View Japanese island suffering second wave of coronavirus after lifting lockdown too early
by Julian Ryall in The Telegraph Apr 29, 2020.
A northern region of Japan is experiencing a second wave of coronavirus infections – and deaths – that experts say could have been avoided if the state of emergency had not been lifted too early.
The island of Hokkaido had been held up as a model of how to control the spread of the virus, but it has now become a case study for the impact the disease can have if a lockdown is relaxed too soon.
For the record, Nova Scotia just lifted its ban on visiting Parks a couple of days ago, but distancing regs remain in place. Places in the USA are not so happy with the bans… I just hope neither us or they don’t have to learn the hard way. The Japanese experience can help.
