*From the website of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare

*Currently, Japan is refusing to enter from India, Nepal, and Pakistan in principle as a countermeasure against Indian variant stain.


*Since the number of new infections in Tokyo seems to be almost the number of the previous day,

(Because the deadline for the number of new infections on the day is from 9:00 am the day before to 9:00 am on the day)





And also today, I will summarize some prefectures that have a high number of infected people, not just in the Tokyo area.

By the way, yesterday Saturday, the number of newly infected people in Tokyo reached about 1,500, but more than 800 of them said that the infection route was unknown, which is a really abnormal situation…




Next week, from Thursday, July 22nd to Sunday, July 25th, there will be four consecutive holidays, but I can’t imagine how much the number of infected people will increase …!


(Even yesterday, which is a normal Saturday that is not a consecutive holiday, is like “this” … ↓)

(Around 15:00 on July 17th, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)


By the way, for the four consecutive holidays next week, the governor of Tokyo, Koike, has already put out the usual “deadly weapon” for infectious disease control …!

“Until the vaccine is distributed, we must prevent the spread of the infection.”
She said that she called for refraining from going out unnecessarily


It was! Meaningless “call”!


The government and Governor Koike are no longer hiding, saying, “I just expect the vaccine!”

It seems that no additional measures will be taken with “waiting for vaccine” as it is, but I feel that it seems that this time the number of infected people will increase so much abnormally as we can’t stand it without measures…


(Last week’s infection situation in Tokyo ↓)


(Worst week ever = New Year’s day in January of this year)


↑The “third wave” of the year-end and New Year holidays overlapped with the “low season” when the movement of people at the beginning of the new year decreased, so the infection subsided well,  but this time from here to the full-scale summer.
The time when people’s movements become active …


Well, what will happen … I only have a bad feeling.



“There is a welcome party for President Bach of the Olympic Committee.”
↑ A flood of criticism from the public!


…… I don’t care about that, so please manage the spread of the infection now! (Sorrowful cry)

…… It’s the state like that … (dry laugh)


By the way, regarding the Olympics,

infected people were found in the Olympic Villages around the world, and it seems that there will be a total of 15 people.
(1 in Hokkaido, 1 in Miyagi, 1 in Ibaraki, 1 in Saitama, 2 in Chiba, 9 in Tokyo)
(7 outsourced staff, 2 media, 6 people involved in the tournament)

The result of the “screening test”, but …
①PCR tests before entering the Olympic Village
②They are actually testing every day before entering the Olympic Village
① and ② are still good, but
③When the government selected and tested some of the people who went in and out of the Olympic Village, there were so many infected people.
There is a possibility of ③, so I wanted the reporter to write more details …



By the way, from today’s Sunday, we have already entered the “week when the Olympics start & there are 4 consecutive holidays”, but what will happen to the infection situation …
Please be careful when you go out as much as possible …! (Seriously)





And this article↓


How long time the materials such as paper, cloth, plastic, etc. need to eliminating the risk when coronavirus is attached, and how effective disinfection is.
If you are interested, please take a look!


Also, for “Does the vaccine work for mutant strains?”, See this table ↓

イギリス株やインド株にもワクチンは“90%以上有効”  – Youtube(MBS news)
ファイザー製ワクチン ブラジル株に効果期待 東大らのグループ – NHK

Is the vaccine effective against mutant strains? (*unit : %)
Number of vaccinations Conventional  British South african Brazilian California  NY Indian  Unknown 
Once 57 18 21 16 39 55 37 34
Twice 99 94 90 94 97 98 97 97





And here’s a trial calculation of how many people in Japan are actually receiving medical treatment.




(If it is exactly as announced)

For those who are undergoing medical treatment nationwide are…

these days it’s been declining significantly on most days, but…




Britain is in the midst of a large-scale “human experimentation” …
(The infection is “super-spreading”, but due to the vaccine, there are few deaths, so all restrictions such as events have been lifted and no guard is being carried out.)

It seems that the number of infected people per day has exceeded 50,000 …




↑The number of infected people is steadily approaching the record high of 67,000 …


The “number of deaths” that is the basis of mitigation is also …




↑Situation where there are signs of a slight increase …



The Japanese government and the Tokyo metropolitan government are in a state of “I have no intention of taking additional measures now in anticipation of a vaccine effect”, but somehow they smell like they want to imitate England, I hope they see the above situation and feel a sense of crisis and take appropriate measures …!






Please be careful when you go out!
