Posted in: Japan to lower COVID-19 to flu status in spring See in context

I have not worn mask working in the office. Not while I am out and about like jogging or to and from station. I do wear masks when in public transportation and at concerts etc..We have entertained guests at home too… Our guests are vaxxed and got COVID at least once. We are not.

Vaccines? Maybe

Masks? Maybe

etc etc…

why do we all fight over all these?

Common sense? Absolutely.

i am still not vaxxed. I have been using masks when I think it is necessary and this had been the case before this pandemic, ie when I was allergic to the environment or when I was sneezing or coughing (which rarely happened. Keep your hands reasonably clean and keep a healthy balanced lifestyle … all these help. I won’t get any vax until am comfortable with it. I was vaxxed for the seasonal flu though. Once every year around mid Nov.

I love grilled mochi then wrapped with nori…so tasty. It also goes well with a thick slice of meatloaf

I think mask has been the working for me… coz I have never been vaccinated. Many I know got infected even though they have been multiple vaxxed and also masked…

Good. Why change Article 9 just because of additions to your arsenal? Offensive weapon can’t be used for defensive purpose? Great that Japan can better prepare. What good is a country that feels wrong about having arms to defend while having to depend on foreign forces?

Posted in: Many popular TV shows of the 1960s, '70s and '80s might be considered offensive today for one reason or another. What TV shows that are popular today do you think will be seen as offensive by audiences 50 years from now? See in context

I think shows like Mind Your Language would be remade in better picture quality. I have been rewatching this series these days with so much fun.

“Imagine being in Tokyo and trying to move around with all this going on?”

Posted in: Japan reports 92,741 new coronavirus cases See in context

If you care about the numbers… the week on week decline has slowed the last week or so I think so not a good thing. Many old people still died because of this, which is sad, as probably many of them, if not all, had been vaccinated. Around 30 people died in Tokyo everyday the last few month is not a good thing to look at.

“I wish there would be comparisons to the same day of the week for the previous week as comparisons to days within the same week are less relevant.”

The information is always in the link in the article. WoW, it was down 35.6% if you want to know.

“If anyone would like less limitation in your life (like wishing to travel internationally) you may want to stay with the prescribed vaccine schedule.”

I wouldnot want to have a bit of “freedom” to travel now at the expense of injecting something am not comfortable with in my body let alone knowing nothing if it has any long term detrimental impact etc

Posted in: Japan may start inoculation against Omicron by end of September See in context

“The ministry panel this month decided to make Omicron-specific COVID-19 boosters available to all who have completed at least the first two-shot regimen and to make preparations so the additional inoculation can begin in mid-October or later.”

Thanks for this. I have still not been vaccinated.

“No comment one way or another on his claim. But I cannot wrap my head around how a 14 year old would be engaged in prostitution in Japan unless the parents were negligent. Makes me wonder what kind of environment she grew up in.”

Maybe Shibuya if you wonder

Meaningless in terms of potential infection spreading prevention. Should just scrap all restrictions to let it run wild.

Posted in: Kishida resumes work remotely after contracting COVID-19 See in context

I think masks work for me. Don’t have to be Armageddon type of masks. Just regular disposable masks. Be aware of your surrounding, surfaces you touch. Keep hands clean. All these are normal practices even before COVID. I don’t wear masks when out doing sports, drinking eating sleeping. I do wear masks while in public transportation, out shopping at stores and malls. This has been working for me the last 2 years.
