Posted in: Saturday marked the first anniversary of Japan's first confirmed COVID-19 case, a man who returned after visiting the Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the virus at the time. Can you remember what you thought when you read or heard about that case? See in context
Thankyou China for sharing this with the world

We probably won’t see too many comments here from all those people who were calling for a complete lockdown.

Time for China to start taxing ships that pass through their waters.
Just because it’s called the South / East China Sea, doesn’t mean China owns it

so you’re saying that any person who commits a crime, should not be held accountable for his crime, & not have to face any justice for his crime - all in the name of unity & healing ?

How about we push back all future Olympics by 4 years ? This means 2024 will be Tokyo, 2028 Paris.
This would be a win-win for everyone.

agree - name them & shame them.
kick anyone pro-trump out of the party, then the republicans can start building again from scratch.
America needs the Republican Party, but they certainly don’t need anything trump

This time, Let’s not give cash handouts to those who don’t need it.

good point. What’s to stop these businesses (especially the bigger ones) from pocketing the cash & still laying off staff ?

Settle down folks & lets put things in perspective.
Every year, roughly 600,000 people die due to the seasonal flu. So 2 million for a ‘pandemic’ ain’t too bad.
And let’s not forget the Spanish flu which killed up to 50 million people.

Then give the bill to China.
hilarious ! & totally agree

The above two comments are spot on.
Not everyone is able to work at home & have to travel on crowded trains to work.
And we certainly don’t have the luxury of personal drivers like a lot of these spoiled politicians have

Meanwhile, presently, millions of Japanese are crowding onto trains and buses providing a direct vector for infections...
not everyone has the luxury of being fully paid while working at home in your pyjamas.
Many people (including myself) still have to travel to the office to work & get paid.

Its nothing more than a platform for narcissists to say look at me, validate me - press like !

Could you give us a little taste of your plan, how you would implement this and what it would involve please? @TARA TAN KITAOKA
and also how you would subsidise the businesses & financially support people who are now without any income.

The doomsayers aren’t posting, but judging by the downvotes, they’re around

They can confirm, & reconfirm, & re-reconfirm all they want - hilarious

Moon is a two faced spineless hypocrite.
He says he wants peace with Japan, all the while suing Japan, bashing Japan & blaming Japan.
Stop all these Moon, & you might get your peace

Everyone who states the all so predictable ‘stoking more division’ crap is missing the big picture.
If You let Trump get away with this, you are setting a dangerous precedent. Any future president could do the same knowing that there would be no consequences

I wonder how much he’s getting paid ?
Whatever it is, I’m sure it’s for his name off the field more than his contribution on the field.

A lot of doomsayers here.
It seems like it was a controlled environment & all participants followed protocol

Posted in: The more people earn, the greater their rate of spending on entertainment and leisure like overseas trips. I suspect cash has been spent instead on luxury goods. The coronavirus pandemic isn't an economic crisis where money disappears. See in context
In times of crisis, the rich get richer, & vice versa

typical media overkill putting the fear into the public. Unfortunately, bad news sells.

my point exactly - I’m sure the % amongst the wealthy would be higher

Get rid of all social media.
It will be the downfall of our society as we know it

Trump should fulfill his duties to the people that voted for him.
