@Elvis is here

No one can deny masks keep you warm in the cold Tokyo wind.

If you do, then your opinion is not worth ¥1.

it’s currently -25 in my hometown and if you consider the windchill factor it is -40°

i’m sorry but Tokyo is not even close to a temperature that could be even considered cold

30+ is obese. Doubt you're near that number

according to the formula I found online I guess I would be 23.8

@Ian

If everyone thinks like that less chance to survive for each one and the collective.

Good thing some people have sense

don’t be so unnecessarily dramatic.

So far since the pandemic begun, the only result of my philosophy has been that I’ve gotten sick once for 24 hours. My decision has had zero impact on anyone else.

it worked out for me.

I say let everyone make decisions based on what they think is best for themselves.

You wanna inject yourself, go for it. You don’t want to inject yourself, then don’t.

@fighto

selfish? that’s funny

to make myself responsible for the entire world is insanity

we are all only responsible for ourselves.

you think you are vaccinated because it’s a social responsibility and you think you’re doing your part for the world? in reality, you’re just full of fear and brainwashed but you just don’t want to admit it. It’s kind of like an extreme type of virtue signaling.

I can’t even take what you say seriously.

I finally got Covid this week for the first time.

unvaccinated and my only symptom was a high fever.

I went from 37° to 39° and back to 37° within 24 hours.

besides a nasty headache which accompanied my fever, absolutely no other symptoms at all.

everything was over within 24 hours

I am so not regretting my choice to not receive any of the Covid shots

@Mumbai rocks

Rare for a female but it happens. Maybe he partook of the chalice.

I would say it’s more 50-50 and the rare part would be men feeling intimidated enough to go to the police.

Meaning female stalkers are less likely to be reported to the police than male stalkers.

@Roy

I hope the following explanation helps you to identify what a low number is;

population of Tokyo

13.96 million

New Covid cases in Tokyo

18,812

Hospitalized with severe symptoms

22

With almost 14,000,000 people in Tokyo, almost 19,000 have a contracted Covid. I would say that’s a pretty low number. That’s approximately .1% of the entire population.

Of those 19,000 only 22 have been hospitalized with severe symptoms. I would say that is also a pretty low number.

That’s also approximately .1%

.1% (point one %)

I would say that’s a pretty low number.

19,000 of 14 million…. 19,000 is quite low in comparison.

22 of 19,000… 22 is also quite low in comparison

The fight was soooooo one sided. I knew Inoue would win but with how Butler ran his mouth off leading up to the fight, I thought we would at least put some effort into a show of trying to win. Alas, no effort at all…

All efforts was purely to just hang on…

made for a boring fight to watch

Kenchi,

inventing medical terms (what are "Covid Morbilities"?) and numbers, are we? Whatever gets you through the day, I guess. But why exactly? What difference does it make to you if the number is 243, 97, or 3?

covid morbidities (forgive me if the spelling is incorrect) are things such as age, compromised immune systems, obesity and other factors which make people more susceptible to sickness, especially to Covid. It’s not a made up term.

The number I took was the number in the article above. Today’s coronavirus “related” deaths just so happened to be 243 today…

why is that number so important??? well if you consider the total population of Japan, then compare the number I was referring to…. then you got a sense of how “deadly” the virus is.

If the number of ordinarily healthy people are dying in large numbers then I would say that it would be pretty deadly.

if the number of ordinarily healthy people that are dying is quite low then I would say it would not be very deadly.

even a non adjusted number of 243 out of 124.7 million people (japan’s population), is a very very small number

0 ( +9 / -9 )

Posted in: Japan reports 133,065 new coronavirus cases See in context

243 minus those who died from other reasons “with” Covid, minus those with complications due to Covid Morbilities = the number that’s actually important for me.

that’s so 2020…

so I guess that Shibuya crossing is experiencing a super spreader event every day….

and every packed train every morning is also a super spreader event…

We should’ve surpassed 1 million cases ages ago by that logic

Posted in: Big Pharma may have to reveal government deals in WHO's draft pandemic rules See in context

You mean the much reduced rates of hospitalizations, complications and death in vaccinated people? that does exactly the opposite of your mistaken conclusions.

And the fact that the virus itself weakened had no role to play? I would say that is the main factor attributing to reduce rates of hospitalizations, complications and death.

In fact, ”If” I were to make a conclusion based on my own observations (as I know quite a few unvaccinated people, ALL of who didn’t even contract Covid), I would say that the vaccine makes one MORE susceptible to contracting the virus.

At the very most, I would say the vaccine would only be beneficial to those at risk due to age or having a compromised immune system. At the very most…

I think it’s quite curious that there seems to be a lack of data readily available showing recent statistics of vaccinated versus unvaccinated infections and well as the demographics (including the health conditions when infected). Leading with that kind of info would instantly dispel any suspicions.

One would think that that kind of data would be available and would be a great tool in promoting the benefits of being vaccinated. Alas, that last nail in the coffin does not exist.

Nor will it ever…

If teachers didn’t complain about students I’d be surprised.

Can’t really blame the teacher for a conversation that they thought they were having in private but I do understand why they took “a leave of absence”, whether it was self imposed or forced on them.

Unfortunate that the owner of the laptop decided it was a good idea to circulate the conversation.

what a conundrum

Technology…. damned if you do and damned if you don’t.

some 60 vaccinated...or around that number.

Source for that information please

I will speculate around the same number (I actually suspect that it’s higher) given how much of the population is vaccinated.

feel free to provide a link that says it’s not.

 lots of hospitalized people and a fatality rate over 2%? Or mostly asymptomatic / mild symptomatic people?

I find it hilarious that there are those that will blindly follow so called “experts” and the the government…. UNTIL it is something they personally don’t believe. Then suddenly the experts and government have no idea what they’re doing and that THEY know better.

I also find that the most xenophobically acting people in Japan are foreigners. They remind me of jealous pretentious Canadians who snub their noses at Mericans…

48 coronavirus-“related” deaths nationwide… A nation of almost 126 million people. Notice I put related in quotations.

The words chosen are pretty important.

I wonder how many of those deaths were directly caused “by” Covid. And of those deaths, their age and health condition at the time they caught it…?

it would seem to me that it would be very easy to convince me or anyone else of the severity of this virus if it were indeed serious…

Their approach is working, give it time

give it time? so three years have passed and their zero Covid policy hasn’t worked… how much time do you propose they give it? Three more years…? 10? 20?

like the flu virus, this is a virus that will NEVER go away. It’s here to stay.

A zero Covid policy means they will be in lockdown forever

so you are suggesting that?

Not far off a 100% drop, thats a hell of a fluctuation. Methinks this has more to do with the logistics of reporting than an actual magical halving of infections when we're still in the tens of thousands.

that depends on who comments…

there are a few on here who believe in magic

but they won’t comment Today.

Want hear something weird? Everyone I know (here in Japan and overseas) who is not vaccinated (and I know quite a few) has never caught Covid (that they are aware of).

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying they don’t exist, but I can honestly say that for of those that I know. And those same people do not wear masks.

And everyone that I know that has caught Covid (and I know a lot) has been vaccinated.

how everyone goes on about it here, it shouldn’t be statistically possible.

But there it is.

weird eh

Painkiller,

You have the ability to lock yourself down, mask up and stay inside. You really do.“You” will be safe from all the dangerous stuff. Just never go outside. Never ever… and you will be ok
