Perfect ! We can then use it instead of tear gas on anti vaccine protests. Hey presto , all problems solved.

An ardent U.S. ally, Kosovo, has agreed to take in Afghanistan evacuees who fail to clear initial rounds of screening and host them for up to a year
"fail to clear initial rounds of testing" = "obviously taliban" = "male older than 14" ?

Amid public unease about their marriage due to a money dispute between Komuro's mother and her former fiance, the princess will likely decline a lump-sum payment of up to about 150 million yen ($1.36 million) usually given to female royal family members upon their departure from the household, the source said.

So once you get vaccinated, you have to receive a booster shot every six months until the COVID-19 pandemic is over or for the rest of your life.
The rest of your life .. htmmm.. You make "the rest of your life" sounds like a really long time. Now, with the Delta mutation and hospitals rejecting admissions, if you are unlucky and get exposed to a lot of of the virus , young or old, the rest of your life might be just 2 weeks.

I think the fear of Delta is kicking in and people in general are a bit more cautious

Another challenge is a lack of intensive-care hospital beds. A recent report by a group of experts noted that at the pandemic's start, New Zealand had fewer than one-third the number than the average in developed nations, and little had changed since then.
“The New Zealand health system is still poorly resourced to deal with any large outbreak of a disease such as COVID-19,” the report found.
There that is why NZ's only option forward is to stay under a strict lock-down. It is never too late, NZ can still solve this problem.

People are still catching covid even with two doses, but it's better than being administered to hospital.
Not sure exactly where but I read somewhere that combining AstraZeneca's jab with the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine produces a very strong immune response.

"Covid Zero" is impossible , "Covid but not a lot" is doable I think even with the Delta.

I want to know how many of these new infections were fully vaccinated also how many of them developed severe symptoms and how many of them died how many of them recovered and how long it took.

Most of the children in Sweden by now most likely have been exposed to previous variants of virus and most likely to a degree have developed immunity to COVID19 .
The children in Australia will have to go through this process for the first time with the Delta and until there is a solid indication that the little ones will be fine the ZERO COVID must continue.

In your fairytale version of events, the government is going to estimate my life savings and give it to me anyway. Or will people who held crypto be excluded from that for being naughty people?
LOL. So funny ! Love it

Could be fake news, so J-Gov can take over the crypto market.
I am not excluding the possibility of a "government" involvement in this . but J-Gov ? please ...

Hmmm.. .. many many companies (and this is not just in Japan) , implement dodgy opensource dependencies they know nothing about in their solutions. This gets them faster to market but, unfortunately, almost always introduces vulnerabilities.

In my opinion i still don't get the appeal of this whole thing.
If you are decent , law abiding person maybe you are right, it does seem a bit risky.

Japan's governors urged the central government on Friday to consider imposing a lockdown to better contain a spike in COVID-19 cases, calling the current measures "ineffective" in fighting the highly contagious Delta variant rapidly spreading across the country.
I think what they actually said is they want something lockdown-ish. So maybe a 2020 March SoE type of thing. Schools closed , Shops closed, The problem is how much an experiment of that magnitude will cost ?

It would be interesting to know the real numbers.

Why would they be doing lockdowns after they get vaccinated, and as new medicine is discovered to negate the virus? That would be silly.
I think they might be right about the 10 years.
You see, NZ has purchased more then enough to vaccinate everyone 10 times over and soon I think they will be vaccinated. The dilemma for NZ now comes with the Delta strain. Paranoia of these proportions leads me to believe that NZ very likely will not be vaccinating children and given that the existing vaccines may not be as effective against infections combined with treatments that heavily depend on initial inoculation and hospitalization timing might mean the people NZ is trying to protect with the lock-downs will die if they open up.

Yesterday I google-ed more around the "oxygen station" and managed to find nothing.
I think I should buy an oxygen generator just in case i catch Sars-Cov-2.

Tests showed the man had a version of the Delta strain found in Australia, and Ardern said investigations narrowed down the origin to a person who arrived from Sydney on Aug 7.
Delta strain is believed to be very contagious , know to have escaped vaccines and a real bitch virus. It would be interesting to see how the NZ strategy holds against it.

How will they track shots if there is no reservation? Will they still require the coupons? What if the person needs a travel certificate? How will they stop people from getting the shot before the 3 weeks?

Just like a petrol station. Drive in top up your O2 levels and drive away....
It kind of makes sense doesn't it. Go there breathe for 3 days get better go back home. Better then just die home i suppose

The number of people who received two vaccine shots and still contracted COVID-19 was less than one-15th of the number of unvaccinated people who contracted the virus among cases reported between Aug 10 and 12.
If lately the number of cases is about 5000 average this for 3 days it would mean that the number the number of people who received two vaccine shots and still contracted is about 1000.
Even If only 10 of these turn into serious cases needing 2-3 weeks of hospitalization each Tokyo and Osaka won't be able to handle. So get ready for a long and messy winter.
