1200 cases nationally per day. That’s close enough to 10,000 cases per week. To quote a famous ex-PM “it’s under control” NOT!

Once again, if you don't test, hospitalizations and deaths can be assigned to another cause (pneumonia, flu, ...)

Mainichi reported in oct last year that as of july 2020 there were about 18,000 less total deaths for that year compared to about same time in 2019.

Biggest drops in deaths were in respiratory illnesses particularly pneumonia and flu at about 5,800 and 2,200 respectively

@ i@n posts facts not opinion and people down vote because it doesn't fit their conspiracies. Sums up the mentality of many posters

This virus is different from the virus so far . The variant type one very very powerful threat , once come to an settlement , get back shortly .

Their repetition could be done many many times endlessly .

The number of cases deteriorated as I say . Anywhere must be generated much cluster infections. You mean more information check out the Japanese local media well .

What about the real situation not only the number ?

Only here can’t pick up all everything crystal clear .

Cases and deaths have come down worldwide since January ( although there has been an uptick in cases recently ).

However, those who are in the slightest bit interested in detail rather than narrative can see that some countries are seeing increases. Anyone remotely interested in thinking clearly should be looking at this on a country-by-country basis. The reason the cases have come down worldwide is largely due to decreases in a few hard-hit countries with large populations.

Think and read and before posting. It helps.

Maybe the numbers are really that low or massively olympia-adjusted, but that’s not the point. The trend in general corresponds with the development elsewhere, so that part is surely an information we all can probably rely on, regardless of our opinions about the absolute numbers are differing.

Yes, the conspiracy theorists continue to ignore the fact that hospitalization rates, deaths

There's no conspiracy theory saying the infections number is not realistic but Japan doesn't record much serious cases thanks to food diet that doesn't create comorbidities or thanks to a performing medical system.

Yes, the conspiracy theorists continue to ignore the fact that hospitalization rates, deaths and most important, thesame trend happening worldwide. But yes, it's more obvious that the numbers must be fudged. Smgdfh2x

@Zoroto.

That shows how special we all are here. If you do not like being healthy, there are a lot of other countries you can move to and get sick and become a stat.

Super numbers

"Koike-chan said Tokyo needs to be on state of emergency for two more weeks!"

"Okay, we'll just make the cases higher so that it would be better for our dear leader!"

Every time.

That's one-thousand four-hundred ninety-one tests in a city of a population of 15 million. That is insane.

No, thats the number of people that merited a test on Sunday. Basically, those who said their breathing was causing them distress. Tomorrow's number will be higher. High enough to lengthen the S.O.E? Well, wait and see....

Almost as if they don't want to find an answer they don't like, eh?

Increasing numbers of positive COVID 19 tests, despite 1.491 tests only.

As always, those are the results from Sunday.

More to come again?
