The question has to be: What is Japan doing to keep its infection numbers so low compared proportionately to

its' Asian neighbors??

Have never seen an answer to this question beyond Japanese "mindo".

Like the majority of responsible adults, I got my booster shot today . The highly irresponsible minority are still sitting around waiting for herd immunity which doesn’t exist. And the real time and future healthcare risks associated with infections, just aren’t worth it and a dangerous way of thinking. Being infected does not protect you any better than getting vaccinated s no being vaccinated dramatically lowers your chance of having a severe case . I personally believe that regardless of parental status, adults primary job and goal in life is to protect children. The easiest way to protect children from Covid is to protect yourself and act like responsible adults.

Good to see the sever cases sharply down by the day as we head out of this wave. As Omicron is far more contagious it will hang around a bit until everyone catches it, including the vaccinated. The booster jabs were designed for the previous variants and don’t work well preventing infection or transmission, also, any immunity wanes very fast.

If you are in the minority of non obese and elderly who are still afraid of this variant despite its mildness, ensure you take all precautions: daily exercise, do not become obese, reduce intake of processed foods and eat fresh Whole Foods daily, also take a vitamin D supplement especially if you are darker skinned.

up 689 from last Monday

It was also up yesterday from last week.

It hasn't been down big time yet, and it is already going up again...

@kaimycahi good. Hopefully people have moved on to other things.

reduce intake of processed foods and eat fresh Whole Foods daily

Are these new Dr. Ffs criteria? Are Whole Foods different to whole foods? Why aren't processed foods Processed Foods? Did you go out to some dreary shotengai today?

A high number for the weekend. Okinawa proportionately still sets the standard--this is far from over yet and a new surge is coming soon.

It's really not that difficult to do.

I've had omicron. It was pretty mild. I know nobody in my immediate circle who had been killed let alone hospitalized by the disease. Yet I know several people who have suffered financially and mentally from the effect of lockdowns, restrictions, and other "government-please-do-something-to-protect-people-from-themselves" mandates.

Maybe a count of those people should be included in this article everyday and then you can quantify how important socializing really is.

I've had omicron. It was pretty mild.

I haven't, so my strategy is working for me. And Omicron and the other variants affect people differently. I know people who had omicron and were affected pretty roughly for two weeks. And who knows about the long-term effects.

Again, people who take the precautions are more prone to not catch this illness. I want to be in that group.

I know nobody in my immediate circle who had been killed let alone hospitalized by the disease. Yet I know several people who have suffered financially and mentally from the effect of lockdowns, restrictions, and other "government-please-do-something-to-protect-people-from-themselves" mandates.*

I know people who were hit hard with Delta. And I have relatives and friends who have died from Covid.

If people want to risk illness, death, long-term health effects so that they can work, that is their choice of course.

Maybe a count of those people should be included in this article everyday and then you can quantify how important socializing really is.

Working remotely versus drinking in a bar after hours--not a difficult choice.

It's great to see the masks coming off, six people in my carriage today. The subservience is waning.
