Japan PM Abe seeks citizens' help in coronavirus fight as Olympics to go ahead
Japan 's government plans to create a fund to help companies pay subsidies t...2 Min Read TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan’s government plans to create a fund to help companies pay subsidies to workers who need to take days off to look after their children while schools are closed, the Nikkei business daily reported on Saturday, without citing sources. The move comes after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Thursday asked local authorities to shut schools from Monday in a bid to curb the spread of the coronavirus. This means students will be out from Monday at least until the new academic year starts in early April, prompting Japanese parents, along with teachers and businesses, to scramble to find new ways to live and work. Abe is expected to explain how the government will cope with impact of the closure of schools at a media briefing scheduled for Saturday, the report said. Japan also aims to pass legislation that would allow local governments to control the usage of public facilities as another measure to prevent the spread of the virus during the ongoing parliament session, the report said. Infections from the virus in Japan have topped 200, with five deaths - including one on Friday of a man in his seventies. That excludes more than 700 cases and five more deaths from the quarantined cruise liner Diamond Princess, docked in Yokohama.

Madness! Sorry to the athletes but the Olympics is a distant/irrelevant matter for many in Japan right now. People are still being REFUSED for testing despite their drs requests to the public health center. The infected numbers are likely MUCH higher Covering up is ALWAYS Abe's tactic They set these parallel flight routes over Tokyo ignoring people protesting and they are also planning another parallel one 1km away, without any compensation.
安倍晋三は名誉や利益のために闘っています。決して国民のためではなく内閣府のためです。 日本の制度は全て内閣府、大企業、高所得者の為に出来ています。国民の意思は全く含まれていません。 ほとんどの日本人が洗脳され、日本の制度は理不尽だと理解してないです。 大問題です。 安倍首相はオリンピック開催国として、早期に対策し封じ込めに尽力すべきだったのに、首相自身と首相に近い人達のスキャンダルの収拾に追われ、新型コロナウィルスの感染拡大対策は、完全に時期を逸してしまった。 ＃Abeyamero Inside of the cruise ship'Diamond Princess'.

Please think about that how many people would be infected Money is not so important!

オリンピック開催の為に検査数をわざと少なくして感染者数を少なく見積もっている。安倍さんはオリンピックの経済的効果しか見えてない。 Abe’s poor, unfaithful responding to the “press conference”should be added. He only read his empty draft using prompters, read answers to prepared questions from designated reporters and ended the only 30 minute “press conference”, leaving a lot of questions unanswered.
Good luck with that... Get your Scientific minds to create a vaccine pronto Abe! He keeps the infected people secret without checking. If victims appear at the Olympics, he will do the same things. ☆A little bit malicious title. Do you hope to hold it in London? This is just plain stupid. I think I will refuse it. What should be given priority to is our lives.
Thoton This prime minister should not be swallowed by the bad policy. Everything you do and do is a round throw. PM Abe is eager to avoid his political responsibilities if the Olympics are canceled. The Abe administration's anti-virus measures are all slow and ad hoc. So crazy!
Coronavirus: United cancels Japan flights as outbreak spreads - Business InsiderUnited just slashed its flights to Japan and other parts of Asia, showing how quickly coronavirus fears are hurting new airline and travel markets outside of China Perhaps these places should refrain from eating everything under the sun? Even now, China hasn't fully banned the use of wildlife. The world needs to put pressure on them to stop this BS Selfish
That is ridiculous. They should wait and see. Well that was a big mistake to hold people on the cruise quarantined. They just infected each other more then should be. 98.6 not fact of corona virus infection. 日本不能做鸵鸟了，赶快行动起来否则奥运会真的要错过了！ trump will send the paper towels Look I understand that a lot of time,money and preparation has gone into the affair,but these are people's lives at stake.

Coronavirus flight cuts on the rise: United reduces service to Japan, Singapore, SeoulThe airline had previously suspended flights to China and Hong Kong. The new flight changes follow a steep drop in demand for Asia travel. To be expected, still suprised its that high thought. To me, United treats customers a lot like discount air lines now with high prices. Well you have halted most of them anyhow!
