    Trump's Fox interview:
    "I think the 3.4% number is really a false number. Now this is just my hunch, which I am basing on my gut, because my bowels are like my 4th sense. I have tremendous bowels by the way. So a lot of people may have this virus, but their symptoms will be mild. And a lot of people may die from this virus, but their deaths will be mild as well."

    The reporter is crazy! You see health care workers in full suits with fitted masks and googles testing patients. She is bopping around the city with basically a tissue on her face. What does she not understand by highly contagious disease? This isn't like the flu, governments don't build hospitals in a week or buy hotels to use as hospitals or shut down cities if this was just the flu! I hope they quarantine her when she returns to the U.S. !

  • Reply Jennifer Ignacio March 5, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    That is typical in japan. We wear mask when we have cold or coughing. Or especially when its spring or fall with people who have allergy. That's everyday life in japan so that isn't surprising unless you are a tourist and don't know the Japanese living.

    You reporting was not accurate for the 40-older demographic. I am a teacher and live near Kobe, Japan. Most of the people in your video were young 20s and 30s, they are not as afraid. Families with children are being very, very careful, since they will be shamed in their neighborhoods if they take their kids out too much after the government telling us to stay in, and not go to school. In my neighborhood most children are now not going outside, their parents do not want to be blamed if the virus spreads in their neighborhoods. (Children are more often carriers and spread to older people). I am in my 50s, people my age are not going to restaurants and cafes, just riding bikes and walking outdoors. So it depends on your demographic for what you might do. I have gone to open air cafes with no people. My students are all at home, but some were caught going to a karaoke booth, still wearing their uniforms! The school was called and the families….all 1500 of them got admonished! Namba-in Osaka is a ghost town…look on the Namba Cam and compare it to a month ago!

    South Korea is testing 7,000~8,000 people per day and completed testing a total of 140,000 people so far, and the test & treatment is free to all citizens. South Korea has been aggressively testing and saving datas ever since the first case happened. The thing about Japan is that Japan simply does not test in fear of the cancellation of the Tokyo olympic this coming sumner. Japan's population is 2.5 times more than Korean population but Japan is only testing about 900 people per day. The Japanese government is so afraid of testing their citizens bcz the more they test the more the number of infected people is going to increase. The biggest goal & agenda for the Japanese government right now is to hold the olympic as scheduled. That is more important for the Japanese government than the coronsvirus or the lives of their citizens. It is so sad that the Japanese government prioritize the olympic over the lives of their citizens. So sad….

    If the virus really came from China, and they were traveling the world, both Korea and Japan could not be safe, of course, all over the world. As you can see in this video, Korea does the test as many as possible, and most of them are free. If they need to pay for testing will be around $100~$200. Every minute, the news announces a new death and how many people are infected and where they contacted other people and places. Elders to youngers all get information about the virus and symptoms in real-time. I really hope Japan is ok and handling it well. To me, this video seems they don't really care about the virus.

    Corona 19 only takes 15 sec to infect other victim within 2 meter radius (around 6 feet). Damages lung severely if infected therefore extremely deadly for people age above 60's and people with breathing problem. Enclosed space is worst place to be. Good luck and God bless America from Korea

    One formula for calculating the mortality rate during an outbreak is:-

    CFR = deaths / (deaths + recovered)

    with the latest data for South Korea, CFR would be:

    CFR = 42/(42+135)= 42/177=23.7% cf to Italy and once again much higher than WHO estimate of 3.4%

    South Korea is now testing the virus most actively, quickly isolating confirmed people. Korea gov't tests viruse 8 to 9 times more than Japan does. This is why there are many confirmed cases. The truth is other countries are more worried than Korea. Because other countries can't do tests quickly, there can be a large number of patients infected at once, like Iran and Italy. As U.S. government officials say, the Korean government is very transparent, but people around the world are worried that China, Iran and Japan are not transparent in their virus announcements and are making many false statements. Especially, Japan rarely checks for viruses because of the Olympics. Only if people have severe symptoms can get an examination. This is the biggest problem. Korea gov't tests and isolates confirmed people right away even they have minor symptoms.
    Everybody remembers…This Wuhan Corona virus is made in China.
