In Episode 9, we dive more deeply into what is happening in Japan.  With nearly a hundred cases beyond the sad story of the Diamond Princess, we see the beginnings of an outbreak in Japan with several clusters of cases inside and outside Tokyo.  Public criticism is rising about lax health measures as the Health Ministry explores HIV drugs for treatment, working from home, and more testing kits being made available.   All these, however, are still outweighed by Japan's determination to keep their tourism industry afloat, and we look at one case in particular that connects China, Japan, and Hawaii.
