Posted in: Japan may see resurgence of coronavirus cases, experts warn See in context

I’ve never once seen an article interviewing someone who has it explaining how they’re making their symptoms better and keeping their chin up.

Exactly, long articles from "long haulers" without any stats as to the real level of incidence of this (inevitably some will be true, some hypochondria), all designed to strike fear into people and hasten the demise of civil liberties.

Posted in: 86-year-old man admits killing 16-year-old granddaughter but says he was drunk See in context

I can't find the part where he is actually using his drunkenness as a defence. He seems to be saying it contributes to his lack of clarity, not that it justifies the crime. This appears to be reader projection. Not helped by the opening lines and the use of "but" where "and" would have done.

No. Everyone should carry on regardless until the last person is standing.

Posted in: Man arrested for attempted rape of teenage girl suspect in similar crimes See in context

A lot of Japanese men can’t seem to “control their sexual desire[s].”

Is it because they are raised by overbearing mothers?

Is it because their fathers are rarely home?

Is it because of the rape manga/anime?

Is it because of the hyper sexualization of females from a young age?

Is it because women are looked upon as merely objects here?

No.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 163 new coronavirus cases See in context

Telling us how many new 'cases' there are feels really misleading. It depends on the number of tests in the first place. If there were 0 tests there would be 0 new cases. Would that be worthy of an article? Of course not, yet incorporating the same bizarre logic here we are with yet another 'update'.

Pointless publishing it.

Exactly

The article is 3 paragraphs long. It tells you the number of tested. It also tells you that 23 people in a hundred and some million have serious symptoms as a result of having the virus. It is informative enough to tell me that the virus is meaningless compared to all the problems it has created.

So, let's wait and see what those who always deny everything have to say this time.

People, for the time being we have to live (hopefully) with this virus.

And that's quite some increase compared

with the previous numbers!

Less than 30 people seriously ill with it. Good news!

I know there's a lack of information on the news but I'm guessing the man was probably dogging the woman for something and the girl got fed up of it. We need more evidence

No we don't, it's attempted murder.

Posted in: Tokyo to extend request for bars to shorten hours until Sept 15 See in context

have three of the biggest hospitals in Osaka right on my doorstep, and all three of them REFUSE access to even suspected Covid-19 sufferers, let alone admit any.

Maybe it's because Corona cases are so rare compared to the multitude of other sicknesses people need treatment for. Why would you risk spreading Infection in such places when a small centre will do.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 250 new coronavirus cases; nationwide total 837 See in context

The reason people are not tested is because positives require hospitalisation by law, thus it makes perfect sense to only test those with persistent symptoms.

The government is thinking of downgrading the classification of the disease so this is no longer the case, which will allow for wider testing.

If only people would recognize this and accept that testing doesn't change anything.

Posted in: Japan reports 1,021 new cases of coronavirus on Sunday; 260 in Tokyo See in context

Why on earth are they still not making testing more widespread? Are they scared of publicizing the real situation?

Because unless you have serious symptoms, going to a test centre increases the likelihood you will most certainly become infected and / or infect others.

Because a positive result often causes hospitalization regardless of the severity of the symptoms. Beds are needed for serious cases.

Bearing in mind "contact tracing" is pretty much out of the window by now, these are good reasons to avoid mass testing, which would give the doom mongers numbers, but tell us little about the impact on health and lives.

Stay healthy, boost your immunity, so that when you do eventually get it, you'll get over it with no problem.

Stay healthy.

There's no such thing as "boosting" your Immunity. It's a myth. If your system is deficient then possibly ok, but otherwise any thing that boosted your Immunity would make your actual symptoms worse.

Posted in: Trump's coronavirus retweets spark claims of censorship See in context

The real issue here is that the mainstream media and establishment have decided to refuse a promising drug simply because Trump mentioned it. THAT is the scandal.

Identity politics again. Bolsonaro fully recovered, also used it, also scarcely reported in the MSM. Plenty of noise / thinly veiled gloating when he caught it though. And no I'm not a fan.

system and which has been proven to help protect against Covid19 is our vitamin D levels. The authorities should be telling us EVERY DAY to keep our vitamin D levels high through our diet and/or by going out in the sun (NOT STAYING HOME!!!).

Trouble is I'm beginning to wonder if the sun has gone into lockdown too.

Still a lot of comments banging on about more testing but to flush out the threat people would need to be tested on a daily basis symptoms or no symptoms. This is totally impractical and would disrupt people's lives more than they are already.

Posted in: Violators, beware: Police finally put some teeth in cycling laws See in context

Cyclists should be licensed not the vehicle, anyone riding a bicycle should be required to wear a hi-vis vest with their individual licence number front and back. Then they can ride legally any bike. Also should be insured. That way the minority who break the rules can be identified and prosecuted and not must ride off unidentified.

That'd be fun on a hot summer's day when popping to the conveni.
