Looking at the pictures... I hope the facility uses HEPA air purifiers.
Distancing is fairly useless against an airborne virus like this.
Germany did (genetically) trace infections to vaccination centres, so it is definitely a concern

Comparing the preventable treatable clot risks of airflight or other body position immobility to AZ autoimmune clotting+bleeding used to be meaningless, as the latter used to untreatable by traditional methods.
But l assume that all countries by now have a diagnosis and treatment guideline for the VIPIT, so the risk has dropped considerably, as long as the warning signs are observed long enough
-2 ( +0 / -2 )
This ban will mostly protect Japan, as the EU has massively worse infection and mortality numbers, and test positivity rates, aka under-testing

there is a small table outside my door on the 3 days I teach with an alcohol battery operated machine
A HEPA air purifier inside would offer much more benefit. So far only airborne infection has been proven, and superspreading events have been in closed stale airspace.
Infection by touch / via surfaces has not been confirmed
-11 ( +2 / -13 )
"reduce contacts among people"
Contact with each other's exhaled air/aerosols, more specifically.
So mostly indoors contacts.

asking bars and restaurants ... to close by 8 p.m.
It's an airborne virus, rules should be different for indoors and outdoors
1 ( +1 / -0 )
Compulsory high-capacity HEPA air purifiers sounds great for everyone's safety
-1 ( +0 / -1 )
precautions like washing our hands
For airborne viruses, handwashing only works if you remember to also wash the airways and lungs
4 ( +6 / -2 )
HEPA air purifiers and humidifiers are cheap and filter viral particles

there are two men in the picture: one without a mask over his nose and the other wearing it as a chin strap
I sometimes wear like that outside, and put mask on properly before getting indoors
