Britain, who started vaccinations early December, according to news reports are inoculating faster than other countries. The U.K. has managed to vaccinate just under 5 million people with the first shot. They are enlisting the help from a charity who are trained in very basic health support.
Based on these numbers it could take 130 weeks to provide their population with the treatment.
Excluding issues of vaccine supply chain, securing enough medically trained staff, vaccination centres, appropriate batch testing of the vials, and assuming Japan is able to be as efficient as Britain has been, it could take around 260 weeks for the residents of Japan to be vaccinated. Give or take a few weeks, that’s roughly, about, hmmmmm, 5 years. With around 30+ million over 65 yr old people in Japan, receiving their two doses, others could be waiting for more than 60 weeks; unless you get a ‘fast pass’.
I hope my figures are wrong and they don’t get logistical problems. Many of us could be waiting a long time to get vaccinated.

It’s taking the U.K. about 1 week to vaccinate 1 million people. At their current rate it could take around 60 weeks to cover the whole population. With Japans’ population at double that, and assuming they are as efficient as the British government; are we going to be looking at just over 2 years for the program to end! just a thought!

Easy solution is to postpone the campaign.

So, no ticket refunds? I think there are going to be many very unhappy people. Unbelievable.

When I go my instructions are to put me in a bag and leave my body in the burnable gomi area on a Wednesday or Monday.

For pity sake.

Ghosn has been accused of crime. The prosecutor‘s say they have evidence. So start the proceedings now; in his absence.

Other countries seem to manage without plastic bags plastic straws etc etc. As usual I doubt this rule has really been thought through properly.

I doubt they will have any issues with the food; that’ll be the positive. But, after reading an article about the rugby venues today, I would be more worried about the safety of all of the venues.
Oh and the weather. I guess it’s going to be okay because, by memory, didn’t they test the triathlon by shortening the test. At least one athlete had heatstroke (suspected).

Japan, what an embarrassment. Note; most countries are working toward equality. Change is the only way forward.
