If you mean the government handling of the Covid 19 issue you are correct. Japan is now the example to follow. Japan now has the lowest death rate, the lowest number of cases, and the highest vaccination rate. Soon the third round of jabs will begin. Take a look in the rear view mirror guys that is the world Japan is leaving in its dust.
