Japan Ends Coronavirus Emergency With 850 Deaths and No Lockdown

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has announced the end of his state of emergency declaration for the novel coronavirus pandemic, with just 851 deaths reported and without ever implementing a lockdown.

"I have decided to end the state of emergency across the nation," Abe said during a televised press conference on Monday. "In just over a month and a half, we almost brought (the infection) situation under control."

Abe cautioned that lifting the order did not mean that the novel virus was gone from Japan. "Our battle against the virus will continue," he said, while urging the Japanese people to continue following stringent social distancing guidance.

As of Monday, the East Asian nation had reported 16,628 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus. Of those infected, 13,612 have already recovered and 851 have died. Tokyo, the nation's capital with 14 million residents, was the hardest-hit part of the country, with more than 5,100 cases. On Monday, the city reported just eight new infections.

The Japanese embassy in Washington, D.C. did not respond to Newsweek's request for comment by publication.

While Japan never implemented stringent lockdowns like those in parts of China, many European countries and the U.S., it barred foreigner travelers who had visited many hard-hit countries and urged residents to adhere to social distancing guidelines. Restaurants and shops were also required to close earlier than normal. Karaoke bars, live music venues and gyms were shuttered and will remain closed in the coming weeks.

Public health officials in Japan have warned the population to wear masks in public and continue to work from home if possible. The Japanese government has asked the population to adapt to a new lifestyle to avoid an uptick in new cases and prevent the spread of the virus. People have also been encouraged to avoid traveling for non-essential purposes to other regions of the country.

It's unclear why Japan has a relatively low infection rate and a comparatively small number of deaths due to COVID-19. Abe has faced criticism for taking little action to curb the virus' spread as many other nations implemented stringent lockdowns.

Unclear why?   Let's see, strict immigration policies, very high sanitation and hygiene practices especially in food applications, most people have been masking and sanitizing for years now, PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY, only ways into the country are closely guarded and those in charge take it very seriously, don't play politics and don't give a damn about if anyone is offended.  AND... it's an island nation with only a handful of entry points.   PLUS, all people born in Japan and up to age of 5 or 6(I think) get what is called a BCG (forget exactly what it stands for).  Guess what is part of the shot?  Hint, it has to do Malaria...  That's right, an anti Malarial, although it's speculative that this may have a lot to do with it, it does make sense.  Especially considering the fact that Japan has a very very large percentage of the population with is 65,70, and even 80+  If I am not mistaken they have one of the largest groups in that age range of any nation on earth.

I am willing to bet that they haven’t manipulated the numbers to fit an agenda... unlike the CDC, WHO, hospital admins, Cuomo, etc.
