So what? These daily announcements are just noise, not signal

-9 ( +6 / -15 )

Today 235 out of 6,443 tests

Yesterday 194 out of 941 tests

Who even believes any of these numbers? This makes no sense whatsoever.

Japan's TV channels have reduced reports about Covid19 with considering Suga Govt who prioritizes economy than preventing infection.

"Go To campaigns" such as "Go To Eat""Go To Travel" is done to benefit corporation who give political donation to Suga.

I don't understand why the most vulnerable age group, those 70 and above are never mentioned.

The likelihood of the 20s and 30s becoming mid to serious is slim while very high for the 70s and above.

Great, the downward trend continues. Perfect timing for the Gotos. Has the rainbiw bridge, tokyo and skytree been lit green?

You really don't know? This is a Japanese roundabout way of saying that the situation is not serious.

You can always get the full breakdown on the Tokyo Gov website. For example, yesterday, out 194, 23 were 70 or older.

Yesterday the 25% positive rate, with today a major improvement, JUST in time for Tokyo’s Go To start. How incredibly convenient.

No wonder people distrust governments and make up their own story. This is no better than China saying no community transnmission since August (all cases, a tiny number like 10 or 20 each day, were 'imported')

LOL, there is a 3 day lag, which means yesterdays results were from Sunday, which means fewer tests.

Dude, like a lot the posters you need to come up with something new.

No wories folk. My perception is that this is all nothing but a dream. Japan knows that this COVID-19 is not life threatening so they open their society as we see daily if you live in Toyko like me. Japan will not surrender to the illuminati who are using this virus to control and lock you down like a slave. Japan is playing it safe and acknolleging that yeah there is a pandemic but we know in japan its fake but we cant fake the fake or we get busted by other nations for exposing this falseness scam. Stay safe!

The downward trend in active cases has stopped. It seems to be a big city issue though. 4 prefectures have no active cases at all, and a further 14 have active cases in the single figures.

Hopefully we will see a further downtrend though over the next few weeks.
