Posted in: Record 98 pregnant women in Tokyo had COVID-19 in July: study See in context

That's where the problem lies in Japan. The rule is made that mild covid patients cannot be admitted without giving thought to other issues like complications in pregnancy. The hospitals are following the rules blindly, which resulting in a lack of empathy.

Why does everyone need to be tested, rather should test everyone who needs a test? Money and time do not grow in trees.

There is an another NRA (National Restaurant Association) in the USA. NRA does not want to pay their employee a minimum wage rather left them to survive by throwing away money. I personally feel tipping is a bad culture. I find it is disrespectful, even when I pay for it. It is also a job like any other job. Sometimes people argue in favour of tipping for a better service. Their job is to serve you nor to entertain you. Just pay them what they deserve according to federal law. If it requires to increase in the food price, increase it.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 5,405 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 25,876 See in context

The actual number of cases is far more. There is no point in debating. There is no published seroprevalence study so far from the government. Our University (UTokyo) did some study almost a year back. Unfortunately, the results are still unknown even to the participants. Recently, I was reading about an extensive seroprevalence study conducted in India. Antibodies have been found in nearly 70% (1 billion) cases where their reported value is just 32 million even though they (India) have tested almost 2.5 times more per million than Japan. However, we can not equate with them there is a huge difference in living standards and basic health infrastructure.

We really need to impose restrictions on the driving age and consistent evaluation of driveability. There are many such unfortunate incidents in the recent past.

It is not the farmer who makes a better living from these auctions. It is the corporate that makes the profit. It also increases the regular market price, which makes it almost unaffordable for the general public.

To add further, Narinder Batra, president of the Indian Olympic Association, I just searched about him. He is a businessman, closely associated with the current ruling party, and played hockey at the college level. I guess this explains all.

Posted in: India protests 'unfair' Tokyo Olympic rules for COVID-hit nations See in context

It is nothing to do with the athletes. It seems to me Japan govt restricted the number of visitors along with the athletes. Many politicians in the name of sports administrators plan to have a free trip to Tokyo with the Government's money. It is their free lunch, which is at stake. By the way, how many medals India expects to win?

Modi is doing everything possible to contain the spread of this evil...........................

Modi is doing everything possible to make life miserable for his people. It is for the Indian people to decide whether they want such an incompetent pm to lead. I do follow a little bit of Indian politics. It is all, religion caste, and ultranationalism. I do not see any real agenda for improving the lives of common people.
