With the quasi-emergency status, prefectural governors can ask restaurants and bars in targeted cities to shorten operating hours and impose a fine of up to 200,000 yen for noncompliance.
So, basically a state of emergency without calling it a state of emergency..due to the upcoming Olympics. Time to #canceltheolympics

I have noticed that everytime there is talk of the Olympics being cancelled by any senior members, the number of tests/positive cases go up.

CNN is reporting this now:
With 100 days until the Tokyo Olympics, Japan has vaccinated less than 1% of its population. That's a problem.
When 2020 Tokyo Olympics volunteers have in recent weeks asked officials how they'll be protected from Covid-19, given the foreign athletes pouring into Japan for the event and the country's low vaccination rate, the answer has been simple.
They'll be given a small bottle of hand sanitizer and two masks each.
"They don't talk about vaccines, they don't even talk about us being tested,"

Tokyo Gov Yuriko Koike on Wednesday pledged to suppress the spread of the coronavirus in the Japanese capital to ensure a safe Olympics as it quietly marked 100 days to go until the global sporting event.
The only thing she will suppress is the TRUTH. How will this be accomplished? Lower the number of tests, and false reporting. The sad part is outside of Japan, people don't know the T R U T H.

What is wrong with these people in charge? Watch the man get sentenced to prison..because he is a man. This is just insane!

It DOES pose safety concerns! Why do you think the US Navy dumps anything radioactive into the ocean beyond 100nm from the shore? They do it because by the time it reaches shore (if) it has been dilluted and is safe..smh

Guns don't kill people. People kill People. Taking away the guns will not solve the problem. Brb..got to go pay my annual NRA dues.

Now not only will there be a crazy high number of COVID cases, but cancer numbers will be rising as well.

There will be no way to "reposess" the MILLIONS of guns that are circulating in America. Most of the time, the guns used in School schootings come from the students home. When a gun in used in a School shooting, the parents should be liable as if the gun was properly locked there would be no way to use it. My father was a GunSmith, and I grew up with guns all around me, some even loaded. My father taught me at a young age to respect firearms. Making guns illegal or writing laws will do nothing. Look at drugs in Mexico for example. Drugs are Illegal, but guess what the highest paying job in Mexico is? You guessed it! Being a drug dealer!

I am not a Anti-Vaxer...However I forgot to get my flu shot last year..and well no flu! Every year I got the vaccine I got the flu a few times. I may forget to get my COVID Vaccine as well..
-8 ( +15 / -23 )
Of course they got infected...You can't expect a vaccine to be 100% effective if it was made quickly. The company's that made the vaccine were not concermed about the effectiveness, but were more concerned about making something they could use as a quick cash grab!

How many times does this guy have to arrested for the Police to take FURTHER actions. He obviously has not learned anything...

Police said the driver told them he saw the girl sitting on a slope right beside the tracks about 25 meters ahead and applied the emergency brake but couldn’t stop in time.
I have seen hundreds of deaths, I have seen war. This situation is not pretty! This could have been avoided if someone was watching the little girl. RIP Angel! See you on the other side!

Japan: Here is an Idea! Let's put people with MINOR COVID-19 symtoms TOGETHER with people who have NO Symtoms! This way, the people that possibly have the virus, will spread it to the people who have no symtoms!
THIS MAKES PERFECT SENSE!

"Didn't know what to do". The only thing he didn't know what to do is not knowing what to do without his fathers pension payments. Are these kids (yes, he is a kid as he still lives at home) really such a degenerate they truely don't know what to do when someone dies?

Remember folks! The Virus only transmits person to persin after 8 P.M. It also only transmits in bars and eatries.

Discrimination...that is the problem. The way they are treated by others.
-1 ( +16 / -17 )
In fiscal 2019, 273 teachers at public schools across the country received disciplinary action or a reprimand for sexual misconduct, the second-highest figure on record, according to the ministry.
Isn't these acts a crime? There should be no reprimand ir disciplinary action. The only thing that should be done is the Police should be notified and the pervert arrested and sent to Jail. It is hard to un-normalize something that WAS the norm.

Of course they will release the water...one would be crazy to think that thr J-Gov't actually cares about people. I challenge them this. As the water is being poured into the Ocean, they need to wash fish with it. Then they need to have a Non-Social distance maskless party like they like to have and they all can eat the fish!

No Vaccine for me! I don't trust anything that was made in a few months. I won't let the Gov't control me.

Experts on a government panel
I love how they always say this! I am sure not ONE infectious disease expert was on this panel. Remember when the EXPERT blew the whistle on the cruise ship in Yokohama, and was escorted away? That is why the J-Govt only uses THEIR "Experts". If they used a real expert the truth would come out! We can't have the truth! The TRUTH must be surpressed!
