Macron should not have ccame to Japan in the first place. While he is imposing the sanitary pass in France, and many restrictions, he is traveling free himself with no quarantine, no pcr test and no sanitary pass. He himself got the covid while accusing French not being responsible enough.
For the present case, though Macron does not personaly care, Vichot had the support of French representatives in Japan and also some Japanese senators. The message has been conveyed to the French Embassy, then Macron as the head of state, and is part of the diplomatic discussion between countries. It will not change much, but by putting constant pressure on Japan, it might have an impact. It is a question of time.
Many women had also their kids abducted, and surprisingly, there are stories of Japanese women havinf their kids abducted by the Japanese father

I vaccinated myself to protect myself. I expect others to get vaccinated to protect those who cannot be vaccinated.
Choose not to be: ok.
Want equal privileges: too bad
Governments make a vaccine mandatory or not. If it is not mandatory, why to discriminate with such a pass

This pass for all sectors of the daily life is a shame and a political hypocrisy.
Macron said he would not make the vaccine mandatory, but finally imposes it through this indirect way.
Cases have been increasing as many, especially the young people, do not care with the summer vacation and are partying, and many vaccinated also do not care anymore. Deaths remain low

At this point, i don't even care anymore because i am already vaccinated.
The problem is that some vaccinated people like you do not care and are responsible for the spreading.
Many non vaccinated are more concerned and conscious

To go through Tokyo, taking the Gaikan all around gets cheaper though it adds a few kilometers.

Japan makes plan based on expected vaccines arrival from overseas. Any changes regarding arrivals affect the schedule.
I note that people in major cities get their tickets well before the ones living in regions and countryside for the same age. Logical in term of health risk. However many who live far away still commute for work toward the major cities

The saliva test they do every day are not always accurate. I wonder if the results are confirmed by PCR before any public release.
Today, an IOC official from Korea tested positive after arriving here. This guy said he has been vaccinated and tested twice negative before departing from Korea

Vaccines protect from being heavily sick, or dying, but not from catching the covid though reducing the risks
The problem is that vaccinated people take off their guards, and in my opinion, are a vector of transmission. They will not know it without symptoms and believe they don’t have the covid as they were vaccinated

In the past, 30,000 deaths due to flu was quite normal, and nobody batted an eyelid or took any special precautionary measures. We need to accept Covid as a fact of life and just stop worrying about it.
Agree with you.
Time has changed and now death is not accepted as in the past due to the medical progress. Like it was ok to loose thousands in wars. Not anymore.
Take some basic precautionary measures

Tokyo is afraid of foreign athletes and staff brining the virus with them? They are more likely to catch it while they are in Tokyo.
Foreign athletes are also afraid of catching the virus from the locals and others. They don’t wanna miss their competition

This is the result of reopening restaurants serving alcohol after June 20. Alcohol lovers could not resist to go back partying with their coworkers after a two month period of gaman.
This combined with the arrival of summer.
