◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆





The number of infected people in Tokyo has already exceeded 5,000 …


About the last week’s “week after consecutive holidays”
usually means “the number of infected people will increase very much only in that week”, but
this time it meant that “the spread of infection was boosted by consecutive holidays”




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

(Around 15:00 on Aug 05, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, 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.

*The following areas introduced until the other day will be excluded for a while.

*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)





I think everything will be clear on weekends, but it seems that the target areas for “emergency declaration” and “priority measures such as spread prevention” will expand considerably …


Even just the articles I saw recently … ↓



Fukuoka → Requesting application of “state of emergency”
(*福岡県、緊急事態宣言を要請へ 感染急拡大受け – Yahoo!)

Ibaraki → Requesting application of “state of emergency”
(*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)

Aichi → Scheduled to apply for “Priority measures such as prevention of spread”
(*愛知県 大村知事「“重点措置” 国に要請せざるをえない」 – NHK)

Hiroshima → Policy to apply “Priority measures such as prevention of spread”
(*広島 湯崎知事 「まん延防止等重点措置」近く要請する方針示す – NHK)

Prime Minister Suga → Scheduled to consult with subcommittees on application of “priority measures such as prevention of spread” to various places

(*感染拡大地域への“まん延防止“措置適用 あす分科会に諮問へ – NHK





According to the information at this point, the government seems to have a policy of applying “priority measures such as spread prevention” to
“Fukushima, Ibaraki, Tochigi, Gunma, Shizuoka, Aichi, Shiga, Kumamoto”.
(*8県に“まん延防止”適用方針 政府固める – Yahoo!)



Well, the topic has changed …
It seems that a cluster has finally occurred in the Olympic Village …

It seems that 5 out of 12 Greek artistic swimmers were positive …

By August 3rd, all 12 of them had already left the Olympic Village, and they are in quarantine facilities and hospitals …
They also missed the competition …


Anyway, “Where? When?” They were infected …
It’s strange …
The above article did not mention “time of entry and infection route”, but looking at this article → (東京新聞), it seems that they have already entered the country in early July? ??
(It may not be included in this entry rush …)


Anyway, I hope it doesn’t spread anymore …



Also, in domestic news …


In a week, 73 people were confirmed to be infected at the Isetan Shinjuku store, and some sales floors are closed …
It seems that Lumine Est Shinjuku is closed due to the large number of infected people


And the spread of Delta strains doesn’t seem to stop …

“Delta stocks are more than doubled in the four prefectures of the Kanto region than they were a week ago.”
→It seems that it already has been almost 50% to 60% of all infection at every prefecture …


By the way, regarding this, it seems that the expert meeting of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare estimates that 

“Delta strains already account for 90% of all infections in the metropolitan area” …



…There is so much (bad) information that it’s almost dizzying…!
… I’m going to have difficulty breathing … lol



On the other hand, Overseas …

In New York, vaccination certificates are required when using indoor facilities, including restaurants and gyms, and

In Wuhan, China, which is suspected to be the source of COVID-19, only 12 people were confirmed to be infected in two days, 12 million citizens (!?) Will be tested for PCR again,



So it’s only Japan that is cutting corners (the government is in a state of being overwhelmed) …

The Japanese government does not take such measures at all and declares that there is no solution other than vaccines …



How did this happen…! 🙁






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…




Recently, “severity in the 40s and 50s” has been regarded as a serious problem, but

now it is in this situation!↓

The article said, “In Tokyo, vaccination in the 40s and 50s has not progressed at all”, but … ↓


(Vaccination rate for people in their 40s in the 23 wards of Tokyo)

(*Yellow: 1st vaccination, Orange: 2nd vaccination)


(Vaccination rate for people in their 50s in the 23 wards of Tokyo)

(*Yellow: 1st vaccination, Orange: 2nd vaccination)


↑What do you think?
I thought, “It’s a lot more advanced than I expected …!” (lol)

By the way, it seems that every ward in their 20s to 30s (first vaccination rate) is in the range of “less than 10%” to “under 30%”.



The Japanese government is just watching over the spread of the infection without any other new measures, even though the rate is still so low …


We’d like to ask them seriously, “YOU REALLY THINK IT WILL WORK !?” (dry laugh)





Please be careful when you go out!
