As a Tokyo citizen, I wanted the Olympics for economical reasons before.

Well, I don't any more.

I'm ashamed of the people who don't speak up against those Go To Travel and Jp Gov hiding infos.

The foreigners will go like "What are these people smiling for?"

These daily blow by blow updates as dry as they are, re-enforce Japan's doing ok( touch wood),Israel, large parts of the UK and Paris are in lockdown now.We got it good here despite the bleating for more testing. Actually for a change,it's quiet.

If you want to see a pandemic.... Just wait until the winter season is full blown. Lets just hope we are all safe and fine. No one wants to go down south with this virus. Im not sure if Cronovirsus is a painful death or not but sure not looking forward to one. Lets get to the hustle and start testing more.

The numbers are fairly stable, but they aren't going down in the big cities. Active cases seem to have stalled at around the 6000 mark for a few weeks now.

It is worth pointing out though that 19 prefectures have less than 10 active cases, and 3 of those 19 have no active COVID cases at all.

I don't see that to be noteworthy at all. They test nobody perhaps?
