Tokyo reports 8,855 new coronavirus cases

Huge numbers compared to one year ago! :O

And even huger numbers compared to two years ago! :O

But it's a completely different variant. Much milder. Especially when factoring in that most have been infected already or vaccinated.

60% increase from yesterday…. Wth…: get lined up for your vaccination asap !

-5 ( +7 / -12 )

Only really antiscientific people think information produce fear, for most people information leads to better decisions and less anxiety.

You're right, but only by accident. Disinformation does stoke fear, and you've been a promoter of it since this whole affair began.

Not at all, being systematically biased against scientific information is what makes them afraid of accepting what can be demonstrated with evidence.

Disinformation does stoke fear, and you've been a promoter of it since this whole affair began.

Giving up from using arguments and instead trying badly thought personal attacks is a clear way to demonstrate who is the one spreading disinformation. If you had any actual evidence to defend what you believed you would be using it instead of ad hominem fallacies.

Sad to see how little importance you give to hundreds of deaths every day, but their doctors and families would completely disagree with you about this "runny nose". If your argument depends completely on having no empathy for the people that get sick, hospitalized or die maybe it is time to think carefully why it you need these arguments to defend what you believe.

But you told everyone the vaccines worked and stopped death and stopped transmission …what happened? The infection and death rate now is higher than it has ever been. Ipso facto the vaccines designed for an extinct variant are worthless! Along with the new vaccine which has been tested on those poor 8 mice only, well that isn’t even worth discussing! 5000 people sadly die everyday in Japan. I am also very sceptical, based on a lot of the evidence showing the way most died WITH not FROM Covid, of the reporting parameters…

If we were all asked who to take medical advice from on here, Virusrex would probably be top of that list.

You, Sanji and the other antivaxxing quack-remedy strawman bro-science crew would be on quite a separate list altogether.

And they do, but not to a 100%, the vaccines still reduce very importantly the worst consequences of the infection, pretending the omicron variant is not responsible for the increase in the number of cases is obviously just disinformation. The rate of death per thousand infections is now much much lower than last year for example, so no, the rates are not at their highest as you mistakenly say.

I am also very sceptical, based on a lot of the evidence showing the way most died WITH not FROM Covid, of the reporting parameters…

The medical professionals that actually deal with the patients are the ones saying covid is a very important contributor to their deaths, and that without the infection the patients would be able to live still long productive lives, do you have any evidence that they are all wrong? or is this also something you just assumed because of complete lack of empathy?

Do you also believe malnutrition is not a problem anywhere in the world because the millions of children that die every year do it "with" malnutrition but not "by" it?
