Number of new coronavirus-related deaths in Japan surges to 88,unknown how many were vaccinated/same thing applies for cases/.

1 ( +18 / -17 )

Who cares?

Who cares?

noone

-15 ( +21 / -36 )

That not-caring-method obviously fails even more than the NoCovid strategy.

5 ( +16 / -11 )

I care. I would like to know why this surge is happening. People wear masks and and get inoculated. There are no obvious rebellions. The Tokyo Olympics are ancient history. Tourists have been screened. Everything is supposed squeaky clean in Japan--and it's not.

12 ( +33 / -21 )

up again, am I the only person that sees the masks don’t work at all? Yet we continue to wear them till when?

-1 ( +28 / -29 )

A wave every 3 months forever!

7 ( +20 / -13 )

The question is not who cares, but should we care? If so, until when? What are the criteria for accepting this as an inevitable cause of death?

-7 ( +8 / -15 )

Over this nonsense already !!!

-1 ( +15 / -16 )

I think mask has been the working for me… coz I have never been vaccinated. Many I know got infected even though they have been multiple vaxxed and also masked…

-10 ( +11 / -21 )

Wearing a mask in crowded places during a pandemic is common sense. Getting a safe vaccine if you are at risk is common sense. The rest depends on the individual.

10 ( +25 / -15 )

Who cares?

The family and friends of the 88 who died today and the family / friends of the thousands who have died in Japan due to the corona virus over the past three years!

When you lose your loved ones to corona, then maybe you’ll stop making insensitive comments about it!

Considering the very high rate of those who have received the jabs, and the vast majority of people are still wearing masks, something appears to NOT be working....

3 ( +18 / -15 )

How can this even be possible? The 8th wave was over before it started …

Yes, double plus good! It’s going to be around for years but off the radar really I guess unless a more dangerous variant or virus appears suddenly from the wild or located next to a lab.

This is precisely what happens when what minor requests were dropped far too soon .!. And since we know the only people getting tested are legitimately sick .!. This is NOT some cold or flu.!. The increase in new cases was correctly predicted by the jgov just 3 weeks ago .!. So he we are back to a full blown out of control pandemic.!. Mask up , vax up , stay outta the bars .!. Avoid all forms of public transportation.!.

-8 ( +11 / -19 )

for those wanting restrictions again, good luck. That ship has sailed. Even Japan gov knows they can’t afford that head in the sand mentality again. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m heading to train station and will sit very close to people with no mask on.

For that you would need to know the number of cases, hospitalizations and deaths without the measures, without that number you could not know if things are working or not.

-1 ( +12 / -13 )

Ummm 26 people in hospital with severe symptoms in Tokyo 257 Japan wide! When is the media going to stop with the hysteria??

2 ( +19 / -17 )

This bit of simple logic seems to evade most people here.

4 ( +10 / -6 )

I know the reason.

Japanese wares mask but they go drink with others.

Therefore this is useless to ware masks in Japan.

1 ( +11 / -10 )

Highly masked, highly vaxxed yet Japan continues to be pummeled by high case numbers. At what point are we allowed to actually aggressively question the veracity and effectiveness of those above measures?

Well in one way the public in Japan is responding regarding the latest booster that has been a viable since early September, Current take up rate is a paltry 8%, people are believing this stuff any longer. Hopefully they will realise cloth masks are also pretty useless.

My wife and I, and one daughter and her husband, got the Omicron booster. We are well. Two daughters did not get the Omicron booster. They, their husbands, and daughter, all have covid.

Get your Omicron booster shot.

Told you all Japan opened the borders too early, told you all this is and was not over. And how many at home today that actually should be in the hospital that cannot get in, we’ll never know.

-13 ( +6 / -19 )

Close borders. Social distance. Masks. More boosters. etc etc......

All those measures worked perfectly before.

-5 ( +9 / -14 )

Our government authorities announced 2 million people had Covid yesterday in UK but life has returned to normal in the UK no masks no social distancing. However I don't believe this figure as that would mean 104 million people have had Covid over the last 12 months when the UK population is about 66 million maybe be its a vaccination drive as just over half the people entitled to a booster have taken it up. Myself and my wife had both the Covid booster and flu vaccinations.

Japan is determined to extend the misery as long as possible. It’s their nature. Gaman, Gaman.

-7 ( +11 / -18 )

Nearly 100 millions did not get Covid and do lack the minimum of natural immunity, which the vaccine does not provide

-3 ( +5 / -8 )

You get jabbed up to 5 times with a substance that doesn't prevent infection or transmission. You wear a paper mask that does next to nothing. You sit behind plastic screens and compromise your natural immunity with constant disinfection of your hands. Please stop with all the nonsense.

-12 ( +10 / -22 )

Numbers of cases are useless. It seems the latest variant is not very dangerous. Politicians: time to announce it is over and start plastering posters everywhere with the requisite cute chara to remove the masks and "magic' plastic curtains/partitions. Then, we can go back to enjoying life here in Japan.

Getting silly now isn't it? For those that claim it would be worse without masks, you can compare with unmasked countries that are doing far better if you wish.

Or when masks were not the norm.

Or when the vaccines were not rolled out en masse

Different times. But you can compare and contrast.

And there is a contrast.

-1 ( +6 / -7 )

People wear masks

Many on their chins or at least with their noses fully poking out. Unfortunately, masks are not some magical force field that provide protection just by being on your person as many seem to think they do.

2 ( +7 / -5 )

What’s the point of wearing masks all day if you eat inside packed, unventilated restaurants? Long Covid patients have packed the waiting rooms at major hospitals and there’s no cure in sight.

-2 ( +8 / -10 )

Maria

There is no evidence of Long Covid patients filling up appointment rooms.

5 ( +13 / -8 )

Way more than this. I know of untold studetns and young people especially who got symptoms and never got tested. Also, myself included in that. Couldn't be bothered dealing with having to get to a testing station, contact work sbout it take so many days off, etc. Just slept it off instead.
