Tokyo seems to be doing okay but the Hokkaido numbers are a bit of a worry. Still under 6000 active cases in Japan which is a tiny percentage of the population.

I think Anyone of us here in Japan are at a higher risk of getting the virus if you have young children as schools are open and they can bring it home unknowingly. PCR testing should be mandatory every Friday of every week to help shutdown schools during the pandemic. Singles with out children who live alone have a lower risk as long as they are not commuting on Jammed packed crowded trains and going out to lunch at a family restaurant daily.

Covid-19 data. From the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.

Number of hospitalized people reported yesterday: 1008.

Number of hospitalized people reported today: 1085.

Difference between yesterday and today: +77

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.

This increase in hospital admissions. It may be due to delays in data collection. It is still too early to determine. Whether there is an actual increase in infection. The data from the following days will be crucial.

Thanks for updating the stats daily.

Dr. Anthony Fauci said this virus is never going away. We just have to embrace it. Hopefully this virus is nothing but a silly cold like Trump is saying.
