 The reality is that there is a safe and effective measure that reduces the risk of anybody using it, so there is nothing wrong with promoting it or making it a requirement for some activities, if you want to be irrational about it then you would have to live with the consequences of that decision.

You say that as if it was established fact. It isn't, it is just your opinion. Many do not agree with you, we are entitled to disagree and do as we see fit.

You don't understand the potential long term risks to the many who will get the vaccine. Nobody can say that Covid is worse on average in the long term, nobody knows what happens in the long term. Or do you have a crystal ball?

We don't know the vaccines' long term effects.

And some experts have brought up some valid concerns, like Michael Yeadon and Geert Vanden Bossche.

Unvaccinated people are also guinea pigs, for comparison scientists are going to use the people that choose not to vaccinate even if they could, so any of the expected higher long time risks from the infection can be analyzed.

If they find vaccinated people disproportionately suffer from autoimmune disease or allergies down the road, we will never hear about it.

Many of these allergies were likely caused by previous vaccinations.

Please, please, please do your research regarding side effects before going ahead and having it. Do not believe MSM.

I agree completely.

And don't beleive posters, there are too many baseless claims on this forum by people pretending to be experts. If your health is important to you, find reliable sources of information.

Posted in: Since the central government lost a number of lawsuits related to side effects of vaccines in the past, both the country and pharmaceutical companies became negative toward developing vaccines, which has weakened the foundation for such efforts. See in context

Nobody knows how safe these vaccines are long term.

And as some have already mentioned on this forum, they hat not yet received FDA approval, other than for emergency use.

Alex, those corona viruses are not highly (or at all) infectious to humans.

When they say it was created in a lab, they mean that they took a natural corona virus and turned it into one that can easily infect humans. It is no secret that the Wuhan lab was doing that kind of work.

That is false, Campbell gives no such comment nor there is any evidence that say this happened in the city of Wuhan at all,

Sorry, but that is what Campbell says. I don't know if he is correct or if its in the report, but he does say it.

Where does your evidence that it did not start in Wuhan come from?

This sort of thing is not new, in fact it's being happening for years. Government officials in Japan seem to break the rules they preach, then think that "Oh, we regret it" will suffice.

This is not limited to Japan, in the US Newsom, Whitmer, and Fauci were caught doing pretty much the same thing.

one in three patients hospitalised with COVID-19 suffers long-term health, mainly fatigue and shortness of breath.

In a cohort of 402 survivors in Italy one month after they were hospitalised, 56 percent tested positive for at least one psychiatric condition such as PTSD, depression or anxiety.

Quarantining and constant media fear porn will do that to people.

Peanuts also do this.

Did you ever wonder why there are so many allergies these days?

, (and for autism the evidence is that no vaccine in use for humans has anything to do with it)

I often read that the vaccine-autism link has been debunked, but that "debunking" evidence is very weak, actually none existent.

"Prioritising vaccination is based on risk factors for having a severe outcome, and so when the evidence shows that people with severe mental illness are at high risk they should be among the prioritised groups"

That Lancet paper is very encouraging. In their concluding remarks, they mention: " Getting people with severe mental illness vaccinated is not expected to pose any problems as they overwhelmingly view vaccines favourably."

And as usual it is extremely dishonest to present only half of the information and pretend non vaccinated people do not have the same problems at approximately the same rates,

Same rates?

I do

I don't think so.

It is very telling that every time one of your arguments is proven false

You are always saying things are false, but you have yet to prove anything.

"We have a very sick and corrupt electoral process that has to be fixed immediately. This election was rigged," Trump said. "And the Supreme Court and other courts didn't want to do anything about it."

I agree with Trump.

Any evidence that what you’re agreeing with is accurate or true in the slightest?

Yes, lots, but providing it here would be considered "offensive/vulgar".

Posted in: COVID-19 infections in Tokyo may have jumped nine-fold, antibody survey shows See in context

All those infected during the first wave would test negative for antibodies.

Citation needed, there is no report where people lose completely the antibodies against the disease in such a short time.

A little while ago JT reported on a study saying that antibodies decreased rapidly but were still barely detectable up to 6 months after infection. Before that, there were countless reports trying to scare us telling us that antibodies were very short lived, a couple of months.

You are likely confusing the above antibody test with the more complicated T cell test.

Antibodies are short lived, but the memory T cells can last a life time, allowing you to mount a rapid immune response years after infection.

Posted in: COVID-19 infections in Tokyo may have jumped nine-fold, antibody survey shows See in context

No no no, from the official intercensal estimate the population of the Tokyo prefecture is 13.506 million people (with 9.214 million living within Tokyo's 23 wards) not 37 million. With a 0.91% rate, that’s around 122,900 people having antibodies. The current number of people tested positive to the covid is 102,845, so the difference is way smaller to what you claim it is.

That being said, the 0.91% rate comes from a survey that covered only 3,399 people in Tokyo which is still too low in my opinion.

For months people have been complaining about the lack of testing, but this result suggests they did the PCR well and caught all the positives. Hard to believe, maybe they will get a more realistic result if they increase the survey coverage.

Did those who tested positive for antibodies also have positive PCR in the past few months?

All those infected during the first wave would test negative for antibodies.
