Fascist regimes must be in an extreme panic that they now have to ban visitors for showing up with their own flag during a sporting event thinking this will cancel their presence, besides, does not Ukraine govt have a major corruption problem to resolve before acting as the ultimate morality god of the world?

WHO should be renamed Bill & Melinda Health Corp or be independent by cutting finance from any Medical Lobbying Group.

https://gigafact.org/fact-briefs/does-bill-gates-control-world-health-organization

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation currently funds just over 12% of the World Health Organization’s operations, making it the second biggest donor to the WHO after the U.S. If the United States permanently withdraws funding, the foundation would become the largest single donor. The Gavi Alliance, a public-private partnership that supports vaccine development, is the WHO's next-largest donor, just ahead of the U.K. The Gates Foundation has given Gavi $4 billion since launching it in 1999.

In 2014 the WHO's then-director general, Dr. Margaret Chan, acknowledged that “my budget is highly earmarked, so it is driven by what I call donor interests.” However, the WHO is formally controlled under a UN charter by the World Health Assembly, composed of delegates from sovereign nations, who pay assessments and elect the director general.

As an added bonus, that same drone can alert the authorities if you're on your balcony in violation of lockdown orders.

Like they do in China.

Not only China, France too used drones to chase people violating the lockdown.

As matter of fact as it is, the move has been widely praised online, with many leaving comments saying they hoped PARCO's attitude toward the massive street party would spread to other local businesses as well:

Posted in: Yahoo! Japan won’t let anyone post comments without providing a phone number See in context

The phone number requirement follows the creation last month of the Japan Fact-Check Center, an NPO largely funded by Yahoo! and Google and run by scholars and journalists with the goal of curbing misinformation online, especially with regards to COVID-19 and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Are Gafa turning into the ministry of truth in Japan? Who is going to check that they are not spreading propaganda instead of facts? Is money deciding now what is the only truth?

The 30 million or so Japanese that haven't been vaccinated seem to be doing just fine as well.

Of course, all the thousands of people getting positive every day and reported here are defacto vaccinated by the latest variant of the virus or by a combination of different variants if they are exposed to them.

What about stopping spreading opinions and being wise enough to wait for the trial test to be completed by February 8th 2024 before stating what was safe and what was not?

https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/record/NCT04368728

Btw, "independent" researchers will access the trial protocol data only 2 years after the study will be completed, so around 2026, there cannot be any trusted peer-reviewed studies written before independent researchers can access the full study data.

Thanks to people putting their health at risk jumping into the unknown for the next coming years, helping the medical corporation to grow and gather data, and, for doing it for free while getting no reward other than a few months of pseudo-protection at best at every injection.

In the meantime....

Posted in: Tokyo, other areas lift restrictions on eateries amid virus resurgence worries See in context

A government experiment using proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative virus test results was conducted Monday at eateries in Osaka city's Minami district, with customers showing their proof being allowed to sit in groups of five or more per table.

That is not fully correct, not just testing in Osaka city, apparently, it is also now applicable in some restaurants since 25th here in Tokyo, like for example this Sushi restaurant in Hibya (see link below) which does require already to check your proof of vaccine if you are more than 4, I cannot imagine the owner will be doing discrimination by the vaccine and having random staff checking our (still) private medical information without being greenlighted by the government or having some laws allowing them to do it.

Good.

You seem so comfortable that others lost their jobs including families behind which are going to suffer, I did not know we could enjoy so much on such news, the cynism of some are really reaching sky-high altitude...in any cases, comforting me into not signing up for their "between-us only world".

Posted in: Japan to experiment with proof of vaccination at big sporting events See in context

keeps the public safe in knowledge that the person next to them is also vaccinated and thus creating a safe environment for everyone to enjoy the event. It is important to adjust the number of patrons based on outcome.

That is the indeed THE major Dogme of this new Covidist religion "Vaccinated Chosen are safe and are creating a safe environment for all, Alleluyah", "Vaccinated & Unvaccinacted will carry and transmit the virus to the others" is Heresy, probably nothing will convince you anyway now, so obviously you have your beliefs like some had in the past that "the earth was the center of the universe and not orbiting around the sun, heresy".

Facial tracking of "a group" requires of course to look at everybody's face in order to compare each face to a database, so in a nutshell, tracking everybody, you can't know in advance which faces would need to be tracked and which one would not before you actually do it.
