Japan's COVID-19 cases look "really good" on paper but today I read they got over 50 new cases. That's a rather big chunk, and considering how dense Japan is, it seems unlikely the numbers are really as low as they look. I worry about them still airing movies at a time like this.

Kenji Shibuya, a professor at King’s College London and a former chief of health policy at the World Health Organization, sees two possibilities: that Japan has contained the spread by focusing on outbreak clusters, or that there are outbreaks yet to be found.

“Both are reasonable, but my guess is that Japan is about to see the explosion and will inevitably shift from containment to delay-the-peak phase very soon,” he said. “The number of tests is increasing, but not enough.”


I think I said this a Violet Evergarden post, but anyway I just fear for them. They have motive (Olympics) to try and make the numbers look lower than they really are. I hope they really have contained it, though. That would be an awesome miracle.
