①It just returned before the two consecutive holidays in August

*Currently, Japan is refusing to enter from India, Nepal, and Pakistan in principle as a countermeasure against Indian variant stain.

(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)
(*【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!)






By the way, from August 27th yesterday, the area such as the state of emergency etc. has been expanded!

I’ve been looking for news related to it for the last two days, but there’s no particularly noticeable news … and the city doesn’t seem to change much… (dry laugh)



And same “yesterday, August 27th”, the “Large-scale vaccination venue for young people” started in Shibuya
(*For 16-39 year olds living or commuting in Tokyo / 200 people can be vaccinated daily)

It seems that 15 people were already in line when the Tokyo staff arrived at 4 am … (dry laugh)
After all, it seems that the upper limit of 300 people was reached at 7:30 am … (dry laugh)


Everyone who saw the news had expected that this venue could be vaccinated without reservation, but 


↑as expected, it was “crowded” … (dry laugh)


Tokyo Metropolitan government is too stupid … (dry laugh)
…… Oops, rant (sweat)


… That way, (dry laugh) continues, but…

Currently in Japan, the number of reservations that can be made at any vaccination venue is quickly filled up and reservations cannot be made, and reservations are not required at this venue, so I can understand the feeling that people who want to get vaccinated are lined up, but in the first place we’re angry with Tokyo, which doesn’t anticipate that …!


And the measures taken by Tokyo are after all … ↓

“From the next day (August 28th today), we will use a lottery system instead of not requiring reservations!”


What? !! They make the applicants draw! ?? !! ?? !! ?? !! ??


This is also as expected, but it seems that the Tokyo Metropolitan Government is flooded with more than 10,000 complaints, “Is there anything I can’t inoculate even if I line up?!” … (dry laugh)


Regarding such a situation, Governor Koike

Her comment around 9:15 am, after an unusual situation where reservations were closed early in the morning at 7:30 am ↓

Governor Koike
“Be careful because it’s hot.”





It seems that there was a reporter who asked such a super talented question to Governor Koike!

(About the situation where the infection in Tokyo is out of control and many people die during the medical treatment)
“Please tell us about the Governor’s perception of whether you are responsible for this terrible infection and whether you are fully responsible for the people of Tokyo.”

Governor Koike

“Since the momentum of Delta stocks is double that of the past, we have taken steps to secure beds more than ever.”

“Amid limited medical resources, we are also making requests to medical institutions in collaboration with the national government to make effective use of them.”

“We ask that you follow infection control measures while taking advantage of vaccination and antibody cocktail therapy.”

“On the other hand, we are also thinking about how to advance the economy.”

“There is no change in confronting invisible enemies in total war.”


Well … the reporter is asking you if you feel responsible and if you are responsible for the citizens of Tokyo …?


As expected, the governor of Tokyo! Only avoiding such responsibilities is good!
I hope you can make use of that goodness for infection control …! (Irony)



Last but not least … It seems that the government will subsidize 150 million yen for the Fuji Rock Festival, which has criticized the government so much!

The Fuji Rock Festival was canceled last year and was held this year, so it was confirmed that “it was ‘canceled’ last year, not ‘by’ last year, so a subsidy for the cancellation last year was given.” 


“Content Global Demand Creation Promotion Project Cost Subsidy”
→ Subsidy issued when the event is canceled due to corona damage


I see! That’s why it was held by force!

But … If the number of such businesses increases, the infection situation in Japan will become even worse …


I think that some “subsidy” rules are necessary to prevent abuse, but it is bad rule that subsidies will not come out unless it is done in this way.



If COVID-19 disappears from Japan soon, such a problem will not occur, and everyone is smiling.
What’s wrong with COVID-19 not disappearing?






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, since it is a weekend, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has also issued a “discovery of variant strains” in “Airport Quarantine”!

↑It’s a little too much, so it feels like “Continue on the page of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare!” … but this time, it seems that “Lambda stock” was not found!


Even so, out of the weekly announcements, 67 variants were discovered this week …
It’s like, “What is a variant strain?” … (dry laugh)


Almost everyone is variant strain = it’s a “normal” virus …



I’m tired of hearing the governor’s and prime minister’s “blame for delta stocks” (lol), so I’d like them to recognize that “delta stocks = it’s already ordinary stocks” and deal with them!





Please be careful when you go out!
