  • People discriminate Chinese because of the virus right now. It's scary.

  • They should talk about the virus more in parliament.

  • I was made to carry this one today.

  • Hey guys and girls on Ask Japanese it's Cathy Cat.

  • How is the Coronavirus situation in Japan

  • and how save is it, is a question you have asked us

  • so this time we're gonna go to the streets of Tokyo an ask several Japanese people

  • what they think about it. Let's go and Ask Japanese.

  • You are not wearing masks like everyone? - I forgot mine

  • I heard they don't work that much. - They don't?

  • I heard masks are not as effective. So I left it.

  • So in Japan you are not worried about the virus?

  • We are worried... but we think we personally will be fine.

  • Are you doing any prevention measures? - Washing hands and gargling.

  • Are you wearing masks because of the Coronavirus? - Yes.

  • And you are not. - If you get it you get it. I don't care.

  • You think you are fine. - Yeah. - How is Japan doing? - I don't think its safe.

  • I want to say it's safe but... it's scary.

  • I think. - You are having a mask so...

  • I heard masks are sold out in Japan?

  • Generally they are gone but sometimes they get delivered again.

  • People wait and check continuously. If they're in stock, buy them quickly.

  • And that's how I managed to buy some for myself today.

  • I FINALLY found masks. I HAD TO buy them!

  • So generally you can't buy them? - It's really difficult. - How long did you line up>

  • One person found it, there were some Chinese people there too...

  • And then 10 people crowded around it and tried to buy it all up.

  • But the store limited it to one pack per customer so I could buy this.

  • What have you heard in the news about the coronavirus in Japan?

  • Do you trust it? - I think we have to

  • look after ourselves.

  • What's the scariest thing? - To be honest...

  • I am scared about the discrimination of Chinese people in Japan

  • The prejudices have gotten worse?

  • When people see Chinese, they only see the coronavirus.

  • My mother and her generation is saying that...

  • Humans can be scary like that.

  • Director: Same here. The older generation says things like that

  • So the older generation is pretty prejudiced?

  • Some young people say it too, but the older ones even more

  • Are the news on TV propagating that? - Yes.

  • There is no medicine, vaccine or cure for this

  • it will take a year do develop it. What shall I do when I get it?

  • I think that's scary. So I gotta try and stay save.

  • We have to avoid crowds, and I was worried about coming here today

  • You were scared? - Going to crowded places is worrying.

  • The reason for the increase of the masks is because of the virus?

  • To prevent the virus and influenza

  • Are you doing anything apart from wearing masks - This one here

  • It's an "air mask" you add it here and it supports the mask

  • It is supposed to block viruses from coming close

  • It looks like a pen. - Yeah like this

  • It contains this, you add it to your neck

  • I hope that will help. - I carry alcohol

  • disinfectant and wipes

  • When I touch something and before eating I disinfect my hands

  • and before I touch certain things.

  • You come from out of Tokyo. Are you worried in Tokyo?

  • There are more infected people in Tokyo

  • I braced myself for that - There is lots in the news

  • but what makes you the most worried? - The ship.

  • And the taxi driver that got it. It feels very close.

  • That makes me worried.

  • We have to be careful.

  • They're trying to quarantine people but...

  • In parliament there is a discussion now

  • but they are not doing a real debate about the coronavirus yet

  • and I wish they would properly address the issue in parliament.

  • I think we all need to look after ourselves too.

  • Do you think it will be able to stop the virus, even though it's cold

  • I don't know if we can stop the spread

  • They have to find out the sources of the spread now

  • Not knowing is scary.

  • You're not wearing a mask? - I don't

  • The reason why people wear masks these days... - Is the coronavirus

  • Are you worried? - I am not worried at all...

  • I am not from Tokyo you see. Where I am from...

  • the virus isn't a big deal so we don't worry.

  • Are you from far away? - Aichi prefecture. - I am visiting Tokyo

  • right now. Everyone is wearing masks. THAT made me worried.

  • In Aichi you can still buy masks. - WHAT?

  • Here you can't buy them. - Even if you wanted to. - Yeah it's crazy.

  • So the capital and countryside are different? - Yeah

  • Here are people from all round the world. I realized that.

  • The coronavirus issue is different in Tokyo.

  • Everyone is doing masks. Like that. I wasn't worried.

  • Are you trusting the news? - Not at all.

  • You thought the number of infected people is higher? - They are hiding it

  • There are more infected people than we think. At home in Aichi...

  • we had a rumor that a store had the virus

  • because we had many Chinese customers.

  • There was a rumor that one person got the virus

  • Everyone panicked. It came out it was a fluke though There was a rumor that one person got the virus

  • even though it wasn't true, nobody went to the store anymore. Everyone panicked. It came out it was a fluke though

  • even though it wasn't true, nobody went to the store anymore.

  • When people get worried, stuff happens, and that's why they keep it secret

  • Since you're both wearing masks...

  • Are you worried about the virus? - Yes there are a lot

  • of people from around the world here. You never know.

  • So just in case I feel like I have to wear these.

  • Yeah - Did you parents stop you from coming to Tokyo?

  • They gave me a disinfectant to carry.

  • and told me to use it whenever I touch something.

  • Do you think you have to do all of that?

  • You never know, I wanna do what I can.

  • Masks are sold out too. Shows that everyone is worried.

  • They are sold out, how did you buy yours?

  • In my household we got a stock of 5-6 large boxes

  • and I took one of them for today. - You are safe for a while

  • I am. - The disinfectant looked handmade?

  • They are not selling disinfectant anymore so

  • I bought this bottle and filled up some disinfectant from home

  • Can't buy it. - Not anymore.

  • I carry masks. I carry two today.

  • You have two but you're not wearing them. - Well we were

  • talking and shopping and I let my guard down. - And you?

  • Not worried? - Not much. - Not doing much - However

  • my parents cancelled their trip to Yokohama

  • because they were scared. - Any effects on you?

  • Not really. I don't feel like it has come to close to my life.

  • I don't do any preventive measures. - What will happen from now on?

  • I stayed at a hotel the other day. The staff there said...

  • that until it becomes summer

  • the number of infects won't go down.

  • We can't relax yet.

  • Do you feel like more people wear masks? - Yes

  • I am trying not to touch handholds on the train now.

  • Once there are more cases you'll be careful? - I'm from Saitama

  • and there are only 2-3 cases. There are more in Tokyo

  • and that's scary.

  • The reason why you brought all of this, is BECAUSE you're visiting Tokyo?

  • Yeah Tokyo has more people and that's scary so I

  • took preventive measures.

  • Just updating you a little more about the situation right now. At this point in time

  • it is very hard to buy facemasks and hand sanitizer. It is

  • instantly sold out if it goes into stores and in the mornings when people hope new deliveries

  • come in, there can be lines down the street. I've seen it in my area and other areas of tokyo

  • people will line up for hours to get their hands on face masks. They're very hard to

  • get hold of at this point in time. Other countries have implemented some very

  • strong measures for example Taiwan has changed the length of their school break right now to

  • make sure not too many people are outside and the chances of people giving the virus to other

  • people has lessened. Japan hasn't done measures like that and is getting criticized for it

  • but maybe soon there might be new measures coming out so keep checking for that

  • another issue that people are talking about is the cruise ship Diamond Princess

  • which is currently here in Japan but people are denied entry into Japan

  • everyone is quarantined on the ship. That's a very urgent situation at this point in time.

  • A lot of people have gotten the virus on that boat. The American

  • citizens have been evacuated back to America and that's another issue that Japan has

  • to deal with at this point. There are some conspiracy theories where people say there

  • are lots more people infected with the virus in Japan but it's kept a little quiet...

  • like one of the people has said, that's one of the theories going round because the numbers kept

  • low because the olympics might be coming. Don't know if that's true. Those

  • rumors are at least out there. We already know that Japan is gonna get a

  • big hit economically wise from this because Japan really counts on

  • it's Chinese tourists and since many Chinese tourist groups have cancelled and now even

  • tourists from other parts of the world are cancelling their trips to Japan. This might impact

  • the Japanese economy unless Japan manages to pull out and get everything sorted

  • before the Olympics come. This is a very important time for Japan right now. I hope

  • the people in power will implement the right things to make sure everyone is save

  • and hopefully this will blow over in a couple of months time and we will all be

  • safe. So trick no1 don't forget whenever you go out

  • try to wear a facemasks, always wash your hands and gargle with fresh water

  • just to get things out of your throat as well. If you can, if you can find it get yourself

  • some hand sanitizer as well to make sure everything is clean at all times especially

  • if you touch public properties. That's the things we can do for this point in time. There might be more coming

  • out soon so keep checking. Stay informed, stay save, hope you have a great day. Catch you soon on

  • Ask Japanese. Bye

People discriminate Chinese because of the virus right now. It's scary.
