4. It's not just open versus closed, it is a lot about HOW...

Japan didn't close or lockdown anything like what America did, but their cases and deaths are miniscule by comparison to the US, and also compared to other no-lockdown countries like Sweden.

Why? Maybe because their mask-wearing rate was through the roof.

There are studies/papers out there which show that if 80% of Americans wore masks outside the home, the transmission rate would plummet even without an accompanying lockdown.
