Memoryfix: Did you just graduate from the millennial college for hyperbole and over reaction? I would suggest you find some hobbies and be kind to yourself for a while. Nobody is telling you to not have fun unless your idea of fun is hanging out on poorly ventilated and densely packed trains. Take it easy...

Whilst Dylan could not sustain the level of adulation he sustained in the early years of his career (how could he?). He has never gone away and he has released some excellent records throught the 6 decades he has been active. His lifetime output is pretty staggering and he remains an icon of popular music. Many of you here are displaying your ignorance.

I predict the number of cases and deaths will continue to grow despite the state of emergency. In Japan as people seem to assume the by wearing a mask, they are immune to this thing. The paper masks that most people seem to wearing are ineffective at preventing the inhalation and exhalation of viral particles so cannot pretect you from the virus. They are merely signals to others that you are conforming to the social norm of wearing a mask. Moreover, people ignore social distancing and isolation measures. I went to the super market on Sunday and the place was packed with families going for a family outing! People do not get that this is serious and they should be limiting their time in close proximity to other people in confined spaces...

Money should be paid across the board! My reasons for saying this:
Everyone pays taxes. It’s not fair for hardworking people not to get this.
A good point, but perhaps it is up to the employer to do this rather than the government. However, perhaps the government can create an incentive for employers to do so such as subsidizing the increase or offering tax breaks to businesses.

To every citizen? What about every permanent resident with legitimate employment who also pays their taxes?
Doubt it...I read elsewhere that the plan was intended for citizens. This is fairly standard behaviour for governments to restrict recovery to citizens. When I lived in the USA in 2007-2008, there was a recovery rebate given of about $600 which as a foreigner, I was not entitled to...What are you going to do?
