Extremely alarming and very dangerous to our health! We need to reconsider having SOE or quasi-SOE.

'Oh no! The figures have improved, I hope a new far deadlier and infectious strain emerges... I want to see at least several 0s added to those numbers in the next few weeks.'

While there is a bias towards implementing of restrictions and anti-Japanese government sentiment in this comments section, I do think most people here appreciate fresh perspectives, well argued points, and data rather than "These numbers are good" or "These numbers are bad" comments.

I'm not criticizing your viewpoint as I (and most international democracies) also think the situation is much better today than it was before - just saying.

@Stonesode, plenty of people here would love to see Japan follow in the steps of China and North Korea and enact sakoku forever, it’s very disturbing.

The number of infected people hospitalized with severe symptoms in Tokyo is six, down two from Wednesday, health officials said. The nationwide figure is 159, down four from Wednesday.

Great to hear, I wonder if Tokyo will reach 0 soon?
