Wow !!! 76% increase in Tokyo in 1 day…. Wrong direction people….

What a breaking news! Wow!

Seriously, when is this mask bs gonna get kicked to the curb? Getting outright ridiculous at this point.

It’s only as ridiculous as you allow it to be. All you need to do is remove it.

Do your part. I am. The more people that see you without a mask, the more people that will be encouraged to do so as well. Because you know everyone wants to but no one wants to stand out.

it will be like a domino effect. Mind you, in slow motion but it will happen

For those that have trouble understanding the numbers on Monday and Tuesdays (for all the good it will do as I’m convinced certain people just troll)

posted numbers are from the day before.

Therefore, Numbers posted on Mondays reflect Sunday’s positives. Sunday’s numbers always low because most clinics are closed and not much testing occurs.

The best comparisons are against last weeks numbers. So compare this Tuesday numbers against last Tuesday’s numbers (down 562).

if some people can’t legitimately wrap their head around that then… well….

“There are 1,800 unhappy persons somewhere out there in Tokyo today”

maybe but it is not the end of the world as most people would recover in a few days. Many of my family members and friends and colleagues got it and recovered. Some said their booster shot’s side effects were even worse than getting COVID. I don’t want to get any of these things though. Am unvaccinated but practiced common sense to stay healthy, go to work, live my life.

Great news. Time to unmask and enjoy the great outdoors! Wooo.
