Remaining “Cautiously Optimistic”. Continued personal safety & responsibility while thinking of our individual choices and how they affect others seems prudent.

Doctors cannot explain about the sudden drop of the pandemic contractors.

Will be fun when it goes in negative territory so we can start to erase the higher numbers before to bring down total averages.

That is the brilliance between AI and using real people to look at these things as real people have bad bloody days and irrational on cognitive thinking.

I replaced all of mine before selling and moving on.

Amazing to think active cases are a tenth of what they were not so long ago.

Well done Japan for obliterating the virus.

Doctors cannot explain about the sudden drop of the pandemic contractors.

During Juli and August and September too millions of people were vaccinated in Japan, I think this is a major reason for the strong declining number of patients.

Yes, seems reasonable @Reckless 7:39pm, especially IF after 20 months straight use. - Haven’t we seen some, apparently ‘recirculating’ their same, stained & dirty masks inside-out, almost weekly? (Kind of like dorm room underwear until monthly ‘laundry day’ at mom’s house?)

Hopefully this will be the end of this Covid Lark and SOE’s in Japan. Business as normal without draconian lockdowns is a job well done.
