Running out of money already?

Or missing those who admire her?

Just another PR stunt to stay in the headlines?

Whatever it might be .... stop the flip-flopping and stay home!

Looking good so far, if the count is correct. Maybe then we'll be back to normal soon. Still concerns remain!

Suggesting optimism?

Lifting the so-called state of emergency?

Just in time for those elections to make him and his party look oh so great!

They should've had better plans to fight the infection from the beginning.

Everything was too little, too late ..... but who am I to judge.

Remember this song?

"It's a kind of magic."

Miracles seem to happen!

Cases down again, except for a more or less constant count (also?) in our area,

despite a high vaccination rate. What is going on?

Posted in: PM hopefuls rally local support with focus on tourism, agriculture See in context

Yeah, sure tourism and agriculture.

Tourism where tourists pay the double or even more for a hotel stay compared with other countries.

Not even mentioning the flight cost and everything else that is connected to their stay.

Agriculture, sure, so those farmers who have supported you for decades feel good and vote for you.

The price for rice and other agricultural products is so high compared with other countries.

But of course, you will get it the way you want it ... your way!

Quite an expensive event for Hirai, but I guess that 1 month pay-cut is nothing but peanuts for him. As for the others involved, they should be fired.

She / they probably (or most definitely) got enough $$$ already.

Not depending on those peanuts - contrary to many others.

Another increase compared with (at least) yesterday and this on a weekend.

Wonder what the count will look like next week. Still hoping for better times to come .....

...... the sooner, the better!

"Hopes and dreams"??

Guess quite a number of people don't see it like this.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 235 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 2,093 See in context

235 only ... good to see and very inspiring .... (NOT YET!)

..... with 2.000 tests performed, an election coming up, and so on.

I said it before: if the count continues to fall like this in the next couple of weeks, I'll applaud!

But time will show. In our area the daily average was "just" 18 for the past couple of days, but it was close to or even 0 before.

Time to retire, all I say!

Who knows what will happen in 5 or 10 years.

I am sure, however, the money "we" receive will be less and less in the years to come.

How about those politicians also pay their fair share into the system?

Decreasing pace slowing down?

Let's wait what it will look like after the weekend. If the downtrend continues I will be the first one to applaud!

Spoiled little brat. She made enough money now it's time for her to get out. Enjoy life without excuses as well as watching the new generation of tennis players.

Bokuda, so still 20 percent!

Way too many!

Of course. The same when numbers decrease. It's all like a rollercoaster, but good to see that the count is lower than it was same time last week.

Posted in: Gov't leans toward lifting state of emergency at end of month See in context

In other news, COVID cases increased in "our area".

This despite a high vaccination rate!

Well, at least they're leaning now, no more thinking, considering and/or planning.

How was that again concerning the f. . lady? The singing hasn't stopped yet. And please remember, one year ago those roughly 300 accounted for all Japan, not just Tokyo!

Long weekend again. People traveling around. And besides another increase maybe not just in our area. Let's wait what it will look like mid next week. Still hoping for even lower numbers, but who really knows.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 782 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 5,091 See in context

Decreasing further and further.

Looking good so far ....

... but as always I ask for the test count.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 831 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 5,705 See in context


Good news indeed! But with all due respect, asking for a return back to before Corona times might be a little too early. And the always elderly . . . . don't know about that! Too many younger folks experience Covid problems now.

0 ( +10 / -10 )

Posted in: Tokyo reports 1,052 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 6,806 See in context

Agree with all that has been said so far.

Still, more than 1.000 cases every day with little testing is way too much.

I expect the counts to remain in the 1.000 range for the time being and hope for no further increases!

-3 ( +9 / -12 )

Posted in: Tokyo reports 1,004 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 6,277 See in context

Maybe people shouldn't forget that compared with July the fatality rate of people dying at home in August increased 8 times, from roughly 30 to 240. Let's wait until the end of this month to see what's really going on. If COVID 19 cases keep on decreasing and the fatality rate as well, then all I can and will say is: "mea culpa"!

Posted in: Tokyo reports 1,004 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 6,277 See in context

Down here the numbers have doubled.

How far can we trust those case counts?

How many tests conducted?

How much tracing (not?) being done?

Still, it's good to see the cases have decreased compared with one week ago!

-2 ( +9 / -11 )

Posted in: Tokyo reports 611 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 4,171 See in context

First skyrocketing, now very low numbers. Hope it will continue with those low counts - not the ones of the PCR tests, of course!

-2 ( +2 / -4 )

Posted in: Tokyo reports 1,067 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 7,212 See in context

Once again - it looks very promising! Let's wait until Wednesday or Thursday to make more positive comments. Still waiting for the numbers of tests conducted or not. In addition how about the other prefectures?

-7 ( +9 / -16 )

Posted in: Tokyo reports 1,273 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 8,807 See in context

Looks promising . . .

As always - time will show.

-2 ( +5 / -7 )

Posted in: Tokyo reports 1,242 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 8,892 See in context

To be honest, I hope the cases of infections will drop even further.

But that's just me hoping! The future will show.

In addition new variants are appearing .... how will they affect our future daily lives?
