Brilliant Job Tokyo

I hope this keeps up. I have to take a trip to Tokyo mid-November, and I desperately need it not to be cancelled.

Japan has been the best place to live in during the pandemic. No mandates or lockdowns and the residents have kept the economy rolling as best as possible while still being cautious.

Has it? In what way, may I ask?

Some still praising Japan to the utmost (I wonder why!!).

No report of PCR tests conducted.

No report of those who diseased (maybe there aren't any).

Despite all this, if the numbers continue to fall like this most of us can enjoy a long desired winter vacation.

Well done Japan, keep it up. Numbers would be interesting after the elections, let's wait and see.

Wearing mask outside even nobody is around you...

Wearing mask in the car even you are alone in the car...

That is the key to success!

Seems the virus is fizzling out. Perhaps Herd Immunity has been achieved as a combination of Natural Immunity and Vaxxed Immunity.

No report of PCR tests conducted.

That figure of 26 is based on the results of 5627 cases, or a positivity rate of 0.46%. Too all the people complaining about too few tests: to what percent do you want to test down to 0.1? 0.01? The WHO says that 3-12% positivity rate is an indication of sufficient testing.

The testing centers and hospitals must be fighting among themselves now for the right to be able to do the few tests allowed by the govt.

Or maybe just janken

From 50% positive rate in August to 0.46% today. Yep, thats 100% beliveable.

Good low numbers as expected with herd immunity from infections and vaccinations. We see from the deaths that the Covid variants that have hit Japan have been far less fatal to non seniors and non obese than the Western media claims.

we are indeed very lucky to have been in Japan during the last 18 months. Life has continued almost as normal for those of us that did not believe the overhype of the dangers. It’s time to live with Covid and hopefully the world can now stop believing all the fear mongers going by ‘experts’ and the media.

Suddenly figures going down???.

Thanks for reminding us.

I wear a double mask over all orifices during sleep time because one never knows what can be spread.

It looks like there is a strong correlation between populations with high obesity rates and countries having a bad time with COVID. The less healthy the herd, the more disease.

Well the Olympics infection bubble has completely flattened. Just think of the misery that could have been avoided had the Olympics been cancelled.

I've gotten bored of the deletions on this site,so have decided to keep my comments from now on to the bare minimum.But had to give praise to Japan's vaccination rate which has surpassed plenty of countries which started much earlier.Suga and Kono were obviously the architects,but in the new govt tossed aside as surplus to requirements,so to speak.

@ShinkanseCaboose

If you're concerned about spreading something therefore you must think your infected?

A double diaper ?

Sleep well

How do you define "diseased"? With the virus becoming endemic and weaker (as they always do), most of us have been exposed to it, and all of us will be. It is impossible to avoid exposure to an endemic virus. However, for the vast majority of people, there will be mild or no symptoms from light exposure. It is time to end this Covid hysteria.

The PCR tests, by the way, are designed to detect minuscule virus presence, they are not designed for population testing. If you set the cycle threshhold high enough, you can find pineapples, goats, and jackfruit Covid positive, see here: https://rumble.com/vatq57-the-president-of-tanzania-denounces-the-covid-scam.html
