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.
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.
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
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
