Does the EU know something about the numbers we don't? Cases seem to be gong down recently. Why add Japan now?

My wife got her first dose Sunday. I will get my first in 12 days. This is still a problem. People that have wanted to be vaccinated for months are only now finally making it onto the lists.

Anyway.. Count us in the fully vaccinated club in a bit over a month.

I went to the doctor. He said I wish sick and needed three days to recover.

I was still sick theee days later and he extended my recovery time three more days.

How worthless is this scheduled end time when they have no clue? WTF is the idea of scheduled end dates every single time?

Sometimes Japan drives me nuts!!!

This Suga guy sure is putting a lot of time and effort into trying to secure victory for himself.

I am certain that the drive and determination he is showing bodes well for any future COVID endeavors!

Let's elect him instead of whomever is currently in charge, because they seem to be doing absolutely nothing.

Are there any real reporters in Japan?

I'm tired of seeing articles that lack important information.

Additionally, why do reporters never seem to ask any tough questions?

These are not blog posts.

Getting the facts and providing the facts (or, at the very least, expressing how and why it is impossible to do so at the moment) is literally your only job. Try doing it.

I've said it often - they test until a certain number threshold is hit and then just stop. That's why the number of tests always vary, but the positives seem to always be just barely contained. It's a performance.

I should run for government.

I think even communicating in solely English, I could have accomplished more in 18 months than the current regime has.

How can they STILL be planning for every single thing as if they had no idea it was possible? Does no one at all understand forethought?

I don't disagree with some of it, but calling the AoC "time-honored" is a bit nutty. It is barely withing the last 100 years that even half the world thought 15-16 was a fair starting point. Just before that, most places with an AoC law of any kind were from around 10-12 years old.

In any case, not saying this was a good situation or trying to excuse it, but time-honored is a huuuge stretch IMO.

Fantastic! By "never abandoning the athletes", as Bach put it, they have now only given them false hope of competing while others can simply because of dumb luck.

Yeah, I am sure they feel muuuch better wasting their time, money and health for nothing.

Don't be alarmed, we have everything under control. We have your best interests at heart and will take absolute care of you. No need to worry, it will all be fine - safe and secure.

What? Why is no one alarmed?!?!

Didn't Bach say something along the lines of he didn't want to cancel the olympics and disappoint the athletes?

I'm no olympian, but personally, I would rather have had the games cancelled or postponed feeling everyone was on a pevel playing field rather than have the games go ahead and then lose my opportunity due to sheer chance while others get to compete.

I wonder how many athletes will feel severely depressed during snd after these games.

Is it false? I really don't know. Apparently the US gymnast that became infected was vaccinated. I don't know when, but that seems not so promising.

It's the same all around. You know none of them are actually footing the bill. Their taxpayers can pay for their flight and whatever else until they get to Japan and then we can comp them on everything with our own taxes, because why not?

Welcome dignitaries. Are the Japanese people happy to have you? Oh, you don’t care one way or the other? Seems legit.

Me too! Imagine the exhilaration of playing in the olympics in front of a crowd like that! It's probably like nothing they have ever imagined! I mean, I remember my little league days and, wow, FIFTY people?!?! They must be enjoying the hell out of this experience!

I wonder if it's possible to sue the IOC for gross negligence if everything explodes.

I mean, if the JP government can't help those of us struggling to make it through this on scraps, then maybe the people can recoup some of our tax dollars afterward from the organization they gave our money to.

Save this post for posterity as it's a nearly guaranteed outcome.

When it all goes with a confluence heat, humidity, Covid19 and general understaffing at hospitals, it will just be Jgov blaming the IOC and the IOC blaming Jgov in an endless circle jerk until it all just goes away when the next "scandal" erupts.

The lives lost will be a footnote, at best, and citizens will contiue to let them get away with it.

Posted in: Osaka hospitals buckle under COVID-19 onslaught See in context

I have lived in Osaka for years. Durig the first two SOEs, people did everything asked of them for the most part. This latest SOE, I think everyone just reached their breaking point and only a minority of citizens stayed home.

Basically, no change.

But the numbers have steadily decreased (according to reports) the past couple of weeks. However, we still dozens of COVID related deaths reported daily and continue to see articles about hospitals being overwhelmed.


How are these falling numbers resulting in greater death and hospitilization rates?

I have felt for a long time that the Tokyo numbers are being manipulated, but only recently have I begun to feel that Kansai's results are now also being carefully controlled.

I just don't buy it any more. Call me a conspiracy theorist, or an idiot, but things just don't add up.

There must be someone that will eventually come out with information proving that things are not on the up and up, and I truly hope anyone and everyone involved gets their just desserts.

None of this bowing and groveling for a bit only to step out of politics and into a cushy position on some company's board of directors. I want the guilty parties to waste away in prison for their complete lack of care for humanity and their ovwrwhelming greed.
