Today, Tokyo parks and malls are bursting with activity ๐Ÿ˜ง

Nobody appears to be too concerned, which is somewhat... concerning.

Confirmed cases arenโ€™t all cases. They only include people who tested positive. Testing rules and availability vary by country.

In Tokyo, public transportation keeps heaving passengers as usual. People appear mostly unconcerned, except for the higher than usual ratio of masks.

It's true!!! Supermarkets in Tokyo have plenty of food, but people are panick buying all the toilet paper!

"Apology

Due to the impact of the news of the Novel Coronavirus, rapid purchase of the products and the decrease in their shipments have been greatly reduced. We apologize for any inconvenience and inconvenience this may cause. Deeply apologize.

The impact is expected to continue beyond today, so please forgive us.

Landing in Haneda soon.
I have a "special re-entry" thing that *might* spare me the embarrassment of showing up with an Italian passport at border control ๐Ÿ˜“

I know how to do it for KDE, and I know how to edit ~/.config/mimeapps.list, but... is there any way to do it from Gnome's GUI?
