4227 ( -477 from the day before) new infections confirmed in Tokyo.




◆◆◆ Japan ◆◆◆






(Cumulative) * The following is up to 10 worst prefectures.

*( )= increase  from the day before



 (*All of the above from 2021/08/27 19:00 /  NHK NEWS WEB)



◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆





The number of infected people in Tokyo has decreased by more than 1000 from last week, but it is still in the 4000s …


If there were people who had traveled back in time from that “Nightmare New Year’s Holidays, Tokyo in the Third Wave”, the person would be surprised and fainted when I saw the number “4000” …!
(The highest number ever before the outbreak was around 2,500 during the year-end and New Year holidays)


And I’m pretty worried that the infection rate of children is still increasing




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

(Around 15:00 on Aug 27, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)

*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.

(*【図解】緊急事態、今月3回目の拡大=宮城など8道県追加―解除は重症者・病床を勘案 – Yahoo!)






The recent infection situation in Japan, which has many areas that are still updating the highest number ever, seems to be like this in terms of data ↓

(*As of August 25)


(Bed usage rate for severely ill people)

↑ It seems that you cannot be hospitalized in 1 metropolitan area and 3 prefectures, no matter how sick you are.
Especially in Kanagawa, the bed usage rate for the severely ill is 100%, so it seems that “I can never be hospitalized” …


(Test positive rate)

There are still many places where it exceeds 20%
The situation is “One in five people to be tested is infected”

And Kanagawa … … hasn’t gone up further …?



It seems that Dr. Omi seems to be barking at the government for us every day about such a domestic infection situation, but 

today …

Dr. Omi
“The state of emergency will definitely be lifted or extended on September 12th, or extend, etc., rather than having such a first conclusion, the important thing is the tightness of medical care. “


That way, he put a light jab in the government, which is sure to lift the declaration on September 12th …!



By the way, it seems that a monitoring meeting in Tokyo was held yesterday,


“(Infection) has been out of control for weeks.”

“The medical care provision system is in a state of serious dysfunction.”

“The number of newly infected people seems to be flat, but the situation will get worse just because these terrible numbers continue. “

“Emergency situations in which infections are rampant at disaster levels have been going on for weeks.”

“It is necessary to protect yourself first, just like in the event of a disaster.”


There are terrible words lined up …!


If it is “out of control”, how can it be solved without making it controllable? It feels like, but …


… as a result, when I look at the city … ↓

(August 26, 15:00, Tokyo / Shibuya Scramble Crossing)


↑There are no restrictions on anything!
It’s out of control, but you can leave it free!



And the data was also available at the same meeting.

(Routes of people whose infection route is known)

Home    - 66.3%
Workplace - 12.2%
Facilities   -   5.6% (*including schools, hospitals, kindergartens, and facilities for the elderly)
Meal     -   2.7%


… However, “Unknown infection route” is as follows,
20s-40s ― 60% or more
20s-30s - 70% or more


So… it seems that more than half of the people are “I live freely as I don’t know where the infection route is!”, so there seems to be no sign that the infection will settle down …!



And it seems that the Japanese government’s “ONLY HPE” is “vaccine”, but about that vaccine … “Foreign matter was mixed in Moderna’s vaccine” is quite news!

It seems that foreign matter contamination has been found at 8 venues since August 16th, such as the discovery of black fine particles of 1 mm or less in the container during a preliminary check for foreign matter contamination in Saitama Prefecture.
It seems that only the products manufactured at the Spanish factory and delivered to Japan.


It seems that the vaccine has already been vaccinated or was scheduled to be vaccinated in the future at 58 universities nationwide…


And also it seems that there were vaccines to be discontinued at other occupational vaccination venues, and vaccinations were discontinued everywhere in the country, and it seems that there is a great deal of confusion


There is no solution in Japan other than vaccination under the policy of the Japanese government, so I hope that the vaccination schedule will not be delayed …!



The last topic is … About antibody cocktail therapy!

We know that “antibody cocktail therapy” = a remedy that can prevent the aggravation of the disease, but there was a special article just right where we couldn’t really figure out what it was!





It is often explained that “by using two kinds of therapeutic drugs”, but the point is that “it seems that it is just mixed and injected the two drugs …!


However, it seems that there are actually side effects …

<Vaccine side reaction of antibody cocktail therapy

(*Results of clinical trials conducted overseas on 4206 people)
→10 people had symptoms of “fever, dyspnea, low oxygen saturation, chills, arrhythmia, etc.”
→There are also reports of severe allergic reactions to anaphylaxis.
→Patient condition must be observed for 1 hour after administration


Well … to say the least, “there is a higher probability of side reactions than vaccines and there is a risk!”



After all it seems that the most important thing is not to get infected …
It’s not the case when experts and politicians say “out of controlbut leave it alone” …






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…




Vaccination in Japan seems to be a lawless zone …

This time, 15 people were vaccinated for the third time in Kyoto without permission …


For the time being, it was said that “The medical institution conducted a test to check the amount of neutralizing antibody in the applicant, confirmed the intention of the person with the low value, and gave the third vaccination.”…


Of course, many people haven’t been vaccinated for the first time yet, but …

“What are you free to use? (Angry)”


…… Oops, I’m sorry, the rant …(dry laugh)



I really want them to avoid using “a really really valuable vaccine in the world” freely by some selfish people …!





Please be careful when you go out!
