Posted in: Trump sees limits of presidency in avoiding blame for virus See in context

Doubt it, as bad as Biden is, like Sanders didn’t win and all you liberals said he would, Biden won’t win either, he’s just not there anymore,

whether you support Sanders or not , he just wasn't winning enough at the polls, and he just keep falling behind. He wasn't forced out by all the Hillary conspiracies people still play today, it's almost mathematically impossible for him to continue.

46% on handling this virus, that’s very good news for the President.

Bush was at 90% after 911, then fell to 25% when he left. This pandemic isn't over yet, All Trump has left is pass the blame, economy and unemployment is only going downhill from here. 10 million unemployed and angry relatives of the dead will likely vote come November

Posted in: WHO head defends handling of coronavirus pandemic against Trump criticism See in context

The WHO didnt become active on this threat until 11 March.

BS、 WHO declared emergency of international concern on 31s December

meanwhile Trump was downplaying the virus until early March, did not start mass testing until mid march.

Countries that are doing the best started acting in January。

A live webcam shows a nearly deserted Shibuya crossing at lunchtime. How does that support your assertion?

it takes at 80% of the population to quarantine before you see a notice difference in infection, do people really think 80% of Japanese are following this emergency

 Why are Nagoya and Osaka, as well, not on the list? Stupid.

Seven regions are covered by the month-long declaration: Tokyo, Chiba, Kanagawa, Saitama, Osaka, Hyogo and Fukuoka prefectures.

Pay my mortage my other out goings , my business expenses, running costs, staffs commissions, pension, investments , sons university fees,

well go ahead keep making that money and roll the dice, if your in a higher age bracket and catch the virus then you have a much higher chance of dying from the virus. be difficult to pay for your sons Uni fees of your dead, worse still you could be asymptomatic and spread it to a member of your family who then dies.

Posted in: 'Escape from Tokyo' hot topic ahead of state of emergency See in context

Better to isolate in isolation than in a giant Petri dish. Family first.

until somebody family member is infected and then spreads it to the rural areas they escape to, as far as I know rural people still have to shop for food. panic and exodus is what makes pandemics.....pandemics.

Trump stopped flights from China the day after the WHO declared Corona a pandemic. Did Abe do that?

did Trump stop AMericans infected returning home or forcing then in mandatory quarantine, FOX and Trump were still downplaying this virus at the beginning of March. This downplaying is why its turning into the slaughter of American civilians you see now. these deaths are on the hands of the cult 45.

 I am afraid of the coronavirus, but we are reaching our limit living like this," she said.

and what will your limits be if your kid is infected then comes home and infects another family member!.

when your families health is on the line you'll be surprised what limits people will go to.

This is beyond stupid anybody who thinks its a good idea sending kids back to school as virus cases are speeding up is an idiot

This whole thing is so dang fishy. People falling for it hook, line and sinker.

It's a tragedy.

ok if its so fishy they maybe you should volunteer your time in caring for the sick, if the infected is all a hoax then you have nothing to worry about. Goodluck

Signing for the receipt of a package is just simply increasing the chance of transferring the Virus.

Posted in: Australia optimistic over slowing virus spread; urges vigilance See in context

Well, considering that quite a few people in Australia continue to defy shelter in place orders, there must be another reason for the downturn in infection rate.

and the police are coming down hard on those not complying , fining people and checking bac at their home address for compliance, one business was fined $10000 for having customers in their restaurants.

meanwhile back in Japan cherry blossoms parties are fun

What would you suggest? Looking forward to more pearls of wisdom from you.

and what if the virus hits your workplace and infects you or others, are you still going to work or quarantine yourself. Remember this virus has a high number of asymptomatic infected

Posted in: Essential services to run in Tokyo even in state of emergency: Koike See in context

unfortunately its going to take a drastic rise in the number of dead japanese before anybody takes this virus seriously , and yes I mean office workers also,everybody, its takes at least 80% of the population to quarantine at home for at least 2 weeks. If authorities continue to drag their feet the pandemic will make the last earthquake pale in comparison in terms of the dead. Driving to the supermarket today and i still saw people in the park under the cherry blossoms. the ignorance is breathtaking. Viruses love ignorance and time

Posted in: Under pressure, UK government promises 100,000 daily coronavirus tests See in context

US, they were relying on herd immunity.

yep herd immunity takes about a 60% infection rate, 200 million Americans, covid19 mortality rate at about 1% , that's were you get the 2 million dead estimates from. Does Trump or any other political ideology really think this is a price worth paying!?

Interesting fact SK and the US both reported their first case ofthe virus on Jan19 Korea moved swiftly , with large testing social distancing and quaranteen. Result was an infection rate mortality rate and flattening of their curve much lower than the US UK France Italy, the same countries whos response was too slow

Oh well. looks like some people are gonna have to do without toilet paper longer than they thought.

actually no my local Welcia is stacked to the roof with toilet paper now.

If you want to ship it overseas that's fine also as long as you dont want to send it to the countries on the list, USA UK Australia, Canada China Germany Finland are still accepting and delivering mail from Japan,

yes I know as my good friend exports over 3000 items a month,not toilet paper, Fedex DHL UPS are also still operating as normal.

Don’t tell me you believe in that fairytale too!?

well the scientist will tell you how long a virus can live on cardboard plastic steel etc

love to see your scientific proof that the coronavirus is spread by collecting parcels, if it was even remotely true the whole country would have the virus by now, all thos government letters bills etc etc

and like I stated just wash your hands after you've collected a parcel or been out shopping and you'll be fine

Posted in: Japan Post to temporarily stop accepting international mail due to coronavirus See in context

Makes No sense whatsoever! So what about the post coming from Tokyo will everyone else be protected and not allowed to receive mail that area since that’s ground zero for the virus? Jus sayin’........

when receiving mail domestically while the risks are low just treat it as normal after youve opened and handles the box and or signed the delivery guys label/ barcode reader, wear a mask, wash your hands inside.

Posted in: Japan Post to temporarily stop accepting international mail due to coronavirus See in context

its not a virus problem its a airfreight problem, some smaller countries post offices have been scaled back in staff because of the virus, countries not on the list have the highest level of air freight to and from Japan,

US UK Germany France Australia Canada China etc

Japan post simply doesnt have enough of their own planes to carry all the mail, companies like DHL Fedex UPS TNT etc are all flying flatout , trying to take up the surplus, but not even they can do it all, which is why theyve suspended certain countries. If it was a virus problem they would have blocked China USA France long ago

Posted in: Tokyo extends event cancellations, facility closures to May 6 See in context

500 cases in a city with a population of over 9 million.

1 person can infect 2.5 people very easily, do the math

the US, 15 said to be 0, turned into 120000 within a matter of weeks.

Japan could turn sth real quickly, yet we still have all these people that think the virus is being overstated.

Viruses love ignorance and time

Posted in: Australian police put a 90-day limit on draconian virus measures in NSW See in context

then the draconian measures would not have been needed.

so call draconian measures , like aggressive testing, social distancing and quarantining is working in Australia, NZ , Singapore. So yes draconian measure do and have proven to work. China and India are taking excessive measure and now their curves are on downwards trend. Countries that are have not acted quickly enough Italy France USA UK are all paying for it now, lets pray Japan doesn't fail also.

If Australians were doing such a 'great job,' then the draconian measures would not have been needed.

and yet their curves have flattened out in many states, WA number of cases actually dropping, NZ Singapore are also doing much better than most countries, you can find these stats online also
