Why is this news worthy?

It’s assault. It has the potential to cause serious harm to the women if he has a disease. It’s very newsworthy.

While the old and vulnerable sit and wait. The contempt the IOC and the government have for the people of Japan is unforgivable.

People are stupid. Even if the vaccine was genuine and effective they will have no proof they were vaccinated.

Posted in: Cautious cuddling? England to OK hugs as lockdown eases See in context

"Cautious" cuddling, as advice from a Johnson who's fathered around 7 kids is comedy gold.

At today’s press conference Johnson was asked who he’d be cuddling first. He declined to answer.

Posted in: Cautious cuddling? England to OK hugs as lockdown eases See in context

It was a guideline. Social distancing, ie keeping at least a metre apart, obviously means no hugging with anyone outside your household or bubble. I haven’t hugged my siblings or friends yet, and I have only been able to meet them outside. Next week we can meet indoors, including inside the pub and not outside, and I can finally give them a cuddle. It’s overwhelming.

Posted in: What are some practical ways that the Japanese government could speed up the coronavirus vaccination process? See in context

Train volunteers to administer vaccines, also for the admin and marshalling at vaccine centres. You know, like other countries have done. Also, open local vaccination centres, if people have to travel to get a vaccine they are less likely to get one. The elderly, disabled and vulnerable can’t travel. Approve other vaccines for use. Send appointments to those eligible for vaccines as inviting them to make appointments, especially as the system is obviously not coping, means lower vaccine uptake. Again, learn from other countries experiences. Stop reinventing the wheel, Japan.

Posted in: Japan speeds up COVID vaccine rollout for elderly See in context

Is that 4,500,000 people receiving both doses or 9,000,000 people getting the first dose in two weeks? Either way, without the facilities or staff this is an impossible target.

Posted in: Labour's Sadiq Khan re-elected London mayor See in context

Khan was the second choice candidate for those who voted Green, LibDem, ProEu, Womens Equality, Count Binface etc as a first choice. It’s always decided on the second preference choices. Delighted Binface beat Piers Corbyn, UKIP and the other cranks, shame he didn’t trounce failed actor-musician-husband Laurence Fox.

Just employ people who have had covid and recovered to work at these places, either locals or immigrant labour. The world is not short of people who have had it.

You can get reinfected with covid.

But they don’t have immunity from covid. They have a greatly reduced risk of having covid, but they are not immune. This sort of nonsense lulls people into a false sense of security.

Posted in: Japan to introduce 'vaccine passports' for international travel See in context

The vaccine passport issue isn’t as simple as people may believe. Japan needs to vaccinate it’s population first. Will they recognise vaccines given in other countries, or vaccines not used it Japan? Will my UK administered Astra Zeneca vaccines be accepted? Japan has refused to licence the AZ vaccine, so it may not accept people who have been vaccinated with it.
