"Meanwhile, trump says everything's under control in America."

And if he does declare a state of emergency, then what? Because in a state of emergency, it would imply banning all mass assembly to contain the spread of the virus, which also means no Dem. election rally for anyone. Do you think Dems would go along with that?

Never mind that the border of the United States has never been 'controlled'.

Had it been, his wall would have been up and be staring at you in the face this very moment.

"Shame to Abe, you are too coward, too slow, too passive."

Shame to Xi Winnie, you are too amoral, too dishonest, too corrupt, and too much of a scum unworthy of being a human being.

There, corrected for you, Akie.

Posted in: S Korea protests over Japan's virus travel restrictions See in context

Well, there is a Coronavirus epidemic going on in Japan right now due to Japanese government's deliberate undertesting to keep the reported numbers low.

Well there is a Coronavirus epidemic going on in Korea right now due to the Korean government's inability ty to even monitor its domestic organized 'cults', which should really be called terrorist organizations at this point.

Japan is more of a health threat to Korea than Korea is to Japan.

Which I am sure you were informed of such by the illustrious Lee Man-hee.

In Korea, government has found almost all asymptomatic patients and automatically travel ban them.

That's why Korea has nearly 7 thousand cases and climbing, right?

This is why it is so important to find as many asymptomatic people as possible through extensive testing like Korea's doing, to stop further spreading.

Korea is doing a pretty bad job at it.

LOL, you really believe Japanese infection number is below 500?

LOL, even with your exaggerations, do you really think Japanese infection would be nearly as bad as Korea?

Korea protests against Japan, because it's Japan, and not because they are on any reasonable grounds or because it makes sense.

Give me one good reason why Japan shouldn't initiate travel restrictions against Korea right now? S. Korea has the highest number of confirmed cases outside of China, with a number surpassing 6,500 as of this moment. The mismanagement in Japan is bad enough, but at least Japan managed to keep domestic rates at below 500 (excluding Diamond Princess). S. Korea on the other hand, takes mismanagement into new heights.

Posted in: Raising relief funds for China means that Japan will aid the very nation taking hostile action against it. It could send a wrong message to the Chinese authorities. See in context

Let's pretend none of the political mishaps are in place, and instead, Japan generously donated resources to the Wuhan infectees. Ok, but guess what?

While Chinese authorities are are more than happy to accept these donations from around the world for the Wuhan infectees, corrupted local authorities will exploit the generosity and rake in record-high stockpiles, which will soon to be resold at above-market values so the local authorities could profit. The actual resources will never reach the infectees.

Nationalism aside, why contribute to corruption and hypocrisy? Why is Keisuke Suzuki a grandstander for speaking the truth? Why is it ok for China to take a crap on Japan, but it is the latter's responsibility to help clean up the former? I thought China is a big and powerful country. I thought China is a rich country. I thought China has standards. Or do they?

"after that China has decisively won the control of the virus."

Yes, because it is so praiseworthy for somebody who made this mess to begin with finally took the responsibilities of cleaning after their own crap. clap clap clap Good for you China, good for you.

On the other hand, what 'decisive' victories are we looking at today? You mean the new four hundred or so cases that has just been reported? What great victory! At least it's 5 less new cases than yesterday!

"If you have tested positive for the virus there, the authorities will go through CCD cameras throughout the city and check who you were in contact with, and with facial recognition software they have been able to track these people down and advise them of the risk, and keep an eye on them if they develop any symptoms, testing if necessary as well!"

You do understand that Singapore has a reported total that is close to a hundred, right?

"The Japanese needs serious measures such as those in force in South Korea!"

This is just hilarious. So what, Japan could have nearly 1,000 coronavirus cases just like South Korea? A country having trouble to regulate mask provisions and keeping its foreign exchange students in dorms? Never mind President Moon just donated 2 million masks to China. No thank you.

You want serious measures? Learn from Taiwan.

Posted in: Japan announces basic policy to fight spread of coronavirus See in context

The Japanese efforts during this crisis had been slow to respond, and relied too much on the data released by the bought & paid-for WHO, thus greatly hindering the quarantine process. This coronavirus had cracked the invincibility of the once impregnable Japanese health system, but also demonstrated the awful corruption that plagued the WHO.

This photo reminds me of a scene in Shin Godzilla, where a meeting was organized to counter Godzilla, then another meeting was organized about the previous meeting, followed by yet another meeting about the prior meeting, and followed by still another meeting about the prior meeting's prior meeting, all the while Godzilla matured from infancy to adulthood.

Hopefully a concentrated effort on effectively dealing with this crisis would be produced soon, because the longer this takes... well...

I still find it to be a great mystery as to how Zhong Kui aka Shoki received a massive 'boost' to his 'manhood' once he was exported overseas...

The original legend had no records regarding his magnificent 'shaft'.

"Every since the Maiden "revolution" the far right has gained a foothold in Ukraine."

Not saying this behavior is warranted, but you are making this political statement for what purpose? Yeah, as opposed to the far left, which will embrace the virus and infectee with open arms while the rest of Ukraine takes a dump?

"Ignorance is like a virus, it spreads like wildfire unless it’s eradicated."

And the PRC says to trust the government, which is the most ignorant behavior one could ever have.

It is interesting how people immediately point fingers at Abe for his lack of action. This is despite the fact that this incident happened over 20 years ago, and Japan was not even able to do anything then, even during the height of Japanese economic clout, why is it that people think Abe can magically repatriate the victims now?

Please do not forget who is at fault, it is the North Koreans and the ultra-left Red Army Faction. Maybe fingers should be pointed at them, how is that for a concept?

Let us not even pretend that North Korea is alone in this. It has China as its longtime ally/accomplice, and South Korea always appeasing its northern cousins instead of identifying the obvious fact that North Korea is 1984 on steroids. Just remember, North Korea has it so bad that escapees travel to China, of all places, to seek freedom. Think about that for a second.

Posted in: Coronavirus spreads fear and racism worldwide See in context

And the behavior of the Chinese government and Chinese citizens tend to add fuel to the fire.

They are not helping the situation at all. The Chinese government concealed the information regarding the outbreak until it spread across the entire country and to the rest of the world. Chinese citizens who traveled abroad continue to hide the fact that they have been to infectious zones, lie about their records and refuse to turn themselves in for examination. Some even resorted to traveling to Japan in order to escape the infection all the while realizing they may be carriers of said disease.

So while this alleged emerging racism is unfortunate, the Chinese aren't helping. Not one bit. Worse, they have brought trouble to their East Asian neighbors, and force everyone else to partake a fault not of their making.

Akie, considering this incident is part of the track-record for your precious Chinese Ministry of Health, I'd say that department is a joke, an even bigger joke than the bought & paid for WHO.

"But you do realise that Taiwan claims sovereignty over all of mainland China as well, right?"

Only claimed by the somewhat delusional KMT.

"The government of Japan, has no knowledge of the virus, but what they hear from others, even in the US, our government has posted the limited knowledge it know Google CDC Coronavirus"

Yeah, because you are working with a virus originated by China, and a Chinese government known for refusing to disclose information, including the full details regarding the infection. The only sources of information that can be somewhat relied upon are leaked videos regarding the current state of Wuhan itself, pictures of overworked doctors, and funeral homes that are working nonstop.

That's who you are working with, no wonder everyone else is left with limited knowledge, thus leaving closing the borders being the safest option!

Posted in: Japan begins screening 3,700 cruise ship passengers and crew in Yokohama See in context

This infection is spreading the way it did because the Chinese government failed to close its borders, bribed the WHO to lie about the situation, simultaneously lying to the rest of the world about the virus' actual severity. All done in an attempt to save face. Chinese citizens then make the efforts to travel to other places in an attempt to 'escape' the infection all the while realizing they themselves might be carriers of said infection and refuse to turn themselves in.

This is a practice that is disrespectful, selfish and shameful. Now the rest of the world are coerced into partaking the responsibility.

The trend in China these days are full of irony:

The CCP forced Uyghur muslims to eat pork, then China got swine flue.

The CCP used its own population as leverage against countries that rely on tourism economy, now nobody wants Chinese tourists.

The CCP banned Hong Kongers from wearing masks, now masks are in short supply in China.

Oh the irony. Keep it up CCP, keep it up...

" Usually I'm disappointed with how CCP handle things"

Disappointment is an understatement.

"Japan should do everything possible to help China with this problem"

You cannot help someone who doesn't want to help themselves. Chinese agencies had been suppressing the truth about the outbreak, and still are. They refuse to disclose actual numbers and severity regarding the issue while the CCP is telling people around neighboring province that there is no need to be cautious.

How do you help someone like that?

Posted in: Putin calls Japan-U.S. security alliance a threat See in context

"Japan-U.S. security alliance a threat"

If North Korea, China, and of course Russia weren't such a threat to begin with, then an alliance would not have been necessary. But they are.

"Japan will never allow the USA to base nuclear armed missiles in Japan. NEVER!!"

Incorrect. Those missiles are located in Okinawa. Unless you do not consider Okinawa territory of Japan.

"It’s a paradox but back in the 80es the world was a safest place due to more responsible and capable world leaders. Let’s hope that common sense will prevail."

Last time so-called 'common sense' prevailed, it ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union. Keep in mind, Putin is a student of history.

There is no simple solution to this entanglement. In fact, I do not believe there will ever be a solution.

Posted in: S Korea wants 'rising sun flag of hatred' banned at Olympics See in context

"The South Korean government, in a tweet last week, called Japan's "rising sun" flag a "flag of hatred," continuing a campaign to get the flag banned from being unfurled at game venues during next year's Tokyo Olympics."

Yet the South Koreans would say nothing of the Chinese Communist and North Korean flags, as if they weren't completely murderous regimes, not to mention the latter had put the totality of Korean-perceived colonial past to shame. But sure, let the double standards persist.

"Has anyone ever noticed that the countries that copy Japan's technology, fashion and styling have no problems stealing anything and everything 'Japanese' everyday to this day but keep on bashing Japan for what it did over 74 years ago?"

Most Japanese restaurants in the United States are operated by Korean immigrants. Samsung and Hyundai were named such because they wanted to cash in on popular Japanese brands at the time, that being Sony and Honda. Seems the S. Koreans can't make up their mind between love or hate.

"What are you suggesting? the state murder the man? How does that make them different?"

And how does keeping this man alive for his entire natural lifespan on citizens' tax dollars a better resolution to a crime so horrifically committed against someone who has yet to experience the fullness of what life has to offer?

A life-sentence to certain deviant individuals is a promise of shelter, three meals a day, air condition, and some form of healthcare paid by someone else. Oh yes, so very effective as a deterrent.
