Is there anything that the govenment doesn't employ a bean-counter to keep track of, other than nefarious behaviour by members of the government?

That could just be one bear seen by 13,600 people or 10 bears seen by 1,360 people or... so it may mean nothing much really. However it is reported...

The rest of the world is imposing lockdowns to limit the spread of the virus.
The Japanese government is getting a stadium full, at 100% capacity, with people to see what happens...
It looks like the Japanese way of thinking has mutated to a level that is very different from the rest of the world...

They do not know the possible outcome and it may be that hundreds can be infected and some may even die.
The Japanese government is conducting a biological experiment on its citizens.
In my opinion this is not an act a civilized country, with properly functioning government, would do.
How many government officials are going to the game and sitting among the people?

“400 cases among a population of 14.000.000 in Tokyo is 0.0028%”
A number in itself may not be big or have much meaning. It is the trend (i.e. the big picture) that is more important and it shows that the number of infections are growing. It shows that if people continue to do what they are doing now the virus will spread more and more. The spread is not linear – today may be 0.0028% however tomorrow may be 0.05%, then 1% then by the end of the year 10% and then it is too late to stop it. Based on this information there is no need for panic now however there is need for change in the people’s, and the government’s, behavior /actions. If you focus only on the 0.0028% today you are missing the big picture and you will not see a reason to change your behavior/actions in order to prevent further increase in the spread of the virus and much more difficult times ahead.

"With so many asymptomatic people, PCR testing is a must," Kono said in a press conference..."
The Japanese government's approach seems not to follow this logic...

"Lets look at Okayama pref, pop almost 2M, number of corona virus related calls to the welfare centers etc 45,632 calls. Total number of people tested 2094 that is 0.001% number of infected cases 29.
0.001% tested is like the geneal trend in almost every prefecture in japan. The numbers being low is not difficult to understand,"
2,094/2,000,000=0.1% not 0.001%.
This is an example of how inaccurate commenters can be...
