What resctrictions? Other than no large events going on (although some have e.g. Aichi) there are;nt any restrictions. 70% are going oncrowded trains to their office, bars are open, travel within the country is ok.

As the majority of the comments here prove Biden point and reason the rules have to be made - you cannot reason with idots. These are supposed 'adults' and they are destroying the 'freedoms' of others for their idotic conspiracies.

There are no 'rules', unless you are entering from another country (but if were connected to olympics, then those 'rules' didn't apply) Any 'rules' inside the country were obserbed the same as riding your bike using an umbrella - basically ignored.

Same with testing - 97,000 per day capacity, barely 10% of that is used each day.

The tests published by the J gov do not include the private test numbers BUT private test-derived positve cases ARE added to the positive cases publised by J Gov.

Been saying this for over a year - also the testing capacity for Tokyo alone went from ~60,000 to 97,000 about 6 months ago but nothing was mentioned about it in the media. The joke is that at max 10% of that is utilized while they ignore the general population from testing. It shows that they have their heads in the sand. However if you attempt to come in here from outside the country you are tested and tracked like a prisoner. Their lax attitude to the population and testing inside the border means this will only drag on and on....

39 vials were discovered with the problem. Company 'Rovi' in Spain is the source.

Reckless Today 05:10 pm JST 'Testing dropped about 3,000 per day so almost 40% positive rate.....'
I thought that too but since a few weeks ago when the figures suddeny jumped I found out later that the private testing positive cases are now being added into these numbers. They don't add in the private testing numbers, just the + cases they find, so % rate is bit elusive now, but probably alot more than the 8.3% it was for the ~16 months until they made this change.

So it's a quasi-bubble? A bubble with some small holes in it, but still really is a bubble, honest gov!

If anyone thinks these establishments are acting in malice by 'ignoring' the 'state of quasi-thing' , they are not being given any financial help from the 'paper pushers' (they have applied but nothing has been given) so as landlords and utilties companies still demand payment, they are left with NO CHOICE but to remain open.

Lets not be so niave. Anyone is welcome anywhere and at anytime, if they are suitably wealthy. You can see yourself the amount of private aviation traffic going all over the world with their 'elite' passengers.

Olympics not political? Besides this crass act, the Belarus athlete's treatment, USA allowed to stay in thier own hotel,GB allowed to skirt around vaccination / quarantine 'rules' .... the list goes on...

No. tested conducted on Sunday - 2,811 .. this literally doesn't add up for over the last week and it really is apparent in the data given from last 2 Sunday's. Makes zero sense.

".... 30 people involved with the Games have so far been treated for "heat illness"
'heat illness' is minutes away from heatstroke for crying out loud. Yesterday at 11am in the olympic staduim it was 39c whil 33c outside the stadium, it's beyond madness this 'go on at any cost' circus.

No one seems to acknowledge the numbers are not from Sunday's testing alone but retrocatively added from previous days or weeks. Will this continue is the next question.
-8 ( +1 / -9 )
Sunday was 3061 tests so 93% positive rate? Is that believable?
28 ( +38 / -10 )
Today's number of 3,000 can't be right - the number tested is from Sunday and was 3,060. so 100% rate?

Thought he was irresponsible from the clickbait headline but learning he has recovered from COVID then he already has the antibodies required, unless he is 80 years old and required a 'booster' jab which I am sure he is not. Amazing how inconvienient facts are pushed aside for the sake of a witch-hunt and sensationalist headlines. And then you wonder why noone takes 'news' seriously anymore?

Reminder that there is daily testing capacity of 97,000 in Tokyo, they use barely 10% of that and still the number of positve cases increases substantially. Few weeks ago it was ~9% now closer to ~20% of those tested. You don't need a PhD in odd-numbers to know that if they tested even 3x or 5x , just how many more cases are out there. Just watch who the scapegoat will be this time, it will have to be a fairly large and convenient scapegoat, I can't think what could possibly be, hmmm, what will it be???

They will have carried out more tests on these people during the short time they are here than all the testing combined in Tokyo during last 2 years. Perhaps an exageration, but heck, they are testing more in this 'village' than all of Tokyo PER DAY. These tests are the quick antigen and follow up PCR are required to confirm if positive, wonder if this is what is being reported, can it be confirmed?

Wonder if it works flawlessly here, people with darker skin tones have caused the system to mis-judge the identity of the individual in other settings.Am not meaning anything sinister here, just pointing out technical limitation of the system which has been found before.

The incompetence continues unabaited. Isn't this the same (redacted) who was complaining about slow vaccine rollout? Yes, here's the headline from 13th May 2021 - "Japan vaccine chief blames drug approval system for slow inoculation drive"

Yesterday I posted a joking/saracastic comment about how the jgov had no clue on how rein in the cases and would just fly the jets over Tokyo and today I read - 競技大会開会日となる7/23(金)、東京都内を中心に編隊による展示飛行を行います。 When a joke becomes reality, where to next?!?
