The number of infected people in Tokyo did not drop below 2000 even on Mondays …!
Somehow … I think there will be many infected people also this week …


For a moment, I was expecting a situation where “Last week was the end of the Golden Week holidays, so there were only a lot of them” …




Meanwhile… How about the amount of people in the city in Tokyo…↓

*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.

*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!”)









<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
         (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)






By the way, today is Monday, so the number of infected people was low “in recent days” …, but what kind of infection will this week, the second week after the holidays ?!


By the way, at the time of the second state of emergency and the third state of emergency,
the infection started to settle down “the second week after the holidays”
after the infection exploded “the next week after the holidays”.


(At the time of the second state of emergency)

(*”年末年始” = around the new year’s holidays)


(At the time of the third state of emergency)

(*”GW” = Golden Week holidays)


However, it can be said that both of these just overlapped well with “a quiet period when there are no events for a while” after the consecutive holidays, so I can not say anything …


This time … “Summer” and “summer vacation” will continue even after the holidays …
① It is safe for the time being if the infection has settled down from this week
②If the number of infections continues to increase this week, it will go straight to the bottom of hell.
As mentioned above, this week may be an important week …!


What will happen …


By the way, the following statement was issued at the “National Governors’ Association” consisting of governors from all over the country …!

“Consider lockdown (to the government)! ” (Angry)
「”(To the people) Please stop travel and homecoming over prefectures during the summer vacation!” (Angry)
If you really want to cross prefectures, do a PCR test in advance! ” (Angry)


It’s no wonder they say that …
Obviously, the virus is flowing to each prefecture from “the worst 10 areas in Japan with the cumulative number of infected people”, so it makes them want to get angry … (dry laugh)



By the way, as you may already know,

according to the US health authorities,
“Delta strain” seems to be as infectious as “chickenpox” …!


“Chickenpox” is… that!
A little kid gets from school or kindergarten and transfers to dad and mom!


If it’s as easy to get infected as that … well … it’s too scary!


By the way, according to the same internal data of the US health authorities, “people who have been vaccinated may spread the infection in the same way as those who have not been vaccinated” …!
The information is changing, and we don’t know which one.
“Once vaccinated, you won’t be able to pass on to others.”
“Even if you get vaccinated, it will be transmitted to people.”
There are reports of both, so I’d like them to be clear about it …!


Even so, this Delta stock, Prime Minister Suga, the Governor of Tokyo, and other politicians all say,

“The spread of infection in Japan will not stop because of the Delta stock.”,but…
is that really the case?




つ (here↓)

①Taiwan vaccination rate
(Statistics and Research Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccinations)

Completion of the first vaccination - approx. 30.8%
2nd vaccination completed - approx. 1.6%


つ (and here↓)

②Current infection status in Taiwan




By all means, it doesn’t seem that “the infection spreads because of the Delta strain” …




What is the difference between Taiwan and Japan …





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…




If I look closely at the usual “Tokyo Health and Welfare Bureau” site, I see something like this …


(* Orange frame is for stage 3 and red frame is for stage 4)
(Stage 4 = State of Emergency in Japan)
(I inserted English, but I’m sorry if it’s wrong!)


It is an “indicator for the country to judge the infection status”, but it seems that Tokyo has already shaken off the meter …!


The number of infected people and the number of medical treatment people are literally “The digits are different” …!



I saw something terrifying … I should have seen it …






Please be careful when you go out!
