If he were Japanese, he would have hung by the neck. Interesting that the Koreans pardoned their own but scream for Justice from Japan.

Exactly.

In addition to that, he was a awful head of state in S. Korea.

Lets suppose that the number of cases were 1 million, don't you think the number of hospitalized people would be ten times than current number?

As many people are getting vaccines, the more hope we have that things will improve. Of course, vaccines itself will not cure people. So, we still need to wear our masks and wash our hands with soup often.

I wonder if a while back European countries and America were writing articles about their vaccine rates being higher than Asia?

Nah, didn't think so. I don't know why vaccination rates seem like a competition here in Asia.

The article is just here to explain how much things has being improved in Asia. Comparing numbers with Europe or US doesn't mean Asian are using this number as competition as you suggest. When we work with statistics we need to make comparisons in order to see if we improved or not.

SmithinJapan having 1 case or 1 million case will not change the fact that there are few people hospitalized in Japan. In addition to that, I don't know any country in Europe that have more test than Japan that has same number of hospitalized people.

Doesn't matter how many people are tested, as long few people are hospitalized and the number of recovering is higher, the test thing is irrelevant.

If you are not admitted into the public hospital then you can not be counted as infected or as a death statistic.

Why not?

I guess it is his thought, just that. He doesn't have any evidence about it.

People with common sense knows that the actual numbers are a lot higher. J-gov is manipulating they way they gather data or excludes information to show the actual infection rate.

Ok, can you give evidences about it?

If you are not admitted into the public hospital then you can not be counted as infected or as a death statistic.

Ok, can you give me a link that support your opinion? I bet you don't have.

Because home deaths are not being listed as covid deaths. Only those in a hospital. Better to overestimate the figures than underestimate them. The figures will still be low. In 2020, there were a total of fewer deaths than in 2019.

That is interesting. I read the whole article and there is nothing that suggest that deaths at home are not counted as covid deaths. Anyway, if you guys have a link that provides information about it, it would be interesting to read.

From the article and what many realistic people repeated here :

No one knows exactly how many died at home

But yeah, trust the official numbers ...

As I could understand this sentence is talking about common people and not about people who are encharged to give the account number. Off course common people don't know exactly how many people died at home since we as common people don't have information about it, but that doesn't mean the government is not aware about it.

When he didn't answer phone calls from public health workers for three days, police went to his home and found him dead in his bed.

From this sentence we can infer that police get the information and them reported it to Public Healthy workers

We have seen the number of cases bellow 500(497) since October 17th. Since them we had the election campaing and the end of state of emergency that according to some of us would affect the number, but this number didn't change, on the contrary, the number even came to 9 cases in Tokyo(I don't remember the day that JT reported) that was pretty low.

Some may arguee that it is due to "lack of test", but how can you explain the number of hospitalized people in Japan being low? None of us can immagine what would be the number of cases if Japan did over 100.000 tests by day, but we can say that despite of what number would be, the number of hospitalized people would remain the same, which is a great thing.

Whether Japan would have 100 cases or 100.000 cases, that number in the end would not be as important to see as the number of those who are hospitalized.

Of course, the number of cases may not be accurate, but the chance of this number be too big is exagerated since other datas show sign of improvement.

China is afraid that Taiwan gets enough support from the US and other allies.

I personally think that this pandemic thing that China caused to the world helped other nations to see how evil is China and how Taiwan deserves to be respected and considered by other nations.

The fact of Taiwan being welcome to TPP's bid by Japan and US let a clear message that the world eventually will give support to Taiwan;

I rarely see you post about any other subject.

Considering the fact that most of his(her) comments regarding nationalism from China is on thread that talks about China's issue, it is more than normal to adress this subject my friend.

I'm pretty sure that if the subject were regarding Japanese song the content of his or her comment would not be "anti country thing".

I'm not on position to judge what is right or wrong because I don't know all the rules regarding gynastics. What I can tell is that supporters can't say things without expressing emmotion over reasons.

Nationalism is a very common sentiment in events like Olympic Games and the Chinese complaining about games is not a new thing.

Fighto

Actually this number( 233) is just one of them. Eventually those other companies will follow the same step. In fact more companies have leaved China since the beginning of this decade. Just remember that some years ago China had an anti-Japanese movement that caused Panasonic to leave that country.

With higher labor cost and strict demands mentioned here in Japan Today about Enviromental issues, foreigner companies will find itself hard to keep their production in China.

Akie, you certainly knows what is the meaning of "bad relationship". Today none of the countries in Southeast Asia trust on China and relationship with Japan was never fully good. In order to this relationship turn to be good, China needs to stop bulling her neighbors that are allied with Japan and respect their territories and boundaries; things that we know it will never happen because China is greed and prideful.

Even though news reported on May that many Japanese companies were unwilling to leave China, many facts regarding the future of China would influence them to leave the communist state of China eventually.

Those China's fans would argue that it would be impossible to happen because China is the biggest market for foreign companies; however, when we analyze China by itself we note that it is not as easy and simple as many think.

China has a lot of problems: Environmental issues, Social Security, Bad relationship with her neighbors, Unemployment Rate, etc...

The Chinese government has the goal to cut greenhouse gas emission in 2060, but in order to do it there is a need to high investment on it and cooperation from citizens and foreign and national corporation. Companies need to invest on new machines and new technology; things that they are unwilling to do because they would loose a lot of money.

China is facing the increasing number of elderly people and fertility rate also is the problem(things that is very common in the whole world). In case of China, the young one's are also immigrating to other nations in mass according to the survey that was made some years ago that concluded that 70% of all Chinese student in US was not willing to go back to China. It is a very concerning thing.

Bad relationship with neighbors is not a good thing and it never was good. It affects business relationship that will affect the economy as well. If investment is not being made, those local companies will have hard time to deal with their business and it leads to unemployment. If people are unemployed, they don't have money, and without money they cannot afford to buy car, new computers, etc...If the number of consumers is low, foreigner companies that provide those goods will not have profit and no profit will result on trouble for them. That is why I'm saying that foreigner companies leaving China for completely will occur eventually.

Exactly!!! I would add that the number of hospitalized people have being this number for long time what in comparison to many countries in Europe and North America is very low. People complain about testing that is not enough, but even if the number of test were twice than it is made in Tokyo, such number of hospitalized people would not change at all.

People who make comment should understand that whether Japan test 100000 people or not, it would not change the fact that deaths would occur anyway. We don't see the number, but it is very clear that those who are tested the majority of them are fine and only a few present symptoms of such disease. The same would be if Japan had been tested 100000 people. The number of infected could be higher, but the number of people who have to be hospitalized would be the same.

Vinke, doesn't mater how many tests it was made, the result that we should focus is the number of deaths and recovering. If in the worst scenario we have 1 million infected, the fact that this "number" were not resulted in million deaths says a good thing. The percentage of people that get the virus "1 million" who die is fewer than we could imagine. Plus if among those "1 million" a good number were those who had lung problems and still overcame it, so it is a good reason to have hope because by your logical thinking they are suppose to die, but they end up recovering from it. If we keep in mind that among "1 million infected" less than 1% died, the percentage of recovering from it is more than we could imagine.

I feel sorry for those who died, but at same time rejoice that thousands of thousands recovered from it.

As long this thing doesn't result on deaths, the number of tests made is irrelevant.

Let's suppose 1 million people are infected, still this number doesn't change the fact that number of deaths are lower than many developed countries.

Deaths happen for many reasons, which the primary one is the lack of immunity and low level of vitamin D and C and second reason may be spiritual(for those who are Christians). For some their mission in the Earth was already fulfilled and they were assigned to next mission to please the Divinity.

It is sad seeing news about it, but instead of worry about our end, what about worry about what we should do for our neighbor and for those who need us?

You won't find anyone buried at Arlington that was found guilty of war crimes at trial and hung by the neck. Plus Arlington is not a place for "war dead". Its a cemetery for veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families too.

So do you mean Vanessa that bad American soldiers who killed and raped Asian ladies back in Vietnam War, Korean war and WW II was buried at Mars? As far as I know despite of their stupid action they were never judged and were treated as "heroes" in US. In fact American people back 1970s never recognized their mistakes for what they did during the Vietnam War and other wars.
