Posted in: Tokyo Olympics must be reconsidered due to Japan's failure to contain pandemic: report See in context

Japan began its inoculation push in February, later than most major economies. Only 0.9% of the Japanese public have received their first shot so far, compared with 2.5% in South Korea, and 48% in the United Kingdom.

Hum, UK succeeded to get such a rate by stealing AZ vaccine from other European countries... Not sure it is a good example.

It's also possible that these after effects are actually side effects from the volley of medications and treatments given to Covid patients.

OK we're talking here about young people who had been diagnosed with a mild case of the COVID-19 disease. I guess the "volley of medication" for them was Ibuprofen or Paracetamol...

Posted in: With Olympics at stake, Mori seen as too influential to push aside See in context

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga said in parliament that Mori's remarks "completely diverge from the important Olympic ethos of gender equality" but declined to directly address calls for his resignation.

Looking at this sentence... it looks like Mori's remark does not diverge that much from Suga's ethos of gender equality...

Such a shame.

Thank you for your comments, they are the best scientific ones I ever read.

I usually always agree with you on everything, but

There is no evidence that a regular vaccine is going to be necessary. If that were the case reinfections would be very common.

There is no evidence of the contrary either... We still don't know the duration of the immunity triggered by the vaccines. I may be wrong about it but

vaccine-triggered immunity is not always the same as disease-triggered immunity

Pfizer is using a brand new technique (mRNA), so it's too soon to say how long the immunity will last.

other seasonal coronaviruses (Sars-COV-1, MERS) immunity seems to be 4-5 years

Let's be optimistics and say that the immunity will be more than 1 year.
