Nice image standing in the car. Is it common in Japan to do this?

If the people on this photo think abt not traveling for year then there will be no new cases

61 people out 600 on flights from SA to the Netherlands tested positive on arrival:

Did they pick this up on the flight, or they got on the flight sick? Both scenarios are quite scary.

Again, if you are testing travellers that need to be vaccinated to enter the country,

I'd say most countries don't require travelers to be vaccinated (yet), with the exception of Singapore VTL., only to pass a negative tests.

But you do have a point in that it's likely most people who would travel would very likely be vaccinated by choice.

Any source for this? because that has not been included in the information released anywhere,

Actually, both patients in HK were fully vaccinated. You can find it on SCMP.

In my last performance review, I blamed for me not doing anything on "supply issues" also. They actually believed it.

All you foreigners in Japan salivating at the prospect of things going hot over Taiwan would do well to remember that.

Nothing is going hot over Taiwan. China would take Taiwan without a shot fired, guaranteed.

All in all, let's never hope for a war of any sort please.

There won't be a war. China would just walk in and Taiwan will surrender without a shot fired. The US and Japan will do nothing.

My guess is this is a fake closure. You don't announce these things 3 months ahead of time if they really going to close. I think this is a marketing ploy and they will remain open.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 9 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 86 See in context

How do 9 people get infected when the Delta variant is extremely infectious? Are all 9 related, or were all 9 detected at the airport? Otherwise this doesn't make any sense scientifically.

I’d rather watch Blade too. Good move TBS.

TBS didn't show Blade, so what good move?

Why is everybody talking about TBS. TBS and TV Tokyo is not the same thing. TBS showed news conference, TV Tokyo showed Blade...

Most Japanese politicians should do this. After all, not much difference between giving out a piece of paper with the answers to the pre-screened questions vs reading them off from the teleprompter.

Truly a miracle. I don't understand how come it's not 0 at this point, since obviously not only the virus died out in the population of Japan, but also from those who are entering the country.

Can this be somehow related to the upcoming elections and the low approval rating of the party?

 One factor that is hard to measure is the behavior of local people during the Olympics when they see tens of thousands of foreigners let into the country and not monitored for six weeks leading to the conclusion that the Tokyo and national governments were not following science, so why should individuals in Japan follow science either. The Olympics gave non-compliers an huge excuse to not care about safety protocols.

That's nonsense. I live in a very central area of Tokyo, and there has been 0 observable change in the behavior people prior the Olympics, during, or now.

Also, the Olympics was a non-event, there were barely any more foreigners around. I very much doubt that the Olympics was a super-spreader event.

It can't be the vaccination rate alone.

Singapore is 80+% vaccinated, but still battling a much higher case count with much more restrictions than here. Also people there wearing masks since they are fined if they don't.

I go with some government manipulation of the data in time for the elections.

As others have noted, having an individual using a toilet or onsen having the opposite body parts as other users, may be acceptable in The West

Toilet yet. Onsen? Which "The West" are you talking about? There are no onsen essentially anywhere outside of Japan where people go naked.

Many women wouldn’t like it if a “woman” with a penis came into the ladies’ bathroom.

At least in a bathroom you have a door on each stall.

Wait until these "ladies" demand to use the lady's side at onsens. An uniquely Japanese problem which is much worse than bathrooms.

Surprisingly, no collage-dropout Nepotism-kun in the new cabinet. Wonder what his next steps are.

Also, no fresh-faced Kono. Didn't he get some kind of PR role? I guess not a minister.

Easy! Over 70% of the population has had at least 1 jab, and over 60% has had 2. Ever hear of herd immunity?

Except that's a lot lower percentage than essentially all developed countries which cannot contain the Delta variant.
