Cool the 4th wave is over. What about the 5th?

Osaka also had 300 cases today. I wonder if they are still glad they lifted the SOE, as toothless as it was.

Does anyone still care about the daily figures except for the handful of people who make the same comments?

Seems you must really care.

I care about the numbers down here in Okinawa, more than I do in Tokyo. Per 100,000 people, Okinawa has been running No.2 for almost everyday this week.

It's putting a serious strain on medical facilities, as some of the reported clusters here, are in municipal hospitals, and when they have to shut down out patient services because of it, it causes literally a lot of pain in the communities that rely on those hospitals.

Tokyo doesnt even hit my personal radar on numbers, and JT has a habit of kicking Okinawa out of Japan when things are getting bad here!

The numbers man sitting by his fax machine did not do so well today in his maintenance of the Olympic is all okay picture. Tests around 3/4 of yesterday but virus cases only dropped by about 5%. He is going to have to do better than that to get the weekly average down so that the covert safe Olympic dream can go ahead

pointless counting now. Its like no body cares anymore about the pandemic. it feel as if its over anyhow. it was very over dramatic at the start now its like nothing happening.

I care about Ehime (but not only)!

More than 120 COVID cases in 3 days, 5 cases in my "neighborhood"!

But I guess people don't care as long as it doesn't happen around them!

The less most of you care about it now, the even much more you have to care about it soon.

Osaka wanted out of the SoE before Tokyo. They have this constant inferiority complex versus Tokyo so the week earlier release they saw as a proud victory. So childish everything.

Nationwide, the number f reported cases was 2,026. After Tokyo, the prefectures with the most cases were Osaka (300). This is not surprising you can walk past many individuals in OSAKA and they are not covering their faces.

*Does anyone still care about the daily figures except for the handful of people who make the same comments? *Yes, people make comments because they are just as concerned as you are concerned about reading the handful of comment. Important to know.

What is going on in Ehime, Yamagata and Miyagi? I did not expect that. When are people going to start getting the vaccine?

Enjoying a vacation in Okinawa.

Practicing social distancing ,mask wearing and hand sanitization.

The reason btw that the immunization process is so slow is that the J gov are waiting for the J vaccine to be ok'd.

All about the ¥ not your health.

I think you hit the nail on the head, Dan,

that would explain a lot. Criminal that they would do that but I suspect you are right.

Not so fast, buddy; Osaka has reclaimed its bragging rights to No. 2.

As the song goes, "The only way is up, baby"...

Why do they even keeping posting such numbers it we all known that the low numbers are fabricated due to minimal tests.

Japanese media are guilty as well to be accondiscendente and never question their government.

At least they save the “Tatemae”

These numbers really mean nothing Japan drop the ball long ago and this virus is everywhere things are going to get a lot worse before they get any better.. It's going to be a rough year.

Japan should not let anyone in. Other countries are getting variants and have high cases!

The new variant is highly contagious

New Zealand and Australia borders are closed to most.

I wonder if it is possible to watch the Olympics perform on zoom simultaneously from their own countries instead of traveling? It just has to be a slower process to be able to watch - and then tally their numbers? This way it is less contagious

Seems you must really care.

but I don’t comment on the daily numbers every day like you and others. You’re just trying to get a thumbs up from the same group of gaijin who say the same darn thing every single freaking day.

Enjoying a vacation in Okinawa.

And this is exactly WHY cases have been increasing again down here!

Keep trying! We have a smaller population so it's easier for us to be in the lead! Hell a few months ago we were Number 1...... but Suga refused to include Okinawa in the "Emergency Declaration" even after the Gov here declared one on his own!

(Stay safe! Osaka is one of my "Most favorite places to be" in Japan! And I really would love to return, as soon as all this COVID calms down!)

Suga doesnt want to spend money on Okinawa!

全国2番目

直近1週間(20~26日)の人口10万人当たりの新規感染者数は28・52人で全国2番目。最多は宮城県(38・60人)、3番目は山形県(18・50人)で、両県は独自の緊急事態宣言を出している。
