This guy is just on one big ego trip.

Whats with Okinawa counting the US military cases separately?

No surprise at all and totally self-inflicted.
Like Rafa said, all he had to do was get a vaccine, instead he tried to game the system.
1.Applied for the wrong visa (excuse he was given wrong information by TA)
2.False information on travel card (his assistants mistake)
3.Attended public events knowing he was positive (didn’t want to disappoint the organizer)
4.His PCR test results do not match up (still no explanation as to why)
This is more than enough to justify him getting kicked out.
Better luck next year.

Djokovic poses no danger to anyone...
I agree, its not like he attends public event with children knowing he's covid positive...

He won't make to the French open either - Macron has made his displeasure very clear with non-vaccinated people.
6 ( +9 / -3 )
He will have his visa cancelled today.
7 ( +11 / -4 )
this is from 18000 tests - I can't recall the amount of tests ever being this high - its double the usual amount (which is not saying much).

no way Federer or Nadal could ever hold up to this kind of negativity...
neither of these players would try and use a loophole to get into a country solely to avoid being vaccinated.
13 ( +13 / -0 )
His PCR document does not look right either - his negative test seemingly was recorded before his positive test...

When his dad compared his confinement to the martyrdom of Jesus this whole thing became one big joke. Him and his family are absolutely full of it.
If any normal person tried to get through immigration with and incorrect visa, an incorrect travel card, and a PCR test with mis-matching numbers, they would on the first plane home. He's been allowed in, but according to his family/fans he's being persecuted.

This is just getting silly now.
Now Djokovic says he made an “error of judgment” by attending events unmasked after Dec 16 when he knowingly tested positive via PCR test. These events included children. Thats some error.
As for his other error he is now admitting, in his travel form, where he indicated he hadn’t travelled in 14 days before traveling to Australia, he now says his team filled it out and made an unintentional mistake.
Then of course just reported a short while ago, and perhaps being the most serious, there are discrepancies with his PCR documentation.
The confirmation code of his negative result on Dec 22 is 50,000 numerations less than his positive result, suggesting “it was recorded before his positive result” Did the Djoker purchase a fake negative test?

He should have his visa revoked and be punished for lying on an official government document, as any regular person would be - no exceptions or excuses.
Not sure we can say he lied, but it's like at an airport when you are asked if you packed your own bags - even if you didn't, if you say yes, you are ultimately responsible for whats in the bag - even if Tennis Australia packed it for you!

I can understand why many folks are saying his visa should be cancelled - the whole intention of a medical exemption is for those people who for medical reasons (allergic/immune compromised...) are unable to take the vaccine. That is intent of the law. Djokovic has used it in a way that it was not intended - as a loophole in other words. It doesn't help him that he has openly posted anti-vax things on his social media. It was reported today in a news conference by his family, that he knew he was covid positive on Dec 16, the day before he appeared unmasked at a charity event for children. When asked why he attended the event if he knew he was positive, his family "abruptly ended the press conference". All of this does not garner sympathy.
10 ( +13 / -3 )
So he didn't even fill his declaration form himself, which turned out to be incorrect. Presumably he had to sign it though and as mentioned in he article, it would've been filled out based on information provided by himself.
Who's fault is that?

From the MOFA website..
From 0:00 am (JST) December 2, 2021, as emergency precautionary measure from a preventive perspective against coronavirus variant Omicron (B.1.1.529), validity of visas already issued by December 2, 2021 are suspended except for the status of residence of “Spouse or Child of a Japanese National”, “Spouse or Child of a Permanent Resident” or “Diplomat” for the time being.This measure does not apply to foreign nationals who departed from overseas before 00:00 am (JST) on December 2, 2021 and arrive in Japan after the time.
So to me this means spouse/children of foreign visa holders (not PR/Japan Nationals), are NOT allowed to come into Japan if they left before Dec2. Or have I misread it?

With an endemic disease which can still be spread by the vaccinated, there is no basis for enforcing vaccinations.
You conveniently left of that vaccinations reduce likelihood of death and serious illness

The Djoker still hasn't explained why a day after he tested positive for corona on Dec 16, he appeared unmasked at a charity event with a bunch of children. Of course he will probably say he didn't know he was positive, but then why did he feel the need to get tested? If he was feeling unwell, he should've waited for his results and not risk infecting a bunch of children.
13 ( +25 / -12 )
If they didn’t want him in the country they shouldn’t have sent him an official invitation.
They didn't - Tennis Australia did.

How about this: Percentage of people in Tokyo that have tested positive = 0.00874%
Percentage of people in Tokyo with severe symptoms = 0.00002%
Sorry, I didn't realize the entire population of Tokyo has been tested.
4 ( +19 / -15 )
almost a 1500% increase from last Saturday - this is after a 1000% increase yesterday.
-4 ( +8 / -12 )
Actually you need at least 10,000 tests to get 10,000 cases and we all know that won't happen. Keep testing low, keep numbers low. Avoid panic, feel good.
yep, I realize Tokyo will probably never see 5 figures because of its testing "strategy"
13 ( +21 / -8 )
No one is dying or getting sick so no need to panic
Factually wrong on both counts, but you already know this.
14 ( +28 / -14 )
That is over a 1000% increase from last Friday!
You need less than 1000% increase to get to 10000 cases next Friday.
Whether you are pro or anti vaccines/lockdowns, this is a big problem!
6 ( +20 / -14 )
Only 3 people hospitalized. Really no need for any restrictions if Tokyo isn't in any danger of hospital overcrowding.
I love this logic, there is no problem yet, so let's carry in as is until there is a problem, then react!
3 ( +16 / -13 )
The worry here is the exponential rise in cases in just days - way way faster than Delta ever spread.
14 ( +24 / -10 )
In addition, it is being reported by the Sydney Morning Herald, the federal government sent the head of Tennis Australia 2 letters in November clearly stating previous infection is not an acceptable reason for exemption into the state of Victoria, but received no reply from them. This is Tennis Australia's fault.
14 ( +19 / -5 )
To clarify, his medical exemption was that he had caught covid in the previous 6 months, which is a valid exemption accepted by Tennis Australia. The problem is however, it is NOT a valid exemption accepted by the Victorian federal border patrol (and is this is explicitly clear on their website), which is why he is being kicked out. Novak's team has made the mistake of assuming because Tennis Australia accepted a previous infection has being a valid exemption, that border authorities would also accept which not the case. Tennis Australia has screwed up big time, and to a degree Novak's team for not checking border rules properly.

Not it isnt.
Report from NSW Health in September 2021
ICU numbers are 1/6th of what they would need to be to have a "moderate" impact.
yeah, lets' quote figures from 4 months go, when Omicron did not even exist.
6 ( +8 / -2 )
And this folks, is why number of infections IS very important, despite what some on here might say. Australia's health system is now being overwhelmed because of the share number of cases, despite Omicron being less severe than Delta.
