Posted in: Tokyo reports 136 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 579 See in context

5400 tests and only 136 cases? When the other day there were 900 tests but the same number infected?

That shouldn’t raise eyebrows.

all too common for Japanese pitchers, high school baseball needs to change its mindset, overusing their pitchers just leads to shorter careers later in life.

You got that right.

“At the 2018 tournament, Kosei Yoshida led Kanaashi Agricultural High School to the championship game behind 881 pitches over 50 innings in six outings, all in the span of two weeks.

They’ve had six months to prepare.

Do the so called “experts” actually say anything in meetings or do they just sit around tooth sucking and bobbing their heads?

“The SOE we had in April/May seems like a joke now. The numbers are much higher and no one really seems to care anymore.”

The gov’t played their only hand and it failed miserably. The SOE in April/May was exactly that, a joke. The fact that they declared victory over the virus is disgusting.

“People here are only happy when the numbers are very high.“

We’re not. But most of us have known for months that the actual numbers are WAY higher than what’s being reported, and we are skeptical of the gov’s actions/non actions.

“Kitchener Leslie 

can you please prove your post that the govt is lying about death toll in Japan?“

So magically the number of deaths in Japan is much lower than other countries? Believe that fairytale all you want.

Japan govt has been lying about the actual number of covid cases for months. Why would anyone believe the number of deaths is so low? Because Mindo?

“The death rate is low”

How do you know?

We’re being blatantly lied to about the number of actual cases, so what’s to stop the government from lying about the death toll?

“The government acts on the wishes of its people, it doesn't lock people in their homes against their wishes.”

The problem is that nobody in this country can think for themselves. They need to be shown how to react or behave. Just watch any trash evening television show.

People should be up in arms questioning their government at the moment, given the shady covid numbers.

But since Abe is literally hiding at the moment and nobody is saying there is a huge problem, the people think everything is okay and carry on.

Wait I thought new experts have been brought in to solve this.

Surely the new experts are doing a better job than the old experts at sitting around in meetings for hours nodding at each other.
