Japan’s Cumulative COVID-19 Cases Set to Double in August at their Present Rate

Japan’s Cumulative COVID-19 Cases Set to Double Again by the end of August if Their Trajectory Does Not Change

Early this month, we reported how Japan had just about doubled their number of COVID-19 cases in the month of July. Today, on August 8, it appears that the country is on its way to doubling those numbers yet again, by the end of August, if they continue at the rate they’re going.

Last we spoke of this, Japan’s cumulative number of cases had jumped only several thousand from the beginning of May to the near end of June. Those numbers managed to nearly double from 18,723 on July 1 to 34,372 on July 31.

Now, at the end of the first week of the month, Japan had a total of 43,815 on August 7. A day later on August 8 that jumps up to 45,439.

The difference between July 31 and August 7 amounts to 9,443 confirmed cases.

Extend that by one day to the 8th of the month and it then amounts to 11,067.

The chart for the daily change in cases shows an upward trajectory, meaning the situation is getting worse.

At this rate the country should expect to have gotten as many 36,000 cases or more in the month of August putting its cumulative a double that at the end of July.
