Why? The government and the media is encouraging people to go out and spend. Why is he being needlessly seeked out, while 'talents' and politicians get a pass?

Posted in: Mother arrested after death of 3-month-old daughter left alone for 16 hours See in context

It seems strange that a three month old would die after only 16 hours alone. Something is missing here.

Obviously you don't have a child. A three month old baby need constant care and attention (fed, changed, hydrated) every few hours. I would suspect that she didn't even leave the aircon on for the child, but either way, they child would dehydrate pretty quickly this time of year

Posted in: Why have no COVID-19 clusters occurred in pachinko parlors? See in context

The reason why "no COVID-19 clusters occurred in pachinko parlors" (smh) is because those who frequent these places and get infected by the covid are too embarrassed to say where they have been. I am sure that there are plenty of people who have been infected from going to these places.

Stupid and irresponsible! Probably out carousing with some guy. The least she could have done was to get a babysitter

Just a few weeks ago we were told to "stay home", and now we are being told "go to travel"...this is so irresponsible, especially on a day when Tokyo recorded over 300 new infected.

Why is the government putting so much importance on this industry??? They are a public health risk because they are not taking proper precautions in protecting their employees and customers so why are they allowed to stay open? And we should definitely not have to pay to bail them out. If they go bankrupt, the industry won't die. New establishments will rise up from the ashes and hopefully they'll learn to take this virus more seriously!

She made a natural choice to leave her baby when she could not do it herself.

And then she went on to have two more kids. How do you think her daughter would feel if she new that her mother abandoned her, but raised two boys. No...she gave up her chance. She needs to leave the girl alone to live hew own life...that is...unless the girl seeks her out.

Why is the Government going to give free money - our taxes - to this incidious industry?

Totally agree. If these clubs are unable or unwilling to operate without taking proper precautions against covid19, they should be shut down - and we should not be on the hook for keeping them afloat!

This is an unedited manuscript that has been accepted for publication. Nature Research are providing this early version of the manuscript as a service to our authors and readers. The manuscript will undergo copyediting, typesetting and a proof review before it is published in its final form. Please note that during the production process errors may be discovered which could affect the content, and all legal disclaimers apply.

By the way, not to troll you or anything, but you might want to read the disclaimer at the top of the article you linked earlier (see above). It implies that the article is still in the draft stages and still needs to be proofed.

And, that one line that you "cherry picked", and framed your whole argument around -you know, this one:

Of the 234 children in the study population, none ended up infected by the virus, even though some of them shared a house with an infected individual.

Well, this doesn't seem to exist anymore. Hun..strange...as a matter of fact, looks like the article is very different from the one you quoted, so perhaps you should have read the disclaimer before quoting it.

Oh, and one more thing:

By the way, there were 28,000-111,500 deaths in children younger than 5 years attributable to influenza-associated ALRI (acute lower respiratory infections) in 2008, with 99% of these deaths occurring in developing countries. Just to put things in perpective for people like you who can't bother checking the science.

And....?

Not sure what this has to do with anything. This is about influenza...I thought we were talking about covid19...you do know that they are unrelated right?

> Concerning the French article, I was not expecting you to read it. I gave it as a reference. Even in English you wouldn’t understand it anyway.

So you posted two links to articles, one in a language that I don't understand because I don't read French (not too well anyways ). For all I know, the French article could've been talking about puppies, so why even post it? Seems like you just want to cite anything to prove a moot point, and did so unsuccessfully. Try finding an article that we can all read next time.

Did you read the article?

Yes, i read the English article, and as I said, it's practically anecdotal because its a small case study with a small sampling, in a single area with people who most likely have similar DNA makeups. In order for this to be a more "scientific" study, it would have to have been conducted with larger sampling, stretching multiple countries and or more ethnicities (a more diverse DNA sampling). Otherwise, the result of the study is only relevant to the people of that small town.

Well nothing because you are not qualified to give an opinion here.

Well if you are saying that I am not expert, then you are right. I don't know a lot about viruses per se, but I do work for a genetic research company that studies and tests for covid19. I talk to the REAL experts on a daily basis, and based on their expert knowledge, I can conclusively say that children are NOT immured. It depends on the virus strain, he genetic makeup of the individual, and whether or not they have a pre-existing condition that makes them more vulnerable.

Do you even realize how stupid is your point?

This is what I thought, you don’t know what you are talking about. What don’t you just go back to reading your mangas?

Hmmm...well, I let others decide who sounds more intelligent here.

Of the 234 children in the study population, none ended up infected by the virus, even though some of them shared a house with an infected individual.

A small Italian town with 3000 residents? This is practically anecdotal. Just because 234 children didn't contract the virus does not mean that "children do not catch (or develop symptoms) or spread the virus." (your exact words) As I mentioned earlier, children HAVE contracted and died from the virus in the UK, Australia, and the US.

You can argue that children are less susceptible to infection; you can even say that they are less likely to be carriers, but you cannot say that they haven't of can't get the virus. because they CAN and they HAVE.

BTW, second article, completely in French...don't understand a word ...sorry.

There isn't anything surprising, it is known now that children do not catch (or develop symptoms) or spread the virus.

This is COMPLETELY WRONG! Children have had, and have died from it. And children can be carriers as well....Please STOP spreading false information!!

Cases of children who have had died from covid19:

If we have to announce national emergency again, it will give traumatic damages to Japanese economy.

The last national emergency was a joke! People going to pachinko, trains still packed, not practicing social distancing, people out and about as if everything was hunky dory. If they had done a REAL lock down, we might have been over with this by now!

And the woman in the picture shows exactly why I don't wear masks. They are stifling hot, creating lots of sweat.

I do not wear mask too.

And that's why you're part of the problem

People need to stop overestimating this

I this case, I think it would a lot better to overestimate than downplay or underestimate.

People are still very complacent. The government is downplaying the gravity of this situation way way too much. I also think businesses need to step up their game a bit an not allow people into stores who refuse to wear masks.

I went to a Starbucks this morning, no one was practicing social distancing; the tables were packed with people wearing no masks and taking loudly to each other. I walked immediately. This is soooo irresponsible and places like this deserve to be shutdown!
