He died at hospital. Seems he had a chronic disease(持病), whatever that was, perhaps cardiovascular related, which probably made it difficult to fight the virus.

I live in Nagoya and read about this. The interesting thing was that the girl he was in direct contact with (sitting next to) tested negative for the virus while a girl who sat down on the waiting seat 30 minutes after he had been seated there contracted the virus.

I'll never forget watching Spartacus for the first time as a kid on TV. An amazing movie that inspired me.

I wish society would create a fitting punishment for this type of crime. Poor kids.

I doubt very much he was physically abusive to his daughter after looking at the photos on the other website. They seem happy well-adjusted kids. I've known many fathers here who lost contact with their kids and it is so sad. Japan really needs to give rights to the fathers to see their kids. I wish him luck but can't help but feel the system will crush him.

Such a cheap move. It reeks of desperation.

I can't really blame him for running. The Japanese judicial system procrastinated for over a year. How much longer did the prosecution need? He obviously tried to defend himself at the beginning but how long should a man wait in confinement if he has an exit plan? I look forward to reading the interview or perhaps the book that sheds more light on his side of the story.

I'm looking to buy a car at the moment. Damned if I will buy Nissan.
