Even within the shackles of capitalist economy, this guy being taxed way more so that he couldn't afford such joy rides and suggests a much healthier society. In his place a specialist who can carry out useful, practical or even groundbreaking work the state sent would be evidence of a much healthier society and a society moving forward.

With well over 90% of the population fully vaccinated and cases jump....... And virusrex among others will probably still insist the Big Pharma concoctions they are calling "Covid 19 vaccines" actually work.

Posted in: At least one dead from Omicron as UK boosts response See in context

Are we still on this? Apart from Sputnik V, the vaccines don't work. The efficacy or lack thereof combined with the short time period they offer even that level of efficacy means they are never going to bring about herd immunity. They might be useful in preventing the hospitals being overloaded at any given time (though that seems not to be the case judging by many countries) but on the other hand, they'll only prolong the agony.

This has happened to me before. Not so much "questioning" but they randomly stop one for an ID check. In Japan, they are allowed to do it with foreigners. Everyone has to make sure not to be polite to them and to demand they present their police ID for inspection first.

South Africa. Only 25% are fully vaccinated. At the current rate of vaccination in South Africa, it is estimated 70% of the population will be immunized by June 2023. That is 19 months from today. 2023.

Variants spread among the unvaccinated and crossover.

@Richie

You are so full of it, I can almost smell your stench from here. Makes Joey Biden smell like your favorite hostess at the start of her shift.

We don't know what % of unvaxxed or vaxxed people are spreading this "variant" in Africa but we know in Europe and Asia, so far it's 100% vaxxed with the Big Pharma concoctions who are spreading it.

If prevents Omicron from coming to Japan then it is worth it.

It's probably already here but they haven't named it yet. We could give it a go. "Pfizer and Moderna Disease" could be called the "Phimodi variant". It's know to cause heart attacks. Thankfully I'm fully inoculated against that disease or that variant.

Xi (uppercase Ξ or Ξ, lowercase ξ; Greek: ξι) is the 14th letter of the Greek alphabet. It is pronounced [ksi] in Modern Greek, and generally /zaɪ/ or /ksaɪ/ in English.[1] In the system of Greek numerals, it has a value of 60. Xi was derived from the Phoenician letter samekh

I see. So I wonder if the WHO will reach the "Xi variant" in order for Big Pharma to make excuses for the lack of efficacy of their dud concoctions.

Hopefully, the vaccines will still provide powerful protection against the new variant. Dr. Scott Gottlieb (former FDA commissioner and Pfizer board member) suggested they would.

The experience of Singapore (among others) proves after a few months they offer no protection at best. Unless they protect one from coronavirus by killing them before the virus has a chance to infect them.

However, the researchers have decided not to publish their findings, as they are concerned about losing money from the drug industry, alleged the doctor on GB News.

This censorship is costing lives! When this is over, I think the censors should and hope they will face criminal prosecution.

I'm inclined to agree. Although the CCP is much worse, due to their disinterest in preserving human rights. Capitalist governments have been bad, the CCP has been much, much worse.

i agree. Disappearing super-rich capitalists for not paying tax is far worse than mass homelessness, lack of social services due to all the money going to foreign wars, flagrant but legalized corruption and etc.

China would be a nice place if it weren't for the CCP.

Japanese, Europeans and Americans are deluding themselves if they think people aren't sitting around Harbin, Shenzhen, Xian saying something to end of, "USA, Japan, Europe would be really nice if not for the pig capitalist rulers who have delivered nothing but worsening mass poverty and escalating war for the last 30~40 years."

I think they would be justified in saying that......

Japan isn't the worst place to live, nor is it the best.

Japan is generally a nice place. China is also nice. Japanese, Europeans and Americans are deluding themselves if they think 'their' (working people have no country) countries or cities are much nicer than China or Chinese cities in any respect. Unless unfettered access to Facebook and Google is really important to them.

They have a bunch of pompous bourgeois sitting around trading off on what city is ranked for what category like a bunch of 10 year-olds trading baseball cards.

However, as you know, nobody wants to live in any city in China.

No one except a few billion people from all over the world. I'd bet more than want to live in Japan. Shanghai is a pretty bad place, IMO but Guangzhou, Chengdu, Kunming for example are really nice places. I'm sure some of the smaller cities, with "only" a population of 5 or 6 million are really nice though never been there myself.

I think a lot of Japanese people still like to delude themselves that Japan is so much more a better place to live than China. Ditto for Americans and Europeans.

Posted in: Japan eyes administering COVID vaccine to children aged 5-11 in Feb See in context

Data from clinical trials conducted by Pfizer in the United States and other countries show that administration of a third adult dose of the vaccine was 90.7 percent effective in preventing COVID-19 infections in children aged 5 to 11.

Well, there you have it. And in adults it was 95% effective in preventing infection, 100% effective against severe infection for 'at least 2 years'. Clinical trials for which the results were published in peer reviewed scientific journals demonstrated that. They also demonstrated Oxycontin isn't addictive. We have no reason believe, no matter what Dr Fauci says, any of this is false.

Yey! Another country to add to the list of places where people vaccinated in Japan can enter without quarantine, only to spend 10-14 days at home upon return. Genius.

Obviously the are confident in the vaccines they are using. Not so for Japan. Data out of many countries shows Japanese authorities are correct not be confident in the vaccines in use in Japan.

Good luck with Sinovac "vaccine"

Most have been vaccianted with Sputnik V which actually works and has proven to be perfectly safe. The Chinese vaccines are the second best after Sputnik. Safe but not as effective. Though much more effective than the Big Pharma concoctions.

Economically Japan is highly advanced. The most advanced economy in the world? Maybe Singapore, Hong Kong, or small EU states like Holland or Denmark, non EU mother of all rogue states Switzerland or oil rich Norway are close or more economically advanced.

And it's perfectly according to Marx's basic analysis, economic growth has hit a wall, pretty much without any prospect for significant, lasting improvement. Capitalism has run it's course. Now it has nowhere to go but to the dustbin of history, if history can survive capitalism.

If it is better, it's for a few weeks at best before dropping to zero within 6 months.

the science indicates that after 6 months the immunity is literally less than zero. They are more susceptible to the virus than if they had never gotten vaxxed.

It makes those Asian nations occupied and targets which otherwise wouldn't be.

Despite what the censors want I think everyone in Japan should think about Sputnik V. The data coming out of many countries demonstrates it's over 90% effective agaist the virus and every known variant. If people don't trust Russian science, that's great. No one is asking them to do otherwise. But why not give us a choice? For the people who want the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, let's do everything possible to make sure they can get it. For people who want Sputnik V, why not give is a choice?

I would not want to put anything from Russia in my body.

No one is asking you to do that. Just that many people vis-a-vis Big Pharma feel the opposite way. Mostly people with a border close to Russia who have experienced Soviet medical care and don't pay any attention to corporate media. But now it's more serious, I don't care if you die from Covid but in the absence of the only safe and highly effective vaccine, you will infect 100 people before you succumb.
