Explain to me the Japanese miracle, /sci/.

In his latest video, Mr. Campbell points to a certain antiparasitic drug as possible factor, but of course it is unimaginable that the civilized Japanese people is taking veterinary drugs in masse.

>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1GF0H9V_1g

He also points to a certain enzime, APOBEC3A, which would make Asian people more resistant to RNA viruses. But I guess you would reject that too, as it would ammount to acknowledging racial differences.

So what could be the cause of this miracle in a developed country located in the Northern hemisphere? We all know that the AUKUS and Europe are now undergoing a dramatic increase in cases which forces the good governments to impose restrictions unwillingly.

Could it be that with the end of the olympic games most of the foreign infectious sources are gone?

Japan isn't even close. When its cases dropped like a rock in August, it was still below 50% fully vaccinate.
>>
>>13884620
guess mask wearing helps
>>
>>13884625
that's not very logical thinking
>>
>>13884625
We have mandatory masks indoors (and even outdoors in crowded events) in my country. And the vax rate is one of the highests in the world.
Explain why are we not Japan.
>>
>>13884639
sure bud, math is racist
cope
>>
>>13884642
because Japan has already had a proper mask wearing culture, where western world has illogical aversion of masks and keep wearing them under the nose, keep touching it, and otherwise half ass the measures.
>>
>>13884642
>mandatory masks
and half are retards who keep them under the nose
>>
>>13884625
They were already wearing masks, though, and cases were still soaring. The drop in the curve happened within 10 days of the Ivermectin recommendation.
>>
>>13884620
>>13884746
It happened because it was summer you retard.
>>
>>13884753
>It happened because it was summer you retard.
Oh, then cases also spiked because it's summer? That actually makes sense to you?
>>
>>13884746
there are still japs that dont mask and take precautions, but many do. Now, knowing everything we do about their culture and history, do you really believe less japanese people would mask now than they did during that peak? are you sure that they arent they only country still trying?

If your country is like mine and is spiking again, im sure you have noticed less masking, less cleaning, and generally more behavior that spreads a virus. Perhaps, vaccines aren't enough by themselves however combined with diligent and proper hygiene(masks) they far exceed either countermeasure by itself.
>>
>>13884770
>there are still japs that dont mask and take precautions, but many do.
That's not my point. My point is the majority have been wearing masks for the entire pandemic. I seriously doubt there was a sudden change in masking behavior at the beginning of August, and then another dramatic change in behavior in the middle of August. We've never seen mask mandates have that dramatic of an effect, not anywhere. I don't believe masks are responsible for the change in cases. The difference in the vaccination rate from the start to end of August was 14%, from 25% to 39%. If 39% of the population being vaccinated can drop cases to almost nothing, then what's going wrong in countries that have a 70%+ vaccination rate and case rates that are out of control?
>>

clean polite society and not forcing the treatment to everyone like morons

>The difference in the vaccination rate from the start to end of August was 14%, from 25% to 39%. If 39% of the population being vaccinated can drop cases to almost nothing
you're a fucking idiot in that you dont see the obvious spike in rate there
>We've never seen mask mandates have that dramatic of an effect,
lmao, even in the us we saw the mandates directly correlate with lower infections, and mandates lifting directly correlate with more infections.

The largest drop in cases in the USA occurred in early 2021, it took two months for cases to fall from their peak to the bottom of the curve. Japan did it in two weeks. When the USA pushed quarantining at the beginning of the pandemic, the cases barely even fell, they mostly leveled off. The USA has never seen anything occur like what happened in Japan.

>/sci/ence isn't faith based
Are you fucking kidding me? You can say shit like "do you really believe" but then when I respond with what I believe, you give me shit for it? Piss off. You've done nothing to prove that there was a sudden dramatic change in mask behavior, twice (at the start and end of the curve), or supported how a measly 40% vaccination rate is so effective in Japan when the UK is over 70% and struggling.
>>
>>13884746
Vaccination level in Japan going from 3.5% up to 76% is what did it.
US is the horse pill champ, with underwhelming results.

Kek. It wasn't at 3.5% on July 24, and it wasn't at 76% on September 25. Try again.

Of course it was the vaccine, and masks! Because no other countries are vaccinated or wear masks. And look at India, they're so clean and polite, they definitely curbed their cases with vaccines and masks. It definitely wasn't a drug that horses are given. Nope nope.

>>
>>13885126
You honestly believe most people in India are given Ivermectin? Do you know how many people are in India? Do you realize the percentage of poor people in India? And you honestly believe the majority of people are given Ivermectin. Are you stupid?

Also you assume it can't possibly be any other factor and yet all you show is # of cases and pretend it MUST naturally be 1 single drug the majority of the population can't get.

>>13884536
japan did a crack down on international goods. they have a better version of the FDA and consumer protection agency all rolled into 1. they tested 100% of all vaccine bottles shipped to japan and found more than 100 million contaminated ones which had a few variants. 1 had a polymer contaminate and another had a metalic one

why would they go to such lengths? japan has been on the receiving end of a relatively abusive relationship with america for decades. even back in the 80s and 90s america was caught sending marines into the northern most island of japan to kill and abduct civilians which defended themselves resulting in small piles of dead marines which could be identified and proven to be our marines. this happened again under obama. also the american question how did 2 planes full of africans with assault riffles not take over japan was circulated after africas little outburst. so our own social media shows a belief that black people with guns were allegedly supposed to take over japan. and mcdonalds which operates at a loss in japan 2 times the american military fessed up to knowingly shipping mad cow beef to japan to sell through mcdonalds. both times less than 50 people contracted mad cow and that seemed odd since they have more than 50 customers. so they did a study and many east asians seem to be resistant or immune to some prion diseases. the explanation is the ones who were not died off long ago because asians like eating lots of types of meat often and a prion disease is a abnormal protein disorder and each person has a spread of proteins their body makes due to genes. mad cow may be easier for asians to be immune to than whites. (some nordic populations has very strong immune systems that can even eat aids though transplants of bone marrow dont seem sufficient just to site another odd instance).

so in general they have been very apprehensive in recent times and they tested everything
>>
>masks
People are still pretending they did anything?
>>
>>13886679
I doubt they tested it the way you think unless you got a source on it. I would guess that it started with an aware medical professional noticing contamination and when they reported it their FDA equivalent wasn't bought and paid for so they investigated and found many more.
They also might not actually be contaminants either, it could have been something in shipping where it came out of solution. It would be very nice to have indicators like that inside of a vaccine that will let you know if it was over storage temp or otherwise.
Never getting jabbed btw.

Japanese are obsessed with hygiene, are very mindful of others and are collective and homogeneous enough to make drastic changes to their entire society to counter Covid-19, with very little mass-spreader retards

>Western countries can't into masks or social distancing
But I thought masks and social distancing are why the flu completely vanished?
>>
>>13886714

>>
>>13886793
Just enough to get rid of the boring old flu but not enough to stop MEGAflu 1.9 (Now with Covididen!)
>>
>>13884566
It doesn't have to be. The Japs have a cohesive culture and identity which means they give a shit about each other. You can leave your wallet in most Tokyo metro stations and come back a day later to find it untouched. Americans have no problem (literally and figuratively) spitting in each other's faces.
>>
