Posted in: Japan to keep hospital beds for severely ill; use hotels for mild coronavirus cases See in context

sometimes, the easy choice is not best choice, using hotels for mild symptom patients, what happens when the patients become seriously ill, when every second is critical ,

do you have time to move them to the hospital ? when is not single numbers but 1000s like New York,

hotels are for quarantine purposes, not for semi-hospital , unless they bring needed equipment to the hotels which is unlikely.

This why these critical decisions have to be made by the experts, not politicians or bureaucrats who knows nothing about patient care.

why are you foreigners ( i am a foreigner too ) fighting about wearing a mask? if i hear some idiot say mask don't help, i will.........

Now CDC is changing their tune about masks in U.S,

just wear the ....mask,and do the other necessary stuff to get your family safe and other folks safe too.

is that too hard? or you are going to fight this to the end, maybe your end,

Don’t mention California If you never put your foot in CA soil. Not everyone has big yard and pool Much be watching too much TV.

it’s not lock down, it’s shelter in place which mean you can walk around your neighborhood, walk your pet, go to super market or hospital

but you can not hangout in the park , beach which idiots were doing before police get involved

The politicians and JMA trying to spin is not working.

mass testing doesn’t mean you can just go there anytime you want. Even in Korea , you need to have been contacted with the infected or have underlying symptoms or visited a place where the infected stop over

yes It will put pressure on the hospital This is pandemic

this will be the biggest mistake by a Japanese government and JMA past 100 years

people mocked this photos in Sweden, but they got the job done, every country except Japan is following this country's lead, I don't need to mention the name of the country because it's very close from here, very close,

you two, wear a mask in the meetings so you can both be in the same place, at the same time,

no you guys are not batman and robin, not even close,

Posted in: Abe, Aso to avoid same meetings as precaution against virus infection See in context

why don't you wear masks in the meetings so that this kind of stuff don't happen here, avoid each other, if it's a critical meeting such as saving lives, maybe, just maybe , you guys need to think about the nation first , your safety second,

this is really a disgrace, i never saw this kind of comedy act anywhere, only in Japan, only in Japan,

Posted in: U.S. coronavirus death toll rises past 3,000 on deadliest day; New York governor begs for help See in context

that was last week news, you have anything new, now people getting fined.

also unlike other countries, states have much flexibility during this type of emergency situation,

they don't need to wait for Feds for testing kits or medical equipment, many states are not waiting for Feds,they are acting first.

yes, governors already know, they can not wait for the president,

don't worry about U.S, they started late,but is testing as many as possible, lock down in place, and is sending needed medical equipment to New York and rest of the states.

unlike Japan which has the capability but not doing anything now, i would be more worried about Japan than U.S

not testing is not a plan, it's form of stupidity

Look at Korea they test everyone. Even at the airport every passenger coming into the country is tested and monitored

but they don’t have lock Down . Shelter in place except Daegu

in Seoul, you can move freely but if you don’t wear mask, people will tell you or yell at you to wear one. They will probably give you one. You can get 2 masks a week from pharmacy there

so you idiots think you can go anywhere without a mask , like New York or Milan, think about how the virus is spread. It’s you talking. Sneezing coughing in public , leaving viruses on the surface.

masks don’t work. Ask Korea why test anybody everybody , why then they wear mask. Ask them.

Posted in: Japan to set up coronavirus task force; no state of emergency yet See in context

better late than never is for things not life threatening.

They could of made this beginning of the year,but we had Olympics back then.

They could make this 20 years ago after SARS but it would been waste of money and valuable resources.

so after 1000s of meetings, they came up with special task force group.

isn't this what typical Japanese companies do also, after many meetings, they must develop a " special task force team"

so what now, uh,,,,,,,

stay home,

keep away from other people including your own family

Mask helps both transmitting and stopping viruses. if you don't think so, just look at U.S , 100k now, not a mask culture there,

People in Japan and Korea have been a mask culture for long time , do you understand this in basic level, it doesn't take CDC , WHO to understand if you are sick, wear a mask so you dont spread whatever you have to other folks,

and wear mask, any sort of medical grade , doesn't have n95, n99 level, will block majority of viruses coming at you. yes, it's better than nothing.

ok, since you mentioned Korea, let's talk about them,

Korea was prepare from day 1, when Wuhan started, they the government, ramped up productions of test kits, or stopped all mask export, legal or illegal , They had experience from MER and has a special virus/disease Dept. /a minister level, ( not in Japan) to handling all future viruses such as SARS, MERS, and C19.

Also using their highly developed IT infrastructure and developing a mobile app to monitor infected people and also monitor their movements to other people and places they visited, using both locational app. and video surveillance , they, the government was able to track people's movement who they met, where they visited. This type of infrastructure can not be building in a year, they have been developing and refining this type of program past 20 years, after the SARS events. so all the positive comments about Korea's handling of this virus was not a great idea, quick turnaround, this is a 20 year program, they developed...20 years.

For now, the Japan,

do you think, they going to speed up testing because you ask them to or you screamed, i don't know if you know anything about this administration , they will not listen to anybody, they will not ask for help, they will not bend, they will not listen to their people, other countries, especially foreigners living in Japan.

They will handle this mess as they see it, do you think they really care about common folks, do you?

In fact that the bureaucrat is leading this fight against C19 tells you something, they don't want to hear from the experts,

they don't have special dept./minister level, virus/disease for past 20 years, they just made a special group now,

Japan has been very lucky because its mask culture and social distancing except in supermarkets but people behind was wearing masks

not like in US or Europe where they mock people wearing masks

who is the real idiots now.

Korea is a mask culture too but there numbers spiked up because of the cult group who didn’t practice social distancing but their numbers

so all of you who said wearing mask don’t work were dead wrong. I mean dead wrong

Posted in: Japan finds 15 clusters of coronavirus-infected people See in context

i don't know where I am anymore, is this really what Japan is all about?

is this what this administration has worked hard for past 10 years.

I see some of your comments and see the brainwashing and feel really bad/sad for ya.

This is not Japan pride, when you hide behind your corrupt and rotten culture,

this scenario feels like the movie " Wizard of Oz" more recently Rome or Spartacus dramas,and yes, history does repeat itself when corruption and deception is the guidelines for the ruling party.

I just feel bad for the common people for natives and foreigners who will be suffering the consequences

of your corrupted leaders and groups.

On this issue, i don't need to argue because i just feel so bad for you all. all of you.

the pot is boiling, you can not hold the lid any longer,

if and when you have these super active virus carriers in Japan, it can go from 50x , 100x matter of week and so on.

in pandemic world, there is no such thing as luck, you will not be lucky in Casino and you will not be lucky with this virus.

Posted in: Abe tells Trump Japan preparing for Tokyo Olympics as planned See in context

this tell me that this PM does not care for his people, like his father and other leaders before him, they really do not think of the common folks as human being, they see them as resource in time of peace and war.

people glorifies Samurai culture, if they really knew what Samurai did to the common people, they see them as resources also.

basically, he is playing God with people's lives here, to think about the Olympics before fighting this virus, it's a criminal

Now Trump is in trouble , shooting his mouth off, and not prepare for this virus thing spreading in U.S,

he needs a fall guy, well, his best buddy, PM, Whenever Trump is in trouble, he can count on the PM,

Posted in: SoftBank's Son criticized for offering free coronavirus tests See in context

once you are infected, the chance of survival improves on early stages of the infection period. longer a person waits, lower the chances for survival.

Maybe Mr. Son knows something already, there are 1000s of infected people but they can not get tested because of the red tape.

He offers free test for entire Japanese population and this is the reception he gets.

What if he was an American, what kind of reception would he get, if Bill Gates or Warren Buffet makes the same offer. ... I wonder. ....

Posted in: Abe requests event cancellations for 10 more days See in context

there are lots of expert comments today,

the problem is that this virus doesn't care who you are, countries, nationalities,

the problem does not go away, if you don't have aggressive testing, or slow testing.

so crossing your fingers and wishing will not help you.

longer you wait, those people with infection will be too far gone to recover.....
