Sadly i think there is too much focus on energy and not enough on pollution and resource depletion. With oceans full of plastic and fish stocks declining due to overfishing and destruction of habitats etc. the world needs to find a more wholistic approach to saving the planet and thereby ourselves.

The link to ALL the stats is at the bottom of the article... 7000 people were tested in Tokyo yesterday.
Gee there are some hypochondriacs on here! How many people do you think die on a daily basis in japan???
50 people Japan wide is nothing! While it is sad for the families of those people there were most likely comorbidities involved.
The problem with the corrupted system of testing in japan is that for asymptomatic and mild cases you can't get tested unless you are willing to pay 30000yen or can get a GP cert and GPs aren't giving out these certs easily.
What is needed is a quick antibody test to see who has already had the virus. I guarantee there would be a very large part of the population who have already been infected and gotten over it.
Other than that it is just fear mongering by those wanting everyone to get vaccinated on forums like this and in the media. If people are in a high risk group they should get vaccinated..all others should just move on and get out and about

Sad to see the leopard hasn't changed it's spots. I suppose Lapid has his hands tied by Bennet. At least he actually condemned the death chants probably a first for a Jewish Israeli politician.

What about if its the other way around when you account for secondary illnesses?

I would imagine that based on the fact that Covid is currently rampant in japan those at greatest risk from contracting Covid during the Olympics are the athletes and company.
I mean testing under 10K people a day in greater tokyo is not what you would call thorough...and of those few tested about 10% have corona...hmmm

How many vaccinations will be enough and as people still contract Covid after being vaccinated when will shutdowns end?? The world is flying blindly into the abyss over this. Vaccinate those most at risk and let others who have zero chance of dying from Covid choose and let the world move back to normality.

I love the scaremongering comments. Seems like any who question the vaccines which HAVE been linked to deaths and serious side effects are scare mongers. Where as those who say follow the pied piper OR ELSE are on the moral high ground...???
As long as there is choice no problem

So once the elderly and high risk groups have been vaccinated and survived...what is the need to vaccinate those with zero risk of death with a Vaccine that has a non zero risk of death??
Other variants? You do know other strains of the corona virus have been around for a very long time right and the common cold...wait for it....is a corona virus!!! OMG the sky is falling...
seriously people are losing their minds over this for nothing

Why vaccinate the young as long as the elderly and high risk groups are already vaccinated?
Ludicrous! The vaccine is still only provisionally approved

The problem with comparing mortality rates with confirmed infection rates is that it has been shown that actual infection rates for Covid are likely 6 ~ 20 times greater than recorded infections. With most people contracting this illness showing minimal to no symptoms is it any wonder the numbers are way off. In any normal year 2-3 million people die from influenza related illnesses like pneumonia. The witch hunters want to label any who question as antivaxxers...what a load of bunk! The mRNA are new and under studied for long term effects. NONE of these vaccines are fully approved! To just offer up your child for vaccination based on current evidence is ludicrous. No doubt the naysayers here don't even have children...
Vaccinate the most at risk leave the others be!

Why vaccinate the young when there are risks associated with the vaccine but none with Vivid??
Vaccinate the elderly and sick let others choose!

There is nothing about nuclear that is green! The sooner Japan moves away from it the better!
With most rivers already dammed in Japan anyway they should put hydro at the top of the list as a green alternative for baseload power.

Good on them! The chances of dying from corona are about the same as the flu if you are young and healthy basically zero! This fear and paranoia has to stop. There were usually 3 million deaths a year from influenza and pneumonia related illnesses according to WHO statistics but as Influenza deaths weren't tracked as closely as Corona comparisons look to make Corona more dangerous when that is not the case. This is just another heavy influenza like virus. The mental anguish brought about by the fear mongers and witch hunters is unacceptable. Most people aside from the hypochondriacs have had enough! Time to move on and get back to normal. Those at high risk can access the vaccine along with the hypochondriacs, others should be able to decide based on evidence which suggests there is basically zero chance of death from this virus if you are under 70 and have no secondary illnesses.

The thing with Australia is most people are nervous about the speed of authorisation and efficacy of vaccines especially the astra Zeneca one. Lock downs are also wearing very thin. As others said, COVID is here to stay so vaccinate those most at risk of serious complications and let the world return to the new normal...whatever that is

With 30% of the population born overseas and 50% with relatives OS the country is starting to run out of patience with the Govt and the draconian secret kingdom policy. Vaccinate the most at risk let others choose!
Open the borders now! :)

By the amount of negativity surrounding this, anyone would think people are more interested in seeing her after game performance in the press gallery than her on court performance!!!??? Absolutely ludicrous. She is a tennis player.
I imagine all the reporters are worried they'll be out of a job and free travel around the world...

If the 1 or 2 % of the population who are at high risk because of secondary illnesses are vaccinated then there is no need to vaccinate the rest of the world unless it is to fill the multinationals like Pfizers bank accounts!

Easy Just vaccinate those at risk and let the others be. The only people dying from this influenza like illness are those with secondary illnesses or about 0.1 % of those infected if the actual infection rates were used.
Too many hypochondriacs on these forums ;)

Cruz is bought and paid for by AIPAC.
The greatest thing that will come out of this tragic war crime is that at this stage netanyahoo is out and will soon be in jail! That will be one of the best things to happen for peace in Palestine and the ME in general for a very long time
Judaism is a religion...Semites are a race or group of people speaking semetic languages which includes but is not limited to Palestinians and Jews of ME decent. I think the reason that the jewish lobby uses the anti-semetic scare campaign is they want to be classified as a race not a religion which then fits in with the narrative of being a bigot and racist to question the zionist ideology. It is interesting and telling that they don't use anti-jewish. Being for peace and justice should not be labeled as being anti anything except anti-death and suffering.
