Great that Tokyo is doing 6000 tests up from 4000. Catching up to other nations 100000+ tests.

most 20-30s yr olds will only experience mild flu like symptoms. Let’s concentrate on keeping the elderly safe.

Actually California alone is doing 100,000 tests per day. That being said, I believe that what’s most significant in both cases is not just the quantity, but more importantly the quality. If the situation is truly not dire in Tokyo, then perhaps they actually do not need the amount that a heavily infected nation/state as Cali requires.

As far as I know, you're the first to state this sensible view =)
