Just heard on the news that more people in Japan committed suicide in the month of October (more then 2,100) then died from the virus in all of 2020 to date. Japan is one of the only countries that report suicide deaths so the rest of the world doesn't see how much death is being caused by the illegal shutdowns and house arrest orders.
