Covid is basically a non story everywhere except Japan and China. What does that tell you?

that society is ignoring the problem but ignoring it does not make it go away.

It's a non story. Stop reporting it and get back to normal like the rest of the world. Lose the masks which clearly did nothing to stop the spread but kept the fear and harm, especially where children's learning and social development is concerned. Everyone wearing them outside in 30 plus heat for fear of looking different is embarrassing. Just stop it.

If there were daily suicide counts or deaths caused on the roads many would all be shocked and hysterical about that too. There aren't so no one is.

Is covid now less deadly than the flu? Given that the late queen survived covid a few months back, not to mention the oldest woman on the planet had the Delta variant but was unaware - I'd say yes. This is no more deadly than the flu - difference being for many it's much milder. Indeed many don't even know they had it. When you have the flu you know.

Move on.

Right you are Brian.

Ignoring the problem of burning tax dollars from buying more vaccine boosters, developing useless contract tracing / proof of vaccination applications / MySOS, and also strict entry restrictions, will not make them go away. It's time to correct the mistake.

For all my proud vax supporters, I thought I'd put this question out there seeing as how, per NHK data, the number of Covid-19 deaths in a fully vaccinated and largely boosted Japan (2022) exceeds that of an unvaccinated Japan with less treatment options and a deadlier version of the virus (2020-2021):

Can someone, without engaging in massive speculation or hearsay, provide an actual estimate for how many lives the vaccines are thought to have saved? Just curious, because more people seem to be dying now than before. I know the virus is more transmissible now, but even with that being the case, how is that acceptable, and why do people think that sells a success story for the vaccines? It seems like they largely failed to prevent transmission, and unfortunately could not prevent much in the way of fatalities.

This is incorrect. Recent research has concluded that only a quarter of people carrying the flu virus display symptoms.

Why pretend the omicron variant is not causing more cases? or that the rate of deaths per number of infected people is not much lower this year? is it because it proves the opposite of what you wanted to say?

Can someone, without engaging in massive speculation or hearsay, provide an actual estimate for how many lives the vaccines are thought to have saved?

Taking into account the difference in death rates between vaccinated and unvaccinated people it usually goes close to 10 times higher for unvaccinated people, so in oversimplified terms as you ask it has prevented 90% of the deaths in vaccinated people.

Except that nowhere near as the increase in the number of cases, which contradicts completely your point.

 I know the virus is more transmissible now, but even with that being the case, how is that acceptable,

that is the thing, when something can be proved with objective data they are acceptable for anybody that can think rationally and accept

and why do people think that sells a success story for the vaccines? 

Easy, because it can be proved that unvaccinated people get more complications, hospitalizations and die much more frequently, which is why the vaccines are recommended as something very effective and safe by every institution of science or medicine in the wordl.
