With week-on-week cases continuing to decline and relaxed mask guidance being discussed, hopefully the summer of 2022 is the beginning of the end of the pandemic as we know it.

Nothing excellent in these numbers during a holiday when testing is dramatically reduced. Stay smart people .

Wonder what happened to all the fear mongers who said we were all going to die and the medical system would collapse?

Wonder what happened to all the fear mongers who said we were all going to die…

Yes, we all die one day.

The healthcare system was and has been on the brink of total collapse….

Read the last paragraph…. 555 people died…. at HOME from Jan-Mar. from Covid. Doesn’t say it or how many died in the hotels . These people should’ve been hospitalized but couldn’t because of over crowded hospitals.

3357 positives out of 4000 tests taken?

3357 positives out of 4000 tests taken?

No.

Just click the link "new corona virus cases" within the article. It will display details.

One such detail is number of tests conducted.

Look for the section "【参考】検査件数" (Test Counts)

Then look for the first section: "行政検査数" (Test Counts at Public Health Centers), which shows last 3 days total of 15,810 tests (or daily average of 5,270). These tests are done at discretion of the doctors or centers because of symptoms or close contacts with virus carriers.

Now look for the second section: "都の独自検査件数" (Special Tests By Tokyo), which shows last 7 days total of 147,647 tests (or daily average of 21,092). These tests are done not because of symptoms or close contacts but as precautions at locations where serious consequence can result if cluster occurs. These include nursing homes, nursery and elementary schools, hospitals, entertainment districts.

These tests do not include people who need testing to get certificate for traveling or simply who are worrying about their own infections and other reasons. For that, you need to check the third section: "PCR等検査無料化事業検査件数" (Free PCR and Other Tests). Tokyo offers free testing for these special needs.

Up again but people are already talking about no masks.

No mask good!

No closed borders good!

Low numbers good!

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

With week-on-week cases continuing to decline and relaxed mask guidance being dis

cussed, hopefully the summer of 2022 is the beginning of the end of the pandemic as we know it.

Once again, (banging head against the wall) idiocy and ignorance reigns. Japan isnt "just" Tokyo!

Huge rise in numbers in Okinawa.

And percentage of tested who were positive is still high.

Mask up, stay home, and order and drink in.

Long way from this being over.

With the borders essentially closed, this is prime time for a lockdown.
