Posted in: Japan test tour by 4 Thai people canceled after COVID infection See in context

When you test everyone, you get your positive cases, even this far along it's crazy and C19 wont be eradicated anytime soon. Vaccinated or not makes no difference unless you are 65+ or immuno-comprimised. This is the fact. There are potions for those that want them, we need to get on with life again for crying out loud. The rest of the world has moved on, Japan seems intent on staying firmly in 2020 for the foreseeable future.

The US are very close to hitting 1,000,000 covid related fatalities. China is by no means perfect but it's a shame the US choose to use this situation for political theatrics.

Posted in: China closes Guangzhou to most arrivals as virus outbreak spreads See in context

They covered up the initial alarm sounded by a brave Doctor (pls search it, if written the post would probably be removed) in October 2019.They did nothing to stop domestic or international travel in the first critcal weeks/months of the outbreak. They locked Wuhan down and some other provinces. It worked because, as we now know, the original covid wasn't as contagious. Now with Omicron the dynamics have changed and they are swimming up river with no paddle and inside paper boats named 'Sinopharm'. This isn't going to go well, basically.

Gotta put a halt to Golden Week for the 3rd time. Any way to make the 'numbers' look bad will be leveraged and you will comply with all the quasi-things.

It's much slower overall downtrend than for Delta, ~50k avg per day 1 month ago almost plateu here ~40k so will be interesting if reversing trend in next week or two. More positively though is the death rate is faster decline, ~60 per day avg for whole country, down from ~200 per day 1 month ago.

This story sums up japan culture so well. All about meaningless rules made up by people without any meaning to their life. Just 'work' for the sake of working - hence neverending redtape and waste.

Sorry, but this is taking the p.... I read reports that the 3rd shot would be good for several months even a year but then this malarky? We just have the 3rd and the 4th needed few months later? Got worsening side effects after each dose and am not getting any more.

Posted in: New measures helped avoid tragedy with shinkansen derailed by quake See in context

Incredible engineering / tech. After previous derailments happened during recent very strong earthquakes, enhancments were made to the rails themselves and to the train wheels (this section was updated) but even with these new measures this one train did derail but most importantly it has already stopped thanks to the tried and proven automatic detection systems in place. The shaking was unbelievable, there is a youtube video from a passanger inside the train and it is basacilly as if a truck has hit them. No-one in the train car shouted or panicked even though it was dark and they were being pummelled by the power of the earthquake. Amazing.

'Alleged' but named and their pictures are already published? 3 JP employees of an old JP securites company were found guilty of insider trading few years ago but they were let off because 'they didn't know it was actually insider trading' all swept under the carpet quickly.

At literally the same time, the last remaining airlines that were serving europe to Japan have cancelled their flights (ANA and JAL - they will fly cargo only now) Now only Finnair remains with 3 flights per week - how cruel can you be to dangle some hope in the media yet know this information that means they cannot acutally get here anyway?

Posted in: Japan's top business lobby calls for border controls to be eased more See in context

It's more than obvious given the policy of keeping foreign tourists out for what will be at least 3 years, that Japan sees it as completely acceptable. Only if other countries block Japanese from entering will this xenophobic dinasours do anything to reverse the current policy, as it is NOT based on any scientifc facts anymore.

Posted in: Kishida says Japan will ease border controls; daily entry cap to be raised to 5,000 See in context

For the entire duration of Omicron, no testing required for domestic travel, no restrictions worth a damn yet somehow travelling from abroad is used to show the only tangible 'tough stance' against it. Pathetic.

Was perplexed to see footage of a tsunami rushing in on the Tonga coastline at around 5pm that day but even 2 hours later the JMA site had no tsunami warning. They are being pedantic to call it 'tidal change' It WAS a tsunami event. But nope, if the goddam manual says the data doesn't match previous events, nothing is done.

Posted in: Japan extends entry ban on non-resident foreigners until end of February: Kishida See in context

So many kick-in-the-face things going on here. While 'outsiders' are banned from entry, among whom are students who have paid all fees for education or family members who fall through the wide visa-cracks. Those 'lucky' enough to be able to come back are forced into a 6-tatami room arrest even though they are vaccinated and did all tests before departure and on arrival. All the while, US army completley stuck their fingers up at Japan and all of us, they did not test, did not follow any rules or due care at all and brought Omicron into Okinawa (and likely from there the rest of country) but then also inside Japan everyone can come and go as they please, zero retrictions basically for 2 years. So the scapegoat in all of this is the 'outsider'

The democracy where rights of residents are denied to enter the country where they live and pay taxes in? That democracy? Key values where interred individuals are stripped of all human rights, abused and even die while in the custody (care?) of the government. Those key values?
