Let's also mention we're only talking about the eligible population here ( 12 years old).
Hence it is normal countries with a younger population is less vaccinated.
A ranking of eligible vaccinated population would make more sense.

Yeah, let's take only G7 countries as comparison.
Otherwise Japan would be 26th behing Korea, Spain, Portugal, Chile, Denmark, Belgium, Ireland, Cambodia ...

Japan has really led the way with overcoming the virus. Lockdowns were not necessary. It has been life and work as normal. Well done.
Anti-lockdown strategies didn't work in Netherlands or Sweden, countries which aimed for herd immunity at first. Japan would have done lockdowns if the constitution allowed it.
Many data scientists believed Japan numbers were and are ten times underestimated.
Nothing to praise here.

Amazing no journalist cares talking about positivity rate or reproduction number, more realistic indicators that don't show any "drop" but a regular decrease along with the increase of vaccination.
Similar pattern in western countries.
Time to stop with the "japanese special model" with numbers cherry picked.

You can't explain anything with partial data.
From the beginning, Japan produces untransparent, incomplete, irregular data.
The decentralized, privated heath system add to the confusion reporting unverified numbers.
No surprise nobody understand the situation.
Remember may 2020 : "the japanese model has defeated the coronavirus" (Abe) ...

Electric vehicles + nuclear power plants is the realistic solution to the global warming and the gasoline importation dependency.

Patient numbers are more reliable as corona indicators.
Wrong. In Japan, impossible to have reliable data from private clinics.

Also discovering their food supply rely on importation from foreign countries while the JA Group lobby tries to make them believe the opposite.

It's an announcement to counter-strike the stupid flyskam knowing that the airline industry represents only 2% of the C02 emissions on the planet.
If the next step is to build electric planes with electricity produced by charcoal power plants (hello Germany), it's totally stupid.
Textile industry and digital services pollute more than planes for example.
Let's focus on priorities here.

Easy! Over 70% of the population has had at least 1 jab, and over 60% has had 2. Ever hear of herd immunity? Scientists were raving about it last year, and it's almost been achieved here.
Wow, then it looks like the vaccine here is much more efficient than in any other country in the world !
Is there a secret ingredient added only for Japan ? Miso ? Wasabi ?

It will be interesting to see how the number of infections across Japan develops in the coming weeks.
with test numbers under control, you can't come to any conclusion

Japan is defying the laws of epidemiology and data science ... or bending them ... ?

Aussies should look at the US Navy LCS program to see how USA compete in terms of compliance with a contract :
For many, the LCS has become something of a poster child for what's wrong with defense procurement, but the fact that these ships, envisioned to be cheap and ready to operate, cost as much to keep in the fleet as a destroyer, while struggling to even deploy on patrols, has taken that notion to a whole new level.
