Anecdotally, nobody in my circles - personally or professionally (in Japan) had had it...until a few days ago.

As for me, I am not in the official figures - my own Lateral Flow test kit was used. 39.5 degrees body temperature last night was not fun, nor were the other symptoms.

Take care all. It's still here.

I ll wait until 23 August, a little bit after the Obon holiday. to formulate my ideas as to where this stubborn virus is at. Chance for the returning. travelers who are concerned about it to get tested.

Suitable number of prank calls to an emergency number in some countries. His kind of humor?

@Jim (first comment)

In what way is 5000 (or any number) a "physiological" number, maybe it is a different word you are thinking of...

(maybe check "physiological" in a dictionary...?)

I expressed shock yesterday, I am less shocked today - have the floodgates opened? Let us hope testing gets easier - I got a load of test kits mailed from family overseas, people get them free from pharmacies/chemists/drugstores...

At least the number of Covid deaths has been lower (though there is always a time lag...)

Cripes, what a low number of tests (re the weekend factor, see my comment yesterday)!

@Reckless

Yep my UK PCR (required to re-enter Japan) cost me 22000yen, and the "Special" Skyliner plus "Special" taxi cost me 20000yen. Now UK requires one as well to enter (I did not need it)...

However, Japan 3 day hotel isolation, 3 meals a day and 2 tests are (were?) free and the flight was reasonable (with no change booking fees). The airline blocked middle seats of three, too and hygiene kit and shield free...

Keep checking in to post from Florida!

Slightly fewer comments early on, I understand it.

Two new slants for me;

We "accept" - well maybe acknowledge - lower testing numbers on weekends here, but WHY are the testing numbers lower? There is, we are told, a pandemic, should not testing be expanded to take account of people's availability to be tested? If it is 10,000 Tokyo tests on a weekday (whether too low or about right, immaterial to my point), why not maintain those numbers on a weekend?

Looking at the (Tokyo) numbers today, I have been expecting a higher male to female ratio. Other posters?

I have finished isolation now and have to say, was reassured having had two tests in the U.K and two on my return (compulsory and free).

Keep the comments going all, even on "quieter" days!

Didou,

I think this is one of those "holding" days, difficult to define a trend - unless we see some outlier in the non-Tokyo-to figures a few hours hence

At least the number of tests was higher, still short of the figures Koike was spouting last year.

There is a balance, but whichever way you slice it, testing numbers are too low.

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

Testing rates per country toward the right of the chart.

In absolute cases, you will see Japan at 40, I think...

Could almost copy and paste comment from yesterday

Pathetic number of tests, even though a National Holiday (January 11)

Alarmingly high ratio of positive tests

Tomorrow...more tests (weekday testing from January 12), I shudder in apprehension...

@theResident. Yep, correct, took a free Lateral Flow test with my parents in NW England early on the day of arrival in the U.K, free and no fuss, so soon we knew our "bubble" (UK government word, not mine, folks) was negative. Same day did the PCR test (GBP150) to back that up and get me back on the plane to my little home and (Zoom) job in Tokyo.

Folks, if the test is cheap and available in Tokyo - get it! (But do not risk catching the 'rona in the line/queue!)
