There are Carl's Jrs in Jiyugaoka, Akihabara and Diver City.
Is Carl's Junior still in Tokyo?

regarding point 3)
Problem is, you have two distinct populations when that was vaccinated and one that was not vaccinated. Therefore you have a treatment by variant interaction that’s going to confound anything that you could interpret as a decrease in mortality.
in addition people who received the vaccine are less likely to develop extreme symptoms and so the data on them is lacking as they never even went to the hospital or were tested.

1) The technique ignores the fact that two or more variants were present in a population at any given time. Replacement isn’t instantaneous but gradual.
2) if the data is a composite of vaccinated and unvaccinated people who tested positive for any of the variants, then of course, you would see a higher death rate for alpha, because there was no vaccine or effective treatments available at the time when alpha predominated.
3) the data needs to be parsed based on vax status for it to have any meaning.

Can you explain how you calculated those numbers, since variant by patient data is not complete, ie., they do not test all positive patients for the specific variant.
This meta-analysis article shows the mortality rates for alpha, beta, gamma, and delta variants.
To put it in numbers, omicron is significantly less lethal than previous variants. On a case fatality basis, 2.8% for alpha, 0.4% for delta, and 0.07% for omicron. The least deadly variant we've seen in Japan.

So we are supposed to simply surrender to Putin's "irrational behavior" in this and all future cases where Putin throws a tantrum? We've seen what happens when bad behavior is ignored or permitted, "Neville".
The ultimate changes in Russia will be brought from within, and those around Putin need to also see the humiliation and suffering unleashed on ordinary Russian citizens in order to realize that Putin is not the person to carry Russia into a productive future.
I hate what Putin is doing, but how do you negotiate that has one of the largest stockpile of nuclear warheads than any other nation and oh, by the way seems to be mentally compromised? You really think it’s a good idea for NATO to further piss this guy off? Think deeply now.

Didn’t we kinda already wait for a lot of this to happen before responding to it?
Don’t take any of what I said to mean “Lock the world down until all viruses are destroyed”. We need optimism, but cautious optimism. And I realize that means something different to each individual.

Can you give us a number of what constitutes an acceptable number of deaths, just so we know?
Will peak soon enough without hospitals being full and will notbe huge amount of deaths.

that's not how vaccines work, especially when dealing with something that produces virus-escape mutants.

Same......3 days of body aches and a 38 degree fever, plus the worry that the people I was out with now have it and spread it to their families.

Work really starting picking up in the latter half of 2021, plus wasn't traveling back to hometown twice a year, or anywhere else outside of Japan for that matter, so it "feels" like the bank account is happier.

The Japanese government will probably end up going with the Pfizer pill eventually over Merck. Merck's pill potentially can affect mammalian DNA along with it's ability to push mutagenesis during Covid virus RNA replication to a point that pretty much renders the copied viral RNA inactive.

Please provide a few names of the "experts", examples of the "high frequency", and proof of "the coverup and censoring". You seem to be privy to secret information....feel free to share.
Many experts are very concerned with the high frequency of adverse reactions and death observed with these vaccines and with the coverup and censoring of the data.

Some of the most vivid lucid dreams I have ever experienced accompanied the 38.3 fever after my second shot. Still unpacking what I was directing and visually interpreting in these dreams....would love to get a 3rd shot.

Maybe, it has nothing to do with politics and woke and PC or who loves Jesus or Zeus more.
Maybe the US team lost because, on that day, the team the US was playing against was just better overall.

Don't know how many times we have asked you to provide proof that Delta may be less deadly than the other versions of the virus.....gotta be close to ten times. And each time, you provide no evidence to back your claim.
Delta variant is more contagious but there is no evidence it’s more deadly, possibly even less so than previous variants, the jury is still out on this one.

Dunno....maybe the IOC sees China as having more disposable income than the Sudan.
That's true. So why is China allowed to participate when it forced the IOC to reject "Taiwan" but allow "Chinese Taipei"?

The Olympics were founded with warring communities putting aside their weapons in order to compete in sport. A country or athlete unable to do this and refusing to compete in sport against their opponent is rightly disqualified regardless of the geopolitics.

I assume you are referring to the Chen et al article from April 2021 "Climate and the spread of COVID-19"
Unfortunately that article did not take population density and population migration into account for their results, not their fault as that itself throws in enough variable to kill any MANOVA.
Evaporation is lower in humid environments, obviously., but in aerosol form, the virus is active for a reasonable amount of time. A paper by Azuma et al (Environmental factors involved in SARS-CoV-2 transmission: effect and role of indoor environmental quality in the strategy for COVID-19 infection control) looked at surface variability on viral survivability, since transmission events are not limited to the outdoors. Take home is that summer or not, people exists indoors (and on trains, bars, offices, etc) and outdoors, so droplets are existing in numerous environments, many w/o exposure to aspects which increase their evaporation.
It's a Friday night, so no reason to puke out more citations.

So hot countries with lots of UV have lower Covid infection rates....countries like India and Brazil?
I'll get many down-votes for this. Yes, they are not distanced, but that's about the only thing they're doing wrong. They are outside and they are masked. It's also a high-UV day and droplets are going to burn off faster. Studies have found roughly

What’s kind of weird is that they fired the guy so quickly. So clearly they talked to him about this beforehand and decided that they were not even going to give him a chance to make a public apology. So maybe he wouldn’t apologize, maybe he still thinks the joke is funny. As Kobayashi hasn’t made a statement, hard to know if he’s a Mel Gibson fan or not.

Notice anything? You don't see the data of the people getting tested by age group. All you see is an age breakdown of the people who tested positive. Plus, younger people can also have diabetes or other health issues that make them more subject to severe symptoms. You should know this by now.
Notice anything? You don't see any old people. Which means that 99.9% of these people will be mild cases and make a full recovery.
2 ( +3 / -1 )
There is a 2-6 week lag in severe hospitalizations and deaths resulting from increases in cases. Increased numbers of Covid patients, even with mild symptoms clog up the hospitals, so that people suffering from other diseases can’t get treatment. Then, some that do recover have long term damage to their bodies.
The increase in cases is nothing to be celebrated and not a reason to remark “Oh joy, the vaccines are working!”
