I think the overreaction is coming from you.
Kids still can go to school.
People can still go to work.
Limit gatherings up to 10 people in Auckland. Up to 100 in other cities.Wear a mask on public transportation.
It all seems reasonable during these tough times of COVID-19. Better to be safe than sorry.

"Benny the Demon" (Nickname given by Hong Kong people)
No, the nickname is used by CCP sympathizers such as yourself.
Don't insinuate that Hong Kongers call him this. Benny Tai is a well respected academic in Hong Kong who has spend nearly 30 years with the University of Hong Kong.
He has mentioned that he doesn't blame the university for his firing, but that authorities above the university have pushed for the decision. And we all know who that authority is!!!
Ganbare Hong Kongers!!

@ Steve Anderson ( or actually my highly educated chinese friend)
Good try Steve !! But I won't play this ping pong game of words with a mouthpiece of the CCP.
US of terror - You wrote this 4 times, you must hate the USA.
Terrorists of Hong Kong - No one in the media uses this term except the CCP.
left out the part where China attacked and occurred, brutally, Japan. - Maybe you were too angry to notice your mistake.
Australia is the yapping lapdog of the US of Terror. - Wow, all this rude name calling!! You are an angry person. It's very Wolf Warrior Diplomacy-like!!!!

It is unwise for you to say anything as most of what you write doesn't make any sense!!
You fail to recognize that your own country, the middle kingdom, is disrupting peaceful harmony globally with its aggressive, selfish and unfair behavior in many places around the world.
Shall I point out a few?
Trade relations with the US
Trade and racism relations with Australia
Bullying of Taiwan
South China Sea disputes with Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and more countries
Broken promises to the people of Hong Kong
Territorial claims with India
Territorial claims with Japan
Trade disputes with the EU
Discrimination of Africans in Southern Chinaand more. . . .
You can search online about any of the listed topics through a variety of international media outlets except the notorious Global Times.

Well, you are free to believe that so many are unemployed! But as the article suggests:
Prospects of a prolonged crisis have encouraged Japanese consumers to buy and make reusable, washable versions.
Initially, Yanai wasn't interested in jumping on the bandwagon to make masks. But because of repeated calls by consumers to make the masks using the same materials as the effective AIRism products, any company president isn't going to ignore the requests of his consumers who praises his products is he.

My wife, her 2 friends and I arrived in front of the store in Tennoji at 9:15am, there were already about 300 people there waiting. At bang on 10am, the shopping center doors opened and everyone marched in an orderly line to the mask collection counters. We were limited to one packet of 3 masks per size (S, M. L), so we got one of each, marched to the self check out counters and were done by 10:12am. When we left the store, it was surprising to see the waiting line of at least 500 people continuing outside the shopping center.
The masks are a good fit around the face and feel comfortable so far, will have a better verdict at the end of the day.

Doesn't matter, they were Japan-based reporters who wrote down the factual misrepresentation by Japanese foreign ministry.
So, your report from a Korean Government sponsored TV broadcast is more accurate than news reports from several international agencies (Reuters, Bloomberg and even the WTO website). Yeah,... right. Sounds like a page from the CCP.
Let me ask you this question. Japan took Korea to WTO to have the anti-dumping tariff on pneumatic valves overturned. The anti-dumping tariff stands as the result of WTO ruling. So who do you think won here?
Korea hasn't won, it has admitted that it still won't change it's policy even after the WTO ruling. 15 months after the ruling which will be near the end of 2020, Japan has the right to bring Korea once again to the WTO for non-compliance to the ruling and take retaliatory measures.

@ Samit Basu
"That article you linked isn't international.
Reporting by Stephanie Nebehay and Makiko Yamazaki in Tokyo
*In other word, Japan-based reporters reported simply reported what Japanese government claimed, which was factually incorrect. Japan sought to overturn the anti-dumping tariff and the *WTO validated Korea's anti-dumping tariff, hence Japan lost the WTO case."
What are you mumbling about??
Yes, Japan based reporters working for Rueters which is an international news agency based in the UK.
"Japan has never won a WTO case against Korea to date, its 0:7 so far. Make this 0:8."
Your reporting is full of holes, if you read the article and searched for any other articles from other international news agencies apart from Japan based or Korean based agencies, you would have noticed this immediately!!
Anyway, please do some research before you comment!! Saves everyone time reading FN!!!

Well....yeah, it's like, HIS press conference so he will naturally talk about himself. And if you haven't watched it then you shouldn't come on here to talk about things that have already been addressed.
Whatever. . . .dude!!
I don't need to watch a criminal address only the things that he wants you to hear. I do my homework and get my facts from various sources.

Except for the SEC part, all the other points were covered at his press conference. Did you bother looking up the video? If not, I'll get you started: the palace in Versailles he had rented out himself and paid for all the costs. As a token of gratitude, the palace offered him a free room to rent, which he took them up on.
No, I didn't watch most of the video, as he was just rambling about himself!!
Yes, he did offer to paid up after it was pointed out to him. But......
"Renault has previously signalled to French authorities suspect transactions under Ghosn, who at the peak of his powers was known for his jet-setting and luxury lifestyle.
He is suspected of hiring the entire Palace of Versailles outside Paris in October 2016 to celebrate his marriage, a benefit estimated as being worth 50,000 euros ($56,000), in exchange for a philanthropy deal between the state-owned property and Renault."

Not really!! There are many other reliable overseas outlets to get the news or facts! You just have to do your homework!!
"In explaining some of the questionable personal expenses, Mr. Ghosn used a defense common on Wall Street: He said other executives at Nissan had signed off on the transactions, which made them authorized by the company."

I agree with CitizenSmith and garypen!!
Ghosn is just a repugnant and greedy man who got caught with his hands in too many cookie jars. Now, he wants more money!
I just can't believe so many people on this website still have sympathy for the man.
Wedding at Versailles Palace and claiming he didn't realize he had to pay for it, Shady front companies using Nissan money to pay for shady services in Oman, Saudia Arabia and even used to buy his luxury homes around the world. He was even banned in the USA for 10 years by the SEC from holding any corporate executive position. Wake up and smell the coffee people!!!

Order To Do List for Ghosn.
Prove the financial misconduct charges are false (consultancy fees to sister, donations to a university in Lebanon, buying a home in Rio de Janeiro and many more ) by showing the evidence.Criticize the Japanese Judicial System.
Do task one first, stop sidetracking about how great you were in Japan and how badly you were treated after you were arrested.
More people will start to believe in you after you show proof, but for now, you are just a greedy businessman running away by criticizing a judicial system that needs to be updated!!

Same story in the Korea Herald with extra info:
During the discussion that followed, Scott Snyder, a senior fellow for Korean studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, criticized the Moon Jae-in administration for “not taking the political leadership necessary to protect the relationship with Japan from domestic political spillover, which is arguably in Japan’s longer-term strategic interest.”
“The Moon administration has yet to realize an optimal balance between domestic and foreign affairs,” Snyder said, adding that he would like to see the South Korean government paying compensation domestically to the victims of wartime forced labor while trying to pursue a dialogue with Japan.
