4295 ( -799 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 2021/08/15 19:00 /  NHK NEWS WEB)



◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆





Even though the Obon holiday is the third day, there is no sign that the number of infected people in Tokyo will decrease at all.


If we think positively, it’s that 
“The medical institution was normally open on August 13th, the first day of consecutive holidays, so it’s no different from a normal Sunday.”, but
either way, I think the effects of people’s actions during the Obon holidays will come out on weekdays this week after the Obon holidays, so … hmm … it’s scary just to think about it …!




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

(Around 15:00 on Aug 15, 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)

(*”Anyway … Recently, the increase in the usage rate of beds for the severely ill in Tokyo, isn’t it pretty ugly …?)


(Although nationwide)
The increase in the usage rate of beds for the severely ill in Tokyo is too terrible! !! !! !!


It seems like this is how the number of seriously ill people is increasing now … ↓



As summarized in the above tabulation, there are only 392 beds for the severely ill in Tokyo, so the ratio is increasing like this … ↓


(*20%=stage3 / 50%=stage4(the worst stage))


Stage 4 has already gone beyond and is increasing at a ridiculously steep angle …


By the way, as of August 14, it was 62.5% (+ 4.6% the day before), so if this pace simply continues, the bed usage rate for critically ill people in Tokyo will reach 100% in about a week …

It’s pretty bad ……………… 



Now! It’s such a dangerous situation in Japan! but…

Health center in Tokyo
“We can’t keep up with our work anymore, so we’ll further reduce our close contact survey!”


Continuing  survey↓
Family, school, medical institution, facility for the elderly, etc.

Target to stop survey↓
Workplace, dinner, drinking party, etc.


↑It means that more than ever, “We don’t know if it’s a cluster!”
And the infection spreads further by that amount …


“Focus on patient health rather than research to prevent the spread of infection”
It seems like that, but… “YOU CAN JUST INCREASE THE NUMBER OF STAFF!” I think…



By the way, the government will consider expanding the area covered by the state of emergency next week!

No … we all know that the state of emergency is meaningless, so think about other new “effective” measures …


But the government seems to have something more important than that!

“Since the Olympics are over, we have more time to spare the PCR test system at the airport!”
“So the maximum number of immigrants will be increased from 2000 to 3500!”

→They are crazy about relaxation …



On the other hand, in the States

The US health authorities have approved a third booster vaccination!


Like that, they think that now we have to take further measures …


Let me see…, Japan….



By the way, the Obon holiday is only one day left …
What will happen to the infection situation from the day after tomorrow after the holidays …





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…




Meanwhile, in China at that time …

One of the residents living in a luxury condominium (2500 households) was infected, so it seems that all the condominiums were closed …!


It seems that all the people who stopped by for business, the tutor, and even the delivery staff on delivery were trapped …

It’s expected China, isn’t it? The scale is too different … lol



Meanwhile, Japan


↑Scramble crossing around 18:30 on August 12 (Tokyo)



Hmm … (confused)







Please be careful when you go out!
