Ever since the numbers have been coming down significantly, JT has not reported on the NUMBER OF TESTS performed like they used to before...

Click on the red “new coronavirus numbers”. You can see quite a lot of information, including testing

Still high, should be under 100.

Tokyo was 70, up down seven from Wednesday

Up or down?

Anyway, looking at the hospitalizations and deaths, Japan is in a relatively decent place at this moment in time. Over 170 million vaccines administered.

What happened to the strong vaccine hesitancy predicted by our anti-vaxxers? I don’t usually watch films, but I did watch ‘It’ the other day. The clown shriveling up at the end reminded me of it.

No benefit whatsoever - Some people just seem to think there is a conspiracy. Simple. (As I expect you know)

80 million fully vaxxed…the rest with natural immunity!

80 million fully vaxxed...the rest waiting and a tiny squealing coward minority who are scared of a little jab in the arm.

Far different situation than a year ago. We had the more contagious Delta variant that caused higher numbers and now we have a large amount of the population vaccinated.

BS! This has been the case for a while now. For example here when the number of positive cases surpassed 5000.

Just stop with the silly conspiracy theories.

Opinion surveys results in Japan were showing a strong hesitancy, it was not the anti-vax predictors as you want to believe.

Waiting too. Have an appointment at the end of the month, but do not know yet. Have been perfectly fine without bothering of wearing constantly a mask. Just take normal precaution and do not go to busy places anyway, covid or not.

Israel is now imposing the booster shot to get the vaccine pass. I am afraid other countries will follow and impose their agenda without serious scientific base.
