◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆





Regarding the number of infected people in Tokyo, thanks to the fact that medical institutions are open during the Obon holidays, a fairly large number has been announced from today …!


The number of tests is suddenly large (about 18,000), so how much the number of infected people will increase this week after the holidays … I’m trembling just by imagining …! (dry laugh)




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

(Around 15:00 on Aug 17, 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.


*Since the number of new infections in Tokyo seems to be almost the number of the previous day,

(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)

*Graph of the number of newly infected people in Japan as of yesterday

(* This bar graph is up to the previous day, so today’s red bar (handwritten) is on the far right, but it’s about this …)


(*”Since the graph shows only the numbers up to the previous day, I handwritten the rightmost bar, but this is about it!”)









<Summary of today’s “Major News Related to COVID-19 in Japan”>

State of emergency
Target area : Tokyo,  Okinawa
           Saitama, Kanagawa, Chiba, Osaka

Target area : Hokkaido, Ishikawa, Hyogo, Kyoto, Fukuoka

●Period: August 2nd to August 31st



(*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)






It seems that preparations for the Paralympics (August 24th) are steadily progressing …!


“Because the infection is so widespread, I’ll make it unattended at all venues!”
“But it’s OK to watch children who are eligible for school cooperation tickets!”

“The bus company is also carefully preparing for the Paralympics!”


On the other hand … ↓

It seems that seven people are currently confirmed to be infected with the Paralympic Games.
(*There are no infected people in the athletes or those who stay in the Olympic Village)


Perhaps it’s because everyone has given up, or because it turns out that it has nothing to do with the spread of the infection, there is no voice that “Stop the Paralympics!” like before the Olympics …!



By the way, regarding the progress of vaccination in Japan,

it seems that the number of people who have completed the first vaccination has finally become half of the total population of Japan …! ↓


(1st time : 49.3% / 2nd time : 37.2%)


“The first vaccination is not very effective.”
“Infections are increasing even after the second vaccination is completed.”
It’s such a situation, so I can’t say anything anymore …


By the way, although there was no specific report at all,

it seems that Japanese Government have secured a sufficient vaccine supply contract for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines even if they are to be vaccinated for the third time!

Apparently, “the third vaccination is mandatory” …


In France … 

It seems that 210,000 people have demonstrated all over France because it is mandatory to show vaccination certificates and negative certificates at restaurants, etc …




They are complaining about “freedom to refuse vaccination”, but…
When weighed “health of restaurant employees and the majority of people” …
what is the correct answer …



The topic change and return to topic of Japan!


Recently, I have introduced the data together as “Tokyo does not use accommodation facilities for COVID-19 at all!”, but…

the reason for not using it is that “nurses cannot be secured”
It seems because they are dispatched to the vaccination site.


↓Data introduced a few days ago in summary

(*Number of rooms secured in Tokyo: 6240 rooms)


By the way … can I complain a little?
In the article … ↓



it is said that “As of the 15th, the number of users is 1525, while the number of people that can be accepted is 3210.”, but …



Data from Tokyo shows that “16 facilities = 6240 rooms” are properly secured …


Why do you lie …


… That was a bittersweet … lol



Last but not least … According to Sapporo city data,

in the “third wave” this spring, it was found that 53% of the 118 dialysis patients infected with COVID-19 died in Sapporo…


Age Number of infected people Number of deaths Case fatality rate
90代 6 5 83.3%
80代 28 21 75.0%
70代 30 17 56.7%
60代 24 13 54.2%
50代 18 3 16.7%
40代 12 4 33.3%


It seems that 361 out of 2156 people (16.7%) have died just by knowing it nationwide, but in any case, the rate is quite high …




The Obon Holidays are over, so I hope the infection will subside a little …






It seems that the state of emergency has been officially announced …!


●Addition to the area subject to the state of emergency (7 areas)
 →Ibaraki, Tochigi, Gunma, Shizuoka, Kyoto, Hyogo, Fukuoka

● Addition to priority measures such as spread prevention (10 areas)
 →Miyagi, Yamanashi, Toyama, Gifu, Mie, Okayama, Hiroshima, Kagawa, Ehime, Kagoshima


* The period is until September 12, including the extension of existing areas (6 areas).






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…




Regarding the bed usage rate for the severely ill, when I was a little relieved that Okinawa was not 100% at last, but…

it seems that Kanagawa has reached 100% this time …




It’s a really scary situation that we can’t be admitted to the hospital even if you get infected and become seriously ill …

The medical collapse seems to be steadily spreading







Please be careful when you go out!
