What an utterly ridiculous statement.

Why is it OK for the ban on spectators from overseas to include vaccinated people when people in Japan can attend even if they have not been vaccinated?
Because you can still be a carrier of the virus.

Presently, many may agree, we are all have ‘a sense of crisis’ trying to understand how this is worded and what is intended by such statements: “the coronavirus is waning as the pandemic persists”.
I take it English is not your first language....

Why do conservatives hate the American people so much?
And it's usually conservatives/republicans who suffer most from conservative/republican policies.

With the short- to medium-term prospects of the industry in doubt, I would imagine fewer grads will be lining up to get into it anyway.

kohakuebisu has already kindly explained it well enough but here's a bit more
就活 (shū-katsu) is short for 就職活動 (shūshoku-katsudō), which means job hunting (activities), particularly those engaged in by college students in seeking employment after graduation.
It has since gone on to spawn various other, often frivolous ～活 (-katsu),
such as the abovementioned 婚活 (kon-katsu) from 結婚 (kekkon = marriage) and the papa-katsu of this article.
The Japanese love coming up with variations on terms like this, such as all the various ～ハラ (-hara) that came after セクハラ (sekuhara) sexual harassment.

On topic, can anyone, please explain the origin of the term ‘papa-Katsu’?
Look up the first two and you will understand the third.

Ridiculous comments on here, as usual.
If you want to know what Japanese people really think, go on Yahoo News and read the comments in Japanese.
You might find that, believe it or not, Japanese people are not quite as stupid as you seem to think.

It really feels that this type of story is happenning [sic] way too often. ... almost every day now there is a story of some kid being murdered by a parent or relative these days.
Really? Almost every day?
Another daily mother-murderer report.
Good lord, it's worse than I thought!
Happens way too often, every week or more.
No. Only weekly. Phew!

Posted in: Do you think there should be a moratorium on landlords evicting tenants who can't pay their rent because they lost their job or a significant part of their income due to the coronavirus? See in context
The timing is bad. April is coming up and many landlords are likely to kick out a non-paying tenant in the hopes of getting a new tenant to sign up for two years. Beyond April, they would be probably be more inclined to cut the tenant some slack, as it better to keep a non-paying tenant who will eventually start paying again than risk being tenantless indefinitely in the current climate.

What kind of name is HodoBuzz?
To someone without even a rudimentary understanding of Japanese? A bit silly sounding I suppose.
To anyone else, 「報道バズ」 fits the subject matter well enough.

I was translating an article today which mentioned that average wages in OECD countries are 1.5 times higher than those of Japan. That's half the problem right there!
