Health experts had pleaded with Americans to stay home over Thanksgiving and not gather with anyone who didn't live with them. Nevertheless, almost 1.2 million people passed through U.S. airports Sunday,
Everywhere in the world people are getting tired of this Covid thing.
Therefore they ignore health experts or government warnings or requests to stay home.
The problem is that the people also start to stop their personal preventions, like wearing masks, washing hands, use sanitizer...
Everyone Is tired and waiting for the vaccine.
People want to live their lives!
It is understandable...

Mickey mouse could do at least the same if not better job
In other words you also don't know anybody who can do it better in japan.
Just Nonstop complaining, but no suggestion for a solution.

they only have themselves to blame for repeatedly voting for the LDP
Which other "Good" Choice do they have?
Like I said in my upper post...I don't see anybody.
If the japanese population have a good counter candidate, THEN I am sure the LDP is over.
But there is nobody.

potentially threatens the chances of his premiership extending beyond next autumn
Next autumn a vaccine is probably available and the pandemic is over or at least under control.
And then nobody is asking anymore about how good or bad Suga managed the pandemic.
But instead of Suga, who else has the ability to be a "Good Big Boss" of Japan? (I don't know anybody so far).

Sports are going on, even in the pandemic.
Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr...
UFC is testing each fighter 3 or more times before the fights.
But all events are without spectators, and this kind of sport is no team sport.
And today in "Health" there is a report that the WHO said, people should do exercise, even in a pandemic. Otherwise a new pandemic can come up.
And look at the picture in that article. That picture says everything.

People are never ever satisfied!
-23 ( +3 / -26 )
I think the posters who are everyday screaming for more tests will be satisfied, or???
Almost 10.000 tests...Wow!
-23 ( +8 / -31 )
Tokyo reports record high 570 new cases
But also record high amount of tests: 9.792
They never conducted so many tests. (Almost 10.000)
Even me is surprised about increasing amount of tests.
3 ( +17 / -14 )
Maybe he forgot that in the countries that he mentioned they do hundred thousand of tests per day with populations almost half of Japan.
How is the amount of tests related if a lockdown is effective or not???

Sometimes I read here how nice China is...
Then why are so many people from China living overseas?
Why do so many people trying to leave China?
If China is so nice, why they don't stay in China?

I keep hearing everyone saying we need a strict lockdown.
It won't happen so put a sock in it.
Would have strict lock down been effective? The evidence suggests otherwise. Germany, France, Italy...
And Guys, we are now almost 1 year in this pandemic...did anybody see the End of the World in Japan like many times predicted here from the fear mongering posters?
-12 ( +5 / -17 )
lockdowns or other draconian measures can eliminate or even contain this virus are just dreaming.
I 100% agree!
The behaviour of each single person, according personal prevention, is the Keypoint!

restricting the number of visitors at weddings and funerals to 100.
Wow! That is a lot!
I dont know how many people usually visit a funeral in South Korea...
all restaurants must close by 9 p.m
Sounds similar to Japan, just 1 hour difference.

Moderator, why delete the post?
Because free speech is not allowed here.
If your post doesnt reflect the Moderators opinion, it will be delete!
Fully Control and Censorship!
Japantoday is similar to any other Website managed by the CCP!

*‘You must close at 10pm for 3 weeks*
This is not possible in Japan.
There is a law in japan who forbid that.
Therefore the government or any other officials in Japan can only ask to follow her request.

The purpose behind this is to “force” the people going home earlier and to stop “overdrinking”.
If people overdrink, they completely lose their sensibility according personal preventions.
After eating dinner, the people go to Bars and Karaoke. Especially Japanese Salary Men to release stress.
But after too much drinking, people scream and shout, and stop wearing masks.
Koike wants the people go home instead of continue to go to Bars and Karaoke.
Of course that is not a 100% effective prevention, but it can help at least 20 to 30%.
And better doing this, than nothing.
I agree with Do the Hustle,
If the compensation payment is very low for the Bars and Clubs, many of them will not close.
But if I remember back in May, many Izakaya and Clubs in my area follows Koike’s request and they shut down from 10pm.

an infectious disease expert , said it was clear greater movement of people boosted infection risk.
You don't need to be an expert for that.
That happens to all viruses the world faced already. Also for the flu!
Each single elementary school kid knows that.

I am a little bit surprised...
If I remember well...many here supported Koike a lot during the last election for Tokyo Mayor.
"Yeah she is so good", and "she is brave to stand against Abe"... and whatever kind of supporting posts I read here.
But now, I read completely different!

In my son's school, 1 kid was tested positiv around 5 or 6 weeks ago.
The school was shut down for 5 days and all school activities were canceled.
After 5 days things went back to normal, and so far everything seems OK.
But, these 5 days shut down was a very big challenge for mine and other families.
My wife couldn't go to work for 5 days, and because this shut down came up so sudden, her company was not really happy about the absent of my wife.
Other parents had exactly the same problem.
So shut down schools completely is a very tough thing to to do and a big challenge for families.
I agree with Aly Rustom here, to adjust school times, club activities and so on...would be a good idea.
Like in my company, Lunch time is adjusted, so that each division has a different lunch time and the cantine is not overcrowded.

One more point:
Everyone is always screaming for the Government! Help with money, help with money!
I 100% agree.
But, we all, each of us, should do something to help these small family businesses to survive.
Especially because we are living in Japan and these small family Izakaya and Ramen shops are the heart of Japan.
-5 ( +7 / -12 )
We all should think about the life existence of these Mom and Pops Ramen shops and small Izakayas.
I still visit my favorite Izakaya in my neighborhood, because they do their best prevention against the virus and I feel safe there.
They also shut down in May for about 6 weeks but me and all other regular customers support them with Take Out.
And this is what we all should do.
Stop staying in a paranoid status according the Virus. Prevention is the Key Point.
If you and the Ramen Shops and Izakayas do the best prevention, there is no higher risk to get infected like every day when you go to work.

It is the "work from home" restrictions
Exactly, but why and who pushed the "work from home"?
Corona and fear mongering topics 24 hours a day.
But even in home office, you have a lunch time, but because of the ultraparanoid fear, people don't go to lunch to Ramen shops like before.

The foreign ministers of Japan and China agreed Tuesday to cooperate in fighting the coronavirus
If Japan is serious about that, than keep people from Mainland China out of Japan.
