Ridiculously low testing and always a minimum 10% positive. Scary stuff. Imagine what the figure would be if they tested 100,000 a day as they should. To anyone who thinks it's under control: "Ya dreaming!!!!"

Yes, it's all been said before. The low testing numbers is a national disgrace. Queensland is testing more than 10,000 daily with next to zero positives while Tokyo (3 x the population) tests only 2,000 for 1,000 positives and some say that's OK. What a joke.

Ridiculously low testing numbers continue only to keep the Olympic flame flickering. Sorry to extinguish your hopes but it ain't gonna happen . Get fair dinkum and test like they do in Oz.

The actual situation is diabolical and no-one seems to realise. The testing numbers in Japan are ridiculously low and the rate of COVID positives is alarmingly high. Why are only 5,000 being tested every day? It needs to be 100,000+ daily. In Queensland Australia they're testing 10,000+ daily with only a dozen active cases. My company tests every staff member once a week and we all wear masks in the office. Japan is on the tip of an awful COVID positive iceberg.

The rate of COVID positive to the number tested is a whopping 25% but the testing rate of 5,000 a day ridiculously low. The true figure of DAILY COVID positive in Tokyo alone is easily over 100,000 as another reader suggested. Compare the testing in Australia - 101,000 in the last 24 hours for a total of 5 active cases. Why the hell Japan isn't dong more tests? How good is the contact tracing? The nightmare for Japan has only just begun.

The reality is far worse. Simply not enough testing. Are people afraid of testing positive due murahachibu mentality? The other problem is contact tracing. Does it even exist? This is going to get really really bad. Sorry folks but the Olympics will not happen.
