◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆





Although the number of infected people in Tokyo has not yet reached 6000, it is wandering around the highest number ever …


Currently, Japan (government) has no countermeasures and has no choice but to wait for the infection to settle in the natural course (such as during the off-season after the Obon holidays), so it is no wonder that the number of infections will increase …





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

(Around 15:00 on Aug 18, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)

(*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)






The target area of ​​”Emergency Declaration” and “Priority Measures to Prevent Spread” has been expanded, but …



Chairman Omi of Government COVID-19 Countermeasures Subcommittee

“The declaration is not effective because society as a whole is not cooperative.”

“It is not important to issue a declaration nationwide, it is important to extinguish the fire in a short period of time.”

“The test system is not in time + the people do not actively test → I think that there are more infected people in substance.”

“It is necessary to halve the number of people”


Nishimura Minister for Economic Revitalization

“I want to secure medical staff as the accommodation facilities for COVID-19 patients expand.”



There is a great contrast between the expert who, like us, say “we should limit human behavior” and the politician who are looking in completely different directions …!


On the contrary, the government

has begun to review the criteria for lifting the state of emergency …


Did you think that the cancellation criteria will be stricter?
No, it is different…
According to the article, “to lift the declaration earlier than September 12,”  they want to change it as follows.

Standards up to now → Number of newly infected people, medical system, etc.
Criteria under consideration → Vaccination status, number of severely ill persons, etc.


… Seriously, the Japanese government thinks “I don’t care about the number of infected people”


… Is it because there is an election?



By the way, I introduced this in the summary of the day before yesterday … ↓

 ・A woman in her 40s, who was infected with all three family members and undergoing medical treatment at home, was found lying down by her husband and was confirmed dead as it was …
   (→Health observation at the health center the day before = No need for hospitalization)


About that at the press conference of Governor Koike

She said, “I pray for her soul,” but the next word, “COVID-19 can make people’s physical condition worse,” as if it had nothing to do with her.

↑Everyone thinks it’s a man-made disaster …


By the way, Governor Koike is crazy about vaccination!

She said “We will set up a reservation-free vaccination venue near Shibuya station this month!”

Of course, it is important to proceed with vaccination, but
now it is more important to “stop the spread of infection” …?


*From vaccination to effectiveness
 →Approximately one month to one and a half months
   (*1st vaccination~3 weeks to 2nd vaccination~effective in a few weeks)



And there is such article like bellow…

It seems that 90% of the viruses nationwide have already been replaced by Delta strains …!


And even the vaccine seems to be quite ineffective after half a year of vaccination, but …

It seems that the effect of suppressing the virus will continue even after half a year if it is a vaccine of Moderna instead of Pfizer!


(*Vaccine efficacy / 100% = conventional, “アルファ” = alpha strain (UK), “デルタ” = delta strain (india), “ベータ” = beta strain (South Africa))


↑It seems that it is difficult to work only for the South African type.
I hope the South African type doesn’t become popular …



In Kanagawa, Governor Kuroiwa said, “The vaccination rate will reach 80% in November,” but … 
(神奈川 黒岩知事「ワクチン接種8割完了は11月中に」 – NHK)
it’s still August now…!


If so … Japan will be in this situation according to the government’s plan

“Infection continues to spread until November”
“Leave it to nature without taking any new measures”





……What do you want to do? government?

When they come to this point, we don’t understand their intention. .. ..





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 “latest version” as of August 17th … ↓

The rate of hospitalization for all corona patients in each municipality is ↓,



but it seems to be quite “low”.


However, ↓

There are so many areas where bed usage for COVID-19 patient exceeds 70% …
It is in a state of being “refused to be hospitalized” …


And the “bed usage rate for the severely ill” is …

↑Tokyo(85%), Okinawa(96%), and Kanagawa(100%!) continue to be in a state where they cannot even be hospitalized even if they become severely ill …

Chiba(70%) is becoming that way too …


By the way, the positive rate (PCR test) is like this … ↓



What is 20% over in several areas …? And Kanagawa … 37% …! ??



It seems that 1 in 5 people (1 in 3 people in Kanagawa) are infected …



Currently, Japan is in a “medical collapse state” where people are forced to undergo home medical treatment even if they have an underlying illness and die during home medical treatment, but there is no sense of crisis from the city, the news, or politicians. 



… It’s been a transcendental negative article ​today… I’m sorry! :<






Please be careful when you go out!
