On what basis do you think Covid19 will indefinitely continue in waves that will continue to cause severe symptoms/death in the same percentage of people as it does now? Every pandemic in human history has 'resolved' itself in a few years and become endemic, even much deadlier viruses/bacteria... why is this one going to suddenly become far more severe in the near future and cause a complete lockdown?

because it is quite possible that this particular virus was created by humans designed to morph into version after version until the entire world is infected.

So it’s the fault of the 6 millions dead and still daily dying ones that they only didn’t wait long enough while leaving suffocating at the ECMOs patiently instead of waiting until it becomes harmless and endemic? Insane, your logic when it comes to pandemics like this one.

RIP the 215 who didn't have to die.

Well, I thought it actually might hit 50,000 by today. There is not going to be another SOE or any lockdowns Japan/Tokyo cannot afford that (again). From my vantage point looking down at the Sumida River and Tokyo Bay there are no brightly lit dinner cruises.

Correction, I just looked out the window and there are three heading out into Tokyo Bay, oh well. Apparently the food on the cruise boats must be really really good! Good enough to risk getting whatever flavor of the virus is floating on the boat with you! Yummy!

Age shift in infections lately. Older people are getting more infected, therefore the number of deaths has increased.

In fact Japan is more likely to classify Covid as non notifiable disease regardless of the numbers from next month.

Sorry, you are so wrong on this, like so many things.

“The number of infected people hospitalized with severe symptoms in Tokyo is 38, down one from Thursday, health officials said. The nationwide figure is 556, up 40 from Thursday.”

”The number of coronavirus-related deaths was 215.”

Just doing basic math of those with “severe symptoms” and those who passed away …. 516-215=301+40 =345….

Seems 171 people who were either not hospitalized just dropped dead … or the dim reality of the situation is as bad as it could be … the entire healthcare system has collapsed…. Hence the new urging to not go to the hospitals even if you’re sure you have Covid …. This is not some flu …. Not a cold…. Not mild …. I’d say the vast majority of these deaths were completely avoidable….

The virus doesn't care about how it is classified. It will just keep infecting and mutating.
