we don't fit interlocking ventilation system between compartments on marine vessels.... Make up air to each compartment always come from outside.
Viruses on cruises are generally spread by people touching the same surfaces, not via air.

The vessel is registered in GB, which makes it British soil. End of story.
This is GB's responsibility.
International maritime law does not quite work like that.

The ultimate beneficial owner of Daimond Princess is American.
The operator of the vessel is American (although they have global offices)
The vessel is registered in Britain.
(It's like a Brit or American owning a car in Japan.)

Can Japan goverment make a statement telling Japan cashiers, retail workers to start using the coin dish again and not try to touch customers hand when giving back change!
So the contaminated dish and coins are not a factor in your thought process, then?

Gargling will decrease the level of bacteria in the mouth.Doctors recommend that patients do this.
Bacteria has nothing to do with it... it is a virus not a bacteria. So doctors may well recommend this for bacterial infections but it does nothing for a coronavirus.
Facemasks are not shown to prevent contraction of the virus by the wearer, however they can help prevent the virus being expelled in sneezes and coughs by someone with the virus whether they are presenting or not.
That being said, more than normal hand washing with soap and water is by far the best way to try to prevent the virus spread, Hand sanitizers are generally ineffective against viruses.

Until somebody dies of the virus in Japan then the Japanese authorities are doing a great job.
2% of people that catch the common flu virus every year die... it's a normal statistic and this virus is no different in that 2% statistic.
So the fact that no one has yet died in Japan shows quite a good standard of care so far... much rather be in Japan receiving their care than in most other countries, US and UK included!

you can have flu, pass it on and show no symptoms for two weeks.
This is indeed a PANDEMIC
by definition it is not but well done for using capital letters to emphasize your hysteria.

Dominic Raab is a moron and would have trouble negotiating a glass of tepid water. The man who resigned as Brexit secretary in opposition to the Draft Withdrawal Agreement that he himself drew up and negotiated in the first place... he's a complete waste of oxygen.

The fact that other countries are actively researching the therapeutic potential of MDMA and LSD shows just how backward and ignorant the Japanese are on drugs. Both of these drugs have the potential to unleash life-changing positive experiences, for example helping with depression and anxiety.
MDMA for medical/therapeutic purposes is already available in Japan and government has already issued licenses for the import, storage, handling and prescribing of it.

My Japanese network (DoCoMo) is far superior to the American (T-Mobile) and UK (O2) networks I am also on... All of them do the job but the Japanese network is better in my experience.

Hand sanitizers are generally effective against bacteria rather than viruses.
Unless you have a very aggressive sanitizer with at least 95% alcohol, hand washing is by far the better method of eliminating viruses.
It's good advice as Coronaviruses are spread extensively via hand contact.

said Thursday that former Chairman Carlos Ghosn used company funds for private events...
So what? Standard corporate procedure throughout Japan... Even the PM (allegedly) uses public funds for private purposes... which is worse?

It baffles me as how the CEO (or former CEO) of a company in Japan, with owned home in Japan, does not have a residence card?
He did not necessarily need one it depends on his length of stay in Japan each year. Ghosn travelled the world frequently and had houses all over the world; he likely did not need a Residence Card.
You don't need a Residence Card to own a home or homes in Japan, same as most developed countries around the world.
Japan multinational bosses of his status and higher who are bouncing around the planet on a weekly basis often do not have Japanese residency. This includes Japanese persons, not just foreigners.
