Shall we compare mythologies
Tokyo reported 501 new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, a worrying rise from the 440 cases logged last week and the 487 on June 2 and the first time above 500 in nearly two weeks.
…The capital’s average daily tally of new cases in the week to Wednesday stood at 384.6, compared with 401.6 a week earlier. The number of severely ill patients under the metropolitan government’s criteria, meanwhile, came to 45, the same as the previous day. The capital also confirmed 12 coronavirus-linked deaths.
While noting the falling number of infections, the advisory panel also said strong concerns remain about new cases possibly bouncing back in Tokyo and other parts of the country amid a rise in the number of people returning to entertainment districts.
…Ten prefectures, including Tokyo, are now under the government’s coronavirus state of emergency, while five others are under quasi-emergency measures. Both designations are currently set to expire on Sunday.
Ireland news today:
A further 320 new cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed by the National Public Health Emergency Team (Nphet).
Maybe it’s not like for like, well it’s not obviously, since Tokyo is somewhat over double Irelands population, but the Tokyo greater area is over 7 times the population of Ireland and yet, they only have 181 more “new cases” than the Republic of Provid.
Japan has approx. 25 times the population of Ireland in total.
As of 2021, the prefecture has an estimated population of 13,960,236. The Greater Tokyo Area is the most populous metropolitan area in the world, with more than 37.393 million residents as of 2020.
Notably not one mention of any injection in that JT article and here is the kicker.
Let the magical sink in.
