To this day, let's remember the souls that fought to Japan and other nations. Leaders made mistakes, and common people should not be blamed for decisions that leaders did in the past.

Meanwhile, we, as representant of modern generation, we should not hold grudge for those men. They made terrible mistakes, but we should learn to forgive even they not asking for it.

Posted in: Pelé, Brazil’s mighty king of ‘beautiful game,’ dies at 82 See in context

When he was a young player, he had to deal with several challenges that modern players wouldn't be able to deal with it. Back 1950s and late 1970s, the soccer was way different than today. Players had to play with heavy ball on fields that was not proper to play (full of holes). In addition to that, their football boots were not confortable as it is today.

Despite of all of this challenge, he(Pelé) was able to overcome everything and, to become the best soccer player ever.

Many politics think that they can solve all problemas by fighting with other countries, when we can make peace and good relations through dialogue.

He was a great person for sure! RIP Inoki Antonio.

The number of new cases is decreasing and, it is a good news.

For those who still complaining about "testing enough" this number will not influence on number of deaths.

Let's be more optimist!

The number of new cases is falling, which is a good news for all of us who live in Japan.

Now, have you guys noted that Omicron has have more negative efect among Asian nations than Western nations?

While Japan, South Korea and Vietnam the number of cases increase too much, in Western nations the number of cases is falling.

Why so?

If this amoung of money would result on India getting rid of poverty, I would understand, but what I can see is, the Indian government is just using Japan and other nations to get the money, but we don't seen any development made by them with Japanese money.

The number of death in Japan on last five days was: 163/169/125/108/180

The number of death in Korea on last three days was: 200/193/164

Based on this datas, we can assume that the number of test will not help the number of deaths decrease. I'm not against testing everyone, but what we are looking for is, ways to decrease the number of deaths or make the number of deaths be ZERO.

Testing and tracing systematically from the beginning helped understanding that blaming foreigners is the proverbial finger that Japan looks at, while others try to deal with the 99% moon the finger is pointing at.

Ok, so you are saying that Korea is right. Have you give a look on how many deaths Korea has? For a country that test everyone, it was supposed to have zero deaths, but it has about 30 deaths per day. What is more important data? The new cases data? The number of tests done? Or the number of deaths?

What does it matter now if the case number is 10,000 or 100,000? Hospital occupancy and deaths are what matters.

It matters for scientific reasons and statistical reasons. Accuracy is everything for those two fields and the less data there is, the more useless all of it becomes. Heck, even from the perspective of government policy it's important. How else do you know what's really working and what's not? How can you plan for the future if you don't know what's going on in the present?

Can you give an example of a country that test everyone and have zero deaths?

The main goal is to have zero deaths and not about compete who test more people.

If test was meant to have zero deaths, certainly you guys could be right, but that is not what we are seeing.

Vaccine by itself will not prevent us to get infected.

Based on this fact, we still need to follow procedures that will help us to overcome this virus thing that are: Washing our hands properly, wearing masks, avoiding staying too late at night on pubs, gargling twice a day, eating food that are rich in Vitamin D as cheese, disifecting the food box that we buy after arriving at home, and before entering and leaving the supermarket disifect our hands.

Some countries have less new cases, but the number of deaths in those countries is very high. As an example we see Uklaine that exceed more than 100 deaths today's report.

In Tokyo the number of cases are very high, but as I have seen the number of people hospitalized with severe symptoms are few. I wonder what kind of healthy condition are those who are among new cases number.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 871 new coronavirus cases; 779 in Okinawa See in context

By looking at new cases number we may think that it is the end of the world, but if we check at other numbers and percentage, we will see that Japan is not as bad as some think. That doesn't mean we should think it is all ok. Nope, it is not ok, but we also can't be crazy about this wave.

There are countries that have much more test than Japan for sure, but these countries have higher number of deaths too. Lets see some and analize it carefully.

UK = 6.118 test per 1m.pop - number of deaths yesterday 313 - number of deaths today 97

Canada =1.403 -44 deaths e 77 deaths.

Of course, both Canada and UK are doing great job regarding testing thing and Japan is way behind them. Despite of Japan not testing enough, I still see Japan a better place to stay. Now, if people think those countries that test more are in better sittuation than Japan, so feel free to go back to those countries since over there are more safety.

The Okinawan prefectural government on Sunday reported 1,533 new coronavirus cases, down 226 from Saturday. A further 429 new cases were reported by the U.S. military in the prefecture.

At least the number of cases in Okinawa decrease. I hope for US side the number of new cases decrease too.
