Posted in: 2-hour virus test to be available at Narita airport See in context

It's a sure way to bring back the hoards of tourist to Japan only the rich will pay that price.

Hopefully US airlines will offer a cheaper testing alternative in Japan.

In the US it's $100 -200 with some carriers, drug stores and free with medical insurance.

United and Hawaiian have tests available at some airports.

Once they postpone the Olypmics the Japanese government can concentrate on the virus, Finally.

They will kindly ask people to stay home.

And kindly ask event organizers to be careful.

And kindly ask if your fever is only for a day or two to come back later.

It's because Japanese politicians have no bols.
