Why miss the chance to make 3.85 million dollars (413 million yen) during the pandemic while her fellow countrymen and women are back in Japan struggling with their loss of jobs, decreased salaries, changes in work and family conditions and routines not to mention the virus.

Similar story to some of you guys here in East Osaka too. Went to a home center and a major electrical store around 1pm today and found carparks and stores full with zero social distancing among shoppers. Quite a few old timers seem to have stopped wearing masks too because, you know, it's "atsui".

Anyway got what I wanted and got out quick while J families just meandered about touching merchandise and trying to placate their bored kids.

Deaths in custody.

You conveniently forgot mention that in that total since 1991 there were 39 deaths in hospital due to car accidents while individuals were awaiting formal driving charges, 31 deaths due to natural causes, 28 suicides, 10 deaths due to justifiable homicide and 146 deaths in the Australian jails due to prisoner on prisoner violence.

"...foreigners who are stranded in Japan because their home countries have closed the borders due to concerns over the spread of the coronavirus"

JT you need to fact check stories before posting them. Argentina and Holland have not closed their borders to their citizens. Even just a cursory check via Google would have confirmed this bv good on the locals for helping people out.
