Posted in: Ignore the coronavirus hysteria – now's the perfect time to visit Japan because airfares are cheap, there are less crowds and the chance of being infected with the virus is low. Do you agree? See in context
Living your life in fear is no way to live. Be smart, wash your hands often, where a mask if you think that you need to, but don't buy in to all the fear-mongering going on in most media outlets. I read a news article that said 85% of those infected do not even know it. They are not sick or showing any symptoms. Bottom line, just be smart and use common sense.

There has never been a precedent set for such a crisis. It is so easy for others to criticize, but do they have a better alternative? The answer is no. I thought that it was handled quite well as they prevented infected individuals from passing along the virus to those in the country. Sure, it was unpleasant for those stuck on the ship, but I think they can understand the severe risks involved.

I would find it hard to show compassion toward these men. As stated in another comment, they are "fishing" in illegal waters and are common thieves. I realize that people in North Korea have hardly anything, but why don't they dock in South Korea and ask for sanctuary? Instead, they steal from Japan and as far as the one with the stomach ache, what if he is carrying an extremely deadly disease that his own government infected him with??? (scary thought). Send them back to where they came from...
