in Japan I have had seasonal flu, COVID-19 and influenza. The first two were a minor inconvenience, but influenza totally knocked down for about 10 days.

What is the difference between seasonal flu and influenza ? Is the later the new influenza, H1N1 if I am not wrong, appearing in 2009 ?

68 people would disagree with your comment, but they can't anymore.

What's about the other 3000 who do pass away every day as a result of age and disease. Covid is now endemic, impacts old people, and part of the life cycle.

Though, my main concern is: will foreign residents and Japanese people be allowed back into the country without vaccination proof or a negative PCR test?

It makes sense that residents of Japan should be exempted

visa-waiver travel to people from certain countries as long as they are vaccinated.

What does mean certain countries ? Why not all countries ? And isn’t more related to the type of vaccine, ie recognized vaccine, rather than the country.

Anyway, PCR still needed if you are not three times vaxxed. Scrap that.

Never heard of that. Vaccination proof or pct testing have never been abolished. which countries the article is talking about ?

I noticed the number of deaths is always at the end of the article.

Shouldn’t it be at the top ? Isn’t it more important that all figures of infected?

but even healthy young people are at risk from omicron

Any clear scientific data to assert that healthy young are at risk ?

Hopefully people will also get vaccinated against influenza,

You are really pushing for vaccination.

In Japan, the official ministry recommendation is to vaccinate over 65 yo,

Posted in: Japanese government shutting down its COVID contract-tracing app COCOA See in context

Useless app , based on voluntary registration by infected persons to be able to work properly.

And wasn’t it developed from a free licence which overseas app also used ?

As it is an heritage site, efforts are made, as well as along the open beaches where tourists go in summer.

Cases are also dropping because less reported and counted. From Sep 26, private insurance will stop paying benefits except elderlies and persons at risk. When I got tested at hospital, I knew I was positive as I had an antigen test at home. But needed the official hospital result. It helped to get benefits too

If the goal is economic related, it Just means that decisions in the first place are not scientifically based.

From my own experience, five days of isolation is enough.

It is said this are wrtitren rules and ordinances. But in really, how does it work, any concrete examples that some agencies still use floppy disks. I believe nobody does.

Maybe some savings on CD roms, or for sure paper.

Japan considers letting asymptomatic COVID patients go out if mask worn

There is no control when infected about your move. People need to eat and some have to go out to buy food.

I was more controlled through the MySOS app last year after returning from overseas, than when I had covid recently.
