People are working overtime. They don't have time to take covid-19 test.

Because testing is not well organized in this country (and there's no will to improve things).

In other countries, it can be done fast and close to you (pharmacies, airports, working places, drive-through ...).

Lots of folks talk about the elders who drive and have caused accidents, to include loss of life, but why not make the cars safer for the elderly drivers, for example require drivers over a certain age have options added to their vehicles that warn them immediately if in the wrong lanes or excessive speed, the AI takes over the wheel. Perhaps not invented yet or in the process?

Yeah, because it's known that all elderly population can afford more expensive cars with their pension ...

The gyms are right to defy the lockdown. Being fit makes you stronger against the virus.

Not at all. Many cases of seriously ill or even dead high-level sportmen have been reported.

If french investigators are after you for almost the same accusations as their Japanese counterparts that not a coincidence Ghosn!

The main matter is to have a fair trial and not being treated like a murderer.

Sure he can be guilty of stealing money but why not the same process as for many japanese businessmen/politicians ?

Yep, the true figure would shrink the percentage of ill/seriously ill people/deaths even further.

Yes, while, somehow, serious pneumonia cases would increase ... but trust the gov, it's not related ...

Watch THIS number and react accordingly. The number of cases can look scary but the history of severe symptoms and deaths is not surging in Japan. That is a fact.

In Japan, hospitalized people are those who can afford hospital if you want to compare to other countries !

No social distancing at that meeting. Just 3,000 bed allocated for Covid patients in Tokyo, one of the biggest cities in the world. They couldn’t run a piss up in a brewery.

That's the point !

That's why these cases numbers are alarming. Do not take the raw contamination numbers, they have to be compared with the capacity of the country of handling serious cases.

In that regard, Japan is way behind other developed countries.

Just give them China and India's phone numbers... That should be a great starting point right there

Many rich countries, such as Japan, use India and China as their factory and their dump without caring about pollution or human rights.

Did you care how was made the device you're commenting from ?

Will you care what it'll become when you throw it away for a shiny new une ?

It's like accusing the gun of a crime and not the person holding it.

Why not focus on the number of deaths? That will give greater perspective and create less panic. But that would hardly serve the interest of a media outlet would it?

Once again, the lack of tests, esp. post-mortem ones, makes us unable to use the death count as a solid indicator.

We didn't see you for a while when numbers were 500+ recently ...

Actually they do tests on the dead also, though just like with the living, just not enough

Considering they only focus on living people with symptoms, i wonder how a dead bodies shows symptoms.

Posted in: Suga trips up with messy reversal on Go To Travel campaign See in context

Maybe the Japanese government needs to remide the public that Japan has the lowest death rate among the G7

without telling they don't do post-mortem tests and that the number of kodokushi is getting higher and higher ...

401 positives in Tokyo. This is a low number. I am relieved. the numbers mid week are normally very high. it is with a warm smile and happiness i am glad the situation here is not as bad as overseas.

Remember what you wrote just yesterday about the 186 cases ?

Low. As i fully and clearly explained. This is a decreasing trend. The combined total efforts of everyone has helped to reduce this horrible virus in japan. It has already peaked.

Can you fully and clearly explain to us again where's the decreasing trend ?

Sad we can no longer trust anyone.

Implying it was better in the past is wrong.

There's more media converage nowaday that's why you're under the impression things are getting worst.

The truth is the opposite but the media competition leads to report and emphasis everything.

In the next decade, why not every kids arguments in the playgrounds ?

Are we seeing excess deaths this year, overall? I'll see if I can find some figures.

Real figures from japanese officials ? :) never

Like, the radiation levels on the olympic parkings in Fukushima, there's a huge gap between official numbers and greenpeace ones.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 298 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 1,686 See in context

The number of deaths in Japan is extremely low compared to many countries that test way more.

Yes because, without testing, you can easily assign the reason of death to something else, like pneumonia.
