japan's COVID-19 cases are relatively low compared with other countries, standing at around 415,000 in total with over 6,900 deaths.
It would be interesting to see data from the serological surveillance study, whether the spread of the virus is really low in Japan. Until now, Is there any data that has been published?

As if viruses travel only in the airplane. It is for sure there are many mutants in every country. Locking down everything is certainly not a solution and how long it can be continued. The rate at which inoculation is planned or possible, it will take years to vaccinate at least a large chunk of the population.

The Japanese government is doing a great job. I am eager to see another "go to" campaign.

The more you test, the more you know the severity of the problem. It would be interesting to see if stringent testing restrictions are relaxed.

No offense to any decent Indians; I do believe the majority of them are very decent. In general, complaining about racism from Indians do not go down well. It is a part of everyday life. Indians can not differentiate between what is racist and what is not. Many of them say offensive words as being ignorant.

The numbers are increasing at an alarming rate. I do not expect to close everything down, which is not a solution. However, the authorities seem to downplay the situation.

It is worrisome. Winter is also in the corner. The stringent testing requirements should be relaxed.

India is testing at an average of 1.1 million per day. It is still less. However, Anybody wants a test can get one and it is free in govt hospitals. 83000 is a small number when you consider the size of the population, and population density in urban areas. For example, if the USA can have 70 k cases per day during its peak, or France having more than 10 K, it is quite expected in India to have a large number of cases. The virus is just started spreading in rural India, and therefore, it will continue to grow for some time at least at this pace. Now 2/3 of the cases are from tier 2, 3 cities, and villages.

Today UN is irrelevant. The presence of Britian and France as permanent members does not make any sense.

As long as the number of cases is in continuous decline, it is fine. I think, Japan so far, handled the pandemic much better way than almost all other countries, except China.
-3 ( +10 / -13 )
Japanese people are doing a great job in containing the spread of the virus. The test positivity rate is always lower than 5 %.

India does not have a proper death counting mechanism in all places. It is estimated that the death count is 3-5.2 times higher than what is reporting.
