I’m sure there are many people who were irritated at the interview with Prime Minister Suga last night … (dry laugh)


I’ll summarize it quickly …!


Prime Minister Suga

“The cause of the spread of infection in Japan is the Delta strain.”

“Countermeasures are (1) construction of medical system, (2) infection control, and (3) vaccination.

“At the end of September, about 60% will be vaccinated twice, and we will be on par with the United States and Britain.

“The criteria for canceling the declaration is’securing the medical system’

“Lockdown is not the decisive factor for countermeasures even when looking overseas.”

“Overseas is eventually regaining daily life with vaccination.”

“Medical institutions that do not accept COVID-19 patients have revised the law so that hospital names can be published.”

“Because measures such as quarantine are necessary to treat it the same as influenza, we will discuss it when the COVID-19 subsides.”
(*For the question of whether to change to the same 5 types as seasonal influenza)


Omi sensei

“The consensus of the members of the subcommittee is that ‘compensate and regulate individual behavior’.”

“The Prime Minister should not assume that vaccines and antibody cocktail therapy alone can solve the problem.”


As a side note…

That person in Tokyo…


Governor of Tokyo Koike

“ ”


………She didn’t say a big deal! !! !! !! Lol


No, it ’s true…(dry laugh)

She didn’t really say any meanful things, only said like that “We have to control the flow of people,” “We have vaccines and remedies,” and “we can’t see the end with the Delta strain.”




Even so, it seems that Governor Koike and Prime Minister Suga only think that “it’s because of the Delta strain!” And “only vaccination will solve everything” …


Even though Omi-sensei didn’t say a word about Delta stocks …
(at least, in the article)


Mr. Omi and we seem to feel that there is nothing we can do if we do not do something about individual actions, but since Governor Koike and Prime Minister Suga are only looking at the flower garden, COVID-19 in Japan at all. Does not solve …



By the way, Prime Minister Suga is aiming for the situation of Britain and the United States by stubbornly refusing lockdown …







“The infection has spread and the number of deaths is increasing, but what on earth are you aiming for?”



By the way …

 In New Zealand, one infected person was found, so it seems that lockdown will start all over the country …!



Japan and New Zealand … What is the difference …? !!





Today I summarized the extension and regional expansion of the state of emergency, but the scary things are that

①No new measures will be taken, only extending the area and period

②After all, Kanto and Kansai, where the infection is extremely widespread, remain as they are.


The government is already “…”, so we have no choice but to hope that the infection will naturally subside in the economic off-season (= September) after the Obon festival is over …!




In that case, it would be super frustrating for the government to say, “Hey, thanks to our measures, right? lol”…! 





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…




(Although many of you may already know this news) I will briefly summarize other news!

It seems that 64 out of 199 infected people have died at “Uruma Memorial Hospital” in Okinawa


At the “Hankyu Department Store Umeda Main Store” in Osaka, 89 people have been infected at the B1 “Staff Section” and the 1st floor “Accessory Section”, and the sales floor seems to be closed!
(The whole building is not closed …)


Infection of Tottori does not stop …!

Far from the fact that the infection has not converged, they are importing more and more from outside the prefecture during the Obon Holidays…


Governor Koike “Let’s! The next Paralympic Games will be held!”


…Can someone lend me an “angry emoji”…? Lol




Well, (unfortunately) as all of you can see, the government and local government don’t really protect you, and even if you get infected, you can’t even be hospitalized …!

Let’s protect ourselves so that we will not get infected …! 






Please be careful when you go out!
