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.
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.
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.

BAD SANTA and MEAN GIRLS APT
Date: Saturday, December 19
This month we will be watching Bad Santa and Mean Girls! Check a look on Patreon or Discord to see where they are available in your country. But, also make sure to double check before the day. Sometime the ol' Internets can be unreliable.
Just in case any of you want to eat the Japanese Ketchup Pasta dish we were talking about during today's show.
I present: Ketchup Spaghetti (Napolitan) ナポリタン
(For the record, Fraser and I have NEVER tried it. Perhaps some day... but it seems so unappetizing.)
