No seriously , why ? Free schools , so many nice parks .. I don't think this is just a money problem ?

Wait !

If the problem isn't small -70 degrees capable freezers that can be used everywhere could it be the cost ?

Maybe the doctors in the small hospitals here and there are asking too much ? Like 50K per shot !

Why is the government opting for big vaccination centres and the SDF?

Posted in: Japan to introduce 'vaccine passports' for international travel See in context

I don't oppose the vax passport plan. But beware and stay vigilant of possible forgery

I hope the forgery is good and works.

For the Japanese people this might be the only way to see Europe again.

Posted in: Japan to introduce 'vaccine passports' for international travel See in context

As an IT professional, app developer, I can tell you

Not really ! It doesn't have to be a centralised database. The passport details + vaccination status can be stored wherever the QR points . If the passport bit of response matches your passport , this is fine.

But I do see you point , it has to be done right and by smarter people .

Posted in: Japan to introduce 'vaccine passports' for international travel See in context

Because the makers have not applied for approval? 

Japan signed contracts with Pfizer , Astra Zeneca and Moderna long before the approval applications.

I think this has more to do with trust and national security then paperwork requirements.

Thinking AZ won't happen, If Pfizer and Moderna don't deliver or other problems the Japanese stance towards other options I am sure will change.

It would be a much better idea to set up many smaller centers across the cities.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 635 coronavirus cases; 1,050 in Osaka See in context

They are not testing nearly enough and they are not testing those who die, so no, we don't know what the situation is.

It doesn't make much difference, them testing or not. The situation is bad because the hospitals are down . How bad ? Well on a scale from 1 to 10 it is 10. Will the lockdown solve the transmission problem ? 100% NOT !, Japan is just simply too big for any of the nonsense offered to work.

The only solution to this problem is massive vaccination effort starting tomorrow with all the approved vaccines around the world we can get our hands on.

Posted in: What does Japan's virus state of emergency mean this time? See in context

Japan’s inoculation campaign lags behind many countries, with imported vaccines in short supply

Short supply ? Yeah right that's the problem here

Posted in: Japan rolls out vaccine slowly, despite looming Olympics See in context

At this point Sputnik is relying on unsupervised data from the developers that have been caught acting unethically on human experimentation

I for one am perfectly okay with experimenting on certain criminals for example. Infecting sputnik vaccinated convicted murderer with c19 is not so bad is it ? It will give you the results you need and very fast .

Posted in: Japan rolls out vaccine slowly, despite looming Olympics See in context

I bet if you were tell 100 Russians they must take Sputnik V or the Pfizer vaccine, at least 99 would choose the former. The 1 would be the village idiot.

I think it would be 50:50 and if Pfizer was the only choice I am almost certain the Russians wouldn't complain much . Politics aside the Russians I have had chance working with had the outmost respect for both USA and GER. The things with USA have gone a bit cold but I think Germans won't complain much if offered the Sputnik V.

Posted in: Japan rolls out vaccine slowly, despite looming Olympics See in context

Experts say the cautious rollout is informed partly by past vaccine controversies. Strict rules include a requirement that vaccines be trialled locally on top of international testing.

It is perfectly understandable to be sceptical when presented with something you don't quite understand.

And the solution is simple. Legalise the vaccines like all the sorts of alcoholic drinks , tobacco and Chinese medicine. If the experts in Japan can't make the call at least give people the right to make the call themselves.

Also , I personally am even willing to even pay up to 100.000JPY per shot

How do you get these numbers ?

What's been said here in Japan is never matches reality.

There is metrics, there is interpretation, you've got business , corruption also isn't unheard of.

Posted in: Fujifilm starts new late-phase trial of Avigan in Japan for COVID patients See in context

What ? So they aren't using avigan for C19 ?

I was under the impression that , both avigan and rmdesivir are options in Japan and people can use them should they choose to do so.

The fact that hospitals are at capacity with severe cases makes you wonder doesn't it ? If they aren't using then why not ? If they are using avigan and rmdesivir then obviously it doesnt work so there us no need for this .

Japan only started vaccinating its sizable elderly population this month and health experts say it may take till the winter or longer for most of the general populace to get access to the shots.

LOL ! The winter of 2021 / 2022 ? Who are these experts ?

Posted in: Gov't to impose state of emergency soon in Tokyo, Osaka, Hyogo See in context

I think I have a solution to the covid19 problem in Japan.

Host free but mandatory concerts, costume parties , close proximity ramen eating competitions ans everything else that might help everybody 40- catch the virus .

There you go herd immunity in a month or so, easy peasy lemon lemon squeezy

Ooohhhh..50M ...is that not quite a bit ? How many freezers do you need for that ?

Now I am worried Japan won't be able to properly store the vaccines either.

Has anyone heard anything about the actual storage and handling plans for these ? Do we have to worry about that ? Virusrex?

What exactly is the point of locking down ?

People are tired of this petty politics , tell us clearly what is this lockdown going to achieve and also tell us what if it doesn't .

People pay medical insurance and get rejected from hospitals, there are no beds no ICU's and nurses work for peanuts.

There are plenty of vaccines out there but only one is approved of which a million doses in freezers .

The only other way to get immune and stay mentally sane is to roll the dice and catch the virus.
