I'm not comfortable at home working on a little table with a laptop. I need several breaks to stretch.

A real desk, large keyboard, big screens and comfortable chair at the office increase my productivity.

Who cares about ther number of test? Here are the numbers that count:

Japan covid 19 deaths 1590

Japan deaths per 100,000, 1.23

Japan case fatality rate 1.9

You're funny

How do you tell accurately the covid-19 fatality rate without enough pre and post-mortem tests ?

Your numbers don't mean anything as well.

Japanese people need to learn two things in life, 1) What other people say and think is not important and 2) You can always start over when you fail. Emphasis on 1.

Agreed.

The "bushido" way to escape bad things isn't the noble way anymore. Fighting your bullies or ignoring them is the best one.

Suicide in Japan, unfortunately, is not only common in the show business.

This society is sick. And, since the tradition is not to change ... the traditions, the suicide appears to be the best escape from a life you don't want.

So out of 9M people in Tokyo we have 26 seriously sick with corona.

That's .0000028% of the population. The total number of people with corona is .0026% of the population. But yeah, let's keep making everyone wear masks, and keep making a lot of people wear gloves, force shops to use plastic shields and close early.

Tou'd have the same rhetoric with AIDS ? Let's take our chances with unprotected sex ?

Europe standards for PCR tests are using a high "Cycle Threshold" resulting a high rate of positive tests even if only few old non-contagious covid-19 fragment are detected.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 170 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 507 See in context

The fatality and seriously ill numbers seem to be very low. Therefore, what's the point of testing more people than is needed, such as those with symptoms and part of a cluster?

The problem is also about lack of post-mortem testing. So you can't precisely determine the fatality rate and hence have a good testing strategy.

From the 21th century the trend is really bad :

@Martini, what are you talking about? Just a few months ago most EU countries, specifically Italy, Spain and the UK were overflowing with coronavirus deaths. That never happened in Japan.

Diabete, obesity and other factors explain the death rate. Japan is (currently) protected from that thanks to a better diet.

I don't think japanese health system or governement actions have something to do with it.
