Tests and vaccines. Everything other, excluding isolation, is a compromise.

Simple, safe and easy testing would end these problems.

Dude, go ahead and throw stones ~ trash my car. I got ya on video and look at this - I test negative for the virus. Oh you haven't taken the test yet? Shame, shame, oh and thanks for the new car bud.

Love you too.

Posted in: Japan to revise criteria on symptoms for being tested for virus See in context

So under the revision only asymptomatic covid-19 positive carriers will be responsible for spreading the virus? Oh, you won't be able to test them will you?

Only public officials will be allowed to release the information that a user has been diagnosed with the virus.

What? Liar. You'll be hacked ~

What? Liar.

"It will only be meaningful if everyone uses the app, so we will make efforts to promote it,"

Are you going to force all the kiddies and the grandparents to buy a phone and wifi so you have a job even if they don't want your app?

Posted in: Hospitals turning away sick people as coronavirus cases surge See in context

If you are a foreigner and in Osaka or Tokyo or a place where hospitals are turning away patients, you should now consider your personal safety deeply without panic. It is likely during times of hysteria, natural disasters, emergency, etc for individuals, groups and societies to unravel. You could appear like a target to a temporarily irrational individual or group more so during times mentioned above.

Is your dwelling place secure against a group or individual? For how long? How long could you survive at your dwelling place if you had to lock yourself in for your safety?

If you are in good health could it be more secure to be off grid for you?

Keep enough cash on hand to survive without banks or electronics should there be an earthquake during the Covid-19 case increase.

Now would be a good time to set up a (Facebook?) group specifically for foreigners in Japan to get through the pandemic and establish a support network to assist each other just in case.

The shinkansen should only be used for emergency personnel and passengers who are covid-19 negative if this is an emergency lockdown right?

Oh, you aren't going to wait until there are more covid-19 positive cases than there are negative in the population so you can make money are you?

Bad idea. Unless you are trying to launder black money while trying to claim it as taxpayers taxed income.

Posted in: Koike takes tougher stance than Abe on coronavirus See in context

Abe vs Koike?

No thank you.

It is more beneficial for me to focus on people, the virus and think about what is best. Use the virus for social or

political posturing and/or grooming?

No thank you.

The incubation period is from 1-14 days.

If you look at the case map you can clearly see public transportation (shinkansen?) has been the virus' preferred mode of travel.

Stimulus Package ~

The government empowers the people and gives them fifty percent of a fine imposed on social distancing rule breakers.. 10,000 yen per head. Turn in a party of three and receive ¥15,000 = your 50% cut.

Golden ticket winners are snitchers who reveal closet covid-19 postive stow-aways.

This kind of approach could be quite effective

Stay well and safe.
