Tokyo is doing okay I think but there are other parts of the country where infections are spreading. Overall though, given Japan's population, 6000 active infections is not many.

-8 ( +5 / -13 )

124 confirmed cases. That is still a lot of infected people. Those 124 who were tested positive may have already spread the virus to others by the the time they got tested and confirmed to be truly positive. Hope the number continues to go down.

Stay safe and follow the safety measures, folks.

You need to test a large sample size to get any meaningful readings.

I'm waiting for the day somebody decides to make the study. Then we'll be able to say if the spreading of the virus is high or low.

There is no data to make such a study. The closest we have is the fact that Tokyo's been having about 3 deaths a day lately. We know the worldwide CFR (case fatality rate) is around 0.1%. So we can summarize from that that in Tokyo there are about 3000 real cases per day. So about 20x the official numbers.

follow the safety measures

Just curious, what do you consider "safety measures" that we have in place?

Japan,s test regime and its results are meaningless and impossible to compare with other countries...no point in even following the ' official ' numbers here. Small central European countries with population half the size of Tokyo testing 40 thousand a day....Tokyo 4 to 5 thousand. Ridiculous...tatemae and safety Japan image are more important than anything.

Covid-19 data. From the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.

https://stopcovid19.metro.tokyo.lg.jp/en/

Number of hospitalized people reported yesterday: 945.

Number of hospitalized people reported today: 980.

Day-over-day change: +35 persons

Mild-moderate and Serious symptoms data. They are already included in the total number of people hospitalized. It should also be remembered that data on severe symptoms are already reflected in the Japan Today article. And there is no need to mention them again in the comments.

Results with the data, from yesterday Saturday 24/10/2010.

Patients hospitalized by COVID in Tokyo Prefecture, per 100,000 inhabitants. Saturday 17/10/2020 was: 7,15

Patients hospitalized by COVID in Tokyo Prefecture, per 100,000 inhabitants. Yesterday, Saturday 24/10/2020 was: 6,78

Compared to last Saturday. The rate of people hospitalized for coronavirus, per 100,000 inhabitants in Tokyo Prefecture.. It has been reduced by 0,37 points. Getting to be, below the coefficient of 7.

This is excellent news. If Tokyo in the future, manages to lower the coefficient of 6 people hospitalized, per 100,000 inhabitants. Officially it will have managed to control the spread of the virus. Thus beginning the process of eradication.

There is only a small effort left to achieve this. The hardest work is already done.

And if you factor in the 2 layers of masks and overall health (obesity , diabetes etc..) you will probably rich a number that is very close to what has been reported.

You realize your argument works against the point you are trying to make, right? If the population is healthier, and the CFR is lower, than the # of actual cases is higher, not lower, as you claim.

No it doesn't !

As simplified as your calculation YES. healthier population would mean more infections.

But that is nonsense isn't it , how and why health has anything to do with the infection rate.?

Meaning your formula is incorrect.

On the other hand if less people show up on testing because they are healthier the reported infections would drop.

Meaning there is no Olympics conspiracy and evil under reporting . which I think is the point you are trying to make

Figuring out the infection rate using deaths is simple impossible

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

But that is nonsense isn't it , how and why health has anything to do with the infection rate.?

Of course existence of antibodies could explain how and why but it can also explain the low infection rate in Tokyo which doesn't work for you either.

I am assuming this isn't the case.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

No it doesn't !

Ok then!

which I think is the point you are trying to make

You have no idea what point I am trying to make, obviously.
