Vaccines will not save you guys. The virus is mutating, there are so many variants now, that it will become ineffective. A regular one will be necessary like for the flu. But like for the flu, the immune system will fight it, except for the ones with a weakened immune system, especially the old people.

The only advantage I see will be the ability to freely travel.

I am ok with that delays

and hope authorities will stop vaccination programs as long as it is not fully safe. Better to have nothing than being forced for travelling back home to take a vaccine that is not proven safe.

Just because Japan wants to pretend like it's not a thing and this virus is "just a cold" doesn't mean that's the truth.

The number of tests might be low but Japan does pretend the opposite of what you say. In the media, talking about covid is always alarmist, and nearly everyday journalists and politicians do remind the masses how dangerous it is and the side effects on a short and long term basis.

Someone who now will pretend it is just a cold will be ejected from the mainstream media.

There is not enough doses received, so if the rollout was fast, the vaccination would stop on the way to only rise more complains. Better to be a bit late and run smoothly the program.

Rush hour trains have not been shown to be a factor in transmission. All passengers in masks and not talking is low risk.

Agree.

That’s what I have been saying for months but not many do agree. Beliefs are strong.

Posted in: Japan trails world in COVID vaccine rollout 2 months after its start See in context

JT forumers mean opinion has considerably changed over the past year. I summarize. It is just the mean.

It used to be :

I won’t wear this mask. It does not work.

then

I won’t get the vaccine. It is developed too quickly to work

Recently it has been

I did spot a guy without a mask. A moron.

or

Japan is too late to give the shot. Inept and incompetent.

Which could be translated by I wanna get the shot quickly.

Australia, which had banked on the AstraZeneca vaccine for the majority of its shots, had no plans to set any new targets for completing its vaccination program

Ahead of Japan for the time being...

But with non plan to complete the program by 2021..... it might end behind....

Please, no need to say Japan is late or bashing Japan.

Many countries are “late” or haven’t started yet and we all know that is depends on the makers production capacities and priorities to deliver to some countries. And priority countries like the US or UK have been badly hit by the virus, thanks to the incompetence of the top leaders being on the deny, catching themselves the covid

Posted in: Restaurant, bar owners worry about tighter COVID-19 steps See in context

Maybe the leading cause of infection transmission is the public transportation system

Again, a misunderstanding about the risk in transports, which is really low one overly overestimated and feared.

If I follow your logic, bars and restaurants are much safer ???

Posted in: Large numbers of people out and about despite gov't antivirus pleas See in context

Personally, I stop drinking right at 8:00 because that’s when the government said the virus becomes active and attacks those drinking.

After 8pm, the chances of getting drunk are much higher, then you might release your attention and prevention. While before 8, the brain is still working enough to keep awake and spot the virus flying around

Trains are wonderful. Nobody talks so the virus go to restaurants and after 8pm hang out in parks and outside convenient stores.

Yes, and that's why trains are safe, but saying that goes against the common thinking

It has not been any report of cluster in a train

How would such a cluster be identified in Japan?

Well,in the Shinkansen, regional trains (or even airplanes)

Sven AsaiToday 07:01 pm JST

That’s bare of any logic, @didou. You have to calculate [number of people] ./. [space of the closed room] , case by case. In most of such cases you will then have as a result a higher coefficient for commuter trains, not for restaurants.

You forgot an important factor. Interaction between people, i.e. behavior. In trains, people do not have any "risky" behavior, and as I have said, do not interact together. In restaurants (except the ramen for salaryman), no mask, everyone is talking, screaming, etc..... specially after a few alcohol drink

@virusrex10:17 pm JST

you're right. logical.
