Again chasing a virus with statistics is like chasing a unicorn only to realize that statistics are as mythical as unicorns as the narrative is an interpretation of how the government expects the virus to behave (for the better or worse). The real numbers we should be getting is hospitalization and deaths to include the ages of patients, and whether or not those hospitalized had preexisting health conditions. Whatever happened to contact tracing the other chasing of the unicorn?
As long as the virus is alive, it will look for a host to survive and mutate. Of course, the inefficiency of the logistics of the vaccine roll out that has become dichotomized as haves and have nots that cannot be ignored. If industrialized countries have difficulties getting their populations vaccinated, what does this say for industrializing countries’ access to vaccines?
The hard realities to accept are the invisible economic repercussions from lockdowns with governments’ abilities to keep economies floating while David versus Goliath companies struggle to survive. Is the government even thinking about cutting another stimulus check to taxpayers? If this virus is here to stay, what reality is in the near future other than mandated vaccines, mask wearing, and arbitrarily social distancing?

The sacrifices of the people to legitimize a continuing farce to propagate a facade. Smfh

The virus will do what the virus wants. Follow the science not the numbers. Remember those days when there were flu epidemics?
You close and shutdown the source of infection from the known place of infections. You don’t shutdown whole societies. Hence, the economy. It only exacerbates the problem.
Wtf is a quasi state of national? A means to kowtow of holding the Olympics and pretending the elephant isn’t in the room.

Of course it's all about the politics and economy. I mean if holding the Olympics will boost GDP. Without fans will definitely still be a blow as ticket sells make up a large portion of revenue. How about our taxpayers' money? Shouldn't the Japanese government already sent out another stimulus? Let me not forget the mighty Dentsu who got more taxpayers' money. With all the vaccination program debacles going on worldwide, will everyone be vaccinated in time? Or is the fear mongering of a 4th wave upon us? smh
