Iya Iya Iya. You guys just started to demand for an apology again.
Watch out for massive Japan bashing in next few months. The media wants to see how much they can bully suga around.

This is exactly the reason big tech promotes coronavirus and censors doctors.

Rt hit the nail on the head. Well written.
It seems to me kyodo is promoting this gender inequality right now. Just another topic to get Japanese people fighting with eachother. It's not working though because of exactly what RT said. And Japanese people are not dumb. It's really activist journalism. Not really news. A few days ago they released an article in the politics section.

Great news. I think the Japanese government knows now that this covid-19 is not as dangerous as was first predicted. But they have to left all the precautions slowly otherwise the fear and loathing maskies will have a temper tantrum.

You don't need to make a new agency. Just tell your bureaucrats to make the move to digital from paper. They can figure it out.

The media hyped it up as they do with everything. It was a little windy and rainy. The powered went out for a short bit of time when we were asleep. I had to factory reset my tv.
We really got to stop living our lives to the beat of the media. They are only looking to sensationalize everything for ratings. I blame the economy and all the problems we had in 2020 on the media. They are not looking in peoples be interest

Just because it's free doesn't mean you should put it in your body.
Dont let the bullies force you to take this like they force you to wear a mask.

Watcbing sports is an escape from the political world. The NBA and other leagues getting political has really hurt their ratings. People don't want to think about BLM when they are trying to be entertained. CNN is for that.

Seems people have changed their mood towards this virus thing. Its a good sign. I hope more and more push for freedom of businesses as more data come out. I think the media is also starting to see coronafear isn't selling as well anymore.

Youtube is a pretty boring site now a days. It's just full of reviews and how to videos. That's good but I'm already starting to go to other video sites that allow more content. I didn't start using YouTube when it first came out because I wanted to be baby sat.

Idiots wearing mask in heatwave. It's sad that Soo many people hang on every word the media says. Maybe it was their responsibility to warn people that wearing a mask outside in the heat is dangerous. But I guess corona sells better.
I guess they are just giving people what they think they want.

This article reports the age group of infected but not the age groups of death. What's the deal with that?

criticized for his handling of the coronavirus outbreak and some scandals
Such bias media. Not objective and vague. I think hes doing a fine job. Would criticize him for the sales tax increase.

We all know Taiwan and China hate eachother with a passion. Maybe it's not racism but there is some extreme antipathy between the two.
By the way, does anyone know if Taiwan still doesn't receive flights from China?

Its not the Chinese people's fault. I think i@n is right. It's basically racism that stopping Chinese tourism. But the sad part is Japan is shooting itself in the foot.
I find it very strange that people still claim it is in the name of safety when we already have seen the virus is not as bad as the media made it out to be. The death rate is extremely low and only the 70 and above population needs to take care of their health. As you get older your body becomes weaker. It's just a fact of life.
Open up the economy so people can start their lives back up!

Being that the pandemic didn't turn out to be the horror show the "experts" predicted it to be, I agree with James. Japan needs business. People will lose their business and get payed off which results in suicide and more welfare which the government cannot afford.
Welcome back tourism to Japan!

Again incomplete info skews reality. Anyone can look up thee numbers for themselves. More people die from tb than corona. This is so ridiculous now and I predict the media in Japan will stop reporting on this. It just isn't selling and people are sick of the mask propaganda and fake fear.

I wonder how much tax payer money all these media organizations get from Tokyo when they report on this.

Im juat here for the editors notes.

Fiddlers, I agree. People thought they wear doing the right thing but not going to restaurants and participating in the economy will result in more suicide.
Really, the media is to blame for all this, but it's their business model to keep people in fear. I guess fear and controversy sells.
-7 ( +5 / -12 )
It would be better therefore if there was a 'review' website on how well restaurant are doing to prevent infections,"
that is just rude. Getting the public in on the scam. But I have faith in the Japanese people. They are sick of hearing about positive with no context in the media everyday.

At this point it's ridiculous to wear a mask. In the article it even admits that they have mild to no symptoms. Covid-19 is basically the common cold at this point. No young people have died and the majority is over 80.
This is the biggest larp I ever seen.

Im starting to think that the average life span in Japan is shorter.
1 ( +1 / -0 )
40 deaths is not much for one month. And a majority of those deaths are over 80. Im willing to bet there was more deaths from heart disease in August than corona.
