I think today is the lowest number of people infected in Tokyo this week, but it’s still higher than last week …


It seems that medical institutions are open during the Obon holidays, I’m pretty scared of how much it will increase after tomorrow …

(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)






By the way, “Week of after the Obon holidays of horror” will finally start tomorrow …!


… I roughly looked at information on representative medical institutions, but as usual this year, it seems that “Obon holidays” are open except Saturdays and Sundays, so the number of infected people announced will probably be higher from Tuesday


What will happen to the infection situation …!



And at such a medical institution, it seems that there are really no beds for COVID-19 patients in Tokyo

Those who were found to be infected on August 5th, which was interviewed by NHK, despite
[male in his 60s, chronic illness such as diabetes, high fever around 39 degrees]
, it seems that the health center told him that there was no bed for him and he was forced to take care of himself at home …

After all, his symptoms worsened and he was hospitalized on August 12, about a week later …


The current situation in Tokyo is … ↓

(昨日8月15日の東京の感染状況 – *東京都福祉保健局)


“8,533 positive people up to the day before”
= people who have already been confirmed positive as of yesterday
= people who have been waiting for a response from the health center from the day before


Of the 8533 people, 6532 are still waiting after a day …
Even more scary, the number of new infections on August 14 was 5094, which means that (6532-5094 =) about 1500 people have been left unattended after two days …


The difference between “home recuperation” and “continuing to wait for a response at home” is a huge difference, isn’t it?


Today’s Tokyo seems to have come to such a dangerous place …



Well, the topic changes!

It seems that Western research teams have conducted the largest research ever on the aftereffects of COVID-19 (so- called “long COVID-19”)!


<The largest ever survey on COVID-19 sequelae>


Method    - Online survey
Period      - September 6, 2020-November 25, 2020
          & 7 months or more of follow-up survey
Target     - People whose symptoms persist for more than 28 days after onset
Report example  - 3762 cases (56 countries)

●Patients whose symptoms persist for more than 35 weeks (about 8 months) →
● Muscle, cardiovascular, digestive, lung / respiratory symptoms →
85% or more
● Other common cases →
Fatigue, post-behavioral malaise, cognitive dysfunction


… There was a lot of talk about “sequelae” around this time last year, but I haven’t heard much about it since the beginning of this year, so I’ve summarized it at the right time!


But ... I’m most concerned about how many infected people (rate) suffer from long-term sequelae …



And … not only us, but the medical industry seems to be infuriated by the government!

It ’s the usual “uncle”, but … lol


Tokyo Medical Association, Chairman Ozaki

“The Olympics were not a direct cause of straining Japan’s medical system.”

“However, the Olympics are a festival, so I think the people have relaxed their mind.”

“Prime Minister Suga only sent the message,‘The number of infected people is increasing, but the number of seriously ill people is not increasing because the elderly are finishing vaccination. It’s OK that the number of people dying will not increase.’

“What comes to my mind is that he have not taken measures to reduce the number of infected people while increasing the number of infected people and severely ill people by making such a misleading.”

“Prime Minister Suga only says” Let’s hit the vaccine more and more “in the mood of giving up.”

“(Paralympic) I don’t think it’s possible to hold it in this situation.”



….. He seem to think exactly the same as us … (dry laugh)




There is nothing we can do as long as the government does nothing and the city is full of people … but
I hope that the Obon festival is over and the economy is in a quiet period, and the infection will subside as much as possible …!





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…




The infection has spread too much and it will affect such places ……… ↓

In Taito Ward, Tokyo, the infection of garbage collectors has spread so much , so it is unbelievable but “incombustibles cannot be collected until the end of the month” …!



“We can’t do it until the end of August” …
 But It’s still about half a month …! ??


Really, there is nothing that can spread the infection …







Please be careful when you go out!
