What a miracle, Japan now dropped from world no. 2 to world no. 3 in weekly deaths.

Coronavirus-related deaths or being 100 with a case of coronavirus-related deaths? Maybe these centenarians who died who happened to die while being infected with corona would have not died if their local hospital would have admitted them? But the local hospitals couldn’t have admitted them because they had Covid.

In any case rise in deaths is I guess expected as measures are relaxed.

Shocking to know 0.0001pc of population suffering from severe covid (or having it while suffering with countless other complications in advanced age).

We must keep masking outside for eternity to protect ourselves and those at risk from this most dangerous of viruses. More plastic dividers needed too! And fgs - sanitize and keep the paper towel holders empty and hand dryers off!!

Good Low Numbers as we head into Spring and the lovely Cherry Blossom viewing where we can enjoy fun with our friends and family.

I don’t get what everyone is complaining about with regards to people still wearing masks and etc

they aren’t mandated so you don’t have to wear them if you don’t want to.

I don’t and I haven’t worn them for quite a while now and even I’m getting annoyed at hearing people complain about them…

what do you care if someone is wearing a mask etc.? has no impact on you. Enough already!

isn’t that what pro-choice is all about?
