No they aren't. Just look at China!!!

Japan has a much higher infection rate, while China's economy is growing stronger than Japan's.

The internet scientists declared the 8th wave over .!. This must be the start of the 9th wave .!. Mask up to prevent yourself from infecting others .!. If you’re still for some reason not vaccinated or boosted…. Get your jabs … mRNA of course started asap .!. Do not endanger the lives of those around you…. Particularly your own family .!. They should not be more afraid of you than Covid.!. Follow the 3 C’s people .!. Nearly half a million people still hospitalized from the 8th wave .!.

Japan has a much higher infection rate, while China's economy is growing stronger than Japan's.

Considering China's data is proven to be unreliable, I find that hard to believe.

And what's "economy" got to do with " Numbers still excessively high"?

You are obviously trolling, but carry on with the misinformation.

Not sure what 'masking up' will do to numbers.

Latest scientific studies say otherwise.

High cases still but downward trend as was always going to happen as spring approaches and the fact so many of the population have been infected the antibodies and natural immunity level is high. Good times.

As for the mask thing - c'mon - even the most ardent supporters have to give it up now as it's embarrassing on all levels. Not just because the latest comprehensive study - looking at many studies - all show no effectiveness, but the case numbers in East Asia - esp. Japan, tell us this. Masks are solely about collective conformity, social anxiety and, in some cases, sheer vanity.
