(*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)






It wasn’t in time for yesterday’s summary, but it seems that more areas covered by the state of emergency have been added …!

Of the areas covered by the “Priority Measures to Prevent Spread” displayed in ↑, the areas in red below seem to be upgraded to a state of emergency

Priority measures such as prevention of spread
Target area : Hokkaido, Ishikawa, Fukushima, Aichi, Shiga, Kumamoto
           Miyagi, Yamanashi, Toyama, Gifu, Mie, Okayama, Hiroshima, Kagawa, Ehime, Kagoshima



And “Saga / Miyazaki” will be newly added to the target area of ​​”Priority measures such as spread prevention”.


The government should no longer declare a state of emergency nationwide…


In Japan, one in two people should have completed at least the first vaccination, but


(“Number of vaccinated people in Japan”)



the spread of the infection is likely to continue …


By the way, 

↑it seems that the cumulative number of vaccinations in the world has reached 5 billion!


The world population is about 7.7 billion, so vaccination is progressing considerably worldwide!



Meanwhile … I tweeted the breaking news yesterday, but …



↑ It seems that “Lambda stock” was found again in “Airport quarantine”
It’s still better than it was announced properly, but there was just such news about it!

According to the North and Central American media “Daley Guardian”, the vaccine seems to be ineffective against the world’s worst “lambda strain” …


Such scary variants are landing in Japan one after another … too scary …!



It’s an important time when we still have to be on the highest level of caution … but what Japan is doing is the Fuji Rock Festival!

It’s already a messed up country, really … (dry laugh)

It seems that the total number of visitors was 35,449 in three days.


By the way, the organizer announced, “No infected person was reported at the venue during the event.” (dry laugh)


There have already been reports of poor physical condition of visitors on SNS, but it would be nice if no one of the visitors was confirmed to be infected for the next week or so, not just during the “holding period”!



This is the last article of the day … The government is saying this after the beginning of the week … ↓

Prime Minister Suga
“we will promptly establish a system in which COVID-19 patients can always be in contact with the health center even if they are being treated at home.”

Minister for Economic Revitalization Nishimura
“The most important thing is to secure a system that can receive the necessary medical care.”


↑They are wrong! The most important thing is to reduce the number of infected people!
… , right?


It seems that you are not thinking about the spread of infection anymore, only about the medical care provision system …!

However, as a result, there are no beds in the hospital, and many people die during home medical treatment …


In the first place, there is no such thing as “I can’t get in touch when I’m being treated at home” …!



Hmmm… , this government …!





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…




A special feature was set up in an NHK news article about “home recuperation”!

In the case of a female office worker in her 50s who had a chronic disease and had been vaccinated twice but was infected ↓

①Health center “Food arrives in cardboard, so don’t worry.”
  →It actually arrived 3 days after the end of the medical treatment period

②Ask the health center to deliver a pulse oximeter that measures the oxygen saturation in the blood.
  →Not delivered

③She managed to spend her groceries and necessary items outside the room by a family living nearby.

↑If a patient undergoing medical treatment at home does not have a family nearby … it would be hopeless …



As you can see, COVID-19 is still a “disease that should not be infected”, but the government doesn’t seem to think anything about getting people infected …


Hmm………….! :<





Please be careful when you go out!
