You have got to be kidding me. Talk about spin. Seriously, who do you think you’re fooling? That alarming 50% increase is 1 person! One!!
After years of announcements from the J-Gov about good numbers and trends based on ridiculous tests amount, i don't see why the opposite pattern isn't legit now.

Emmanuel Macron 54.69%, Marine Le Pen on 45.31%
Why manipulating the numbers in favor of Le Pen ?

None of the comments here are anti vax or saying that restrictions should be thrown out of the window, your argument is a strawman
it's just because you don't know the history of some here

So, very few in critical condition. That's that main story.
that's the main narrative now since the "Japan model has beaten the coronavirus" is outdated.

I don't see the link between demographics and border controls here since Japan is not known for welcoming foreign residents.
It's just a trend which has stages.

Testing more at arrivals in the airports helps the government narrative that the problem is foreigners and it should keep the borders closed.

They are preparing the public opinion to the real death numbers.
As reminder, the Afghanistan war stopped, partially, because of the russian mothers having enough not seeing their sons back alive while USSR claimed everything was going well.

you already know the answers you want to have to your questions. No need to lose our time with you trying to explain some military facts and Putin's propaganda.

Pathetic people implying we have to choose side when innocents are killed.
We should all be on humanity side.

Vlad said once in the past the sanctions are ineffective and have the opposite effect, citing the example of North Korea that keeps standing.
Russians had 30 years of western relationships they won't go back to a soviet system whereas north korean never experienced that.

Another drumbeat article. It is scary to see how the whole political and media establishment has now unified on the "Putinman bad" narrative.
Open your History book at the year 1938.
At that time, we didn't want to ear the "bad man" narrative.

Oh Japan please keep quiet you've got more to lose than to gain here and everyone knows you're a mouthpiece for the US.
You let Russia do, China will follow and they Japan will have a lot to lose.

Belarus about to send troops in. Putin is a complete and utter liar.
If Putin needs Belarus troops, it shows how amateur this invasion was.

While SUNCTION may cause some financial harm but it will NOT stop Russia, it did not in 2008, it did not in 2014, and it will not in 2022.
Definitively not the same level of sanctions. But i guess you didn't care reading and comparing in detail before posting.

Why does japan need to get involved in this thing? It's not your fight...Nobody cares about your "sanctions" anyways, you'll only create enemies.
Did it come to your mind that Japan has a territory conflict with Russia and is military supported by the US for all regional disputes ?

we can constantly reshape the borders if we look back in History. When do we stop ? Are we allowed to consider the roman empire ?

lets start to live with Covid as we do the Flu.
You mean let the covid go wild and generate new dangerous variants such as the BA2 ?
Very wise !

All recent decisions lead to accepting less foreigners on the japanese soil (pandemic, trainees abuse) whereas the most direct solution would be to clean up the internal mess.
Sakoku's nostalgics i guess

Unfortunately, early research indicates the ba.2 variant may be significantly more severe than the omicron strain.
i tried, seems they don't get the notion of variant reservoir when you live "with" the virus (ie letting it go wild)
0 ( +1 / -1 )
This is completely false. If you want a test, you can get a test.
you're completely wrong.
A strong testing strategy is to make tests mandatory. Saying "get a test if you want" (and keep contaminating others if you don't want) is not wanting to know the real infection rate.
-5 ( +6 / -11 )
Cap or not, it does not matter. Omicron is very infectious
You measure infection rate by testing so yes, capping matters if you want to know how a variant is infectious.
Fortunately for Japan, other countries did enough testing to bring the information to light.

There is no limit or shortage or cap on tests and anyone saying otherwise is making up stories.
your story reveals there's no contact tracing ... hence, they're not looking for potential cases, hence automatic capping
-9 ( +5 / -14 )
Hasn't reached it's 20k peak and is steadily falling.
The test capping is preventing cases to go above 20k.
