If you don’t believe it and think it’s a bunch of irritating lies why are you checking every day?

Errrr, it's a news story. This is a message board.

And actually, what has it got to do with you?

You post comments mocking others who don't agree with you, so continue with that.

Who knows @kurisupisu

Alot of selfish people out there in Tokyo who have blatantly ignored safety and warnings. Not a jot of guilt for the lives they could have affected by this horrible disease.

Everything will be ok in the end, one wishes. I'm sure there'll be another ridiculous go to campaign soon that the selfish will snap up

If doom and gloom is having a different view to you, then so be it.

You obviously believe the news story.Get out there and enjoy yourself.

Don't waste your time insulting posters who don't share your view on a message board:

That's doom and gloom

So you are claiming the numbers of positive cases given here each day are 'irritating lies'? If you have some more accurate numbers to share, feel free to do so.

The J-gov is doing of fine job of manipulating numbers as that get ever closer to the national election at the end of the month.

I predict an increase in infections in November like magic!

What’s the deal with all the conspiracy theories? If you are going to call it lies, you need to have some evidence.

The population has a high vaccination rate and the masses are still acting quite responsibly, it makes sense that we are seeing low numbers.

@Nibek32

That's fair enough. I just think the massive sudden drop is too good to be true.

I suppose being born and raised here has led me to distrust anything/any figures the government releases.

@stickman

During a pandemic? Thoroughly? Well done you.
