So, if I go to England, I have to self isolate for about ten days, and on my return to Japan, spend six days in a government run isolation unit before spending ten days isolating in my own house. I assume that Suga will be setting an example by doing the same?

I think there is no doubt that one of the reasons is concern over coronavirus infections," Toshiro Muto, CEO of the organizing committee, told reporters. One of the reasons, surely THE reason.

Ian, you said that the Asahi Shinbun called for it to be postponed not cancelled, but here’s their headline, “Prime Minister Suga, please call off the Olympics this summer”. Call off, not postpone.

‘By using a new weapon called vaccines and taking firm preventive measures, it is fully possible" to hold the Olympics safely.’

Vaccines are hardly a ‘new weapon’. He explains it as though he’s talking to a bunch of kids. If it’s ‘fully possibly’, then why have all the local festivals been cancelled?

This idiot is going to hospitalize thousands of people.

I had a class in this place where, as usual, everyone had to wear masks. As it was as private club and this is Japan however, people not taking part in the class we’re allowed to take off their masks and smoke! Unbelievable.

Seriously, if they pull this off and we can all get vaccinated fairly soon then someone needs a $£%#n medal for sorting this mess out. If it’s just business as usual and just another bit of PR then I’ll be the first to say €#%£ you to this inept government. Let’s see what happens.

Yeah, it’s alright foe them isn’t it. They won’t have to deal with the vaccine evading quadruple spike protein strain in the immediate aftermath will they?

Posted in: Japan plans to extend COVID-19 state of emergency beyond May 31 See in context

The thing that annoys me is that the delays in vaccinations are partly due to this idea that Japanese people are somehow unique, and that their DNA is completely different to other Asian people. It wasn’t enough that 2,000 out of the 44,000 people tested were Asian, it was also deemed necessary to conduct the same trials on 160 Japanese people thus delaying the rollout by months.

“One of the reasons for the Japanese long life is their diet.” What? Fried chicken, white bread that’s like foam rubber, so-called ‘hamba-gu’, and other convenience foods that I always seem to see people eating here.

Posted in: Pfizer vaccine effective against COVID-19 variants in Japan: study See in context

Who knows what variants will be around by the time I get it in 2023 or whenever, it’ll probably have mutated into something completely different by then.

Posted in: Pfizer vaccine effective against COVID-19 variants in Japan: study See in context

Japanese DNA is completely unique when compared to dirty foreign DNA. Because of this, only a vaccine produced by Japanese people for Japanese people will be effect. Studies show that, under a microscope, Japanese DNA takes its shoes off when entering a house and is really good at using chopsticks.

“The public should express more outrage about the toll of the coronavirus on individuals.” How exactly? Go out into the streets protesting? Can’t do that due to the virus. Post a comment like this one? Who cares. Write to my local MP? Yeah, right.

Growing up, I always saw images of Japan as this land where nothing was ever late, the future was already here, and it was a model of efficiency. Fast forward to the present and it’s quite a different story. Let’s just hope that this is one promise they can keep.

Apparently, municipalities in Japan have apparently requested a ‘slower vaccine rollout’ in order to notify residents and set up venues for vaccinations. Yeah, because notifying people takes months doesn’t it? It’s not like we’ve got some kind of advanced technology like the internet is it? And it’s not like there’s a sense of urgency is it? I mean, no one's actually dying are they?

Come on Japan, do better.
