Anywhere they realise the scale of the problem and can adapt effectively and quickly to the changing situation as a result of the pandemic, whether in the form of a mutating virus or strain on the medical system. In other words, definitely not Japan.

I read an article such as this almost everyday. The only catalyst for change may be for Japan to be shamed at an international level for the abuse and murder of its children by the very persons supposed to protect them.

even animals take better care of their children than those couple...
I do see what you are trying to say, but animals are actually far more 'humane' than some humans are. We use words like 'beastial', 'animal' and such when we come across acts of cruelty by humans, but non-human animals do not have a knack or desire for deliberate cruelty, the way we do.

Yumm.. raita is delicious, with a spicy biryanis and cold beer. I've had raita with only cucumber, only tomato, and one with both. Also had raita with something like tanuki udon toppings atop a thick yogurt. I'm salivating. I do recall that all raita was savoury though, so not sure how a sugary version would taste.

To those saying otherwise in the comments, China was also under the influence of western powers, historically. Call it concessions or colonisation, china was dominated by multiple European powers. Cutting of the Chinese melon? The Opium Wars?

it is the second-most populous country in the world so no surprise that the infection rate and fatalities are higher. As for China, we will never really know the real count, but it is probably right up there, at the very top of the list.
