It seems like many nurses are kinda like soldiers being sent to war without combat gear. Unimaginable. Horrifying to think about, really.

Why is testing only 0.37 people per 1,000?

USA is 6.6 people per 1,000.

Posted in: U.S. Embassy sounds alarm on coronavirus in Japan See in context

Japan needs trusted leaders like Dr. Anthony Fauci and Governor Andrew Como to supply transparent fact based information and advice with daily updates. Most of all Japan needs to shut down: businesses, schools, restaurants and get those trains to be much less packed like virus incubators. NOW. No more urging or suggesting.

This is WAR.
