Not sure where you live, but over in the Japan where I live COVID-19 is making a huge comeback. Especially with recent decisions to shy away from closing things down again since the state of emergency back in April.
Compare the numbers, even if it is starting to make some sort of comeback (which is natural due to people interacting with each other more), Japan's number of confirmed cases is less than one hundredth of the US. Sure the US has a larger population, but only by about 2.6 times. Japan also has roughly a 72% recovery rate compared to the US' ~30%. Japan is astronomically more diligent and pragmatic with Covid than the US. Its recovery rate is better than the global rate of ~58%. I am pretty sure it is safe to say that Japan handled it well, especially when compared to the US; they are doing something overall correctly.
