@MarkX

If Japan with 120MM inhabitants cannot manage a 4M people quarantine, it is a failed state. Period!

Posted in: All their comments during the Fukushima nuclear accident in 2011 were 'there's no immediate danger to health.' Now they're saying 'in an epidemiological sense,' it (the coronavirus) is not spreading. See in context

The cover up of Fukushima was of a completely different nature vs. this coronavirus. There was a real risk of the spent fuel pools to collapse and make a 300km radius inhabitable for decades (Tokyo being part of it).

So far there is no coronavirus-19 epidemic except in China.

Just keep washing your hands regularly.

Posted in: Canada to evacuate passengers from virus-hit cruise ship See in context

How can people be evacuated of this ghost ship for an off-shore quarantine by USA, Canada, ... while it cannot be done in Japan?

People raising the "who pays" matter are just ridiculous greedy people not worth any attention.

@Mr. Noidall

I have experienced public transports in many countries, no difference in Japan except they do not leave seat to elderly because the elderly does not want to be seen as an elderly.

And when someone has his seat, you can be a pregnant woman none will give you the place in 90% of the situation, same as everywhere else.

Posted in: Non-infected Americans from cruise ship in Yokohama to be taken back to U.S. See in context

The most absurd behaviour comes from the feeling that if you are contaminated you die.

So far the estimation is 2% mortality and mostly old males with already existing health issues.

Just take deep breath and calm down with that.

The handling of this ship situation by Japan is absolutely not acceptable.

Such a boat can dock in an adequate place with an adequate quarantine camp with adequate medical support.

A complete shame for such a so-called highly developed nation.

And BTW how do you plan to "ship" back these people to their home country for quarantine?

Helicopter from the ship deck maybe?

@kwatt

If Japan (120MM inhabitants) cannot manage 3,700 tourists quarantine, better Japan stops trying to make more money with tourists.

Tourism industry is a get and give business. Like with any business, there is risk associated with, you need to be ready to cope with it.

And mega contamination on a ship is not a new story.

Leave them alone on this Petri box and for sure they will all be contaminated.

What a shame that Japan cannot give more help to these people by creating a proper quarantine zone anywhere this ship can go.

I will not comment about most of the above disgusting and selfish comments with no scientific understanding,

Posted in: 55% of visitors to Japan given no coronavirus info at hotels: survey See in context

What info has to be given:

Wash your hands thoroughly and regularly.

Cough/sneeze in a tissue that you dispose right away properly in a closed trash bin or at in your elbow.

If sick (temperature, pain, respiratory problems, ... ), wear a mask and go immediately to see a doctor.

Quite simple, no?

Who does not know this?

@ Aly

Are you vaccinated against H1N1?

If not I strongly advise you to consider it.

Coronavirus does not like heat and high humidity. It will be gone by that time.

Posted in: Japan bars entry of 2nd cruise ship See in context

If there is no case of nCov2019 in this ship - assuming it has left any potential contamination 14 days ago - there is no reason to bar it.

If no nCov2019 is confirmed within these 14 days, barring them is just plain and simple discrimination that is not tolerable.

Virus can start anywhere.

I am not a fan of China but the steps they are taking to try to contain it are really massive and never experienced before anywhere in the world.

If you have any doubts, you may refresh your memory about the USA H1N1 virus handling in 2009.

I do not know this journalist. But if he is a true investigative one in tough or war place he need to be supported. Truth is the most important thing and need to be promoted.

Comments about the cost to save him - assuming he was doing a journalist job - is just a shame, while he is risking his life for us sipping a cocktail in our sofa.

If the prosecutor has that strong evidences, why do they fear he could tampered them with, why does it take 1 or 2 or 3 years to go into trial?

All that on top of Nissan giving and supporting the accusation.

Ghosn might not be clean but the prosecutor look very dirty in comparison.
