It’s a balancing act.
for anyone who can’t understand why on the one hand restaurants are being asked to shorten their hours whilst on the other hand domestic travel is being promoted, and why schools remain open and live music concerts remain closed.
And everything will continue to be tweaked on a daily basis.

Australia’s problem now is one of identity. How it sees itself with regard to China, the incoming bushfires, and the illiberal governance during covid. It will be interesting what kind of country appears.

With an ultra strict government, you can achieve all kinds of results. See China for example.
The question is how much do you value individual freedom.
I personally don’t think it should be allowed at any cost to lock down people like the Australian government did. Even one death that resulted from it is a crime.
I prefer the US approach. Sure a ton of people died, but no one was locked down and imprisoned.

Who cares what a foreign panel thinks. This is a deeply sensitive domestic issue.

With Japan witnessing a rapid rise in the number of new coronavirus cases in recent weeks, health care workers fear that the country's medical system may soon be strained to breaking point with hospital bed shortages becoming commonplace, especially in big cities.
my advice is don’t fear. It might not happen. There’s too much fear and projection around this thing.

That’s all other developed countries do now regarding China. They watch and comment . If countries like Japan and the US and UK feel they need to criticize China 24/7, they ought to start acting rather than ranting.

Australia were too draconian on the whole population without any long term plan. It was always going to come back and bite unfortunately. You can’t treat people like that.

Good. The more people that decide to stay at home and not travel from now, the more side legroom I have.

Posted in: My parents are worried I may starve to death if the situation continues, but I can't possibly get them into more debt. I have to deal with this on my own, but with so much uncertainty I'm just getting more and more worried. See in context
Erm, maybe you should reassure your parents that no one starves to death in Japan.
