I read an article today about, which city in Australia? Was it Sidney? Yes, here is is:

A Delta outbreak which began in June has produced nearly 3,000 infections and led to nine deaths.

I had to chuckle because Tokyo is getting over 3,000 cases every day now, and nobody gives a shit for the most part. Life goes on as normal and, oh yeah, they're hosting the Olympics.

These numbers are becoming meaningless. The hospitalization and death counts are very low. We're getting mixed messages. Is the Delta strain more or less deadly? Do the vaccines work or not?

We have over 3,000 cases a day in Tokyo, but life goes on as normal, so how bad can that be? And those are just the tested cases, which means the real numbers in Tokyo are, what, double that? Triple? Quadruple?

And yet, it isn't killing many people. So what's going on?
