The proliferation of the human species which destroys wild flora and fauna while depleting resources will inevitably cause its loss. Human beings will never change their way of life. Too bad.

@Bob Fosse

Vaccination, testing everyone who has symptoms of cold of flu, testing every contacts of an infection, isolating/quarantine infected to break chain of infections, keep usual prevention measures (mask, gel...), vaccine passport in place crowded like events... and NO lockdown, This is how it works fine in some western European countries where the covid is managed with a working medical system for all people.

And I am not supporting the government of Singapore.

Finally some common sense.

Exactly ! Singapore has chosen a wise way to deal with this virus. Some countries in Western Europe too.

@IngvarToday  03:35 pm JST

What is the % since the vaccines started being administered? 35% of deaths in fully vaccinated people since the January or February last year doesn't paint a flattering picture for the vaccines Singapore is using.

too.

Right, it’s time to open up and get things back to normal. The vulnerable have been vaccinated and most of those that want it. By now a large amount of the population will have caught Covid too.

Would be nice if there was a study of prevalence of anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.

The Covid situation has never been dire in Japan. Some hospitals were affected greatly but not the majority as some would like you to believe. "Most" residents here practice self preservation and avoid getting into situations where transmission easily occurs. Plus, mask wearing indoors is nearly 100% and has been for over a year. With the number of vaccinated (especially the elderly) at very high levels, it is no wonder the situation is getting better daily.

Oh wonderful Japan where Covid is just annoying but not serious and medical system is working fine with all patients hospitalized as needed. That's your view.

There is no need to test asymptomatic people. Most Japanese don't want to get a test if they are feeling fine. Plus the expense would be enormous. Japan tests those who are symptomatic and we get the daily numbers from that data. It is consistent so it is an excellent gauge to see trends.

You still do not understand the meaning of non restricted testing, you are really st......

Japan is doing very well and it is a great country to live in during the pandemic.

Yes, no problem at all here, no people has lost jobs, economy is flourishing, restaurants are open all day, no quarantine when going back to Japan when you are fully vaccinated and showing 3 negative tests.

Still some way to go with the vaccine program, but I have no doubt that the 153m vaccines doses administered to date have made a big difference, with two thirds of the population having had at least one dose, and close to 70m people being fully vaccinated.

https://vdata.nikkei.com/newsgraphics/coronavirus-japan-vaccine-status/

Impressive to see now that 90% of over 65s have had at least one dose, and 88.6% are fully vaccinated.

Well done Japan!

What will be the maximum rate of fully vaccinated people in Japan ? 60, 70, 80 % ???

BurakuminDes Today  05:17 pm JST

Laughable.

I agree with you.

Japan ranks around the middle of Asian nations in terms of Covid death rate per capita. There is ZERO evidence to suggest they resist the virus "better than anywhere on earth".

Exactly.

Note that most of the people here compare Japan only with western countries to show how Japan is better handling the virus.

Posted in: New Zealand’s largest city to remain locked down See in context

Even at the peak of the last wave, Japan has a infection rate low compared to western countries where most restrictions are down. But here in Japan, with this low rate :

no way to drink alcohol in restaurants

no way to eat after 8pm in restaurants

14 day quarantine when coming back from overseas even with fully vaccination and 2 negative PCR tests (one before boarding, one after arriving)

And speaking of democracy, I do not think it's a word valid here seeing how political world is.

OssanAmerica Today  07:19 am JST

Both the Australians and the US are Pacific powers and their concerns are right in their faces. Unlike France.

Are you aware that France is present in all oceans ? There are French territories in Pacific Ocean (French Polynesia, New Caledonia, Wallis and Futuna), Indian Ocean (Reunion Island, Mayotte), Atlantic Ocean (Guadeloupe, Martinique, French Guyana, Saint Barthelemy, Saint Martin) and even in North America (Saint Pierre and Miquelon). So France is a power in the Indian-Pacific and has interest too.

For many many days, the number of infections in Tokyo is down by 60% compared to the day of the previous week, amazing Tokyo.

Let's celebrate the end of the Covid19 disease in Japan, a very unique country on planet Earth.

On October 1st, let's drink alcohol and eat after 8pm.

LDP will have a new minister.

Japanese are going to be vaccinated for end of October/beginning of November.

What a wonderful future we can see.

Let's enjoy life. Freedom is back !

rainyday Today  06:02 pm JST

Its not about random testing, its about making testing available for people who want or need it. The testing system they have now is clearly designed to make it as difficult as possible to get tested as a deliberate way of limiting the number of tests done. Its outrageous.

Also, its not just the sick who need testing, people who may have been exposed and want to know if they are infected should have access too.

Exactly. And people who does not (want to) understand that and simply hopeless.

@Zoroto

I agree, with so low testing, Japan does not know the real situation. Even with the medical system being out of limit, they do not care at all for real prevention. Nothing is set up to deal with the next wave, poor country leadership.
