99 confirmed cases in the entire country. WOW. That is some great news.

Either bad (early) reporting or intentionally fake.

As of 5:15pm today's total for new cases is around 150, up about 50 from yesterday (and/or up 50% from yesterday).

So it is clearly not under 100.

I’m reading 99 hospitalized cases, not 99 confirmed cases. Has this article been updated from an earlier report?

The story has been updated but it never said confirmed cases.

up 12 from Monday and 12 more than last Tuesday.

It's going up again! Omggggg!!

The numbers are very low, hurray, but may have bottomed out last week. Let's hope they stay really low, thanks to 70% vaccination rates, as we go deeper into flu season.

Lots of people are walking around without masks. Outside is maybe still OK, but a tendency towards casual or no masking is going to help the infection rate climb, as will this new GoTo campaign.

We're about to find out just how many people are not vaccinated in Japan ... sigh. I give it two weeks until hospital admissions are up again -- these are a lagging indicator of viral spread. Again, I'm wishing for the extensive vaccinations to mean many slight cases of covid-19 as the weather cools. In this testing environment, these will not show up in the daily tracking data, but the virus will find its say from many such slight cases to the elderly and those with weakened immune systems.

Slowly gaining momentum and going up again…not a good sign! Just when things were normalizing. Hopefully they don’t target the restaurants again as I’ve been enjoying dinner out from 21:00-23:00hrs more comfortably with less people these nights! Seems like the Tokyo Government will put an end to it soon!

That's 99 severe cases, which stands for the number of patients in ICUs.

Waste of time reporting case numbers at this stage. Luckily the death rate will remain low thanks to high vaccination rates and low incidence of obesity.

Amazed that hospitalizations have fallen so rapidly. Is Japan using early therapeutic treatment of COVID?

Florida and Texas have used it with resounding success, as both have no restrictions and very few sick people compared to the rest of the U.S.

Open up, move on, the times are a changing!

Good news and shows that a looser approach to all the ridiculous restrictions is just as effective.
