In my 20+ years of living here, I've never read the courts finding a defendant unfit to stand trial. This is pure kabuki theater.

Absent credible evidence provided by the deniers, I'm just gonna say "Yahooooo!" about the data.

I go with some government manipulation of the data in time for the elections.
You said the same thing when the Olympics were approaching. But why reduce the numbers so drastically to make them unbelievable?! If the govt were manipulating the data, wouldn't they make it a gradual decrease?! Instead the numbers are plunging. The govt is smart enough to manipulate the data but so stupid that they would make it unbelievable. Does that make sense? Smfdfh

We really need to find out how the virus was defeated in
Easy! Over 70% of the population has had at least 1 jab, and over 60% has had 2. Ever hear of herd immunity? Scientists were raving about it last year, and it's almost been achieved here.

What if you refuse to cooperate, can they refuse entry? As far as I know it's against the law to refuse entry without a legal reason
Even if it isn't legal, I'm all for it and would pay the fine for those establishments that are found to be wayward of the law. I'm tired of selfish people who don't trust science. Get over it for crying out loud.

We better enjoy these low numbers while they last. From next week on these figures will rise.

my elderly student called it correctly. he said that kono was too 'young' and therefore it would go to kishida. you know japan, no one can jump ahead of the que, no matter how popular they might be.

It's not "doom and gloom" unfortunately, just common sense:
how is predicting that Japan's sixth wave will be worse than the others common sense? It's actually not common sense because the world has never experienced such phenomena before. It's just the same blathering that you always post trying to sound superior and yet at the same time worried about the common man. Smgdfh

It is done on purpose. The few clear details the government provides the easier it is to mislead the public.
the limited info is being provided by Japantoday. There is a great invention called google where you can get more data concerning the COVID situation in Japan.

Nice catch there, Zaphod (and great screen name, President!). Judging by your gif, I'd say you were a fellow WWF fan.

To ignore what these pathetic "voluntary" SOEs have done is to deny the suffering and discrimination of tens of thousands of people whose livelihood depends on the tourist industry, hospitality industry, services industry, resturant industry, and others, not to mention the owners of said restaurants and bars and hotels and stores and businesses.
What?!?! I'm can't discern your point because of all the detritus. Are you saying the govt shouldn't have put in place any SOE? So all these businesses should have been allowed to remain open while the virus was ravaging the country?! It's just incredulous the straw man arguments you create and the red herrings you throw out in order to just complain.

Is there any reason no information is available as to the number of sick people in Tokyo who are suffering at home?
Ever hear of doing simple Google searches? I'm sure someone of your genius can type: tokyo covid and readily find your answer. Instead another long winded blathering about how bad The Man is. Smgdfh x200

Why isn't there mass testing for example? Why don't we have specifics on how many infected people in Tokyo are left to fend for themselves at home?
Why do you CTs always push the testing narrative? Has it actually helped any country prevent the spread of covid? Or has it actually just delayed the spread?
And what would specifics about rationed care help in any way? You want to push the anti-japan Inc narrative as often as possible, but how will it help?! Smgdfh 2x

I really can't wait for the day that this isn't "news" anymore. Maybe an end-of-the-week blurb is all that will be needed. Until then, it's undeniable now that these figures are not manipulated, and that vaccinations are the reasons why. With over 63% of the population having at least one jab.

Although the CTs know fully well that Japan doesn't test asymptomatic people, they still harp on the number of tests being conducted. Give it a rest, please. It's kinda sad and pathetic at this point.
3 ( +14 / -11 )
Yay! The numbers are down and do are the CTS! But I'm sure they're cooking up a new illogical reason as we speak.
-2 ( +1 / -3 )
Why do the CTs only believe the data when it rises or is at a high level? There's always an excuse when the numbers drop, but those braniacs always trust when there's an increase.
-17 ( +12 / -29 )
now that the infection rate is decreasing, the CT (conspiracy theorists) are in search of another excuse. For some reason, now it's the number of tests being administered. Smgdfh...like every ward in Japan has decided together to limit the number of tests. Why now? Why not when the number of infections surpassed 5,000?! Just ridiculous the logic being used.

ironic that a country that abhors street skateboarding has two gold medal and a bronze champs! congratulations to this awesome trio, believe in your dreams no matter what anyone/your country says.

first off, the travel advisory issued by the US state department was meaningless since Japan has banned all tourism. Only a very limited number of business or student travel is currently allowed.
secondly, the US offering support for holding the olympics is not related to the travel advisory. the travel advisory is meant for tourists.
why are so many people bent on not holding the olympics? the athletes and the travel parties will all have been vaccinated. they will live in a bubble in the olympic village. i see very little risk in any of them either spreading the disease or becoming infected with the disease.

Who cares about last Monday?! The figures will drop from this week due to the SoE. But I'm sure you'll have some "theory" as to why (rolling eyes and smgdfh).

Quite a fitting name if you ask me.
And I totally agree. Is being a jerk a crime nowadays? If that's the case then most famous people and politicians should be locked up!
