Outpatient clinics overstretched by rapid spread of Omicron

Here we go, even though Omicron does not show the same effects as Delta.

With increasing numbers this will be the major problem in the days and weeks to come.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 14,086 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 71,620 See in context

Increasing across the board!

Doesn't look too good now, does it?

Obese or not, you can get "hit" by the virus, some more, some less.

Bronco,

any reliable statistics concerning your statement in reference to Africa and the Middle East?

Just stating something without any factual evidence doesn't convince me.

Elsewise, I think Korea is doing the "right thing".

Ian,

maybe because they got caught with their pants down before?

Bad publicity and "bad things" can happen to you (see the former PM)!

Still, I don't even believe the "numbers" they're giving us now.

Liam Roberts,

thank you for waiting, but too much of an honor!

Well, at least I am still capable to add 1+1. And the positive test results are increasing day by day.

Agreed?

Oh well, it's almost 3 times compared with last week!

Guess you can't deny that. Our area (Ehime) also shows the highest number since this all started.

At least I was correct with my prediction that it will exceed 10.000 for Tokyo this week.

Now waiting for the "count-down-poster" and those claiming various aspects leading to the infection.

Not again that stop serving alcohol thing or only until 8 p.m.

This doesn't make sense at all and will only hurt business!

In addition, running out of test kits? Why? Didn't they have enough time to take care of this weeks or months ago? As always, too little - too late. Guess we have to get used to this.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 8,503 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 44,810 See in context

Once again double the amount compared with last week! And I wish people stopped the count down, for it doesn't make any sense at all!

Posted in: Is it better to wear an N95 or cloth mask? See in context

Science has proven that cloth masks don't do what they're supposed to do.

N95 (and comparable) masks are definitely the better (even though more expensive) option.

Roughly 1.000 people responded ....

.... that can't be called be an empirical result.

If they asked more people I'm sure his approval rating would be well below 55%!

5 ( +7 / -2 )

Posted in: Tokyo reports 9,468 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 50,030 See in context

More than double the amount compared with last week,

Of course another weekend count.

And the severe cases are slowly increasing, despite people claiming this virus is nothing but the flu.

Wonder what the case numbers will look like on Wednesday or Thursday.

"Just" another one of those "quasi SOE".

It ain't gonna help much, that's for sure.

Omicron, too, doesn't worry about the time of the day or night.

TokyoJoe,

seems you know what you're talking about.

I'm not only thinking of the people in ICU with COVID but also those who need different kinds of treatment, surgeries, and so on. Do you know how many medical workers are busy with one ICU patient? Let me tell you, it's quite a few. And hundreds or thousands of ICU beds? Tokyo has roughly 800, so still enough at this time, if it was for COVID patients only.

2 ( +9 / -7 )

Posted in: Tokyo reports 11,227 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 54,576 See in context

Once again double the amount compared with last week's Saturday.

If it continues like this (and I have little doubt) there will be more than 20.000 just for Tokyo next week Saturday (or even more?).

ICU cases seem to increase in addition .... burdening the medical system more and more, not just for those with COVID.

Yup, was a very noticeable one.

Earthquake alert went off instantly.

Lastet roughly 10 seconds but so far no damages reported for our area (Ehime).

Posted in: Tokyo reports 9,699 new cases; nationwide tally 49,854 See in context

9.699 new cases, double the amount (at least close) to what it was last week Friday.

400 severe cases (I assume that means ICU), 117 up compared with last Thursday (why not Friday?)

This doesn't look good at all, despite the comments of the deniers.

5..000 : more than last week.

Still the same and no end in sight!

I'm sure there are a many more out there .....

....... and expect the numbers to be in the 5 digit range latest by next week.

Iron Lad,

people still don't get it, right!

You can't compare Sunday's count with today!

Weekend counts are generally lower, I think that has been said a many times based on facts.

Iron Lad,

decreasing? How? It's even stated here 2.848 more than last Monday!

Did I miss something? Don't think so.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 4,172 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 25,483 See in context

More than double the amount compared with last Sunday!

Once again those in their 20's have the highest numbers.

Didn't someone say before if you exercise, if you are not obese, if you have no other underlying conditions you don't have to worry? Doesn't look like it!

Posted in: Tokyo reports 4,561 news coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 25,744 See in context

4.561 on a Saturday?

Up 3.337 compared with last Saturday .... this will never end!

Most of them in their 20s, must be the result of "becoming an adult day"?

MarkX, right and full agree!

I strongly assume the pay-check will be the same or even less for the time being.

Sooner or later just one job won't be enough to feed the family.

But they, those "upper ones" don't care.

Rob,

sorry, but what are you trying to tell people?

Overload on vitamin E?

Excessive vitamin E intake can cause blood thinning and lead to fatal bleeding!

Overloading on vitamin D?

An excess of vitamin D causes abnormally high blood concentrations of calcium, which can cause overcalcification of the bones, soft tissues, heart and kidneys.

And where did you get the information of the 80-year-old ones? Some secret source?

Maybe with your outstanding knowledge concerning vitamins and so on you can enlighten us?

Yes, sure, a cold, a mild flu and all those other oh so smart fact-based comments!

96 severe cases so far nationwide, severe like in ICU!

How about all the others, with less severe symptoms? Forgot to count them?

In addition to Okayama being listed last they could've continued with Ehime.

From 100 to 150 to 200 last count.

The 4 digit count has been reached for Tokyo - soon 5 digits?
