Canada to date 1 million 850 thousand tests done

Population is less than Japan's, land and home space wider than Japan's and yet there are more cases.

Japan's tests to date just over 303, 000 test done.

Canada 1, 850,000

Japan 303,000

Subtract= 1, 553, 000 is the amount more Canada has done compared to Japan.

Today's Covid-19 Japan Tracking stated that Japan has done zero testing.

So, until Japan has reached the one million mark regards to testing I will feel absolutely safe in this country.

You could not pay me to take any produced vaccines here or else where around the world as it will take years to find out the side effects if there are any.

Also, Canada's numbers are greater with that smaller population and larger land mass and so believing the numbers here is impossible.

Here is what gets my goat that the whole team and all the coaches will be tested in the next 2 days...hmmm...what so wrong with that. NOthing! What is wrong is that when my Japanese doctor friend sends their patients for testing there is no guarantee that this persons' patients with pneumonia type systems will be accepted or not. And here is another thing, they are going to test players and coaches who have no fevers for 3 or 4 straight days, whatever, the governments new rule is for testing.

If one goes on COVID-19 Japan you see the testing that has been done is just over the 298, 000 mark since this virus has begun, and my native country which has a much smaller population and larger land mass has done over 1 million 800, 000 thousand tests.

So the regular folks the best of luck in getting testing and the famous and rich no worries at all.

Posted in: Tokyo issues alert after 34 coronavirus cases confirmed See in context

Before people keep talking about how great Japan is doing and or how safe you feel go on COVID-19 Tracker

Japan to date has done 296,308 testing. Canada, my native country to date has done 1 million 8 hundred thousand tests the population is considerably lower in Canada than Japan, more open space and yet more cases. Why? Testing, testing until that is done we all are in danger of contracting this deadly virus.

Hostess clubs- who patrons them??? Business men who need to stoke their egos, because they are usually married with families and do not get it at home. Where do those men go after contacting the virus? Home to their families who than go out spreading it to their neighbors, school friends and the list goes on they are the innocent victims making us all the innocent victims.

Pachinko parlors I hear are run by N. Korean ex-pats that and where money is channeled back to N. Korea.

We do not need either to keep the economy going, in fact we need neither to keep the economy going and the government should outlaw them both.

Lol, really people know how to act responsible. Okay, 34 cases were reported, yesterday, that is what we know of for sure. Most of the cases are identified coming from Shinjuku and flaring up in hostess clubs and who goes to these hostess clubs??? Family men, who need their egos stoked and where do they go after visiting these hostess clubs??? Home to their families, and those family members than go onto spreading it to schools and so on.

What I do not understand why Japan is letting these hostess clubs and Pachinko parlors that are run by N. Koreans remain open. A lot of times so many shady and sexual things go in them and not an essential business that will make or break Japan's economy and the Pachinko parlors are supporting the N. Korean regime.

Geronimo, well said. Truly, I could not agree with you more the freedom of not worrying about falling sick is a huge blessing. Japan's numbers are being kept artificially low due to the low on purpose testing.

Vince Black, Taiwan was the first country to recognize there was danger lurking out of China and warned the rest of the world. This is a country that wishes not to have association with China and does everything in its power to run a democratic country.

Posted in: Japan OKs saliva-based tests for coronavirus detection; 34 new cases reported in Tokyo See in context

I can tell you as a fact that my Japanese doctor friend has told me that their patients who had pneumonia type symptoms were recommended and still others, too, and are being turned away. My question, why??? This doctor has no answer for the why?? But told me to be very, very careful that the numbers are surely much higher due to the lack of testing.

This virus is real and alive, here.

Just look at an European 28 year old Prince who went out partying (illegally at that) and got the virus.

After an earthquake minus the virus you got options, however, with the virus you options become very limited if you do not want to catch it.

Posted in: Tokyo to further relax restrictions on Monday, Koike says See in context

I read on here how people are going to go out and do not care and or fine taking a risk. Fine when you get sick stay home, do not go to the hospitals and put all the doctors and nurses and the rest of us at risk due to your selfishness.

There are some of us out here that do not wish to get sick, making the sacrifice to stay home and go out only when necessary for the good of our families, neighbors and so on.

It is a shame that we cannot all work as one and rid this virus it is realistic to expect only positive results. Again, for those who do not and like a death wish than by all means just do not go to a hospital exposing the virus and asking for help.

Northern knife, this was a few weeks back when there were no masks to be found and there was a shortage and you grabbed them would you could. At that time, this doctor was having to reuse his masks during the time of seeing patients. Yes, you are right they are plenty now and what a blessing at this time.

I have a friend who is a Japanese doctor and shocked to read this. Recently, I found a box of masks he was running short and dropped them off at the clinic for him and his family. We should be stepping up for our health care workers and not shunning them.

With that said, I have read of instances in the States too, where healthcare workers had their leases revoked and asked to find different accommodations due to their work.

I am sure this worldwide right now we may just not be hearing about it, however, it is good to be writing about it and so this stigma can be addressed.

Prayers go out to all healthcare workers who put their lives on the line each and everyday for us all.

Posted in: Lawyers say Japanese video game time ban for kids violates constitution See in context

It is up to a parent and not the government to state what a child should or should not be doing. I refuse to buy my son any games until his marks and studies come up, full-stop. Monday to Thursday prior to school being out zero tv only from Friday to Sunday and even than limited.

I do not need no government body telling me what I can or cannot do with my child regulating what he can or cannot do.

Posted in: As Japan reopens, coronavirus testing slowed by bureaucracy and staff shortages See in context

Me too, finally, I have been writing about my Japanese doctor friend who has stated to me be very careful the testing is very low.

With summer here, there are going to be more people out and about going to the beaches, parks and amusement parks this virus is going to spread faster than ever.

Abe and his cronies are not helping with the mickey mouse masks that anyone could and are making themselves. That money could have been spent on testing, supporting the elderly and single parents and others. They all should be hanging their heads in Shame!

This is not a white and black issue this an issue of humanity. This man's basic human rights were stolen from him once that officer put his knee on HIS THROAT and remained there after he was telling the officers he could not BREATH. That officer and the others need to go to prison for a VERY, VERY LONG TIME.

Those who looted in the name of this man you are not honoring his soul and or his family by committing a crime you are traveling a very similar course as the officers.

Prayers to this man's family in what is clearly going to be a very trying time.

Parents need to save their money for their kids we do not know when this crap is going to end, when one will loose their job and going to eat next. It is about 15 thousand yen just for an adult and child to enter Disneyland, again that can buy a week to two weeks worth of food for the table.

Japan will be next going to beaches, water parks and open parks it is not an if it is a when. I do not believe Japanese will do the wild pool parties like the States has seen, however, going to the beaches and stuff like that it will happen.

Too all, who believe Japan has done well in some ways, yes, due to the cultural ideals of wearing masks when one is sick and or being around people who are sick, taking off their shoes at the door and washing their hands.

With that said, Abe along with so many other world leaders missed a huge opportunity to halt the virus in its steps when Taiwan put out a huge warning about this ugly disease. When Abe called this emergency lockdown still things were running and people were still out and about it was such a waste of 2 months where he should have locked everything down for the exception of supermarkets this virus really would be halved and where we would all could have some semi-normal lives. Again, he missed the boat big time.

Jimizo, the solution is everyone would just hold up for a month, solid, it would isolate and cut the virus cases and following that would be easier to track any new cases. That is the solution it is called common sense in order to rid this virus for good. This stop and go is only prolonging this onslaught to the economy and more importantly to peoples' lives.

Posted in: Tokyo slowly gets back into motion after lifting of state of emergency See in context

I just wrote to my Japanese doctor friend an email and this person said keep my guard up they are not testing enough and most likely the numbers are much higher.

Those who believe the heat will bring down the virus how wrong you are. Why??? Summer makes people want to go to water parks, beaches, parks and other indoor and outdoor public places that brings people in close contact with one another.

Second, if you think the heat will kill the virus look at Guam they got the virus from the Philippines and they tracked that a country that is always, hot.

People who give a big pat on Japan's back I wonder if they will do this again when the numbers spike to a number where hospitals will be filled to the brim if they already are not.

No obvious successor, really??? Put Koike in and give her a chance as she has done amazing job through this pandemic including standing up to Abe. That is why none of the old boys do not want her as PM as she will not take any of their guff, and will most likely run this country so efficiently to the point the where the public coppers will see less stealing from our tax payers money by that same good old boy club inside those political walls.
