schools would be nice. I work at a private high school and haven't heard anything.

@n1ki

You're kinda right. It's 24% of people over 65.

https://vdata.nikkei.com/newsgraphics/coronavirus-japan-vaccine-status/

So 780,000 people. That's almost 3.5 million.

@Paul

The link stating that Sputnik is 6 times more effective was posted on the TASS Russian News Agency, known to be 100% Russian propaganda. TASS doesn't state sources and doesn't have a single critical article of Putin and his administration.

@vic.M

I'm curious, got a source on all those deaths connected to the vaccines?

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/adverse-events.html

States that as of April 12th, of 189 million people vaccinated in the USA there have been 3,005 reported deaths but Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has not detected patterns in cause of death that would indicate a safety problem with COVID-19 vaccines.

And don't your dare link to articles posted by the Children's Health Defense.

Here's another link debunking a lot of hogwash.

Enjoy.

Tokyo Gov Yuriko Koike said on Sunday she might make the request after the capital's daily coronavirus cases surpassed 500 for the sixth consecutive day, with only three months left before the opening of the Tokyo Olympics.

And now that it hasn't hit 500 for the sixth day, Tokyo doesn't need to request a third SOE.

Nice save of face there for Koike.

@klausdorth

The capacity of novel coronavirus testing in Tokyo will be increased to about 65,000 per day by early December, Gov. Yuriko Koike said Friday, October 20, 2020.

To be fair she said she was planning to increase the ability to test up to 65,000 people not that they were actually going to test that many people.

That's how I read it unfortunately.

I don't know why everyone is panicking over a few cases here and there. Surely, there wouldn't be an Olympics unless everything were under control.

Don't forget what Suga said back on September 26th, 2020.

“In the summer of next year, Japan is determined to host the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games as proof that humanity has defeated the pandemic.”

Japan's 9345

That's 9,345 too many.

Are you satisfied that Japan is moving at a snails pace to prevent more people from dying?

Seriously?

@Robert Hancock

All the info is right here.

https://www.mhlw.go.jp/stf/seisakunitsuite/bunya/vaccine_sesshujisseki.html

Right now they're averaging at about 43,000 vaccinated a day so it's only going to take 837 days.

It's not that bad, mate. /s

@HimariYamada

Japan has received 2,376,500 does of the vaccine to date.

Feb 12 400,000

Feb 21 450,000

March 1 526,500

March 8 1,000,000

Yet has only vaccinated  230,542 people.

https://www.mhlw.go.jp/stf/seisakunitsuite/bunya/vaccine_sesshujisseki.html

What's happening with the other 2,000,000 doses? The EU contract forcing Japan to keep them in the freezer?

@bokuda

It's not that bad.

Up to 230,000 total now.

https://www.mhlw.go.jp/stf/seisakunitsuite/bunya/vaccine_sesshujisseki.html

Looks like they're averaging at about 35,000 a day. So to get 80% of the population vaccinated, we'll be good in about 2,900 days.

Posted in: Hives, chills reported following COVID-19 vaccination in Japan See in context

Ahh the fear mongering has begun!

How about some more info huh?

Does the recipient have a history of hives? How bad was it? Did they die? Did they recover? How soon after the immunization did the hives occur?

How about some reporting for a change?

Posted in: Japan begins vaccination drive, but why so late? See in context

@HimariYamada

Interesting headline. Is Japan the only country that is "late"? Lets see:

Australia will start next week:

The vaccine is not a priority because Australia has handled covid pretty well comparatively.

And we don't have an Olympics in 5 months.

https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2021/feb/16/australias-covid-vaccine-rollout-how-will-it-happen-and-when-can-you-get-it

Furthermore, Australia hopes to have everyone who wants to be vaccinated immunised by the end of October.

That's 16.5million people in 8 months.

Not bad for a "late" country.

Maybe they lie a little bit to themselves...lol Alone the Australien Open quarantine and also the published numbers on some counting websites draw another picture, but feel free to go ahead.

The article is about local transmissions.

And what websites?

Victoria's website says 0.

https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/victorian-coronavirus-covid-19-data

NSW says 0, too.

https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19

Even the Australian Department of Health website reports 0 local cases.

I remember that Hiroshima was going to do 800,000 PCR tests, we decorated all our headlines last week.

What happened to that?

I'm sure they're still considering it.

But they better get a move on if they want to test everyone by their goal of March.

No need to rush these things though...
