The Japanese struggle changing traditions and routines, doesn't matter if they are inefficiënt, plain dumb, or even potentially fatal.

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.

Posted in: Suga denies need for state of emergency as cumulative infections top 200,000 See in context

Suga is a joke. Something drastic needs to change, when this guy steps down again because his popularity keeps dropping, a new Abe/Suga clone will take his place and Japan can never really improve as a country.

4000 tests. And I bet they truly think they are doing an amazing job. Happy I left recently, tired of a government pulling the wool over their citizen's eyes, and nobody allowed to question. Shoganai culture, amazing.

That takes care of that. Wasn't exucution super expensive anyways? Even more than keeping him alive and feeding him for the rest of his life? Or is that just in the us?

Posted in: Tokyo gov't to ask older people not to use travel campaign amid virus spike See in context

Here in the Netherlands the restrictions are quite severe, and since yesterday a law was out in place to wear masks indoors in public places, resulting in a 95 euro fine if you don’t. I was surprised last week when I came back after 5 years in Japan, to see more people wearing masks here than in Japan. Then again, cases have been going down lately, even with winter starting. Since today also everyone can get tested, regardless if you have symptoms or not, and it’s free.

Nice, urging, cause that apparently worked so well in the past. Grow a pair and take action and responsibility, not everything revolves around you saving face.

I can already visualize it. Depressed looking athletes competing without any effort, and just the olympic committee cheering in an absolute quiet and deserted stadium.

so young, sad that he never got to see the better days that come with getting out of JHS.

You mean bullying bosses and tons of overtime. Yes, students in Japan really have a career to look forward to.

What victory. Not even all states have been counted, and there hasn’t been an official result yet. Unless you think the newschannels are the ones deciding the winner.

But Japan does only test people who want to get testes, thus are experiencing symptoms therefore are more likely to test positive. I think if they were to test every single person in Tokyo the % would probably be lower.. right..?
