Wish there was legal wagering on this because I see a pattern.

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Still extremely low.

-9 ( +11 / -20 )

I predicted 200's yesterday. A bit higher than expected, but surely be in the 200's tomorrow, as there were probably only a few hundred tests today.

4 ( +10 / -6 )

180 last Monday, 157 two Mondays ago, 87 three Mondays ago.

Sure is....as is the number of tests.

11 ( +18 / -7 )

and how many deaths?how many in % from total cases?

may we know also how many new cases of cancer or flu?

just to compare...

-4 ( +7 / -11 )

may we know also how many new cases of cancer or flu?

well, we're still waiting for accurate cancer cases numbers from 2011 radioactive accident ...

We also don't know how many kodokushi there are annually.

And you want official numbers here ?

well, we're still waiting for accurate cancer cases numbers from 2011 radioactive accident ...

Will we ever see the real numbers of Fukushima and COVID19 ?

How abt Osaka???.

decreasing trend. it is with strong happiness i can salute the efforts of all the medical staff helping to keep these numbers very low in japan. the numbers here have peaked i am sure.

-18 ( +3 / -21 )

I told you guys! Great news!

Thank you government for taking care of us!

NipponGlory, can you give us more details about what medical staff do to reduce the numbers of new cases?

7 ( +9 / -2 )

How many people in the city of Tokyo? 5,000 plus testing over 3 hundred positive cases, and so, if there were 15,000 tests done that would mean 900 plus cases keep going like that to get a real count of the situation here in Tokyo. I will say it again people the government is not going to keep you safe, their only interest is the bottom financial line that effects their pockets so be smart and keep safe.

Take the figure and multiply it by about 10. That is probably more realistic

Someone here is struggling with the maths...

Funny how people who would normally use a calculator to do a 2+2 now talk about trends.

There is absolutely no trend in these numbers whatsoever. If one wants to see a trend - and that has to be considered a weekly trend, not a daily one - the trend shows cases are increasing. You may compare Monday numbers for the past months and draw your conclusions.

@onedragon, @Ashley

Multiply it times 10 is 3140 cases.

Among a population of 14.000.000 in Tokyo is 0.02%.

Nationwide x10 is 15190

Among a population of 120.000.000 is 0.01%.

That doesnt gives me any sleepless night.

Somebody finally gets it. I'm appalled at how many people think it's a good idea to give the economic death sentence to small businesses for a few thousand cases of what for many is a bad cold. There's a wealth transfer in effect in the west, and it's the global blue chips that are profiting at the expense of small business owners and the average Joe. We'll also sadly see the neurological damage of starving our children's brains of oxygen much further down the line. The world's gone mad.

Covid-19 data. From the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.

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

Number of people hospitalized by COVID. Reported yesterday: 1462.

Number of people hospitalized by COVID. Reported today: 1483.

Day-over-day change: +21 persons

Mild-moderate and Serious symptoms data. They are already included in the total number of people hospitalized. It should also be remembered that data on severe symptoms are already reflected in the Japan Today article. And there is no need to mention them again in the comments.

Patients hospitalized by COVID in Tokyo Prefecture, per 100,000 inhabitants. Yesterday's data: 10,49 points.

Patients hospitalized by COVID in Tokyo Prefecture, per 100,000 inhabitants. Today's data: 10,64 points.

Day-over-day change: +0,15 points.

Masks?

First time I've heard that one

3 ( +4 / -1 )

Past two weeks 6000 cases equals increase of 13 intensive care cases

11 deaths

0.4% chance of icu or death.

onedragon, @Ashley

multiple that by ten and thats 0.04%

And don't forget that not one person under 25 has died in japan (one under 35)

And the average age of death is around the average age of life expectancy

Sorry if I feel no need to go beyond wearing a mask in crowded spaces and using alcohol on my hands.

Someone else who gets it. Those clowns at the World Economic Forum like to brag that we (not them, of course) will own nothing in 2030 and be happier for it. The way things are going with this exaggerated virus crisis, most people will have given it all away well before then in exchange for some vaccine or another, just so they can feel a bit safer. Even though only a tiny fraction of the population is vulnerable.

This is not good it’s creeping up and needs to be nipped in the bud ASAP.

I too assume that the true number of Infections is at least 10 times (probably a little more) than we aware of. Like the more sensible posters above, I will wear my mask and do the best to protect myself and those close to me. Its almost inevitable that 25% of posters above will get infected through no fault of their own (me too). Covid is rife in society now, period. It is now, however not worth committing economic suicide over like some countries are. All death is horrible, I am not being callous. But if we assume the infection rate is 10-15 times what we know, coupled with the deaths attributed to Covid in Japan, then we really need to get a grip. Enough of the hysterics about going (into an impossible, and illegal) lockdown.

Anybody who has reliable info on the supposed confirmation of the WHO during its5th special session that covid19 is no more deadlier than seasonal flu?

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

Ignoring total case numbers and focus on ICU admissions and deaths, Japan as had 13 deaths recorded so far today:

https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/tags/82/

The coronavirus is on par with the flu or even weaker

False, just check the cases of flu this year, under heavy social distancing measures, so you can have an idea of the difference. There is a reason why the people that deal with the disease are the ones sounding the alarm, and those that say its nothing have to use misleading statistics to "prove" their point, such as comparing with a much less lethal disease but with no special measures in place.

@Alex: How do you propose to 'nip it in the bud'?
