Statistically ZERO cases in a population as massive as Tokyo. Things are going well. Go To Travel will start up giving a big boost to the tourism economy which will tide them over until they let foreign tourists in sometime next year. Slow and steady improvements.

Yes, correctly stated.

Thanks to the combination of high vaccination rate, herd immunity and a non-obese population. Now we just need Japan to remove the pointless quarantine requirements upon entry.

Soon less chances to catch corona than being stabbed in a train in Tokyo

I hope they don't let them in for at least a decade.

Sad to still see these meaningless figures about "cases", which really only means people with symptoms who get tested.

Fact is the virus is out there, most of has have been exposed to it and all of us will be exposed to it, period.

Stay healthy, and get either vaccinated or when necessary get the antiviral drugs, of which there are several now.

The virus is now endemic and will not go away.
