I am sure that just the opposite occurred, constructions was diverted from Tohoku to Tokyo. Another example of the Gold Metal disaster the Tokyo Olympics were with the biggest damage to Japan of course being the superspreader aspect of the Olympic flop.

diesel exhaust contains even more serious carcinogens than vegetable smoke in greater concentration including Formaldehyde
Formaldehyde is given off when cigarettes are burned. Diesel engines are not run in restaurants or other indoor locations.
Some of the chemicals found in tobacco smoke include:
Nicotine (the addictive drug that produces the effects in the brain that people are looking for)
Radioactive elements, such as polonium-210 (see below)
The weak "see what cars are doing" retort by smokers does nothing to reduce second hand smoke deaths caused by the sadly addicted to nicotine crowd. It is a red herring logical fallacy.

Posted in: Employees will be allowed to smoke during lunch and other breaks. But they will be asked to take some time before getting back to work after smoking as the risk of causing passive smoking is believed to linger for about 45 minutes after smoking. See in context
Yes smokers you do stink. Sometimes on the trains the stench is horrible. And those around you are taking in the thousands of toxics that are in your clothes after you smoke. They do not magically disappear.
Disgusting anti-social habit that needs to be severely taxed to capture all the external costs created by toxic smoke. Also raising the price is the only way the addicted losers who still smoke will eventually quit. Getting cancer is not enough as is clear now to all.

No interest whatsoever, and that was true for the proceeding superspreader event as well. Zero interest.
So many of the apologists for the Paralympics said this would help Japan accept the disabled, even though that was not the case the last time it was held in Japan. Well, we can say that it failed to move the needle on this social cause once again. People choose not to watch at all.

"I hope you will acknowledge your responsibility and negligence, and sincerely apologize to the bereaved family,"
The judge asked Iizuka to do the right think and I am sure he still refused as he continues to believe he is not at fault for killing the victims. Sad but not surprising. So many needless deaths caused by letting incapacitated seniors drive in this country. And since Japan continues to age this will only get worse. Nothing impactful will change as old people vote for the LDP.

These numbers are just the athletes. The true number of the superspreader Olympic events is in the tens of thousands. August 9th the government will suddenly declare the infection rates are serious.

20 year disaster. Eventually OBL was found and killed but in another country. Total and complete waste brought to you by the twin war criminals Bush Jr and Cheney. $2.3 trillion wasted on nothing. Biden did the right thing to finally end the catastrophe this invasion turned out to be. Iraq was even worse, creating ISIS.
But all the normal suspects at the time cheered on this invasion and also the Iraq invasion based on lies. Maybe they will learn something for once. Maybe not. Being totally wrong again changes nothing.

Captain Obvious strikes again.
What does the country expect after the mismanagement of the last year and half. How can Koike say stay home and let 100,000 blue into the country for a sporting event/super spreader event?

Posted in: There's no change to the fact that there are many infections within households, but infections at day care centers and other such facilities are also occurring. Children under the age of 12 aren't getting vaccinated, so I'd like their parents to get vaccinated to prevent infections. Another thing is that there are many cases in which the actions of one adult result in an entire family becoming infected. See in context
Idiot fathers go out drinking and come back home with COVID is what the Prof is explaining

Getting COVID and dying from it are now is a voluntary decision.
This just shows that the politicalizing of the pandemic by Trump from day one resulted in the needless deaths of many, many Americans and that continues on to the present. People are dying from Covid now because they chose to get sick and die, because they believe that orange fraud who mislead them over the facts of the pandemic and what science has proven over and over again.

Of course the pandemic causes economic loss and the sooner it is addressed the faster the economy returns to normal. That its the adult way to looks at a pandemic. But we have the childish views spouted by the weak for one plus years now that says trying to stop the pandemic harms the economy.. If not for the vaccines the world would be in a depression now. Non-vaccinated people are 27 time more likely to end up in the hospital than the vaccinated. Data, fact, the truth. Some cannot handle it.

In California, unvaccinated people are more than six times as likely to contract the coronavirus than those who have their shots, according to state data released on Monday.
And in Los Angeles County, the state’s most populous, an unvaccinated person is as much as 25 times more likely to be hospitalized with the disease.
“That, in a sense, is our proof that vaccines work,” said Dr. Robert Kim-Farley, an infectious-disease expert at the University of California, Los Angeles’s Fielding School of Public Health.
A recent survey by the University of Southern California found that people who were unvaccinated were more likely than the vaccinated to go to a bar or a friend’s house and less likely to wear a mask or avoid large gatherings
In other words, people who choose not to get vaccinated are also probably less worried about Covid-19 and take fewer safety precautions, contributing to their risk of falling ill, said Kevin Malotte, a professor emeritus of epidemiology at Cal State Long Beach.
“Lack of mask measures, lack of worry about it, lack of vaccination are all kind of the syndrome, and I think that’s what we’re seeing correlate with the high rates,”
in other words stupid is as stupid does. it is like smokers who know they will get lung cancer. but smoke anyway. But with COVID the anti-vaxxers spread their disease to others like a typhoid Mary. Facts, the enemy of the deluded anti-vaxxer crowd.

"Tokyo is hosting the Paralympic Games for the second time, so this time round we need to bring change to society," Tokyo 2020 chief Seiko Hashimoto said Monday. "If we can achieve that, we can consider the Paralympics a success."
Well, get ready for a double failure Hashimoto. The event will make not a single bit of difference to the
disabled. Nothing, just like the first event.. And second some of the athletes, like the 500 in the first Gold Metal Disaster, will get sick and some may die. Without question this second sports event will make the pandemic worse in Japan and more Japanese will die because of it. We estimate about half the deaths in Japan are due to the government mismanagement of the pandemic in favor of the Olympic sponsors.
Like others I will not watch any of the events, to do so is to contribute to the debacle the Olympics have become this year thanks to the LDP and that fool Koike in Tokyo.

It is a fact that the Olympics was a super spreader event, scientist predicted exactly what would happen and it did occur. Delta was in the country before the Olympics, but lambda was not. That was brought in during the Olympics. Simply a Gold Metal Disaster for the country. And still the leadership is betting against the people and now young kids in favor of the virus.

I thought I was reading the Onion here, are they insane? The LDP and those involved in the Olympics are genuinely insane. The kids can watch on TV in their classrooms or at home, to have 140,000 of then gather in buses and auditoriums when infections are running out of control due to the previous superspreader Olympics? Insane.
Japan is unmanaged right now, the LDP is beyond incompetent. This has been true for decades but now it is obvious to even die hard LDP supporters. The LDP is trying to kill you and has been since Feb 2020 starting with the Diamond Princess disaster.

Those who are avoiding or delaying taking covid vaccines are, in my opinion, highly educated, rational, well-informed people who are well aware of the dangers and relative risks of the viral infection and the vaccination.
What risks from the vaccination are you talking about? The risks of getting sick from COVID are very clear. If you live in the USA it is 8-10%, Japan lower around 1% chance. Deaths after a COVID vaccination is 0.0019% and even then this does not mean the death was related to COVID. So I ask, how intelligent do you think anti-vaxxers are when faced with facts.

Welcome Japan to third world status, the pandemic response was once folly is now a full on disaster. Read a mother died giving birth to her child as she was denied access to a hospital and had to deliver at home. But Japan got 27 gold metals so her death is justified, right?
The LDP has exceeded its own basic ability to always screw things up to a new level of corrupt incompetence where thousands are going to die over the next six months plus.
Wow, 25,000 infections in one day. And yet the Paralympics continue to run and the government wants students, who are not vaccinated, to attend. The pandemic response in Japan is now clearly a crime against the residents of the country by the LDP. A Gold Metal disaster as predicted by the scientists who know about pandemics, the sceintists the LDP government is still not listening to at all.

The hysteria is far worse than the virus, considering it's like a dose of the flu with 99.7% of people fully recovering. Get on with life, we are not here for a long time.
When will these lies stop? Probably not until the deluded get sick themselves, but they again maybe even not then. Delusion is more powerful for some than the pandemic.

Suga said Japan never forgets the peace that the country enjoys today is built on the sacrifices of those who died in the war.
The Japanese lives lost were a total and complete waste. The war was unwinnable and many in Japan knew it but yet the Emperor prevailed along with his deluded military confidants. It was a tragedy ending in a nuclear hell. The peace that exists today is despite the insane war effort Japan initiated at Pearl Harbor and the millions who died for a lost cause.

The Gold Metal Disaster was a superspreader event. Tokyo will be over 5000 infections a day alone, the whole country was not close to that level prior to the superspreader Olympics. The whole affair was criminal as people are going to die so Japan could get metals in skateboarding and Dentsu could make money.
