. It's like the state of emergency was a mere formality

It was. It's the art of doing something while doing absolutely nothing at all.

The users of public transport in Tokyo were down to only 10% of normal on Monday. I'd expect further reductions now - likely down to 6-7% of normal usage.

Im thinking the notion of too little too late is lost on so many.

Or go back earlier to why was Japan in Manchuria?

Why did they set up a puppet Manchuko regime?

What was the Mukden incident and how did it define Japan's intent and relations with the countries it was occupying or other countries observing?

Who invited the IJA into China proper?

Who asked the IJA to take Shangai?

Who invited the IJA to lay siege upon the capital of a sovereign country - Nanking?

Oooff!! When smacked with logic, the mental gymnastic gears break up and off they scuttle away. Good job.

While many lawmakers sought cuts in the national sales tax that went up to 10% last October, Kishida said that would be hard, citing the difficulty of returning the tax to the current level once it had been cut

Yeah no way they'd do that. If they did, the plebs would demand for lowering it even more hence the 'its difficult' line.

The size of the measures would reach 16-17% in terms of Japan's GDP, bringing it on a par with U.S. measures totaling $2.2 trillion

Copying merica? Why am I not surprised? Why not go two trillion better?

Even the German embassy in Tokyo thinks that Koike/Abe have been lying through their teeth for weeks about the coronavirus...

Just in time for the Olympic Games!

Im thinking you didn't get the memo? Athletes are already asking for postponement and or cancellation. Can't have games without participants now can we?

If the denialists on here objectively compared the reaction of all the other countries ravaged by the virus to that of japans, you wouldn't lull yourself into believing that everything is A-OK. This is a new virus that we don't know much about. Flippantly dismissing it because it's flower season is foolhardy.

Postponing the Games it's not in Japan's hands; ONLY the IOC can do that.

It's mental how this FACT slips by most people. japan has absolutely nothing to do with the IOC decision. And postponement is out of the question because other world sports event don't evolve around the olympics. The olympics WILL be cancelled. Period.

Whats even more appalling is people not reacting to the existence of the pandemic in japan but requesting him to step aside fast so someone else can take charge. Baffling.

Posted in: IOC says no need for any drastic decisions on Tokyo Olympics See in context

The IOC is simply living in denial while skirting responsibility. Just a matter of time before reality sets in.

Japan is about the only country among G7 that's successfully fending off the Coronavirus. 

By forcing doctors not to test people with symptoms? Is that the success you're referring to?

Safe to say 'abenomics' has failed. Now if only he'd slither off into the dustheap of history, japan would be better off.

Ok Sunday Japan had over 60 cases with 107 tests, so they immediately suppressed testing to only 43 on Monday and “lowered” daily cases to 33.

Great observation.

Posted in: Doubts growing in Japan over Tokyo Olympics See in context

Ill reiterate one more time. Those speaking of postponement are day dreaming. The signed contract between those concerned stipulates cancellation NOT postponement. And the decision to do so rests solely on the IOC NOT japan. Anything else is hogwash.

 to say the company was exporting a bio agent device is nonsense.

Ahh but didn't you hear? abe will say anything to inflame inorder to deflect from the impending corona deaths and economic decline. Expect more of these stories in coming days.

Hilarious that it's still hasn't sunk in yet for these clueless louts that there can't be any olympics given the state of the planet. But seeing the state of the country and how decision making happens at snail pace, can't say I'm shocked.
