    Did Japan Just Beat the Virus Without Lockdowns or Mass Testing?

    Japanís state of emergency is set to end with new cases of the coronavirus dwindling to mere dozens. It got there despite largely ignoring the default playbook.

    No restrictions were placed on residentsí movements, and businesses from restaurants to hairdressers stayed open. No high-tech apps that tracked peopleís movements were deployed. The country doesnít have a center for disease control. And even as nations were exhorted to ďtest, test, test,Ē Japan has tested just 0.2% of its population -- one of the lowest rates among developed countries.

    Yet the curve has been flattened, with deaths well below 1,000, by far the fewest among the Group of Seven developed nations. In Tokyo, its dense center, cases have dropped to single digits on most days. While the possibility of a more severe second wave of infection is ever-present, Japan has entered and is set to leave its emergency in just weeks, with the status lifted already for most of the country and Tokyo and the remaining four other regions set to exit Monday.

    It accomplished what the left wanted. Killed the Trump economy, set records for people unemployed, and let the democrat party state governors act like little adolfs.
