An ageing population, densely packed cities, and low rates of testing. Some health experts feared Japan's coronavirus response was doomed to fail, but now they're trying to solve the "mystery" of its success.
The head line may be stupid but the article itself grabs your attention and makes sure you understand.
If earthquakes are part and parcel of the Japanese pysche then they are ready to react with no fear or panic they know inherently what to do , it is borne and bred into them .
I have lived through two (both minor ) and found them deeply disturbing as there is absolutely nothing I could do
I have a vague memory of an earthquake when I was a young child.
Never known one since.
Both happened when I was on leave and both happened early morning I was very frighthened .
There is a sense in these events that it is way - way out of your control
