Numbers will continue to climb until the vaccine is rolled out and as that is being done so slowly then better get used to these high numbers.

Until they start firing them they will continue to think they can get away with anything and we all know what will happen, they will bow and apologize and maybe take a salary cut for a month,

Posted in: Japan considers COVID-19 vaccination certificates for those traveling overseas See in context

Japan has lagged behind other countries such as the United States and Britain in its vaccine rollout amid a supply shortage due to production delays at Pfizer's factory and the European Union's export controls.

This is not the only reason Japan has lagged and so easy to blame the Europeans.

Posted in: COVID-19 inoculations in Japan off to snail pace start due to vaccine, syringe shortages See in context

Japan has always had barriers up to stop overseas drug companies from competing here and now this system is biting Japan in the arse as their hands are tied. Time for a change or at least be flexible during these difficult times.

Posted in: Go To Travel campaign may partially resume after state of emergency lifted See in context

Isn't it better to start this after the majority of people have been vaccinated, but as this wont happen until much later in the year the big companies like Dentsu and JTB must be pressuring the government to restart GOTO travel early. Not smart at all.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 178 coronavirus cases; below 200 for 1st time since Nov 24 See in context

How can there be only 5200 tests done on a Friday, a normal workday?

Because to get tested you need to have certain symptons so less tests mean less people with symptoms.

Don't you people get tired of repeating the same things everyday.

Posted in: AstraZeneca files for Japan approval of COVID-19 vaccine See in context

Too slow to approve it and they should have started vaccinating already. Also they always talk about the numbers of vaccines they have agreed to buy but not when they will get them.

At least we are starting to learn the truth from Kono that they have no idea when they will start to roll out the vaccine. Shame on the Japanese government for being so slow as this will cost the economy dearly !! Time for a change of government I think.

Many complain that people cant get tested but I got my test last week in Shinjuku for only 2900 yen and got the results the next day. It was quick and easy and very busy and I dont think these private clinics get added to the official test numbers. Company is call EPARK and they also have a clinic is Shinbashi.

One law for the elite and another for the rest of us. They throw you in jail here for almost anything and hold you for 28 days but these guys already got preferential treatment and will only get a suspended sentence.

I hope Japan is stockpiling its vaccine orders ready for a mass vaccination when they are finally approved. That would be the smart thing to do but unfortunately Japan is lacking strong leadership.
