that undetected infections could spread quickly during the Lunar New Year holiday, which is just weeks away.

As long as the mainland chinese do not overrun Japan during the Lunar New Year Holiday, I feel safe!

I remember that Hiroshima was going to do 800,000 PCR tests, we decorated all our headlines last week.

What happened to that?

Beijing might be the most crooked city on Earth right now, I said might, ok.

More false promises/propaganda.

Months ago Tokyo was to increase testing to 200,000/day, then 100,000, then 60,000.

Still, we are at an average of 5,000-8,000 day.

Hiroshima... I’d guess nothing is happening.

Glad to see China doing some mass testing though, thats how you find clusters and control spread.

The CCP is using PCR testing as a cover for DNA collection.

I'm sure they're still considering it.

But they better get a move on if they want to test everyone by their goal of March.

No need to rush these things though...

Even (if) CCP conducting their mass testing outside of China is not to be considered out of ordinary. They have the moral obligation to do that. They have to supply the whole world of the equipments ( not defective) for testing for free.

No thanks, cash will do, and no strings attached.

In fact, forget the cash. We should all just shun China and Chinese products.

The number of new asymptomatic cases, which China does not classify as confirmed cases, rose to 119 from 113 cases a day earlier.

Is this what other countries are doing? It would definitely skew the numbers way way down.

That's very easy to say isn't it. Have you checked your shirts or shoes, your computer or your keyboards? We're all sucked into this "cheap China thing." While they have the means, they should take the responsibilities for what they caused to the whole world.

China seems to be making much more effort than many countries to solve the problem, much more than Japan does. Where I live, which is not so far from Tokyo, supermarkets and other shops do not even check the temperature of customers.

Don't knock China when it does the right thing.

2 ( +4 / -2 )

The total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Mainland China now stands at 88,804, while the death toll remained unchanged at 4,635.

Was this written for the Onion, or is Reuters taking the figures published by the CCP at face value??

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

Which will arrive first - Hiroshima testing or vaccines?

For a second I saw that as

Beijing launches mass virus.

Good grief!

The right thing in China is ALWAYS the wrong thing, since when have China been credited with doing something right, OOPS I meant wrong?
