Grumbles About Japan PM’s Speech


‘S PRIME MINISTER — IS GAINING MIXED REVIEWS BY CONGRESS. AND JUST HOW SAFE ARE THOSE HOSPITAL GELS… SANITIZERS… AND DISINFEC TANTS?? THE F-D-A WANTS ANSWERS… HERE’S MORE… IN YOUR “HEADLINES ACROSS AMERICA.” PRIME MINISTER “SHINZO ABE” BECAME THE FIRST JAPANESE LEADER TO ADDRESS A JOINT MEETING OF THE U-S CONGRESS, THIS WEEK… THE MOST SCRUTINIZED PART OF ABE’S VISIT?? HIS CHOICE OF WORDS, DURING A SPEECH — ABOUT JAPAN’S ROLE IN WORLD WAR TWO. THIS — AS COUNTRIES AROUND THE GLOBE PREPARE TO COMMEMORATE THE END OF THAT CONFLICT. SHINZO ABE: “WITH DEEP REPENTANCE IN MY HEART, I STOOD THERE IN SILENT PRAYERS FOR SOME TIME.” ABE’S SELF- PROFESSED ADMIRATION FOR THE U-S… EARNED HIM SEVERAL STANDING OVATIONS… BUT THE ABSENCE OF A “CLEAR APOLOGY” OVER THE WAR… YIELDED “MIXED REVIEWS” FROM SOME OF THE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS. MIKE HONDA: “TO APOLOGIZE UNAMBIGUOUSLY AND ACCEPT HISTORICAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE MILITARY SYSTEMATIC CAPTURING OF GIRLS AND WOMEN DURING THAT PERIOD. / HE DID NOT TAKE THAT OPPORTUNITY.” IT’S A CONSTANT SIGHT IN HOSPITALS ACROSS THE COUNTRY… AND UP UNTIL NOW, IT’S BEEN ASSUMED DISINFECTANTS WORK … BUT NOW THERE ARE TESTS TO PROVE THEY DO. THE F-D-A — NOW CALLING FOR MAKERS OF HOSPITAL DISINFECTANTS — TO UNDERGO THESE TESTS… ENSURING THEIR PRODUCTS ARE SAFE AND EFFECTIVE. ALTHOUGH DOCTORS AND NURSES — ARE CONSTANTLY USING THOSE ALCOHOL-BASED GELS AND HAND SANITIZERS… STUDIES SHOW — THAT HOSPITAL – ACQUIRED INFECTIONS… NOW AFFECT ONE… IN 25 PATIENTS.
