Oh sure, Olympics were the problem.

Not the packed trains, the useless SOE, the non-existent track and tracing, the delay of vaccine rollout....

The sad thing is that Japan had lost an year and half. Nothing learned from the other countries.

Now it's facing the same problems of the western countries faced with the first wave of march 2020.

It's ridiculous.

Greece went bankrupt also due to the Olympics cost.

It's totally a nonsense amount of money.

I don't understand this memorials while, in the meantime, you haven't signed the Non Proliferation Treaty and you stockpiling US bombs.

It's a great Dystonia that doesn't make you credible.

It seems that Japan is next to live the situation that Europe faced during march 2020.

That's a pity, because in this year and a half, the government did nothing and didn't learn from Western countries.

Now, the only way to stop the transmission chain is to do a real lockdown, close business and shops that are not necessary, ease smartworking, support workers and closed companies with money (oh if only the J-gov could have in the pocket the Olympics money) and start the tracking activity.

And, in the meantime, upgrade the vaccination system in a more smarter way.

No other way could work.

I don't understand how, an advanced country like Japan should be, based the vaccination campaign on a postal voucher.

In Italy (and Europe) you, as a citizen, you have to login on a dedicated website writing your taxid, the system recognize your age and if you are in the group for which vaccinations are open, you could book your shots.

People with underlying conditions could book too without following age group check.

Hakam:

Protect them from what? From being held accountable for breaking another country's laws while in that country?

> When you're in another country, you're subject to that country's laws.

I was sarcastic. Usually US appeal for their jurisdiction even if a US citizen infringe the law in another country. This mean that their citizens remains unpunished.

In Italy happened a lot of times.

It's strange that US doesn't protect their citizens as usually.

If no spectators are allowed, if Tokyo is in SOE etc etc why they expect overcrowded venues and traffic?

The same athlete vanished few years ago in Australia. So I think it's a bad attitude of him to disappear in a foreign country...

This is result of a wasted year. A wasted year where Japan has done little to none to fight covid.

Low number of testing.

No contact tracing.

No serious lockdown.

Slow vaccine rollout.

Politicians done everything to hide the dust under the carpet due to the Olympics.

And now look at the disaster.

Posted in: COVID state of emergency likely for Tokyo Olympics See in context

The only way to get read of the virus is a real lockdown and a real strategy for pcr test. At least until 70% of the population is vaccinated.

If you can't lower the number of infected people during summer I don't understand how japan could pass the winter months without issues.

Olympics are only one of the issues. Offices are open. Restaurants are open. People could move freely. Asymptomatic are not tracked. This is a recipe for the perfect disaster.

In Italy we perform approx 80.000 test each day.

I don't know how it's possible to track and block the spreading in Japan with such low level of test

If you do 100 pcr test and all of this test are done to nightlife workers there's 100% chance that you will think that covid19 will spread only due to the nightlife companies.

The same old story.

Soon also in Japan doctors will start to take out from ICU older people because younger ones have more chance to survive.

In Italy we had 12 ICU beds per 100.000 inhabitants. In Japan only 7 beds. And everyone of you known how things were going in Italy.

Lockdown and tests also to asymptomatics are the only way to slow down the progression, because the problem of the covid19 is not the crude mortality rate, but the amount of people that needs ICU.

Posted in: 568 new cases of coronavirus reported in Japan See in context

I'm from Italy.

It seems that Japan learned nothing from Italy, UK and USA. There isn't any magical protection from coronavirus.

The 500 cases registered are only the beginning because they reflect a situation of approx 7/10 days ago.

As the situation get worse and ICU become full the mortality rate will start to jump up.

I'm sorry but the only way to slow the pandemic is to lockdown and make sure to test also the asymptomatics!
