Huge cases still.

In this highly vaccinated country, it manages to lead the world in infection rate.

hard to imagine with the continued draconian measures in Japan it has the highest rate of infection in the world….

That is a bit higher than usual. Does anyone know the highest number of deaths in one day in Japan?

Going up fast enough for bonenkai to be cancelled???

this is this JGOV website has a bit better breakdown. Looks like 350 during the previous omicron wave was highest. Would be nice if they drilled down a bit more into comorbidities but better than nothing.

A breakdown by age of those getting infected would be interesting... it could be that it's the crowded trains acting as incubators for the virus. Masks are not 100% effective, and the vaccines reduce the chances of getting seriously ill, not acting as a cure. There is no cure.

Some of the effects of the so called vaccines have been/are Anaphylaxis, antibody-dependent enhancements, and death.

Having had the virus and having recovered due to my own 100% natural immunity then why would I risk the above

Even if what you believe is true you should define risk first, or quantify rather

116 deaths were vaccinated ones.

@ian

Why should I need to define risk?

I just read the reports on Pubmed…

What more is there for me to say that I haven't already said. This time, I'm keeping it simple, and paraphrasing what another user has been saying this whole time... Ready?

Mask off, open up!!!

stats would suggest getting vaccinated is the right call then. Around 80% in Japan are vaccinated, so if 20% of the population make up 50% of the deaths it’s a concern.

Where are the link’s showing deaths with vaccines?

Do according to Pubmed..

what's the risk of you dying because of the vaccine?

What's the risk of you dying because of covid?

Lol why?

I wonder why the number of deaths is not included in the title. That’s the most important to me

Why are the same people posting the same worn out BS every day about this by sharing their views but not facts nor citing their sources. Do you just live to try to spread misinformation? The vaccines have saved millions of lives. Wearing masks is an accepted part of Japanese culture. If you don't like it, go somewhere else. I can't wait to get my 5th vaccination on Monday, so I have less risk of death or long covid or hospitalization. By the way, the number of vaccinated people who died is probably due to their age and pre-existing health problems. Don't try to fake that the vaccines don't work. Why should I quote sources if the bozos don't?

Some of the effects of the so called vaccines have been/are Anaphylaxis, antibody-dependent enhancements, and death.

Anaphylaxis happens with everything, antibody-dependent enhancement is not a described complication of the vaccines, it would make impossible to have the current evidence that shows being vaccinated or infected protects (even if incompletely) from later infection, (for ADE see what happens with Dengue), and death after vaccine is not the same as because of the vaccines.

Being vaccinated means less risk for the health and life compared with unvaccinated people.

I just read the reports on Pubmed

So do the professionals around the world that say you are misrepresenting the evidence that proves vaccines are safe and effective.

What more is there for me to say that I haven't already said.

Mostly something that is actually correct and address the clear evidence that measures against covid are a very effective way to reduce the risk.
