Swiftly? I have not even received an application to apply for the first payment they promised. The only swift thing they have done is raise our taxes last year.

As for the application they are not sent yet. Refer to this


Also keep in mind that now each member of parliament will now get a 3 million yen bonus

Depends on your city, smaller cities faster to distribute, larger cities might take longer. Someone in Ome Tokyo might get it faster then someone in Shinjuku Tokyo, or someone in inaka town might get it faster than any city in Tokyo.

Thank you Badge, I have not gotten any concise dates on english news site, just most leaning that it will be sent in mail in May. I am in Shinagawa. Appreciate it

So.. St. Luke's is busy, but not necessarily ALL hospitals like the headline infers. And seriously.. 8 beds in the ICU there and you're surprised it's maxed out?

I agree with AgentX

Eight ITU beds! Only eight! WTF? A hospital like St Luke’s only having eight ITU beds is appalling.

Even in the time before corona, this would be scandalous - now it’’s sheer negligence.

St Likes has Several Critical Care Sections in the hospital the Cardio Care Unit has around 50 beds which were almost full pre COVID19.

As the quality of service is so high and reliable compared to other hospitals very reliable and modern compared to other hospitals in town like Hiroo, which I would I not recommend their ICU at all. I was lucky to get a room in St Lukes ICU as the demand is so high to get in. All ICU rooms are private and most staff speak english. They have more the 8 ICU beds (and applies to most hospitals in Japan), but they cant kick out current ICU patients who need care. And most of the floor I was on, most of the patients on my floor really looked frail and needed Critical Care.

They have a dedicated Infectious disease center who are very thorough, sometimes over thorough when they check your case. And Dr Sakamoto is very level headed and down to earth person in handing things when I met her. Far better than 2 other hospitals I was at last year before St Lukes.

AgentXToday/TomToday/LudditeToday assumptions arent facts.
