Results in Japan and South Korea are always lower on a Monday due to lack of testing on a Sunday

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Japan: You could have learned something from S.K., but you chose not to listen.

0 ( +5 / -5 )

The number of tests in S. Korea on April 5 was 5,571.

BTW, anybody please let me know where I can get info on the number of tests in Japan? Even I can not find the number of tests at https://www.mhlw.go.jp/stf/houdou/houdou_list_202004.html

It is interesting the countermeasures invented ad hoc for dealing with the coronavirus are also like meme, and viral around the world.

My observation is that Japan sometimes does listen and copy, quietly.

SJ, re test numbers, there are some numbers here up to the end of March, and another box above dated 1st April.
