Posted in: WHO, U.S. scientists say Omicron no worse than other virus variants See in context

'Covid-19 has killed more than 5.2 million people around the world since the coronavirus was first declared in late 2019' - This article needs some fact checking. Covid-19 maybe on the death certificates alongside other causes of deaths but has not killed more than 5.2 million people of it's own. Much, much less if you account for the actual causes. 'Covid-19 was detected in more than 5.2 million people who have died', would be a better line.

Already had our bonenkai. Was great fun and enjoyed the second round at the packed bar with pretty, young ladies.

Posted in: Japan to begin trials of COVID-19 vaccination proof at eateries See in context

It's totally fine. This trial of 3 businesses in Japan is going nowhere. Hell they might even get sued for discrimination laws which exist in Japan. They can't force businesses to go along with it, so just go to a business that doesn't go along with the segregation. Drink and be merry. Hopefully only the non discriminatory vaxxed people will join in the fun.

I am staying unvaccinated so I hopefully get banned from entry to shopping malls and stores like this.

So 1 or 2 people out of a million people have severe symptoms and in hospital. Doesn't seem bad at all.

Good on them. Protesting against discrimination and measures your own country's government you don't like in a democracy like Japan is a right. Great to see at least one democracy in the region still allowing freedom for it's citizens.

It was a bit scary. Large shaking when on the sofa watching a movie. I quickly put on a mask to ease the anxiety and make me feel safe.

Posted in: U.S. warns its citizens against travel to Japan due to COVID surge See in context

While amusing in a sense Japan is being told by a foreign country that it's unsafe and a little infected. US nationals are not currently allowed into Japan unless PR, spouses or the like. Some businesspeolle maybe also.

This is a political statement with no teeth. Has nothing to do with the Olympics. It is trying to encourage (likely at the behest of the J Gov) vaccinations in Japan.

That is all.

Boring. Not at all a good idea and does nothing for your survival rate of catching Covid. About 99%

Posted in: Koike says Japan can host Olympics despite virus spike See in context

They should scrap some (aka a great majority of) events and make it better. Extreme sports need to be added or it's just another year of extremely boring run here, run there. Jump this, jump that. Balance on this, balance on that. Where is all the action and threat of injury or death we get in the Winter Games?

Posted in: Tokyo to extend request for bars to shorten hours until Sept 15 See in context

Besides the 23 wards that make up Tokyo, with the exception of a few isolated outer islands, what other "metropolitan" area makes up any other part of Tokyo?

Places like Tachikawa, Tama, Machida and Hachiyoji and between are considered metropolitan areas in Tokyo.

New increases in cases and no one will be leaving or entering Japan in a hurry. For people stranded and wanting to return to jobs and families in Japan, people wanting to visit relatives in their home countries, for taking business or lesuire trips. Increasing infections mean increasing isolation.
