They didn't specify her nationality because she's obviously Japanese.
I thought that, also. They're so damn predictable, aren't they.

I don't think people would follow any kind of stronger SOE. You only have to look at the self centred behaviour of many these last two years.
Maybe we have to accept that there's nothing that can be done to stop covid spreading.

Thankfully it is winding down!
Just because you post a similar comment every day @sanjinnosebleed, it doesn't mean the virus will disappear any quicker.

It'll get restarted, cases of Coronavirus will go up, and foreigners will wrongly get the blame.

Love your posts. Keep stating those facts and condemning the crap Japan keeps churning out.

For being so welcoming, kind and open.
What goes around comes around in this case, I hope.

Awful news to wake up to.
Hopefully Iga Swiatek crushes her

Can't stand this Hayashi. An absolute chancer.

Even some of the usual suspects are bored by this now. Don’t blame them. Yaaaawn
Yet you're still posting. Weird

Thank you genesis! Only 17,000 odd tests. Deary me

I feel very much the same. Hopefully not very young people.

Down a bit anyway. Test numbers?
It's strange how those numbers aren't disclosed.
Too much hiding going on it seems.

Japan needs to grow up. Korea, too.

Well, I think location is irrelevant in this case @FizzBit
It's common courtesy, is it not? And anyway, people who come here to write that they 'don't wear a mask'-it just seems to be a way of making a point.
I don't understand that.

And as for masks they are here to stay in Japan forever. Japanese people just love them and wear then when driving the car alone, bicycling and walking in parks or even the mountains alone with no one around. They will never give them up.
How incredibly sad

JSDF and USFJ need to start conducting excercises in northeast Hokkaido. The only language that the current Russian government understands.
Yes, let's behave as badly as them...tut tut
-2 ( +6 / -8 )
Just 3000 troops drilling on the Northern territories. The JSDF could easily overwhelm the Russians and retake the islands. It’s now or never. What are they waiting for?
Oh God. Why would we want Japan to start behaving in a scummy way like Russia does?

While Japan, South Korea and Vietnam the number of cases increase too much, in Western nations the number of cases is falling.
> Why so?
I think it's due to higher levels of personal hygiene in the west compared to Asia?
That's the sort of nonsense I heard in reverse during the first variants of the virus.

What is the purpose of testing if 99.99999% of the population has no symptoms?
But that isn't the point. The purpose of mass testing is to gain insight into trends, to give scientists data to work with.
It isn't going to happen here, though. I've no idea why, but I suspect that it may be down to not losing face and appearing as an infected nation to the outside world.

I really don't see that happening here. Even with packed trains all the way through the pandemic the situation didn't even come close to what SK and Ger. has had.
Well of course not. Korea and Germany actually test, aren't ashamed to test, and aren't ashamed to report high infection numbers to the world.
Unlike our dearest Japanese hosts.

I love you Japan, coolest country of the World!!!..

Bow deeply? A smile, a hello and a handshake was perfectly fine for me. Later the same day I was washing dishes and serving beer to customers in the family yakitoriya.
It broke any ice and set me up for a lovely marriage.

so they dont think anything needs to be done. School continues / the spread continues.
You've hit the nail on the head there. Same where I was working yesterday in a high school, but with no open windows. There is a stupid widespread belief that people can't get sick here if they wear a mask..
