206 tests performed yesterday in all Japan.
That’s one way to ensure there’s not spike in cases!

As a Canadian, I think, great. Help keep us safe by keeping your own people in, at no expense to us. We’ll save our troops for practical uses like to setting up mobile / temporary hospitals.

do you think for a minute that there is anyone in Canada trying to illegally enter the USA at the moment?

You call it “clumsy handling” but it seems to me it was better handled than the Ruby Princess in Australia!

Having a huge event in the pipeline for next year, after things return to normal could be a great thing for those facilities looking to get financing to tide them over during the dead zone. Not much help for those already in the bubble who were relying on the fast injection of inflated prices to stay afloat. Hopefully most (or at very least the best) of them can get interest free government loans to see them through the drought. Once things lighten up, there should be pent up surge of domestic travel ahead of the full international free-for-all that will happen the minute a vaccine becomes readily available.

And the request to quarantine won’t start for three days. WTH?

Mori!! Never one to be accused of doing the right thing. What a self-centered imbecile.

good that he’s negative and good that he tested, particularly because he stated that he wouldn’t self-quarantine after having contact with people who tested positive.
Ivanka, on the other hand, very responsibly went into isolation and hopefully won’t need to be tested.

@Beanie - don't forget that a lot of cases where people survive will go undiagnosed and unrecorded. My plan if I start getting flu-like symptoms is to stay at home and wait it out unless it gets super bad. The likelihood is that I will never know whether I had it or not.
Also, someone dying from it automatically shifts them from the "active" column to the "resolved" column. It takes longer for a survivor to be moved over.
All excellent points, ADK99
In addition to the undiagnosed positives that recover and are missed in the count will be some deaths that go uncounted as they weren’t tested / died before the outbreak was recognised etc but those numbers will presumably be much smaller.

As of 82 000 contaminated (and known!!) there has been 2 800 deaths so far. You can do the math it's around 3.5%.
I applaud your use of facts and math, ut would like to point out that instead of using total number of cases and total deaths, you should divide the number of resolved cases, divided by deaths.
Of the 82,000 recognised cases, 46,000 are still active. We don’t know yet if they’ll recover or die.
35,600 cases are closed.
Of those 32,800 recovered and 2,800 died.
(92% vs 8%)

Encouraging people to stay home and not overwhelm hospitals unless really sick (or high risk) is a good idea. Most people will experience this virus as a minor cold. Going out to get tested just increases the chance of more people getting infected and even if you do test positive, there is no treatment unless you are critical and need a ventilator
The problem with this limited testing is that too many people don’t realise how widespread infection is, so they aren’t telling employees to stay home, aren’t cancelling concerts, aren’t taking the kind of actions that would stop the spread.

I saw new video by Dr. Iwata and he seemed sincere.

Since I live in Japan and not in any other country, I am concerned with the sex crime rate here, where I live, and it just doesn't make sense to me to compare Japan with other places.
Thus it is far scarier to be a woman in Japan.
Do you see what you did there? You said it doesn’t make sense to compare and then concluded with a comparison.
I agree with everything you said in between, but will add that none of that is unique to Japan.

Groping on trains is a big problem in Japan so do Japanese women feel safe on trains dude.
That happens everywhere. First time I was groped in broad daylight I was was thirteen. And I was too shocked to kick him in the nuts. Ditto when a guy waggled his junk at me when I was twelve. That was in Canada, where I was sometimes literally afraid for my life when walking home from work at night and turning to random women or couples entering their home to pretend they knew me as some creep was following me as I zigzagged blocks. I gut punched a groper on a long distance bus once in Canada and had him arrested. Lots of witnesses who took a bloody long time to say anything but after I hit him they all piped up.
yeah. I’ve had a creep on a train here get a grope in just before jumping the train ー not giving me time to twist his arm off his wrist. I haven’t felt scared for my life or been prevented from going where I want when I want because of inherent danger though. It is always more dangerous to be female than men imagine.

Those who can should avail themselves of “flex time” and work-from-home options. That can held minimising crowding for others who have commute at peak times. I expect my employer will announce that everyone who can should work from home.

People like him and Pat Roberts, both of whom blames disasters on gay people, give Christians a bad name.

I have no need for this, yet like Strangerland, I can feel the twinge of a hankering.
I loved building blanket forts in the living room as a kid, and tree houses and forts (snow and lumber, depending on the season).
Perhaps instead of buying yet another tent, I should just build myself a blanket fort this weekend in my living room.

I have been really impressed with the technology and transparency. We get to hear the refs discuss decisions as they review an incident from several angles and confirm their decisions. Really amazing.

The Brits should be embarrassed for the truthful messages being leaked? Ok. That’s fair.

Will it be an air show, Wolfpack? The ones I’ve seen have always been over an airfield, rather than a city - for safety reasons. Over a city you get a flyover with some coloured trails at best.

Herve, am I right in guessing that your link is to “Russia Today”? How reliable is that source?

This fakery May have been the straw that broke Sarah Sanders back. She could go along with a lot, but not faking the USA into a new war.
