Zoom shares your data with Facebook. It's enough to have their app on smartphone without even using it.

Posted in: Japan to ask travelers from U.S. to self-quarantine for 14 days See in context

Are those people still fingerprinted one after another? Anyone from immigration disinfect after each person ? Or maybe is time to stop doing it at least for residents.

What would happen if I sprayed on it before use? Would I be in trouble ?

By the way, they asked for self isolation. Does this mean they are free to travel in public transport and then enter hotels or airbnb and then stay there?

Lies not only in Japan. Japan closed borders for S.Korea but maybe it should be the other way around.

Posted in: Coronavirus testing to be covered by national health insurance See in context

National Health Insurance is very good. It costs around 5000 yen.

Nothing to be proud of. You are either first year in Japan or have almost no income.

Posted in: Japan to ban entry by foreigners who have visited Daegu See in context

How about being fingerprinted at re-entry ? Will they suspend it due to risk someone in front of me with possibility of virus put his fingers on device ? They never wipe it out with anything. Is just next, next and so on? I guess they don’t care about it. What if someone refuse due to COVID19 concern?
