Problem is people just don’t care. Until they or a very close family member becomes deathly ill... everything will be okay .

We need to get these exam police in charge of traffic enforcement . More than 1 friendly reminder was enough. Now if the whole country would stop being so selfish with other’s health,. we might get on the path to containment. We can sit and nag on the govt all day and they have their fair share of responsibility. But it blows me away at the utter lack of concern for others here. Peaceful blah blah blah.

What’s with all of the personal attracts here? I am a “gaijin” living here. 10 years and counting. While I completely agree with wearing a mask, there are many things business owners, the govt, and the general population should be doing a much better job at. Start by not being so selfish rather it be financial or lack of concern about other’s health. Sorry but if a bar or restaurant can’t make it a few months with the insane profits they’ve been making over the years , shame on them. Sure it sucks to be closed but it’s better than being dead. Karaoke bars ? Hostess bars ? Shut them down . Give them a minimum amount of help. Being from California, where people are just genuinely anti anything common sense , well in my 10 years here, every year I see more people with the flu than I ever seen in my lifetime. Mask , public gargling, lack of proper hygiene, luckily this year with Covid , the general population is doing a slightly better job . If the govt wants Covid contained, they need to ramp up testing , contact tracing, and treatment ASAP . Until then, nothing changes.

Imagine if they were actually testing. I live in Iwaki, Fukushima and worse than not testing, they refuse to test. Zero test = zero cases.
