No. Absolutely not. I already got the first 2. That’s enough. I’m not buying into this perpetual dose and vaccine passport nonsense.

Good. Seems the vaccines are doing their job and people can finally start living a normal life again no thanks to this SoE nonsense.

Young people, by and large, are really weary of authority. If you think you're going to convince them to take these vaccines you're really out of touch. Best you can do is target all other age groups and let the young ones have their fun.

That's the problem of federal governements. From one state/prefecture to another, the rules can be different depending on the governor.
It's such a bad system if you want my opinion.
That's why it's your opinion then.
Any system that moves more towards decentralization of power and not toward centralized power is a good thing.

While their deeds need never be forgotten as to learn from them, nothing else about these monsters is of any importance. Who cares where their remains went. Similar to bin Laden, it simply doesn't matter once they're gone.

"In a characteristically Japanese way, we have all but brought this epidemic under control in the last month and a half. Surely, it shows the power of the Japan model."

It's time for Mr. Kono to step aside and let those who can handle this task finish it.
In Japan? There is nobody! The whole government is a big joke. There is not one competent person in elected office.
While most of the rest of the first world are enjoying themselves again finally, Japan still sits on its laurels and wonders "doushiyou?"

I told an American friend about the entire covid saga over here in Japan. The constant back and forth of lukewarm state of emergencies, the feigned care, the vaccine fiasco, health ministers getting caught going to night clubs, no alcohol, reduced trains during rush hour, big giant vaccination complex in the middle of Tokyo, etc. etc. etc.
He thought about it all for a bit and said "as messed up as things were handled here (he's from Texas), I am genuinely worried for you. That sounds scary"
The world is starting to tune into this with the Olympics coming up. Time is running low Japan. Your fate as a future player in this world is up on display. Choose wisely.

And who largely paid for all of this? The citizens and residents of Tokyo and Japan. Their opinion doesn't matter, but their money does. And what's better is we had no choice but to pay (tax).
This same scam has been going on forever, but the IOC are the only ones to actually just blatantly tell you straight up "Eff you, pay us"

Don't the vaccines have a time limit too? So basically they are just going to waste.
And news some months back said that they accidently wasted a few thousand vaccines because the refrigeration unit broke...ha!
Celebrate good times! Cmon!

First of all. Every death is tragic. Every death related to covid is sad and probably many could have been preventable.
That being said, even IF the death numbers in Japan are 10 times worse than reported, that's still what...1,000 in the entire country? I'd still say compared to the vast majority of the world, Japan has done quite well despite the half baked prevention measures.

Suga always has this face like he has no clue what he's doing and it was just "his turn" to be PM. This will be his legacy. This whole hand wringing and "doushiyou" attitude always come back and bite the people in the rear, while the ones doing it always skirt by and continue to do so.
This half measure in between stuff is worse than a full lockdown for a short time, or just not doing anything at all. It allows the virus to do its thing, while simultaneously destroying businesses and people's livelihoods in the process. Bravo!

Cases like this is where "eye for an eye" punishment should exist. See how she likes having boiling water poured on her. See who cries then.

Ho hum. Another day, another useless number.
How many people died from covid? How many were seriously ill? What were their overall state of health upon contracting covid in the first place? This is the important information.
Otherwise, it's as useless as reporting how many people caught the common cold.

This trend of people wanting to control other people's lives "for their own good!" is outright disturbing. We are entering a dangerous world where the fuddys who want to control every aspect of your life are starting to get their way. Resist at all costs.

I've been out and about and sure haven't noticed any reduced numbers. And good on them. It's been beautiful and mostly sunny (few spouts of rain). This whole 3rd state of emergency is a big joke and the people know it. So they are openly defying it. I say good.
This whole thing is a big sham and those who are still advocating for people to be shut ins and locked in their homes should be ashamed of themselves.
Get your vaccine when it's available but until then live your life. Don't let the "nanny state" people have their way.

I find it astonishing the number of people who call for complete shut downs.
It's proven they do not work.
The WHO even says they aren't a good idea.
People have to work to survive and provide for themselves or their families. I would love to work remotely and would have no issue doing so. But sometimes your employer can't do it or won't allow it. It sucks but that's reality. Some jobs require the person to be there. People can't afford not to work.Japanese government is doing nothing to help promote and incentivize remote work. So until that happens, we can't just "shut it down". Unless you want the economy to tank beyond repair.
Part of me wonders if the people calling for complete lockdowns actually work real jobs. Or understand how economics works. Yes the virus sucks but the world cannot shut down completely for this virus. Especially if lockdowns prove to be more harm than help.
So downvote all you want, but you got to understand how reality works.

Just cancel it and be done with it. Sorry Japan, but as fate would have it, you ain't gonna get your Olympics. Move on and focus on Riewa-ing some more.

They are going to consider whether or not to have a meeting to perhaps determine if they should decide to consider having another state of emergency or not.
