Posted in: 14 new coronavirus infections reported in Tokyo See in context

Although many persons have frustration against the success of Japan, it is about time to accept the reality. I thing that we do not need to worry about the novel virus so much.

Posted in: Suicide hotlines busy as coronavirus ravages economy See in context

However, the monthly suicide numbers of this year show the trend of decrease.

There is possibility that the suicide rate of Japan will become better than those of the U.S and Germany in this year.

Posted in: Coronavirus concerns overwhelming Japan's suicide hotlines See in context

The numbers of suicide for this year are as follows; (the last year ) 

January : 1,667 (1,684)

February : 1,434 (1,615)

March : 1,704 (1,856)

April : 1,455 (1,814)

Up to now, the number has decreased against the last year. However, if the effect of the novel virus continues, suicide may increase in the near future. The reason why suicide in April decreased significantly could be "stay home" orders. Because of not going to offices or schools, many people may feel peaceful.

Bullying is very bad problem, however, comparing with that poor people in U.K and U.S are easy to die during the novel virus, bullying is not so serious matter.

I think that Japan is very weak to the foreigners' pressures, therefore, if you have complaints to the Japanese government, the public demonstration may be very effective.

According to an article that I read today, Lee Yong Soo, a 91-year- old woman, told Yoon Mi Hyang, former head of the group, in the telephone conversation 30 years ago that Lee was not a comfort woman actually. If it is correct, both women have cheated many people for 30 years. I am not sure whether it is fake news or not.

The murder rate is about 1/5th the American rate,

It is incorrect. Murder rate per 100,000;

U.S.A 5.35

Japan 0.28

5.35/0.28 = 19

Although someone concerns only about Abe's comments, Mr. Honjo, a Immunologist and Nobel prize winner, also recommends the antivirus medicine including Avigan.

It seems that those who want the negative results of Avigan rushed to make comments. 

Presently, the clinical trails have been implemented in Japan and U.S. The result in Japan will be reported in early July, I think.   

Up to now, we found some reports and personal experiences which showed good results, however, we have to wait the final results for 2 months.

But Taiwan itself had the rule that their citizens except the medical staffs and the patients could purchase up to two masks per week in February. I think they used a mask for a few days at that time.

I think many Japanese change the masks so frequently. A mask should be used for a few days.

What a shameful incident !

Yesterday BBC ranked Japan as No.2 of the healthiest countries in 2019, however, Japan may move down to No. 4 or 5 in the 2020 ranking.

S.Korea and Taiwan have done the great jobs, because this is the second time for them to address the novel virus. The western countries and Japan are struggling due to the first time.

And the western countries and Japan cannot accept their system unfortunately, because of the human rights. The tracking system of the patients cannot be approved by the Japanese communist party and the other opposite parties absolutely.

There are so many tourists in Kamakura city today. Many Japanese still underestimate the virus.

I am sorry I can't say it exactly, however they are such people who said;

"Tokyo will be the next Wuhan" in February,

"Tokyo will be the next Italy" in March, and

"Tokyo will be the next N.Y." now with fun.

Everyone would like to criticize someone because of easing their frustration in this situation.

As usual, CNN, NYT and the other foreign media also criticized that the Japanese government's actions were too late, however, I would like them to watch their terrible situation carefully.

In Japan, if the death toll reaches to 1,000, it will become significant problem. We must avoid such situation by keeping the certain rules.

Posted in: Tokyo running out of beds and gear, medical staff say See in context

Many foreigners suspect the death toll, however, our favorite Dr. Iwata said it is difficult to hide the deaths caused by the novel virus because the pneumonia deaths with unknown cause are checked strictly. (This is his opinion, so, I'm not sure whether it's correct or not.)

And the supporting rate of Abe is about 40% and there are so many enemies to him in Japan, including the doctors and nurses. If hiding something, they are willing to post it in SNS. But we can't find it.

Japan has to avoid the below situation. The death toll of US may be much higher than the official report.

Mark D. Levine

It’s not just deaths in hospitals which are up. On an average day before this crisis there were 20-25 deaths at home in NYC. Now in the midst of this pandemic the number is 200-215. Every day.

If you feel danger, you should once evacuate from Japan to your countries after receiving JPY 300K.

I think that such report should be abolished in the near future, because it may generate racism. Foreigners helping Japan are very important. By the way, how about the other countries ? Do they make such report ?

Compared to Japanese criminals, both the numbers and percentages are significantly lower.

Like getting infected with the corona virus, I am more likely to be a victim if crime committed by a Japanese person than a foreigner.

Do you know the number of death toll by murder in Japan ? It's around 300 per year.

According to the article, 48 foreigners were investigated over murder. ( I'm not sure whether they were charged or not, finally.)

I think the number is not low.

Anyway, don't worry, foreigners in Japan.

Japan has the public livelihood assistance social aid system ultimately. More than 2 million people, including many foreigners, use the system.
