An exhaust fan continuously expels air from the rear compartment out of the vehicle so that it will not be circulated to the forward compartment, preventing infection
I hope the air is suitably filtered before being expelled - not that some passerby on the street waiting to cross the road at the traffic lights end up getting infected!
Hospitals accepting patients would ne nice too!

Fujino also urged people working at home to be more careful about their choice of words when communicating online.
"People need to be aware that it is hard to communicate their feelings (online) and be respectful of the feelings of people on the other end," she said.
Shouldn’t we always be careful when choosing I words, whether online or in person?

Midleading picture to go with the story.
Those beds are for quarantine before entering the country. Nothing to do with medical cases!
Let’d carry on midleading the people.

No where in the article does it state what it means for the restrictions in the daily lives of us citizens - only what the implications are for the economy.
We now know the true priorities of the government!

In Kyoto, where elementary schools are scheduled to resume on Wednesday, Megumi Aoyama, 34, welcomed the move, saying she was worried that the further prolonging of school closures would affect her daughter who enters elementary school this year.
"I hope the school will teach her hand-washing habits and other aspects of hygiene," she added.
So that is what schools are for? Where is the parental responsibility?

It’s partially born out of Japan’s general aversion to snacking while walking (which means locals aren’t likely to generate much trash while out and about) and partially out of the fact that just about everyone, men and women, carry some sort of bag (which lets them carry home whatever trash they do generate), but it’s still an inconvenience.
Guess you can spin anything these days.
Thought it was more due to the fact that the bins were removed sometime in the past for whatever reason.....

Travelled many times on the Shinkansen and never seen any space where they could possibly store this additional luggage.
There are a lot of reserved seats on these trains, a pre-condition for travelling with over-sized luggage, so potentially you would need a lot of reserved space for this luggage.
Hopefully you also get to sit near your luggage - and not walk half the length of the train.
Guess it‘s going to make those annoying announcements on the train even longer!
