3081 ( -500 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 2021/08/29 19:00 /  NHK NEWS WEB)



◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆





The number of infected people in Tokyo … There will be fewer days than the previous week!


… However, there is still the possibility that “it just returned before the two consecutive weeks of consecutive holidays that exploded the number of infected people”, so I can’t say anything without looking at the numbers for this week’s week …!



However, I hope that it will be reduced to around “before the four consecutive holidays in the latter half of July”, but still … a little less than 2000 people … 




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

(Around 15:00 on Aug 29, 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.


*Since the number of new infections in Tokyo seems to be almost the number of the previous day,

(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)

(*【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 infection situation in Japan remains terrible even after the Obon, but

There is a man in his 80s who says “I want to vaccinate for the 5th time as soon as possible” after illegally vaccination 4 times using the medical worker quota + elderly quota, and

at this time, there are groups that hold outdoor festivals that say ” (highly effective in preventing infection) non-woven mask NG” and “alcohol is OK” …,
(It seems that it was held last year as well)


It seems that the Japanese people are still free to act…



Also, yesterday I introduced the “long line at the large-scale vaccination site for young people in Shibuya”, but 

it seems that it was actually like this …! ↓



↑ Even young people, whose infection rate is much higher than other generations, are so worried about infection that many people want to get vaccinated …!



With such “vaccination”, it seems that the overwhelming majority of people now trust in safety and efficacy!

Result ↓

<About Safety and reliability of vaccines>

●January this year
 ・「Trust」 - 57%
●This time (late July)
 ・「Trust」 - 68%


(Although I think it’s still low, though …)


Also, in the same questionnaire, only 7% of the respondents answered that “the infection has gradually calmed down and can be dealt with” …

So, it means that 93% of people think that it’s a terrible infection, but the city is full of people …!


(August 28, 15:00, Tokyo / Shibuya Scramble Crossing)



By the way, it seems that 1002 people have died after vaccination.


Pfizer ― 19.6 people per million
Moderna - 1.2 people per million


Regarding “death after vaccination”, it is reported that two people have died in “Metal fragments mixed in the modelna vaccine container”, which is currently a big problem.

It seems that two people in their thirties have died in the “vaccine produced on the same production line, which is different from the lot where metal pieces were confirmed to be mixed”.


①38-year-old man
  →Vaccination on August 15 →Death 3 days later
②30-year-old man
  →Vaccination on August 22 →Death 3 days later


Regarding this, Takeda Pharmaceutical Company, which undertakes distribution from Moderna, said in an article, “Currently, the investigation by Moderna is ongoing, and as soon as the results are known, both companies will endeavor to disclose information promptly,” but ↓

In fact, it seems that Takeda Pharmaceutical Company did not report to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare until August 25, even though it was aware of “foreign matter contamination” on August 16.

The company seems to make an excuse for that, “We didn’t know if it would affect my health” …


For that reason, it seems that many people have been vaccinated with the vaccine, which has been a problem since August 16th, so I hope that the two people in their thirties who died will be able to quickly clarify whether the cause is “foreign matter contamination” …



And today’s last topic is a completely different atmosphere, but …

The other day, the Liberal Democratic Party, the ruling party of the Japanese government, met with two members of the ruling party in Taiwan and talked about the restraint on China, which is trying to expand its sphere of influence!


…… Well, We don’t care about that! lol


However,I was the only one who thought, “If you have a chance to talk with a Taiwanese politician, learn about Taiwan’s infection control!” ?! Am I the only one? !!






↑I envy Taiwannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!






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…




As for the recent infection situation in Japan, the “child infection rate” is increasing … we’re worried about the beginning of the new semester, but…

It seems that the Oita Prefectural Board of Education has begun an initiative to transport high school students who go to school by train by bus!



↑I think that Tokyo, where the number of children infected every day is about 500 to 1000, should emulate Oita and take such measures …


However, since the infection of children has already spread considerably in Tokyo, even if they can avoid a crowded train, there may be clusters in the bus, so it is a difficult place …


After all, “everyone’s daily PCR test before going to school or going to work” is ideal…!





Please be careful when you go out!
