I want people to know the implications of not wearing a mask or social distancing

Brian, the CDC has just dropped the masking and social distancing guidance.

They realize covid is here to stay.

Yesterday I posted the latest govt stats for corona hospitalizations as of Wed:

https://www.mhlw.go.jp/stf/seisakunitsuite/newpage_00023.html

1.8 million active cases(hospitalizations)

55,000 in hosp/hotels-120,000 available beds

Severe cases at 31% occupancy

1.4 million of theses patients at home.

One poster refuses to accept this so here is a story from his favorite website :

https://mainichi.jp/articles/20220807/ddm/041/040/037000c

“1.43 million people at home recuperation”

80% of your hospitalizations are at home. You know that. Stop pushing a false narrative.

25,000 patients in hospital

29,000 patients in hotels

121,000 total beds available in hospital/hotels

There are not 1,600,000 hospitalizations as some have claimed.

Not that I'm disputing you @SamuraiJack but in your numbers where are the other 240,000 people in the 1.4mil active cases that aren't at home, a hotel or in hospital?

@Pickle,

There is a group of 241,000 people. The note below the category states:

“The number of people who do not correspond to(hosp/hotel/home) at the time of the survey and are in the process of adjusting their medical treatment destination”.

Quote from the mainichi newspaper:

“There are 241,745 people who have not decided on a place to recuperate and are still in the process of adjusting their place of recuperation. Of these, 2,069 were in need of hospitalization but had not yet been accepted.”

Mr McCarthy,

You are wrong again. As of Wednesday, 34,000 in hospitals and hotels. Over 330,000

positive cases at home. You are pushing a false narrative.

Posted in: Japan reports 97,788 coronavirus cases See in context

Steven , your using old data. New data is:

Change from previous day infections +97,788

Hospitalizations 453,873

Change from previous day +69,857

So, by your math (97788-69857)=27,932.

28,000 people were sent home to recuperate and 69,857 were hospitalized.

74% hospitalization rate. Have I got that right?

Yubaru,

The stats you refer to are the true hospitalization rates-those in hospital. Other posters say 394,000 people are in hospital. Those stats are active cases and are published once a week to show the number in hospital, in hotels and those at home. Your hospitalizations are correct. Overall hospitalizations (active cases) are out tomorrow.

Yubaru,

How is my post Tokyo centric? The ministry of health publishes the national statistics once a week. Next update is tomorrow. Chill.

Ian,

you are correct. Actual hospitalization data is only published once a week. We will find out the true numbers tomorrow. Some zany people keep insisting active cases are the same as hospitalizations. 45% a few days ago. Oh my! Last week 75% oh hospitalization cases were at home with cough.

Steven McCarthy,

"We had a total 94,466 new cases reported nationwide yesterday, and newly-infected patients have increased by 2.14-fold compared to the last week, and we are seeing a rapid expansion," chief cabinet secretary Hirokazu Matsuno told a news conference.

But he said hospital bed usage remained low, as did the number of serious cases and deaths.

Yet, you tell us the hospitals are full and the medical system is near collapse. You continue to push a false narrative.

Yes, Nihon Tora

you and I know this but we are on a quest to find the one true document. Can you help us?

@vendingmachine,

You haven’t found it yet. The gov has a definition listed for “inpatients”.

Can you find it. It lists “inpatients” as those requiring treatment in a hospital, hotel ot at home. Your next question should be how many are listed under each category. A pdf is posted once a week and I’m looking at it. Keep searching. You haven’t found it yet.

Peter W,

don’t listen to Mr Mccathy, you are well aware all tourists require a group tour to visit Japan.

He also would have you believe there are 157,000+ people in hospital. Of course that is false because he didn’t bother to read the fine print on the Ministry of health and wefare website:

copy/paste:

The number of case-patients who require inpatient care is calculated by summing the following numbers of case-patients, published by each jurisdiction: those currently hospitalized (includes those in the process of being hospitalized), receiving care at a dedicated facility, or receiving treatment at home.

So all patients at home receiving Tylenol are included.

Current hospitalizations are approx. 20% of 50,000

available beds.
