Posted in: Japan embarks on random and targeted COVID-19 testing, but some experts call for more See in context

One year later, Japan is testing. Why? Because now they know how and they had one year to devise a perfect plan.

The lack of urgency is appalling.

I'll bet the Prosecutors will divide the charges to ridiculously lengthen the detention. 23 days, smuggling Ghosn from his apartment to a hotel. +23days, smuggling Ghosn from the hotel to the train station. +23days, smuggling Ghosn from train station A to train station B. +23 days, smuggling Ghosn from train station B to the airport. etc. etc.

Japan Prosecutors are a nasty bunch, but they sure are resourceful.

Let's be real here. Judges in Japan don't make decisions and that's the truth.

Posted in: 2 Americans wanted in Ghosn's escape now in Japanese custody See in context

Japanese prosecutors itching to take revenge is just pathetic. I'll bet they will be detained for hundreds of days for the irrational fear of incompetent Prosecutors of "destroying evidence". It's sad to be a lawyer in Japan. People look at them like a joke.

Why can't they just use the vaccine as soon as it arrives. This endless planning is criminal.

If this is hate crime because of the coronavirus, it's also evidence of the sad state of American education. They can't even tell the difference between China and Japan.

Now it seems that the law - reporting future compensations - is stupid. Whoever thought of that is a genius, not.

Assuming the vaccines are effective

They are not assuming anything. There are peer-reviewed tests and results.

Nope. Still Trump, Trump supporters, and Republican's doing.

Well, political will can defy rules for the greater good. Japanese "leaders" don't have political will.

Posted in: Japan to receive 2nd shipment of Pfizer vaccine on Sunday See in context

I'm fine with doing these studies to convince the general population that the vaccine is safe.

But I am pretty sure that there are more than 500,000 people willing to be vaccinated right away. To wait 7 weeks to use this 1M doses is just illogical and irresponsible (meaning politicians are scared to be held responsible).

These dinosaurs have spent all their life in their circle that they think what they do is very special. They think ordinary people won't be able to do what they do, that's why they want them to observe.

Dinosaurs should just disappear. They've withheld progress for Japan for too long. Little do they know that it's not them, but their parents, that brought progress to Japan in the first place.

If the side effects include fatalities then the medical workforce will be crippled.

No records or proof of death due to the vaccine being new. Only real danger is anaphylactic shock, which is present in any type of vaccine. If you are allergic, don't take the vaccine.

When someone is being bullied, the blame is on the bully and his/her parents.

Shu says heterosexual men must begin to acknowledge the privileges they enjoy.

This is the only reason why men would go against gender equality and justice. Men don't want to relinquish the privileges they have from this highly unequal society.

Posted in: Japan approves Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine See in context

The interesting question to be watched for is will changes be made to the overly regulated system as to who can give vaccinations so as to accelerate the roll out to meet their planned delivery ahead of the still planned Olympic Games?

Japan wasn't hit very hard by the pandemic. So this won't happen.

How can they be so sure that it will be approved, and yet schedule a very specific date for approval? Shouldn’t the just approve it, the moment they know that it is approved?
