Now that's quite something. I remember in other countries doctors make that "Hippocratic oath" to help people all the time, in any situation. Guess Japanese doctors don't know that? Too bad!!
Maybe it got lost in translation and they thought it was the Hypocritical Oath?
Seriously though, Japan got its modern medicine from Germany, maybe the same ethical standards don't apply in Germany.

And this is what I mean by "cultist brainwash".
The only people complaining about an imagined "anti-white racism" are full-blown racists.
The far left spends all day, every day, complaining about white people. They call far right protests "white terrorism". They ask all white people to acknowledge their white privilege. They call for "decolonizing" everything from beauty products to cooking recipes and holidays. They say things about white people that nobody is allowed to say about 'BIPOC' people without being accused of racism. Entire sociology departments spend all of their time poring over facets of some sort of abstract 'whiteness' in new ways of breaking down this most oppressive of skin colors.
Tell me with a straight face that that's anything but race mania the likes of which we haven't seen since the heyday of eugenics.

But I do despise nazis and racists though.
The far left has become anti-white; tacit approval of them means being a racist sympathizer.

There will be healing and unity when two things happen:
There will be healing and unity only when the left also abandons its hateful and racist rhetoric. The fact that both left and right insist that intolerance has become a lopsided issue shows how much propaganda we have to cut through before arriving at the truth.

what would they say if it happened to their daughters...
Nice try, but what you really mean is "what would they say if their daughters did this?" And the answer is I'd punish her worse than the courts would.

That is an ironic comment inasmuch as the Democratic Party is widely viewed as being anti-business and anti-corporation. Most of my life all I have heard is this steady drumbeat from the Republican side about how bad Democrats are for business. So let's just say I see your comment as deflection absent any supporting evidence.
Dems are bad at business because they largely don't understand economics. Look at the Green New Deal, for example, or Biden's new multi-trillion-dollar covid plan.
It's like they think money grows on trees.

I just looked through Trump's speech transcript from the January 6th rally. I've found the part where he incited violence- here it is:
I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.
Shhhh! Get out of here with your facts!

I'm in the U.S. now and it's a totally failed state. No one believes in the institutions of the country anymore. No one wants the country to exist anymore. There's nothing left to be a traitor to. If they want to go after Trump and the rest that's fine. The place is finished. It's like hanging a traitor to Rome. Who cares? Rome fell a long time ago.
All of these issues would vanish overnight if our political parties stopped playing political theater and partisanship and instead governed according to the will of their constituents.
But no, we have a power-hungry billionaire class to protect.

"We want better ties with you Japan. But we're also going to remind you how racist, evil, and vile you are, how you should apologize again and compensate us for the comfort women, and erect statues in their honor in San Francisco and other places where you have no authority to remove them. But seriously though, better ties?"

Hopefully we will continue this progress and treat other major diseases such as malaria, etc. which are amenable to vaccines.
There's a reason that hasn't happened; hint: population control of poor people.

It is just Japanese have hard times psychologically using someone else's materials/equipment
Not just Japan, most of East Asia has this mindset too; buying second-hand until very recently was seen as being strictly for people below the poverty line. I remember many years back a Korean TKD teacher looked at my shoes in class, which were worn hard and showed it but weren't full of holes or falling apart, and he remarked how I needed new shoes. Everything always needs to look brand new for some people.

@deadbeatles, it's still a pathetic requirement. The Academy Awards are supposed to pick the best film, clearly they're no longer interested in that, which is why their ratings plummeted. A movie set in feudal Japan, or about the Zulu, or the Mexican Revolution, or King Henry VIII would be disqualified because they're not "diverse" enough.

So 2 of the most successful countries when it comes to controlling the covid spread are planning to establish travel bubble by April IF all goes well and there are no big outbreaks till then, but Japan thinks tens of thousands of visitors from all corners of the world ( and countries with various success record ) , unvaccinated , moving around Tokyo for the summer Olympic dream is absolutely fine.
