While the coronavirus was spreading from Okinawa to Hokkaido in japan, the number of newly infected people decreased within a month or two after the declaration of a state of emergency. However, due to the short period of time, the declaration was lifted while the coronavirus was still incubating in people's bodies. Then the infection spreads again. In other words, if we can extend the period of state of emergency, the number of people infected with coronas will approach zero and disappear.

While vaccines are seen as the last resort in the fight against coronaviruses, from a longer term perspective, changing social systems at this time will help solve coronaviruses and other social problems. The way to do this is described by Prout Village in the following.

"The coronavirus that spread around the world in 2020 required people to stay home in order to prevent infection. As a result, companies and individuals alike were plagued with money-related problems. At Prout Village, we grow food in and around our home, so we don't have to worry about food, and we don't have to pay rent, so we can stay home until the vaccine is available and the infected are gone. We can also secure beds for the infected, for example, since we usually do not build houses 10km inland from the sea, we can temporarily build a plout village and houses there. Masks and other necessities can be made with the help of 3D printers in each Prout Village, so there will be no shortage of supplies. As for the problem of students lagging behind in their studies, Prout Village does not have a curriculum, academic background, or a concept of employment, and students are expected to learn how to study and proceed independently. Therefore, there is no concept of lagging behind in one's studies.

In the event of an outbreak of an infectious disease for which there is no vaccine, the first step is to seal off the municipality where the outbreak occurred and surrounding municipalities as soon as possible. In some cases, the movement of people between municipalities will be prohibited nationwide. Then, all residents in the municipality will be tested. Those who test positive will be moved to temporary quarantine dwellings in Plout Village, which will be built on vacant land, to receive treatment. If a large portion of the municipality is infected, the municipality itself will be quarantined and those who are not infected will be moved to another municipality. When all the people in a municipality are found to be negative, they are free to move again.

If we look back at the history of infectious diseases on a century-by-century basis, we see that they have been occurring since ancient times and will continue to do so in the future. Therefore, it is better to have a dispersed population so that testing can be done quickly and separately. When large numbers of people are concentrated, as in cities, there aren't enough doctors and equipment, leading to medical collapse."
