Posted in: Workers, parents feel strain as state of emergency extended See in context

bottom line is that Japan was not prepared, is prepared and will not be prepared with current PM Abe group.

who knows what's coming next,

is Japan prepare for next virus ?

ask yourself, you commentators been here many years as I am, although I started the comments again in past February with the cruise ship mess.

simple question, look at the countries who has been somewhat successful against this virus, what are they doing that Japan is not,

handing out these cotton mask is not one of the bright ideas, I rather wear my scarf which cover more areas of my face.

PM Abe saw what happen to China and South Korea when they are #1,2 in infection numbers , he had a front row seat , what those countries were struggling with which is same thing Japan is struggling now. not enough masks, medical equipment, lack of ICU, Korea ramped up testing with zero barrier so any companies who made the kits went overdrive manufacturing the kits.

if you had a 4 month ahead start, you need to do things right, not make the same mistakes over and over again.

who are these experts, are they the same experts who predicted hot summer will naturally kill the virus?

or we don't need masks at all even going outside, we are fine with washing our hands only,

now, we need have masks on all time outside, anything scarf, ski masks, homemade masks,

this virus will stay with us for while?

Don't take Advil, take Tylenol

what the heck, where did you get your degrees I wonder,

i am talking about Japan,

you are comparing to New York, how about South Korea?

when you test many as possible, and separate the infected vs non-infected,

and trace all the other possible infection, Korea results happens,

it's not Gestapo tactics, there is no name or other vital information open to the public,

If Japan is suppose to be the leader in Asia, act like one, instead trying to make excuses,

you and Abe are the same, always making excuses,

this is 100% fault of PM Abe, this guy had so many chances to control this virus

it's easy for him to say, stay home, close your businesses, close schools,

He didn't do his job by increasing testing capabilities in Japan, setting up testing outside of clinics and hospitals,

This guy is so inadequate for the job, he will be one of the worst PM in history of Japan.

Posted in: ICU doctor expects long battle against coronavirus See in context

both the government and the medical establishment are fault here,

doctors, nurses , medical staff including ambulance staff is on the front line of fighting this virus.

Unfortunately, due to incompetence of both the government and the medical establishment,

these brave people have to deal with this virus with less than adequate materials/equipment,

yes, they should be worried.

the medical system in those rural areas are bare minimum.

sometimes, people need to think about others, this is the time.

do you really need to go vacation during this pandemic ?

if you miss one golden week, is it so terrible.

these people need to wear " I am with stupid" t shirts

Posted in: Cases of patients turned away by hospitals up fivefold over virus See in context

as some of you said, hospitals have been not accepting patients for past 20 years, that might be true but this is pandemic which no one has ever seem or experienced before in our life time.

earthquake and tsunami end,this virus does not end, don't know when it will disappear .

so i don't accept that excuse of turning away patients. this blame goes directly to current PM Abe group and the old medical groups.

this is fundamental problem of PM Abe, instead of preparation, it's 100% reaction.

instead of applying best practices, it's fumbling, bumbling, and staggering actions.

Where organization and preparation has been key to Japanese culture, i don't see any here from PM Abe

so when your father is PM,and you get to be PM, had a silver spoon life, this is what happens when

elite becomes a politician, they don't know or understand the common people,

when you never earn a honest Yen in your life, or actually studied anything valuable this is what happens

i hope this costly lesson will awake up common folks to get involved in politics and at least vote...

Softbank always took the lead, other companies should follow since government is not doing anything about increasing testing any time soon.

Posted in: Cases of patients turned away by hospitals up fivefold over virus See in context

some of your trying to spin this story again,again,

this story is about patients being turn away from the hospital ,

the main problem is that Japan has no protocol ( did some say Sweden and Japan set up protocols)

This is were the government and hospital are not on one page,

they don't know what either is doing or don't want to coordinate between them.

why you trying to spin this story?

Japan is not a third world country, no patient should be turn away from hospitals,

this is real shame,

Posted in: Coronavirus infections spread rapidly among Japan's police See in context

they need to have regular c19 test for every law enforcement officers, these guys are at most risk since they not only talk to the public, they have to actually be physical in contact with drunks, criminals,

I don't see them wearing anything special except masks, their uniform is the same, at least, need to wear some sort of gloves , not cotton ones, disposal gloves,

Japan is so unprepared in many ways, it's hard to point to one area.

Posted in: 300,000 masks sent to pregnant women may be faulty See in context

why outsource , you can ask Uniqlo to make medical masks, supply them with need materials.

or just buy from Sharp directly, what the h.... are you doing PM Abe,

This is not rocket science, if you let Sharp make masks, you need to tell them , portion of the masks need to go to the government and distribute it to the people.

why this all the clowning around when people lives are stake,

wow, why did you go to school? or be in politics , it's just looking good, going to parties and events,

there are actual work, hard decision/ lift/death decisions you have to make.

Posted in: On Japan's stretched frontline, doctors and nurses face long fight against coronavirus See in context

so when you have this type of administration , this is what happens in pandemic

first deny that they have a problem,

second, they have everything under control

third, they are doing everything possible, shortage of medical masks, medical equipment for hospital staff, equipment for ICU, testing kits, and 1000s more.

fourth, they are doing things special for their people ( free masks)

fifth, they are asking people to sacrifice for good of the country , stay home

finally, if you are sick, best of luck to you. hope you can find a hospital,

did some idiot just say Japan is doing a good job?

good job for what?

using tax payer money to buy defected masks from your friends, making your friends rich and giving rest of us a dirty masks.

people with virus waiting to get tested but they are dead from waiting too long.

still waiting too long, too difficult to get tested.

can't find any good masks anywhere,

if your neighbor is doing a good job and it's about saving lives,

stop your samurai pride, and follow whoever is doing a good job,

is this simple enough for you to understand!

yes, old school folks,

this is what happens when pandemic or natural disaster happens, and business has to still operate,

if you are still doing paper and scissors , how do you compete with global companies ?

oh i forget, we are in Japan, we do everything Japanese way, only way, no way. no how.

Posted in: Japan faces bed shortage in ICUs if pandemic peaks: study See in context

you want to not burden ICU, test now and test early so that infected know who they are and they are quarantined according to their condition.

outside testing facilities are only way to go, building 1000s now, get private companies involved with incentives, go buy more testing kits,

yes, you need to make a call PM Abe, i use the word, PM very loosely , even Trump called Korea to get testing kits,

yes, it's not easy things to call President Moon, but you need to do this for your people,

unless you are so proud and willing to let 1000s die.

Is this guy joking? anywhere except for Japan, this guy would be impeached and kick out of the office .

Unfortunately, it is not true. The US elected a conman reality TV star to the presidency.

at least, entertainer didn't ripped of his people by selling them defected masks , whole world now know how crooked this guy is so don't deny it.

it's useless complaining about these types of places, do you think they , the business cares if you live or die, all they want is your money, they don't care about you or their employees.

as long as money comes in, they really don't care about people dying.
