“The infection situation in Tokyo is out of control”

“The medical care provision system is no longer functioning.”

(*4府県“宣言”追加 5道府県“まん延防止”適用を決定 政府 – NHK)
(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 number of infected people in Japan continues to be too dangerous every day …


The government and the governor of Tokyo said like every day that, “The elderly are vaccinated, so the number of seriously ill people is small, so it would be a problem if you had the same image for the number of infected people as before.” (= Even if there are many infected people, there is noooo problem!)
However, recently there has been a lot of news about the collapse of medical care



First of all … ↓

The fifth wave of COVID-19 “virus” seems to be so toxic that it becomes severe in just a few days …!

The article says40s to 50s without underlying illness” …, but…

Yesterday I also posted a breaking news on Twitter at 16:45, but it seems that a man in his thirties had died in Tokyo …



· 1 person living
・ No underlying illness ・ Not obese
・ There was no abnormality when the health center contacted him the day before.
・ The next day they entered the condominium because his family said “I can’t get in contact with him” and he died…

Regarding that, Governor Koike just said,
“We continued to observe his health, but his condition suddenly changed.” … ↓




By the way, “how many people are currently dying during home medical treatment?” is …

Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare “We do not know”




This seems to be a statement at a joint meeting of the COVID-19 Countermeasures Headquarters and the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, and they said,
“There are many cases that we have not been able to grasp, and we have not comprehensively grasped it.”


The point that they want to say is this! ↓
“It doesn’t matter if there are many infected people!”
“Basically, please take care of yourself at home!”
“But I don’t care if you die!”
It’s a terrifying country. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ..



And regarding the medical care provision system, there was also a message from such an individual!



(* “It seems that all ambulances were out today”)


↑It seems that the ambulance in Tokyo was out on August 10th ..


This person seems to be a medical professional who has been working at ER for many years, but he has given us the following information.
“There are 50 COVID-19-related emergency requests a day.”
“Requests for accepting critically ill patients in their 20s and 30s are also coming”
You can see the actual medical situation in Japan, so please take a look …!



By the way, Tokyo is …

Even if you are lucky enough to arrange an ambulance, you cannot find a hospital to accept it in Tokyo, and there are increasing cases of being transported to a hospital in Saitama prefecture



Still, the number of people does not decrease from the city of Tokyo …





↑Both are at the Tokyo-Scramble intersection, but the time zone when the restaurant should be closed …


With an unstoppable increase in the positive rate … ↓

(* Tokyo = 22.3%, Kanagawa = 28.1%, Hyogo = 20.1%)


Bed usage rate for critically ill people finally reaches 100% … ↓

(*Okinawa = Already full (100%) )



The Japanese government seems to be considering the following, but …

・ Extension of the state of emergency from August 31
・ Expansion of state of emergency from few prefectures to nationwide

Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare Tamura
“It will be an era where we will be dating COVID-19 on a daily basis.”

Government ministers
“Even if you make a declaration nationwide, the number of infected people will not decrease.”
“It will be a situation that cannot be canceled for many years”

As mentioned above, it seems that politicians think that the current situation is “should be accept” rather than “abnormal”




Today I have summarized the news of the collapse of medical care!
Anyway, let’s be careful not to get infected …!


(*A person who became severely ill with COVID-19 “I thought I was far from being infected.)





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…




NHK’s opinion poll seems to have shown such a result …! ↓

Q.Is the government’s vaccination progressing smoothly?
 Well    - 18%
 Too slow! - 75%



Q.Will you travel or go parent’s home this summer?
 Yes! or Already!  - 9%
 have not decided!  - 16%
 No!          - 72%


Considering that “I haven’t decided yet” = “I have a desire to travel and go parent’s home”,
it seems that a total of 25% = 1 in 4 people intends to travel and go their parent’s home …



By the way, what will happen to the infection situation in Japan beyond the Obon holidays …




……Hey, I hate seeing the “promised future of despair”~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~! 🙁






Please be careful when you go out!
