  1. 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.

  2. #coronavirusreports @https://coronavirus-reports.com/home

    Total Cases: 97,876, Total Deaths: 3,347, Total Regions: 166

  3. Shibuya crossing may have looked relatively busy, but that's a fraction of the normal crowds. It's even more striking considering this is the height of cherry blossom season and all the tourism that comes with it.

  4. South Korea has drive through testing while America doesn't even have enough test for everyone.. What a failure by this administration.

  5. Only IDIOT'S would gather IN MASSES to Gaulk at NOTHING. VERY FOOLISH DECISIONS. I THOUGHT JAPANESE WERE MUCH MORE INTELLIGENT THAN WHAT IM SEEING HERE

  6. You would think all these people would be quarantine by now. But they are just going about their business like nothing is wrong. And btw that reporter should be quarantine and tested when she gets back to the States.

  7. She conveniently forgot to report that Japan’s testing number so far is 1/40th of South Korea’s. Hokkaido alone might have several thousand infected walking around but of course, no testing, no number!

  8. 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!

  9. 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….

  10. just bought a samurai sword , the sharpest one i could find at the wet market to fight the corona and friends …….

  11. 2:12 Tell me about it. When I got my kidney transplant in 2017 It was springtime and yes, very hard to wear a mask when hot out. I had to wear a mask for months. 🙏💚 Pray for the transplant patients who are taking immuno-suppressants.

  12. Those Japanese people going to parks for cherrry blossom during the outbreak? That's just really crazy and…dumb.

  13. Can u possibly be any dumber then these reporters. Your infected stay there and recover. The US made a huge mistake letting people come back they should have quarantined them at the nearest US air force base and kept them there.

  14. 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.

  15. Corona spreads in Korea because of STUPID LEADER, president Moon Jae in..he is chinese spy, not an korea president.

  16. I live in Japan.
    lot’s of Japanese always wear masks before Covid19 appeared,some people for hay fever,some for not getting their throat dried,some for hiding their faces without make-up

  17. Why isnt tokyo or certain parts if japan under lock down or quarantine they cannot allow people to move around like that that is not social responsibility at all. They should shut down all hot zone for 2 weeks at least

  18. 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

  19. It does cost money btw, It's about $135 (160,000 KRW). But, if you have contacted with any coronavirus patients, it is free.

  20. You only live once. Coronavirus outbreak spreads across the world! KN95 Masks Supply, Limited quantity. Highest Quality, Worldwide Shipping. Email: wowwowboard # gmail.com Whatsapp: +86 18650670288

  21. Korea: to prevent the virus from spreading in the world
    China : to stop the information for the virus from spreading in the world
    Japan : to prohibit the virus from testing in the world especially in Japan

  22. 主播牛逼不怕死啊 应该这样不戴口罩去武汉方舱医院采访一下

  23. GODS LET THERE BE LIGHT = ARCHONS CONSTRUCTING OUROBOROS = MATRIX = HUMAN VIRTUAL 3 DIMENSIONAL 5 SENSE REALITY THUS WE HUMANS ARE BLINDED BY THIS LIGHT. SPEED OF LIGHT IS THE WALLS OF THIS MATRIX BEYOND WHICH IS MULTI DIMENSIONAL INFINITE AND ETERNAL REALITY.

    GLOBAL FLOOD = SIEGE, TAKE OVER AND SECLUSION  OF HUMANS ACTUAL MULTI DIMENSIONAL INFINITE AND ETERNAL REALITY BY ARCHONS = FALLEN ANGELS WHICH RESULTED IN HUMANS FALL.

    NOAHS ARK = ARCHONTIC LABORATORY DURING THIS TAKE OVER IN WHICH HUMANS AND ANIMALS WERE COLLECTED AND GENETICALLY MODIFIED ON IMMENSE SCALE, ARCHONTIC SOFTWARE PROGRAMMES WERE INSTALLED AND NATURAL HUMAN DNA GENETICS = CAPABILITIES WERE INVERTED AND DEACTIVATED WHICH AT PRESENT SCIENCE REFERS TO JUNK DNA. GODS BEHOLD ADAM HAS BECAME ONE OF US SO BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY ON EARTH = ARCHONS HAVE INSTALLED SEED OF EVIL = EVIL SOFTWARE PROGRAMME INTO HUMANS DNA = GENETIC MODIFICATION WHICH HAS MADE HUMANS ONE OF ARCHONS HUMANS ARE DIRECTED TO MULTIPLY EVIL WITHIN THIS 3 DIMENSIONAL 5 SENSE REALITY.

    BECAUSE ARCHONS = FALLEN ANGELS = ANNUNAKI FAILED TO EITHER HARNESS OR DEACTIVATE HUMAN CONSCIENCE ENTIRELY SO THEY STARTED HUMAN FARMING STRIP MINING OF THE LAND AND NATURE AROUND US HUMANS SINCE THEN THROUGH THEIR CHILDREN = NON HUMAN ELITE FAMILIES TO HARNESS OUR CONSCIENCE BY CONFINING HUMANS WITHIN THIS VIRTUAL 3 DIMENSIONAL 5 SENSE REALITY  FULL OF LOW FREQUENCY VIBRATIONAL ENERGY SECLUDING HUMANS FROM THEIR ACTUAL MULTI DIMENSIONAL INFINITE AND ETERNAL REALITY FULL OF ALL LOVE AND ALL LIFE THAT THERE IS AND EVER CAN BE BECAUSE THESE ENTITIES CANT HARNESS OUR CONSCIENCE BY FORCE UNLESS WE HUMANS SURRENDER IT TO THEM SO HUMANS WERE ONLY LEFT TO EXPERIENCE VIRTUAL 3 DIMENSIONAL 5 SENSE REALITY. 

    ARCHONS = FALLEN ANGELS AND THEIR CHILDREN = NON HUMAN ELITE FAMILIES = BLUE BLOODLINES ARE DEVOID OF SPIRITUAL CONSCIENCE THAT WE HUMANS ARE WHICH IS INFINITE AWARENESS ETERNAL CONSCIOUSNESS THEREFORE ARCHONS = FALLEN ANGELS AND THEIR CHILDREN = NON HUMAN ELITE FAMILIES SET OUT ON THE MISSION OF HARNESSING OUR CONSCIENCE NOT SOULS = GODS OUR BATTLE IS NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD BUT AGAINST MORAL VALUES BECAUSE WE HUMANS ARE ONLY ACTUALLY ALIVE AND CONNECTED TO OUR INFINITE ETERNAL CONSCIOUSNESS THROUGH OUR HEARTS = CONSCIENCE.

    WE HUMANS ARE ACTUALLY ALIVE AS LONG WE STAY CONNECTED TO OUR HIGHER, INFINITE AND ETERNAL CONSCIOUSNESS THROUGH OUR CONSCIENCE. HUMANS THAT DO EVIL DEEDS SURRENDER THEIR CONSCIENCE THUS BECOME LIVING DEAD AS THEY ARE NOT ALIVE AT THE SAME TIME NOT COMPLETELY DEAD BECAUSE THEY STILL HAVE THEIR SOULS AND WHEN THEIR SOULS LEAVE THEIR BODIES THEN THEY DIE COMPLETELY AND THEIR CONTAMINATED CONSCIENCE GET USED BY ARCHONS TO CREATE BIONIC HUMAN CLONES = ARCHONTIC AGENTS.

  24. 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%

  25. see crowded street
    Media: are they doing enough to contain the virus?
    see empty city
    Media: we need to make sure the economy would not be affected. Life should take place as usual but with caution!
    🙄🙄🙄

  26. "Dumbfounded Community Infection W/Out a Cause" = Work of Chinese Army/Spy in each country. Chinese economy's been hit hard & Xi doesn't want to die alone but rather take everybody else with him.

  27. South Korea 43 deaths compared to Japan only 6 deaths.
    Isn't South Korea doing better at taking care of the virus? Japan can't hide the number of death even if they can hide the number of infections. Somebody, please tell me why.

  28. 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.
    WHO is helping the Chinese communist government because of money subsidy.

  29. In Korea, more than 210000 people have tested and 6593 have been confirmed.

    Korea have tested the most people in the world. And more cases will come out because Korean government suggests citizens to take a test if they suspect Corona-19, even a small symptom.

  30. Japanese became crazy and ignorant by their government irresponsible for this pandemic crisis. Korea is taking this very seriously. Anyway, God bless both countries.

  31. Japan keep hiding how much severe the situation is. that's why citizens walking in the town with no wearing a mask n still busy on the streets

  32. other countries doesnt have a capablity of testing coronavirus like korea. ive been reading articles about how CDC and other scientists are using data from Korea.

  33. I'm Korean and i live in Seoul. In Korea, Everyone really be careful each other. And not just only government but also every people trying to fight against Coronavirus. When we go outside we must have mask, Walk at distance from each other, You can easily find hand sanitiwer on bus or subway. It's so hard get Mask in here but we donate for the doctors and nurses who fight on the front line and who live in Daegu.(There are more 6.000 people infected in Daegu Becaus of certain pseudo- religion) Even economy is getting tough becaus of Cononavirus. Mark, Water, Food, Money, ect.. we are donating voluntarily even a small amount as we can. Already we tested over 165.000 people and we found 6.593people who sick becaus of Coronavirus. I'm totally find now. but if i feel sick then i can have test everytime and it's pay for just $150(160.000won). Not just only Korean even foreigner. And we can get information as soon as possible. So we can keep our daily life(although with the Mask) Of couse, I'm afraid of this vairus but i belive that we can overcome. I think the most important thing is Everyone have to fight together. And I'm really proud of my country now. And my major is Japannese studies so i usually watch the NEWs from Japan. I think Japanese government is just avoiding checkup because of the Olympics. I know Olympics is a big deal and important. but I hope Japanese government more care about the health of Japanese people more than Olympics. I'm sorry if you can't understand what i say becuase of my Engilsh skill.

  34. Japan is simply not testing.
    Japan will probably get new Coronaviruses, Italy's much more deadly strain will spread in Japan
    "BREAKING: Italy reports 778 new cases of coronavirus and 49 new deaths, raising total to 4,636 cases and 197 dead"

  35. Korea president is a Chinese Communist Party's slave. He does nothing for Korean people and only does testing rapidly.
    It's not for Korean. Evil president, Moon Jae-in, just wanna prove that Corona virus is not China's fault. He doesn't care even Korean people has been sacrificing and dying.

  36. By March 6, 2020, South Korea has tested 164,740 people. They can test upto 20,000 people a day. The test results are 15,000to 18,000 per day this week. And there are no cost for individuals. Japan has tested 8,111 people by March 4. How many people got tested United States ? Anyone knows?

  37. China : Full media blackout by the communist party
    Japan : Stupid disinfection policy + media blackout by Abe Shinzo
    Korea : Transparent and exposed measures by whole korean
    This is a clear lessons-learned what we take action

  38. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/muslims-japan-government-surveillance-top-court-green-lit-islamaphobia-a7109761.html%3famp

    Blanket surveillance?  Boycott Japan today

  39. So she's seriously going around travel in the most affected countries…. nice job NBC. It's not like there are locals that could've reported the same thing. She's probably not gonna quarentine herself.

  40. Here is the recent stat from korean CDC. Tested case numbers: February 29-14,743 /March 1-11,292/March 2-12,606/March 3-16,260/March 4-10,856/March 5-9,834/ March 6-18,199. Out of all those tested, 44 death many of whom were the vulnerable patients of the enclosed psychiatric hospital in DauGu, the epicenter of clustered transmission. I have been closely following this nasty virus phenomenon (sadly). Not just major news media like BBC, TIMES, CNN etc., Dr. John Campbell's and peak prosperity channel on YouTube with more than a quarter million followers all highly praise the way South Korea is handling this. From a public health perspective, SK is setting an example for sure!

  41. Japanese people are much more nervous about hygiene management than other countries. At elementary school they are educated to wash hands and gargle every time before eating lunch or when they are back home. They have custom to wear mask since 1934 not to affect other people when they catch cold. Since EDO period , Japanese people take a bath almost every day. They made Washlet , papers are flushed down the toilet , sanitizing goods are everywhere in the store.
    It's probaly one of the reasons why outbreaks have been barely prevented.

  42. I am surprised that she wore a mask for “social reason”, because here in the US all media is strongly suggesting people not wearing masks.

  43. Currently, about 1,000 people are infected in Japan. Of them, 700 are passengers of the Diamond Princess. Other than that, there are 300 infected people. Two hundred of them are already cured. They are still in control after full treatment. Why does mass media take on the threat of coronavirus at the same level as normal flu in both lethal and infectious? Because the mass media's products are 'FEAR' .

  44. NBC YOU ARE FUNNY. Since you purchased billions of broadcasts right for the Tokyo Olympic and show the good side of Japan like cherry blossom and wedding while you introduce Seoul as a ghost town. I'm telling you Korea and Japan are in both serious conditions but Korea has come up with better results (*South Korea has tested 140,000 people and the death rate is just 0.6%). Abe and the Japanese govt were just focused on hiding facts for their election and the Olympic

  45. Japan's No. 1 priority in terms of tourism has been bringing more Chinese tourists to their land for the past few years up to the Olympics. They've been bragging about the number of Chinese visiting their country up to Feb. If you have a reasonable mind, you should be suspicious about the number of death with the coronavirus; you should be more suspicious about WHY the government is not doing more testing; you should look into credible authorities telling Japan to work on more testing; you should see others being seriously concerned about holding the Olympics in Japan. Enlighten yourself or simply die with Abe.

  46. Japan is actually more serious than Korea. Tokyo may not want to let it know, but there will already be more confirmed cases in Japan than in Korea.

  47. 80% of people are mildly ill with corona and can be cured in about 5 days.
    ↓
    A full examination reveals mildly ill patients.
    ↓
    They have to be isolated even if they are mild.
    ↓
    A severely ill person dies without being hospitalized.

    Korea did this, but quickly changed to Japanese style. Japan has very few deaths due to restrictions on testing.

  48. 日本ではマスクをしてください。症状がなくても感染していることもあります。だから、全員が人に感染させないことに気を使ってください。咳やくしゃみのマナーは当然ですが、話す時も大きな声で勢いよく話すと飛沫が飛びます。今、日本では、多くの人が無意識のうちに人に飛沫を飛ばしてしまわないように気をつけて生活しています。そして手洗や消毒も頻繁に行っています。日本にきた時には、みなさんもご協力ください。

  49. Finally, Japan🇯🇵 made decision that people arriving from Mainland China 🇨🇳 and South Korea 🇰🇷 to be quarantined for two weeks at designated facilities in Japan 🇯🇵 to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
    Japan government is not very smart and they still continue to open border from Mainland China 🇨🇳 and South Korea 🇰🇷.
    Why Japan 🇯🇵? Common sense!!!

  50. skoreans forget to mention the nkorea situation while they make a fuss to Japan. The peninsula must be butt on fire now..
