Peak will be soon

Yeah, one day you'll be right repeating it every day ...

Hey! The conspiracy people said numbers would be higher today! 

never on mondays as it's week-end's numbers.

You failed !

Yeah, one day you'll be right repeating it every day

Tiresome isn't it.

14 ( +19 / -5 )

You have any evidence for that?

I’m going by data from this country and analysing data from countries where Omicron peaked earlier

which data do you use?

so your data must define the "soon", so please elaborate on this duration.

Because, the "soon" wasn't the same in South Africa, UK or France ...

What's the scale of "soon" for Japan ?

Please, give us a number of days to see how good you are in analyzing data.

Up from 8303 in Tokyo last Monday. The numbers are higher.

Peak will be soon.

Why do you care when the peak is? You are always preaching how the numbers don't matter.

Do you really need to be in the Hospital if you have flu like symptoms? I think not.

Flu is among the leading causes of death for respiratory illnesses

6 ( +9 / -3 )

That means the majority of deaths are NOT healthy, young people. This statement from the WHO backs up what others have been saying.. ELDERLY DEATHS!

Phew! That's a relief.

Lucky there's not many in Japan who fit that description, right?

I’m going by data from this country and analysing data from countries where Omicron peaked earlier

So how many are dying of flu? You still haven't posted your data regarding that.

That means the majority of deaths are NOT healthy, young people. This statement from the WHO backs up what others have been saying.. ELDERLY DEATHS!

So you learned something new today.

Congratulations.

Down 4,144 Great Job with the Manbou.

Smoke and Mirrors, the daily numbers make no sense at all and one has to be

a fool to believe the numbers.

My friend got a mail from her kid's elementary school that a number of kids have

tested positive for covid 19, the classes were not disclosed and they summed it up

that the welfare center has investigated and there is no close contact among the kids

and staff. Unbelievable, that they reached the conclusion that there is no close

contact without testing the kids and staff. They really take the general population for fools.

FACT: People of all ages can be infected by the COVID-19 virus

Congrats. We finally agree on something.

Mondays which reports the tests taken on Sundays when there is always even less testing than usual. Always a drop from the day before although one can note it is far higher than the same day the week before. And it will be followed by a bigger spike tomorrow. It is the Japanese way and just goes to show how meaningless the Japanese numbers are other than showing there are a lot of case these days

I don't think we will see a peak until everyone goes mask-less. The sole reason why it spread as fast as it did in the west.

It's looking like only serious cases rather than overall hospital bed occupancy are being emphasized instead.

Yes, when Koike announced the 50% occupancy rate, the occupancy rate was something like 5%, so it seemed like an impossible number to reach.

Now that it has reached it (actually 49.2% miraculously), they moved the goal-post by telling people to stay home and self-treat (how well that worked out the last time).

So you are correct, they will not declare a SOE, not that it would make any difference, so they are not wrong.

Still the daily underestimating. No, you are not safe if young and slim, because those viruses go into every body’s regions and organs and form persisting clusters. Higher age groups, otherwise vulnerable or having issues, obese etc., they pay the price quickly, that’s right, but you deniers will pay too, at least with earlier organ damages and a quite lower (average) life expectancy. On the long run, ‘aging society’ will become an unknown vocabulary for everyone, if that long and post Covid symptom issue isn’t considered soon.

It'll be over 120k by the end of the week. Lucky the vaccines work so well.......

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

A reminder the coronavirus is what it is. A virus that cannot be destroyed so we might as well get use to getting booster shots as if they are regular flu shots. This virus is not going away.

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

It’s staggering that we’ve got this far and still so many people posting on here simply don’t understand the importance of vaccinations, as well as the implications of a high daily case number, and low numbers of tests.

@steve

Well, yes, you're right to a certain degree. I just find the numbers worrying, and little compliance with rules in the population. Which is strange for Japanese people

-2 ( +4 / -6 )

Luckily I'm fully vaccinated, so my symptoms are mild. I had the same headache as I had after the second vaccine

-2 ( +5 / -7 )

So according to the link, yesterday there were 5,557 tests.

And we have 11,751 positives.

Can anyone explain that to me?

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Seems like the weekly increases are starting to flatten out. I guess the jgov doing nothing, wasting time, and laying low was the correct strategy after all. Nature is running its course.

What makes living in a western democracy any better than living in a communist one? At least in China, I dont need to pay taxes.

Western 'democracy' or so-called democracy or dictatorship of the bourgeois is the most accurate.

Of course in China you need to pay tax. Just not much if you are a worker but a s##t load if you are a capitalist.

Declaring a SoE is pointless. They should downgrade the classification of Omicron to reflect its lower fatality rate and thus make it much easier for more hospitals to accept Omicron patients who for the most part will only be needing a few days of support and monitoring. I would agree that we are probably not far from the peak - probably within the next couple of weeks going by what we've seen elsewhere. Could be dragged out a little longer by the fact that most people wear masks here at all times, so flattening and lengthening the curve slightly - not a bad thing. The case numbers are a bit meaningless at this point - the real number of cases could be anything - 5, 10, 15 times what it being reported.

SOE talk is regressive and so is fear mongering. If people wish to bunker down and be afraid, you are free to do so, but others wish for normality whilst taking sensible precautions of course.

Doubtful an SoE is going to happen after recent announcements. It's looking like only serious cases rather than overall hospital bed occupancy are being emphasized instead.

Also if you look at the caseloads in Okinawa, you get a rough idea of what the peak would look like in Tokyo and other population centers.

No rational person based in Japan (there are maybe three or four of us on this message board) wants needless SoE restrictions creating further economic havoc. The situation with this particular variant (80-90% of cases with no symptoms) is fine.

For Moderna and Pfizer Vaccines Remember to get fully vaccinated, means 2X - twice - 二回

Those fully vaccinated should get BOOSTER after 5 months, 五ヶ月 事後, ブースター after being fully vaccinated.

Weekend numbers so lower, but the peak of this wave is almost here if it hasn't arrived already. Omicron is COVID's last gasp - will be great to see a return to normality soon.

Nothung to do with test numbers, it’s due to factual information which you must be capable of analysing. Conspiracy theories about test numbers etc are anti scientific and spread disinformation

John

it seems you only judge the situation from the media and an emotional basis but I prefer to deal with facts, whether people like that facts is neither here nor there.

Yep will never go over 17 G. Ceiling has been hit. That was a quick ride! Now onto the next wave in April /May.

Peak will be soon. As we see severe cases and deaths do not spiral out of control. You only have to be concerned if you are of very senior years, morbidly obese or have other serious health condition. Of course a minuscule amount of younger non obese will have severe cases and sadly some may die, but it’s so rare as to be insignificant in the larger picture

SOE talk is regressive and so is fear mongering. If people wish to bunker down and be afraid, you are free to do so, but others wish for normality whilst taking sensible precautions of course.
