The guys mentioned in the article are small fry compared to China influencers Jerry Kowal or Nathan Rich (a particularly dodgy individual).

Posted in: Japan to begin discussions on 3rd COVID-19 vaccine shots this week See in context

@Virusrex That is the thing, there is no infinitive possibilities of mutations that allow for the virus to infect easily human cells and at the same time avoid the immune system.

But is this not the mechanism of the HIV/AIDS virus? Isn't that why a vaccine has not been developed yet? Correct me if I am wrong.

Also I would like to know which vaccine you have had. Did you have a choice or did you take what was available to you? If you had a choice what your reasons for choosing one vaccine over another? And lastly did you have it in Japan or abroad?

Posted in: Tokyo reports 1,273 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 8,807 See in context

1273 cases in Tokyo- People in their 20s (317 cases) and their 30s (253) accounted for the highest numbers, while 260 cases were aged under 20. So 443 cases are over 40. Why are number of cases in the older group omitted and the reader has to calculate the number? If anyone is interested in the deaths from Covid in Japan up to 6 September 2021 according to age and male/female ratio you can find it at the link here-http://www.ipss.go.jp/projects/j/choju/covid19/index-en.asp

@Ian Whats wrong with boosters every 3months? As long as it's effective. That would be impossible! Even developed countries couldn't manage it.

@Paul You wrote-Therefore I wouldn't trust a word of a researcher till everything has been pear reviewed and approved. Rather Ivermectin than a vaccine that has been reviewed and approved by a pear! LoL!

Terrible! Just wondering why the 'B' in Black men is capitalized and the 'w' in white civilians is lower case.

@Zichi I was wondering why you waited to get the vaccine. You mentioned previously that their might be some issues with your wife having an allergic reaction. But why did you have to get it at the same time? Wouldn't it have been better, in case one of you got ill or had side effects, to get it at different times? This is not a criticism. I am just wondering how you came to this decision.

@Raw Beer I would like to recommend but I think my comment will be deleted. Look for イベルメクトール//ストロメクトール and you can find a site that accepts convenience store payments if you are worried. @Virusrex My comment was about the fact that my brother took Ivermectin prescribed by a doctor! The story talks about people self medicating and overdosing. I wanted to illustrate that when taken under the directions of a medical professional at the correct dosage there were no ill effects. Why do you see the vaccine as the only option? There are people living in developing countries that can't sit around waiting to die while waiting for the vaccine to show up!!!

My brother in South Africa who got Covid was prescribed Ivermectin by a doctor (not a witch doctor/sangoma!) He took it for 5 days and recovered with no ill effects. If Ivermectin was approved as an over the counter medicine with proper dosages/ relative contraindications shown people wouldn't resort to taking animal grade medicine and overdosing. ANY drug taken (including vitamins and supplements) incorrectly can cause an overdose! Ivermectin (Stromectol,Ivermectol etc.) can easily and legally be bought for personal use over the internet from Japanese sites that sell generic pharmaceuticals.

@Reckless 'anti-parasite medicine for cows and horses' It isn't only for cows and horses so stop talking nonsense. Millions of doses have been used in many countries in Africa for river blindness. It is also used for Strongyloidiasis, scabies and other parasitic infections in humans. My brother in South Africa was prescribed it by a doctor when he got Covid. He survived with zero side effects even though he is a somewhat overweight , heavy drinker in his fifties!

@Expat Vaccinated or unvaccinated- if you catch Covid you still carry the same viral load.

@Kumagaijin This is not Seven Eleven. This kind of craftsmanship requires skills. You can't just pick people off the street to work. The people who choose this kind of work do it because they love it!

Are you really trying to criticize the artistic value of the only musician on Earth with a Nobel prize in literature? 

@Jsapc Just because he has a Nobel Prize doesn't mean he deserved it. They hand them out willy-nilly these days.

Interesting to see how people are so quick to rush to the defense of Dylan. I wonder how different the reaction would be if it was somebody you loathed like Trump.

There was a statute of limitations put in place in New York for historical victims of childhood sexual abuse that closed on 14 August 2021. The woman's claim was obviously filed to beat this deadline.
