These little test groups will need to be vaccinated, but when tourism is open for more people and a bit more lax they’ll drop the requirement mark my words. I doubt it’ll be too much longer either, is obvious these little groups are just for show.

There is no country in the world that has 339,593 people in hospital for covid. 339,593 currently have a positive PCR in Japan and are being treated for covid.

Steven, you have completely misunderstood everything once again to fit your narrative and at this point and simply posting whatever you see fit. But it’s fine really, because everyone knows you’re wrong and several people have provided evidence. It’s almost like you want Japan to collapse and it’s disturbing.

Seek help.

@Yubaru, ah, then we must assume everything has been falsified and is a lie and therefore I stopped reading your post because I cannot trust the data. Have a nice evening!

@Thomas, easy! Firstly they wake up feeling totally fine, and then call into work and explain they may have covid so they need the day off to test to be sure, then they request additional days for isolation until they get the result, meanwhile they play PlayStation 5 at home in their pyjamas, then they get their clear result and feel happy in the knowledge they did the right thing even though they never felt sick in the first place.

Anyway, I hope you are well.

Very :D Golden Week was kind to me.

@divinda, yes, because people without covid usually don’t get tested for covid. It’s not rocket science.

The link in this article clearly states there are 1145 people in hospital with covid in Tokyo, out of an available 7229 beds, which is a capacity of 15.8%. Again, stated in this article, the number of severe cases in hospital is 3. The nationwide figure is 134.

As Tokyo is rightly not a country, there are apparently (according to other posters) 326,555 people outside of Tokyo in hospital right now which is minus Tokyo’s number (again, as stated in this article with a link for evidence).

A quick Google search shows the true figure of nationwide hospitalisation for Japan to be 9000, which is a huge difference to the 328,000 others like to claim when in fact this figure has been misunderstood to mean something it is not unfortunately. I suggest other posters learn some Japanese to be able to read factual evidence, or slow down before throwing figures out there to fit their own personal and patently false narrative.

But weren’t the cases supposed to be over 10,000 a day now because of the selfish golden week travellers?

*Monday reported 2,377 new coronavirus cases, down 971 from Sunday and down 634 from last Monday.*

But weren’t people supposedly dying all over the place in hospitals and at home because of their severe covid case?

*severe symptoms in Tokyo is three, down one from Sunday*

But isn’t the national healthcare system under strain and going to collapse due to all the severe cases?

*nationwide figure is 134, down five from Sunday.*

Oh, hmm…

Speedy recovery to the three (3) people with severe symptoms in my home

pref of 14,000,000.

@painkiller, there is a wonderful section in Japan’s constitution about protecting personal freedoms and rights that prohibits Japan from enacting a lockdown - you can wish all you want, but it is unconstitutional and can never, ever happen. :)

down 310 from Friday and down 10 from last Saturday.

The number of infected people hospitalized with severe symptoms in Tokyo is four, health officials said. The nationwide figure is 153, down three from Friday

Down, down, down, down - very cool. Wishing a speedy recovery to those four people in my home pref of 14mil.

The two men were dressed in workmen’s clothes and wore white face masks.

Reads like a horror movie, creepy. Wonder what the motive was since they didn’t take anything? Not a very well planned out robbery if that’s what it was - poor guy.

@Stonesode, plenty of people here would love to see Japan follow in the steps of China and North Korea and enact sakoku forever, it’s very disturbing.

The number of infected people hospitalized with severe symptoms in Tokyo is six, down two from Wednesday, health officials said. The nationwide figure is 159, down four from Wednesday.

Great to hear, I wonder if Tokyo will reach 0 soon?

Honestly, stop trying to take away the identity of half black women. She is Japanese regardless of the path her mother chose to take her to the states.

@Fighto, yep. People saying she’s not Japanese, she’s too emotional, can’t do this, can’t do that, grand slam champion but can’t be a role model. Ok boomers.

I wish her luck with her new venture however, I wish they would stop calling her Japanese; she's a rather pleasant young American lady who can play a mean game of tennis and happens to have one Japanese parent.

Uhh, she was born in Japan to a Japanese mother. That makes her Japanese. Or do we go about calling all half kids here not Japanese?

Good for her! Ignore the angry old boomers who try to tell you how to react and not others how to act. Best of luck Osaka.

It’s ok @BertieWooster, you don’t need to apologise or feel bad for not dying when catching an airborne virus. Glad your symptoms are mild, mine were too - rest up.

Some time ago, I saw a video of the flute players in an orchestra playing the instruments through a small hole in the mask. It wasn't a joke

The funniest one I saw was two people in a restaurant who cut a slit in their mask to put their fork through to eat while still wearing it.

We should watch what happens with NZ first

Why watch NZ? Rest of the world has already done and guess what? They’re fine. My family is here, but I was happiest abroad earlier this year because those countries had already gotten back to normalcy and classed it as endemic - i.e., no one cares. Japan will get there eventually, and we’re beginning to see the signs. The inevitable tourists are coming, lol.

@Rodney, cool, I’ve had covid as well and it was a big fat nothing. Influenza was worse. I also agree there is no point in a quarantine and track in the slightest either - I just wouldn’t put it past Japan to try it lol.

@theResident, very true! But we’re talking about tourists here. What’s the bet they want to enforce quarantine for them? Who knows really, but a way to kill the idea before it begins would be that! I mean a supervised tour like North Korea isn’t that much better either hahah.
