Posted in: Nurses say they are needed elsewhere, not at Tokyo Olympics See in context

I would have been all for the Olympics had the JGov shown that they can vaccinate people in time. Four months and we're still at 1%. If they can't handle the vaccination, they can't handle the Olympics. These dinosaurs should just disappear.

"Through providing the information online, we hope consumers know more about the environmental damage from their clothing items, and think about recycling before throwing away," a ministry official said.

First class thinker right here. Brilliant idea.

The daily checkups have been conducted as part of strengthened border control measures since the end of March to keep imported cases of the coronavirus at bay and target all arrivals into the country for a 14-day period.

Yup, another Kyodo news. Before, it was the EU's fault that the vaccine roll out was slow in Japan because of "shortage of supply". Now, it's the virus coming from the outside that's causing the surge in the country.

The Editor-in-Chief of this news company needs to be replaced.

You can just tell that this article is from Kyodo News. In their eyes, the government has done nothing wrong.

Posted in: Japan to introduce 'vaccine passports' for international travel See in context

For the passport to work, Japan needs to vaccinate first. I am thinking 2025?

Posted in: Japan's unused 14 mil doses of COVID-19 vaccines point to logistical hurdles See in context

Its simple ship the vaccines to each ward and have the citizens go to specific areas to get shots.

No, we can't make it that simple.

We need to make reservations online, and confirmation by calling, then fax the reservation form, fill up, fax back, wait one day for processing (very fast), get schedule through post mail, return agreement of the schedule by post mail, wait for the call after one day (also very fast).

On the day of the jab, bring the schedule post card, fill up health form - oops you have to do this ahead online, go back home, fill up the health form online - go back to the site, take the doctor's interview, and then you can finally get the vaccine.

True story.

Company employee Keisuke Munakata, a 55-year-old resident of Tokyo, said he commutes in every day because he has many meetings to attend.

Meetings can be held online...

How do you know your getting the real vaccine vs a placebo just to so that Japan can say Yep every one is vaccinated let the Olympics begin!

Same as knowing the water you drink is actually water, food actually food, and your money is actually money.

I don't see the crime to involve the police here. Waste of police power and taxpayers money. He got 100,000 yen worth of gifts, but it costed us 10,000,000 yen for his arrest.

Posted in: What does Japan's virus state of emergency mean this time? See in context

Japan’s inoculation campaign lags behind many countries, with imported vaccines in short supply.

Nope, Japan has 15M vaccines in the storage. No supply shortage here, only incompetence.

Posted in: Japan rolls out vaccine slowly, despite looming Olympics See in context

It has received more than 17 million doses from Europe so far -- but only around 1.5 million people have had a first shot, with just over 827,000 fully vaccinated.

I thought the slow rollout was because of short supply, as what JT has been reporting for the past few weeks.

Some countries have a higher rate of COVID-19

What's Kono talking about? Japan has 4% positivity rate, Tokyo has 50%. Still not testing asymptomatic people.

Posted in: Japan considers letting dentists administer COVID-19 vaccines See in context

Supply shortage has been the main reason for the slow rollout, with Japan trailing far behind countries such as Britain and the United States.

Dear KYODO, can we have a link to the data to back this claim?

Kuwazoe told police she kept buying animals because she couldn’t spend any money on travel due to the coronavirus over the past 12 months.

So, save the money?

Many countries are suspending them and a small minority are being killed by them. 

That's a huge generalization. Them means just AstraZeneca, and that's only to provide for countermeasures on the very rare side effects.

Why is Japan so behind the rest of the world?

Because everyone, even the PM, is scared of making decisions.

Posted in: Japan trails world in COVID vaccine rollout 2 months after its start See in context

I wonder why JT repeats writing that EU export controls are partly responsible for the vaccine shortage in Japan.

Japan received about 2M doses in April 2nd alone.

Isn't the injection supposed to go in lower on the side of the arm, where the is a bit more meat? Looks like this is right to bone. Poor lady.

That looks way too high. He should have let the younger guy do it.

"Establishing the ability to domestically develop and produce vaccines is a crucial issue from a crisis management standpoint," Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga said in a Diet session Monday.

Does this guy ever say he "will do" something? It's always just stating the obvious. I never heard of him talking about what they "will do" and only "what needs to be done".

Few deaths because the very sick can still get admitted in hospitals and get the ventilators.

Don’t wait until there’s not enough hospital beds, like whats happening in the Philippines.

I am sure the employees thought this was wrong, but didn't say anything to their boss. The boss knows it's wrong but won't decide because Japan. Typical.
