"the number of deaths is still low"

Is it? Assuming it is, do you just wait until it is not, or you do something to keep it low?

@savethegaijin

had the same experience (different country). Not enough symptoms to get tested for Covid, but seen at the hospital, prescribed antibiotics.

STILL, I self isolated in a room, not interacted with children, wife and informed work that I might have Covid. It was enough to tell me to stay away from the office.

All symptoms gone away after 7 days, felt weird for next week and still do not know if I had it or not.

Bottom line, isolate yourself !

Let's agree that printing money is the absolute last resort for any government.

However, emergency packages like that should be designed to guarantee businesses in such a way that everyone's pay is not at stake, at least for a short period of time. Economies like Japan's should be able to do that as they have they resources - not sure about the planning regarding Japan.

Even economically beaten up Greece has provided relief packages for businesses and entrepreneurs, so that jobs will not be lost during the lockdown.

My wife says, even unemployment benefit is non existent ! Third world capitalism?

"The government does not and cannot have that guarantee."

I disagree. They can and they SHOULD

Nah, that would be tedious. How about odd months stand to the left, even months to the right.

The axis powers do not get war cemeteries in the nations they invaded and conquered. It isn't how things work.

There are such cemeteries but it is another matter who bears the cost of maintaining them. See: http://ww1cemeteries.com/other_cemeteries_ext/maleme_german_cem.htm

If the Japanese would want, they could have a cemetary in Guam that would provide for a final resting place for those soldiers perished there and they would serve as a reminder of the role of the Japanese Army in WW2. But they will not want that.
