6,950 is pretty low, can it get any lower?

4 ( +10 / -6 )

Not many people feeling sick?

Or not reporting the actual numbers?

That is the question.

So the GoTo spikes never happened. Live and learn. Full speed ahead Japan. Once again, no thanks to leadership and thanks to the diligence of the populace you seem to have dodged da bullet innit. Bring on the Olympics. Who doesn’t want to watch the best athletes in the world on show now?

One year and counting and many people still clueless about testing.

If there are less people who are sick there will be less who will be tested.

To think that govt sets number of tests daily and stops testing beyond that even if there more that need to be tested is plainly stupid.

Were you hibernating ? Or are you sarcastic ?

There were 2359 recorded deaths 3 months ago (2020/12/06) now there are 8238 recorded deaths (2021/03/06). On September 3th, they accounted to 1369. The rise hastened in November.

Did you bother looking at the curb ?

To get tested you have to have a fever for 3 days in a row and I do not know what else. There could be so many a systematic people walking around and unknowingly spreading it. The death rate has gone from a thousand last June to nearly 9 thousand and how many more been cremated that had it and not counted.
