Is getting an education worth the risk? Even though children might only exhibit mild symptoms or none at all, how about teachers and parents? It's a shame that the economy and education trumps people's health and well-being. It's the world we were born in.

As of now, they have tested 111,325 people so far. 10,439 tested positive. Of those, 1069 have recovered and 222 dead. It's impossible for this so-called state of emergency to end on May 6.
By the way, a 30 year old male in Saitama died of COVID-19 on April 14. No mention if he had any pre-existing condition. I believe he is the youngest person to die from this virus in Japan.

46.6 billion yen is a waste of taxpayer's hard earn money. I'm returning mine with a note "Don't waste tax payers' money."
They should have had an online request system for people to order the mask if they need them. I haven't spoke to any one thrilled about getting these masks.
I wonder what company is earning this money to make these masks. The government should reveal that information. I'm sure it would reveal political connections.

I'm sending the masks I receive back to the government with a note asking to not waste tax payers' money. Masks should only be sent by requests from citizens.

200 yen a mask? If they bought 50 million masks, there is no way they would costs 200 yen a piece. What company is making these masks, so I can buy some of their stock?

Return to sender.
They should just send them to families that request them.

Bars and night clubs are as busy as ever. The train will get more congested if they allow students to return to school next week as planned. These past 3 months, Japan could have done more to prepare, but they were focused on saving the Olympics. Now, they are focused on saving the economy.

I know students that came back from Europe last week and we'ret tested at KIX or asked to self quarantine. Japan is going to end up being the worst hit country by COVID-19 if they keep dragging their feet.

With one professional basketball playee, Rudy Gobert, testing positive for Covid-19 resulting in the NBA season shutting down, I'm sure professional athletes making millions won't risk coming to Japan.
It's best to find a way to postpone the Olympics until 2021. I hope that's possible for Japan's sake.
