I always find it odd JT doesn’t give the 50 and above number. I have to do the math each time - 747 - to save it others.

As I always suggest, the deaths and serious cases by age and other illness would be a better number to track. No of infections is fairly meaningless.

15 ( +15 / -0 )

Deaths in age ranges are never published on JT which makes the articles a senseless waste of time…

12 ( +15 / -3 )

Tracking nicely. If the country isn't open to world by summer the LDP decision-makers need their heads examined.

2 ( +9 / -7 )

New cases are decreasing, what is a good news. However, we can't low our guard.

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

Time to end all border restrictions for residents.

5 ( +8 / -3 )

With this ridiculous data we cannot extrapolate to know if the new cases are increasing or not.

Omicron ( or the latest variant) is not fatal in the majority of cases AND deaths occur in those of 80 years or above.

Much ado about nothing...

Omicron is the deadliest variant of Covid in Japan to date. The teenager with zero health issues from Saitama who DIED from Covid on 2/9 wasn’t 80….. or even 20….. then there’s the 1 kid from Kanagawa and 1 from Kyoto both below 10 who both died from Covid in the last 10 days . Omicron doesn’t discriminate and being 90 or any age for that matter doesn’t make it more excusable…..

Any death is very much ado about everything.

Time to enjoy the lovely Spring weather and become refreshed. This Covid Lark is almost behind us and it’s time for PMA (Positive mental attitude). It’s our moral duty to support our families and communities and not spread fear that harms many, especially the children

There hasn’t been any border restrictions for residents since 2020.

actually I don’t think it does. In reality

you don’t know how Covid will impact you as an individual until you actually catch it. It impacts everyone differently and it’s difficult to predict who will have long term complications and who won’t. Many athletes are struggling with long Covid. Even after the pandemic calms down japan will still have many long Covid patients to treat.

Wen 1000?

Tell us how many of the hospitalised and new cases are fully vaxxed! I bet it is a very large percentage of them.

Enough with the lunacy! Open up and move on!

Why? So that you can either a. Ignore information that doesn't confirm your beliefs or b. say I told you so. And rattle on about it on the internet as if you are keeper of all that is true.

It is a widely accepted fact that the seriously ill are mostly unvaccinated. If you are unwilling to accept that now, then there is nothing more for you to say.
