Looks like people are not reporting any more. And why should they- who wants to quarantine for 10 days plus 7 day for close contacts

Close contact is 3 days with a negative test result on day 2 or 3

Why count only 65 and over and severe cases and ignore data from everyone else?

Because 98% of deaths are people over 65 years old.

Because 96% of people under 65 recover within a few days at home if under 65

99.7% if under 50 7and 99.995 % if under 50 according to the latest data

Sorry, I didn't save the yahoo link

I don't wear a mask anywhere, if someone says something or looks agitated I just move to another carriage.

They'll be 50,000 cases a day in December and after they downgrade it, it won't even make the news.

Next, the number reported do not include my Australian friend and her 2 children here in Japan. Her daughter was sent home on Friday with a fever, her son last night and how she knows it is COVID a home testing kit that was sent home with her children and it was positive. I am sure there more people like their case, and so, for a fact the numbers are higher and are not being reported.

If your friend called the houkenjyo it's included. But you probably knew that already

It's pretty simple, either:

if you're worried stay home. Don't go to work as health is more important than money.

Go out and wear a mask when and wear you want.

Go to dinners etc and don't wear a mask

Me. I choose 3. If I get corona that's life. If I don't great. People might say that's selfish but if you're wearing a mask or staying home that do you have to worry about.

If you get corona most insurance policies pay out 10.000~20.000 a day per person as you are classified as an inpatient even though you are at home.

I know numerous families who received upwards of 250,000.

That's the main reason why many people get tested.

It's great they are not planning restrictions but unless they shorten the quarantine period the economy is going to grind to a halt anyway.

Even Omi said yesterday the death rate has fallen fromw5% to 0.5% and he supports changing the classification to a lower level.

This is not 2020 or even 2021.

Apparently the decision for Abe to go to Nara was made yesterday. Does that mean this lunatic was planning to kill anyone and decided on Abe at the last minute??

I hope this sick individual rots in jail for the rest of their life.

There won't be another s.o.e

After the election no need to pamper to the elderly

2.they cant afford it

Recent rulings on restaurant restrictions mean the barrier for closure is much higher.

People aren't scared anymore

Hospitalization rates are extremely low

Far more likely corona will be classified as level 5 within the next two months.

Personally, I recommend not wearing a mask and not bothering with booster shots.

And whatever you do. Don't get a pcr test !

For me the calculation is simple,

50/50 chance I'll notice if I catch corona.

Treat a runny nose as the plague and this is what happens.

Millions of healthy people stuck at home, a flailing economy and a docile society of mask wearing fools scared of a sore throat.

The higher the number of positives the more apparent the stupidity of it all becomes.

I agree the media panic machine is in overdrive on this but I also fear the Japanese authorities will totally overreact and shut the borders down at the drop of a hat. I’m a permanent resident and am supposed to return to Canada over the holidays for a fairly urgent family matter. Have no idea what to do.

I have just left japan due to a family emergency. I was told both by the Ministry and at the airport as long as you leave before any ban starts you are free to return.
