An alarm? What do you mean by an “alarm”?

Do you mean like in George Orwell’s “1984”?

Yeah. They’re the same old guys who get up roofs to adjust tiles in typhoons.

OnTheTrail One of the nicest snow adventures for me used to be taking the Joetsu Line from Tokyo up to Niigata prefecture when a snowy cold wave hits. You go through this long tunnel and suddenly come out at Yuzawa. Everybody on the train goes, “ WHAA..”. It’s great.

You can get an idea of the mentality of readership on here by the fact that a simple short comment like:

” They should be able to think what they like”

gets a barrage of down votes.

Lots of comments to read regarding corona virus. But all I have to do is look at which comments gather a -10 rating and which gather a plus 10 rating, and I already know what their sentiments will be.

Same about sweets. Sugary sweets! - Not so much buttery sweets because that costs more for production.

Compare Starbucks food menu here with elsewhere. Unless it’s a sandwich, everything is sweet. Young women here just love those sweets! And Starbucks is geared to the young female market.

And they will give you one little napkin. Because Japanese - especially women - eat so slowly and delicately that they hardly need a napkin at all.

Me? I would use 10-15 napkins, plus tissues brought from home.

If it wasn’t sufficiently obvious already, I wasn’t asking for a point-by-point guidance. I was asking for opinions as to the complicated procedures involved in getting such a vaccine.

So, here in Japan.

To the “wait a little longer people”, I want to ask how are you going to get this vaccine when it does come out? How long is the line going to be?

And if asking if a person is a smoker, would you ask how often? Some people might smoke 20-40 cigs a day. Some people might have one cig a day. Big difference!

“Do you/Don’t you” questions with everything now leads to the us-vs.-them mentality you have in societies today.

Well, obviously if everyone stays alone in a hole, the numbers will go down. Until....

Like everything in nature, the virus actually does have a certain intelligence of sorts. It seeks to spread itself.

They don’t bring it down. It just waits around till people come outside in a weaker condition. Or, your lockdown will just make it go somewhere else where people are outside.

How about this idea. Lockdowns only extend the virus’s presence. The more we lock down, the more it just moves around to kill people elsewhere. Why would we think that lockdowns can trick a disease into disappearing?

Humans are so arrogant and egotistical.

Actually, the Philippines gets 20 typhoons/year on average. And this is the time of year when they’re more likely to occur. So, this high number is not that strange - if you check records. Do you check records?

I’m not a climate change denier. Causes? Partly. And what can be done? Absolutely. It’s interesting how COVID-19 supporters of lockdowns are also supporters of costly accords on who-knows-what to “fix” climate change.

Nature is nature, people. And the Left never was interested in the weather until it was juice for political arguments.

Yes, ultimately, we will just let it go. We will say we didn’t let it go, but ultimately that’s what we will have done. The only difference in humans now is their pride and egotism which makes them think they can conquer nature.

But they still can’t make it rain, can they?

Live carefully, but freely.

What about all those athletes....pro tennis, football etc...They’re getting it all the time. Makes it look like a kinda inconvenience. Oh, and politicians. Trump etc. All of this is reinforcing the flu image. Like with the flu, you have people (many) who beat it easily, and you have people ( relatively few ) who get very ill or even die.

The death number from Covid in Japan is very low. Only 4 yesterday. People should not panic. I think reminding people that many more die in a day from other diseases is not inappropriate in this case report and can calm people who may be overly stressed by case numbers.

Re: real issue is hospital capacity.

Yes, but that may be due to hospitals taking cases too seriously - I.e. they could, in many cases, convalesce at home.

By the way, re: masks over nose. My nose protrudes so it’s difficult. Also, hard to breathe. In busy stores, I’m over the nose, though.

Of course, I’m optimistic.

I think with the added care people are taking, fewer people will catch colds, normal flu and maybe pneumonia too this winter. So, death toll from all these diseases will actually mean FEWER deaths this winter from contagious diseases in than a normal winter.

I, myself, have usually caught a cold by now in a normal fall/winter season. Not this year.
