*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.

(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)






Well, the Bon holiday is over, and the next week (which was supposed to be an infection explosion) has passed!


Ideally, the number of infected people will settle down from around this week, but in the news … ↓

In this way, it seems that the number of people in the city has decreased a little on the last weekend!


(* Green is the place name, numbers are the increase / decrease in the number of people in the daytime in the front, and the increase / decrease in the nighttime in the back. And blue= decrease, red=increase)



However, in “major infected areas (Tokyo, Kanagawa, etc.)”, it has decreased by only about 10% to 20%, so it feels like “Is it really going to decrease?”


In any case, we cannot expect government measures, so we have no choice but to expect such a “natural decrease in seasonal people such as during off-season”!



By the way, what the Japanese government is thinking about now


Even in such a situation, IOC (= International Olympic Committee) Chairman Bach is allowed to enter and return to Japan with “no quarantine period” as a special case …


Remarks during the meeting between Prime Minister Suga and an important person in the medical industry ↓

Prime Minister Suga
“The mortality rate for the number of newly infected people in Japan is very low in the world.”
“To maintain it, we firmly support medical care including treatment of critically ill patients.”

↑He is happy with the status quo and doesn’t really care about the currently terrible “number of new infections” …


Minister for Economic Revitalization Nishimura
“(While making various excuses …) The number of people in the city does not decrease easily.”
“I want to devise what can be done with the existing law”
“I want to think that the restrictions can be relaxed for those who have been vaccinated.”


Hmm… you think that if people get vaccinated, you have already decided to alleviate it …

But …


The other day, “a total of 350,000 people mobilized in eight games at the European soccer championship in England” became a hot topic, but …


That … 6400 people were infected after all …?
Mr. Suga, Mr. Nishimura, do you really know that …?




By the way, with such England …

↑The number of infected people in Japan is almost same anymore …!





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…




Meanwhile, in Tokushima at that time …

It seems that they are vaccinated on a large scale for high school third graders who visit outside the prefecture to get a job or go on to school!



What is that gentle world line …




Students are relieved by that, and the accepting side is also relieved!





Please be careful when you go out!
