Get your facts before commenting! The death stats currently stands at 2.7% globally and 1.75% in Japan. Have some respect for the people who have lost their loved ones and the health care workers who are putting their life on the line daily dealing with this pandemic! Yes, we need to keep living despite COVID-19 by working, opening borders and build the economy but downplaying the severity of the virus is wrong! There is a big difference between your 0.5% death rate and the actual death rate of 2.7%!
