It would be nice to know the true numbers.
Nobody can know because their test numbers are so pathetic, but multiply it by 10 and that should corresponds more to reality ... Why am I saying that? Because the outbreak is so massive and the positivity rate is sky high!

...... is in 5th place as the country with the highest vaccination rate,
If he compared Japan to the neighborhood that may be kinda true, but on a global scale Japan apparently ranks 14. https://ourworldindata.org/covid-vaccinations
Um since when does the world only has 37 countries? Next time make sure to scroll down or hit the "table" button but even doing that doesn't show all countries ... and no, not 14th place ... more like 70+

Correction: "Suga says adequate measures in place to prevent virus cases spreading to Olympic athletes"
Whatever ... this is so stupid ... It's not like that athletes are there to compete and have been tested beforehand ... right right, they are the spreaders, clearly ... Give me a break Suga! Does he actually read articles outside Japan, like ever?? I'm sorry to say that, Bach is being roasted in Germany. Japan's decision to go ahead with the Olympics despite the fact that Covid numbers are skyrocketing in Japan, are heavily criticized! 7 months ago i told a friend in Japan that the Olympics will happen 100%, no matter what ... and sadly i was right. Get this clown out of office pls!

The mock vaccination targeted a rapid pace -- inoculating 30 people per hour -- as the city hopes roughly 200 people a day can get a jab in a venue of a similar size. That is feasible if local officials can handle 30 people every hour and continue it for seven hours.
Rapid pace, 30 people per hour LOL, wait ... are we talking about Tokyo here???? (sorry but I couldn't keep back my laughter) Are you f.. kidding me??

Unlike some, I do not gloat in the misery of people especially Japanese in Japan.
However, the government of Japan is reaping what it sowed in its lackluster responses to the coronavirus from the very beginnings of the pandemic to now.
I gave you a thumbs up, but that's not the whole picture and it's not just the government reaping what is sown ... unfortunately.

Will 800.000 get tested ?
And what would happen if 100.000 of them appear covided ?
The point is keeping under control so that hospital can manage. Is that the case or not ?
Afraid of the truth, the real numbers? It won't change anything because the health system is already collapsing. Honesty is always the right way! The "Safe Face" tactic, the obvious mistake of continuing the "Go to Campaign", the overall mishandling and downplaying of the outbreak because of the Olympics ... got them where they are now. Sorry but don't get me wrong, fearmongering should never be the pretext to solve anything! I'm from Germany and i understand the cultural differences, but that is my point of view. And I hope this move will make a difference, but I doubt it.

I see ... The rocket man lives up to his name! "facepalm" A few days ago he acknowledged this: "Almost all sectors fell a long way short of the set objectives" I think we can guess where his priorities lie. In warmongering and a change in tactics in state propaganda to secure his own position in the country ...

The prefecture aims to conduct PCR tests for 800,000 people in the city of Hiroshima, which has a population of 1.2 million. The tests will be free and voluntary.
I can't believe my eyes! ... Let me read that again ... Halleluja!! A miracle has happened!! Or maybe not, it's not Koike nor Suga and his cronies... So there are people in higher positions who have common sense, good! A good start, bravo!!

Could almost copy and paste comment from yesterday
Pathetic number of tests, even though a National Holiday (January 11)
> Alarmingly high ratio of positive tests
Tomorrow...more tests (weekday testing from January 12), I shudder in apprehension...
Agree, almost 87k PRC tests conducted on the 12th (tests from private facilities are not included). Let's wait for the numbers tomorrow and i'm pretty sure Suga allready knows. That's why he closed the border completely today ... Now he can say that he reacted wisely in advance, which is of course BS!! Here is the link:

Well ... yesterday i assumed the test-numbers would be lower but this? 2684 tests in Tokyo during an SOE?? I am sorry but for one of the richest countries in the world this is pathetic and everyone involved in this "saving face" taktic, the cover up should be ashamed.
Hey Suga! For most of Japan this is not about money! 80% of Japan give a flying f... about your Olympics! You and your cronies have blood on your hands and i hope the people are smart enough to trow you out as soon as possible! Instead of tackling the virus with honesty, taking all necessary measures for the wellbeing of all your citizens, you have done the opposite and chosen the dishonest "save face" tactic ... rant over, sorry.

Ok ... reading the "positive" comments today, especially from some readers, who only show up if their narration is supported. I have bad news for you, you who deny reality! AG is absolutely correct ... her is the link:
I also assume that tomorrow's test-numbers, on the coming of age day, will also be down. And to those who are saying "SOE is already working" ... get out of here, you have no idea what you are talking about .... sorry!

Up almost 8k, that's a lot and bed occupancy increased by 8% to 98% in just one day. I don't see this ending well ...

Prioritize athletes for vaccine so Tokyo Games can go ahead: IOC member

Essentially, people are waiting to be hospitalized, but there is no room for them, so more and more staff spend their day checking on these people constantly to make sure they are OK while waiting. This is not really sustainable.
Zoroto is right ... another link (I know, I know ... almost everyone knows about this site, but for now I'll keep posting):

May? Really Japan? That's not enough to safe the Olympics, sorry! You can't start vaccinating millions of people a month before the event, it won't work! Just a quick reminder of how long it took for Britain, the only example I know of, to vaccinate most of its people. Oh wait, scratch most ...
I quote from itv.com, news from Thursday January 7:
Boris Johnson has said that as of the evening of 6 January, nearly 1.5 million people in the UK have been vaccinated.
And as far as i know the process started on December 7th with the vaccination of a 90-year-old woman. Now everything is fine in the UK right?!
Hey Suga! Are you guys sure you've really thought this through?

Not very long and Trump is gone, maybe later locked up ... National Gard is on the way but i don't think there will be any voting happening in these chambers today. Why? Security issues, Covid aso. What has the US become ... they are playing right into the CCP's narrative.

Ok guys ... I have a map for you all! Does that look like Tokyo is the only problem?:
Next up, the bed occupancy rate graph for Japan:
does that look like a ToE is unnecessary? Not in my book!
Last but not least, the external link from the article above:
Please let me add, that i understand the frustration about a lockdown but Japan has to make a decision here or face total chaos, like NY did. Downplaying the outbreak, not testing enough was the reason people fell into a false sense of security. I agree that fear mongering is not the way to go but right now you should be afraid of a health system collapse because if this happens it will not only kill Covid patients.
