*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.

It seems that there are still lines every day at the “Vaccination site for young people in Shibuya”, which is “OK without reservation”

It seems that the method was changed to “distribute lottery tickets to people who came between 9:00 am and 10:30 am”, but
after all, on August 29 (Sunday), there was a line of dozens of people at 7:00 am



By the way, the Minister of State for Regulatory Reform, Kono, who is in charge of vaccines for the government,

 also said that … ↓


Minister of State for Regulatory Reform Kono
“With so many people wanting to get vaccinated, it’s pretty reckless to say’no reservation’.”
“They should apply online”


Perhaps he want to say that,
“Did the Tokyo Metropolitan Government not expect such a thing? Toooo fooooool!!!(lol)” 


….. What? Recently, I’m getting have a sharp tongue …?
But … that’s right, itn’t it? (dry laugh)


By the way, Minister Kono has also dropped new information!

“I’m asking to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare ①whether it is okay to do ‘cross-vaccination’, which changes the vaccine to be vaccinated in the first and second doses, ②and as a result, whether the period of the first and second doses can be shortened. “

“We will be able to digitally display a ‘vaccinated certificate’ indicating that we have been vaccinated using an app later this year.”

The third vaccination is expected to begin in October-November for healthcare workers and January-February next year for the elderly.”


It’s full of information that is too important …!



By the way, regarding the recently talked about “problem of foreign matter contamination of Moderna vaccine”

According to experts,
“I have never heard of a serious case in which a foreign substance was contained and it affected the human body.”
“For foreign substances, check at the stage of packing the vaccine into a syringe.”
“In the first place. It shouldn’t be big enough to pass through a needle. “

…But! After all, We’re worried …, right? (dry laugh)


By the way, it seems that a foreign substance was found in the vaccine container in Okinawa as well, but …

There is a high possibility that the lid of the container was torn off when the vaccine was sucked out by piercing the vaccine container with an injection needle, and there seems to be no problem with the quality!

We’re all skeptical, but hopefully “safe vaccination” will resume at full speed!






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…




It seems that the “COVID-19 dedicated hospital” will be opened for the first time in Tokyo from the end of September next month …

It is “Tokyo Joto Hospital” in Koto Ward, but it seems that they will secure up to about 50 beds as a COVID-19 patient-only hospital by having their patients transferred.


On the other hand, in Osaka … it seems that they will finally create a “field hospital” for COVID-19 …

Governor of Osaka Prefecture Yoshimura
“We plan to build a 1000-bed field hospital in Osaka.”


A field hospital is that, a temporary medical facility for soldiers injured at the forefront of the battlefield

Does that mean …?
It seems that the situation in Japan is as dangerous as the “battlefield” now …


Still, the crowd in the city will not stop!
Everyone can be free!

…Japan is really a strange country … (dry laugh)


While joking like that … I’m not laughing at all because some people have died in the meantime …





Please be careful when you go out!
