Great news. Japan could learn from its closest neighbor.

10 ( +13 / -3 )

Very impressive.

9 ( +12 / -3 )

It seems that South Korean media outlets are much more cooperative with the government, pretending to actually believe the latest numbers it issued. This is generating a sense of calm, with consumer indices much higher than in most other countries. If only the Japanese media were as cooperative, things would be so much better.

Not to compare the demographic side, S. Korea has half of Japan, but they did a great job.

7 ( +8 / -1 )

Korea handled this situation very well. This is good news.

They HAVE been cooperative. Otherwise, they'd have been thrown out of the kisha club.

South Korea is an example to those who try to shift blame from incompetent leaders they support.

Quality leadership.

It will be interesting to see how quickly Japan overtakes South Korea.

Maybe tomorrow, Monday.

@Miles - are you suggesting a conspiracy? If the Korean media outlets are in bed with the SK government in under-reporting COVID-19 cases, why weren't they doing it back in January when SK, along with Italy had the highest number of cases in the world alongside China?

By the way the Japanese media have been more than co-operative with the Japanese government in downplaying COVID-19 cases in Japan. Where have you been the last 2 months?

Honestly, it's not Iike I need any confirmation anyway. I have still a brain.

I mean good luck ...I think I am a bit tired.

New cases maybe, but previously "cured" and resurgent cases are on the rise. Covid-19 is turning into something akin to HIV, once you catch it, you're stuck with it.

I guess if that point was made clearer here in Japan, people would actually take things a bit more seriously - an airborne HIV/AIDS disease ! Now, that'd make you think twice about going to the Park.
