77 cases in Tokyo on the day that 77% of the entire adult population (aged 18+) has been reported to be fully vaccinated.

Well, good for Tokyo and the people living there (if the count is not fake)!

Once again, in our little area the numbers have not changed!

What are we doing wrong? Or is it ....... ?

PCR Tested on 10/10: 1,775 people.

It's time to remove the testing restrictions, make it full available, and free.

Earlier peaks and valleys of new cases were low, and far apart. As things progressed, numbers went higher and closer together.

If case numbers start rising again, we’ll have a faster, higher peak. If numbers instead remain low, then we’re good... problem solved. It’s too soon to jump to conclusions either way.

This is really good. I feel like I am protected even when I walk among many people.

Good thing we don't have ridiculous anti-vaxxers like the US.

I think it would be better to include vaccinations in that analysis

I'm sure there are plenty here.

Nation wide numbers drop from 602 to 369.. I wish everyone in good health.

Good to see number is decreasing

Let’s get Go To up and running again. Fancy some traveling soon, what a great country to be in during Covid times. Worst is over and everyone can relax including those afraid of Covid

Encouraging numbers! Let's hope for the borders to be open soon for student and working visa.

Or at least would be great to receive some timelines from the government, but I doubt it' a priority right now..

@falseflagsteve

Hi Steve, do you really believe that? I'm not sure it's been a great place to be this past year. Friends in most countries around us here seem to have had more freedom and no 8pm curfew rules/etc etc

No mandates in Japan. People here are free. Get a free vaccine if you want. Travel wherever you want to and meet with whoever you want to, whenever you want to. Sure, in some areas restaurants and bars were closed at 8pm. But you could buy alcohol 24/7 and drink in public if you wanted to. No draconian measures here, thank god.

Been great here, many establishments were open late here and I travelled extensively. Many prefectures hardly had SOE and everywhere was open, also hotels have been dirt cheap. Going to places like Kyoto has been wonderful, very quiet and peaceful, I’m. Aki g the most of it while I can.

Natural immunity in action!

time to open the borders!

-2 ( +5 / -7 )

I'm very happy to see these numbers, but I'd like to see more people vaccinated and continued monitoring of travelers from abroad. The simple reason is breakthrough infections. SARS2 has not stopped evolving and in many places in the world lots of people are still getting infected.

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

Would love to go overeas at year's end.But with Japan keeping the 2 week quarantine rule,I feel like I'd be in a lockdown lol.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

It's well and good that cases are low now here in Japan but cases has to drop globally to be able to open the boarders.

And that is why vaccines must be equitably distributed, otherwise the world will just have a continuing fresh source of new variants if some countries remain with limited or no access to vaccines.

These numbers are fraud,their are thousands of infected people in Shinjuku station daily ,that are walking around infected,that are not tested

-8 ( +5 / -13 )

@steve

Wasn't that irresponsible of these places, though? Virus spreading and all that.

Travel wherever you want to and meet with whoever you want to, whenever you want to.

@joffy

This just seemed wrong in my opinion and dangerous.

oh so why are over 70% of the population vaccinated, far more people have been vaccinated compared to infected individuals.

the vaccinations are working and the case numbers are a reflection of that. that doesnt mean we should all let are guard down. millions still not vaccinated or refuse too so another wave is possible and opening Japan up during another wave is just stupidity

2 ( +6 / -4 )

I can't believe these numbers unless the government is doing less testing. And if they're doing less testing the numbers mean nothing.

-5 ( +4 / -9 )

Japan is seeing the benefits of NOT closing down and NOT following the sky is falling brigade on Lockdowns. The reason case numbers are dropping is that a very large portion of Japanese society has Natural immunity which is much better than the partial immunity vaccination with the current vaccines give. This has now become little more than the flu for Japan. The problem for countries that have introduced draconian lockdowns is that they have yet to have the virus go through communities and give natural immunity. High vaccination rates will help but as has been seen with waning efficacy of the mRNA vaccines it doesn't stop deaths amongst those who are already very ill or with underlying health conditions. Instead of blanket vaccinating down to unborn children they should be targeting the highly susceptible cohorts and letting the rest who won't die from covid gain natural immunity which inturn will create herd immunity and change this from a Novel virus to a mundane one!

Still a lot of skeptics around I see -

These numbers are fraud, their are thousands of infected people in Shinjuku station daily ,that are walking around infected,

you got evidence to back that up ?

 I can't believe these numbers 

ok, what number would you believe ?

agree with runner3 100%
