It's simple. Humans have not formed antibodies to this. And it causes pneumonia & lung damage. That's all you need to know.

ps. There is no vaccine for this virus either.

So now try to compare this to influenza.

The concern now is that we are being misled about the number of related deaths. To keep their rate low. They are only testing in Kabukicho and Ikebukuro and look at the results. The number 131 only constitutes those areas. Widespread testing in Tokyo will easily take it to 1,300 per day.

This government have constantly misled and played with the statistics. Avoided testing to keep the numbers down and have even attempted to say the numbers are not important.

I would not be surprised at all if the related deaths are being under reported.

Pierre, your table reflects the senior ages of those who died from Covid as well as the quality of hospital care. It has nothing to do with lockdown and you forgot that Japan and Hong Kong both went into 2 month lockdowns.

If 124 is only from Kabukicho/ Ikebukuro, imagine the number if testing was widespread! The reason why 70% are those in their twenties and thirties is because they are only testing those in their twenties and thirties!

Japan's infection rates remain far below many other countries

That's because other countries are more transparent and honest about their testing.

If this is not covered by health insurance it could cost you Y33,000 (current Tokyo rate).

Russell Lemasters - did they refuse your request to depart Japan? Or to arrive?

Posted in: Tokyo reports 107 new coronavirus cases on Thursday See in context

Avenger, the PCR is only covered if you are sick with a high fever and a dubious x-ray. If not you won't get as far as a PCR test. The point is if you actively want to take a test you will have to fork out Y33,000. So anyone who is asymptomatic and Covid positive will not know that because they won't pass the national health symptoms checks.

Chris Glen, if you are dead what is the point of economical survival? I have listened to horrific stories of Covid-19 survivors who struggle to walk to the shops.

Economic survival means nothing if, God forbid, you are on a ventilator in a hospital.

My job will probably go by the end of the year. But I would prefer not to catch this virus for which we have no vaccine and no antibodies. I hate to say it but I'd rather be unemployed.

And don't believe this governments lies about Kabukicho. It's an easy scapegoat with a moral point of view.

Do we seriously believe that only hostess and host clubs are attracting these new cases? Of course not. Normal bars and pubs and izakaya are just as likely to pass the virus. As well as our commute.

They allowed a couple of businessmen to bring Covid-19 from Wuhan city straight back home without strict quarantine, but they like to preach about Kabukicho and irresponsibility..

Posted in: Tokyo reports 107 new coronavirus cases on Thursday See in context

This is what happens by avoiding testing and saying numbers aren't important. They are avoiding testing and making it very difficult even if you actively want to test. The current cost for a PCR test in Tokyo is Y33,000. They are not covered under health insurance.

Disagree with the first post. You can multiply these numbers by 10.

But is COVID-19 worth the excessive hysteria it's getting?

Ask the survivors who have lasting damage to their lungs and health. Ask the families of all of those who died. There is no vaccine, and we do not have antibodies to this virus.

So is it racist now to point out that African heritage athletes dominate the Olympic 100M.? If an African-American or Jamaican wins the Olympic 100M then commentators should say how intelligently they ran.?

Posted in: Tokyo moves away from numerical targets to fight coronavirus See in context

I guessed the Tokyo number would be 60 yesterday. It was 54. Today I'm guessing 50. For the past 9 days or so it has been 50 or 55 or 60. These numbers make no sense and are obviously made up. A pandemic virus in a city will either rise or fall. Hovering between 50 to 60 over 9 days is not true - because one positive case creates multiple contagions. This government is making up these numbers.

Did the MOFA really say we are imprisoned here until at least the end of July.?

theResident - I really do back smith on this topic. It is double standards when Japanese businessmen are permitted to fly wherever, yet longterm businessmen in Japan with non-Japanese passports cannot. I am basically Japanese. Pay my taxes here. Yet I am treated like the afflicted because of my passport. Yet my next door neighbour can travel abroad on business.

Do we know if Japanese are even tested at the airport or quarantined?

I also accept the law of this country - but when the law is clearly unfair and dare I say it, racist, then we have a right to cry double standards.

almost - Abe does not want to commit to anything. They are not commenting. Not very helpful to you I know.

My opinion is that Japan are using immigration as an excuse for their Covid-19 failings, plus they want their government-connected trading companies to get an unfair advantage, plus they are trying to protect 2021 Olympics.

The major airlines and travel agents are government backed and are being asked to concentrate on domestic. Japan will be one of the last countries to make a plan for non-Japanese visa holders and for tourism.

This government is not considering relaxing anything for non-Japanese. Only for Japanese businessmen.

Last week, a chartered flight carrying mainly business people

'Mainly' business people.? Do you seriously think there were families going on their holidays.. Nope. It was all government-sponsored Japanese trading companies.

ナチ the answer is that there is no valid reason. It is based on passport cover.

I am essentially Japanese. Have lived here a long time. Commute and work in Japan. Have family here. Pay my taxes here and hold a long term visa. If I have a Japanese passport I can come in. If I have a non-Japanese passport I cannot.

It is not based on sense or medical or scientific reason. Work out what the reason is..

Ossan, they've cashed the cheques. Domestic revenue dwarfs tourist money. Have you noticed any moves on tourism? None. He is desperate for the Olympics investment not to be a white elephant so he wants to ban immigration due to Covid-19. As soon as a 2021 Olympics is successfully finished it will be back to normal tourist service.

Posted in: A Tour de France like no other See in context

The Team Ineos leadership is going to be so intriguing. Bernal, Thomas, AND Froome? I know that Bernal is the 'official' team leader, but he has two Tour champions from the past 3 years alongside him. The only reason Froome wasn't in pole position to win yellow last year was because of his injury. It's going to be interesting because competition between the three could self-destruct. Froome will be a major threat in the mountains and Thomas is also a major threat over the whole Tour.

It should be run without fans. They could have implemented a roadside spectator ban in the regions but to finish in Paris without spectators is impossible.

You have a good memory Jim.. Klopp won this title. Simple as that.

Klopp is a genius. Of all the players in that team only really Alisson, Van Dijk, and Salah are naturally world class. The likes of Mane, Henderson, Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Firmino etc have had their games raised by Klopp's enthusiasm and energy. He has taken those players and created a team that has won the Champions League, the Club World Cup, and now the title. City, Chelsea, and Man Utd have squads with better natural individual talent (and price) but they don't have Klopp as coach.
