I say the wave is peaking.

The number of coronavirus-related deaths reported nationwide was 164.

The government keeps internal statistics on what percentage of these deaths are vaccinated with 1, 2, 3, 4 or more doses.

That data should be released to the public.

There's no reason to hide it other than to protect government officials from facing a backlash.

3 of those cases right here!

7 ( +7 / -0 )

Again, case numbers are essentially meaningless as they include the asymptomatic whom have been included in the raw numbers.

@Bronco : Just stop your anti-vaxxing inflammatory remarks already. You've made your feelings clear for 18 months.

Those who chose to be vaccinated have, some not. Fair enough.

Some like you seem to make it the centre point of everything Covid related. Have you been outside ( if you are even in Tokyo). Life is normal. Covid is here to stay, especially for the winter. Most are just dealing with it.

Tokyo used to put that on the front page of their coronavirus dashboard but now they've hidden it for some reason.

If anything we need more transparency, not less

86 deaths were vaccinated ones.

And those who have not would like to decide if they should or should not vaccinate.

As per informed consent, they have a right to know whether vaccination increases the risk or death or reduces it.

Why doesn't the government merely release the actual data that taxpayers deserve to know so we can make informed decisions.

Right, the government pissed away a ton of our money on this. It's our right to know.

By far not. The viruses deal with us humans, not we deal with them. We have longtime given away the initiative and supremacy and now are having no choice and influence and are just only exposed to them, to fewer of them when still feeling healthy or to very much of them when leading to acute infection, symptoms or sometimes death.

“Again, case numbers are essentially meaningless as they include the asymptomatic whom have been included in the raw numbers.”

There are ZERO “asymptomatic” people included in the daily numbers.!. Japan currently ONLY test symptomatic people.!. It’s been that way since 10/3.

Furthermore , these numbers do NOT include those who were tested with only an antigen test.!. The true number of the truly symptomatic patients is surely through the roof again .!. Nearly 600k currently listed as hospitalized either in an actual hospital or a hotel.!. In my city , the 3 Covid hospitals are full .!. The 4 hotels are nearly full .!.

In order to “learn to live with Covid”, the key word is “learn” and by every possible metric, the jgov and general population still have a lot of learning to do.!. The new case numbers are relevant because they give us a great indicator of what’s to come in the way of hospitalizations and unnecessary deaths.!.

With each new variant being more deadly than the previous one, the vaccines have proven to be safe and EFFECTIVE as advertised.!. Mask up people.!. Vax up people.!. Avoid all crowded and/or closed spaces.!.

The latest vaccines have proved to be incredibly bad in dealing with the new variants. The short lived protection from serious illness and transmission is quite remarkable. It is no surprise to me that the time up of the lasted booster is in single figures.
