Looks like coronavirus holds up well in blazing 37 degree heat.

At least 2/3 of them were double vaccinated (https://stopcovid19.metro.tokyo.lg.jp/)...

What did we pay all that money for again?

@Wobot - To keep people out of hospital as we keep telling you. I'm happy I contributed.

Cases continue to skyrocket. And Japan underreports.

Okinawa numbers are way up still.

Another wave is around the corner so we will see higher numbers in a few weeks. Not to mention that BA.5

will be here soon.

Feel free to waltz around your neighborhood, but wear a mask when you are in close proximity to non-household members. Travel where you like but mask up. Eat izakaya food, but take it home.

I saw several foreigners wearing masks at a major train station the other day, so probably most are complying, regardless of what they write otherwise.

Best advice--stay in, stay masked.

Stay tuned.

You're talking about drama and stress, not me.

Thanks for staying masked mate!

I wore the mask for over 2 years and caught corona regardless. Now it’s time to drop them outside, especially in this heat.

Did not catch the Covid, and wear only the mask in my company, where I do not have much choice

If you don't . . . , at least remember to social distance, avoid crowds, change air filters for a/c on a regular basis using (some filters claim they can trap virus carriers), sanitize, especially air with disinfectant 99.9% spray . . . .

They should really consider locking the borders down again and contemplate an internal lockdown. Hopefully the newest booster arrives soon. I forgot which one we are on. Oh, and double mask . Remover, it’s not about you, it’s about your neighbor. Stay home if you can. You don’t need food, That’s what Uber is for.

It's going up because anti-maskers are now free to cough anywhere they want.
