Good article explaining how Japan has dealt with CoVID and how/why our numbers are low.
We were never really put into strict lockdown. However, the government has issued two State of Emergency (SoE) for the Tokyo area. This restricts a few things like restaurant hours and theatre and event capacity. It’s mostly voluntary, but people take it seriously when we are in a SoE.
I feel like many expats in Japan are up in arms (they so often are) about how Japan has handled the pandemic, but sometimes you need perspective. And I feel like this article gave me some.
@MissBlow it's really nice to see that some countries handle it all the proper safe way. Here in UK the cases are still rising and worse than last March :(
