Mobile vaccination clinics available throughout Hawaii over Memorial Day weekend......Can we try this?

Sounds like a good idea...let's set up " expert panel" and have a series of meetings over the next 6 month. Will release a report with recommendations as early as January 2022

Oh yes ... you nailed the “ early as ... (distant future) infuriating line!

When you put a Finance Minister rather than a Health Minister in charge of the pandemic response, it shows the priorities of the Government. What more needs to be said?

Nothing against children, but they could quite possibly grow up to be politicians.

On patrol with batons drawn. Is this really necessary?!

They're lost! They should be patrolling in Ginza where their bosses are scoffing over-priced steaks.

There was early talk of scrapping the event, but heavy sponsorship by Coca-Cola and Toyota made that difficult.

Good to see who’s calling the shots. Is there anyone who still believes it’s about sport?

Posted in: Japan to extend state of emergency until March 7 See in context

Under the current state of emergency, scheduled to end on Sunday, restaurants and bars are requested to trade for shorter hours and people encouraged to stay home as much as possible. The Nikkei daily newspaper reported that gyms, cinemas and karaoke establishments could be added if new daily infections in Tokyo rise above 1,000 for several consecutive days.

So my neighbourhood restaurants are at risk of closing down and meanwhile the nasty corporate gyms and karaoke joints are protected? I wish I had voting rights.

If the Go To Travel was not started in the first place, we would not be in a position we are in now.


And as for the vaccine being the answer, EVERYONE I asked does not want to be vaccinated...

NO ONE I’ve asked does not want to be vaccinated. So...can I have your jab?

... close contact with the British government and the World Health Organization, adding there were no immediate plans to tighten travel restrictions.

Hmm, so Japanese passport holders can travel freely from hotspots like England with no requirement to self-isolate upon return to Japan? Seems a bit dodgy.
