Exactly. So I expect Bach to visit Nanjing next winter.

@pukey

I agree. Also a far worse tragedy against a country that didn't deserve it.

All the countries mentioned like Vietnam and Italy have had a far superior response to the virus than Japan has. I don't know what the man in his 50's, returning from Italy is rambling on about.

Shocking prejudice from Japan. I'd focus on my own slow, burdensome vaccination program if I was you.

Unless you have actually experienced COVID-19 and Long-Covid, then stop spreading falsehoods.

Many of us have been suffering long-term and/or permanent destruction of our health because of long-COVID. I'm over a year out since catching it, and I am still dealing with the symptoms. I was also not "obese", was in fact healthy and active, and exercise is still almost impossible for me to manage without ending up with the COVID symptoms all over again. Some symptoms as a result of this illness seem to be permanent and a new part of who we survivors are. Others come and go, but anything seems to trigger them. It can take up to two weeks to recover when they do flare up. Try having a job or even a basic, functional life when the illness lasts this long.

@skipp

Apologies. I made a mistake with the quote function.

I was writing 'sigh' to one of falseflagsteve's comments. And I do like steve as I think he's brave to come on here day in day out. I just didn't agree with his post.

I'm sorry for the confusion.

Incredibly low deaths considering the case numbers and also low severe cases. The vaccines are working and working well. Case numbers are becoming pretty irrelevant as we see huge increases in numbers no longer equate to high deaths and hospitalizations.

> We are many trying to distract us from the good news by banging on about Long Covid. Long Covid is similar to other viruses that have long term effects, usually lasting a few weeks and minor, rarely serious. These effect mostly the obese who are rare in Japan. The lack of obesity is why deaths in Japan are low as will be Long Covid.

Sigh

Not surprising in the least.

> Japanese people are the biggest bandwagon fans there are.

> Someone does well or wins, they are the best and people suddenly become “lifelong fans from day 1.”

> Someone loses or does poorly, they abruptly become forgot about.

> When’s the last time someone talked about Yu Darvish, Nishikori Kei or rugby on a grand scale?
