The Self Righteous are inconsiderate of those poorer than themselves, and ignore their plight to this day, clearly those "me first" attitudes are akin to those trying to escape the sinking of the Titanic of past days and such attitudes will continue forever as is, our human Nature, regardless the efforts of such valiant few.

People wishing to Travel during this Pandemic are not smart. I suspect it's mainly the tabloid media that are "egging" on the need of the people to travel on vacation.... most who are in their right mind, would not travel overseas should those same Tabloids be promoting the "stay at home" and promote the "visit your local attractions to support your local British community" approach.

And as for the highly elevated property prices in HK... the Anti-CCP group has published their belief (based on what they say is internal intelligence sources) that the CCP are intending to Nationalize all privately owned property.

Have a think about that for a moment.

The CCP can do it. And if they did... just what would happen ? They won't care about the Foreigners, and no legal issues would arise since the CCP makes the Law. You will still owe the Banks, what you borrowed from them, for something that you no longer own...

If this is really true, then bad times are truely ahead, for a lot of people, and a lot of Financial Institutions, and... HK.

If you keep out of Politics and just do as you're told by "Officials" then you'll be fine in China and HK.

The only problem is, that those "Officials" can sometimes be corrupt, and who is there to keep them in Check ? There's no one - the Press can't do anything now. The Lawyers can't say anything now. The Rich with "influence" can't do anything now.

At the moment, HK has it's old leadership in place, and they're just doing Beijing's beckoning, but what will come after them... some ruthlessly corrupt individuals simply in to milk the system for all they can get at the expense of whoever is in their way - such as is often the case heard about on Social media within China, and often very quickly suppressed...

HK may not notice big changes now, but give it time. A couple of years maybe, and then it's going to be too late. Who will care then ?

Posted in: Google and Facebook say returning office workers must be vaccinated See in context

These Tech Companies may want to consult their Lawyers over their Indemnity Insurance clauses. Perhaps the Government has provided them with some backup, saying that they will cover any Claims against them, should an Employee to have a negative life result directly as a consequence of taking this inoculation.... though like the experience in Japan, proving cause of Death is always tricky.

Though, if as I suspect, the inoculations are not the "so-called" Shields that they're being made out to be, then who is responsible for forcing people to take them ?

And what are the long term effects of having introduced such a vaccine into your Body, particularly when considering future inoculations - building up to a perfect Storm ? In Western Countries, people seem to like to take Seasonal Flu Jabs, unlike those in poorer Countries who can't afford them, so after the Covid inoculation will the next Seasonal Flu jab kill you ?

That's not going to be bad news for those in poorer Countries, even if they've received a donation of the Covid jab, but it would somewhat devastate the Established Economies....

The Anti-CCP movement believe that COVID is a purposely Engineered virus for wiping out those who are against it, and have provided their "evidence" of past writings in so called Military sourced documents ... who knows the real truth.

I still stand by my wish to let all those worthy individuals within Poorer Countries receive the inoculation before I do. They suffer different hardships in life, and loosing the Family Breadwinner for them would be a Death sentence - but for me/us, perhaps a Godsend.

Posted in: Suga says no link between Olympics and virus surge See in context

For me, I would prefer to be the last person on this planet to have the vaccination especially whilst there are many more, under privileged people, in poorer Countries, who are the sole bread-winners for their Families, whom I consider may be more worthy than me, and therefore would benefit more than me to receive any vaccination that may have been reserved for me - so please donate to them first.

If you've had a vaccination, then good on you, and good luck, but... don't be selfish, mask up, and observe Social distancing.

He's probably right wrt the general Public who've had no contact with those involved with the Olympics - however.... there a lots of locals involved in the Olympics and I've seen some - around the Tsukiji area wandering around without facemasks. So they could be super spreaders - even if "vaccinated" ... which we're beginning to see doesn't stop you getting the virus, and given the hospitalization statistics doesn't mean you wont die from the virus should you get it.

People who've been vaccinated are being unwittingly dumb in their behavior - they believe that they are immune, and/or can't carry spread the virus... this attitude needs to change.

Statistics can be easily manipulated to support your side of the argument, such as the following shows.... namely you're more likely to die if admitted to Hospital if you:ve had 2 jabs, than if not or just 1.

COVID-19: Data shows vaccines reduce risk of hospitalisation and death - but you need to read it with a clear head | UK News | Sky News

Combined with the CDC's announcement that you should still wear facemasks when indoors even if you're fully inoculated just shows that we're making it up as we go along. Just hope that we're not making a repeat of the thalidomide disaster.

This one is interesting... the CCP really want you to catch their next virus, so encourage the "don't wear a face-mask if you've been inoculated' stance.... hence the big down votes I received. Well, you will all see soon enough.

Posted in: Tokyo Olympics see 16 more COVID-19 cases, bringing total to 148 See in context

All these Athletes are "inoculated" with a vaccine that prevents them from catching the Virus.... right ?

There's a 30 days incubation period during which time, tests may not pick up the virus....

Being Athletes, they're generally fitter than the rest of us, and most have no underlying health conditions, so should not face serious issues with the virus.... with or without that inoculation.

What's going to be troubling is the new virus that the CCP will release, which targets those who have had their inoculations and finishes off the job that they started in the first place.

Some Japanese Women can be very hard to read - very two faced, on the hand, very keen to pleasure her man - acting young girl like and all that (especially the noises...) - the art of being kawaii ; but on the other, can turn viciously nasty. Perhaps sort of like living with a real-life Dr. Jekyll and Ms Hyde.... I'm not saying all are like that, though I sort of stayed clear of them after a couple of relationships exhibited a transformation of disbelief.

Having the vaccination does not prevent you from either being a Carrier/Spreader or becoming ill and needing Hospital treatment. Its also statistically hard to prove that you would not have had to Hospital treatment without it, should you have caught the virus.

Never-the-less not wearing a face mask in Public .. during the Olympics, is a "No No"... and regardless whom you are... without one, it's a "walk on by" situation....

Posted in: Tokyo reports 1,763 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 5,020 See in context

I'm only telling you what I see from around where I live, and even if I could post pictures of those peoples who walk around without facemasks, I probably wouldn't be allowed, without first airbrushing distinguishing features in order to protect their privacy... regardless upon how careless they are to the health of those amongst whom they wander.

Having an inoculation against a virus does not prevent you from spreading it.

In the case of COVID, you can catch this virus up to 30 days prior to showing symptoms.

So, facemasks, they're not something to be ashamed of, but to be proud to be wearing - you're doing your bit to save others and that should be seen as the "Hero" in you.

Also, the ban of Alcohol within Restaurants is a bit farcical since people will talk loudly with/or without having consumed it, as I also observed tonight.. and those were local Japanese Peoples too, not Foreigners.

I visited the Olympic Village today too, and saw several people (some foreigners/non-Asian) walking around without masks, and that's in the neighboring ku.

The Police - who were very prevalent, do not appear to have any powers to enforce face-mask wearing.
