◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆





The number of infected people in Tokyo has been declining all the time these days!

I hope the decline will continue this week, but from tomorrow, it’s the second half of the week (which the number of infected people announced will increase) …


It’s interesting to see what numbers come out, whether it’s a “declining trend” or “just returned before the holidays” …!




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

*From the website of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare

(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)

The operation of “Large-scale vaccination venue for young people” in Shibuya is already messy … (dry laugh)

Because “no reservation is OK”, a large line is formed and people are crowded, so it becomes a big problem, and it is news every day …

First-come-first-served basis → Lottery by visitors →

It seems that the Tokyo Metropolitan Government has made many changes as described above, and is considering changing to an online lottery this time … (dry laugh)


By the way, even at the observation room of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building and the large-scale venue of Nogizaka in Minato Ward, they seem to have started accepting reservations for the younger generation, but…

On August 30th, the first day, access was so concentrated that it took up to 3 hours to make a reservation…


What is the intention of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government to confuse that much …!? lol



And the latest domestic infection status figures have come out!

After all, what is worrisome is … “Bed usage rate for severely ill people” and “test positive rate”…!


“Bed usage rate for severely ill people”


↑High numbers continue in the metropolitan area …
By the way, 100% of Kanagawa has been eliminated, and instead Tokyo has become 99%

And also Okinawa continues to be close to 100% …



“test positive rate”

Kanagawa’s test positive rate continues to rise rather than decline …!
How far will this continue to rise …
Chiba has become over 30% before I knew it …

And Tokyo seems to have cut 20% for the time being …!


Still, the city is still good or bad, “the amount of everyday people regardless of COVID-19”, but ↓

(Around 15:00 on August 30th, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)


Recently, the news of the person who died during home medical treatment is reported almost every day …

There were two special features just by looking at the news list.



・60 women died during home medical treatment
  →Diagnosed as home medical treatment because “mild + husband in 60s lives together”
  →A woman dies while her husband in his 60s collapses outdoors and is being transported to hospital

・A Man in their 20s
  →He was diagnosed as “no hospitalization required” because he had no underlying illness, but the next day he was reported dead by a separated family member as “cannot be contacted” and was found dead at home.

And so on … it’s already … messed up …


In such a situation, Chiba Prefecture seems to have decided to cancel “watching the Tokyo Paralympic Games in school units”, but …

…I’m sorry to the players, but that is “natural”, isn’t it?


Governor Kumagai of Chiba Prefecture
“The main premise is the understanding of parents, but as many parents cannot send it out with peace of mind, we should not be particular about implementation. I am sorry for the children and parents who were looking forward to it.”


The prefectural office was also inundated with complaints about not stopping it …!





A little more … I hope everyone is afraid of COVID-19 ... It’s okay until the spread of the infection subsides, so …!






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…




Meanwhile, for the first “Dubai Expo” (October to half a year) in the Middle East, UAE (= United Arab Emirates) seems to accept all foreign tourists, provided they have been vaccinated!



I wonder if many tourists will come from Japan …


It is important that the UAE does not bring COVID-19 into its own country, but it would be nice if people from Japan would not bring it back …!





Please be careful when you go out!
