Something is different. The body parts are not working correctly, your throat is a bit dry, and you slightly realize your condition would be not OK soon. When everything seems dull, maybe you are getting cold. Especially, in this world and in this time, the people who have even slight fever should be told you need to take a rest. This is very ironic because about a year ago, every Japanese were though to be a person to work or fight 24 hours even you are in a bad condition. Your boss somehow admit your coming to office even you have a slight fever.
However, due to the COVID issue, even ad of Japanese medicine has changed. The phrase was “For the people who can’t take a rest”, and it has changed like “All you need to do is take a rest”. This is a huge changing. But still, there seems many people who have a huge hesitation to take a rest. And I think this is a cultural thing. I will surely take a rest if my condition seems a bit worse. If we Japanese could live in a society in which nobody try to work even in a bad condition.
