So? What are the resulting deaths from the “skyrocketing” cases?

In the week ending Sunday, November 29th, there were 138 Covid-19 related deaths reported in Japan, making it the second deadliest week (Mon-Sun period) of the pandemic, after the week ending Sunday, May 3rd (144).

Of further note, the peak number of daily cases reported during the first wave was April 10th (708), while the peak for daily deaths during the first wave was May 8th (49). Similarly, during the second wave, cases peaked on August 7th (1595), whereas deaths peaked on September 4th (19). Serious case numbers split the difference, peaking roughly 2-3 weeks after cases, and roughly one week before deaths. Based on these trends, we can expect deaths to continue to rise for 1-3 weeks after the case number begins to fall.

how many deaths are reported today? just asking as want to figure %

There were 14,384 reported this week in Japan, making the CFR roughly 0.95% for this week. However, if as above, mortality trails case positivity rate by roughly 2 weeks, then calculating using case positivity for 2 weeks ago (10058 cases) gives CFR of roughly 1.37%.

Still no news of vaccine roll out in Japan. It’s headline news daily in global news outlets. Let’s see the extent that Japan mires the roll out in paper work and committees.

By age group, the highest number of cases were people in their 40s (69), followed by 68 in their 20s and 51 in their 30s.

Is there a reason why the most vulnerable age group 60s to 90s are not given ?

Everybody by now knows that the asymptomatic and the mild cases are usually the 20s and 30s.

while the over 60s in most cases have underlying illness or weakened immune system.

Matej, go on COVID 19 Japan and they give you all the stats.

HBJ, so true, they are testing more, and so, the numbers are going up and I believe they are much higher and should they really ramp up the testing the numbers could go in the 5 digits.

Test less, find less.
