*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)

*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!”)

There is a lot of odor that the infection is unlikely to settle down this week,
but in Tokyo, the positive rate is currently 19.8% …!



↑It is calculated that 1 in 5 people who have been tested are infected …
It’s a ridiculous rate …!


By the way …
Tokyo is often criticized as “the number of tests is intentionally reduced!” …


(Right end of ↑ bar graph)


↑If the infection spreads properly, the number of tests will increase!



Is it good or bad …



And the topic changes, but …
There was such a picture on the net …!



↑Australian team is in Shimbashi! ??
I wondered, “Did they go to the comfort party?”, but… I found the original article! lol

They were taken to the Organizing Committee and just came to a private testing institute to test before returning to their home country … lol


Anyway …
The Organizing Committee conducts PCR tests every day in the Olympic Village, so it would be nice if the Organizing Committee could do the tests for returning to their home countries and the issuance of negative certificates …



Also, there are such topics that are discussed every time the infection spreads …

“Patients admitted to the hospital are limited to those who have become severely ill or who are at high risk of becoming severely ill.”
“Other patients are basically treated at home”

↑ The government seems to say this AGAIN


We saw it last August!


Last August, just at this time of last year, the peak of the second wave was rushing in, and even at that time, they said the same thing, “because medical care is tight” and “accommodation treatment is basic!”…



↑ At that time, we were still feeling hopeless with the number of infected people of “a little less than 500” Now we have 4000 people a day …



In the last article, I would like to introduce the number of deaths from vaccination with Pfizer and Moderna.


<Number of deaths from Pfizer and Moderna vaccination>

Number of deaths
Pfizer     ― 746 cases
Moderna  -   5 cases
(*February 17(Start date of vaccination) → July 16)


Experts analyze “663 deaths from Pfizer vaccine”
  ・Heart failure          ― 73 cases
  ・Ischemic heart disease   ― 67 cases
  ・Cardiopulmonary arrest  ― 43 cases
  ・Arrhythmia          ― 15 cases
  (*Others include cardiac death and cardiac arrest)


Although the number of deaths is overwhelmingly lower in Moderna, the Pfizer vaccine is often used for priority vaccination of the elderly, so it cannot be simply said that “Moderna is safer and more secure!”





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…




By the way, the Japanese media does not report at all, but it seems that the Washington Post in the United States posted such a picture on Twitter …!


↑Even though the government is requesting shortening of business hours, people are not wearing masks and it is crowded after 20:00 in IZAKAYA …


The tweet said, “Some people were seated a few minutes ago.”


It’s an embarrassing situation in Japan …
The Japanese media, who doesn’t make news unless it’s taken up by foreign media, is also crazy …


Hmm …






Please be careful when you go out!
