Out of the 4707 people in Tokyo sick enough with something on Wednesday September 30 to be able to convince a doctor to order a test, only 25 people had severe coronavirus symptoms - which equates to being hospitalized. The other 183 are told to go home and quarantine because their symptoms are too mild. I have said it before, 25 people hospitalized for COVID19 in a city of 13 million is statistically insignificant. More people were hospitalized in Tokyo for vehicle collisions on Wednesday.

Just because you said it repeatedly, it doesn't make it true. You realize that, right?

It’s a never ending cycle as it’s always about Tokyo reporting and the 208 who were tested positive have already spread it around. Let’s keep counting as it seems like a hobby now

Still less people than normal, especially without the Chinese. I was in Kyoto last Saturday (weekend after the 4-day weekend), and it was like a weekday. No wait at Gion Tsujiri.

Is it Tokyo Times or Japan Times?

I wonder why Tokyo alone is always in the focus... the reported 26k are just in one city. Its not Japans over all.
