It would be great if the data was broken down to numbers of symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals.

0 ( +5 / -5 )

Tokyo seems to be doing alright but the numbers in Hokkaido seem to have increased recently. Hopefully the outbreak there can be brought under control.

-6 ( +2 / -8 )

The 7 day moving avg is around 169 and it is falling. Hopefully, this trend will continue.

Great ! the trend is good, only 1039 tests. Going slowly to the zero tests/zero cases and ready for Olympic.

Can't wait! Division by zero is undefined so the mathematicians here can't post the positive rate.

We are in a trough. I anticipate cases may rise in December.

You're probably right, most viruses have peaks and troughs.

Japan for whatever reason has largely avoid serious problems so far, so hopefully the next peak too won't be too severe nor require drastic measures.

To be in October (9 months into this) and to still be successfully balancing health and economy certainly makes me optimistic.

Is there anywhere, that we can see where exactly within Tokyo, these infections have been recorded ?

There doesn't appear to be any track & trace operation within Japan, so if we at least know whether we May have been exposed then additional precautions could be taken...
