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,

Suga said the government will expand testing and step up monitoring of new variants of the virus believed to be more contagious, while carrying out vaccinations safely and promptly.
Really, don't think anyone believes this.

if they had started to vaccinate earlier in Japan then this wouldn't be an issue.

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.

Time to vote out the LDP and put some smarter people in power as this news is embarassing for Japan.

If its against the law then time to finally prosecute someone and then maybe they would stop this corrupt practice.

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.

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.

At the very least they should be fired but we all know this wont happen.

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.

the Japanese government have failed its people and cost lives due to its slow rollout of a vaccine.

New Zealand should just do the same and take her passport away. If they don't want to then they need to be responsible for her.

The number of infected people hospitalized with severe symptoms in Tokyo is 92, down five from Monday
These are the important numbers.

They have no plan hence the silence as they were too slow to order the correct vaccine and now more people will die and businesses go bankrupt because of the Japanese governments incompetence.

Japan should have built on those islands a long time ago when China wasn't so powerful.
Big mistake by them.

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.

Great the JP government just found someone to blame for their failure to secure the vaccine !
17 ( +23 / -6 )
How about telling us the true number of the vaccines that Japan will be receiving and when and stop telling us stupid numbers that Japan has secured.

They had nearly a year to prepare for this and chose as usual to not do anything. Time to put some smarter and younger people in charge and retire the old guard.

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.

Them saying this means they know that the vaccines wont be ready for the Olympics so do us all a favor and cancel them now.

At least we know who to blame when they make a mess of rolling out the vaccine. Also this should have started already.

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.
