Posted in: Japan starts accepting applications for 'vaccine passports' See in context

What’s the point of them if one still has to quarantine for 2 weeks when they return? If one tests negative upon their return then it should be done.

Who exactly has enough time off of work blow 2+ weeks just to sit around when they are fully vaccinated?

Bach should really cancel the games. He is going to get a lot of “Chinese” people hurt or worse.

You know what I do when I’m stressed? Actually it doesn’t matter. I sure as heck don’t sexually assault people though.

Japan will impose tougher rules on athletes and staff participating in the Tokyo Olympics from countries hit by the highly contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus 

Good call Japan. Let’s start with you first then shall we?

Police in Oarai, Ibaraki Prefecture, have arrested a 39-year-old Indonesian man 

Relevance? What does the fact that he is Indonesian have to do with the crime committed? He would be arrested regardless of race/nationality.

Why don’t news stories specify each time the perpetrator is Japanese?

Look Tokyo, we’d be willing to go along with this if you weren’t in the same breath also pushing the Olympics.

You don’t get to have cake and eat it.

Can you blame them? The government, whose job is to protect the welfare of the people is actively working against them. On top of long hours, low wages and the bodies continuing to pile up?

Posted in: Tokyo reports 732 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 5,230 See in context

Well it’s back up again. This is why I don’t understand Tokyo and Osaka being so confident when the numbers go down for a single day.

Thats great and all, but we have to look at averages over time not just a single day.

At any rate, Osaka has the highest number of dead and now people in their 20s to 30s are being found dead their homes. What does it matter if it’s up or down?

People are dying.

Another failing of the Japanese government. Every possible box the Japanese screwed up and now everyday citizens are suffering.

Its criminal. LDP cronies should be in jail over this.

Well you are correct Kono on that. If only Japan had a year or so to get everything in place.

Oh wait, it did and you squandered it.

So is the pandemic over yet? I remember Abe and Taro saying very plainly that this was over? So how is this possible that there are 1,010 new cases?

I don't think you know what ambassadors actually do. Here's a hint: their job doesn't include deciding the country's fiscal policy.

Check, tongue-in-cheek. There’s your answer.

Posted in: Man shot by police officer dies in Nagoya hospital See in context

Genuine question, do officers in Japan not carry stun guns/tazers? Japanese police are pretty good about not discharging their weapons but isn't there at least one more option available to them besides a lethal weapon?

Posted in: Commuter rush seen despite 3rd coronavirus state of emergency See in context

How many times does this need to be said? It has to come from the top down. Not the other way around? I’d be happy to telework but the prefectural government and corporations are forcing workers to go in.

Stop trying to pin this on individuals.

Are you more likely to get the virus when eating and drinking with many other people? Yes.

Let’s not pretend that it doesn’t spread in office spaces, schools and universities as well people start getting lax on mask wearing as well.

The pandemic and the fact that it’s this bad is all on the Japanese government.

Posted in: Suga to declare state of emergency in Osaka; no decision on Tokyo See in context

@Fiddlers

Absolutely right. It was a two birds with one stone had Japan spent its time vaccinating. People stop getting sick, stop spreading the sickness, no need to close things down and Olympics as icing on the cake.

Instead they chose some awkward balancing act of “Please social distance, but also Go To campaign by going out and spending money.”

He who chases two hares catches neither.

Posted in: Osaka request for emergency will include store closures, online school classes See in context

And of course you forgot to mention the UK variant which brought into Japan from a foreigner.

Incorrect. It was brought into Japan by a Japanese person that had been to the UK and failed to social distance.

Japan has curbed foreign travel for over a year now. Your “It’s foreigners.” Excuse doesn’t hold water.

Wish government and media would painting this as though it were the common people that are at fault for this.

People have to go to work, school, etc..

If we want tea change, put resources into inoculating the population.

Posted in: Tokyo, Osaka consider asking gov't to issue another state of emergency See in context

What does that mean though? “It’s officially a State of Emergency.”

Okay. That means, what? They haven’t given details to what that means. People are still being asked to come into work and school. If anything is to change, this stuff has to come from the top down.

Posted in: Suga to designate Tokyo for stronger anti-virus steps as infections spike See in context

“Doing nothing hasn’t worked, so we are going to try more half measures.”

The J’gov’t doesn’t seem to understand how any of this works.

"Reducing the flow of people is key in preventing infections," she said.

Wrong madam, wrong. Vaccinating people is how we stop this.

Posted in: Osaka declares COVID medical emergency with 878 new cases See in context

Can someone explain what a “Medical Emergency” is in this context? I feel like that’s been the case the entire time.

This entire saga has received several different labels and the government on a prefectural level as well as a national one has not been clear at all.

State of Emergency, Red Stage, Yellow Stage, Medical Emergency. So what is different this time?

Isn’t the norm for school lunches to overcook everything and add no flavor whatsoever as to not offend the parents of the children. Then they go and do this? Numb skulls.

I'm assuming the 17 year old couldn't keep his mouth shut? Millennials...........

If you're getting it, just shut it and enjoy it.

Millennial? 1994 was quite some time ago. There is no way a 17 year old today is a Millennial.

You might want to avoid othering language of other generations. It’s propaganda made to divide people.

Also, statutory rape is still rape. It’s exploitation of a minor.
