I think I remember something similar in a Bugs Bunny cartoon. You can’t make this stuff up. Glad nobody was killed.

Posted in: Vaccine passport protests in Europe draw thousands of people See in context

There is no reason for a healthy person to refuse a Covid vaccination. All these anti-vaxers are to young and ignorant to know what the world was like before vaccines. Polio, diphtheria,, TB, chicken pox and many other diseases that killed millions were all wiped out through vaccination. If they don’t want to be vaccinated it is their choice, but don’t expect society to accommodate their naive and selfish views.

Posted in: Japan's COVID-19 foreign entry ban spurs demonstrations in several countries See in context

So, where’re all the calls of socialism and nazis that were dished out to Australia for the tennis scandal? At least Australia is allowing entry to vaccinated people. Japan has a total ban on foreigners entering the country regardless of vaccination status. I’m not surprised in the least that people are protesting around the world. Japan needs to update this status to allow the tourist areas to make some kind of financial recovery.

Posted in: 20,830 suicides reported in Japan in 2021 See in context

It’s much better than the 30,000+ suicides of the mid-2000’s. This statistic should also include an age group breakdown, specifically the youth suicide rate.

Posted in: Japan widens virus restrictions but some people becoming less cooperative See in context

I don’t think uncooperative is correct. People are becoming complacent and disregarding the severity of this virus and the effect it has society and economics. Too many people are getting fed up with restrictions, but disregarding them is what is keeping this virus alive. Governments should t have to put restrictions on people. They should have learned over the last two years that life has changed and you can’t do whatever you like. It comes down to Darwinism. Those who evolve will survive. Those who don’t will not.

There was an 8 week old baby died from covid in Australia last December. People have to do whatever they can to help prevent the spread of this virus. Governments also have to start giving out more support to people who are being financially disadvantaged by the virus.

nonu6976 - they have more cases of omicron arrivals from overseas than community cases of delta.

Raw Beer - Different diseases and very different vaccines. Perhaps they need to suffer vaccine adverse effects to understand that these vaccines come with significant risks and are best avoided if they are not needed

What a complete and utter load of garbage! Only a very small number have experienced adverse effects to the Covid vaccines. However, the vaccines have kept millions out of the ICU and avoided death. It’s one thing be against the vaccines, but it’s a completely different thing to be a complete idiot.

Posted in: New law in France bars unvaccinated from restaurants, sports arenas and other venues See in context

There is no reason why a healthy person should not get vaccinated. Perhaps they need to catch polio, diphtheria, TB or whooping cough to remind them how important vaccination is for the whole of society.

Posted in: Djokovic loses deportation appeal in Australia See in context

So many misinformed and naive comments in this thread. Comparing Australia to China is ridiculous.

Hwe was refused entry to Australia because he is not vaccinated and could not provide a legitimate medical exemption certificate. His first appeal was granted. However, he is no seen as a kind of martyr for the anti-vax crowd by boasting he is not vaccinated and allowed into Australia. It is highly unlikely his second appeal with be favorable for him.

Posted in: Japan to reduce plastic waste from April See in context

Is that April this year? Does this mean no more individually plastic wrapped candy, chocolates, cookies, fruits and veges? They are still using polystyrene foam for meat packaging, which was phased out in the west over twenty years ago due to HFCs. I’ll believe it when I see it.

Posted in: Japan to cut 14-day isolation for Omicron close contacts to 10 days See in context

Why is Japan always so far behind the rest of the world? If you are a close contact, vaccinated and test negative to a RAT test there is no quarantine in Australia.

Posted in: Djokovic faces deportation after Australia revokes visa See in context

Rob Nads - Joke of a country, lead by incompetent, disgraceful, corrupt politicians. I hope all athletes boycott events held in Australia going forward.

Is this a serious comment? He broke immigration law and has been deported for it. I fail to see how his deportation merits such a ridiculous, naive and berating tirade.

Posted in: The heat stays on: Earth hits 6th warmest year on record See in context

Whether global warming is a natural event or caused by CO2 is irrelevant now. The world has to prepare for the massive changes to come. Melting polar icecaps, increased alkalinity of the seas, flooding of low lying grain and rice belts, increased severity and frequency of storms and tornadoes, droughts and food shortages. These are no longer scientific speculation. The threat is real! I wouldn’t be rushing out to buy any waterfront property.

Bla, bla, bla! I believe it was Indian travelers they blamed for the delta strain. The omicron strain is highly contagious and can be transmitted by people who shoe no symptoms. This means that anybody, including Japanese nationals could have brought virus into Japan. Stop wasting time pointing fingers and get in with the business of controlling it.
