OMG it's very alarming!!!

-19 ( +4 / -23 )

Just waiting for the usual suspects to come on here to tell us it’s spiraling out of control ad we all need to stay home. As long as Japan keeps its borders closed to China it should be fine.

As long as Japan keeps its borders closed to China it should be fine.

Only China? Aren't there any other countries that you dislike enough to want them not to come here?

Japan still struggles to get the coronavirus under control while most of the developed world has moved on.

Keep washing hands, wearing masks, social distance and stay home.

Nope. Only China. And Russia but that’s for different reasons.

The number of infected people hospitalized with severe symptoms in Tokyo is eight

There are over 8300 hospitals in the Tokyo area.

There are 8 patients with severe symptoms.

There are still people claiming the health care system is being overwhelmed by Omicron.

These people are mental casualties of the Covid media fear campaign.

“Mental casualties of the Covid media fear campaign”

Gotta China and Russia fan here. Please tell us what is it you admire about those two governments

Huge Okinawa numbers still.

And a very high positive test result rate.

A basic interpretation of the numbers tells the real story in Japan.

Another wave is on the horizon; 3-4 weeks away.

In the meantime, mask up, stay home, eat and dine in.

Have a drinking party online with your friends and co-workers. There is plenty of time to get out and about in the upcoming months.

This is a deadly disease.

Remember--the life you save might be your own.

Take the masks off and go out and enjoy your life!

It doesn't matter what the numbers are anymore.

Watch the skies. Jumbo passenger planes are constantly overhead now, flying into the major cities in huge numbers.

There are obvious tourists slow-walking while gawking at the sights and trinket shops like they just got here today. (They did.)

Japan is open once again to (rich) travelers!

(This does not include the Diamando Princessu*)

Unbelievable that cases are still rising in Japan?

With all the mask wearing that goes on, what is happening?

Most of the pandemic acting in the UK is finished and cases….are down.
