Numbers creeping back up, bringing us ever closer to herd immunity.

Japan reports 97 new coronavirus-related deaths.

just curious how many from cases and deaths were vaccinated?

top secret info for masses from very start of these "daily updates".

why cant we know this important information?

are you hiding something?

that so called vaccines were ineffective at least?

An upward trend still!!

Masks and vaccines are not working here.

Global experts were advising from the beginning that the Japan model is not the right strategy.

The experts were right.

Close the borders and shut everything down. Things can only get worse. Etc.

-24 ( +3 / -27 )

Somethings must not be working for increasing cases like this. Hmmmmm. Wonder what people are doing wrong here?

More than 80% of Japanese are now vaccinated. We’re seeing proof that vaccines don’t work.

-2 ( +11 / -13 )

Plenty of references that are easily accessible to people like us not in the medical industry.

But none that you could even bring? that would clearly indicate this is false. It is not surprising that nobody has read something that you just pulled out of thin air.

So the WHO gave the wrong advice? 

No as explained several times to you, the evidence for the efficacy of masks in the general population and asymptomatic patients was obtained DURING the pandemic, and was reflected in the change of advice from all international health authorities including the CDC, EMA, WHO, etc.

According to what you wrote the WHO was wrong

That is still mistaken, and would require that this evidence found during the pandemic was available before it began, something you said before you could prove but later accepted there was no evidence you could ever bring to support that claim.

The fatality rates per case of infection say the opposite, which is why all medical institutions of the world (including Japanese ones) contradicts your claim.

I wonder what percentage of these new cases are of people who have gotten 3 of the covid shots and possibly the new combined covid/flu shot.

97 out of 125,000,000 people is very high. Don’t go outside.

Probably quite high. Shall we jump to the bit where you claim that they 'don't work' or are 'making it worse'? Perhaps you can have a side rant about masks too? Maybe even a bit of 'same as the flu' on the side?

I wonder what percentage of these new cases are of people who have gotten 3 of the covid shots....

I wonder how many aren't vaccinated and don't wear mask?

Both very valid questions, and I wish real Journalists would investigate and share their findings.

Whatever the answers, it would be helpful in judging the situation based on facts, instead of guessing, which all of us are doing here, because there are no facts available! Why not?

Watch the goalposts move in real time. It was never about stopping the spread! We just want to reduce the symptoms when you inevitably get reinfected after your 4th booster and rebound paxlovid case. Also the masks are really working! Keeps those on, kids! You don't want to look weird in front of your classmates!

Both very valid questions, and I wish real Journalists would investigate and share their findings.

But are you able to correctly make conclusions about the answers? what would you think if someone says 99% of the drivers that die in car accidents were using seat belts? or if someone says that 90% of the people that are involved in car accidents survive and were not using any seat belt?

Would this information (incomplete and biased) help making a better decision? or would you prefer something where everything is put in context, with controls and details to help judging the importance, and including many much more cases than one single day?

That is what scientific reports are, which are the ones guiding the professionals that recommend vaccines as very effective health interventions because of the huge amount of evidence that support them.

And the best thing is that those reports are mostly open for the examination of anybody with the interest on the topic and willing to put forward the effort to understand them.

Watch the goalposts move in real time. It was never about stopping the spread! We just want to reduce the symptoms when you inevitably get reinfected after your 4th booster and rebound paxlovid case.

You still have not brought the supposed people that promised vaccines to be absolutely effective preventing everything no matter what variants appeared in the future.

It is not moving the goalposts when you arbitrarily make up goalposts that nobody put and then complain the real ones are in a different place.

Got it.attended an event in a huge indoor event in Yokohama and they had craxy Covid measures in place. It was like trying to make a prison visit. Lined up for ages to get in (due to measures in place. Even had to write something saying been vaccinated, (only twice,against my will) didn't have any symptoms, etc). Most insane thing. And then I got it anyway. Resting today. Feels similar to a mild hangover.

A downward trend compared to a few months ago!

Nah just joking, but it seems @painkiller has finally grasped what a trend is.

@virusrex,

I think you might actually be joking. In the US the CDC and Tony Fauci as well as multitude public health mouthpieces claimed 100% safe and effective against infection. You should get the new vaccine so you don't spread it to anyone. That was claim at the beginning of the campaign. Along with smearing anyone who claimed otherwise.

And yet no link whatsoever, specially about the variants, why would that be? Likely what you are claiming everybody said is simply false, something you wish they said so they would be wrong, but not what what actually claimed.

Again, why can't you bring any source where experts said the vaccines would protect 100% guaranteed against any and all variants? You say everybody said this, it should be easy to find it.
