Covid-19 hasn't been that big a deal for a while. Mostly I just check this comments section out every now and again for the craic of it now.

Becoming more optimistic that there won't be any game changing variants on the horizon for a while either and if there are, we're just better equipped to deal with them now.

Wow …. Nearly a 90% increase in 1 day …. That’s just in Tokyo…. Not good …. And until the actual number of those hospitalized with Covid gets much much more and more manageable…. People who have given up or just don’t care ( move on) need to join the vast majority of people here and do their individual part. The vast majority have made tremendous sacrifices so even the minority could be safer …. It’s time for everyone to come together…. These numbers are not sustainable or acceptable as some preach about …

Hospitalizations 272,905

Change from previous day -10,334

A nice net drop but not a good stat .

These numbers are not sustainable

Wow, 272,905 people hospitalized, that's a crazy number..

Luckily we're at roughly 20% covid bed capacity* in most prefectures so no strain on the system.

Just imagine the amount of vacant covid beds available... Just under 1,500,000 covid beds.

And that's just covid beds! What a robust health system we have in Japan - ready for anything.
