What you mean? Japan government has many plans. They say in news all time for example; quasi emergencies and 3 C from Ms Koike and so on etc. Next plan is to change Corona to flu level. Don't you know?

I don't know, It is forbidden to repeat the facts in the headline in this article, and then to make a political comment.

One time I had lockdown in Ireland and Yuri and friend got drunk in public house all night Next day when lockdown over we go home to reality and feeled very bad. my lesson is lockdown is good during lock down but party can't last for ever and reality will bite hard soon after lock down. I saw take bill by horns and go with the flow. I hope my lesson helps.

Great lesson.

Not sure how long it will last though.

I'll give it less than 6 minutes. Set your clock Colonel..

24,000 grand. Seems to be going up again.

(Politically correct comment).

-10 ( +5 / -15 )

Why so many cases in a country where almost all wear a mask so diligently?

7 ( +19 / -12 )

Don’t worry all. New system of counting case numbers to be introduced soon and numbers will go down drastically. All those purveyors of doom will have to find some other data to back up their claims

-2 ( +9 / -11 )

23,000+ times 365 equals 8,395,000+. Tokyo's population 13.5 million+. Who are these newly infected people? Is the vaccine working? What number is sufficient to please the government?

These are horrific numbers for a Saturday…. The elusive peak is nowhere in sight…. The entire healthcare system has collapsed….

Hospitalizations 1,855,966

Change from previous day +12,536

All these cases and schools are closed…. There is no possible way to put a positive spin on just how dire the situation truly is… Even Kishida has it now … the way the jgov just dropped everything and said go for it is now catching up…. The past 30 days have been the deadliest 30 consecutive days . And NO.!. It’s not acceptable that each death was gonna eventually happen anyway… another 226 died a premature death FROM Covid …. Regardless of any preexisting conditions or age , they are directly died sooner than they should have .!.

-8 ( +9 / -17 )

So the death rate is .0018 of japan's population.

These numbers don't correlate with the actual situation on the ground. I'm just back from a trip to Hokkaido. The fireworks, the matsuris, the obon holiday-goers are all back and the hotels are full and people are having fun. One of the matsuris I went to even had a band competition where the musicians weren't wearing masks - shock horror - as they can't really wear them while playing their instruments.

People have moved on from this and rightly so.

Don't understand how anyone could be so fixated on whatever cases number we have today in 2022.

It might be a record case number but also it would indicate record full recoveries given that so many have already gotten the disease or been vaccinated.

Life goes on.
