I wonder if the typhoon has anything to do with testing numbers

The numbers started going down before the typhoon materialized.

Sounds like a lovely afternoon. In Namba at the moment and sadly my partners favourite coffee shop is closed, damn and blast!

Time for everyone to be positive, maintain a PMA, this ghastly wave is almost over and hopefully the next step is to help those living in fear needlessly. The ghastly wearing of mask fetish/cult would be the first thing I’d stop.

What’s a PMA? I just popped out for a curry, a pint, a toasted sandwich, and a parfait, and I must have missed the definition!

Only 300 people with serious symptoms out of 126 million! Astonishing.

I'm curious what the figures are for other contagious diseases.

Huge numbers still.

And the positivity rate is one of the highest in the last year.

And, there is another wave on its way.

Trending upward still.

Thank you for the words of wisdom Steve. I feel much better and safer hearing that today.

Because the Tokyo number is way down, it's now time to use the national figure to maintain a 5-digit figure in order to solicit reactions out of fear. Great job!
