I don’t think it’s a wave anymore. It’s endemic.

Are these ‘Good low numbers’?

For some, it seems any figures are ‘Good low numbers.’

Good low numbers, as we see total normality return to Japan, apart from the mask wearing silliness.

Namba was jam packed today so is Umeda where I am currently, great to see so many about, though the crowds can be rather bothersome when one is dashing about.

Good low numbers, 

You stated ‘Good low numbers’ on August 30, when there were 152,256 new cases.

You stated ‘Good low numbers’ on December 14 last year, when there were 144 new cases.

I ask again, what are ‘Good low numbers’ when any figure seems to deserve this comment from you?

True! However, one poster keeps repeating the same phrase over and over and over again, and has done so for over a year.

I only announce good low numbers when they are falling such as now you see. This latest wave is almost gone and hopefully this mask wearing fetish lark will finish.

So, is 152,256 ‘low,’ or is 144 ‘low?’

Otherwise, stating ‘Good low numbers’ every time the figure decreases is meaningless piffle.

In a country of about 130 million people, 64,000 COVID cases (vast majority of which are mild) is less than a drop in the bucket.

Time to knock it off with the COVID obsession already. Specifically, this media obsession with precise COVID numbers needs to stop. So does the en-masse wearing of the ridiculous face-diapers.

Why are people here still wearing masks again?

I’m giving my perspective of the numbers, maybe yours is different. Everyone is different, if they weren’t the would would be very queer and incredibly boring.

I consider the numbers as good low numbers, that’s my view of the current situation, reality to me, meaningless piffle to you.

Why?

The number of coronavirus-related deaths was 87.

So it's only double digits now, hopefully it continues to go down.
