Waste of time reporting this!

hospitalisations are basically insignificant!

what they need to do is put up some totals for everything people are hospitalised for and how many are hospitalised. Once that occurred people would see how pointless and low these numbers for Covid are!

You always seem very eager to read & comment on the daily report though. As if you can't wait for it.

'Some totals for everything?' How does that work?

We also need to focus on long covid. It is devastating a lot of people's lives.

We don't need to "focus" on anything that cannot be measured let alone identified and is very likely psychosomatic

-13 ( +8 / -21 )

It would be good to know the age breakdown of the severe hospitalizations as well. Looks like the numbers are very similar to the flu.

It’s been long understood it isn’t psychosomatic and many countries are seriously exploring therapies and how to handle long covid as a major future burden on society.

I agree with you completely, many have not heard of mis-a or mis-c a possible deadly outcome weeks to months after infection.

You mean like what the link in the article shows?

Ummm No…..the article only shows Covid…Albert

The article is clearly about Covid . It’s reported daily because it’s a once in a generation event that also happens to be deadly . It’s also contagious. Most other illnesses are not contagious. Such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and so on. But for Covid, 30,000 people in Japan would not be dead. This also is just some flu . That’s a different respiratory illness . With all that ills people of the world, Covid was / is not something that we needed . There are more than enough other health issues for people to deal with. Countries don’t close borders for the flu now do they ? The disaster is that over 2 yrs and still going and the entire world is still dealing with this . And the end is nowhere in sight. This simply isn’t something we “learn to live with.” Not until people stop dying from it . And that’s not gonna change until the minority of people who are anti everything as related to Covid get with the program and start to care about themselves and others . The world didn’t “learn to live with” Polio, small pox , TB… and many other virulent diseases… right ? Instead , the world worked in unison to eradicate highly contagious/infectious diseases. So people need to stop with the naysaying and whining about “getting on.” They also need to join the responsible majority and do everything they possibly can for the good of everyone. Not just themselves. Do you people that are always whining about any Covid mitigation drive ?

Huge numbers still. Especially in Okinawa and Chiba.

This is far from over.

Stay home, stay away from other people. Most importantly, mask up.

Wow, a link on a covid article only showing covid… groundbreaking.

You could always look up the other statistics if you wanted to find out, but we all know you don’t actually care about that and have other motives. You don’t even live here bogan, cool your pipes lol

How do they know it is long covid and not longer term adverse side effects of vaccines? The vaccines have had the same adverse side effects as long covid and has been quite numerous to ignore.

Here is the vaccine data from VAERS that historically compares the adverse side effects of the COVID vaccines and all vaccines. The COVID vaccines have a lot of adverse side effects. Surprised the COVID vaccines have not been pulled from the market when historically medication and vaccines with a tiny fraction of the adverse side effects have been pulled from the market.
