Posted in: Health minister urges Tokyo to remain vigilant as virus cases soar in Osaka See in context

"...even as the prefecture has toughened measures in an attempt to stem a sharp rebound in infections."

This tells you all you need to know at how completely clueless they are about the virus and how pathetic their 'toughened measures' are. Just like the boat that docked in Yokohama a year ago, they have learned zero about how to dealing with it other that paying lip service to the populous.

All those comments recently diriding others for pointing out the abismal testing numbers where are you? The cases seemed to be dropping yet you ignored (or didn't know?) that they stopped testing close contacts of confirmed cases several weeks ago. Many of those people would be asymptomatc and have been interacting with others and spreading it along.... so with only the most 'serious' are being accounted for recently, all the while it being spread by the asymptomatic proxies. Oh, and the icing on this tastless cake? The 'State of Emergency' that has gifted us this mess is to be 'lifted, according to the lastest anonnouncement of a possible anncouncment this Sunday.

Wining and dining IS how business is conduced, not just in Japan, but SE Asia and even in the West. Ethics? Give me a break, how niave can you be!

Political theatre - some persons want rid of Suga and these are the complicit acts taking place on the stage. Makes you wonder how powerful others were in the past that held power for much longer and through the same theatrics.

2.9 Trillion $$$ will be magically created in next month or so - in addition to the 8-odd Trillion $$$ already magiced up out of thin air in the last year alone in the US, this will further fuel the stock prices. The large corps have unfettered access to most of this liquidity and so they are winning at the casino, uhhhh.. I mean stonkmarket. For the rest of us, sure grab some stonks in the short term and ride the coat tails but perhaps alsolook into deflationary assets as a long term hedge against this crazy money printing from world goverments.

Less testing, less cases. But then to report it as to have you believe the virus just up and left for good ('lowest since December 28') without focusing on the low testing number? Part of the course isn't it.

I see better information and heart from most of the comments rather than the sensationalist articles! Nearly everyone has no choice but to got to work and live their lives, yet they are chastised for doing so by those in their ivory towers. Going through all the natural disasters that happen here on a yearly basis, it's always the people themsleves who make it though with determination and looking out for each other. Nothing but lip service from those .... (if I complete this sentence, it would be deleted!!!)

It was some payback against the atrocities UK made against Argentinians in the Falklands. It was more that a football game that day, and it was awesome. Maradona came from a family of 10, grew up in poverty where the only running water came from a hole in the roof. He is a legend and one of the greatest players of the game. RIP El Pibe de Oro.

Long term residents who have 'permanent residency' cannot vote. No voice. Yes, have basic rights but those are no where to found if cross the law. And if any further proof was needed, see how such people have been treated during this pandemic.

Posted in: Suga trips up with messy reversal on Go To Travel campaign See in context

Its unsettling how much these old men keep screwing things up. They should be retired long ago yet here they are, screwing up each and every moment. Since the boat docked in Yokohama back in March, they have shown time and time again how completely useless they are at handling any challenge. The goto silliness was flagged by many experts but, just like the boat fiasco, they were ignored until it was too late. They are getting paid for doing this + the backhanders et al ... Truely sickening. The Thailand youth have the right idea, kick out these goddam dinasours before they completely destroy everything.

Whats does 'highest alert out of four levels' actually mean? Are we going to see Rainbow bridge lit up in a nice romantic red color for a night? Is testing going to be ramped up and GoTo Spreadu campaigns be halted? Where are the main clusters from this increase coming from? Travel, restaurants, workplaces, schools, Uguisudani? Reading 'news' in these recent years turns people like me completey cynical. Headline, click, headline repeated a few times, ad revenue. Bye. Cynicalus Maximus !

Surpassing 1,000 last happened on Aug 21st. That's the hottest time of year. No evidence that the 'falling temperature' is causing this current spike. He's making an excuse to defelct from their 'go to' campaigns. The unbelieveable lethargy to testing makes the handling of covid as basically 'hide it under the rug'
