People don't care about the state of emergency. All restaurants and bars are opened late and serve alcohol. Switching off the lights at night in Shibuya is just a show for the evening news. See you soon for 4000 cases a day (knowing the tests are very limited…). Further than Japan only, this covid crisis reflects perfectly the “incredible greatness” of mankind and those who rule it.

Close all non essential shops.
Close the bars and restaurants.
Close the cinemas, karaoke, clubs, snacks, kyabakura and live house, etc.
Forbid all gatherings and cancel events.
Put messages on TV, radio, internet and social media ALL THE TIME.
Ask celebrities, especially popular with the young audience to make warning messages. They will listen more if it comes from them than old politicians.Tell and tell again to people that it will go to (more) ruin if they don't act NOW.
Unfortunately, not everyone is responsible and careful. The authorities have to say again and again, and not just for the weekend, to be careful, to stay at home as much as possible and to respect physical distance with others. If we don't act now, even a lockdown won't save Japan.
