My favorite Twitter quote this week:
How y'all scared of the vaccine but not scared of Covid :^ |
Virusrex is not unpopular, he just isn't stupid...
(A few points to think about over the weekend)

Wear masks in public and at work. Everybody. No excuses.

Another good reason to wear a mask. I got some of those stickers for my parents back home and they love them.
Make Santa and Elvis happy this year and wear a mask in the midst of the 3rd wave. If not for your benefit but for others around you.
Happy holidays everyone and stay safe.

I am curious when vaccination in Japan will start?
An alternative Japanese news source reports
London – Japanese society is expected to fully return to normal from the novel coronavirus crisis in April 2022, according to British medical analytics firm Airfinity Ltd., with the country projected to be the last developed nation to do so due to a slower anticipated rollout of vaccines.
I hope this is just hot-air and not what is going to happen.
Until April 2022 keep those masks on!

Did it get the Corana test before it was allowed to enter the country? ;^))
Joking aside, nice to see a genuinely awe inspiring headline story.

"All we are saying is give masks a chance"
Elvis couldn't have written better himself!
Feeling all shook up as a true talent died so needlessly.
Take care everyone. Happy and safe holidays to one and all.

People who encourage others not to wear masks should be ashamed of themselves. This includes people publicly defaming them, and being seen in public without a mask, fully aware of the risk and anxiety it presents others. Think of all the needless deaths and that could have been avoided if people had worn them for 100 days!!!

Yes, hang in there. Lets do our best to make things better. Wear masks everyone!
From a different article:
Health officials knew less about the virus in the early days of the pandemic, but say it's become clearer the main way it spreads is between people — through the respiratory droplets they spray when talking, coughing, sneezing or singing. It's why officials emphasize the importance of wearing masks and social distancing.

The fear needs to be reduced - by focussing less on cases, and more on the fatality rate
Indeed. I just hope you are still wearing your mask.

Umami is associated with MSG.

Science has still not found a convincing explanation for CRS (Chinese Restaurant Syndrome) : indeed, some researchers suggest it may well be to do with the other things diners have imbibed there - peanuts, shellfish, large amounts of lager. Others say that fear of MSG is a form of mass psychosis - you suffer the symptoms you've been told to worry about.

A senior official at the World Health Organization says people in Europe could avoid lockdowns if nearly everyone wears a mask in places where social distancing is difficult.

Got to our ryokan in Okutama. There was Go To Travel signs outside and inside the hotel. We were met by a TV crew who wanted to interview us on our reaction to NOT being able to use the Go To travel scheme.
After a lengthy explanation, my Japanese better-half could not make out what the problem was. (Apparently the governments fault). It boiled down to either paying the full rate or abandoning our planned trip.
Needless to say we didn't give an interview, and will never be going back to that ryokan again.

I read somewhere last week Gill is crepe in the said role. Something like a bad Spittin' Image cameo of the Iron Lady, the reviewer said
Looking forward to finding out myself.

Wear masks. No excuses.
Claim: ‘Face masks don’t work’
Wearing a face mask is certainly not an iron-clad guarantee that you won’t get sick – viruses can also transmit through the eyes and tiny viral particles, known as aerosols, can penetrate masks. However, masks are effective at capturing droplets, which is a main transmission route of coronavirus, and some studies have estimated a roughly fivefold protection versus no barrier alone (although others have found lower levels of effectiveness). If you are likely to be in close contact with someone infected, a mask cuts the chance of the disease being passed on. If you’re showing symptoms of coronavirus, or have been diagnosed, wearing a mask can also protect others. So masks are crucial for health and social care workers looking after patients and are also recommended for family members who need to care for someone who is ill – ideally both the patient and carer should have a mask.
