In March 2020, new cases of COVID-19 were started to increase in Japan. Some got scared of viruses, and others asserted that the government should stimulate the economy. Social medias were full of criticism. However, the silent majorities just restrained their activities. As time goes on, they were beginning to realize the victims of COVID-19 in Japan were fewer. Finally, they backed to normal life spontaneously. Under the pandemic, the lifestyle of people changed. Working from home became common. Parties were reduced. The pandemic might be a chance for this country to be reborn.
