I would be more stressed sending my kids to school and mix up with kids during the pandemic.

Parenthood is all about giving up almost everything for the well being of kids.

Posted in: No. of coronavirus infections in Japan passes 1,000 See in context

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.

*"It's a problem that's happened every 40 years - it's the cursed Olympics - and that's a fact," Taro Aso, who also serves as deputy prime minister, said in a parliamentary committee on Wednesday.*

Is this how Japanese ruling party gathers facts for decision making?

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.

In summary the Government will make laws to control people more by telling them if they can get out of home or not and find ways to spend money on their friend’s companies.

The purpose of the quarantine was to protect Japan not to protect the people on the Ship.

and yet still failed again

Posted in: Gov't panel, responding to criticism, says cruise ship not designed to be hospital See in context

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.

Posted in: Japan confirms 14 more virus cases; school to be closed for 2 days See in context

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.

Posted in: Japan confirms 14 more virus cases; school to be closed for 2 days See in context

So first Japan brings everyone from Wuhan and doesn’t quarantine them properly and lets them go back to their homes on public transport, they spread the virus on their way home and in homes, then comes Diamond Princess and the process is repeated with the evacuees and these brainless bureaucracy and politicians are still urging the companies to adapt telework and just closing the school for two days for what rationale?

I cannot phrase my thoughts about this sheer incompetence without violating the posting guidelines

Posted in: New train route eyed between Haneda airport and Tokyo Disney resorts See in context

Sounds like a great idea but JR adding more lines to existing network is really taking its toll on the commuters. The average daily delay in the morning is now around 13 minutes for some of the major lines running into Tokyo.

Congratulations to them.

But the amount of coverage this guy gets on media is surprising. The only reason I see is he’s son of a prime minister. In modern democracies dynastic politics is frowned upon but yes I am not Japanese so I won’t understand.

Posted in: Japan pursues regional diplomacy to defuse Gulf tensions See in context

Japan IMO isn’t doing anything to diffuse anything but situation at home after Ghosn’s escape and the latest corruption scandal.

Dear leader actually cancelled his tour when the situation was tense and resumed after tensions deescalated. However the local media as usual is portraying Abe like a champion diplomat averting Third World War.
