Covid will end here on May 8
For the statistically inclined, the rolling 7-day average for today is:
Confirmed infections: 58,112, down 2,824 from 60,936 yesterday, 18 days since the peak of 176,025 on 2023/1/12
Severe cases: 584, down 22 from 606 yesterday, 11 days since the peak of 689 on 2023/1/18
Deaths: 324, down 11 from 335 yesterday, 11 days since the peak of 425 on 2023/1/18
Personal interpretation: The downward trend in cases is steady but has slowed down considerably over the last few days, indicating that we may be in the "tapering out" phase of the wave and we have entered the "home stretch". All numbers and trends considered, we should be looking at a mid-2022 pre-wave low in about a month. We just don't have to stumble on the last few meters.

Looking forward to it. Not much longer for the unvaxed members of society until they can feel they are not in danger anymore.
I wish these were posted in the main article.
It is a Sunday, so these daily figures don't say much.
Numbers are obviously declining and the 8th wave will be over soon. I predict (I’m no Nostradamus btw!) that the 9th and final wave will begin at the end of March and peak around May 8, the day the government declares the pandemic over! That’s typical Japanese backward logic for you.
Never wanted you on the team. Teams require teamwork, and you've not got the skills required. Sorry.
I think Flat Earth F.C. are looking for team members. They are bottom of the league and looking for players as half the team is in hospital with 'flu'.
A very low number of cases for a country with around 130,000,000 people.
Let's get over it already, everyone. It's basically just the flu.
We don't have to wait till May 8 to see that.
