Posted in: Mass testing, empty ICUs: Germany scores early against virus See in context

In other words, Germany is very precise and only people who die that actual had the virus get counted in the figures while Italy is sloppily including a whole bunch of natural deaths in their figures. Italy’s numbers are inflated, Germany’s are accurate.

Why would Italy want to inflate their figures by including non Covid-19 deaths in their figures?

Absolute nonsense, from someone who claims Covid-19 is "just a bad cold" and "completely exaggerated" and "all hype".

RIP. Perhaps people will now start taking this unprecedented seriously, and stop going to restaurants, bars and izakaya. Lets hope so.

Posted in: Virus cases spike after Australia cruise ship stand-off ends See in context

Will these dozens of cruise ship infected by counted as numbers in an "International conveyance"?

From this point forward, ANY person of ANY age should be refused insurance as soon as they set foot upon a cruise ship. Period. This reckless industry is truly awful, and has cost the world billions of dollars and untold deaths.

This is a coward act by Tiny Kim. Threaten the region when all neighbors are already terrified in an unprecedented crisis. The world wont forget this, Tiny Kim.

More sub-human filth that needs to be put down. I hope and pray the poor baby recovers fully and never has contact with this animal for the rest of her life.

Yet another sociopath. Throw the old dropkick in prison along with the loser who did the same thing in a drugstore.

Complete and utter stupidity. Some WILL be infected, guaranteed.

Ministry of Health officials should lose their jobs and pension over this - but they won't.

I love beer. I like matcha tea. I see absolutely no reason to combine the two. Just enjoy them as they are!

Posted in: Virus-striken Diamond Princess leaves Yokohama Port See in context

Cruise ships are nothing more than giant disease incubators.

Well said. It is beyond belief that even after the horror of the Diamond Princess , people have continued boarding these death traps. And now these passengers are insisting they are allowed to dock, unbelievable.

JSDF cleaning this ship found that the virus was still detected on surfaces 17 days after the room had been vacated.

Scrap the ships and scrap the cruise industry.

Posted in: Japan, IOC agree to postpone Tokyo Olympics for one year See in context

The only logical decision. So much for Bach - and some posters here mind you - stating until very recently that a "postponement was impossible", "Schedules for 2021 have been locked in", "The athletes village will be taken over by the owners in September 2020". Impossible, they claimed.

It was ALWAYS possible - and the right thing to do.

A Vaccine should be ready early 2021.

I hope you are right. I really do for humanity's sake. But I have not seen any researchers claim this is likely. Most are saying a 12-18 month time-frame.

This is just dumb.

Why not just run all the Olympic events with the athletes inside cars in the stadium.

Posted in: Warnings fail to stop Japanese crowds from viewing cherry blossoms See in context

These people are dummies, lets not mince words. Listen to authorities. They have zero concept of social distancing in the midst of the worst pandemic in 100 years. Do they think they are immune?

Enjoy sakura in non-crowded areas, you dummies.

Madness. Waste of time, and if crowds are involved a good way to spread the deadly virus.

Will they stage another one for Tokyo-Sapporo 2021?

Posted in: Tokyo Olympics seem sure to happen — but in 2021, not 2020 See in context

It seems that wise heads will now prevail. As I have always stated since this awful pandemic broke out, Summer 2021 is the best time to schedule them. IOC has suddenly now realized this.

The party next year when hopefully this pandemic is well behind us (after a vaccine is discovered) will be unprecedented. They will be dancing on the streets of Tokyo and Sapporo non-stop for 3 weeks!

Why haven't the Tokyo Olympics been postponed already?

Money and greed - the two most important elements of the Olympics.

Posted in: IOC chief rebuts growing calls for Olympic postponement See in context

Seriously, this dumb old fool Bach needs to be ousted.

Shut down Tokyo 2020 NOW. Postpone them until a later date - perhaps 2021 or later - when this war is over.

If madman Bach forces them to go ahead, they will be the WORST olympics of all time.

No coincidence these random and violent crimes are happening more often these days.

@ Old man. Wrong. Statistics prove that crime is decreasing in Japan and has for many years .

RIP to the poor pensioner. He did not deserve to die like this, bludgeoned with a concrete block until death for no apparent reason. I hope they catch the evil, violent killer.

Well, at least he doesn't have to be imprisoned now, as so many of us were hoping for.

I just hope the poor workers at the izakaya and snack are OK now.

I am not sure if this statement is correct.

Anyway, positive news. More should be done on youth suicide.

Excellent news, and the only possible sentence. This animal has shown no remorse and has lost his right to live in any society.

Why do these reports always include the cruise ship people? They are no longer in Japan.

The majority of them are Japanese and are in Japan.

Posted in: What would an Olympics cancelation cost Japan? See in context

Japan is a country up to its eyeballs in debt...

This is misunderstood by some. Since almost ALL debt is owed to Japanese creditors - citizens, corporations and banks - all the Japanese gov't needs to do is order the Reserve to print more money when they choose to pay back that debt. Its no problem at all.

Tokyo 2020 is finished, it is clearly impossible now. Its just a matter of when the announcement is made. Sooner rather than later is best. Leaving the decision until late April is reckless.

Tokyo-Sapporo 2021.

Imprison the filthy coward child abuser that did this, for a long time, and prevent her from ever contacting this poor girl.
