(*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 situation of infection in Japan continues to be terrible every day, but … the government does not take new measures, on the contrary, they are just applying the “state of emergency” and “priority measures such as prevention of spread”, which have not changed since last year, to areas where the number of infected people has increased …


And until now, the “state of emergency” and the “social off-season” happened to overlap (on purpose?), so the state of emergency seemed to be effective, but this time, the fact that “state of emergency” is “it’s really meaningless” is finally being revealed to everyone …


As a result … for example, in Okinawa

The number of newly infected people per 100,000 is 256, which is the worst level in the world …


(* Number of newly infected people per 100,000 population in each country / Places with a large number → US164.2, Iran246.1 Iraq206.6, UK275.9 Malaysia361.1, Tokyo207.20, Okinawa 256.09)

↑It seems to be the third worst situation in the world after Malaysia and the United Kingdom.


By the way, looking at the table above, it seems that the infection situation in Tokyo is just as bad in the world


It’s terrible …! T-T


In such a situation, it seems that the government and local governments are still reluctant to increase the number of areas subject to the state of emergency …!

It seems that Kyoto did not request the country to apply the state of emergency these day …
 (*It is unknown whether Kyoto was reluctant or the Japanese government was reluctant)


(Infection situation in Kyoto)


↑Even in this situation, they are still reluctant~~~ …



And as I briefly told you yesterday, it seems that ridiculous remarks were made in succession at the monitor link conference of the new coronavirus in Tokyo …!


“The spread of infection in Tokyo is already out of control”

“Emergency situations where infections are rampant at the disaster level”

“The medical care provision system is seriously dysfunctional.”

“The stage where people need to take action to prevent infection by yourself (not government)”

“Even if people want to be hospitalized, 80% cannot be adjusted. It is carried over to the next day or later.”

“It’s just a disaster to die from home recuperation.”


It’s too scary and seriously situation …
However, people walking in the city may not realize such a situation …!



(In response to the result of the meeting, a press conference by Governor Koike)

“Obon will start soon, but I would like to ask you to thoroughly stay at home during the period and postpone the cancellation of travel and homecoming.”

“How to reduce contact between people will lead to infection prevention.”

“I want you to thoroughly reduce the flow of people to 50% just before the start of the state of emergency.”

↑Because the only information dissemination as a result is this “call” …
Moreover, even though it is “out of control”, no new measures are taken…



“The stage where people need to take action to prevent infection by yourself (not government)”
“I want you to thoroughly reduce the flow of people to 50% just before the start of the state of emergency.”

↑”THAT is your (Governor Koike) job” …but she is trying to get us to do that …


We are in trouble because there are too many people to protect ourselves and the infection has spread too much …!


On the contrary,
“It’s just a disaster to die from home recuperation.”
No no no no… it’s because YOU don’t take any measures.


We want to say, “These guys are evil guys!” …!



By the way, what did Professor Omi (the Japanese government’s COVID-19 countermeasures expert) say about this unprecedented spread of infection?

He didn’t say anything in particular …! (Puzzled)


“I don’t want you to go out as much as possible” or “I want the local government to strengthen the measures” or something like that … (dry laugh)


And as a result of such a monitoring meeting in Tokyo, I wondered what Prime Minister Suga was saying …
If I was looking for the content of the interview …

He didn’t have a press conference yesterday …!


Rather, like the article above, there are only articles like “Mr. Suga has been working for 137 days in a row, but is it okay?”


For us, if he has taken the necessary measures and work, even one hour of work a day would be OK, right…!?



This is the last article of today …
The infection situation in Tokyo is ridiculously the worst in the world, but…

Still, the number of people in the city of Tokyo hasn’t decreased compared to the previous week …
Daytime  → 2.5%decrease
Nighttime → 4.5%decrease


Wh, What…?


Even though the number of terrible newly infected people is announced every day, only this is the number of people who refrained from going out after seeing it …? ↓

Only 1 in 40 people during the day,
Only 1 in 20 at night …?


Tokyo seems desperate anymore … the spread of the infection doesn’t stop …





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…




By the way, the infection situation at the same time last year was …


(Infection status in August 2020)

The peak of the second wave had come, and the number of infected people had reached nearly 500 for the first time in Japan …


However, because of the “second spread of infection”, all the people were afraid of the infection, so it had already started to decrease before the Obon holidays.



Well, based on that … now …?



Last year, it decreased from not “Obon Holidays” but “before Obon Holidays”, what will happen to the infection situation this year after “Obon holiday”?






Please be careful when you go out!
