Thanks to him bowing under the pressure from China at the beginning of the pandemic, we are now in this situation. I still remember he adamantly stated that the virus could not transmit between human and argued against border closure against travel from China. He is useless and a crook.

These Olympic rules are too abtritary and seemingly lean towards rich countries' advantages. In one case, here is a black woman from poor family born with female genital, identified as a female, but has Y chromosome. So they stop her from competing due to her natural advantage even though it's what Nature made her. Then there is a case of a white millionaire man who identified as a female, transitioned to become a woman yet still retain their natural advantage for muscle and bone development. This person was an average weight lifter as a man, yet perform at Olympic competition level as a woman even they are in their 40s. How does this even make sense? The whole thing also stinks of most of the -ism, sexism, racism and even classism.

This movie is a dud. Many fans of the cartoon version will skip it because they removed most of the songs and Mushu. Chinese audience will not watch it because they already have numerous and better versions produced in China.

These current "cancel" culture reminds me of a similar movement in the past : " Chinese cultural revolution" where everything or everyone who represents or expressed the wrong thought or wrong image would be destroyed or denounced. The impact of this is long lasting in China and to a lesser extent in Vietnam. In China, many cultural artefacts and architectural structures were destroyed and lost. Of course, both movement were originated from the far left. The irony for those advocate for these movements are often themselves got "cancelled" the moment they could not maintain the purity of thought.

Let wait for 2 weeks and see that second wave coming. Stupidity and hypocrisy is clearly on displayed here. The people who protested are probably the same people who criticized the nut cases in US who protested lock down and social distancing measures a couples of weeks ago. Two sides of the same coins. Is the world full of moronic people or the mainstream media and social media give a loud but small group of people more prominence?

I noted that most of the posters who criticize this woman are men. To these people, i say: please educate yourself. Postnatal depression is real and has been accepted as mental illness. Someone I closely know had it and it was pretty bad, but luckily she received good support and overcame it. This woman did not receive the support she needs, which leads to this sad outcome.

And we realise that the idea that Japanese people are community minded and society focused is just a myth.

She has postnatal depression and probably got very little support from her husband and the welfare agency. Such an avoidable situation.

I found it is strange that Japan was not hit as hard as other Asian countries despite few restrictions in place compared to other and the large elderly population. Maybe better healthcare system and healthier population?

It feels like the plot of Akira now. If the Olympic still goes ahead, please include a reenactment of the scene where Tetsuo, symbolising the virus, rampaging through Tokyo.

They will delay it despite their heads in the sand attitude. July is not far ahead enough time to have a vaccine available and there's no warranty that the virus is no longer spreading. Other countries will not sending their athletes. Witness the disintegration of the Australian Grand Prix.

This is why I think Coronavirus will impact US the most among the developed countries. They don't have the universal healthcare system that others developed countries have to adequately reduce the spread . They focus more on individual rights rather the common benefit of society so whatever rules that the government issues to contain the virus will not be followed. And they also don't have the authoritarian power of China and many of the developing countries have to ensure people obeying the rule.

80 countries are banning people transiting thru South Korea or force them into 14 days quarantine now. Isreal even flied all Korean tourists back to SK. Why SK government didn't protests these countries? Or it is all about their weird complex toward Japanese again.

If my country didn't impose the 14 day self quarantine requirements for anyone flying from Japan, I would love to go for the hanami this year! Viewing sakura blossom with less crowd would be fantastic! And the ticket is cheap.
