One of the Japanese Wuhan returnees who refused quarantine just gave coronavirus to his young son. Reported on NHK last night. The young child is one of the stats in the report above. Why is this being downplayed in the media?
Every other country forces 14 days quarantine on their Wuhan returnees. Big, big error by the Japanese government.

Forget masks. You need to wash your hands and gargle. You can pick up viruses in your hair and on your clothes.

If I understand this correctly you can get taken off a train for not wearing a mask.?! Together with the lunatic who pressed the emergency alarm?

When you build a hospital in only 10 days don't expect survival rates to improve. These are essentially storage warehouses with beds in them.

Ask yourselves, after generations of the animal markets in China, why this virus appeared now.
There's more to this virus than we are being told. I can't see why suddenly this new virus came from the animal markets in China.
I doubt this virus started from a live animal market.

Nonsense. Does anyone know what sunlight produces for our health? We need vitamin D.
Very clever and innovative solution, good job Mitsubishi.
Absolutely not. Ask them to design workspaces with real sunlight instead.

Cover-up silence. A company employee in his 20s from Chiba and that's it? They wait until someone dies and then reports the news. Then jump to 'but in good news passengers and crew on the cruise liner..'
They allowed those two Japanese from Wuhan just to trot off home. And Abe continues to encourage Chinese tourism revenue. This is the outcome.
I imagine the young employee in his 20's has been commuting to Tokyo five days a week.

The Palestinians lost the moral high ground years ago with this cowardly terrorism
As opposed to state organised terrorism hiding behind the title of a security force.
The fact that you recognise the term Palestinians means that you understand there was a land called Palestine. You have conflicted your own statement.

The Italians are taking it to another level by refusing Taiwanese. I know Many Italians are essentially right wing bordering on racist, but any simple geography and history lesson will show you that Taiwan is a different island. Different passports too.
There are Taiwanese tourists stranded in Italy and Taiwan is struggling to get return flights out. And Taiwan currently has one of the best records in containing this coronavirus.

10 cases out of 273 tests means potentially 148 people will develop the virus on that ship.
A health ministry official said not everyone would be tested with PCR (polymerase chain reaction) kits because it was too time-consuming and deemed unnecessary.
There are no words for this. If the Olympics are threatened it will suddenly become necessary.

Sense should see this test not clashing with the rush hour commute anyway. Apart from this awful chikan abuse going on why is the morning commute joined by a huge number of students for such an important exam?
Why is common sense so difficult? Get the exam to start later in the morning or have it on a Saturday morning.
And what happened to the female-only cars? I don't see them at all on my Tokyo metro line. Every line should have a female-only car.

The example of the Korean lady returning from Thailand with the virus is the real issue. She is not Chinese and has not been in China. This is how this virus will grow outside of normal controls.
Isn't it about time the Chinese government shut down these live animal markets?

It was a great mistake to build the tunnel under the Channel and to break the wall of the Sea that defended the country
Ahahahaha. This is sarcasm, right?
Maybe Johnson can trade wooden crates of tea on galleon ships, or ride chainmail-suited knights into Jerusalem..?

Japan needs to strengthen its alliance with Taiwan. Especially with the communist-aligning Moon in Seoul sitting in the laps of Beijing and Pyongyang.
Japan and Taiwan hold the future security of south east Asia in their hands.
Abe should do whatever he can to keep Taiwan happy. Arm them as well if necessary.

The UK is in Europe. Why be happy about being free to trade with Australia or Japan? Did anyone study geography at school? Why free yourself from doing business with your neighbours to go and trade with countries on the other side of the world.? And just one more question - just what exactly does the UK have to trade? We sold off all of our professional trades. It's a service industry nation.
Small local British businesses trade with Europe. Not Australia.

The idiots who voted my country into this mess were encapsulated on BBC Radio celebrating in Parliament Square last night. When interviewed it was embarrassing.
The best they could reason for why they were celebrating was to regain their sovereignty (I doubt they understand what that really means), how the country would be great again (yep, Donny has his prints all over that quote), and then broke into choruses of God save the queen (no, unfortunately not the Sex Pistols version).

Not even a day has elapsed and we realise that Gibraltar has been thrown under the bus. Spain will pressurise the EU not to permit EU trade into Gibraltar unless the UK renegotiates Gibraltar. No more EU protection for Gibraltar.
You see, Johnson and Farage either don't have the foresight or don't care about such real geographical problems due to Brexit.
I hope the Scots get their independence and rejoin the EU. And I'm English.

So after all the celebrations and fireworks and Big Ben and Union Jacks on Downing Street, what are you going to do now? Now means reality. In real life there is still austerity, poor public transport, waiting for Doctors appointments, poor education standards, crime. Who will they blame that all on now?
I have never felt so alienated from my fellow countrymen. When interviewed whilst celebrating in Parliament Square their reasons included "sovereignty"! The UK never lost its sovereignty. These Brexit voters are simply not educated. They then broke into choruses of God save the queen. Ask your queen how her non-tax paying children have behaved in life. And you want God to save her..?

Other posters need to reread the quote. The drugstore manager said they are Chinese buying up the masks. No need for the Japan-bashing and accusations of racism.

In defence of these accusations against the Chinese, Taiwan is currently receiving criticism from the Chinese for not increasing the Taiwanese export of face masks to China. Taiwan quite rightly needs to safeguard it's own stocks. China is complaining that they need these masks more.
It is highly unlikely that Japanese are hoarding baby diapers - it is the Chinese resell business for sure, and likely for these face masks too.

Nice. I like it a lot. Its a sporting uniform and it shows Japan's national colours well. But please - put the Paralympians in the centre and not to the side.

If you make the club culture about paying the highest wages, and the players you attract are attracted because of the highest wages, then you have lost. I don't like Man You, but their successful history came from their academy, along with a great manager, and boosted by good transfers here and there.
United need to invest in their youth and just tweak with some astute transfers. They need 3 or 4 years. And they need to invest in a manager with a 4 year plan playing attacking football.
They need to forget about Champions League for 3 seasons. Ferguson started by winning the Cup Winners Cup and doing well in the FA Cup, he didn't start by winning the European Cup.
Man You fans make me laugh. The Glazers and Woodward have paid ridiculous money for top transfers every window. And they are protesting against the Glazers? Try being an Arsenal fan..

Why not turn the building into an exhibition memorial gallery owned by Kyoto Animation? Visitors can view inside, it will be educational, donate if they wish, remember those who were killed, promote their animation work, and keeps visitors off peoples driveways.

All over NHK tv news but not a word for the driver who was killed. All the news covering this is disgraceful. As if Japanese Olympics badminton is more important than life.

NHK, the national tv channel, unashamedly plugged these last night. They even flaunted them in the studio. If I were Adidas Japan I would be knocking down the door of the governments tv licencing office this morning. Absolutely no hiding it from NHK.

This system is open to these accidents. How can traffic and pedestrians both have green lights?
It's the one thing the UK does properly - dedicated lights for drivers and then for pedestrians.
This system in Japan is just to free up the traffic flow, regardless of child safety.

The big issue is that Trump is not a reliable protector, nor does he have a clue about Taiwanese history.
It is crucial for the Taiwanese that normality returns to the US presidency with a seasoned politician who respects the world order.
In my opinion Taiwan should get even closer to Japan - the two countries together would present a decent deterrent to Chinese threats.
