*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.

There wasn’t much news about COVID-19 today, so keep it short …



It seems that it is difficult to obtain a remedy for home recuperators now …!

Demand for the therapeutic drug “dexamethasone” seems to be tight, and the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare seems to have issued a notice saying “Hospitals, pharmacies, and wholesalers should stop buying up!”

Infectious disease specialist
“This dexamethasone is the only drug you can count on for home remedies if used properly.
(*Masaya Yamato, Director of Infectious Diseases Center, Rinku General Medical Center (Osaka))


Well … I think, “It’s okay if the hospital or pharmacy has it and prescribes it properly when we get infected …”, but when we are actually infected, it would be a problem if the doctor told us that we couldn’t prescribe it because it was out of stock, so I’d like them to resolve it as soon as possible…


The government should not have spread the infection until such a terrible situation …
Am I the only one who thinks so? (dry laugh)



And surprising research results on the Pfizer vaccine were announced …

According to a joint survey by Kumamoto General Hospital in Yatsushiro City and the National Center for Global Health and Medicine … ↓


<Results of investigation of antibody amount after inoculation of Pfizer vaccine>

・Survey target : 220 medical workers
・Result : 
 ①The amount of antibody reaches its peak within 1 to 2 weeks after the second vaccination
 ②It will be reduced to half after 2 months.


↑…It’s a fact that would be too scary if this were true …


I don’t know if this is definitive information or if a large-scale confirmation survey is needed, and I don’t know how likely it is to get infected if it is reduced by half, but
(Because even half may be enough to prevent infection)
in any case, it doesn’t seem like ” If you vaccinate twice, you’ll be fine for the rest of your life! “



Regarding influenza, which is the same “coronavirus”, we are vaccinated every year, so I wonder if we should also vaccinate the new coronavirus (COVID-19) once every six months or a year …, but
we don’t care about “my” opinion, so we want to know the facts as soon as possible, right?!






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…





The characters in the image and Mr. Kono who looks like a “deredere” face …
(*Deredele is how happy people are to talk to the opposite sex.)

(* Character = “Tokyo Girls Collection”)


It feels like “What’s wrong?” … lol


Actually, this is the “Tokyo Girls Collection” held online, and it seems that the Minister of State for Regulatory Reform Kono called for vaccination of young people!


He said that…
“I would like everyone to receive the vaccination when they can receive it, and we will work together to regain a fun day.”




NO! We can’t make a reservation because there are so many reservations!! (Angry)







Please be careful when you go out!
