Japanese researchers have developed a blood test that could serve as an early warning system for serious illnesses caused by corona infection.
In previous cases, low values ​​of the serum CCL17 have indicated that a severe course of the disease is imminent, said the scientists from the National Center for Global Health and Medicine.
"If the CCL17 value is less than 100 picograms per milliliter, then we admit the patient to the hospital. If it is above 400, the patient can stay in a hotel or at home and only introduce himself every three days," says research group leader Masaya Sugiyama.

2/ The commentariat has difficulty in deriving Govt policy intent from actions, only when the implication is positive, they find it very easy to unambiguously divine Govt's policy intentions from statements of random party people, when the implication is negative!🤓🤡

#Japan #Tokyo #Tourism #Coronavirus

Japan registered around 8,700 tourists this August, 99.7 percent fewer than in August last year. This was shown by current data from the government on Friday. Nevertheless, the number of tourists continues to increase from month to month.
The number of visitors has more than doubled compared to the estimated 3,800 from the previous month. In May it was just 1,663, the lowest figure since such statistics began to be compiled in 1964, according to data published by the Japan Tourism Agency.
Even before the corona pandemic, there was a decline in visitor numbers, which can be attributed to the dispute with South Korea. The latest figures show the eleventh consecutive monthly decline since October last year.

Mori, who was visiting Taiwan to attend a memorial service for former President Lee Teng-hui, told Tsai during a televised meeting at the Presidential Office in Taipei on Friday that Suga called him a day earlier to pass on his greetings to the president.

#Japanese legislators want joint #US #Japan military drills near contested Senkaku islands

About 100 members of Japan’s governing Liberal Democratic Party in a draft proposal Thursday suggested joint operations to strengthen control of the Senkaku Islands
stripes.com/news/japanese-…
“The Defense Ministry should conduct joint drills with the United States around the Nansei island chain including Kuba and Taisho islands,” the proposal stated.

Kuba and Taisho islands are part of the Senkakus.
Though the chain is a barren group of rocks & islands totaling 7 square miles, the surrounding area is a rich fishing ground & may hold oil & natural gas.

Chinese ships had sailed through the waters surrounding the Senkakus, for 111 consecutive days between April 14 and Aug. 2

Yoshihide Suga Is #Japan's New Prime Minister. Here's What That Means for the #US

The new leader steps into a tense geopolitical climate amid rapidly deteriorating #US #China relations. Yet experts say he is largely untested in the foreign policy arena.
time.com/5888989/yoshih…
“Suga is more domestically-oriented and several questions have been raised about his propensity to deal with foreign relations and international issues,” says Donna Weeks, professor of political science at Musashino University in Tokyo.
Suga, Abe’s longtime chief cabinet secretary, is largely expected to follow in his predecessor’s footsteps when it comes to foreign policy. But he may not be able to replicate the Trump-Abe bromance, not least because he admits he lacks the diplomatic skills.

scmp.com/week-asia/poli…
Japanese PM Yoshihide Suga’s decision to appoint his predecessor’s brother as defence minister sparked an immediate reaction from China over his Taiwan ties.

Nobuo Kishi, 61, is a sibling of Shinzo Abe, but he was adopted by his maternal uncle as a baby & carries his surname.
Kishi is known for his close ties to the self-ruled island of Taiwan, having represented the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) over the years in engagements with current Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen and other Taiwanese leaders.

-low birth rate,
-lowest immigration rate in the world,
-difficult to obtain work visas,
-low innovation rate.
Japans national debt is atm at $12,180,239,362,641 / ¥1,279,473,243,848,623

I know there're already many profile pieces on Suga out there, but here is my version: Can behind-the-scenes operator Suga -- who critics say is populist, visionless & ineloquent -- excel as #Japan's new leader? @japantimes
japantimes.co.jp/news/2020/09/1…
Suga seems to like to tout his humble upbringing, but is his rags-to-riches story really all it's cracked up to be? His childhood was nowhere near as underprivileged as the late charismatic PM Kakuei Tanaka, the "people's prime minister"
But one thing that he may have gained from his humble roots is sensitivity to the needs of the general public, gravitating toward populist initiatives all his career -- the latest example being his calls for slashing mobile phone bills

Happy Friday folks!!

Here is a bright, shiny new trade deal for you as a gift wrapped #Brexit present from our friends in #Japan 🎎🇯🇵🏮🏯

Remainers said we couldn't get a better deal than the #EU

Here's why they were wrong...(again)

[THREAD]

gov.uk/government/new…
[1] Digital is the future and this is streets ahead of the EU deal in that respect. There is an increased level of data recognition & a ban on data localisation, which will prevent UK businesses from having the extra cost of setting up servers in Japan. Huge for our #Tech sector.
[2] Financial services are our biggest export to Japan, accounting for 28% of all UK exports. This deal provides increased access for our invaluable Financial Services industry and much deeper regulatory co-operation - something the #EU wouldn't allow.
