I'm from the Netherlands, the news here is speaking of a highly amaturistic event, and a disaster so far. Can't blame them.

Literally a minute ago on the Dutch news about the poor circumstances the athletes in quarantine are in. No fresh air, no daylight. What a joke.

Of course Suga asks him to do that, because when Suga says something, no one believes him.

Got my shot today. In the Netherlands, and perhaps other countries, it was decided that you only require 1 shot if you have had a corona infection. No real sideeffects, my arm just feels like I went to the gym for 5 hours.

Suga man, please stop already, who will ever take him seriously after this anyways. He already lost all credibility in my opinion.

It's pretty clear that the Japanese government is doing an excellent job of testing only those tha tmight be infected rather than testing everyone else that do not need to be tested.

What are you talking about??

The only thing they are excellent at is taking as little responsibility as possible and doing everything they can to force the Olympics.

Japan, as usual trying to save face by putting out some international news that they are doing something. Meanwhile in reality all they do is have some more meetings, start urging, and ignore every situation where rules get broken and lines get crossed.

“ The state of emergency will:

ask residents to refrain from nonessential outings after 8 p.m.

call for restaurants and bars to stop serving alcohol by 7 p.m. and close by 8 p.m.

encourage companies to have employees work from home or stagger shifts to reduce people in office by 70 percent.

not ask schools to close, unlike previous state of emergency last spring. “

We'll know they mean business once they start urging ;)

What does he even mean second lockdown? as if the first SOE became close to an actual lockdown, and neither will this one. Just a whole lot of meetings and urging.

Start to think positive. 1300 is a baby number compared to the millions in the Tokyo/Yokohama area

The amount of tests is usually also a baby number compared to the millions of people. Don't you get it?

Oh man, government can't even handle the original strain. If this thing gets out of control, and knowing this government it will, I wonder how they will possibly spin it to try and desperatly hold on to the garbage fire titled The Olympics.
