Extremely high numbers compared to before the pandemic actually started. Omicron is the deadliest variant when you consider it replaced other variants very early on and is therefore the one almost everyone has had.

Don't listen to jgov, instead wear masks outside and avoid going in public, my own stricter measures are superior. Hopefully we can really drag this thing out by throttling infection rates and delaying collective immunity.

Hopefully no more pandemic. No more state of emergency please. Life should go normal forever again. However, its better to wear mask until covid dies.

Would be nice to know which variant is prevalent. It is omicron 4 or 5 behind the uptick in numbers I wonder?

Down here Monday's numbers are always lower than any other day of the week, as is the rest of Japan as well from what I have heard, because of lower testing as many sites take Sunday off.

However, here in Okinawa when the Monday's numbers increase from the previous week, like today 603 vs 422 last week, it is an indicator that the rest of the week will have higher numbers than the previous week as well. The statistics bear this out as well.

The fortunate or unfortunate, depending upon one's point of view, is that even when the numbers escalate now, not all that many people give a damn anymore.

We had over 1500 the other day, and tourists are literally all over the place, and every major shopping center or tourist spot is doing great business.

Delta was the "deadliest" but just burned itself out before everyone died, and omicron came the "newest" variant. If Delta stuck around, odds are you and I would not be having this discu............
