The J.League's governing board opted to delay 94 matches in the top two tiers scheduled until March 15 to help alleviate a situation chairman Mitsuru Murai called "somewhat of a national crisis."

"Somewhat" well, on Tuesday it probably was, but today, it's now become a full blown one because of Abe!

Necessary steps to keep the children safe to make sure the virus doesn't spread.

No easy solution to a tough and complex problem but measures like this can help contain the virus and buy more time.

You never like the Japanese government why would your comments change now Yubaru.

Oh wait. never mind. They just counted the cruise ship as part of japan's cases- which they should.

No they should not. I'm tired of them doing this. It creates confusion and I'm not able to tell how many infections are out in the wild.

I think they should. But what I do agree with you on is that they need to stop flip flopping on it- counting them together, then counting them separately. Because you are right. It causes confusion- hence my first post.

who knew abe was so powerful that he can spread covid-19 across japan (and possilby the world just to add to his awesome powers) thereby creating this national crisis all by himself.

could abe or the gov't have done more to stop the spread of c-19? heck no. it's occuring in people who haven't even been to china or been in contact with people who have been in china. so no, abe is not to blame for this national crisis.

It is a horrifying photo. May as well be playing to an audience 50% robots. Masks hide a great deal of facial expression, so sorry, Kenichi-san, cannot agree on this point. Just consider how more expressive this crowd shot would be without those white squares.
