Monday is the day after Sunday when most hospitals are closed. Statistics

Good to see the numbers falling again. 8th wave will be over by the end of the week.

-12 ( +4 / -16 ) are probably right in that the case numbers will "decline" starting around the end of the week, which just happens to coincide with New Years and the basic 6 day shutdown of the country. Fewer testing centers will be open and....yeah, you know where this is going, right?

These numbers are actually still me of the worst japan has seen Since the beginning of the pandemic and not something to be taken lightly.

0 ( +5 / -5 )

When will the madness end? Do they even have an exit plan??

Travelled home for Christmas (Merry Christmas everyone). Haven't seen a mask since transferring at Heathrow.

Really drives home the absurdity of day to day Tokyo life where they wear masks outside but take them off for their coffee/half pint highballs. Every person knows it's an exercise in futility/keeping up appearances now.


You're right - Long Covid has been blown up out of all sense of reason. Only a few cases actually result in any long term severe problems. Most real cases being a scratchy throat for a few months. But try telling that to the people who hang out on long covid forums who live in a massive confirmation bias chamber.
