Posted in: Japan seeks to further ease border controls as COVID 6th wave wanes See in context

A three day quarantine is not horrible

As a business traveler that goes for less than a week at a time, ANY quarantine is a non-starter. Glad that Japan is seemingly going to do it the right way!

Even when Japan finally decides to “open”, it’s going to be a slow, pathetic trickle of business income for this maimed tourism industry.

 If people want to leave and move to less populated regions, that's a win-win for society. Let them leave.

It's what I say about California every time someone complains about the governor or potential vax mandates: JUST MOVE.

Open borders in March, please, thanks. International business would like to resume. Nothing to see here on this wave.

Youngkin got that white, no-degree voter caption locked in around 75%, whew! Time to celebrate at the Waffle House.

Posted in: Japan to ease quarantine rule to 3 days for business travelers See in context

Ridiculous. This will get abused immiedately. I anticipate a lot of totally unnecessary "business trips" 

There are limits on how many incoming are allowed. This will be no different. There will be a cap, definitely not a free for all.

Posted in: Japan starts checking COVID vaccination status of overseas arrivals See in context

Why so much concern about dividing humanity in asinine social categories?

While a tad harsh, it's becoming more clear that it's the case. At least in the USA, the politically charged anti-vax people are starting to see the light, albeit slowly. Even right wing media is beginning to cave because their base are checking into hospitals and/or dying. Never thought I'd hear Fox people finally say "get your vaccination", but good will prevail. Just like with Biden.

P.S. Knowing that everyone on a flight is vaxxed would offer great reassurance. There should be no choice.

Been Pfizer vaxxed since February. Would love to see my co-workers/friends in Japan, once again. Last time was Nov 2019. Testing is easy. Hoping for a late 2021 entry with test/vax, but not holding my breath.

Posted in: Internet misinformation fans COVID vaccine hesitancy among Japanese young people See in context

Saddens me to see the stupidity of red states/counties in the USA seeping into Japanese society. 99.5% of covid deaths in the USA in June were unvaccinated. Cold, hard facts.

Except, of course, if you are one of the 100,000 people coming in for the Olympics.

Yep, and they don't even need to be vaccinated! *see 'Murica
