Depends, if you think science and health only then there is no reason to do anything and focus on the person at risk if you think politically and want to control your population and you are an opportunist then you will of course introduce a vaccine passport and force people to innoculate or they will be totally excluded from the social life, fire them out of their jobs, control them at the terrasse, etc.... like in France right now.

They didn't just go after bars and Karaoke without good reason..they have solid, reliable data supporting this.

Japan, and other countries of the region, have low levels of covid deaths especially compared with European countries and American countries. There isn't some kind of government conspiracy to hide the real numbers nor is there a massive jump in monthly deaths compared with other years.
Glad to read some reasonable comments not based on fearmongers' conspiracy theory, at this time it is pretty known by researchers who are at risk of dying, and who are not, from this virus and its variants.

Cryptocurrency is a bigger threat to do money-laundering and so-called terrorist funding.
Don't think so at all!
99% of crypto blockchain are exposing the history of all transactions that happened since the genesis block publicly and anyone can check and follow any crypto transfer in real-time from source to end. Yes, accounts are anonymous however to move crypto to those accounts, you need an open transaction from a known source or a known endpoint (ie: exchanges with KYC). Traceability of cryptocurrencies is a way much more "efficient & fully open" than any fiat currency for that matter, if govt were to use crypto, everybody would be able to pinpoint exactly where all the tax money is going to end, good luck doing that with current cash and brown bags.

Something is telling me that if this was happening in Europe there will be no cases at all except maybe in the "conspiracy" circles, so hats down to Japan for being so fast and so reactive, there is still hope here it seems...

A person from overseas linked with the Paralympics, but not an athlete, has been hospitalized after testing positive on Monday for the coronavirus. The patient is not displaying severe symptoms, committee spokesman Masanori Takaya said.
Current policy: Let's send every positive to the hospital even if no severe symptoms then claim "we have no beds" then advertise "vaccine or we lockdown" and "lack of vaccination is bringing the economy down so we must lockdown", try to follow the silly logic of this insane world, makes zero sense so don't miss it.

Ardern's own COVID-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins on Sunday questioned whether Delta rendered the strategy unviable, but the leader said she believed in it "absolutely".
Call it insanity, nothing science here but belief
"The safest option for all of us right now is to hold the course for longer," she said. "This will allow us to have additional data and see if the virus has spread."
People have their own life and freedom, they are not your toys or your guinea pig to gather data.

If you were a conspiracy theorist, you would probably say "they want the children to be as much as virus carrier as possible so they can push their experimental vaccine on 12 years and lower" but if you are not, then you are probably wondering "What is happening here ?!?!?". anyway, the good news is that if it is so safe for our children to attend that unnecessary event by 10 thousands of them certainly we do not need any lockdown in Tokyo.

The only effect of giving power lockdown to the government is to receive "more lockdown and more restriction on your freedom", can't believe someone in his right mind asking for it. Lockdown...osusume only if you have vested interests or holding shares of a digital business or want to see your small competitors on their knees, to avoid at all cost !!!

I wish these billions of yen were used for hospital beds and oxygen machines instead. I couldn't care less about Mars moon dirt.
The oligarchy would comment: "Why to spend billions in hospitals when you can simply order the population to stay home ?"

this is correct. in fact, the vaccinations are causing the spread of the virus. keeping your head buried in the sand does not mean it's not happening.
What is happening in Vermont USA about variant delta, is definitely something that must be studied.

Anyway, with Uniswap Pairs protocols, Farming & DEFI becoming more and more popular, all thanks to Ethereum's layer 2 networks bringing cheap transactions, (CEX) centralized exchange might probably be, in a near future, a thing of the past.

Cryptocurrencies have soared in popularity as assets in recent years, despite their volatility and concerns over their environmental impact as trading them requires vast quantities of electricity.
Pfff, article written by someone who has no knowledge at all about crypto, it is not trading which may require a vast quantity of electricity but mining and only if the protocol of the crypto asset is "Proof of Work", "Proof of Stake" does not require any except for running the node.

Australia is clear evidence that you cannot avoid a virus to circulate among the population, better spend the energy to treat & cure.

You start to wish for a vaccine and you finish in a Orwellian/segregationist state like France (who would have believed it) where you have 2 types of citizens now based on your blood stream, one can go to the supermarket and the other one cannot, one can go to hospital and one is refused the entrance by a security guard, that is the state you want?

Mass vaccination with an experimental vaccine never used before on humans with no background whatsoever in the long term...what can go wrong? Stop this madness now and bring the vaccine VLA2001 on the field, this one is much more promising against variants and based on conventional fabrication enough with this broken mRNA tech which barely works, requires booster because well...it barely works and will be probably turned in the future into permanent perfusion.

I guess this is obviously showing that the current vaccines do not reduce the viral charge!
The study details a COVID-19 outbreak that started July 3 in Provincetown, Mass., involving 469 cases. It found that three-quarters of cases occurred in fully vaccinated people. Massachusetts has a high rate of vaccination: about 69% among eligible adults in the state at the time of the study.
It also found no significant difference in the viral load present in the breakthrough infections occurring in fully vaccinated people and the other cases, suggesting the viral load of vaccinated and unvaccinated persons infected with the coronavirus is similar.

Let the young Japanese build their own herd immunity and stop panicking, they will protect us like a wall, every single new variant appears to be less deadly than the previous one, as they will get some, they will develop proper antibodies, a mix of all variants and will be less and less sensitive, stronger and stronger. every single new case is bringing us closer, if you feel for your own situation because you are unhealthy or with some comorbidities and worry to develop the severe version, get your vaccine.

Will this interesting live experimentation finally open the eyes of people that even if you vaccinate almost everybody in a confined village with tight regulation then you will have contamination of the vaccinated people (exactly like the Israeli report has been showing)...looking at Australia and all those crazy insane Zero Virus Policy At All Freedom Cost countries headed with Health Taliban which dictate more on believes and conflict of interest, than...studies and observation.

Israeli report: Coronavirus patients who recovered from the virus were far less likely to become infected during the latest wave of the pandemic than people who were vaccinated against COVID (6.72 times more likely), according to numbers presented to the Israeli Health Ministry.
So according to this report, it seems all patients detected positive and reported every day here will build better protection than the one with the current vaccine against a future wave/variant should we get one, so hell yes, vaccinated people too should wear masks more than ever to avoid to catch new variant and keep social distancing to avoid both contamination & transmission of the disease to healthily people.

The government's stated approach of lifting controls now before any winter surge of respiratory disease is marked by "moral emptiness and epidemiological stupidity", said University of Bristol public health expert Gabriel Scally.
Expert in what? conflict of interest? No comment!

Side effects are real, a fear of them is normal, everybody is welcome to judge risk versus benefit and decide, just yesterday FDA added a new warning on J&J, at this time all new vaccines have already identified side effects, who can say today how many new warnings are going to be discovered in the next 2 or 3 years? It is exactly why vaccines need years and not months of pharmacovigilance. As a side note, a person not vaccinated DOES NOT EQUAL a sick one.

It can be as simple as killing and purifying the viruses or producing the protein directly on the lab.
Telling on the board that their "high tech novelty mRNA" was not needed after all, I believe you would say anything in order to push those products

The WHO couldn’t forecast a long weekend holiday.
The WHO’s function is to provide an announcement service for its funders. And as we have already witnessed, it better not deviate.
