I wonder if Russian team reacted at all or just sat there and chill to get to venue. I would scream to stop the car and call Police.

Posted in: Japan to see price hikes in food, tobacco products from October See in context


Not going to happen. However in Europe tax (VAT) is high but food tax varies by countries. It is around between 5-9%. In Japan is one tax which if it continues to rise then food might be really expensive.

I spoke with taxmen here about business and asked about it too. I was told it's むずかしい&めんどくさい to set up to tire system.

Sad. Does this mean that all the information about tested people are passed to 3rd parties? How it comes they know to whom to send it?

I repeat again as jn other posts. Infected does not mean sick.

Expect numbers falling further. If they want to make Italy here by putting everyone with positive test into hospital then who wants to risk? Positive doesn't mean sickness (yet)

From Mainichi News

A revision to the infectious disease law would introduce fines of up to 500,000 yen ($4,770) for COVID-19 patients resisting hospitalization and 300,000 yen for those who fail to participate in epidemiological surveys by health authorities.

Posted in: WhatsApp stresses privacy as users flock to rivals See in context

I use 2 alternatives instead of WA which is not installed on my phone.

Signal is good though still based in US and need your phone number. However is free and this is what people wants. I use it but to make people switch it or even keep along their "irreplaceable" Whatsapp doesn't work. Excuse: My all friends and business are using it. Well...good luck.

Threema - Swiss based and cost only $2.99 one time purchase ( less than latte you buy everyday ). However for many it's a looot of money for the app. ( excuse again ). Threema runs on own servers and you don't need phone number or email to use it. It's based on ID and QR code. UI is much better then Signal or WA.

 Sometimes the whole thing feels like a surreal global drama with bit parts, actors and actresses all playing their roles.

Exactly. This is this not sometimes :) I watched vaccine advert on one of the European TV. They encourage people to take it as very safe and show happy faces going out of hospital and then meeting friends without masks.

The same show when it was played those who were leaving hospital after they survived this unknown orchestrated illness.

This is good news but far future as vaccine must make return on investments first

Posted in: Larry King, hospitalized with COVID, moved out of ICU See in context

As I wrote earlier these days everything. is called "corona". Broken arm is broken corona, small cut is small corona.

Hospitals make big bucks for treating this mysterious virus. Even more when they use tube.

He is fine because this wasn't corona but minor flu. ( Oh, flu probably doesn't exist anymore...)

I'm really happy for him. He was likely checked, got antibiotics and was free to go back home. However, because of media he needed to spend 2 days in hospital.

I wished millions of other people whom we don't know, but just hear numbers end up like him.

Posted in: Veteran talk show host Larry King hospitalized with COVID-19: report See in context

These days everything covid. There is no other sickness. This is business. In US hospital say Covid they get $10,000 when connected to tube another $50,000

I know the same happens in some European country.

Besides, good reason to push cooked within 6 months and untested vaccine.

I hope Larry will fight even with his many pre-existing conditions. Maybe give the same cocktail as Trump got.

Posted in: EU vows 'final push' in UK trade talks but fish rift threatens deal See in context

I'm was voted down when I wrote a few rimes here that EU is desperate to get a deal. They cannot stop to talk.

They tested UK border closure now in the name of new virus. Isn't strange timing? They show what is going to be like when there is no deal.

Next they EU Commission called to reopen borders again. z lesson learned. Now let's get this f&@&g fish deal or drag the negotiations for another 5 years because we in EU need your fishes.

Posted in: Suga denies need for state of emergency as cumulative infections top 200,000 See in context

Hmm, so Japanese passport holders can travel freely from hotspots like England with no requirement to self-isolate upon return to Japan? Seems a bit dodgy.

Japanese are required to self isolate as everyone who arrives in Japan regardless of nationality. The things that no one in Japan really enforce it. It's up to those people wether they want to stay home or just go to do shopping. All you have to do is answer 2 questions everyday via LINE

do you feel good today?

do you have fever?

That's it. No tracing about you walking around the city.

Diplomats are free to travel. Without PCR I guess

Yes and No.

Yes they don't have to do test before coming to Japan as long term foreign residents.

No, they are not free of test at arrival. They are tested as everyone else. The difference is that they don't have to wait for the result at the airport but proceed to immigration and go home. They receive result by phone 3 days later. They cannot use public transport and must quarantine as everyone else. This is information from my direct source.

Posted in: EU stops short of advising against holiday travel over virus See in context

“Every 17 seconds a person loses their life due to COVID-19 in Europe,” EU health commissioner Stella Kyriakides said. 

Exactly, because many people who are waiting for other treatments or surgeries are turned away due to bed shortages that have been assigned to covid only patients.

So yes, people die due to covid only available beds.

Posted in: Japan to allow 'large-scale' overseas visitor numbers for 2020 Olympics: report See in context

As many countries use technology and security these days to deliver PCR test result by email in English, it won't pass in Japan. YOU MUST SHOW THEIR SPECIFIC FORMAT with SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS how the test is to be conducted. Now imagine all those people crashing MOFA website to download doc. and please their test centers to do manual work.

From MOFA website:

This format (Word) filled and signed by a medical institution is considered to be valid. So, in principle, please use this format

Posted in: European regulator to decide Dec 29 on 1st virus vaccine See in context

It is a very positive development and hopefully the regulators will find the results robust enough to approve the use of the vaccine. This is the product of a huge amount of effort

of course it is to bring side effects without proper clinical tests. You like to manipulate your DNA? Good luck.

Posted in: Red Cross chief urges vaccine 'fake news' fight See in context

In a quarter of countries, Rocca said, the study found that the acceptance rate for a vaccine against the coronavirus was near or below 50 percent

another guy paid by WHO or RedCross worries about vaccination which is unfinished, rushed to make without exactly knowing what is for, likely to do something with human DNA. On JTV was program in which someone gave his opinion too. He asked the same question as what it suppose to do something that normally takes years to produce. Media and politicians are the one who see nothing else but vaccination. It stinks here something. No wonder there are so many theories. I know for sure that it is not something you want to have injected right now. Only healthy people were tested and how about those who have pre-existing conditions and take glorified and miraculously problem solving vaccine?

If there is no deal, New Year’s Day will bring huge disruption,

This is what EU is scared most. UK keeps EU hostage knowing that Barnier and team will come up with something to not allow this happen. I read in another news that there will be small agreement even though French want first to have translated into French but Barnier said there is no time for it. ( means just sign it whatever because we loose ).
