Posted in: Tokyo reports 339 more virus cases; 1,152 nationwide See in context

the new corona virus is so deadly that it killed less than2% of infected persons who are mostly frail, with underlying conditions, of advanced age. I'm shivering in fear especially when 90% of infected don't even have any symptoms, not even a runny nose .yikes so deadly

Common measles killed around 2.5M every year until a vaccine came yet we never heard of measles pandemic. Even with the present age, people are dying from TB, around 1.5M people a year even with vaccines yet people are not really hiding.

When a person yells "fire" in the theater, he will be arrested for causing panic if there is no real fire. When a corona virus is causing 90% people infected showing no symptoms, 98% recovers, and only 1 -2 % having complications and the "media" starts saying the virus is the deadliest ever known and that we should all lockdown, sacrifice the economy, ruin companies, destroys children's education, caused panic and hysteria, severe mental health depression, destroys the very fabric of our society I think this is the height of irresponsibility.

Again, if you are afraid, go hide, shut your doors, live in isolated islands or similar, We like to have a sense of life. We have enough of your panic.

New corona Virus deadly? get real. Try ebola and marburg. Then you will know what a real deadly virus looks like.

Posted in: There are many people who don't know anything about the war, not only the suffering of the Japanese people, but there are also things that Japanese people did, bad things. Unless we teach these things to future generations, I don't think wars will end. See in context

Tangerine2000...it was the action of Gen Douglas McArthur that led to the atrocities. Gen Yamashita is going to move his troops out of Manila to make his final stand along Lingayen gulf but McArthur cordoned the whole city and started bombing the hell out of Manila. The Japanese troops with everything to lose started to kill their prisoners. The bloodshed could have been avoided but Yes go ahead love your Americans.

Just a note, after Philippines was destroyed to the ashes, the Americans wanting not to extend money to rebuilt the Philippines decide to declare independence and therefore those people who risk their lives protecting the Americans who came and subjugated the country got nothing.

Yes, the Japanese Imperial Army were brutal, but the Americans were demons. Why don't you read Pork Chop hills, Agent Orange and how the US massacred hundreds of thousands of civilians just because they were bloodthirsty,

Of course how could it be controversial my friend, Americans are blood thirsty people. And the truth is the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombing did not force the Japan govt to surrender. it was the Russian army that forced the Japan govt to surrender.

There was never an excuse to kill civilians deliberately, recklessly, and wantonly in war and peace.

When the Japanese entered Manila city, no fire was shot but how come Manila city was the 2nd most bombed city in WWI after Berlin? You know who did it.

War will never end. It has some value to the person sharing his/her experience but it does really nothing in preventing wars. But yes I agree that the Japanese Imperial army was brutal but Americans were simply demons,

"US Air Force general Curtis LeMay, the man who ordered the raids across Japan, once said the US military "scorched and boiled and baked to death more people in Tokyo on that night than Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined".

He acknowledged that if he had been on the losing side, he would be charged with war crimes.

And the evidence lies deep in the vaults of a memorial in central Tokyo, where large urns contain the ashes of more than 100,000 civilians."

And US is still waging wars all over the plane.

Posted in: No matter how much you tout the Olympic Games as a sign of recovery, the overall picture of only Tokyo prospering while the recovery of the disaster-hit areas in the Tohoku region remains undone will not change. I've been to Tokyo many times, and saw that there were more crane trucks at the construction site of the athletes' village than in the disaster-hit areas. It was obvious at a glance where the national government was placing its resources. See in context

Tokyo is spending its money on Tokyo Olympics..i don't see any problem.

Besides Tohoku people are so fragmented, the central govt wants to relocate the people near the coastal areas into the highland but some people wants to rebuild near the coast while others wants to move to the hilly areas so construction for rehabilitation is not moving. Inaka people are troublesome to deal with.

Posted in: Pandemic's economic fallout will worsen conflicts: U.N. diplomats See in context

who cares about these conflicts, who cares about poverty, homelessness, hunger as a direct result of fear from covid? Let's lockdown because Covid-19 is so dangerous that is killing less than 2% of infected people whom mostly obese, unhealthy, immunocompromised, with underlying heart conditions. Virus is the new front of govt control. We had communism, then terrorism, then global warming, to keep the fear out of the stupid masses but the virus???perfect, everybody is so informed that they don't know what is a real dangerous one. Ebola and Marburg kills 80%. Even an Asian hornet killed about 50 Million people but yeah go and hide because the virus is coming to get you and give you a runny nose.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 292 new coronavirus cases See in context

My friends whole family had the virus, the only symptoms they had was one day fever, yeah so deadly that they are now back to work after 2 weeks. So does our neighbor, Grandparents, family, and 2nd grader son (5 in all) had been positive, no symptoms but quarantined for 14 days but yes, they have again opened their convenient store and as genki as ever ..so deadly huh? I am shivering in fear. 90% symptomless, 99% recovers, most people who die are people who are unhealthy (uncontrolled diabetes, severe obesity, compromised immune systems like leukemia but please let us not mention that they are also prone to be severely affected by other bacteria, virus, and fungi because it will diminish the fear to the Covid-19). If you are young, healthy, take care, and take all the necessary precautions but go live your lives. Fear is ok, paranoia is not.

Posted in: Why COVID-19 is killing U.S. diabetes patients at alarming rates See in context

as i have stated before in my other post, this virus is causing an uncontrolled auto-immune response targeting the ace2 (angiotensin converting enzyme) responsible for proper blood pressure management and these receptors are found primarily in the lungs and blood vessels resulting to blood clots and thrombi being lodged into the peripheral blood vessels causing diminished blood circulation and necrosis. A healthy person is generally safe but an uncontrolled diabetic or obese person has one big problem, the body has more than enough supply of blood sugar which increases the ability of the virus to multiply rapidly. To add to the problem are the fat cells where the virus hide and continuously infects the body for a prolonged period of time. Of course it is not a rare phenomenon for virus to hide so it can survive, just look at HIV, herpes, Marburg virus and many more.

So A diabetic person has already compromised blood vessels (fats accumulating on the blood vessel walls because of too much sugar), and with that there is diminished blood flow, increased blood sugar slows down the immune system (yes, the body killer cells are slow and not functioning properly for diabetic persons) and of course heart diseases. Most people with uncontrolled diabetes have high blood pressure and are at risk of congestive heart failure and stroke. The virus multiplies faster with high sugar. and hides in fat cells so the virus life is prolonged and the person infected has no ability to kill the virus because the immune system is compromised.

This is not a puzzle.

Posted in: Tokyo reports single-day record of 366 new coronavirus infections See in context

again 90% of infected people symptomless, 99% recovers, and the 1% have complications and mortality. But the mortality rate is often associated with other underlying factors such as diabetes and obesity. Yes, a person who is infected and have uncontrolled blood sugar usually increases their morbidity by 37%. Others have cancer, weak immune response, suffering from various illness and so on.

Lets face the facts, this virus is no more deadlier than a common flu. It simply like fat people because the virus likes the angiotensin converting enzyme 2 which is available in much abundance in the lungs of fat people.

People who die, dies and people survive survives. Life goes on. Those who wants lock down, no one is forcing you to go out. By all means go and lock yourselves. But we know you will not be happy because other people are living their lives the way it is and so you want them to suffer as well. So you want is to lock up ourselves to share your misery.

The virus was here before we became humans, and it still here , Another deadlier mutation will occur again and again and again. Nature kills humanity, humanity destroys nature, Its a give and take, We all die, might as well live productive lives.

We all die, one way or the other. But there is foolishness in believing something to be worse than what really is. 90% symptomless, 99% survival rate; it is what really is. FEAR.

Posted in: Tokyo reports single-day record of 366 new coronavirus infections See in context

About 50,000 died in the US because of Covid...and about 80,000 died because of flu in 2017, The US experts said 1.7 M people are going to die..then the numbers didn't add up so they changed into very deadly to deadly to..symptomless. Yes. we should be very afraid of a symptomless virus that does nothing to 90% of infected people and cause less than 1% death. But of course, FEAR is a factor that can be used to prime up the TV ratings, make the media important, make the government more relevant and give them more control. It is not about the virus, it is to test the extent of government power among its constituents. We had the communism, but when the threat failed, the govt came up with terrorism, and then global warming, now the COVID.

It is not about the virus. It is about control and power.

BTW, the CDC in the US is now considering Covid as non-epidemic.
