Japan it’s no more a foreign problem. It’s a local one one. The community spread of infection is in full swing now. The rising number of daily infections and over 60 infections in one facility in Chiba is enough evidence.
However, as usual the politicians will make it look like a foreign problem to cover their bad decisions.
Of these, 1032 Japanese citizens accounted for 56.7%, and foreigners accounted for 43.3%.
Can you please share the source as well?

As the Olympics are gone let’s show our face to public and get some votes by acting tough and portray that we are doing something.
it’s too little too late. Japan is still complacent and the Govt’s current action is saving face and setting grounds to start blaming the public for the spread.

"This incident is really regrettable and shouldn't have happened," Health Minister Katsunobu Kato said at a press conference.
Can’t Abe find one competent person for his cabinet? This genius after spreading corona by his stupid decisions will soon be “urging” and “blaming” people for not following the “urges”.

"I told Prime Minister Abe there is a high risk of coronavirus spreading widely," Health Minister Katsunobu Kato told reporters after a meeting Shinzo Abe and Economy Minister Yasutoshi Nishimura.
Isnt he he same guy who few days ago arrogantly said that having testing capacity doesn’t mean we have to use it, they are monitoring the clusters carefully and there’s no widespread infection.
What a team of crooks

I tried to get some information about the situation in Japan, and apparently Japanese Govt has more information on their website about China than Japan. The numbers here are so odd and weird I cannot trust them even when I want to.

The Chinese company benefitting from the sales of kits is partners with Japanese company importing it and most probably the Japanese partner will make a lot more money than Chinese.

There is a “small possibility” of scattered cases that will create small clusters in communities after passengers return, said Norio Ohmagari, an infectious diseases expert at the National Center for Global Health and Medicine. "So I'd like to call upon all the travelers who disembarked from the ship ... to report to the authorities as soon as possible" if they develop any symptoms, he said. “By doing that, we can prevent another cluster from happening.”
one paragraph summing up incompetence, deception, avoiding responsibility and lack of empathy for the general populace by one of the many good for nothing connected bureaucrat.

Please try to remember that Japanese Gov. didn't create this problem. It's easy to blame Japan for their response, but there are many people doing their best to come up with a cure.
True, the virus wasn’t created by Japanese government but this situation is created by the stupidity of Japanese government.
