More virtually signaling from the Hollywood crowd. They should focus on good content as that has been lacking for decades.

But TV commercials are the worst as they couple various husband and wife combinations you would never see in real life.

Propaganda gotta end, COVID presents little risk to kids. For that matter, it presents little risk to the vast majority of people.

Fatality rate in Japan is 1% of OFFICIAL cases, which means it is a lot lower when you account for unofficial cases, which is perhaps 5-10x greater than official cases.

theFu- they'll use class warfare to get it passed. Then in a couple years, it will apply to everyone. They're going after IRAs and 401ks.

bass- Biden will provide the super rich with other ways to protect and increase their money.

"Reverse Robinhood" means the rich will get richer at our expense.

Clippety- I think you're right, though many States in the U.S. use highly effective therapeutics, just in case there is a threat to hospital capacity.

But with case counts almost zero, makes me wonder if herd immunity has been reached. Some are worried about a spike, but Japan is now highly vaccinated and has already endured the delta spike.

Posted in: Scholars urge Japan to restart issuing visas to foreign students See in context

Yotoyama- understand the distrust of outsiders by Japan. But there is no health reason to continue delaying reopening travel, especially to students and business. At least start there, with tourism to follow.

Science shows that Japan has almost eliminated the virus, its vulnerable are vaccinated, they have had plenty of community spread, requiring vaccinations or negative tests for travelers will provide another layer of protection, and there are plenty of highly effective therapeutics, if necessary.

In short, the risk of an increase in cases from travel is small and if, by chance, people start getting seriously ill, they have tools to manage it.

Posted in: Biden says U.S. would defend Taiwan against China See in context

Unsurprisingly, the White House later backtracked on Joe’s comment:

“The U.S. defence relationship with Taiwan is guided by the Taiwan Relations Act. We will uphold our commitment under the act, we will continue to support Taiwan’s self-defence, and we will continue to oppose any unilateral changes to the status quo,” the spokesperson said.

So there is no commitment to defend Taiwan.

If you think information from Truth Social is flawed, just ignore it.

Posted in: Japan to begin trials of COVID-19 vaccination proof at eateries See in context

Zichi- "Civic duty" to get vaccinated? Vaccines only protect the vaccinated person. Sounds like you swallowed the "pandemic of the unvaccinated" propaganda- hook, line, and sinker.

Do people have a "civic duty" to wear a seatbelt? Not use drugs? Not drink alcohol? Not smoke? By the way, these activities are more risky than not getting vaccinated for most.

Posted in: Kishida says only LDP capable of protecting Japan from security threats See in context

LDP has done a horrible job, based on how it has responded to COVID by following the propaganda promoting fear and vaccines. This is hardly to the benefit of the Japanese people, who face a minimal threat from COVID.

You don't need a Vaccine Minister if you don't have a virus. Japan should reconsider its addiction to vaccines. Other countries have found they are doing fine without them.

@Ingvar

Interesting point about Singapore, Israel, and U.S. experiencing a spike in cases after their vaccination drives.

One BIG difference, however, is that Japan has already seemingly experienced the "delta spike". It hit in the midst of their vaccination drive.

If Japan experiences another spike, vaccines, not variants, will indeed be scrutinized closely as the cause.

Posted in: COVID-19 cases plummeting in Japan; doctors puzzled why See in context

Interesting that they don't want to consider herd immunity. After all, if there was no threat of COVID, what would the medical community and politicians do?

Before Delta, trend in the U.S. followed the same pattern- steep rise followed by steep decline. I'm guessing a combination of community spread and vaccines kicking in ushered in herd immunity. Plus Japan, with a healthier population, likely has fewer people to infect.

Posted in: Social distancing fans See in context

6% of U.S. COVID deaths are "from" COVID according to the CDC. The rest "had" COVID or were "presumed" to have COVID when they died. Figure has been greatly exaggerated by hospitals to increase profits and by politicians to promote fear.

Xamurai is right- if you're at risk, take precautions. If going to a crowded event is risky, stay home. But it is senseless to have restrictions on everyone else.

For a difference in perspective, show a picture of a football game in the U.S. Up to 100,000 fans, shoulder to shoulder, most with no masks. COVID cases have been plummeting for the past two months.

Posted in: Tokyo court disrupted by hundreds of maskless anti-vaxxers See in context

Awesome job, Japan! It is always good to speak out against perceived tyranny.

Vulnerable people should get the vax. But why would you force vaccinations on those not at risk?

Japan has likely reached herd immunity.

If there is a spike in cases, hospitalizations will likely be low due to natural immunity and vulnerable people getting vaccinations. If hospital capacity is a concern, there are highly effective therapeutics.

Compared to other nations, Japan is at low-risk for COVID.
