That’s all nice and all...

So what exactly is Takeda going to be doing? Asking a billion dollars to put a Japanese label and a cartoon on the vial?

This is a serious thing as many people will die every day that the vaccine is idled on.

And did “distributing by February” just become “sometime this year”?

Posted in: No. of hospitalized coronavirus patients at record high in Japan See in context

Next step: Government begins making private hospitals (which make up most in Japan) to accept Covid patients.

I feel like the main problem here is that since the industry is privatized, the hospitals dont want to treat Corona. It doesnt make money and has a bad rep.

Posted in: In Tokyo, some drink on despite gov't request for bars to close at 8 p.m. See in context

It isn’t a necessity to go drinking. You can buy stuff from a supermarket etc and then go home and eat it.

But theres also people there and your item has been touched by many people before you.

If your having a drink with someone you would be seeing anyways to talk to, you’re now doing it without a mask, sometimes in close quarters.

It’s also easy to see why someone who has a 1% chance of being hospitalized by covid tries to still live their lives.

Everyone has their own priorities and risk management style so at least its not that you get arrested or anything like that.

Sport events, Schools, Temple Holidays and everyday train and bus rush hour is on! Supermarkets and Shotengais are packed. Theres no government action to support people actually staggering hours or commutes.

Posted in: Japan's 2nd state of emergency met with public indifference See in context

What an insulting article!

I am a citizen so don’t tell me that I and others are “ignoring” things or that people are indifferent.

People must work or they will fail to provide for their families and themselves.

Of course the trains have people in the morning Mayor Koike. The city woke up and went to work to keep it running.

At this point the media should be writing stories about what the policy makers have been doing all day and how they are planning for the worst (which is yet to come).

”Trains be crowded...” my god!

Posted in: Gov't to expand state of emergency to cover Osaka, Kyoto, Hyogo See in context

I still have no idea what this State of Emergency would actually do here in Osaka.

Eateries and bars will close earlier than they already do? The government can urge people to go home earlier?

This is no different to the current situation!

Posted in: Police ask public not to use 110 number for non-urgent calls See in context

Kinda silly to hear comments about collapse of morals and society.

125 million people can call one number for emergencies. The fact that there thousands of needless ones is something that will always happen.

Hey if its night and the countryside and Im stuck out middle of nowhere and can’t get out, why can’t I call a cop? If its winter its deadly.

I am in need of assistance, he or she is a public officer assigned to help those who call them.

Posted in: Osaka, Kyoto, Hyogo prefectures to request state of emergency See in context

Nice SOE.

So being an Osaka guy myself, besides closing resteraunts and bars isn’t there other larger places where people congregate?

Schools are nicely packed with children with zero distancing in little classrooms with 30-40 students per room.

Trains are packed with people going to am meetings about the corona virus.

If you bother to do something, why not do it right?

Prediction: 2021

Covid still rages around the world vaccines do something but not enough.

The Olympics are finally canceled with several financial scandals.

Suga leaves office.

Posted in: Do you think those people calling for a lockdown in Japan have secure jobs and income? See in context

If your income depends on it, you would be far less likely to be asking for it.

If you would get paid or compensated by the government, its more acceptable.

Posted in: Gov't to ask experts whether to declare state of emergency again See in context

This is Suga’s way to get the responsibility on everyone and not just him. Classic LDP move, oh and expect a state of some kinda emergency soon.

Not true sir,

Koike and other politicians have changed costumes and held up signs with cartoons and keywords on them.

The most that can be done is being done!

Posted in: Another state of emergency would impact Tokyo Olympics See in context

Blaming Japans politicians is not 100% fair too though.

The IOC and ALL the Olympic Comittee Internationally have never cast one doubt on it. Its definitely about holding out till a certain time for cash purposes.

Those aligned politically with the IOC’s stance have clashed locally with those who wanted Japan to be more proactive about the virus.

But all along for sure money and power were placed over human lives.

Posted in: Another state of emergency would impact Tokyo Olympics See in context

Its whack a mole time!

I dont think Japan has the capability to test people very efficiently, so I think another lockdown is needed to save lives.

However businesses will need to be compensated again, and thats probably the real reason too ALONG with the Olympics.

Giving every small business 1,000,0000 is extremely expensive.

Posted in: When you first heard about the coronavirus, did you think it would escalate into a global crisis that would still be with us as the new year begins? See in context

I wouldn’t be surprised if we are in some kinda quasi-mode next New Years.

It takes a long time to give billions of people shots. It takes twice as long to give them two.

In this case it may be true what ur saying. But other people wouldnt get away with it. Or would they? I heard theres supposedly a hard line on alcohol and accidents

He probably was able to pay a lot to the other person.

He was allowed to do a lot of bowing instead of being hustled through the court system.

I don’t think you have to pay the 35% discounted price on arrival. The deals that have already been done are done.

Posted in: Japan to expand compensation for businesses over Go To Travel campaign halt See in context

Actually the reality is that most resorts and nice facilities, onsens, hotels in scenic spots, and even rental homes are all already sold out.

Most people will not cancel what they already booked and will go anyway.

So the notion that stopping it now is ending the travel is at best, optimistic.
