Even at the peak of the last wave, Japan has a infection rate low compared to western countries where most restrictions are down. But here in Japan, with this low rate :

no way to drink alcohol in restaurants

no way to eat after 8pm in restaurants

14 day quarantine when coming back from overseas even with fully vaccination and 2 negative PCR tests (one before boarding, one after arriving)

And speaking of democracy, I do not think it's a word valid here seeing how political world is.

This must be the lowest daily figure for some time. Numbers are falling all around the country. Well done Japan. Just shows how successful the vaccination program has been.

Guess what ? Tomorrow will be the lowest for sure. Around 400.

Both the Australians and the US are Pacific powers and their concerns are right in their faces. Unlike France.

Are you aware that France is present in all oceans ? There are French territories in Pacific Ocean (French Polynesia, New Caledonia, Wallis and Futuna), Indian Ocean (Reunion Island, Mayotte), Atlantic Ocean (Guadeloupe, Martinique, French Guyana, Saint Barthelemy, Saint Martin) and even in North America (Saint Pierre and Miquelon). So France is a power in the Indian-Pacific and has interest too.

Healthy Japanese kids definitely do not need them. In the US, they could be of some benefit if they keep on ignoring their childhood obesity problem.

For sure, they are no obese kids in Japan, because this country is so unique.

For many many days, the number of infections in Tokyo is down by 60% compared to the day of the previous week, amazing Tokyo.

Let's celebrate the end of the Covid19 disease in Japan, a very unique country on planet Earth.

On October 1st, let's drink alcohol and eat after 8pm.

LDP will have a new minister.

Japanese are going to be vaccinated for end of October/beginning of November.

What a wonderful future we can see.

Let's enjoy life. Freedom is back !

Its not about random testing, its about making testing available for people who want or need it. The testing system they have now is clearly designed to make it as difficult as possible to get tested as a deliberate way of limiting the number of tests done. Its outrageous.

Also, its not just the sick who need testing, people who may have been exposed and want to know if they are infected should have access too.

Exactly. And people who does not (want to) understand that and simply hopeless.

I would refuse to be randomly tested just because people want to balance stat numbers.

Test the sick and not the healthy.

No country is making random tests, what are you talking about ?

@Zoroto

I agree, with so low testing, Japan does not know the real situation. Even with the medical system being out of limit, they do not care at all for real prevention. Nothing is set up to deal with the next wave, poor country leadership.

... but as always I ask for the test count.

Does it really matter ?

The positivity rate is between 12 and 13% with around 10,000 daily tests (average on a week).

what do you mean? You do know that vaccinated are more likely to catch Covid right? Check out the Israeli study.

Thank you for your expertise regarding the Covid. Please explain me why the situation in Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, etc is fine ? Those are countries with 70% of fully vaccinated people.

Humanity cares only for itself and not for the planet. With the ever-increasing population and the ever-increasing need for energy, the Earth is gradually being stripped and its climate is changing far too quickly. Humanity thinks only in terms of consumption. And those who run humanity will do nothing to reverse what is happening. Sad fate ...

With the 5th wave in the waning phase, there is nothing surprising in the numbers. We can only rejoice.

So what next? What is the incompetent national government's wonderful plan to bring the next wave under control?

So far, the ingenuity of the LDP wankers has been to open oxygen stations and bankrupt izakaya, bars and other evening restaurants.

And let's not talk about the closed borders to prevent the virus from entering when it has already taken hold at the national level. Tourism players are also adrift.

What a bunch of suckers these leading politicians.

Europe broke down last year but since this summer, post-covid normality is gradually settling in.

Life will never come back as before, that's for sure. Humanity must adapt to viruses. Just as it will have to deal with climate change.

Japan has no plan to deal with the pandemic at short, middle or long term, that's amazing to see the continual chaos with the political leaders.

Many western countries in the world have been hit severely by the 2 first waves but now, these countries have plans to deal with the recurring waves of the pandemic. They have learned from their mistakes and ignorance.

Nobody knows how many will have it but it has been exaggerated by many in media and many posters here to be a terrible debilitating outcome. However in the majority of cases there are just short term minor issues such as loss of smell, insomnia etc. Most are gone in weeks or a couple of months.

I had no idea that the documents compiled by the national health institution in my homeland regarding the long effects of covid based on medical reports from hospitals and doctors who follow patients were in fact big lies to scare the public . I imagine you are an expert in the field.

I have never stated that Long Covid does not exist I merely stated it is over exaggerated as most things have been by much of the media and those that fall for their fear mongering.

Explain what means 'over exaggerated' for you ? What is the percentage of covid patients developing long lasting effects ?

Long Covid is another scare tactic to induce fear about a problem that will nit occur.

You really like to lie, don't you. Long Covid is not a myth, unfortunately. This has been reported by many countries (at least in Europe and North America) . But of course, you think this is a conspiracy, just because you do not want it, you just deny the reality.

If Japan do not want to publish any report of it, that will not be a surprise at all.

16 days in a row lower figures than the week before yet we have people saying the trend is upwards. Also the number crunchers are claiming deceit, I don’t get it.

Be pleased, it’s under control and numbers are falling. Not too long until normality resumes.

Yes, the peak of the wave is behind us, this is good.

But I totally disagree when you say it's under control. Do you really think the Japanese Government has something to do with this ?

For crying out loud, make more beds available for covid patients then and let us and businesses get on with it. This is beyond ridiculous.

More beds for a highly infectious disease, not that easy, you need human and material resources.

Making less people infected is also effective.
