A recent post by Business Insider, which is one of my favorite business publications, talks about how Japan has been dealing with the pandemic. The title of the post says “Japan avoided a lockdown by telling everyone to steer clear of the 3Cs”.
Instead of a complete shutdown, Japan has been taking a 3Cs approach to tackling the COVID-19. Unlike in Paris, London, New York and many other cities around the world, in Japan, we were never forced to stay home, even when the state of emergency was declared. Instead, we’ve been asked to do so, and encouraged to avoid “confined” spaces with poor ventilation, “crowded” conditions, and “close” contact with people.
Now, I’m sure you can imagine how these three words are translated into Japanese, as they are critically important to prevent coronavirus infection.
