Very encouraging to read.

 The nationwide figure is 61

Less than the amount of people in my train carriage to work this morning.

Numbers going up; a new wave is on the horizon.

Ruddy good news regarding nobody with severe symptoms in Tokyo, bravo

Those doomsday chaps were wrong again predicting a surge after Golden Week, some of the things they say are so funny

Time for us all to enjoy life to the full, too many have been isolating and afraid when they weren’t even vulnerable, I blame the media mostly.

Im traveling the country almost daily mixing business with pleasure and I do notice place are far busier lately, flights and Shinkansen are still much less crowded though.

What’s this ? The highly irresponsible and dangerous behaviors of the minority in Osaka lead the country in new cases ? Might as well …. They’ve been leading in total number of deaths from the beginning. I for 1 am sure glad the oft repeated patently false prediction that “we’re all gonna be infected and there’s no way to stop it” hasn’t even remotely come close to true . As for some truth though …. The actual number of hospitalizations has been on a steady decline. That’s a huge positive.

Hospitalizations 140,740

Change from previous day -7,716

Now if the highly irresponsible minority from around the country would join the majority in mitigation, we could start to move forward a little quicker . Tourism is back ! Full speed ahead ! But as for putting out this fire known as Covid, I’m also glad the jgov is relying on sound science to completely extinguish it ! Thank goodness the media has also done their responsible part in reporting factual statements and data as it pertains to Japan! Not some junk science websites without a single medical doctor. Keep safe people! Get vaccinated…. It only hurts for a day or 2. Don’t be scared…. No more excuses. Mask up when necessary! Follow the 3 C’s….

Covid19 is never going away. It has been troublesome these last couple of years as it was a novel strain of coronavirus with high transmissibility and a nasty lower respiratory viral load for which we had no resistance. Thankfully due to the omicron variant being milder (mildER, not saying its simply mild) than earlier strains, exposure through infection and vaccinations its starting to settle back towards infection levels comparable with other more familiar viruses.

This slowing of dimishing cases suggests its approaching something around an ERN of 1 which would mean a ~1:1 constant trickle of new and reinfections which other forms of coronavirus, rhinovirus, novovirus etc have existed through for millenia.

It hopefully won't be long until like other countries - covid19 isn't even the deadliest ongoing endemic virus anymore... though like influenza for example, it will continue to cause deaths among the elderly and immunocompromised for decades or beyond.

Covid done… now we just have to wait for the July elections so they can truly open the border to all and return to a semblance or normality!

It's an endimic. Deal with it.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

These numbers are about 5 times the number in the same day last year.

And even those infected who are not hooked up to ventilators could be suffering long term symptoms.

Deal with it by keeping your masks on. Eating at home. Drinking at home. Staying out of closed, not-well ventilated establishments. Small measures that do not have to interrupt your ordinary life.

Simple rules to live by.

You’re right Sanji ! Book your flight now ! Come on …
