Oh? No broad testing, isolation and quarantine as stipulated by health professionals in the WHO. But here you go, enjoy the flickering sparks. Are we living in the twilight zone?

Lol. Trusting the "health professionals" in the WHO..

Are we living in the twilight zone? XD

"Stay home" is bad advice. People should be in the sun, to boost their vitamin D, which is essential for strong immunity.

Go outside and enjoy the sun, while taking all necessary precautions...

So true!

Do you have any particular reasons or health issues to recluse yourself ?

I live in Chiba, 80km from Tokyo.

I do not stay home, just do my life I usual, keeping cycling and doing long rides. Numbers are have been too low for a population of 130 miilion to really worry. Just taking the usual precautions, especially washing hands. The situation is not catastrophic as some JT readers do suggest. This emergency status do aim at protecting the hospitals first, and the whole medical system.

I do not go anyway to crowded places, so nothing has changed much for me, except I will not move during this Golden Week.

The advantage of this period is that I can do some telework, gaining 4 hours a day on commuting, but still having to go to Tokyo for work 1-2 days per week.

Yes! A sensible reply!

Rats in the streets of a major city, eh? Who would’ve thought it? I’ve got them in my roof from time to time as well as out the back. They’re vermin, of no ecological use except as an occasional food source for foxes or dogs or raptors, as well as being a health risk to humans. So you can put out bait or traps for them with a clear conscience, being careful of course not to accidentally poison your cat or your dog or your kids or any local native wildlife or yourselves. Or call in the exterminator to do it for you.

Domesticated cats and dogs, who also of course serve no ecological use..

Lockdown will definitely happen. Japan played it well, they actually have people begging and clamoring for these draconian measures.

Fail! The drugs were probably what gave him the inspiration for those hit songs in the first place.

No harm (other then perhaps some self-harm) in having people use a bit of self medication. Certainly no worse than the copious amounts of alcohol that are consumed in this country.

hes deserves nothing less than the death penalty..

Giving him exactly what he wants doesn't seem like much of a penalty to me. Throwing him in jail would certainly be a better punishment.
