*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 …)

<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)




According to the information at this point, 




Today, the first topic is that
the government seems to have a policy of applying “priority measures such as spread prevention” to
“Fukushima, Ibaraki, Tochigi, Gunma, Shizuoka, Aichi, Shiga, Kumamoto”, but…

According to the Minister for Economic Revitalization Nishimura, there was an application from Hiroshima, but it was not included in the target area because “the number of newly infected people and the medical care provision system are still in stage 2, so you do not have to take priority measures”…


By the way, Minister Nishimura seems to recognize the current spread of infection as “a rapid increase in the number of orders that he has never experienced” …


Prime Minister Suga also seems to…

 be still relaxing, saying, “I’m not thinking about applying the state of emergency to the whole country.”


No … it’s too late after expanding …
On the contrary, it’s already expanding …
In the first place, neither “measures” nor “declarations” mean anything, so …
It’s a difficult place …


By the way, Prime Minister Suga has given up on stopping the spread of the infection, as he said, “80% of people aged 60 and over are vaccinated, and the measures are in place where necessary.”



And recently, the topic is “COVID-19 patients are basically treated at home except for the severely ill”, but 

it seems that the government did not consult with Dr. Omi at all …
(* Dr. Omi = Chief of the Japanese Government’s Specialist for Coronavirus Infectious Disease Control)

It’s natural. Because if they suggested such a stupid thing to Mr. Omi, he would get angry …

Aside from the joke, Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare Tamura said, “The horizontal connection was bad”, but for us, it doesn’t matter what your friendship or connection is, and we want YOU to understand that COVID-19-related matters depend on our lives …

And regarding “basically home medical treatment”, it was said that “severely ill patients and patients with a high risk of becoming severely ill are TARGET of hospitalize” …

It was clarified that “moderate patients are also eligible for hospitalization in principle” …!



“If you have difficulty breathing but you are not seriously ill and you are moderately ill, you will not be hospitalized.”
That’s crazy!



And about 3 small topics!

The latest report also concluded that “there was no causal relationship between people who died after vaccination and vaccination”!
(* Number of deaths after vaccination → ① Pfizer: 828 ② Moderna: 6)
(* = ① Pfizer: 19 people per million ② Moderna: 2 people per million)

The US government is planning to require vaccination for almost all foreign immigrants!
Even in the United States, where vaccination is relatively high, is so vigilant, but Japan is…

According to WHO (World Health Organization), “Avoid the third vaccination until at least the end of September!”
Many people haven’t even finished their first vaccination …
…that’s Japan too …




today’s major COVID-19 related news, but what is the Japanese government really going to do? ??

Even if it is said that “priority measures such as prevention of spread” are newly applied to 8 areas, even a state of emergency is meaningless, and the spread of infection in the target areas will not stop …

In the current situation where ordinary people are “accustomed to COVID-19 in a bad way” instead of “tired from COVID-19 life”, I think that the measures taken so far are completely meaningless


The government and politicians are threatening the people, saying, “We have to lock down!”, but … I don’t mind if you limit our freedom at all.
In the first place, people who are careful about infectious disease countermeasures will not be so free even now …(dry laugh)



Hmm … I don’t feel like the infection is going down at all! 🙁





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…




Is Tottori no good anymore …?


44 people were infected yesterday …
I couldn’t fit on another screen … ↓


Even with the cumulative number of infected people, it has overtaken Shimane Prefecture, and the difference is widening …

▽ Iwate Prefecture has 2078 people (13)
▽ Tokushima Prefecture has 1834 people (12)
▽ Fukui Prefecture has 1758 people (22)
▽ Akita Prefecture has 1044 people (6)
▽ Tottori prefecture has 916 people (44)
▽ Shimane Prefecture has 773 people (10)


Like Iwate, who survived the first wave in April last year without any damage, but the virus entered in the second wave and fell …


You can see that when a virus enters an area free of viruses, it spreads so quickly.


What do you think Japan needs now …?





Please be careful when you go out!
