The number of infected people in Tokyo has decreased by “about 1000” from the previous week on most days …!


As I saw it, it wasn’t “○% decreased”, but “5000 → 4000 and 4000 → 3000, always 1000 for some reason” …


What does this mean …?

According to the Japan Tourism Agency, the number of Japanese guests staying in Japan in July was 3,070,000, which is the number since November last year when the “GoTo Travel Campaign” was held!

The point is that everyone was playing like “Go To” in July … (dry laugh)

Speaking of November last year, the month that was the starting point of the “year-end and New Year infection explosion” …


On the other hand, July this year is …


↑the month that was the starting point of this hellish “fifth wave” …

It’s similar … 


By the way, 30 million people are still 40% less than last year (before COVID-19)!



Meanwhile, terrible movements are emerging in Kanagawa!

As I saw, Fujisawa City and Odawara City seems to issue the “gift certificate with premium” in such a terrible infection situation…!
It is said that the recruitment of purchase applicants will start in November …but…


By the way, the Minister for Economic Revitalization Nishimura said like this,

Nishimura Minister for Economic Revitalization

“I would like experts to present the relaxation of restrictions when vaccination has progressed to a certain extent by September 12th.”


Both Kanagawa Prefecture and Minister Nishimura feel that they think that “if you get vaccinated, everything will be solved!” …!

The important thing should be “after confirming that the infection situation has really settled down after vaccination” …

At this rate, I’m too scared that they say, “I haven’t confirmed the effect of the vaccine, but the vaccination rate has increased, so it’s okay ~ ♪” …!



And today’s last topic … but
The death toll of “65” on August 31st yesterday … seems to have been the highest in the 5th wave …!

Certainly, even if you look at the data I summarize every day … ↓



The government is proud to say, “Vaccination of the elderly has progressed and the mortality rate has decreased considerably!”, but
looking at the “number of people” rather than the “ratio”, it is quite close to the peak of the spread of infection so far …


If my dear family and friends died in COVID-19 while the government didn’t do anything … I’m probably …can’t stay very calm …!



I hope COVID-19 will disappear from the world as soon as possible so that it doesn’t happen …!






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.

Also, for “Does the vaccine work for mutant strains?”, See this table ↓

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…




Well, after putting it all together …

It’s September!
How was everyone in August?
About Infectious disease … It was “hellish August” in Japan … (dry laugh)


September is generally a social “off season”, so expect the infection to subside!
(When the number of people decreases and the shops are not so profitable)






Please be careful when you go out!
