Japan envoy in Australia says Tokyo struggles every day with China
More like Tokyo struggles every day with hiding all the trade deals with China. Japan's dishonesty is nauseating.

Japan Support for Taiwan pushed China over the edge recently.
Japan would drop Taiwan like a hot potato if it's finances were at risk. Facts.
Threats of Nuclear War if we help Taiwan, even willing to change its Nuclear Policy to be able to use it on Japan first if even one plane, one soldier is sent. JT ignoring this news because of the Olympics.
JT is not the only news outlet. A lot of other outlets are reporting it. Also, did the Biden administration threaten to nuke China in return? Nope. The response from Japans nuclear allies has been deafening silence. Also, does the threat of being nuked by China mean that Japan will boycott the 2022 Olympics in Beijing? Care to place a wager?
S. Korea right next door letting Japan carry all the weight, all the responsibilities and risk in East Asia. A democratic country unwilling to fight for democracy, but expecting 100% full support if North Korea attacks again.
What weight has Japan been carrying? Giving away a bunch of AZ vaccines to curry favor with Taiwan and Vietnam? I'm sure the Chinese are shaking in their boots.

Not too long ago, when south korea was using test, trace, treat program, some people here decried it as a horrible infringement on privacy and civil rights. Now japan wants to implement a far worst infringement on privacy and civil rights. What a difference a few months make. Now japan wants to make a tracking app many months after their first domestic cases and probably approaching the zenith of their outbreak? Like cramming for a test in the middle of the test. LOL!

The cat's out of the bag. Japan keeps corona death numbers low by simply averting their gaze, which if you've lived here for an appreciable amount of time you'll recognize is an accepted way of doing things here.
I'll take your word for it on that matter moonbloom. Your view seems to be shared by a number of people here and elsewhere.

Sorry, I meant east asian. Around here when people say asian countries they mean EAST asian (china, japan, taiwan, the two koreas). No offence intended to central asian countries, Se asian countries or the philipines.
As for my source.

That little spiel you wrote cites an article dated 3/25/2020. We are currently in 8/6/2020. Your information is waaaay out of date. Of course sk had higher numbers back in March, because they were doing mass testing even back. The japanese were not doing mass testing back then. In fact they were downplaying the problem because the olympics were still going on. In the here and now, every asian country outside of china is doing better than japan at pandemic response.

A true Coronavirus Catch-22. I guess this means that all corvid 19 numbers coming out of Japan should five times less credible.

Over-reporting = money
I'm flabbergasted by this B.S. Reporting cases of covid 19 loses money in a big way. Each reported case has to quarantine themselves or risk infecting others. They can't work when reported positive. Therefore they can't make any MONEY! Many who are infected must be hospitalized. Guess who pays for that? The state who loses money with each patient. The more case are reported, the longer some businesses remain shut, the longer lockdowns and shelter in place rules are in place.
It definitely worked for S.Korea
It did not. S. Korea actually boosted their stimulus package to 200 bn. Losing alot of money right there.
Overreporting would have made that worse.
They are now actually exporting test kits.
Seegene has actually been exporting test kits since at least late March. I don't care if it's Seegene (SK) or Roche (Swiss) or Bosch (Germany) exporting tests. If any company makes a useful test they should sell it to anyone that needs them and, yes, profit from their hard work. That's capitalism at its best.
