What? But the numbers had been falling? What's the governments policy to curb the virus? Where's Koike?

-5 ( +6 / -11 )

No, as has been pointed out to you numerous times by numerous people here, the numbers of cases and deaths have NOT been falling. Over the past week both cases and deaths are both up 22% compared to 2 weeks ago. (https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/weekly-trends/#weekly_table)

from Monday, and surpassing 20,000 for the first time since Aug 25.

People are clearly not following preventive measures properly. To review:

mask up in closed spaces

2, get your nth booster

When out on the razz, keep it down, unless 2 meters from other people.

Wash your hands after.

All quite simple really. If I forgot something let me know.

All those masks and jabs are doing a fine job at curbing the spread.

That's the rub. People ARE'NT masked or jab. You can see the hole in your logic, can't you?

75,000 on Monday and almost triple two days later.

Counting these cases daily is such a waste of time and money.

The more daily cases, the sooner we achieve herd immunity!

-5 ( +8 / -13 )

Herd immunity assumes that there will be no evolution of variants that escape protection due to prior infection and recovery from a previous version of the virus. It also assumes that immunity does not wane over time.

With corona you are generally only protected from severe reinfection by a specific variant (or family of closely related variants) for a limited period of time.

Good

The more daily cases, the sooner we achieve herd immunity!

What other countries are still keeping track of this and/or masking?

More and more people have figured they do more harm than good on balance, so have abandoned them.

today 2 mins earlier than usual.btw did you noticed that these "reports" are getting shorter and there is never source listed for these numbers?

-4 ( +7 / -11 )

and there is never source listed for these numbers?

They always use to list their source as toyokeizai, but recently that website closed their English language version. So maybe this being an English language publication they stopped including the link?

Monday's report was of Sunday's figures. Hospitals are mostly closed on Sundays.

Mind you the constant masking wearing is ludicrous

Do you think less masking will lead to less / more / exactly the same amount of infections?

0 ( +4 / -4 )

Masks remain a low-cost, low-tech way to keep people healthier throughout the holiday season so that more of us can be free of illness for the time that we value with our family and friends.

Essential reading. Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Everyone has another recipe to stand those little corona beasts. As for me I just calculate the risks one or two times a week and then just abide to my math results. Currently the stats are as following, based on those officially published numbers: 1 in 4 has been infected so far, 1 in 2359 has died and 1 in 20 is currently infected. So hurry up winning the lottery, because that’s more difficult than to die from corona and avoid crowds or meetings with more than about 20 people. That’s all to it, of course besides the common behavior like disinfecting, wearing a mask among other people, basic immunization with vaccines and such. That in combination worked for me and surely works for anyone else too. Until we catch it then anyway one day sooner or later, because in practice nothing is done, although a successful NoCovid strategy could have been successfully applied right from the beginning. Obviously it’s quite a bit too late now, even the Chinese had to give in, because all the stupid rest didn’t cooperate accordingly.

So they threw the baby out with the bath water? Or they dropped the ball from the start by not immunising the population properly over the three years of intensive lockdown?

Your analysis is deeply flawed and unscientific. Risk assessment is what is needed not one size fits all mindset. Your fatality numbers if adjusted to age groups would show a stealing difference. The average age of a Covid death is 82 and that person is usually in poor health. The chances of a non obese non senior dying of the current variants is incredibly, for children so low they wouldn’t even show up on a graph.

Assessing possible damage due to constant vaccines also should be made as would hiding away and masking up to make sure you catch non illnesses. The immune system needs to be used or I severely comprised.

Time to remember to avoid the 3 Cs, (closed spaces, crowded places, and close-contact settings),

the significance of wearing a mask is also shown at the bottom of the following web link,
