Posted in: Japan to vaccinate Olympic athletes: reports See in context

Isn't it around 1% of the general public yet vaccineted? And the majority of those are health workers. Will they have the audacity to vaccinate more sports people than civilians?! Incredible that vaccinces are stockpiled and day after day they they just rub more salt in the wound. Crass [redacted] -ers

Folly to doubt anything cannot have value. Pieces of paper with someones face and a number on it is as silly as anything else and whats more, its controlled by central entities and being created out of thin air all to the benefit of those who control it. Cryptocurrencies are created in a completely open and free way and its up to the people if it is of any value or not. People who bash it are the same - out of touch and stuck in the past.

Posted in: Japan's seriously ill COVID-19 patients hit new high of 1,144 See in context

Tens of 1000's of peope are battling this out in their homes right now. Some wards in Tokyo have a 'fast doctor' service and can have a doctor go to the person's home to administer oxygen if required (within 30 mins is promised) Hospitals have not been accepting most covid patients from the outset. For a supposidly 1st world country as far as medical practise goes, this is crazy to see how unwilling the government is to give the manpower and support needed to treat this pandemic seriously. What do they do instead? They fly some aerobatic planes over the city or fire off some fireworks as a symbolic something or other.

Live by the hanko, die by the hanko. With the belligerent instance that olympics goes ahead, the attention around this complete debacle will only intensify.

Posted in: Japan to expand, extend virus state of emergency See in context

It has been reported on the morning news about calls to Health Centers in Tokyo from people with high fever, which have been running 2 - 3x the reported positve test cases since pandamic began. It was at 2,700 yesterday. Remember, those are symptomatic cases and likely going about daily life during this 'emergency' , asymptomtic cases would be orders of magnitude larger.

Without doubt, there is complete incompetance at every level and for the entire duration of the pandamic here. You know, it doesn't matter who is holding that silly sign, nothing would be different. The circus that brought us - the handling of the Diamond Princess, the 'great Osaka model' , the abe masks, the 'go-to spread it more' campaigns, the pathetic testing regieme, the 'powerful and very strict' soe's while the trains are jam packed everyday and the oyagis hold parties in Ginza clubs, the no vaccination plan, and coming up ... the Olympics. It will take a hell of a lot of ganbatte kudasai to make this situation better.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 1,050 new coronavirus cases; record-high 1,262 in Osaka See in context

It could well have been but last 3 day avg would be at 7715. Unless the article is corrected or clarified, this looks like postive rate of 35% from the Tursday-only results.

Incorrect information - Only 2,943 were tested on 29th, not 7,903 (according to the data found in the link in the article and makes sense as was a holiday and on every Sunday it is under 3,000 tests)

An edit button would be good.

To clarify - results published today are taken from tests conducted 3 days prior. The testing capacity for Tokyo is 97,000. Incredibly no media yet brings any attention to this. Ironically see a headline today about unused vaccines though.

Test numbers are found in the link published in the article (have mentioned previous posts) But its a bit hidden. Anyway, tests from which todays results are taken (conducted on April 26th) - 12,533.

Posted in: More tests and still more questions about Tokyo Olympics See in context

I call this charade complete neglagence. The media is complicent for not drawing attention to this non-use of testing resources. Need to draw your attention to an NHK article, 23rd April - "... The metropolitan government also announced that it has secured a maximum capacity of 97,000 PCR and antigen tests per day, about 1.4 times the previous capacity..."

"He met the deadline, that's the main thing."

How much of the windfall is sustainable after the people are gone after the closing ceremony? The $1 billion estimate will be several X larger between today and 2030's. Is all the infrastracture to be built and jobs created for the few years around this spectical so worthwhile to make governments even now still fall over themselves to host it?

Posted in: Tokyo reports 828 new coronavirus cases; 1,231 in Osaka See in context

The testing number is not so straight forward to obtain, basically on the site linked in the article but need to go here - https://stopcovid19.metro.tokyo.lg.jp/cards/number-of-tested/

Then expand the 'View table' at the bottom underneath the graph and take the 2 testing numbers from the 2 official sources and add together. Today sgould be referencing Saturday's testing (3 days ago) which is 322 (offical reseach center) + 4,943 (medical institutions) = 5,265

Criminal is not exaggeration - From an NHK article, 23rd April - "... The metropolitan government also announced that it has secured a maximum capacity of 97,000 PCR and antigen tests per day, about 1.4 times the previous capacity..."

5,265 tested? This should be under the Crime section.

Posted in: Commuter rush seen despite 3rd coronavirus state of emergency See in context

Its the an easy low effort article to pasta at this time. While large crowds are on trains an in stations across Japan, 99.9% of commuters do not look up from their phone, do not talk to another person, they barely have a pulse. Its the psudo-zombie state of being of the workers commute. But for people looking from the outside, the confusion of what 'state of emergency' even means when such crowds are shown is peculieur indeed.

It's the lackluster testing, no contact tracing, the 'look the other way' mentality that has got the country into this mess. Their own experts have been telling them to take it seriously but with those 'go-to' campaigns they snubbed them hugely.

Posted in: Koike pledges utmost anti-virus steps to deliver 'wonderful' Tokyo Olympics See in context

I share the sentiments of all here but it is really the IOC who are behind this charade, Koike and Co are but puppets. Common sense would have seen this all paused until at least 2024, then Paris could go to 2028, but no, all the money at stake brings us to here. Such a terrible shame for the athletes and the public.

"...even as the prefecture has toughened measures in an attempt to stem a sharp rebound in infections."

This tells you all you need to know at how completely clueless they are about the virus and how pathetic their 'toughened measures' are. Just like the boat that docked in Yokohama a year ago, they have learned zero about how to dealing with it other that paying lip service to the populous.

All those comments recently diriding others for pointing out the abismal testing numbers where are you? The cases seemed to be dropping yet you ignored (or didn't know?) that they stopped testing close contacts of confirmed cases several weeks ago. Many of those people would be asymptomatc and have been interacting with others and spreading it along.... so with only the most 'serious' are being accounted for recently, all the while it being spread by the asymptomatic proxies. Oh, and the icing on this tastless cake? The 'State of Emergency' that has gifted us this mess is to be 'lifted, according to the lastest anonnouncement of a possible anncouncment this Sunday.
