According to the link in this article posted by the Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Social Welfare and Public Health (東京福祉保健局) there are now just 1096 people in hospital in Tokyo due to covid, including the 3 serious cases. A very low number and slowly declining, which is great to see.

That's a tantalising post. What could Wobbot mean? (Does it mean what I think it means? Maybe he doesn't wear a mask on the train? Or he's not vaccinated? Or BOTH!!!!)

You must be doing something right. Don't you feel the urge to tell everyone?

According to the jgov …. The actual number of people hospitalized is:

Hospitalizations 293,407

Change from previous day -11,128

That’s a huge net drop!!! Finally some good news. Now if we could only get the minority to join the vast majority and get vaccinated… or boosted …. No more made up excuses people…. Your best chance at survival or reducing your chances of getting a severe case are with vaccines!!!!. So get your vaccine today …. It only hurts for a day or 2. In the meantime, mask up when necessary, wash your hands frequently, follow the 3 “Cs”. Do you individual part to help mitigate the spread, keeping the the actual number of hospitalizations manageable, reduce your chances of getting seriously ill…. Care about others… not just yourself…. Follow sound science…. Follow the rules…. Help get that tourism going you so desperately need…. Peace out and keep safe …

I’ll pass. And I won’t offer any excuses.

I simply decided I don’t want it.

I will continue doing what I’ve been doing my whole life… living a healthy lifestyle. Eating healthy and exercising regularly. In fact, that is my advice to everyone.

It serves me very well.

@Kenchi, that’s right.

There is not much to worry about if you take care of your health and be considerate of others, rather than being overweight and unmasked in close proximity to young children like this pot bellied man. He’s probably most at risk from complications.

Most people have made very important efforts to stop the spreading, if anything this means some people are riding the efforts of everybody else to be kept safe from covid.

Will people stop wearing their mask one day? Today 30 degrees and people still wearing them while walking alone in deserted street. The government has probably to fine them for wearing their mask if they want them to stop doing so!

And everyone else around as well, right?

And everyone else around as well, right?

everyone’s has to do what they think is right to serve them well. I don’t make other peoples decisions for them, nor do I care to.

sorry but I don’t buy into that whole “social responsibility” thing. That’s just a pathetically desperate thing to say to try and guilt or bully somebody into changing their mind or complying.

in the future, there may be a time and a place for such measures but it’s certainly not with COVID. Not by a long shot.

if you wanna get vaccinated, giddy up. If you don’t, that’s cool too.

Not quite sure what the very pretty picture at the top of the article is meant to highlight, demonstrate or visually explain in the body of the text?

The only effective way out of the pandemic and any restrictions consequent upon it, is via a sufficiently high level of vaccination. Those wantonly refusing it without valid medical reason are at best delaying the process and thus inflicting harm economically and socially on the rest of the population or just self centred freeloaders.

Well this freeloader hasn’t even had the flu in more than a decade. The only time I go to the hospital is to get my yearly physical. But of course, I still pay my medical Insurance on time every month. I should calculate how much I’ve paid into medical insurance over the years…

come to think of it, I do feel similarly though, as far as freeloading goes, when I think about smokers or those who are obese. The deaths and hospitalizations of those two far surpass Covid problems. and those two problems would be far easier to eradicate than a virus.

“Will people stop wearing their mask one day?”

No. Masks are never coming off in Japan. Ever.

Good to see a man scolding some teens for not wearing masks at a beach in Hyogo today. Keep safe everyone and stay home!

Yaaaay! :)
