MUCC and Covid-19
The corona virus killed many events. MUCC live was not exception. There was a huge live event planned in June, 2020 but it was cancelled due to the Covid-19.
Instead, MUCC did and plans to do more online live events.
At the same time, you can watch their online channel on Niconico and Youtube.
In one recent interview, Miya said that after the corona pandemic occurred, his view for the death changed. It became rather positive about the death; the god kinda dropped the Covid-19 to reduce the population; Japanese government needs more science background people to make fat decision on the corona.
