Japan set to shorten quarantine to 10 days for vaccinated arrivals | The Japan Times

@jamesajack  Give this a read. Tokyo has admitted to scaling back tests since August 10. Predictable results but they can’t quite get positivity rates down.

@ata225  @_m9riaJapan  is the only G7 country that doesn’t let foreign students enter the country who were supposed to be here, or plan to. Of course, they were happy to let in Lambda carrying Olympians. The COVID19 restrictions are capricious, levied unfairly. It sucks

Slightly ironic If had left France, on the 19th, I would be able to go straight home and quarantine today. But I arrived on the 18, so I’m stuck at the APA Hotel until the 21st quarantine rules only changed at midnight yesterday

Japan’s dealing with foreign residents during the pandemic has been masterfully xenophobic, unscientific, and generated distrust internationally. The government also held the 2020 Olympics ignoring all previous protocols and sparked a disastrous 5th wave

APA hotel slogan feels like a threat after being confined there a few days. “You’ll be back” Fuck no. 😱

Why do they have nails on coffin lids? To keep the oncologists out. If you wryly smiled at this joke, you’ve probably dealt with palliative care.

Japan just sent a message to the world. "We don't care about women being raped." The cop who stoppd the sexual assault investigation of Shiori Ito, is now head of the National Police Agency.

SCOOP! Japan is determined not to protect Tokyo 2020 Olympic volunteers and make them perfect vectors for carrying deadly variants of COVID-19 out to Japan & beyond We got ahold of the handbook for staff: There’s no regular testing for volunteers nor will they be vaccinated

BREAKING NEWS: Japan Reported The First Finding Of The Highly Infectious LAMBDA Variant Here, Three Days Before The Olympics Began The National Institute of Infectious Diseases has not yet made the details public. #LAMDA  #ラムダ株

Former yakuza boss, Satoru Takegaki, has a dim view of anti-vaxxers. "I got the vaccine. Today my left arm hurts but that's all. There are people who believe in the occult and won't get vaccinated. I think they are breaking the rules of the world."

A doctor in Nagano Prefecture made a hand-written illustrated guide to the dangers of COVID19, including this explanation of why DELTA variant was so much worse than the original It’s become an internet classic already
