*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)

(*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)






Aichi had requested the government to apply the state of emergency a few days ago, but this time it seems that Mie has requested it …!

Yeah, the number of infected people yesterday was strange in Mie …!




By the way, I didn’t even look for it, so I made it!
It’s the highest number of infected people in each prefecture until August 21st yesterday is like this … ↓



(*↑ Shows a list of the highest number of infected people in each prefecture in Japan.)


… huh … it took more than an hour to make …!

(I shouldn’t have thought about making it …)





As a result, for now …

●Prefectures that have been inducted into the Hall of Fame due to too many infected people

●Club of “2000 infected people”
  →Kanagawa / Osaka / Saitama

●Club of “1000 infected people”
  →Chiba / Aichi / Fukuoka / Hyogo

●Club of “500 infected people”
  →Okinawa / Hokkaido / Shizuoka / Kyoto


I hope they don’t “promote” anymore!
… Especially Kanagawa, don’t promote to “3000 Club”…!


By the way…

●Club of “50 or less infected people”
  →Tottori / Fukui / Akita

As expected!


By the way, it seems that the infection of Tottori is still unsettled, but


 as far as I can see, it seems that Tottori is still following the infection route!↓


Rather … they seem to be doing the last step to clean up the people who went out of the prefecture or went home during the Obon holidays and “Bring back ♪” the virus!




Wow … the person in charge would be irritated … lol



And I will change the topic and briefly introduce small news …!

I was always curious about it while summarizing it …

(Recent infection route in Tokyo found at the monitoring conference in Tokyo)

●Among those whose infection route is known …
 ・Family infection - 64.4%
 ・Workplace    - 15.4%
 ・Drinking party   ―   3.0%
 ・Facilities such as nursery schools, schools and hospitals ― 5.5%

It may be summer vacation, but I feel that there are quite a lot of clusters in schools, nursery schools, cram schools, etc. all over the country, or that it is becoming mainstream.



Also, regarding “airport quarantine”, maybe because the government was trying to hide the lambda stock,
from this “discovery of variant strains in airport quarantine” data …,↓



It’s easy to understand, and the name of the variant strain is listed!

It was pretty hard to understand until now …! lol



And finally, AstraZeneca vaccination has begun in Tokyo!

It seems that women in their 40s who decided to vaccinate because they had children and the school will resume, and women in their 20s who said that they couldn’t make a vaccination reservation at all!

So, from the context of the article (not mentioned in the article), it seems like the applicant is vaccinating!


Oh yeah! That’s fine …
Rather than the government stopping vaccination at its own discretion, some people will be vaccinated in this way if they solicit applicants!



By the way, at the “Large-scale vaccination site for medical staff” of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government,

one medical worker who had completed the second vaccination in late July is given the third vaccination with the approval of the doctor in charge of vaccination.




, right!?


I thought “I don’t know if the person in charge was selfish by him or if he was an important person … why would he do such a selfish thing …”, but in the comment section, I was surprised to hear many voices like below …
“Because medical worker have many risk!”
“The third vaccination is popular overseas!”


No … there are people who haven’t even been vaccinated for the first time, the problem is that they secretly break the rules and use the vaccine for that person …

Unless it is decided equally that “all medical staff will be vaccinated for the third time!” …





By the way, the “week after the holidays” is over, and the next week has begun!
If it’s the usual flow,
① Week after consecutive holidays → Large explosion of infection
② Next week → Infection begins to settle down (two weeks after consecutive holidays)
but what will happen this time …


We have to keep an eye on the number of infected people every day!
…… is that always … 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…




The Fuji Rock Festival of “we’re taking proper measures!” looks like this …

No matter how you think about it, “people are too crowded !!!” …



In addition, there was a live performance,
(I won’t put it on it) Well … as you guessed it …


What if a really big cluster happens …
What if I can’t move for hours due to heavy rain or something …



Perhaps the organizer is also fighting the crisis of bankruptcy, but it makes me think about “risk management” in various ways …





Please be careful when you go out!
