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.

Show thread


The world average death per million (DPM) is 234.
Japan sits at 27 DPM.
“Among Japan’s fellow G7 countries, the average for the other six countries, all of which had stringent lockdowns, is 949 DPM.”

Of course, I wish everyone was doing better or that CoVID would just disappear already, but it’s interesting to see the different methods of dealing with the pandemic around the world.

Show thread

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.

Looking for a 2021 Calendar and I found this one. I try to keep cat stuff out of our house, but I feel like this would bring Fraser so much joy each month.
