Japan is still keeping very restrictive Covid policies compared to most parts of the world (obviously not China). There seems to have been a total of some 36 000 Covid related deaths in Japan. This should be seen in the light of that they now estimating there is an suicide rate which is 8000 higher than would otherwise been expected, mostly young people.
Suicide is the ultimate end for someone with mental health issues, how many more extra are also suffering sever mental health issues but have not taken their life?
Why does mental health take such a back-seat in Asian culture in general and more importantly the past two years when considering the risks to the population of certain Covid policies?
