Numbers staying low. These consistently low numbers seem to be a disappointment to many posters on this site.

Fixed it for you.

2500 tests is ridiculous for Japan's population.... are they contact tracing and understanding where new infections are coming from or have we given up because it's all too hard?

There soon will be more suicides than covid tests in Japan.

Hopefully, it is a very good goal to have no need for any tests done after eradication of the disease

Covid-19 data. From the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.

Number of hospitalized people reported yesterday: 1116.

Number of hospitalized people reported today: 1083.

Difference between yesterday and today: -33

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 daily fill-in-the-blank article is not really helpful as the top National News item (unless it spikes to like a 1000 per day). Maybe JT should just have a link to these daily updates instead of an article?

Haha, so random.
