This would be a nice time for France to bring the guillotine back.

Many ( most? ) foreigners don’t stay very long in Japan. Some like me were transferred here, some are the spouses of those working here, others do working holidays etc. Some have just arrived.

How quickly did you master Japanese?

It doesn't matter for how long or why someone's staying here. It's the responsibility of the the guest to adapt to their host country, even if it's for a short period of time. Knowing basic phrases of the local lingo will go a long way anywhere in the world and btw it took me about half a year to get consersational, why?

How long do you have to have been here to even read PCR検査自己負担. let alone search for it?

And what percentage of foreigners here in Japan have been here that long?

You don't have to know complicated kanji, as long as you know basic conversational Japanese you can always call your local 市役所 or hospital and they will point you in the right direction.

As a foreigner, unless it's a family member or a close friend, the best is do nothing and mind your own business. You'll end up arrested or worse.
