So reassuring that the increase in people hospitalized with severe symptoms in Tokyo was 0% today. Yesterday’s 50% increase was very alarming!

-11 ( +3 / -14 )

This is quite alarming for a Saturday figure. Be cautious everyone and stay home as much as you can!

‘Stay home as much as you can”

I assume you are joking as that would make zero sense

Indeed. But don't forget the 330,000 hospitalized in Japan according to that "reliable" source of information that posts that figure on here every day - that's more than the people hospitalized in the UK and US combined at the very peaks of the pandemic! Stay safe everyone!

Actually no, these numbers are just the results of Friday tests. The one's to watch are Monday, as Sunday many test centers are closed.

We have now gone over 200,000 here, and over 40,000 in the first three weeks of May alone. Things are not "settling" down.

But no one really gives a crap it seems. HS and JHS school trips here have increased, tourists from mainland are jamming hotels, the airport is busier now than it has been for over 2 years, people are getting sick and dying too.

But hell, it's just a "fever" right?

I just saw a pretty packed Hawaii themed concert in Ebisu last night. In spite of gathering and traveling numbers are staying low.

Another dramatic increase in new hospitalizations….

Hospitalizations 336,080

Change from previous day +4,579

These numbers cannot be sustained. The only way to get these numbers to a manageable number is to dramatically reduce the number of new cases…. But that’s also not happening…. The minority of anti mitigation, anti vax, anti everything clan just won’t change. Quick to whine about opening up and moving on when the reality is that we’ve never been closed…. Not sure what they want to “move on” from . Keep safe and responsible people…. Peace out .

Steven,

Mybdear chap, those are total case numbers to which you are referring. Hospitalisations are below 10,000 and have never been above 30,000 during the entire pandemic.

Japan is running as usual, except for tourists and most people are enjoying their lives.

I wish the media would stop telling us the exact case-count number every day, given that the vast, vast, vast majority of them are mild.

Just tell us the number of serious cases and number of deaths.

I understand that would greatly lower the "scare factor" and thus lower viewer ratings and Internet clicks -- but here's hoping that honest journalism will take priority over profit-making fear-mongering.

There were a grand total of 31 official COVID deaths -- 31 deaths connected to a virus that at least a few hundred thousand people currently have.

And it's almost a certainty that they were all at least in their 70s, with most probably being in their 80s or 90s. Which in turn fully makes me wonder if it was the COVID they really died from.

And all of this is why we're continuing to mask up, have chemicals injected into our bodies, and just be overall paranoid fear-paralyzed sheep.

I honestly don't get it.

False Flag my old bean, I hope you get to bottom of it all. We need a Sherlock Holmes like you to keep us all on the right path.

Besides our resident sleuth, for what it's worth, Elvis and Priscilla saw some free PCR testing today and yesterday in and around Tokyo. Lots of bored looking staff dealing with the occasional sheepish 20 something. Also, plenty of pictures of lemons and umeboshi to raise your heckles. Spitting in test tubes saves lives!! Stay safe!

The irresponsibility of the Japanese has been shocking.

Don't' fret Tommy. No different to Gaikoku! You'll survive (if you got your jabs).
