fines or imprisonment for those who defy them

How about fines for mask deniers?

Japan-U.S. alliance and to cooperate on the pandemic,

Good idea, especially because the US handled the Virus soooo well.

When asked what her full name was, she replied she didn’t know, according to police.

the woman, whose name and address have not been released.

How can you release her name, if even she don't know her name. LOL.

And for a 9 hours ride you agree to a fix price and pay in advance.

How stupid can you be to use the taxi-meter-machine.

Why didn't the taxi driver confirmed in advance that she has the money?

It is a 9 hours ride and of course that will be a huge fare.

The taxi driver should confirmed and discussed that with her in advance.

My company refuses Telework, because my boss thinks I will drink instead of working.

And here it says drinking during work is OK.

I will show this article to my boss.

@Sven Asai

you can’t forbid them drinking after 8pm while forcing or encouraging them to work from 9 to 5.

Also a very good point!

And not only from 9 to 5...you know that the Japanese mostly work from 9 to 22.

That is my question too...how is that possible if EVERYONE needs a negative test to get on the plane.

@Vreth

Going to a bar is probably the only enjoyment of their day. What kind of sense does it make to cut that out when they just spent 10-12 hours in a cramped office surrounded by people, plus the packed train to and from work.

Finally someone appears who REALLY understand the japanese mentality and knows how life in Japan is working!

Good post Vreth!

Or am I wrong?

No I was not fined.

Probably because the accident was not my fault, and I had my resident card and car insurance with me.

Or because I am a good looking Guy! Lol.

@kurisupisu

Have you ever seen foreigners penalized for not carrying their id cards or being in the wrong place at the wrong time?

In all my years in Japan, I never saw that.

A few years ago, I had a car accident and I didnt have my drivers licence on me. No problem at all.

Next day Police came to my appartement, checked my licence and thats it.

@kowaicoffee

We are talking here about punishment for refuse to be hospitalized or cooperate with contact tracing efforts.

And that counts for everyone. For foreigners AND Japanese.

And according to your post...how will you deport a Japanese National Citizen?

Why are you guys always whining how bad we foreigners are treated here in Japan.

Accept it, ignore it, laugh about it...or leave!

I dont need a study to tell me that exercise is good for my health!

But it is depend on the kind of exercise.

Too many people got injured or end up in hospital by doing the wrong exercise or overdo it. (including me!)

Especially my favourite Girls Bar.

to impose fines or even prison sentences on people who test positive for the coronavirus but refuse to be hospitalized or cooperate with contact tracing efforts.

This is Number 1 BS!

It is exactly like Burning Bush said;

Getting sick is not a crime!

How to impose fines on companies who refuse people to work from home, and force them to take a high risk for their health by using the full packed trains every day!

@nonu6976

This phenomen is already since the beginning of the Pandemic.

Yesterday many posters here scream; Wow, almost 50%.

Because it is fear mongering, they appear.

Today you will not see anyone of them.

For me, I take these reported numbers just as a guideline.

@Reckless

What a coincidence!

I went to Jolly Pasta too just a few days ago.

Best prevention against Covid in that restaurant.

Many tables have to stay free, fever was measured, hand sanitizer, going to drink bar mask was mandatory, all used tables have big separaters and all staff wear masks.

I didnt see any risk to catch Covid in that restaurant.
