#COVDIOTUpdate 2021/8/30🇯🇵Without #lockdown & 20,000 daily #COVID cases in Japan, the #Aichi prefecture (1,300 daily cases, 1,034 total deaths, hospitals 554% overwhelmed) hosted a music festival without enforcing stringent anti-COVID measures.
One of the #COVIDIOT artists #Zeebra apologized for appearing in the show itself, saying the event violated the “3Cs” doctrine recommended by the government. The artist was aware of the situation going out of control before showing up, but improvements were not made in time.
#Aichi prefecture is one of the hardest #COVID-hit regions in Japan and has been under #StateofEmergency as of AUG 27. Inter-prefecture travel has been strongly discouraged (but not enforced). It recorded 1,385 cases on Sunday with over 12,000 people #StayHome without treatment.
