My question is, why so long to have it, if previous results were found to be 'somewhat concerning?' It doesn't make sense in my mind

Doesn't the newspaper mean down 2,227 from Friday?

Moderator: Yes, that was a mistake.

Hmmm! I seem to remember saying earlier in the week that numbers were down, because of it being a long weekend, and to wait until later.

Seems I was right, hey?

Of course, the numbers will be down, because it's a long weekend, and families are visiting family members in other prefectures. Let's see if those numbers start rising again by the end of this week, shall we?

Yeah! Going down, however, with a long week looming, it will continue to rise again, I feel!

I wonder how many tests were taken over the last 24 hours to have such an amazingly low number?

Incidentally Monty, FYI, Tokyo this month has had 1,783 cases, compared to the same time last month26,991, compared to 68,503 for August.

Japan, same comparison, (to 16th only, as numbers for today haven't been released yet). This month 11,519, cases, last month 173,398 and 236,412 cases.

Just wonder what next month's comparison will be.

Stay safe people of Japan.

Monty. Yes I have been keeping records since the pandemic started, and it only refers to Tokyo and Japan as a whole. No, I am not paranoid about it. I keep statistics on many things. It keeps my brain working LOL

I disagree with the comment by 'Reckless' (I think we may not need these daily updates anymore at these low rates.)

Sure, the numbers are a great credit to the prefecture, however, we shouldn't let our guard down just yet.

According to my records, both figures for Tokyo and Japan are the lowest since December last year, and I for one hope they keep getting lower with the vaccination rate continuing to get better also.

Discontinuing reporting these figures will just accelarate them again. Have a look at how the scramble crossing number are now, compared to 2 years ago. Almost back to normal, so to speak.

Keep it up Japan

OMG! Only 154 cases? That's the lowest number, (according to my records) since the 8th March. 12 days in a row under 1,000. I wonder if these are correct, really.

WOW! 11 days in a row with numbers under 1,000. My records now show this month Tokyo's numbers are at 30,957, compared to last month's 109,893 cases, a great drop indeed, but now they're talking about a 6th wave?

I am also wondering why the numbers for the under 20s or in the 30s age groups are being written here any more. Any ideas out there?

In the meantime, let's keep safe, don't be complacent and let's keep those numbers down.

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

WOW! This is amazing

At this time last month, Tokyo had 100,961 and of the total 318,929 cases in total, represented 31.7% of cases for the month since the pandemic. This month only 30,276 cases and if my figures are correct, (which I am pretty sure they are, that represents only 8.1% of all cases for the month. A great fall indeed. However the figures for the under 20s and 30s, (although not shown so far today still represent percentages in the 40s for Tokyo's daily cases up until last night.

Stay safe to you all.

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.

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

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!

Posted in: Tokyo reports 1,853 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 12,908 See in context

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

Posted in: Tokyo reports 2,362 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 16,012 See in context

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.

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

-6 ( +5 / -11 )

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.

Rant over
