How significant is that photo.

In such times the J-politicians and ministers take a nap.

This is how our taxes are used, really hard working lawmakers.

No wonder that the situation is going out of control when a country with over 120 million people is leaded bu old cronies.

Posted in: Tokyo's infection spike after Olympic postponement sparks questions See in context

So the day after they postponed their so precious olympics the Covid-19 magically appeared in Japan as well.

Are the Japanese people really so blind to still believe to theirs masters&rulers?

Posted in: Pompeo says G7 agrees China spreading virus disinformation See in context

I’m not a fan of the current american administration and Pompeo as well but this time I fully agree with this joined statement from the G7.

My home in western europe is suffering and struggling because of the Chinese lies and the way they tried to hidden the truth to the rest of the world.

Their government is a typical communist dictatorship full of grey spots.

No wonder why they have the worldwide reputation to don’t be trusted.

They initiated all these sufferances due to their low hygiene and their sneaky dictatorship.

Italy unlike some over foreign governments that wanted to save face went through this situation seriously and tested many people and provided help.

@Akie... you seem to know how to control the virus... are you an expert??

I’ll say a perfect product of the CCP.

Just ignore.

What a sad photo,it reminds me the soviet propaganda ones which people had to pretend to smile in their forced events and with a semi-desert audience.

Posted in: Expert panel discourages large gatherings, recommends reopening some schools See in context

so basically in every developed countries Europe/North America we’re dealing responsibly with imposing measure of quarantine and safety and here in Japan they rather suggest to don’t assemble or gather in public places.

The official numbers of infected in Italy is high due to the government willing to test people unlike in Japan.

But the good thing even in a national newspaper of my country they mention how the Abe and his government is basically the only one trying to fake numbers in order to save their so precious olympics.

And I’m 100% positive that this infection is already spreading in the developing countries but unlike Europe and North America they don’t have the instruments to test and neither the facility.

Posted in: Japan testing for coronavirus at fraction of capacity See in context

We shouldn’t be surprised by the level of hypocricy,censorship's and stubborness of this government fully controlled by over reactionary senior old boys willing to display their “Samurai” power to the mass and save face in front of the world.

Countries like Italy deserve praise for being honest at first to itself and to the world community unlike these crones in Tokyo.

I wish him a prompt recovery.

We’re in the middle of a world pandemic that even didn’t reach it’s pike and they’re still willing to do this Olympic thing.

The Euro football cup was postponed by one year,why can’t they do the same.

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

These guys at the IOC are vultures with a deep attachment on money rather than care to the health of the world population and athletes.

In Europe and America they responsibly shut every main sport event,even at the cost of the loss of billions of Euros and Dollars.

Shame on the IOC.

Posted in: Abe says G7 supports 'complete' Games, but polls back postponement See in context

Interesting how he can claim this because in Europe they are cancelling the Euro cup and all the national football leagues are suspended as well.

In a radio of my country they also stated that postpone the olympics by a year or two would be the most logic and safe measure,for the common people and athletes as well.

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

The government of Japan must prioritize the health and safety of it’s people above all,even the so called “honour”

And I stopped answering to the chinese person with a fictional japanese name already months ago.

Big mouth,high presumption and vulgarity are the three factors of such element.

I would suggest to the others to simply downvote and even don’t waste time in reply to him/her.

The world is struggling with this pandemia and all they can do is to think to their selfish Olympic games?

The Chinese really gave us a nice present.

Posted in: SoftBank's Son criticized for offering free coronavirus tests See in context

So basically this guy want to offer something to the people for free which might help to understand better the gravity of the infection spread among the population but then some media attack him?

Feels like they want to cover the gravity of the situation due to the upcoming olympics and the economy.

Meanwhile around the globe many important events are cancelled or going to be soon and then you get these old cronies caring only about the money.

Posted in: WHO declares coronavirus crisis a pandemic See in context

If only China was honest from the very beginning with the world community this pandemic could have be probably contained in a better way or even prevented to travel so extensively through continents.

All their lies,poor hygiene and negations brought the world on it’s knee.

For the WHO,it is clearly an empty shell as the U.N.

It is because the Italian government tested more people and keep testing them unlike the Japanese government.

Saving face and honour in the eyes of the world for them is more important rather to release the truth and speak about it’s dark points in history in order to improve.

What a mess,to make such a drastic decision to close all schools should have been supported with a solid alternative like free daycares or even support all the workers that will get their finances cut due to this sudden move.

The whole situation was poorly handled from the beginning.

Nothing new in this regard,Japan notoriously was never good at handle any kind of situation for the foreign community,and never will until it changes it’s mindset.

Lebano is a sovereign nation and it gave s proper answer to the Japanese counterpart.

Besides as gogogo mentioned,they made it all sound a whole country Vs an individual.

Governments should care of real problems like a broken economy and the spread of viruses rather than try to save “honour” and face.

Posted in: Abe says gov't ready to protect economy from coronavirus impact See in context

The Italian government decided to cut taxes and bills for 2 months for the people living in the area that is quarantined and can’t work.

Why this Abe and his cronies make such rules to protect all the citizens that will partially or complete lose job for a month?

So many urges,so many words and in the end the common people in Japan always suffer.

A very poor leadership.

Another urge? Seriously?

How about to make some concrete laws as the Italian PM did.

Posted in: Japan to ban entry by foreigners who have visited Daegu See in context

Japan is clearly avoiding concrete and drastic remedies in order to don’t lose face among the international community and to to don’t lose the Olympics.

The actual government cares more of these things.

So the real numbers of the infected won’t officially be disclosed to us.

On the other hand I admire how the Italian prime minister Conte,the centre-left government and even the oppositions are taking drastic measures to contain the virus.

You have a solid point Marcelito.

marcelitoToday  10:46 am JST

Japan reported 12 cases

Korea reported 231 on same day

Italy reported 27 cases on the same day

Those are facts.

It looks Japan is doing a good controlling the spread.

Well, as usual you,re not speakingwisdom much under another new name here.....

Japan is doing a good job controlling the spread?...yeah, mean like releasing 23 passengers from the ship without being tested prior to release?....or like letting the passengers take public transport home, like the infected obaachan from Tochigi spreading the virus on public transport? Great job indeed, your LDP bosses are super efficient at crisis management ( or really its just media managment , no one without rocks in their head believes that there are only 160 odd non ship cases in Japan ). Back to you our always namechanging friend

That we know of. See the logic failure in assuming that the 12 reported cases are the only cases?

Japan reported 12 cases

Korea reported 231 on same day

Italy reported 27 cases on the same day

Those are facts.

It looks Japan is doing a good controlling the spread.

Number of deaths

Japan 3

Korea 8

Italy 7

It looks like Japan is also doing a better job taking care of those who get infected.

Back to you

The difference is that the Italian government acted very diligently,they quarantined all the area in the north east part of the country,stopping every public activity and cultural and sports event,even closing churches and museums.

And this was decided in less than 3 hours from the outbreak.

We can believe and trust the Italian government in numbers,not so much the Japanese.

Arrogance,incompetence and the non willingness to listen to other countries advices due to stubbornness brought us to this situation.

And now as usual the deep bows,the apologies etc.

This shows how to not handle such situation,the international community is rising doubts about the effectiveness of how the Japanese government handled the whole situation.
