Posted in: Abe cautious about declaring emergency despite spike in virus cases See in context

What you have to understand that although many people recognize the long life span of Japanese, thinking that we may be doing the necessary things to stay healthy, over 36% of the population are 65 and older. That's a big chunk of people. We have enough beds in Japan about 1 bed per 1000. That's more than anyone in the world, BUT... We lack the medical staff and equipment for a large scale pandemic. That's the most concerning thing. We may seem technologically advanced, but many companies are still using desktops instead of laptops for their workers and there is not enough time/funds for many of these smaller companies to adjust.
