In Japan, the government said it would urge business leaders to ramp up anti-virus measures 

In Japan, the government said it would urge citizens to travel around the country by offering financial incentives to do so through their anti-anti-virus "Go To Travel" campaign.

Travel spreads the virus.

Japan’s capital city shows clearly that increased numbers using public transport will spread infection.

Keep on riding those trains and buses and cases will continue to rise

 "Go To Travel" campaign.

Should be "Go to the Hospital and test campaign"

US has a population of 330 million, the number of people died from the virus stands at 151,000 today, that is 450 deaths per million people. Respectively, the figures for China are 1,440 million, 4600 deaths, and 3 deaths per million.

The statistics is telling a story..

Florida is case in point (pardon the pun). The state is well BELOW the national average in per capita deaths due to corona, especially compared to places like New York and New Jersey.

The article is talking about the current situation. The fact that Florida has the greatest number of active infections in the US right now, combined with an infection and death curve which very steep and doesn’t look like it will flatten any time soon, could have a lot to due with the state being “singled out” as you say.

"Cases" is a meaningless statistic. How about looking at actual hospitalizations, deaths, recoveries.....

Let's use Florida as an example, as in the article. The state is well BELOW the national average in per capita deaths due to corona, especially compared to places like New York and New Jersey. Yet gets highlighted in the article.

Japan has less than one death per hundred thousand people, yet people panic.

Infections and viruses spread regardless of what people do. This is just another- perhaps more contagious but also perhaps less lethal.

This story says second wave. It is still first wave badly managed.

they virus will mutate into second wave. This is starting in Vietnam...

Playing travel ban Whack-a-Mole every time there is a spike in cases is ultimately pointless if there is little to no mass testing.
