5094 ( -679 from the day before) new infections confirmed in Tokyo.





◆◆◆ Japan ◆◆◆






(Cumulative) * The following is up to 10 worst prefectures.

*( )= increase  from the day before



 (*All of the above from 2021/08/14 19:00 /  NHK NEWS WEB)



◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆





It has been on Obon holiday since yesterday, but the number of infected people does not decrease at all …!


Looking at the “Number of tests in Tokyo” posted a little below, it seems that the numbers for the tests are normal (not the numbers for the holiday mode) yesterday, so medical institutions and health centers may operate as usual…

Looking at the total for the week … ↓



I thought that it just bounced after the holidays at the end of July, but it’s still increasing …

It only looks like “still increasing” rather than “close to the peak” …!




Meanwhile… How about the amount of people in the city in Tokyo…↓

(Around 15:00 on Aug 14, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)

*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.

(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)

(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)






Regarding a man in his 60s in Tokyo who died of COVID-19 despite having been vaccinated twice, the day before yesterday, it seems that…

in fact, “it is the first time in Tokyo that he has died after two vaccinations.”


As I introduced here the other day, the number of COVID-19 patients and home care recipients in Tokyo is only increasing … ↓


(*The situation of COVID-19 patients in Tokyo)


(*purple : hospital / green : accommodation facility for COVID-19 : green /  blue : home / pink : not decided yet)


.. Speaking of which, ↓ has recently become a hot topic about “accommodation treatment” …!

It seems that the latest “antibody cocktail therapy”
(= two drugs are infused at the same time. The risk of hospitalization and death is reduced by 70%)
has started at the accommodation facility …!



This fact means that our medical treatment must be “accommodation medical treatment” rather than “home medical treatment” …!


However, the usage status of accommodation facilities in Tokyo is … ↓




↑Why is the number of infected people soaring, but the number of patients of accommodation facility are not increasing …?
Rather … why are there days when it’s been
decreasing recently …?


There should be “6240 rooms” currently secured for accommodation facilities, but …
(As of August 14)

Only about 2000 rooms are used …


Expressed in terms of usage rate ↓


↑The Tokyo Metropolitan Government uses only 30%?!!
Too much money wasted …!


… I’ve been saying that for about a year now (dry laugh)



By the way, in Osaka,

the occupancy rate of accommodation facilities for COVID-19 patients (4148 rooms) seems to be 60.8%, so it seems that they are using it effectively enough, but they also said that “admission is basically 40 years old or older” …!


Hmm … what’s the difference between Tokyo and Osaka…





Now, let’s change the topic a little, and some small topics …


Tokyo Medical Association
“No one can listen to the policies and measures that government have been saying.”

↑↑ Even important people know it properly …!
What!?? “Actually, the government know that, but they are just ignoring”!??

“We will do additional vaccinations for people with immunodeficiency!”

It seems that it will be effective if people with immunodeficiency such as organ transplants are additionally vaccinated!

By the way, in Japan
Male in his 80s “I was vaccinated four times because I thought the effect had diminished.”
↑It seems that there are some selfish people who have been vaccinated twice overseas but also vaccinated twice in Japan …

Japanese Government
“As you might expect, the first person infected with the Lambda strain found in the quarantine at the airport is an Olympic official.”

A woman in her thirties who had traveled to Peru brought it in July, but she was also an Olympic official …!

After the Olympics are over, “related” will be announced … as expected, the government … WISE …!



I’ve put together the small news in Funny (lol), but it’s Obon holiday’s news like that!


.. By the way, at the monitoring meeting in Tokyo, experts and Governor Koike said that “the infection situation in Tokyo is out of control”, but then the Paralympics … will be canceled …?

(*Regarding the Olympics, I thought that “If you take proper measures with no spectators, it doesn’t matter to the people, so if you want to do it, please do it …”, but… if you can’t control it, you cannot hold it anymore …!)





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…




I thought the governor of Saitama was capable …


Governor Ohno

“Large commercial facilities, please take additional measures such as admission restrictions or something!”


Noooooooooooo …! YOU must think specific method!
Think more concretely about countermeasures …!



Hmm … Is every governor the same after all …?
I will punish him with “We consider him akin to Governor Koike.”! Lol






Please be careful when you go out!
