Is this ‘manzai’ or back chat? It is not so much demonstration of one shot joke ‘being not foolish but insane’ on the political level but as a farcical play itself.
Professor Kentaro Iwata pointed out in the video posted on YouTube, which has already been removed, that “the safety area and the dangerous area of Diamond Princess cruise ship have been messed up” and necessary measures to prevent the infectious disease have not been taken. Deputy Minister Gaku Hashimoto of MHLW, field supervisor, posted a photo showing the “zoning situation within the cruise ship” on official account. This helped him score a spectacular own goal.
It is too laughable and some people praise him as “whistle-blower.” The first tweet by Mr. Tatsuki Uchida shown below describes the current situation for which the expression of “chaos” is suitable.
In the photo posted by Deputy Minister Hashimoto, taking into consideration aerosol infection, the fact of “no space partitioning between safety green zone and infection-threatening red zone is a problem, but according to Professor Iwata, the space in front of the photo is a more serious problem.
Please see the third to the last tweets, and you can understand it. This administration is really yabaior risky.

Shanti-phula has indicated some parts of the following text in black bold-faced type or in red letters.
English translation of an excerpt from a Japanese article: BUZZAP!– February 20, 2020 by Fukami
[New Coronavirus] Deputy Minister Gaku Hashimoto of MHLW who released the zoning situation of the cruise ship himself has spectacularly detonated himself, which serves as whistle-blowing
The image in problem is here. It is posted on official account by Deputy Minister Gaku Hashimoto of HMLC (Snapshot).
"Incidentally, the actual place is like this. It is difficult to read written words in the image.
The left-hand is clean route and the right-hand unclean route."
You can see the inner part of passage separated by rope. When seeing it in closeup, you can see a notice reading “clean route” in the left and a notice reading “unclean route” in the right. It is obvious at a glance that there is no partition as space between the safety green zone and the red zone subject to viral infection.
Dr. Iwata’s accusation video which is greatly shocking in content and provoked a fierce backlash. He was criticized by some people saying “What can an outsider who spent just two hours on the ship figure out in the world?”
Under the circumstances, Deputy Minister Gaku Hashimoto who supervised at the site as “leader of MHLW” released a photo which can make anyone understand in a second that zoning within the cruise ship has not been implemented. In terms of this, he has received a lot of praise as a “whistle-blower.”

うれしげにこの写真を「ゾーニングの成功例」として誇示したあと専門家に「そんなもの出したら終わりです！」と言われて慌てて削除したのが現場の「厚労省のトップ」だということが今回の現地での感染対策の質を雄弁に語っていると思います。岩田先生が「カオス」と表現したのも当然です。 https://t.co/96kUnKvo2I— 内田樹 (@levinassien) February 20, 2020
It is the leader of MHLW on the site who happily showed off this photo as a “successful example of zoning” but hastily deleted it after an expert said “if you put out such a thing, it would deal a fatal blow.” I think that this eloquently speaks about the quality of countermeasures against viral infection at the site. It is natural that Professor Iwata described it as “chaos.”
@PhoWves33(Conclusion) Prof. Iwata was right.I’m aghast at extremely low-level quality as a leader.I wonder what he wanted to show by releasing this.
日本の厚生労働副大臣がたったひとつのツイートで— chocolat. (@chocolat_psyder) February 20, 2020
Japan’s Deputy Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare proved the following two just by one tweet:
1. Countermeasures against infection diseases in Japan are in chaos.
2. Deputy Minister is helplessly incompetent.
And yet, the above has been proved today.
この手前（写真撮ってるとこ）が清潔不潔が完全にクロスするゾーンになる、ということがおわかりいただけますでしょうか。 https://t.co/ICBy9nBBYx— 岩田健太郎 (@georgebest1969) February 20, 2020
Can you see that this side of (place taken in a picture) is the zone where clean and unclean zones completely mingle.
あ、削除された。橋本さんにもゾーニングの問題を共有していただけて嬉しいです。 pic.twitter.com/TObeXEXvC6— 岩田健太郎 (@georgebest1969) February 20, 2020
Oh, it has been deleted. I’m glad that Hashimoto shared the zoning issue.
ちなみにぼくはクルーズにスマホ持っていってません。レッドゾーンに携帯持って入らないは基本だからです（非常に感染リスク高し）。なので写真がありませんでした。— 岩田健太郎 (@georgebest1969) February 20, 2020
Incidentally, I don’ bring my smartphone on the cruise ship.
Because it is fundamental not to bring a mobile phone into the red zone
(We will be at high risk of infection if we do so.) So I had no photos.

Additional information from official website of the cruise ship
It’s the photo seen from the opposite side. The #unclean route and the clean passage appear to get crossed in this way.
All people mingled on the other side of the pillar.
The problem lies here.
There are some strong people in a suit who walk behind a person wearing protecting clothing with a biohazard marked bag.
Two employees on the cruise ship in charge of administrative work confirmed to get infected with the new virusAccording to the MHLW, group infection with the new virus confirmed on the cruise ship “Diamond Princess”…
What do you think about this?
It’s a photo taken a few days ago.

What is this cooking coat for in the first place?
It cannot serve as protecting closing.
