It does look like the new cases in the seventh wave may be peaking, but they'll probably get bumped up again as a result of O-Bon socialising and travel. That might not be the case in Tokyo, which looked virtually empty in normally busy areas yesterday. But who knows, as the high rates around the country might mean people importing infection back into Tokyo.

On the other hand, deaths look like heading for the highest daily rates yet seen in the entire pandemic. They are nearly as high as the sixth wave, which in turn caused way more deaths than the fifth.

Japan on Sunday reported 178,356 new coronavirus cases.

One question, is why are the numbers so high in Japan? The government has plenty of time to come up with a plan to prevent this disaster.

The effect on the economy will be felt for years to come as those with long-covid cannot contribute to society.

Lockdown time.
