Good news! I hope Kishida-san will reconsider severe re-entry restrictions.

Where the heck is everybody? Hello, hello...

Since you asked:

And the miracles continue.

With those low numbers (I hope they're correct) anything and everything is possible ......

...... for the time being.

If Omicron spreads and the symptoms turn out to be mild, given that Japan keeps a low testing policy, we might not see any rise here. It is an interesting experiment.

Exactly. This could be the end of the pandemic. Of course, Pfizer et al would be angry.

Yes, so far the symptoms appear to be mild and quite different from previous variants: unusual tired feeling, scratchy throat, occasional mild cough, body aches (no heavy cough, no stuffy nose, no lose of smell, and no trouble breathing). Hmmm, maybe I had Omicron a week or two ago.... I never thought of getting tested.

Key word here is "so far". We've come this far, why not remain cautious for another month or two to see what Omicron is really all about. If it turns out to be highly infectious, but very mild, then let it rip.

Somebody here seems to be really irritated when Tokyo reports low infections these days. As a resident, I feel good and pray the situation won’t get worse.

Yes, it seems some enjoy the panic, the scare, the restrictions, and want to continue this.

Yep, 11 today for Tokyo's 14,000,000 people.

And 13 positive cases found at the airports today within the incoming international travelers (out of a maximum allowance of 3,500 entrants).

Wonder how many of the 13 are the big O?

@divinda. I also wondered how many are the “little” o.

Really... @Raw Beer. Are you going to continually post links via various websites of Anglique Coetzee from last weekend? We know very little yet and I am well aware of your views on vaccines, but putting that aside, is this just a further attempt to further ignore the huge health crisis of the last two years and continue to be so blasé? I don't care what the symptoms are, I am much more concerned about further people dying that don't need to. Your wretched views on social distancing and mask wearing are deplorable. Is there not even a middle ground you will accept? I wouldn't wish this in anybody, but I wonder if your views would change if a family member or friend was severely sickened by this?

Good news, keep it like this!

Nicely said!

The following description you make is not at all differnt from the frequent mild symptoms present in previous variants. Additionally good to see you consider trust worhty a source that completely contradicted your claim that vaccinated people were more frequent than expected or that there is no chance of the disease actually being much more serious once properly investigated.
