It's good to see the numbers dropping in Tokyo, but I wonder if it shall continue. The worry is the numbers under 30 who are being tested positive. They still are representing just over 45% of today's statistics.

Can someone please advise me on how to look back on previous days here in Japan Today?

I have searched other sites but the figures do not correspond correctly.

Have a great and safe weekend.

It seems and looks good for Tokyo numbers again here. Down 35,786 from last month at the same time, and percentage wise of total numbers for Tokyo, again dow from 21.91% last month to only 6.88% this month.

Still a little worried about the under 30's with the 422 today representing 40.11% of today's cases.

Just saying, be aware, and stay safe.

Well, could it be good news?

The number of cases is dropping considerably, compared to last month, however, the SOE is yet extended again.

Example. Last month for Tokyo Prefecture as of the 9th.

34,201 cases, 252,169 since the beginning, making that 13.56% of all since it started.

This month. 18,884 cases, 362,458 since the beginning representing also for that month a much higher percentage of 13.56%

The worrying figures/statistics are the people under 30, and although I didn't record these last month, just on a daily basis, today's 534 under 30 years of age represents 43% of the 1,242 cases.

Just hoping this trend also drops over time.

In the meantime, stay safe.

Are we very sure that the numbers stated are correct?

Not that I am unhappy at all. In fact, looking at the figures for last month at the same time it's fantastic.

According to my statistics, they are as follows.

The August count to the 8th 31,217, compared to September's 17,452, a drop of 13,765 cases.

So far this month the 17,452 cases, represents a low 4.83% of the total 361,026 cases, so this percentage is very welcome indeed.

Come on Tokyo people, get your vaccinations as soon as possible, so we can once again enjoy a bit more freedom and entertainment.

Cheers for now and stay safe.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 1,629 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 10,6033 See in context

Now I have Japan's total cases for today, and I did earlier post Tokyo Prefecture's figures, let me refresh it all for you.

Japan today, 10,603 cases, and for the month 102,752 cases, making it 6.45% of cases.

Tokyo, 1,629 cases, and for the month 15,618 cases, making that 4.35%

Now when we look at Japan versus Tokyo, on the daily figure, (10,603 V 1,629), that equates to 15.36%

Japan Versus Tokyo for the month to date, (102,752 V 15,618), that equates to 15.36%

And finally overall since the pandemic began, Again Japan versus Tokyo, (1,594,040 V 359,192) works out to 22.53%.

Although numbers they say are dropping, compared to last month at the same time, Japan had 91,455 cases, while Tokyo had 27,251. One up, one down.

Let's hope the trend for Tokyo continues, and Japan drops away quickly.

WOW! Suddenly a rise of 661 from yesterday? I guess someone may have missed some numbers from yesterday.

Anyhow to facts and figures.

Japan (as a total up to last night for this month only have on record a number of 92,149 cases. That now represents already 5.82% of all cases since the pandemic started.

And now today for the Tokyo prefecture.

Under 30's cases represent 44.81% of today's numbers, while for the month so far a5,618 cases from the 359,192 total cases. Again, at the moment, for this, it only represents 4.35% for this month as like Japan's statistics, but watch this space. Those percentages will rise every day.

As I finish off on my FB page, cheers for now and stay safe.

Hmmmm! Can we really believe these numbers?

It's great news if true. But, in saying that, people under 30 still account for 43.9% 0f today's figures.

Also the 968 cases brings this month's total for Tokyo to 13,989 from an all out figure since the beginning of statistics last year, to 357,963 cases.

Let's not be TOO complacent and let our guard down, hey?

From a concerned, and vaccinated resident from overseas.

Have a great day!

And we are now getting a new week about to start, and numbers to my mind don't seem to be where they should be.

With 1,853 cases today, that brings the total number of cases for the month here in the Tokyo prefecture to 13,021.  That represents 3.65% of all cases this month so far, which is small I admit low, but considering the prefecture's total since the beginning of the pandemic now is 356,595 cases, that still is not the numbers or percentage I would like to see it.

Just saying my bit for what it's worth.

Cheers for now and stay safe

Sure it's great to see the numbers falling, so to speak, but it seems of the 2,362 people tested with the virus today, 1,068 or 49.45% of those were under 30. And whilst for this month the number for Tokyo Prefecture is now at 11,168, the percentage of all cases since the beginning is slowly rising to 3.18% from the 354,742 cases.

And is the PM resigning for what reason? I feel it might have a lot to do with the mismanagement during COVID-19.

Again, do your thing and get vaccinated people!

I've had my 2 shots and had no problems at all.

An old family friend of mine wrote an article in Adelaide's Advertiser paper yesterday, and I was thinking of copying and pasting here, but I guess it would be too long for you to read, so I posted it yesterday on my social media page.

So numbers are dropping are they? Well, not according to my records. Tokyo area is already 1,016 more at this time compared to the first 2 days of August. The under 30's are representing 44.45% of the 3,099 cases.

What more can I say, but be careful, and not too complacent people.

Rant over.

Oh dear! What a month for Tokyo. A total of 125,606 cases, out of 343,574 since the beginning. That represents 36.55% of all cases. And 1,278 cases for those under 30 also represents 43.93$

When will the Govt. wake up that the state of emergencies they declare, is not doing anything at all to kerb the numbers.

Question: If JT know Tokyo's figures, surely they must know the nation's too?

Well it is kind of pleasing to see the cases have dropped by just over 500 from last Monday, however in saying that the 122,697 cases here in Tokyo Prefecture this month still represents 36.02% of the total cases of 340,665

Posted in: Tokyo reports 3,081 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 19,312 See in context

The numbers may be down as mentioned, however people under 30 account for 47.08% of today's cases. Tokyo now has had, just for this month, 120,782 cases, which represents 35.65% of Tokyo's 338,750 cases since it started. And they had 2,226 people line up today for vaccinations, and only 354 people were lucky enough to win the lottery. Why couldn't this have been done online, and then be given the address of where it was to be? A HUGE possible super Sunday spreader in my eyes.

Who organizes these things? I have my ideas.

I'm sorry, but am I missing something here? 2,226 people line up and only 354 get the shot. Why create a possible super spreader in public, instead of an online lottery? Crazy crazy crazy people not thinking, is my guess.

Good afternoon. DidI just write good? Well, as far as numbers go, yes there are 646 cases less than yesterday, but then the 3,581 added to the month for Tokyo, still represent a tad over 35% of all cases. And of people under 30 years of age, 1,622 of those 3,581 is a whopping 45.29% of the day's figure.

Just looked at the scramble crossing in Shibuya. To me, people don't seem to worry about social distancing.

Here we go again. With the last 5 of 6 days here in Tokyo being over the 4,000 mark, today brings Tokyo's monthly total to 114,120 out of a full total of332,088. This now means just from this month, Tokyo has already achieved 36.43% of all cases.

I want to go home soon to visit family and friends down under in Australia, but it certainly, sadly won't be this year, because of restrictions, and exorbitant airfares too.

Mr. Prime Minister! Please do something a little more conclusive than the slap on the wrist basically, as far as the current state of emergency goes, PLEASE!

According to my records for this month only, just here in Tokyo, there have been 109,893 cases. That represents 32.3% of the 327,861 cases Tokyo has had since the start of this horrible pandemic. And now also it seems to be hitting much younger people too.

Oh my! That now brings Tokyo's cases for this month to 100,296 (according to figures retrieved from NTT) and in fact, now represents 31.66% of all cases for Tokyo Prefecture since the pandemic started.

Looking at the Livestream of the Shibuya scramble crossing, it does not look like the Japanese people even think there is a problem. Just saying.

Alfie Noakes. Thank you, however, it doesn't show total numbers, and as I'm new to this comments bit here, I don't know how to tag anyone.

5,386 cases? That now means just Tokyo alone this month has just reached 25.32% of all cases there since the beginning.

Why can't JapanToday post the full figures for Japan?

If they know Tokyo's and some other prefectures, why not the lot?

Just saying it, for what it's worth!

This is terrible again. If my statistics are correct, (and they were up until another news service stopped adding the total number of cases), to date for this month Tokyo has already 68,503 cases. There have been since the pandemic started 286,471 cases. That means 23.91% of all cases have occurred this month.

And a question, please. Why can't the government declare a lockdown? I understand it is in the constitution, but can't they amend that? Clearly, the state of emergency isn't working.

Posted in: Officials in Tokyo alarmed at lack of sense of crisis as virus cases hit record highs See in context

Sadly, the govt. (so I believe) has in the constitution that it can't order a lockdown, only a state of emergency, which clearly isn't working.

I am from South Australia, living here now, and although compared to other major countries the figures here in Japan are pretty low, however, in the last few days those figures have been rising rapidly.

I am a statistics man and have been keeping records almost from the day it came to Japan. And since it started, let me show you my figures, (taken from TV or newspapers), compared to those taken just in this month.

Japan cases overall. 904,036, cases this month 103,089 = 11.04%

Tokyo cases overall. 210,610, cases this month 36,716 = 17.43%

Japan cases overall 904,036. Tokyo cases overall 210,610 = 23.30%

Finally, yesterday the 29th was the worst day on record since the pandemic started.

Japan - 10,699 cases, Tokyo - 3,865 cases = 36.12%

Come on Tokyo residents. Lift your game, and let's do our bit to kerb this pandemic.

A South Australian, now residing in Tokyo, since the pandemic started I have myself been keeping records. This month alone Japan's number of cases is standing at, (all figures according to my records) 82,814. Overall cases 883,766. Therefore representing 9.37% of all cases. Similarly Tokyo this month 29,674 cases. Overall cases 203,568. Therefore representing 14.58% of all cases, and 23.03% overall cases in total. In fact, Tokyo's cases this month represent 35.83% of Japan's. Clearly, the State of Emergency isn't working properly, and this also can be seen, especially looking at the scramble crossing anytime from lunchtime through to mid-evening.


I would like to visit my hometown very soon
