Slight increase in overall hospitalizations countrywide…

Hospitalizations 331,501

Change from previous day +128

This 50% increase in cases of those with severe symptoms in Tokyo is quite alarming….

For some reason , the number of new cases everyday just isn’t changing much . There’s no sustained downward trend yet .

Keep safe people….

-13 ( +7 / -20 )

Nothing to be alarmed about. Life must go on! If this sounds alarming to you, STAY HOME!!!

After years of announcements from the J-Gov about good numbers and trends based on ridiculous tests amount, i don't see why the opposite pattern isn't legit now.

Omicron just isn’t a problem-Japan is behind the curve but that is what makes this country so quaint…

There are not over 300000 in hospital in Japan suffering with Covid. The government figures show there is less than 10000. The figure you gave is current cases that ‘require treatment’ which in the vast majority means staying at home.

I really wish the rest of the world would learn from Japan.

These factual and complete numbers are supplied directly by the jgov.

Since the very beginning of the pandemic, this has always been the question …. “Where are all these people with Covid?” The jgov always published the numbers of people hospitalized with “severe symptoms.” But never the numbers of all hospitalizations. That changed with Omicron …. The deadliest variant of Covid in Japan to date . And when otherwise healthy people including but not limited to children started dying in hotels or worse…. Home … To claim these accurate numbers are false is what’s patently false. I agree these 300k+ that are listed as “hospitalized” are not all in a hospital in the common sense of the word . There aren’t enough hospital beds in Japan to admit 300k+ ….. so unfortunately. People are being treated in hotels by healthcare professionals …. So by medical definition…. The term “hospitalized” is correct . That should alarm everyone… unfortunately…. It doesn’t … some people just don’t care about others . Some have even posted some link to a junk science clan whose only team member with a PHD … is not for the medical field at all. No … I’m not misunderstanding facts … and I’m also not in denial .

Time to unmask, open up and move on!
