My buddy is in Japan, he's likely going to be back to normal (playing music and in general) long before I am.
128 million people in that country (the oldest population on earth, and they got it at least as early as the US), less than 1000 dead, and their "curve" is an exaggerated frown.
and Japan is densely populated, esp urban areas.
I have spent time in Japan, and love the people, the arts, the culture.
And they respect rules and science.
Sad to say, the US is not achieving progress on Covid like a 1st world country.
