Posted in: Coronavirus crisis sparks calls for revamping Japan's school year See in context

Why is there a need to change? Not every country starts the school year in September, so it’s not an international standard. Also students have been able to study at home during this period. A lot of children do homeschooling, which is accepted in many countries.

Hopefully he will not be treated like a rich celebrity and he learns that a husband should never hit his wife. I don’t understand how most people think this is acceptable on this site.

Posted in: Has Japan dodged the coronavirus bullet? See in context

Apparently there has not been a lot of testing in Japan. Why do they need to test everyone? I read about a nurse in America who requested to be tested and was refused multiple times. She later died. So I guess other countries aren’t doing the testing perfectly either.

A lot of people predicted mass deaths like America. It doesn’t seem to have happened. I guess those are the people saying the state of emergency should continue.

I guess you think she should have gotten off. She killed two kids.

Posted in: People return to work under extended emergency after Golden Week See in context

Many people are saying that Japanese people aren’t following the state of emergency. But then one comment mentions that every seat on my train was taken. Must be many foreigners commuting to work on crowded trains too.

Posted in: Abe to consider starting academic year in September See in context

Actually a lot of countries don’t start school in September. Why are people saying this is international standard?

It looks like Japan is doing much better than America. But I’m sure people will continue to say, let’s do what they are doing in America.

Posted in: Seiyu to pay special bonus to store staff working during pandemic See in context

Actually the payment is 15,000 Japanese Yen. I don’t think they will be paid in dollars. I guess foreign money is difficult for some posters.

A very balanced article compared to the people leaving comments. I wish they would read the article instead of jumping to the comments section. They might actually learn something.

Posted in: Governors call for Golden Week travel curbs, compensation for business suspensions See in context

Actually a lot of people are following the guidelines as best they can. Have to laugh at all the comments on here from experts telling people to stay at home when they also say they leave their house too.

Posted in: Japan extends calls to avoid nightclubs, bars to all prefectures See in context

The government is giving 300,000 yen to people with reduced incomes. I think the workers at these places will be happy to stay at home for that.

Posted in: Trains run as usual, some retailers shorten hours during state of emergency See in context

So the fact is that parks were closed because people were ignoring the lockdown. Thanks for confirming my post.

I think that Japan is doing a good job with controlling the spread. Most people in Japan seem to be following the advice. In most other countries people are ignoring the lockdown and going out as usual. I have read that the parks in England had to be closed because a lot of people went to the park on the weekend. Also in France they had to ban outdoor exercise during the day for the same reason.

Everyone please remember every country is different. The government has more information than posters on a news website.

Posted in: Japan not planning to declare state of emergency but will expand entry bans See in context

I think people should trust the government. They are making the best decisions for the citizens of Japan. Every country is unique. Also people in other countries are ignoring the supposed lockdowns anyway, so there is no need for one in Japan.

Maybe the Japanese wife had a right to be afraid. A husband killed his wife at the court last year in Tokyo. He was in the same situation.
