The Tokyo metropolitan government on Wednesday reported 25,444

The number of infected people hospitalized with severe symptoms in Tokyo is 36

So with something like 90,000 active COVID cases in Tokyo right now, a grand total of 36 -- or 0.04% -- are in hospital with severe symptoms.

I'm less worried about COVID than I am about getting mauled to death by a blind three-legged cheetah wearing a baseball cap.

And the math above supports me.

I met a Japanese woman today who takes a PCR test everyday! She told me she just has to book the day before on a smartphone app at one of the test centers located in multiples places in Tokyo. This is financed by the city of Tokyo.

She is also vaccinated 3 times.

What a vaste of public money.

Tokyo reports 25,444 coronavirus cases

BIG numbers again!

And Okinawa rates increasing. Tokyo is not out of it yet.

This government has no plan, and gave up at ever having one, so infection rates are some of the highest in the world.

And there is talk of letting tourists in?

This country needs a lockdown.

According to World of Meters, in the last week, 1906 people have died in Japan from corona (+23% from the prior week).

How many people were killed in the last week by your blind three-legged cheetahs wearing a baseball cap?

Yeah, thought so.

Goes to show how well the vaccines are working.

Painkiller,

And Okinawa rates increasing. Tokyo is not out of it yet.

Okinawa is DOWN 74 from yesterday and DOWN 1108 from last Wednesday.

So if by “increasing” you mean DOWN, then you are correct.

…who takes a PCR test everyday…/ financed by the city of Tokyo

Almost everything which is publicly financed, could be complained about by all people who are not interested or using it. People without a car finance highways, people never sick finance the health system, people not interested in higher culture finance opera houses or other cultural performers, people not interested in any sports finance stadiums and most international competitions, people not interested in space exploration finance the space agencies and rockets into the galaxy and so on and on, the list is endless of what we all pay for, but never can, will or want to use. And here in this case, that woman just takes the given possibility of a daily free PCR test. There’s not such a big problem with it, compared to many other examples of which I named a very few.

Somebody taking a daily PCR test has mental problems.

Looking forward to the pending reclassification of this to Endemic. Maybe next week…

Looking forward to the pending reclassification of this to Endemic. Maybe next week…

Why? What difference is it going to make to your life? It won't make people wear masks less, if that's what you think.

While we are at it, do you know another endemic disease that kills 300 every day?

Give up.

Let people live their lives. My friend has now extreme depression from the 2 years of nothing but misery.

Please go to a country that is still doing Lockdowns in 2022 (almost 2023)

If you must know, personally I don’t care as I am not fearful of Covid in the slightest. The reclassification plays a factor in how the medical system deals with this and how the statistics are reported. Rather than a small amount of hospitals handling patients all of them can including small doctors offices. The system can focus on the most vulnerable and encourage others to live their life. masks are optional

Masks still slipping.

Shockingly high case numbers. Though very small severe cases. Why is this still news and why are masks still worn given these realities?

Again:

Widespread masking isn't doing anything to stop spread. Clearly.

Severe cases are a miniscule percentage of total case numbers (and will predominantly be among the very elderly and immunocompromised).

It's nigh time to stop reporting this and move on like the rest of the civilsed world.

How did you come to that conclusion?
