A slight rise in cases. Probably due to less masks so is expected
Infection and vaccination are thought to heighten immunity to the virus. And elderly people need to continue protecting themselves through vaccination and masks, because they have a higher risk of falling seriously ill if they catch the virus.
Nope, just in comparison to the underreporting yesterday becaus of the public holiday two days ago. Day-on-day comparisons are pointless, averages show that the number is still steadily going down.
Well said as always Elvis
It’s all rather meaningless at this point anyway - most people are getting mild symptoms and don’t bother getting tested - probably the reason for the steadily declining numbers is more to do with it slowly fading from the public consciousness leading even fewer people to get tested.
40 deaths far from over.
take care stay safe everyone.
Good Low Numbers, shame about the beastly weather in Osaka, though saw plenty of people about, tons of tourists too.
