TBH I can't stand messages like these at times of crisis.

What about all the poor people who have died?... what about their families?

They didn't win.

Some of the left-wingers on here make me laugh.

They don't even have the grace to put politics aside for a minute and offer a fellow human good wishes for a speedy recovery when he/she is down.

Of course they always like to make a big show of their 'tolerance', 'humanity' etc.

I suppose that their unfunny petty little remarks like using the term 'PM Bozo' are more important for them.

This kind of comment is interesting:

... contributions... on a par with, or even exceed those made by most European countries.

I often observe Japanese people eager to compare their culture or achievements with those of other countries, for the main purpose of establishing the superiority of Japan in their own minds.

It's a childish trait of some Japanese IMHO.

Perhaps they have a feeling of inferiority that they dislike.

Maybe, in their minds, they compare a man playing a shamisen with a full European symphony orchestra and it kind of makes them angry or something.

Another aspect is the ridiculous plethora of "Nihon Sugoi!!" TV programs in Japan.

There seems to be one on TV here every night... with Japanese lauding Japan's culture to the high heavens.

Or else they get foreigners to do the lauding.

These programs just seem to be really smug and creepy.

They almost seem designed to brainwash the Japanese into loving Japan.

@cornbread1

Thanks for the link... it makes Japan's policy seem shockingly bad.

What the hell is the government playing at?

Posted in: Tokyo confirms 143 new coronavirus infections Sunday See in context

Just regarding the testing, I have a few questions for someone more knowledgeable than me.

When we hear the number of new cases announced on the evening news, is that the number of new cases reported by hospitals for that day from (say) 8am to 6pm?

Or is it the total number of new cases reported since the last figure was announced?

Also, how long is the 'time lag' between the number of new cases and when they were actually tested?

I mean, for example, if we get 100 new cases announced in Tokyo today, is that really a snapshot of the new cases (say) 3 days ago because after a person is tested it takes 3 days to get the test results?

I'm just curious about this.

It does seem that, in Japan, corona positive people with mild symptoms are NOT TESTED.

Therefore it's extremely difficult if not impossible to get an accurate picture of the spread of COVID-19 in Japan.

The number of tests performed has been very low, but seems to have gone up somewhat (on average) since March 25th... interesting timing!

Testing data here: https://mainichi.jp/covid19

It does seem to me that the major news organizations in Japan have stopped even questioning how many tests have been performed and whether the number performed is enough...

Have they been ordered to do so by the government?

Surely it's a point of interest.

I can't rely on the mainstream TV news reports in Japan at all. They're not doing their job.

The Vietnamese and Chinese gangs are very strong in Japan (and LA). Even the Yakuzas avoid them

Instead of victimizing innocent people, can't the yakuza start a turf war with the Chinese and Vietnamese gangs.

It might rid society of some antisocial elements on all 3 sides.

27 March 2020: Wuhan lifts its lockdown, resumes all transportation

We need the real story and the real data from Wuhan. NOT this made up data from the Chinese government.

Seriously, for the people posting here... why do you accept the data from the Chinese government at face value? You trust them that much?

A few months back, Justice Minister Masako Mori extolled Japan's "fair criminal justice system".

In this case too, we can see how "fair" Japan's justice system really is.

What a disgrace.

I really hope this person sues that corrupt investigator.

China's death toll figures are complete and utter fiction.

I don't believe China's BS data for one minute.

And I can't believe media outlets are just accepting them at face value.

If they had real journalistic values they would send reporters into Hubei and Wuhan to get the true story.

It sounds weird, horrible and soul-destroying.

TBH it was boring.

I thought that because the players had spent all their energy in achieving perfection, they had nothing left for adding heart or personality or passion into the performance.

It seemed plastic and artificial.

Japan's lack of testing is a disgrace.

Japan is showing itself to be a third world nation.

I can't trust Japan at all.

Japan is deceiving the world.

It is deliberately not testing to keep the number of cases low.

It is trying to protect the Olympics.

It is pathetic.

This is getting beyond ridiculous.

Now he is facing a tsunami of calls to cancel and is still digging his heels in.

He is only thinking about money. It's disgusting.

The Olympic Games have become a grotesque mutation of what they used to be.

They cause corruption, waste, environmental damage, monstrous unused edifices, huge tax burdens on ordinary people and general disruption.

In their present form they should be scrapped entirely

It's become the ridiculous flame.

For heaven's sake... there will be no Olympics this year.

The IOC and Bach thought they could give the usual platitudes and just carry on regardless.

They have been shown to be corrupt imbeciles. Only thinking of money and their own gravy train.

I was just laughing at this ridiculous ceremony on TV last night.

"The sacred flame'... give us a break.

The IOC has shown the world the Olympics are a vehicle for corruption, money grubbing, environmental destruction, bankrupting cities and dumping all the costs on hapless citizens.

More and more people are completely against the corrupt games.

The Democrats don't have a snowball's chance in hell of winning in November.

Trump is on a roll, the economy is doing OK and America always loves a showman.

The only thing that the impeachment attempt served to do was to show America that Nancy Pelosi is almost senile.

She made a complete fool of herself with her mumbling, gurning, paper shuffling and ripping up papers like a child.

That alone has added hundreds of thousands if not millions of votes from undecided voters to the Republican tallies.

The writing is on the wall for the Democrats.

Just like the useless Labour Party in the UK led by that idiot Red Corbo, they are dooming themselves to defeat.
