The virus upsurge in Tokyo underscores the difficulty of balancing anti-virus measures and the economy.

Just give the people who have to be out and about for the sake of the economy the vaccine!!!!
How difficult is that to work out???? All this hot air and nonsense.... got me shakin all over!!!!!

If only the same logic was applied to public mask-wearing.
-1 ( +6 / -7 )
Because it is true? because people do wonder why trees are blooming earlier? because it does help making people aware human originated climate change is real and have consequences?
if people don't know all that by now they have been living on a different planet until today. Or historically the news fails to effectively inform
The article is recycling and compounding the same old fear-factor. I call such articles "click-bait".

Is it because when you don't like what the experts say you find easier to criticize the media?
Not arguing with the experts or blaming them at all. Can't criticise the experts for what the news reports. Nothing new to report really so why report it is all I am saying.

This report is just an extension of the doom discourse that the mass media thrusts upon us.
Next it will be the fear of heatstroke because of masks. Then the ~est on record, late fall, no snow, natural disasters increase etc.
Imagine if the news was "there is no news worth reporting so have a nice day."

Traveling” is synonymous with “spreading.”
Went travelling with my Priscilla. Travelled the whole journey by private car, stayed in a rented chalet, cooked our own meals, masked up and social distanced when was necessary. Also we kept our hands immaculately clean too. So I would argue the validity of Kanta's generalisation. Uh-huh!!!

If you dont want that situation, stay home and dont go out.
Not complaining. just giving an anecdote of the current situation, Monty. But thanks for the wise words because I actually am a dumb 6 year old.

Was peer pressured to go for ramen. The condition being only if the place was quiet.
And quiet it was. So we ordered. On cue a senior walks in with a mask protecting the chin and sits right behind me in this empty restaurant! Knocks my chair with hers as she gets comfy.
Then a party of 4 genkii fifty somethings walk in, sit in the corner., order a few beers and start laughing and shouting!!
it was the most unpleasant bowl of ramen I have had. And that was Saturday before SoE ended. I hope I will survive and things don't spiral out of control.
Take care everyone and take care of your fellows.

All that security and legislation to prevent new strains from entering the country but, there are no consequences for "muppets" who do not wear a mask.

Only way to get things back to as before, is get the population vaccinated. That is quite obvious. So I can't see why the vaccination foot-dragging is being tolerated, especially with the olympics round the corner.

Any news on the Japanese vaccination program effort?

More to it than karaoke IMO.
For instances, in my place of work there are certain "players" in the office with masks under their chin, eating and talking on the communal phone, with doors and windows closed too. Shock and horror in know!!!!
Complacency has set in and it is tolerated for the sake of a quiet life.

Cart before the horse!!!
They might want to a. get the vaccination b. put it into people first.

Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga has pledged to secure COVID-19 vaccines for Japan's population of 126 million within the first half of 2021.
Which implies so many things.
Time's running. We are already half way through March and a glacier couldn't move any slower.

As long as the right type of masks are fitted properly they give sufficient protection. Most masks probably aren't worn properly, especially those lose uniqluo jobs that are popular.
85% is very high and 89% is even higher. I say wear two masks for peace of mind that you are not putting lives at risk... our worse!!!
