There's something wrong in Japan about any animal could possibly be a pet.

I saw people with monkeys, otters, and a lot with endangered species at home.

Animal TV shows yelling "kawaï" at wild animals in a zoo or as pets are a disaster.

only hysteria I see about Covid in Japan is from foreigners moaning about how Japan should adopt the West’s policies, lol. Oh yeah, all those lockdowns worked a treat and millions still suffer daily whole here life is carefree

That's Bolsanoro's speech no ?

What seems hard to fathom for me is that if the numbers are being secretly hidden and this virus is indeed as deadly as claimed then why aren’t we seeing more deaths and full hospitals?

2 reasons :

part of the severe cases and deaths are not correctly reported (private clinics, isolated rural people, no post mortem tests ...).

severe cases and deaths are often linked to commorbities factors such as obesity or cholesterol. Thanks to its traditional diet, japanese people is less inclined to develop medical complications.

No, it’s a great photograph chosen, as you can read ‘safety first’ and the Olympic Rings left in the very background. Nice and clever...

In a way it means :

"Take care of yourself, don't count on the gov that wants to hold the Olympics at any cost".

Given that just about everyone in Japan wears a mask and yet numbers are still rising, at the very least it might make one question their effectiveness.

Most infections are around a meal or a drink. No mask there.

Of the respondents, 49.3 percent said the relay should be canceled in areas experiencing severe coronavirus infection numbers and 35.9 percent said it should be called off entirely.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 555 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 3,449 See in context

Just 555 positives in a city the size of Tokyo, great news

and even if was 2000 still should be great numbers cause 2000 over 14,000,000 is 0,000142857%

and if they were 20,000 still only 0,00142% zero comma zero zero one four two percent

555 infected on 1846 tested = 30,07%

14,000,000 x 30,07% = 4,209,800

It can be great, it can be bad ...

OK Tell us how?

There's no pharma factory in Australia ?

Love how the posters are not calling the numbers bogus, now the numbers are going up.

Oh, i still call them bogus regarding the low test numbers. We're only seeing the top part of the iceberg.

Asymptomatics or mild symptoms persons aren't tested as well as contact cases for tracking.

But the trend is interesting even on a sample of the infected population.

Rather you must take an average on a given period. Currently, the positivity rate in Tokyo is 4.3% calculated from 7-day moving average.

Agree but it's mainly to balance the raw cases number often considered here with any reference.

(btw 7-day moving average is always 2 days late to compare)

Glad to see many people being sensible and realising Covid is unlikely to effect them. Very grateful we don’t have the mass hysteria like the West where many more have died despite draconian rules and lockdowns

Where did you see mass hysteria ?

Oh, let me guess ... in some medias ?

Many died because social distancing isn't part of the western culture whereas it's a way of life in Japan.

On the other hand, you have to accept suicides, kodokushi and decline of the birth rate ...

Choose your side but there no perfect society.

Europe had strict lockdowns and now strict restrictions but the virus is still spreading. Why ?

Enough with Europe/USA comparisons.

Just check next door : South Korea / Taiwan.
