Like NPD some people see children as extensions of themselves and not as individuals. Very sad, RIP

I worry this is giving people the notion that all is fine and go back to how things normally are, which is just asking for it. Japan loves OTT signs how about using sign more as reminders also use radio TV, internet, social media to remind peoplthat things are NOT back to normal.

Regarding kids going back to nursery and schools I just looked at the calendar the first of June is the Monday after next.... Surely keep them off until then makes sense not just another sudden change

This is why right or wrongly Jinc will be open for business next month I bet with some social distancing and hand sanitizers everywhere. They can’t bailout everyone and these firms are not too big to fail..

I don't think it's necessarily coronavirus to blame, as much as people want to. People who decide to commit suicide or are thinking of it had other issues way before suicidal thoughts.

You may be right but also your comment shows a lack of understanding regarding anxiety and stress. I am in no way condoning suicide but for people who have never been to the dark places in our minds due to anxiety, ptsd etc your comment Is a little simplistic and lacking knowledge of the human condition. Life can blindside you and often does.
