Cool beans, i heard the virus will go away in summer... just hang in there. Don't forget to wear a mask if you are sick. If you are not sick, stop wasting time wearing 'em and leave 'em for those who needs it.

Nope, wearing a mask won't protect 100% against the virus.

Anything else?

Posted in: Abe's abrupt call to close schools triggers confusion See in context

If she is a grade school teacher, perhaps she should investigate a direct hire gig. Even part time teachers get a set salary for 12 months and a small bonus.

She is an assistante teacher in junior high school. She got 2 bonus per year. She is paying per hours. No work = no money.

If you are not sick, wearing a mask is useless.

Posted in: Japan announces basic policy to fight spread of coronavirus See in context

A daughter of a friend of mine went to the hospital with a fever of 38.8C, they had her leave the hospital and go to another that is designated as one to deal with the virus.

She was given a blood test and they gave her an anesthetic to her throat and took a throat swap as well, testing for the virus! 

She had mild food poisoning!

WOW, That's some crazy story right here....
