Why the spread of corona virus was relatively slow in Japan compared to other countries(2)!

Avoiding physical proximity by bowing rather than shaking hands can be one of the reasons which slowed the the spread of Covid-19 in Japan.
In Japan, when people meet, they don’t generally hug or kiss but bow to each other. Bowing which is called o-jigi in Japanese is the feature of Japanese etiquette and a custom known even outside Japan. It is very important and the companies usually train their employees how to bow in a perfect manner. So, social distancing is somehow automatically observed when you are not shaking hands and bow when you meet each other.
