Coronavirus / Covid-19 situation in Japan
By today October 28th 2020, cumulative coronavirus (Covid-19) cases topped 100,000 in Japan. Tokyo confirmed over 200 new cases, and Osaka confirmed over 200 new cases and and we can notice infection is spreading with clusters especially in urban areas.
But from my point of view, people are paying most attention in order not to infect coronavirus (Covid-19) to others. In fact the ratio of people who are wearing face masks and coverings, are almost 100%. For now the government is not going to impose lockdown, and there’s no curfew for bars and restaurants at this moment. People are living with voluntary “stay-at-home”
