Japan has the world's 9th highest number of total cases after

And how about total deaths? Did you forget that for some reason?

-2 ( +6 / -8 )

 In August, 7,328 people died, the worst single-month figure of the pandemic.

And in August, the only thing you heard was "Open the Borders!" We want to eat Sushi on the Ginza.

Dont forget to look up death per capita.

Total numbers are irrelevant unless linked to the sizes of the populations.

Didn't forget. this is why i didn't

Over half of Japan pathologists' requests for postmortem coronavirus tests rejected: survey - The Mainichi

20 million cases is nearly 25% of the population of 124 million. "And then, reality set in!"

@Ali Rustom

could you also post the percentage ratio as per population

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

20 million cases in a population of 125 million are 16%.

That's surprising. I honestly would have thought the number would have gone down seeing how schools were out.

Don't forget that if people pay for their own test and then test positive, it does not go into the official count. That ups the number. The 20 million are only the people approved for testing by the hokenjo who tested positive and early in the pandemic, many people who wanted to be tested were refused because they did not have a high enough fever. The real figure is probably much higher.

Myop, its literally on the same chart as the total number of cases. The chart lists the total number of cases for each country, the total number of deaths and the case fatality rate per country all together below

New SARS-CoV-2 omicron B4.6 can only come here from overseas.

ive had Covid but wonder if I have crowd immunity protection from these new mutated variants? Not vaccinated.

Cases don’t matter. Japan likely has many more cases than reported due to the challenges with getting a test. The silver lining is that their death rate (relative to population) is extremely low compared to the IS and UK where obesity is crazy high. Same for Aouth Korea and Taiwan. I’m from the US BTW.

-10 ( +0 / -10 )

CDC estimates 75% of Americans have had COVID. With Japanese regularly coming into close contact with each other, I’m sure a lot more than 20 million have caught it.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

A high percentage of the population. It would be nice to know what went wrong. This place had a grip on this outbreak for awhile.

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Who cares. Let's live our lives.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

20 million cases is nearly 25% of the population of 124 million. "And then, reality set in!"

That's assuming that all have had it only once. I know many people that have had it 2/3/4 times.

1 ( +1 / -0 )

How many are repeat infections and how do we know they're not false-positives?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

No success in Japan with keeping infections down, unlike its neighbor across the sea that has seen the greatest success in the world at keeping infection rates the lowest in the world, unless you want to misinterpret statistics and facts.
