Oh right it’s tradition. Has to be now. Can’t be changed.

Pathetic failure of a government.

Here’s hoping that countries start to pull out of the Olympics. These idiots don’t deserve to host them.

It’s very reassuring knowing the experts are being brought back in.

Their ability to sit around in meetings bobbing their heads and tooth sucking is something we should all take comfort in.

“Japan so far has avoided an explosive growth in infections, but its recent upsurge has many people worried.”

No it hasn’t. It is completely out of control. Japan has handled this crisis far worse than any other country in Asia.

“The Tokyo govt MUST step up and take some action NOW.”

Nope. The idiots running this country will continue to do absolutely nothing.

Are other countries even thinking about the Olympics? Or is it just the 80-90 year olds here?

This hasn’t aged well.

“In a characteristically Japanese way, we have all but brought this epidemic under control in the last month and a half,” said Mr Abe. “Surely, it shows the power of the Japan model.”

Tokyo authorities absolutely should be tracing the movements over the past week of these 748, as much as practical. Cafes, restaurants, train lines, snacks, izakaya etc must be notified and close contacts tested.”

They should have been doing that from the beginning, when numbers were single or double digits, but instead have chosen to do nothing.

我慢 = Keep working at the office, ignore it, hopefully it goes away by magic. Teleworking is lazy.

“Okay Guys...what is the conclusion? 

621 cases among a population of 14.000.000 is 0.004%.

Not bad, right?”

What are you on about? Japan is closing in on 200,000 “reported” cases. Tokyo 50,000. Given Japan’s pathetic testing numbers and high percentage of positive cases, not to mention clinics outright refusing to test people.... yeah It’s bad.
