Good. Nothing bad can be taken from this.

Keep jabbing! Light at the end of the tunnel for normality to return.

Good news.

Japan is defying the predictions of the anti-vaxxers and their hysterics and that is the best way to get back to something approaching normal life.

Let’s see the death figures over the next few weeks.

Agreed @theResident 4:52pm.Cautiously Optimistic”. So then, let’s give it ALL a rest till about 2 weeks after the holidays, ey?

Long weekend again. People traveling around. And besides another increase maybe not just in our area. Let's wait what it will look like mid next week. Still hoping for even lower numbers, but who really knows.

Seems fair enough @Jimizo 5:24pm: Let’s see the death figures over the next few weeks.” Japan… defying hysterics and that is the best way to get back to something approaching normal life.” - The weather was lovely today in Kyoto yet, on a ‘mysterious’ note, all Pocky was ‘sold out’ at, AND around the station.

The number of comments is falling faster than the number of cases! I was at the mall today and felt refreshing to dip my hand back into society. A very pleasant young lady introduced me to some nice t-shirts and I bought one. Small victory in getting out of the house.

Perhaps MANY are just ‘out & about’, enjoying the post-tropical storm, spring-like breezes. Maybe even a ‘touch of romance’ for those feeling somewhat, reckless. - For those feeling repressed with the continued SOE through the holidays, you might enjoy “Have Your Say” to ‘tell it like it is’. - Peace to ALL, respect the elderly and stay safe.

Nice afternoon out in Osaka, very busy. Seemed like normal here most of the time anyway but even more places open now. Hoping the small businesses do well and start getting dough into the tills.

Good to see the end of number crunching here, hopefully that’s ended for good.

For many many days, the number of infections in Tokyo is down by 60% compared to the day of the previous week, amazing Tokyo.

Let's celebrate the end of the Covid19 disease in Japan, a very unique country on planet Earth.

On October 1st, let's drink alcohol and eat after 8pm.

LDP will have a new minister.

Japanese are going to be vaccinated for end of October/beginning of November.

What a wonderful future we can see.

Let's enjoy life. Freedom is back !

Hey where are the Debbie Downers on not enough testing? Now I do not have to tell them I would refuse a random test as I feel great.

Only 6,555 tests! What a surprise? Limit the tests and lower the number of infections!

You are welcome!

Numan

can you provide evidence of a deliberate attempt by authorities to limit the numbers to conceal true cases please?

can you provide evidence of a deliberate attempt by authorities to limit the numbers to conceal true cases please?

Can you provide evidence to back up your long Covid claims?

Glass houses, Steve.

Use of the term “*authorities” *@ffs 7:51pm infers someone was ‘in-charge’ and ‘had a plan’ to handle the pandemic in Japan. And we ALL know, they ‘played it by ear’ with their patented “wait & see’ approach to EVERYTHING.

While I never totally trust the numbers, a nationwide total that is below what Tokyo alone had this time last month, it’s kinda hard for even the most die hard of the catastrophe prone to deny that this is an improvement. Enoshima was packed with surfers today! It was nice to get out and about for a stroll! Can’t wait until I can have a beer with my food.

And in other news Japan lifts entry ban from 44 countries, let's hope this trend continues.

While the first thought that popped out of my mind regarding your post was that they can easily deny by saying the usual lines "with low number of tests we don't know the real numbers the true number of positives could be a hundred times and the dead are being hidden no test post mortem etc etc and so on and so forth ", it seems you are indeed correct because although it's clear they are just lurking in the background they haven't been actively posting as of yet

The numbers of young sick people needs to go down more . . . .

The latter have been much more calm and rational about the pandemic.

You mean like when you told us that Covid burned itself out last year?

Can you post links to the sources which led you to this idea?

I’m genuinely interested in reading them.

150m vaccine doses have done the trick it seems. Hopefully this downward trend continues over the next few weeks.

It was a kind of flu that was malignant.
