Posted in: Osaka to reuse Olympic cardboard beds for COVID-19 patients See in context

Should have been used for this purpose in the first place and temporary facilities to deal with Covid should have had precedence over the outrageous games.

How tragic. Lesson in why not to get agitated with others drivers. RIP and prayers for those injured.

Posted in: Vaccine minister Kono to run in LDP leadership race See in context

I thought that he would be a good candidate before the vaccine fiasco. Can't get past the thought that maybe he was set up for a fall. Publicly blaming young people for the issues with the vaccine when there were clearly so many other issues was not a smart move. Hope whoever wins will focus on keeping the population safe, providing adequate medical resources and speedy vaccines

More Olympic absurdity. Why not give them to homeless people instead of throwing them out. The mind boggles at the insanity of the Olympics

Agree with you blue.

I can't make head nor tail of this article.

Posted in: Japan's governors call for COVID lockdown See in context

How can Japan possibly be in this position after having so long to prepare. Too focused on the ridiculous Olympics, not wanting to accept vaccine results of other populations, Go To Travel (craziest iidea ever), ridiculously slow vaccine roll out.......

Posted in: Olympics now ended, Suga pinning his hopes on vaccinations See in context

the total has doubled in the past four months to exceed 1 million. Tokyo's daily caseloads tripled during the Games that ended Sunday. And as hospitals fill up, nearly 20,000 infected people are isolating at home, over 10 times more than a month ago.

Emphasis in the wrong place for months. Vaccines should have had top priority all along not the expensive ego driven Olympics. Hard to understand any logic here

Posted in: Key to success of Beijing Olympics lies in China-Japan relations See in context

The key to the success of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics and Paralympics lies in how China-Japan ties will develop after the Tokyo Summer Games

Says who?

Doesn't China just do its own thing?

Posted in: Olympic exodus begins in Tokyo See in context

I wish them well but......

Looks like a super spreader event right there.

Of course they are maintaining the bubble with no risk to aand no contact with locals (the airport presumably runs unstaffed)......

Posted in: Measures that made Tokyo Olympics possible also left public disconnected See in context

Suga's optimistic view that the Olympics would be well received once they started has somewhat been supported by the lift in sentiment due to Japanese athletes' medal rush

Really. I don't think many hold that view

Posted in: Counting the coronavirus cost at Tokyo Olympics See in context

Regardless of any statistics, the Olympics diverted resources away from the people of Japan, took attention away from what should have been the country's focus (the vaccination programme) and cost Japan an inordinate amount of money which could have been better spent elsewhere. I do not believe they should have been held.

They have clearly demonstrated that the games are not just about the sport and irreparably damaged the reputation of the IOC.

Posted in: Bach says Tokyo Olympics have 'far exceeded' his expectations See in context

Superspreader event or not the plain fact of the matter is that the Olympics diverted attention and resources away from where they should have been and have undoubtedly caused damage to the Japanese people

Posted in: Suga says adequate measures in place to prevent virus cases spreading from Olympic athletes See in context

Ironic that the explosion of cases in Tokyo is happening when the eyes of the World are on Tokyo.

Would have been far better to have cancelled the Olympics and focused attention on the virus.

I do not believe that it is possible to welcome all those associated with the Olympics and for them to have no contact with Japanese residents. They need transportation, accommodation, food etc all provided and serviced by Japanese residents

Shameful in a modern World. The wife and the system should do the right thing here. He has more than demonstrated that he is sincere in this whatever the circumstances. His death would indeed be pointless as others have said.

Posted in: Japan's Olympic security balancing act leaves few satisfied See in context

"During a once-in-a-century pandemic".

Glad that the article writer knows this.

"forcing the team and seven city officials and drivers who had close contact with them to self-isolate"

Ah, so the 'no contract with locals" constantly touted before the start of the arrivals was, as we all suspected, a total myth

"As a step to tighten coronavirus border controls"

Give me a break, first they don't allow anybody in and now they are letting all the Olympic entourage in. No consistency whatsoever. Oh weren't there rising cases again and isn't there a state of emergency, or was it a quasi state of emergency whatever that is? The World is looking at Japan again with total incomprehension and bemusement.

Well a little bit of common sense at last but really this is such an embarrassment and farce. The games should just be cancelled. I don't know which to think is worse this insanity or England discarding all Covid restrictions whilst infections rise exponentially. The World seems full of greed and insanity
