    Japan - 1,600 deaths

    UK Population - 65m
    Japan Population - 126m

    UK Population Density - 725 persons per sq mile

    I thought it was interesting to compare the two countries.

    The only difference I can think of is Japan doesn't have Boris and his totally inept team.

    Japan and other east asian societies have a better acceptance of wearing face masks, they acknowledge even before COVID19 the mask is not for only for their protection, but to protect others.

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Japan has a very orderly society who will readily obey laws. They are used to wearing masks.
    Japanese hospitals are not short of equipment.
    Japanese families and the public highly respect old people, old people are given priority.

    In the UK, over 65s are neglected and dumped and disrespected by the younger generation. Even the government advises don't
    bother treating over 65s for covid 19.
    The Tories could not organise a pee up in a brewery, never mind how to deal with covid 19.
