@Nihonview: I hope you are ironically talking about your own daily comments?

I miss info how many % of Tokyo population have died solely because of covid.

I miss info how many % of Tokyo population have died solely because of covid.

Unfortunately, that information is either a state secret, or unknown as no tests are performed on dead people in Japan.

If you look at a high level graph of new cases we have passed two peaks, one in April and a higher one in August, and now the trough after August is stabilizing and is substantially higher than the prior troughs after April. One might conclude based on that that the next peak will come in December and be higher than the first two. Let's see what happens.

Given the total numbers of deaths in Tokyo. Can you figure out the % of Tokyo population died because of Covid?

-8 ( +6 / -14 )

Furthermore, looking to the data from NYTimes, the US also shows two peaks like Japan, a first smaller one and a second larger one, with second trough higher than the first trough; however, the good news is that the number of new deaths from the virus had a higher peak first and a lower second peak so it me be that although there will be more new cases in a third wave, mortality will be less. Quite intriguing and good news. Perhaps people with more susceptibility to the virus were infected first.

Is this daily news of low infections suppose to make us all fell good about the virus....

6 ( +7 / -1 )

Let's do a trial where a hundred thousand tests are done across Japan and see what numbers that are produced and if the numbers come back low like these we can feel a little more secure. However, if the numbers come back in the hundreds and or even thousands we need to keep the testing high until we have the virus under control. What does Japan have to loose?????

Covid-19 data. From the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.

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

Number of hospitalized people reported yesterday: 1057.

Number of hospitalized people reported today: 976.

Difference between yesterday and today: -81

Mild-moderate and Serious symptoms data. They are already included in the total number of people hospitalized.

Great news. The total number of people hospitalized in Tokyo Prefecture is under 1000. Now the important thing is to try to keep that number from rising.

By the way. According to these figures. The number of people hospitalized for coronavirus, per 100,000 inhabitants is: 7. 

976 ÷ 13929280 x 100000 = 7,0068

Reaching the threshold established by the WHO of 6 people per 100,000 inhabitants. To give as controlled, the incidence of coronavirus in Tokyo Prefecture.

My congratulations to the health authorities in Tokyo. For your success.

Not necessarily. If you look at the curve for cases and the curve for deaths, the curve for cases in the second peak was higher than that for the first. However, the curve for deaths in the second peak was lower than that of the first (from the link below).

That said, true case numbers are difficult to discern thanks to Japan's arcane testing regime, so it's difficult to draw clear conclusions other than the death rate seems to be declining.

Blah another post about tests. Dude get some new material.

I think you mean the dumb ratio since the data was available.

So what?

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

Same as the number of infections from the Rose Garden fete...

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

Does anybody still believe in the dangers of Covid? Hahaha!

0 ( +0 / -0 )

The CDC estimates that 40% of coronavirus cases are asymptomatic and that number is a conservative estimate which may actually mean that herd immunity is not far off.

Panic panic.

In all seriousness, the sooner the hysteria ends the better
