(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)






Both the bed usage rate for the severely ill and the positive rate continue to remain high, but …

 – NHK

(As of August 22, the day before yesterday)


(Bed usage rate for the severely ill)


(Saitama91%, Chiba74%, Tokyo91%, Kanagawa91%)



(Test positive rate)

(Gumma20.3%, Chiba28.9%, Tokyo23.0%, Kanagawa35.5%, Kyoto22.1%, Hyogo25.0%)


The “100%” of beds for the severely ill rate has been resolved in Kanagawa and Okinawa, but this time Tokyo and Saitama are on the 90% level


In the news the other day, it was reported that “They could not find a hospitalization destination in Tokyo by emergency transportation, and there was a case where the patient was transported to Saitama”, but Saitama shouldn’t be no longer thinking about other areas …


And in such “Tokyo where there are not enough beds”, it seems that they are beginning to install what is called a “hospitalization waiting station”.

Maybe you think “Waiting station for hospitalization? What’s that?” , right…?
Apparently, it is set up in the hospital, and a nurse is stationed 24 hours a day to constantly check oxygen administration and condition …!
And also it seems that doctors also give medical examinations as needed.



Already … it’s okay to treat it as “hospitalized” …


Am I the only one who thought like that? lol

Even so, it seems that there are two places in Tokyo, but both have only “16” and “20” beds
I wonder if it’s not enough …



And the topic has changed and it is an overseas topic, but in Australia it seems that they will consider relaxing the restrictions on  COVID-19 measures due to the vaccination rate!
(* Australia seems to be currently locked down)

In Japan, Prime Minister Suga and the Minister in charge of economic revitalization Nishimura have recently said same thing…!


But … Japan … Don’t get wrong …?


(Australia infection status)



Even though “Australia’s infection does not stop”, “just” like above …


(Infection situation in Japan)



↑Japan … You’re not at the stage where you can talk about that dimension …?



By the way, in terms of overseas topics …
It seems strange that the number of infected people in India has dropped sharply recently … ↓


According to a survey by the Government of India, the “Antibody prevalence” in the eight major states has reached 70%, and it is possible that they have acquired “herd immunity” …!


By the way, herd immunity means that
 ”If ○% of the people in the city have immunity, the infectious disease will be resolved.”

The point is that when three people are walking around the city and one of them is infected, if the other two are immune, the infection will not spread!
(* In this case, herd immunity 66%)


what does this mean…


In other words, “the infection has exploded so much that most people are already infected” …!
Facts that are too scary …!


By the way, the cumulative number of infected people in India is about 32 million, but…




India’s population is about 1.3 billion …
70% have antibodies (= infected) …
About 900 million people should have been infected …! ??


It’s a terrible calculation …
This is probably … probably … “32 million people are lucky to be in the hospital, and the remaining 860 million aren’t counted because they weren’t in the hospital.”

If this is the case, it’s too scary …!



By the way…


The number of infected people in India on August 22 was 25,420
The number of infected people in Japan on the same day was 22,302

It’s almost the same …




Who made Japan so terrible? .. .. .. !!





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…




By the way, in Vietnam

Since the spread of the infection does not stop, it seems that the army is being put in to strictly prohibit going out …!


“By putting in the army, the government have clearly shown to the public that we will continue to take strict infection control measures.”


The infection situation in Vietnam is … ↓


↑ It is expanding rapidly and requires considerable caution …
However, the number of infected people is currently about 10,000 per day …


And the population is about 100 million …



Well …
Japan is similar population …
The number of infected people per day is about 20,000….





Please be careful when you go out!
