I guess the Golden Week holiday may have influenced this number, but it is good to see it continue to fall.

It really is time to move on from COVID-19.

-1 ( +12 / -13 )

Only the hospitalizations are fundamental. With these numbers it opens in June.

-6 ( +8 / -14 )

Not alarming at all...

-8 ( +6 / -14 )

Up again from yesterday. This is still getting worse.

-3 ( +8 / -11 )

Why aren't the number of tests taken reported? Isn't it important?

3 ( +7 / -4 )

The number of cases is not that relevant. Hospitalizations with serious conditions and deaths are what is important. Simply having it may not cause harm, but because the deaths and seriously infected are really slowing dowmn, it's not something the media can play up.

4 ( +6 / -2 )

Best to worry if your age is 80 years plus, otherwise, not a problem.

Cases are receding in Japan but still no tourists.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

High numbers still in Okinawa. This is far from over.

No tourists coming here until after the simmer elections.

Mask up and stay in all Golden Week, to prevent a new wave.

-5 ( +0 / -5 )

“I guess the Golden Week holiday may have influenced this number, but it is good to see it continue to fall.

Yes, it’s inconvenient isn’t it; all this mask wearing and keeping the windows open. Let’s just move on. I think we’d all love to just move on, but pretending that people’s lives are t being destroyed by Long Covid every day misses the bigger picture.
