The mystery of Japan's disappearing COVID crisis
HotAir ^ | October 18, 2021 | Jazz Shaw

Most of the coverage we provided during Japan’s bungled turn hosting the Olympics this summer dealt with the nation’s spiraling COVID infection rates and lagging mass vaccination efforts. But while they limited the in-person attendance of the actual games, the lockdowns and restrictions the government imposed were fairly mild. People were still allowed to go out to bars and restaurants, albeit with modest capacity limits and the streets were far from empty. The Associated Press described the measures as a series of “relatively toothless states of emergency.” That makes this week’s news all the more puzzling to some medical professionals. The COVID crisis across Japan, and particularly in Tokyo, has all but evaporated. In less than two months, Tokyo has gone from reporting more than 6,000 new cases per day to less than 100 this week. And not even the government can explain why.

The Japanese just did what 0bama had the Enemy Media do when he was in the throes of the ‘flu’ during his ‘Reign of Error.’

He told them to stop reporting on it, they did and magically, the problem went away!

Follow the [lack of] Science.

Maybe they should ask the guru of infectious disease, Fauxcy?

Many factors:

1. Hygiene - They are a clean people tot he point of neuroticism.

2. They actually USE ivermectin to treat COVID as well as HCQ as they get malaria in the southern parts of the island chain.

3. They take in good amounts of iodine with their seafood based diet.

4. They are too proud to use medical resources unnecessarily thus they don’t have a the protocol of “Shove person onto a ventilator for gubermint gibs” thing going on.

Probably a lot of other things that would register as Competency.

Oh and they are racist xenophobes so they don’t have thousands of unvetted untested people coming into their country.

Maybe because there has never been a Covid pandemic.

Like climate change, Covid is a giant scam.

Japan has a very high vaccination rate:

And those were fairly recently administered. The USA started vaccination in January. Japan started cranking out the jabs big time in May.

The Japanese generally also eat a very healthy diet.

Swing and a miss. It that was the true answer other countries with high jab rates would be mimicking thier numbers. THEY ARE NOT.

This may not be as much of a “mystery” as the Japanese Health Ministry is making it out to be. Part of the decline is no doubt attributable to the country’s accelerated vaccination push. While it started off very slowly, they’ve now surged to the point where 70% of the population has received the shots. Others point to the fact that the Japanese were very accustomed to wearing face masks in public even before the pandemic began. (It’s a cultural thing.)

Maybe vaccination and masks?

Mybe they stopped using the PCR test with an amplification cycle threshhold so high that somehting like a fragment from a cold in 2017 turned the test positive. Until we are informed of the number of amplification cycles used to show positives, I don’t believe any statistics about Covid. I wonder if statistics on this have even been kept.

Japan has not done much all along. And they are a very high density country. So the reality is that COVID lock downs don’t help. If they did Japan would have been killed. The reality is that Japan is healthy and clean. Their children have been in schools most of the time. Most of the population uses extremely crowded trains. So other than mask wearing, they really should have the most COVID. And they have gotten it. But they did not die.Those with symptoms took antivirals and got better. Being healthy is helpful when it comes to COVID.

The “mystery” is that the real science just has not been done on either the disease of the vaccines.

There has been a lot of name calling and finger pointing, but slow patient boring science is just not happening.

So, I went and looked at your link, and remembered why I don't waste my time looking at any covid stories or links like this.

It's all garbage.

No science, no pertinent information, no nothing (and know nothings).

You'd think the site would talk about WHICH types of "vaccines" Japan was/is using, and perhaps a bit about therapeutics, therapeutic protocols and such.

As I said - complete waste of time.

They were also one of the first to observe ADE in vaccinated. They’ve also approved ivermectin.
