Need to stop being so stressed mate. This variant is weak, most vulnerable have been vaccinated or infected already and health authorities know better how to handle cases now.

Not alarming at all. Imagine if these numbers are not reported anymore. The fact that it is being reported on a daily basis for the more than two years speaks a lot about how slow Japan can adapt to changes.

Not even really news anymore. Time to move on from corona.

Pretty regular numbers compared to most of the rest of the world. Only thing we don’t have is being able to get our friends and family in for regular visits - glad the gov is working on that soon.

Let’s add some basic scientific facts to the Qanon crowd who are once again stating patently false or misleading statements. In JAPAN, Omicron has been the deadliest variant of Covid so far . The simple truth that the naysaying anti everything as related to Covid is that the minority purposely neglect to mention or deny this , the country is and has been 80% vaccinated. So the vaccines are working exactly as advertised…. Minimizing people’s chances of developing a severe case. It’s common sense . And if you look around the world , it’s pretty much the same model . Get vaccinated, don’t get seriously ill. Anti vax …. Have a nice trip to the ICU. And there’s also these other patently false statements about restrictions…. They must not have lived in Japan during the entire pandemic. We have never had any draconian restrictions or locked down . So whatever this “open up” and “time to move on “ the minority keeps whining about is a joke …. A very old fact free joke … there’s nothing good about anyone on a ventilator for any reason , but in particular…. Omicron… influenza has been nearly non existent during the pandemic because people are finally cleaning their hands properly and more frequently…. As well as common touch areas …. Doorknobs and so on ….

None of the comments here are anti vax or saying that restrictions should be thrown out of the window, your argument is a strawman

it's just because you don't know the history of some here

Looking forward to the foreigners being allowed in again so I can see my mates, who will help boost the economy. They Yen is very low at present, great opportunity for the government to do the right thing.

Perhaps before that the government could do another Go To to help boost the economy and help tourists regions. I would partake and help areas that have suffered because of Covid
