As to be expected. Suga has nothing to lose he is not running again so for him and his party it's the best option.

When a new party leader will be elected he will lift the SOE and be the hero of the people.

Meanwhile, the numbers are already in decline so at the end of the month it will be a showcase of great leadership- low corona rates and the reopening of Japan, and all thanks to the newly elected chief.

I hope that they will continue protesting even after the Olympic games will be over. It could be a nice tourist attraction.

As expected, the vaccines do work and we see a steady decline in the numbers of severe cases and deaths.

When the younger population gets vaccinated to we will also see a big decrease in cases overall.

Poor guys, I rooted for the Italian team but I feel sorry for the English team.

They played their best, better than a lot of English teams before them that had bigger stars.

For the penalty kicking misses, you can't blame anyone, everyone misses those from time to time.

Posted in: Kono says local gov'ts need to slow down vaccinations due to supply crunch See in context

Is it only me or the slow-down idea is the most stupid thing anyone can say?

Even if there is a shortage, why slow down?

Isn't it better to vaccinate as many people as possible as fast as you can?!

We need to innoculate more people so herd immunity will be achieved.

Slowing down is just counterproductive.

Innoculate as fast as you can, even if it means that there are no vaccines left.

@Tokyoite

"Japan has only been able to administer 15% of its stockpile of 28 million doses of Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccines, while 24 million doses continue to sit in freezers, Reuters reported."

Hey, tokyoite.

These numbers that you brought don't seem right.

Fully vaccinated people in Japan- 19.14M

Partially vaccinated people in Japan- 14.37

A total of 52.65M doses were administrated (19.14*2 + 14.37=52.65).

If Japan acquired only 28M doses from Pfizer, that means she never had all the vaccination she needed.

I think that Japan has enough vaccines, but they are mostly AZ's and the Japanese Gov decided not to use those due to the high risk of side effects.

They are using Moderna and Pfizer.

The Japanese Gov should have used the Olympic games as leverage to obtain more vaccines.

The world wants/needs the games, then we need more vaccines.

It's a shame that there are not enough vaccines when the Olympic games are happaning.

@Nibek32

Canada and UK studies have Pfizer at 87-88% effective against delta variant.

These studies are not completely controlled and accurate. I definitely do not trust Israel for most matters regarding the truth though.

Actually the Israeli data is that the Pfizer vaccination is 64% effective against contracting the virus, BUT 90% effective against severe illness.

And aside from weird bigotry there is no reason to prefer the UK or Canadian data.

Again, people repeat themselves and keep on pointing to the irrelevant facts.

There are low testing numbers because there are less people who goes to the hospital with symptoms. That means that there are less sick people.

The low hospitalised numbers means that the ones whose affected are the younger that are more immune to the virus.

The number of deaths also shows a big decrease in the spread of the virus in the vulnerable older people.

The numbers are reassuring and shows we're heading in the right direction.

It's good news that the numbers that really matters are falling down.

Only 50 hospitalised and 9 dead.

With the vaccination rollout taking off hopefully we will see the ZERO very soon.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 660 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 1,763 See in context

The number of hospitalized corona patience is steady and is so for the past 3 weeks or so.

The number of death due to corona is also steady in that same manner.

Hopefully, as the vaccination rollout continues we will see the numbers dropping more and more.

This is some reassuring news.

It's good news that the number of Corona-related deaths keeps getting lower.

The numbers for the hospitalised stay steady for the past two or three weeks, which is a good sign, even with the SOE lifted it didn't go up.

Hopefully with the vaccination rollout we will get to zero very soon.

They probably know a little more than we do.

They do know better than us, but they also haven't answered even one of my questions.

Who do you suggest we test? Will you force healthy people to test without their will?

Right now the Japanese Gov test anyone that comes to a doctor and display symptoms. They don't just go around and testing random people.

In the article you've provided, they talk about the importance of testing, and not how to actually do the testing process.

@Commodore Perry

Why does more testing help?

How would you decide who to test?

What are your criteria?

Do you want to randomly test people?

What is the game plan?

@Ashley Shiba

You read what you want to read. And you disregard solid facts and common sense.

You are too concerned about how many people caught the virus and how many tests have been done.

It just doesn't matter. There are fewer serious cases and fewer corona-related deaths.

That means that the ones who got the virus are the young people who are less to develop a serious illness or any illness at all. So the elderly who are in the high-risk group are being kept safe thanks to awareness and the vaccination rollout.

There are not a lot of tests because there are fewer people with symptoms. So no tests for the healthy!

The best number to show us where we stand is the death rate. Thank god the rates are going down, and hopefully, they will keep going down.

The vaccination rollout started gaining momentum and with this pace, herd immunity is around the corner.

If you want to live the rest of your life in fear then go for it. Lock yourself indoor and distance yourself from the whole world. The coronavirus is probably here to stay, how long are you planning to play hide and seek with it?

The numbers show that we are in a better place, and it will keep getting better the more people will get vaccinated. Luckily the most vulnerable have mostly been vaccinated.

@falseflagsteve

Thanks for the common sense.

I really don't get the fear mongering that's going on here.

Total disregard to the fact that less people are in severe condition, less deaths.

But they are hanging on the low testing, which doesn't mean a thing in this instance anyway.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 388 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 1,520 See in context

Down to 28 death, hopefully, to ZERO very soon.

The fear-mongers will keep arguing that the test numbers are low and that everything is fake. But deaths aren't fake and are the best indicator of the situation.

Hope for the end of this pandemic as soon as possible.

Posted in: Why are Olympics going on despite public opposition, medical warnings? See in context

Stop the fear-mongering!

First of all, sports events with spectators are already in full motion in other states, and even in Japan.

Secondly, all Olympic travelers will come fully vaccinated and tested negative.

Third, by the time the Olimpic games start all of the elderly people (that wish to) will be fully vaccinated.

Fourth, the Japanese people are more at ease now that the vaccination plan started to gain momentum. The polls against the games weren't only 80% it was also 50%, depending on what the guiding questions were. now that 50% got a lot lower.

One more thing, thanks to the upcoming games the Japanese government pulled her head out of where it was stuck and started the rollout of the vaccinations a lot more efficiently. If not for the Olympics the rollout, probably, would have taken another year.

Posted in: Japan extends state of emergency for Tokyo, 8 other areas to June 20 See in context

I don't understand why won't the Japanese gov just use paramedics, med students, vets, pensioners, etc. Heck, even I can administer that injection, it's a simple one, straight to the muscle, no need to find a vein. Give them a 30 min crush course and BOOM, you've got ten thousand more people that can administer the vaccine.

The Japanese people are amazing, so patriotic, and caring about their country and fellow citizens. I'm sure so many of them will be willing to volunteer to help with speeding the vaccination process.

I really wish the best for you all.
