Of the guidance that doctors give patients, there is a great deal of “restricting behavior”.
・Don’t walk too much as you may fall.
・If your knees hurt, stairs are dangerous, so use an elevator.
・As your chewing power is weak, eat a soft meal.
・If you feel dizzy, keep resting.
・Do not exercise for a while after surgery.
The deadline of restricting behavior is not clearly defined very often. Why do they want to limit patient behavior? It is easier for doctors to limit patient behavior. And when unfavorable event occurs, doctors have a good cause to say an I-told-you so tone “you didn’t do what I told” On the other hand, even if something goes wrong with what the doctor told me, the doctor will not take any responsibility.
This time around, the Corona Pandemic has brought various restrictions such as wearing mask, hand washing, outing restrictions. However, even if people obey the rules, they will infect the corona. But they won’t take any responsibility.
In addition, Japanese people won’t say, “I’ve done thorough hand-washing and wearing masks, but what does it mean to be infected? you said no airborne infection. If so, I would be able to prevent infection with hand-washing and masks. Why did I get infected? Take responsibility!” They does not say, “You told him to wait at home and check the symptom. But the reason why he died suddenly was that the standards created by the experts were incorrect. Explain!”
Outing restrictions have a great impact on the economy. If the limit is too long, the industry may be collapsed and may not be able to recover when Corona is over.
I think the current limits are too tight. Restaurants should be allowed to resume business during the daytime. Of course, since congestion is bad, it is a prerequisite to issue a numbered ticket to prevent congestion. The park should be opened. It can’t be helped to be crowded to some extent. And, sales are allowed with cars sold outside the park. And let the flow of people go out of the park. A numbered ticket system is used for mobile sales. Some of the wide streets such as Ginza and Shinjuku are dedicated to pedestrians to disperse people.
This can be done by political judgment. I think the “stay home” call should be withdrawn.
