Posted in: Koike says postponed Olympics should be held 'by all means' See in context

Olympic Minister states: the Olympics should be held "at any cost" The cost estimates have recently been estimated between double and triple the original $7 Billion used for the bid to get the Olympics to Tokyo... Who will pay for the final 'at any cost'??? Hashimoto-san?

Posted in: Downloads of Japan's COVID-19 tracing app slow to 7.7 mil See in context

Read somewhere that 44M yen was used to develop this app. In theory it could be useful but if positive test patients don’t register, (only 27 people that tested positive have registered themselves). Complete waste of time folks unless all positive cases are entered.

Posted in: Japan to test 10,000 people for coronavirus antibodies See in context

On NHK: Tokyo just announced 'only' 9 new cases today. But of course they did not mention that the number of tests conducted over May 11-13 in Tokyo; 10, 10, 17 for a total of 37!!! So if the results take 2 days from submission, 9 positive cases out of 10 tests!

This needs to be 10,000 tests a day, just in Tokyo alone!
