(9/04) Tokyo today about COVID-19 [Fixed Value]




***  This article is written with the help of Google Translate… ***



2362 ( -177 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 2021/09/04 19:00 /  NHK NEWS WEB)



◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆





Also Today, the number of infected people in Tokyo is still lower than last week, and it ended up being a week of decline throughout the week!


The possibility of a full-scale decrease is gradually increasing!


And the total for one week also decreased for two consecutive weeks



…… After all, is the behavior of the general public, such as “consecutive holidays” or “summer”, the cause of the spread of the infection?


Even so … the number of people increases and decreases considerably …
You can see how the government and the general public are out of control of the infection … (sighs)




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

(Around 15:00 on Sep 04, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)

Swiss scholars are developing such a crazy theory that
COVID-22 will come out next year, a combination of the serious parts and the serious parts of the (COVID-19) mutants” (dry laugh),
(*COVID-22 may be really coming around this time next year … )


First of all, from the topic of COVID-19 that was yesterday and today!

It seems that “Mu stock”, which has been a hot topic recently, seems to be already mainstream in Colombia.
It is said that the third wave of Colombian infection (April-June) was caused by this mu strain …


That means … It seems that it’s already in Japan, where the front door is fully open


Also, according to the latest domestic infection status report, the positive rate seems to have dropped slightly in the Tokyo metropolitan area …!


↑It’s still too expensive, but …

In the first place, it is abnormal when it exceeds 10%, so I would like it to be 5% or less as soon as possible …


And at the large-scale vaccination center in Osaka, Tokyo, priority reservation slots for young people at the Tokyo venue started accepting reservations at 18:00 on September 3, but it seems that the 22,000 reservation slots were filled in just two hours …!

Even young people want to get vaccinated!
(*There is a lot of news that young people are negative about vaccination, so … dry laugh)


By the way, regarding antibody cocktail therapy, which has become a hot topic recently, 102 people have been treated in Tokyo, and 82 people have recovered or stabilized their symptoms!
About 80% of people were effective with antibody cocktail therapy!

This may be the solution for mildly ill patients!


Also, Dr. Fouch, the US government’s chief adviser on COVID-19, said, Three times vaccinations may be the norm to maintain high efficacy in the long run”!


But … six months later, people may say that “We need vaccination once every six months” …
dry laugh


Because flu vaccination is so!
(Influenza is also a member of the same coronavirus)



And today’s main topic is here ↓

This is a recommendation from the government subcommittee on “Daily life when vaccination is successful in Japan”!


●Vaccination rates that may eliminate the need to declare a state of emergency
 (=Vaccination rate that the infection will never spread again)

Age Target rate
60s or over 90%
40s~50s 80%
20s~30s 75%


In such a case, it seems that there is a possibility that the super-spread of infection can be prevented simply by “wearing a mask” or “avoiding crowding”.


And the new word “vaccine / test package” has come out!

“vaccine / test package”
measures for people who have “low risk of infecting others” such as those who have been vaccinated or who have been confirmed to be negative in the test

(*It is just one “plan” in the proposal)


What you can do with the “vaccine / test package” (draft)
・Visit at medical institutions and facilities for the elderly
・Movement across prefectures
・Face-to-face class at university
・Expanding the range of activities for club activities


Even “vaccine / test packages” are difficult to permit or should be considered (draft)
・drinking party
・Employees of large-scale commercial facilities and karaoke stores


(Other recommendations from the government subcommittee)


Government subcommittee

“The consensus of experts is that even with advanced vaccination, it is difficult to relax all restrictions on its own.”

Vaccination doesn’t mean you can do anything freely.”

“We have to control the infection by detecting signs of spread and using apps. We need to continue basic measures for the time being even after vaccination has progressed.

“I want you to have a national discussion using the recommendations as a starting point.”

“In Japan, vaccination is not compulsory, only those who wish.”

“There should be a national debate about how much the unvaccinated people should accept the disadvantage of being restricted.”

“We are not asking for zero infections. I would like everyone to discuss whether it is acceptable if there is some infection but it does not affect the medical pressure. “

“Even if all applicants are vaccinated, the state of herd immunity is not possible for the time being. Simulations have shown that measures must be continued even if vaccination progresses.”



↑They say a lot of important things …


But … but …


I can’t remove the mask even if the vaccination is widespread! ?? ?? !! ?? !! (Cry)


I wanted to know the goal of this “COVID-19” …
but they seems to say that “you are the ones who decide the goal!”


Hmm … I wanted them to have zero infections, or rather the two below, but
①I want to erase COVID-19 from the world
②Or I want to make it as dangerous as influenza
At least it seems impossible until quite a while …


What is this too sad fact ……………


I still have a lot to say (lol), but
I’m tired of putting it together, so that’s all today…


Oh, by the way …

●Vaccination rate that is likely to be reached

Age Target rate
60s or over 85%(-5%)
40s~50s 70%(-10%)
20s~30s 60%(-15%)

(* () Is the difference from the above ideal value)


↑This seems to be pretty tough …






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…




Hmm …! I’m tired of summarizing today! lol
COVID-19 is quite awkward …!


Who is the one who really made COVID-19!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(angry)
I’m not the only one who thought! lol


Four music groups have made crazy statements such as “The vendor who held the event without taking proper infection control is NOT a member of our group!”, but about holding the event etc.,
the government subcommittee says, “Please discuss with the people!” …


There are politicians because the people can’t argue, so if the people try to argue with the people, only the selfish person wins …right?

That’s why we’re in trouble now that the infection hasn’t stopped …



Seriously, please give us a solutionnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn! 🙁






Please be careful when you go out!
