*Graph of the number of newly infected people in Japan as of yesterday

(* This bar graph is up to the previous day, so today’s red bar (handwritten) is on the far right, but it’s about this …)


(*”Since the graph shows only the numbers up to the previous day, I handwritten the rightmost bar, but this is about it!”)

(*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, it seems that some people involved in the Games went out without permission for sightseeing in the Olympic Village

There are two players, including a Georgia men’s judo silver medalist (defeated by Hifumi Abe) …



I wonder if they had already finished the competition and met with tourists or friends before returning…?
But now it’s no good …


Even so, the Japanese government is really useless …!
There was so much criticism about the Olympics, so it shouldn’t have happened like this …


Well … maybe that’s why the Japanese government doesn’t care so much about the infection situation …!



By the way, there was news about the number of people in the city of Tokyo on Friday, but

 it was “compared to the average of weekdays during the third state of emergency”, so the point is “compared to the previous weekday”, but the data was as follows!


Prefecture Daytime Nighttime
Shibuya Crossing (Tokyo) 18% increase 13% increase
Tokyo Sta (Tokyo) 2% increase 8% increase
Omiya Sta (Saitama) 37% increase 98% increase
Chiba Sta (Chiba) 41% increase 122% increase
Yokohama Sta (Kanagawa) 3% increase 36% increase
Umeda Sta(Osaka) 3% increase 13% increase
Okinawa Prefectural Office (Okinawa / Naha) 138% increase 50% increase

(*Comparison with 1 week ago except in Tokyo)


The number of people is increasing everywhere …!


By the way, there is also such data …

It seems that the vaccination rate for elderly people aged 65 and over who have “completed vaccination twice” nationwide is currently 74.53% …!


If there was a world line where only people over 65 could live, Japan’s COVID-19 would be over …!
(What kind of world line is it … lol)


By the way, in Tokyo, I made a graph on Twitter yesterday and introduced it, but

↑it is true that the number of infections among elderly people in their 60s and above is terrifyingly small …! (Good meaning)


Neither the government nor the Tokyo Metropolitan Government are willing to take any measures…,
(Already in a state of being overwhelmed)


↑Tokyo Metropolitan Government executive “We are taking measures, but the momentum of Delta strains is stronger. Only vaccines have a solution.”


so I hope that vaccination will proceed at least as soon as possible …



By the way, the last topic of today is such anxious data …

The Ministry of Health of Israel, the country with the most advanced vaccination in the world, has announced the results of vaccination in its own country and the results of subsequent surveys!


It’s quite interesting, so I’ll summarize it easily!
By the way, please see it as a “reference value”!
(*Because there may be bias such as survey area and age)
(*Also, because the numerical values ​​are different from the research data published in the medical journal)


<Results of survey and analysis of vaccine effect by the Ministry of Health of Israel, the country with the most advanced vaccination in the world>

(* Vaccine used-Pfizer vaccine)

●Effect of preventing “deterioration until hospitalization” ― 88%
●Effect to prevent  serious illness ― 91%

●Infection prevention effect         ― 39%
●Effect of suppressing mild Symptomatology  ― 41%


●About infection prevention effect
・ People who were vaccinated in January   ― 16%
・ People who were vaccinated in February ― 44%
・ People who were vaccinated in March    ― 67%
・ People who were vaccinated in April     ― 75%
→The effect of preventing aggravation is 86% or more regardless of the vaccination time. 


↑ Although it is just “statistical data in Israel”, it seems to be the following situation in summary.
“The more time passes after vaccination, the less effective it becomes.”
“Although it is much more effective in preventing aggravation, it is not enough to be hospitalized, but when infected, about one in two people will have a rather painful symptom.”


So … in a general sense, is it about the same as influenza after vaccination?


Only after vaccination, it may become
× “Ordinary cold”
○”Ordinary influenza”



Hmm … Israeli data …
If this is true, I’m pretty scared …!





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…




Saitama City will hold a secret fireworks display!

“The date and time and place are secret !!!”
“Don’t come see me !!!”




What do you mean? ?? ?? lol


… Apparently, fireworks will be launched in several places in the city for about 5 minutes each to publish the recordings of fireworks on youtube and TV!


↑↑ I made it bigger by clicking! lol



Personally, “sound” is also important for fireworks, so I wonder if they will make “sound” according to the broadcast time … lol






Please be careful when you go out!
