Have they? Not many COVID deaths there really. COVID is just one factor but it had a significant impact on the rankings according to the article.

I don't know much about it, I've only seen references to it here and there, and I never bothered looking further into it, but it's been said that Japan has been manipulating the COVID numbers, both in those who became infected and those who may have died as a result of COVID. They weren't doing tests for the longest time and were under-reporting in general. Supposedly, this was done in an attempt to save the Olympic games since Japan was supposed to be hosting.

Japan didn't finally go into lockdown until the Olympics was officially canceled.

Australia ranked high because of that:

3. Adelaide, Australia
4. Wellington, New Zealand
4. Tokyo, Japan
6. Perth, Australia
7. Zurich, Switzerland
8. Geneva, Switzerland
8. Melbourne, Australia
10. Brisbane, Australia

Wow! Adelaide no. 3! That will p*ss off some Victorian mates of mine immensely but I doubt it'll last beyond a year or so. That said it will still have some of the best wine in the world and some truly awesome salt water fishing locations.

The Japanese govt didn't even think it was a serious matter until it killed a famous Japanese person too.
They've definitely been manipulating  the numbers. There efforts have been terrible too.
a friend of mine teaching public school there had a student get covid. The school allowed the student to stay home for 1 day and other parents/students found their home address and sent the student and the family messages to kill themselves for getting it. The other students and staff weren't even allowed to go get tested.

Well the suicides would lower numbers I suppose.

They should tell them to go kill themselves instead.

I've never experienced what the OP offered.  I've always had them interested in learning about other countries and when I tell them the country in Korean they definitely perk up their interest and start talking about what they know about that country.

The only problem I ran into is doing a penpal project with a teacher from Belarus.  Her students kept asking things like, "Do you like Ariana Grande or Justin Beiber"?  And my students would ask them if they knew who Kim Yeo-Na or Son Heung-Min were.  At first I was annoyed because I could tell the Belarusian students were immersed in Western culture mentioning movies and music.  My students only focused on Korean celebrities.  My wife calmed me down though when she reminded me that students have such little free time that they aren't going to really branch out to Western mediums with the little time they have.  Made sense to me so I just accepted it and eventually had to end the penpal project because of that, and other reasons.

I wouldn't necessarily call that nationalism, just more of cultural difference with how much free time Korean children are allotted compared to other countries.

Checked a bunch of medical and covid sites online. Went to the pharmacy and bought what was recommended and it cleared up almost instantly and felt better within minutes.

Going for my 2nd jab this morning.

That's interesting in Australia they're going with this study
https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(21)00432-3/fulltext
which suggests a 12 week gap between doses improves its efficacy. I can understand the urgency due to a lack of supply though.

Is that what they are recommending in Korea? Ie. a two month gap rather than 3 ?

No, two and a half - three months in Korea. My first was June 11, and the second is August 27. Liechtenstein doesn't live in Korea.

I think different vaccines have different wait periods. Here we have the astra zeneca, sino, sputnik and pfizer I believe. Different hospitals and clinics offer different vaccines. You can decide where you want to go and just drop in and get your shot. There is no charge. If you're a farang, bring your passport.

It's 11 to 12 weeks in Korea, to be precise.

Well, after going through a few articles about the vaccine rollout in Thailand, the picture is definitely not as rosy as you say.

1. Only A.Z. and Sinovac jabs are available as of mid June.
2. Certainly not a ''waltz in randomly and get a jab'' situation as they are struggling with shortages.
3. Mass inoculation campaign kicked off in early June. Before that, less than 5% of the population received at least one jab.
4. Registration for foreign residents wanting to get vaccine also opened in early June.
5. By April 22nd ( when you supposedly got your first shot) only 1.2% of the population received at least one jab. How did you manage to be in that 1.2%? Are you 100 years old or a health care worker?
6. Thailand gives the second jabs 10 to 12 weeks  after the first one.

So what country are you in?
