*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 …)

(*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, since Wednesday, I’ve been updating the record high every day,
so the number of infected people has settled down to some extent today (just a little bit), but in Japan as a whole, the number of infected people continued to reach a record high for four consecutive days until yesterday Saturday …!



↑Well … Since July 28th, the number of infected people has never fallen below that “highest ever” …


By the way, as of today, “yesterday’s 15,753 people” is supposed to be the largest number ever (provisional), but it looks like this when expressed (roughly) on a Japanese map …! ↓


(*NHK) + ぬり絵しました!


Looking only at red and orange, it seems that there are some tracks …
Sightseeing spots (Hokkaido / Okinawa)
Along the Shinkansen

… Well, but it may be natural because the Shinkansen is laid in a place with a large population …!


There is also an Obon holiday (August 13th to 16th) this week, so what will happen …!



Well, in such a domestic situation, the government is in a state of “betting all the money on the vaccine” without hiding it anymore.
They’re like girls in their first love, who can’t think of anything else …!

How much they aren’t hiding …

It seems that Prime Minister Suga conducted a hearing yesterday about the status of economic activities in countries where vaccination is progressing …!


What we should do now is
“to stop the further spread of infection”,
but the direction the government is looking at is
“I don’t care about the current infection situation, so what should I do with the world after vaccination~~~~~!” 


Isn’t it their first love, right? (lol)
The inside of their head is in a flower field …!



Although it is such a vaccine, there were many reports this weekend, so I think many of you already know it, but I will summarize it!

It is a vaccine made by Moderna, which is mainly used in “workplace vaccination” and “large-scale government vaccination center”, but there was various additional information at the time of the announcement of the financial results of Moderna!


①The efficacy remains high at 93% 2 weeks to 6 months after vaccination.
②Since it is a mutant strain, its effectiveness is expected to decrease after that.
③It seems that a third vaccination will be required after this fall (when the first vaccinated person will reach half a year later).
④Currently, Moderna is developing and researching multiple types such as the conventional type and the mutant strain-specific type as the third inoculation vaccine.


It looks like we’ll need a third vaccination
 (*It’s a so-called “booster vaccine”)

By the way, “neutralizing antibody against mutant strains decreases significantly after 6 months (1/6 of after 1 month of vaccination), but if half the amount of the same vaccine is additionally vaccinated, it exceeds 1 month after vaccination.”
So, it seems like “It’s okay for half a year of vaccination! But half a year later, half the amount is enough, so please take an additional vaccination”!


By the way, in response to that, the Japanese government is…

it seems that they have begun to consider additional vaccination next year!


Rather … I want them to continue vaccination once every six months until COVID-19 disappears in the world … lol



Currently, the number of people who have completed the first vaccination in Japan is…

about 50-60 million! It is about 46% of the total population!




And it also seems that about 33% of the total population has completed the second vaccination!

First time    - about 58.1 million people (about 30.96 million elderly people)
Second time - about 41.56 million people (about 28.4 million elderly people)


It seems that there are only about 13 million people other than the elderly who have completed the vaccination for the second time, but I hope that vaccination will proceed as soon as possible!




…… but now … Please someone stop the spread of the infection—————-!





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…




Regarding the spread of infection, a research group at Kyoto University has announced a terrifying calculation result …

The pace of increase in Tokyo these days is “1.7 times”, but if they calculate it … ↓



↑ The number of newly infected people per day exceeded 10,000 in the latter half of next week, and exceeded 30,000 at the end of this month …


I want the prediction to miss, but it’s likely to be true and too scary…


By the way, already in Kanagawa next to Tokyo said,

“We don’t have a bed anymore.” … ↓


(*”The number of medical consultations with doctors who coordinate transportation at the prefectural office is the highest ever. There are no beds other than temporary medical facilities.”)


After all, we must manage the rapid increase in infected people immediately, so it is not the case that we are expanding our heart and nose to the “post-vaccination world” now …






Please be careful when you go out!
