Protect the vulnerable and at-risk - and stop killing the futures of the average person.

Would you like to enlighten me on how to protect the vulnerables?

I drive everyday and understand the inconvenience of having a complete flat tyre. This repeat offender needs to be taught a lesson!

Posted in: Premier of Australia's Victoria defends hard COVID-19 lockdown See in context

Promising two weeks of free rent and hardship payments to the residents, Andrews said public health workers would test every resident of the buildings, except those who have previously tested positive.

Below is from another article:

Mr Andrews said there would be no rent for two weeks for the residents in the nine towers locked down on Saturday. Residents who are employed would receive a $1500 hardship payment and those not employed a $750 hardship payment.

Also, on TV the authority is helping the residents to buy groceries and supplies. $1,500 for staying 5 days at home, 2 weeks of free rent and people buying groceries for you. I am sorry but it sounds pretty good to me. By the way I work my ass off everyday and do not get paid this much.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 124 COVID-19 cases Friday; 70% in their 20s and 30s See in context

I have said it before and I am saying it again. You have to be super naive to believe in a super city like Tokyo Covid-19 does not exist. Japanese should be glad that these carriers are found. Test, trace and isolate. There is no need to panic and go back to implementing restrictions. If people do the right things this virus can be suppressed. Then we keep our fingers crossed for a vaccine.

Campaign poster #21: Masayuki Hiratsuka -"Corona is just a cold"

This guy is a Trumpian level loser and very dangerous if he's spreading those lies.

Nah. They runs out of space for the next sentence which is 'But if you are old or infirm then you are likely to die if you catch it.'

More news to come soon regarding adern and the nanny state hahaha, literally ask the nanny.

Well. That nanny has kept millions of people safe from the wrath of covid-19. I think many people are thinking she has done a pretty good job. By the way, I am no fan of her. In my own opinions she is just another politician. All politicians are hypocrites, it is just some are worst than the others.

I’m saying it’s not the end of the world that the media makes it out to be.

Ah, please tell me which media is making this pandemic like the end of the world. Maybe it is just you are feeling that the media is making it like the end of the world.

Typical media feeding off people’s fear

Yeah, blame the media for people's inability to think for themselves.

If I were living in Tokyo, I would be glad that these covid-19 carriers are found. You have to be super naive to believe that in a super city like Tokyo this virus does not exist.

Victoria needs to go back to full lock down immediately. Drawing it out or hesitating more will lead to a situation like US states where it is never going to get control back.

Full Lock down ASAP!

It is happening in the city of Melbourne. Do we really need to lock down the whole state of Victoria?

Yawn... this is still news?

Well. If you are living in the USA or Brazil this is of course normal. But it is happening in Australia so yeah, it is still ongoing news.

And everybody also understands now that the Lockdowns doesn't help anything against the Virus.

During Lockdowns cases are low! After lifting Lockdowns and life went back to normal, cases rise!

That is also absolutely normal.

Seriously, mate. You are absolutely wrong. Lockdowns stops the spread of the virus if it is done properly. It makes a big difference against the virus. I live in south of Brisbane, Queensland. I really do not want to brag about it but unlike many other countries people here do not need to wear masks. The reason? Covid-19 was here but lockdown was implemented early it stopped any community transmission. Now things here are gradually going back to normal.

However, I am well aware that the virus is still out there. Therefore, I have good hygiene practice. In case things goes bad I have plenty of sanitiser and even face masks. What is happening in Melbourne needs to be dealt with swiftly. You cannot leave this virus unchecked.

Of course, lockdowns suck. Aussies knew it . However, we are safe from the wrath of covid-19. Things are gradually getting back to normal. This recession is inadvertable. Many countries are far worse than us.

Posted in: JR Central to delay planned start in 2027 of maglev train service See in context

Linear Chuo Shinkansen, which will have a top speed of 500 kilometers per hour.

With the 9 trillion yen ($84 billion) project, the new system will connect the two major metropolises located 286 kilometers apart in 40 minutes, less than half the travel time for existing shinkansen train services.

The maglev train project is viewed as a second high-speed link for the country's three key metropolises -- Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka -- as a backup for when the existing shinkansen line becomes obsolete or is damaged by a major earthquake

There are things that needs some answers:

What is the risk of having trains travelling at 500km per hour?

You spend 9 trillion yen in order to cut a little over 40 minutes of travel time.

The existing shinkansen line is becoming obsolete?

Is the new train line earthquake proof?

Posted in: 'The Simpsons' ends white actors voicing characters of color See in context

White people should be able to voice black characters and vice versa. It is absurd in many ways and apparently over-sensitive.

However, we probably do see far fewer actors from ethnic backgrounds in the industry and at least ensuring that ethnic characters are voiced by those of the same ethnicity should help address this to done extent.

Ah_so. Finally some sensible comment. The voice actors have made their own decisions. Why do people get so worked up about it?

Posted in: Australia starts virus testing blitz to stop second wave in Melbourne See in context

Another economy and mental health destroying overreaction due to irresponsible, sensationalist media fuelled hype to a sickness no worse than the regular flu in the very vast majority of cases.

183 active cases in a state with a population of 6.7 million residents. Your chance of bumping into a live case? 1 in 37000.

I just cannot believe there is still people comparing covid-19 to the flu. It is this kind of ignorance that health systems in many countries are in trouble This virus is not as deadly as Ebola or SARS but it is very contagious so if it is left unchecked millions of people will be infected. Yes, the majority will recover themselves but the small percentage of millions of patients who needs hospital treatment is big enough to overwhelm hospitals. Also elderlies and people with underlining illness have higher chances of deaths.

495,414 people have already died from it where countries all over world are working hard to contain it. Imagine what the death figure would have been if it is left unchecked. The Victorian government is trying to put out a fire before it spreads out of control.

NIck Bart Balzano

Yes. I agree with you. Australia is a big country with little people so low population density has a given us an edge against covud-19. My comment is just a sarcastic return fire against someone thinking we are stupid.

Yeah, reeks of stupidity and global hysteria.

Yeah. We Aussie are stupid and hysterical. But that stupidity and hysteria have kept us safe from the wrath of Covid-19. So that is not really a bad thing.

By the way about a month ago there was a cluster outbreak at an hospital in Tasmania, military was sent into that area to set up field hospital to help contain the outbreak. Army medics are trained to handle bio hazard conditions. Australia is just using more resources to contain convid-19.

One person dies “of the corona virus”, with underlying conditions.

And they get the military in? Something reeks here

I just love how people thinks. The following is from ABC Australia.

The ABC understands the Victorian Government has requested 300 ADF personnel, mainly medicos, for logistical support like helping with hotel quarantine and working in hotspot areas.

Not all military are for combats, there are medics.

3 times I stayed in a 4-5 star hotel in my prefecture. Usually ¥25000 with breakfast and onsen. Paid ¥11000 2pax. Brilliant!

A few years ago my wife and I went to stay overnight at an onsen hotel in Hokodate. The onsen was awesome. The buffet dinner and breakfast were beautiful. Hopefully when international travel between Japan and Australia is back to normal there is some good deals around.

There was a similar case here in Queensland a while ago but the authority stood firm.

AN AMERICAN resident has been reunited with his dying mother after two weeks in mandatory quarantine but has slammed Queensland’s Chief Health Officer for her “disappointing” handling of the situation. 

San Diego resident Mark Talbot made his way on Monday to Hervey Bay to see his terminally ill 83-year-old mother after two weeks in mandatory quarantine at The Westin in Brisbane, despite multiple applications to have his hotel isolation exempted by Chief Health Officer (CHO) Dr Jeannette Young on compassionate grounds and moved to a home residence.

This is actually very good news! The result shows that Japan, against all odds, has managed to contain the spread of covid-19. With the ease of restrictions there will be new cases but as long as they are contained it will be fine.

Posted in: Expert urges Japan to keep virus guard up as most people lack antibodies See in context

But as it remains unclear whether antibodies for the novel coronavirus provide immunity to reinfection, the government is planning to continue analysis of the antibodies at the National Institute of Infectious Diseases.

First it is still not clear if antibodies provide immunity to the virus. Even it does we do not know long the immunity will last. Then even the immunity is long, are we going to let the virus spread unchecked for nerd immunity and let hospitals be overwhelmed by sick people (not all people has the virus recovers by themselves). The only safe way to achieve nerd immunity is by vaccination.

So after six months 99.9% of Tokyoites havent been infected and 99.98% haven't died

At this pace, Its going to take a lot of waves to justify the cost and inconvenience of the past few months

That is because the inconvenience of the past few months stopped the spread of the virus. If nothing was done the situaton would have been very different. You are saying like you saw a car speeding towards you so you jumped sideways. Then you said since I was not injured so I should not have jumped.

Did they ever heard of Corona Virus? Social Distance

Monty, to be fair you keep saying we cannot lock down forever, we need to live with the corona virus, downplaying the threat of the virus in Japan. So you are kinda contradicting your views now. Do not get me wrong, I do not support the protesters in Australia for endangering public health safety.
