Obesity rate and healthy population clearly helping out. Interesting that even an aged population can do quite well if they're in good health.

I think covid highlights an obesity problem, not a novel coronavirus problem. Japanese are among the healthiest in the world. Imagine if our leaders started a health campaign instead of a mask campaign?

Seriously, it is impossible to overstate the importance of this paper. It and the 40-cycle testing put all the pieces together.

7/ "If this [herd immunity] were true, then the remarkably low mortality related to COVID-19 should also be examined. Much like our cohort which had no reported hospitalizations, clinical severity in Tokyo was low [31 deaths, 14 million people]." JFC. It was Earth all along.

4/ In other words, if you test broadly and rapidly during an outbreak, you will find that a huge fraction of the population has been exposed/infected and is asymptomatic (we have seen this from PCR testing in settings like aircraft carriers, prisons, etc)...

3/ The researchers wrote: "This suggests that serological testing may significantly underestimate past COVID-19 infections, particularly when applied to an asymptomatic population."

2/ BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE: Many IgM antibody tests rapidly reverted to negative after being positive. So point-in-time antibody testing almost certainly UNDERESTIMATES exposure (which may be why it is so hard to get over 20% antibody positives in broad population studies)...

1/ INCREDIBLE STUDY: 615 adults in Tokyo were prospectively recruited to take Sars-Cov-2 antibody tests. When the study began 6% had antibodies, indicating exposure. By mid-summer 47% did. Half the population. Not one person was hospitalized or died...

No the second bump is majority wet food supply chain into 50 counties. It was overflow from a separate epidemic. It had nothing to do with opening up.

According to a preprint, Tokyo reached 46% AB-Seroprevalence. Remember, no Excess deaths in Japan.

No, we need to accept that 3 million Americans will die this year and we can't keep everyone alive forever no matter how hard we try - And that our bizarre fixation on making every decision as if deaths are the only societal outcome that matters is profoundly wrong.

Yes, and we will be making sure that neither deaths during this seasonal rise, nor Lockdown Deaths, are laundered into Covid deaths.

Makes huge sense. Quick calculations on HPSC data from Irelands puts of confirmed cases since beginning of Sept. ~ Hospitalizations @ 2.9% ~ ICU admissions @ 0.3% ~ CFR 0.4% ~ all deaths had underlying conditions ~ nobody <55 admitted to ICU in Sept.

I have never done anything like this in my life. I’ve played no role in politics beyond voting. I didn’t pick this fight. Merely the uncovering in recent days of the extent of false positives in community testing of the mostly-well means those centrally involved in this can no...
