<Summary of today’s “Major News Related to COVID-19 in Japan”>




Areas subject to “Emergency declaration” and “Priority measures such as prevention of spread”

State of emergency
Target area : Tokyo / Okinawa
Period: July 12 (Monday) -August 22

Priority measures such as prevention of spread
Target area : Saitama, Chiba, Kanagawa, Osaka
         (※Hokkaido, Aichi, Kyoto, Hyogo, Fukuoka are canceled)
Period: July 12 (Monday) -August 22

By the way, as I introduced yesterday, the target area of ​​the declaration of ↑ has changed like this …!


Areas subject to “Emergency declaration” and “Priority measures such as prevention of spread”

State of emergency
Target area : Tokyo / Okinawa
         (Addition) Saitama, Kanagawa, Chiba, Osaka

Priority measures such as prevention of spread
Target area :  (All areas up to now have been moved up to ↑)
(Addition) Hokkaido, Ishikawa, Hyogo, Kyoto, Fukuoka

●Period: August 2nd to August 31st

(*4府県“宣言”追加 5道府県“まん延防止”適用を決定 政府 – NHK)

(* Ibaraki Prefecture is also considering applying the state of emergency *nhk)


After all, as mentioned above
“Regions that have been priority measures such as spread prevention (= Saitama, Kanagawa, Chiba, Osaka)” have been moved up to the state of emergency, and 5 new areas have been added to the priority measures such as spread prevention … !!


This is … in other words …
“Priority measures such as prevention of spread were meaningless.”
“Since the infection is spreading in Tokyo and Okinawa, it doesn’t really make sense to declare an emergency, but there are no further measures, so there are no additional measures!”
, right!?


It seems that overseas media are also reporting that…

“it is doubtful whether it will be effective” …



In addition, it seems that the subcommittee on measures against the new coronavirus said, 

“We should consider legislation that will enable lockdown in the future.”


Rather, it should have been discussed in the Diet at the end of the first wave of last year …


By the way, Prime Minister Suga said …

“The lockdown technique is not familiar in Japan.”
He doesn’t even seem to talk …


And in the same article, Mr. Suga also said, “I will do my best with the determination that this declaration will be the last one” …!
No, you had to finish it the first time …





There is some hopeful topics, but … it feels like “(dry laugh)” …! Lol

The UK has no guard tactics (no measures or regulations!), but …






↑ Although the number of deaths is increasing (currently around 100 people every day), the number of infected people is starting to decrease …!


Why! ??
Even though they no longer have any countermeasures!??


… It ’s too strange, so I tried to find out the cause… ↓

↑It seems that both experts and the government are “unintelligible” … (dry laugh)


“The sunny days have continued and more outdoor activities have been taken.”
“School has entered summer vacation”

Although the possibility of the above is pointed out, the conclusion was that “we do not know the exact reason” … dry laugh

Obviously, the Japanese government is now aiming for a British-style “only vaccines will solve COVID-19, so no other measures will be taken!”, so it is good news, but… dry laugh




By the way, although the “state of emergency” has been extended and new areas have been added, the “decrease in the number of infected people after the declaration of emergency” has been merely “thanks to the off-season of Japanese society” was revealed in this “super-expansion of infection under declaration” …


① 1st time (May 2020) → Only overlapped during the off-season after “Golden Week Holidays”
② 2nd time (January 2021) → Only overlapped during the off-season after the New Year
③ 3rd time (April 2021) → Only overlapped during the off-season after”Golden Week Holidays”
④ 4th time (this time) → Summer vacation … The off-season is after September …


Currently, it is in a chicken race state of
“Government, Tokyo, where vaccines are not imported until the end of August, but there is no intention of doing anything else …!”


I’m horrified to think that I’ll spend a month with a really meaningless state of emergency until the end of August and continue to spread the infection …!
I hope that the number of infected people will break the hearts of politicians somewhere and start taking measures …!





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 ↓

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…




Regarding the Olympics, there is a little talk about “Olympic officials have gone out of the accommodation facility for COVID-19 patients!” …

The actual place is as follows
① They was dissatisfied with the positive judgment and tried to go out to undergo a re-examination.
② When I went out, they called a car dedicated to anti-virus measures.
   (A dedicated vehicle that can lower the internal air pressure to prevent virus spread)
③ They didn’t go out to play nor drinking, they went to a medical institution

The Olympics have been criticized in Japan for some reason, but athletes and related people have come to compete for their lives


Going out isn’t a compliment, but it makes me understand my feelings …


So far, Olympic athletes and officials were, “They haven’t been walking around the city, they just entered the country, and just going to play their works with isolation stay, and then go home. “


So, rather than the Olympics, I honestly think, “The government should crack down that the people to play around with the word Olympics, or to use the Olympics as an excuse to walk around “…






Please be careful when you go out!
