*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)

By the way, the infection situation in Japan is getting worse “day by day”




Still, there seems to be no sign that the number of people in the city will decrease …


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


In Tokyo today,

it seems that a “heat stroke warning alert” was issued, but it makes me want to say “I’ll give you a different alert (infection alert) instead of that alert!” (Angry) … !! Lol


As actual data,

Compared to Saturdays and Sundays of the third state of emergency (April 25th to June 20th), the number of people in the city has increased tremendously as shown below …!

①Tokyo / Shibuya scramble intersection
  Daytime - 1.32 times
  Nighttime - 1.40 times
②Around Osaka / Umeda Station
  Daytime ― 2.40 times
  Nighttime - 2.73 times



It seems that the vaccine will come in 220 million times by the end of September, but…

I feel that “What !? The infection will continue to spread to that extent …? Then, by that day, the number of infected people per day will be tens of thousands …”



By the way, the government thinks that it is okay for the average number of infected people in Tokyo to reach 2400 per week (not the number of infected people on the MAX day of the week !?) …!

By the way of by the way (←lol), this number of “2400 people” was estimated at the monitoring meeting in Tokyo, “If the infection spreads at this pace, the average weekly number will reach 2400 people on August 11th.”

So … I wonder if the maximum for that week will be around 4000 or 5000 …?



As like that, the current situation in Japan seems to be dangerous …!



The Tokyo Olympics are about to be held this weekend, but …

It seems that Taiwanese genius IT minister, Audrey Tang, has also canceled his visit to Japan…



Also, it seems to be the first time in the Olympic Village, but it seems that two new infections have been found …!

It seems that the South African soccer team entered the country on the 17th, and as of the 18th yesterday, a total of 3 people have been infected …


The PCR test system seems to be working well …



Even in such a situation, as an athlete, it seems that he wants to hold an event with an audience, but …

While understanding that medical professionals are doing their best,
and also understanding that they are in a position to thank the Olympics as much as possible,
he said that “I’m glad to have audience as a player,” and also “I want Prime Minister Suga to consider holding the event with spectators again” …


I understand his feelings, but I think it would be great if he could think about his “understanding” again and think more seriously about his “life-threatening infection situation” …



This week has already begun, and the four consecutive holidays and the Olympics are getting closer and closer, but I hope this summer will be convincing after everyone is done …





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…




And even in Israel, where vaccination is the most advanced in the world

the number of infected people per day seems to have exceeded 1000 for the first time in 4 months …!


It’s tempting to shout, “In Israel, the vaccination rate for people in their twenties and above should be over 80%, but why is that happening !?”, but
actually, about 40% of the recent infected people are teenagers.

The teenage vaccination rate in Israel is still around 30% …

You can really see how important vaccines are …


(Israel infection status)



And even though there are 1000 people, it is like above in the graph …

After all Israel is amazing! Lol



Thanks to the talented Israeli government for getting the vaccine early!



What was the Japanese government doing during that time …?






Please be careful when you go out!
