The number of infected people in Tokyo has settled down a little thanks to “Monday x consecutive holidays”, but it is still about 3000 people …


The numbers announced

*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!”)









<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)






“State of emergency” and “Priority measures such as prevention of spread” have been expanded from yesterday!

まん延防止等重点措置 きょうから拡大 不要不急の外出自粛を – NHK

The areas targeted for “Priority Measures to Prevent Spread” have been added, and the following 8 areas have been added!
Fukushima, Ibaraki, Tochigi, Gunma, Shizuoka, Aichi, Shiga, Kumamoto


(*yellow : State of emergency / blue : Priority measures such as prevention of spread / red : additional area)


I think, “Even though the infection is spreading all over the country, is it a priority measure such as prevention of spread rather than a state of emergency???” (dry laugh)

“prevent spread” ? , it’s already spread too much!



And the Tokyo Olympics, which had been criticized, ended safely (?) yesterday!


By the way, I secretly wrote down the daily reports, but the number of infected people related to the Olympic Games during the Games was like this! ↓



The total number of infected people in the graph is just 100 by August 8th yesterday.
It seems that up to 10 people were announced to be infected each day.


However, since many infected people have been confirmed before the tournament started, I can’t say anything about it, but there were no super-large clusters, so … I wonder if it was good …
It’s a place like that!



The topic changes, but there was such surprising news!

The other day, I introduced in this summary article that “the number of infected people in a week at the Isetan Shinjuku store is close to 100”, but…

↑In this article, “No, but 99% of infected people are outside employees”


No … I think ONLY you can enter the tenant (outside employees) …


Isetan’s headquarters employees are probably only those who are related to management, or sometimes directly managed stores …!



Also there are such an article …

As a result of a university internet survey … ↓


<Internet survey results>

Survey target ― 20s-60s (1 metropolitan area and 3 prefectures)
Method    - Internet survey (3100 people)
Question content - ”Do you think you will get infected in your daily life?”

↓Those who answered “I don’t think so much” or “I don’t think so”

age men women
20s 43% 42%
30s 41% 45%
40s 52% 48%
50s 55% 60%
60s 66% 70%


↑ It seems that about half of the people think that they can’t get infected …


And the scary part of this result is that “this result is a questionnaire to those who are interested in COVID-19 who bother to participate in such a questionnaire” …


I don’t think most people in the city will even participate in such a questionnaire, so the substance is … more than two-thirds think so …


By the way, I often ask this question to people I met within the scope of small talk, but I’ve only received answers such as “I don’t feel like getting infected because I’m taking measures” and “So I live a normal life, and I don’t refrain from going out” …!  (Cry)




Well, the Olympics are over, and next is the Obon holiday …

How far will the infection spread …

However, beyond that, school will start, summer will end, and the socially quiet period will begin, so I think the infection will subside a little …



Can we bear that much about spread of 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…





What to do now…! ??
The infection situation in Taiwan does not stop …! !! !! !!


(Recently, the number of infected people seems to be around 20 people a day)


↑While the number of infected people is decreasing, it doesn’t stop! (Lol)


Meanwhile, at that time Japan





Even in this situation, there are some countries that are steadily ending the infection.


What I want to say is …
“Delta stocks are not the factor!”

Everyone in Japan uses the “Delta strain” as an excuse for the spread of infection to continue … Dry laugh






Please be careful when you go out!
