*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)





*It seems that the above-mentioned Ibaraki Prefecture has issued a “prefecture-specific state of emergency” and requested the Japanese government to apply the declaration on August 3.
(*茨城県 独自の緊急事態宣言へ 国に宣言対象地域の追加要請も – NHK)




Nishimura, the minister in charge of economic revitalization, also said that, but …

Recently in Japan, the number of seriously ill people has not stopped increasing …
According to the article, “In the last 10 days, the number of people has increased by 300 to over 700.”
When you actually make a graph, it looks like this … ↓



↑ It’s true that the number is increasing at a steep angle …
The scary thing is that the peak is still ahead …


By the way, the number of deaths is currently in the form of a graph like this … ↓

(↑*There are some strange sticks, but the resasons are below)
①May 7th, which seems to have been recorded collectively after GW (*NHK)
②May 18 of “Corrected for 121 people in Hyogo prefecture” (*NHK)


And when I show the transition of the number of infected people nationwide in the same graph form, it looks like this … ↓


I have arranged three graphs now,
What you can see from the previous 4th wave …↓

①The peak number of infected people is from May 8th to 13th.
②The peak number of serious injuries is from May 26th to June 5th.
③The peak number of deaths is from May 25th to June 3rd.

Therefore, it can be seen that the number of deaths and the number of severely ill people will change 2-3 weeks after the change in the number of infected people …


The number of deaths in Japan has been low these days, and the government has been very cautious about it, but I’m wondering what the numbers are on August 16th (around the end of Obon) when three weeks after the outbreak of the fifth wave (currently) of infection on July 27…



… By the way, the extra analysis has become a little long today (dry laugh), so it’s easy to get two chunks of domestic and overseas news…


First domestic!

It seems that the largest cluster in Okinawa has ever occurred!
It seems that 140 people have been infected by August 3 yesterday in a cluster that occurred at a medical institution in Uruma City …
(129 out of 270 inpatients are infected, and the vaccination rate for inpatients is less than 10%)

The government will begin vaccination of AstraZeneca Vaccine in areas where a state of emergency has been declared!

Prefecture Amount(Times)
Tokyo 579500
Kanagawa 390600
Osaka 357900
Chiba 305600
Saitama 258700
Okinawa 58000

It is intended for “people who have already completed the first vaccination with the AstraZeneca vaccine” and “people who are allergic to the ingredients of other vaccines”, and “in principle, do not inoculate under the age of 40”!

The spread of Tottori infection does not stop …!
Double-digit number of infected people every day …

↑It seems that the close contacts can still chase …

Under such circumstances, Iwate seems to be busy selling and using “Go To Eat” premium meal tickets… (dry laugh)

↑Is there a large or small number of infected people, about 10 to 20 people a day?



And overseas!
.. is just a review of the infection situation …!


①Israel, the most vaccinated country in the world ↓

↑Even if the vaccination rate is high, the number of infected people is increasing a little …


②The United Kingdom, where is in “No Guard tactics” (Although there are so many infected people, there are no restrictions on COVID-19!)

↑ The number of deaths is increasing a little …
The reason why the number of infected people is decreasing despite the no guard strategy is “unknown”


③The United States, where achieved the “first vaccination rate of 70% for all citizens” on August 2.

↑It seems that the number of infected people has returned to the level of July last year …
Even though vaccination is progressing quite a bit …
(*米CDC 新規感染者数“去年夏のピーク時水準に”ワクチン接種を – NHK)




The number of infected people in the United States, Israel, and the United Kingdom (although it has decreased a little) has increased this summer …!

…In Japan, where vaccination has not progressed…





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…




It seems that the infection is spreading both domestically and overseas this summer …
Not only in a specific country but also in the world … ↓

In the meantime, I’m afraid how far the infection will spread in Japan where the “consecutive holiday booster” has been applied …


If the government takes proper measures, it’s still …
I really think that.



…However, the current situation cannot be expected from the government …!

Please be careful when you go out!
