It's very 不便 during Golden Week

I wonder how many people are hospitalized…. In hotels …. Or worse … at home “recovering” where 555 people died Jan-Mar because as I oft repeated, the healthcare system couldn’t keep up with the deadliest variant of Covid in Japan to date and people who should have been admitted to hospitals were instead sent home …. As there weren’t any beds available…. If the minority of anti any and everything as related to Covid would just start to care ….

Keep washing your hands, wear a mask, social distance and stay home!

Take care everyone this Golden Week.

Why are there still doomers constantly scared of this? Can we not do like every other country is doing and learn to live with this. How long must we go on with this constant talk of imminent healthcare collapse and people dropping dead in the streets. Seems like people just get off on this fear.

It's not going anywhere. We can't just sit in our houses forever.

Yes take precautions and if you're someone that may be more susceptible or if you live with someone that could be more susceptible then take extra precautions. But don't expect everyone to put their lives on hold for a disease that has a 0.4% death rate in Japan (from Worldometers covid numbers)

“We can't just sit in our houses forever.” Errr… no one is sitting in their house, you might be thinking of Shanghai.

I totally agree with you. There are so many articles of needless deaths and struggling ambulances to find hospitals for Covid patients especially in Chiba.

Just pure misinformation when it comes to hospitals. Te guy doesn’t even live in Tokyo so how would he know? Hotels? What is he talking about? The hotels here have all resumed normal business

Woohoo down down down!

So looking at the numbers above in various prefectures. Very small. Sorry, those numbers won’t cause the healthcare system to collapse anywhere. You are living in a fantasy world
