still 57 deaths.
remember so called Tokyo olympics days?deathes were fewer however stadiums were empty,lockdowns,facemasks,vinyls here and there,plenty of "covid science"...so different than today.
wondering how many deaths were vaccinated as we never see that info/maybe its top secret or pharma does not want t show to public to show unefficiency or their so called vaccines?highly likely so/.
anyway take care everyone,enjoy nice spring as sakuras are around corners
Yes, unfortunately. The 7-day average of deaths has been hovering around 60 for the last ten days, today is the first day it has slightly declined. Let's hope that trend continues.
Unfortunately, that info would not tell you much of anything. It may have been useful some two years ago. But in the meantime so many people have had an infection and consequently a "vaccination au naturel" that there is no uniformly "unvaccinated" group anymore. Consequently, one cannot draw any conclusions from the vaccinated vs. unvaccinated deaths ratio, that time has thoroughly passed.
At the very least, by now this is something everybody needs to universally acknowledge: that the Covid-related controversy surrounding the Tokyo Olympics was completely unwarranted. I would even argue them pushing it back to 2021 from 2020 was a bad idea.

All in all, because of the robust vaccine program and people's overall compliance with official guidelines the worst did not happen.
That's an unbelievable sum.
A doctor we know over here in Cali says that there are a lot of people hospitalized with Covid, but many fewer deaths than a few years ago.
Japan has had 1/3 as many cases result in death as the USA, despite the aging at-risk population! Goes to show how effective the compliant adoption of vaccines, masks and distancing were during the pandemic.
Glad it’s finally all blown over though and life is almost entirely back to how it was.
That's very much an understatement. At 57 deaths per 100k population, Japan had a sixth of the US (341) -- also a quarter of Sweden (235) and less than a third of Germany (203).
If what we just exited was indeed the last big wave, Japan got through the pandemic with only a few bruises.
