South Korea, Japan Seek Post-Pandemic Return to Normal

South Korea’s government on Monday dropped nearly all pandemic-related social gathering restrictions in an effort “to move on from the COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus] pandemic,” Yonhap News reported, two days after Japan’s government announced the country “no longer needs to fully stop social activities” due to the disease.
