(9/08) Tokyo today about COVID-19 [Fixed Value]




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



1,834(+205 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 2021/09/08 19:00 /  NHK NEWS WEB)



◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆





Also today, the number of infected people in Tokyo has decreased by more than 1000 from the same day of last week!


During the period of spread of infection, “it increases at a stretch because no measures are taken”, but when the infection subsides (thanks to the fact that no measures were taken), “an abnormal number has increased, so abnormal number has decreased”.


Can I be happy or not …




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

(Around 15:00 on Sep 08, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)

*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.


*Since the number of new infections in Tokyo seems to be almost the number of the previous day,

(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)

*Graph of the number of newly infected people in Japan as of yesterday

(* This bar graph is up to the previous day, so today’s red bar (handwritten) is on the far right, but it’s about this …)


(*”Since the graph shows only the numbers up to the previous day, I handwritten the rightmost bar, but this is about it!”)

(*【図解】緊急事態、今月3回目の拡大=宮城など8道県追加―解除は重症者・病床を勘案 – Yahoo!)






There was such news of Japan, which is rare today!

It seems that 3710 people who were infected as of April this year in Setagaya Ward, Tokyo, were surveyed about “sequelae of COVID-19”!


<Questionnaire results>

●Those who answered that they have sequelae…Approximately 1800 (approximately half)

・ Smell disorder … 54%
・ Fatigue … 50%
・ Dysgeusia … 45%
・ Cough … 34%

・ The most common sense  in the teens to 30s was “smell disorder”
・ Fatigue was most common among people in their 40s and above
・ Others: Memory impairment, hair loss, etc.


By the way, the age-specific percentage of deaths in Tokyo in the fifth wave of COVID-19 in Jqapan seems to be like this! ↓


(*代= “in their ~~s” / 以上=”or over” / 以下=”or under”)

↑People in their 20s and 40s have died quite a bit …



Keidanren also imitated a subcommittee of the government and made strange proposals to the government!
(* Keidanren = Japan’s largest economic organization)

(Main recommendations)
・Exemption from quarantine measures for immigrants who have been vaccinated
・Medical treatment at general hospitals
・Quarantine period changed from 14 days to 10 days regardless of vaccination


… It seems that the purpose is to aim for a “society with COVID-19”, but that is not the stage yet, right?



And Nishimura, the minister in charge of economic revitalization

Minister Nishimura
“Regarding the cancellation of the declaration, we will make a decision while carefully watching the medical care provision system, such as how many people are being adjusted for hospitalization or receiving medical treatment at home.”


……Hmm? Home recuperators aren’t receiving medical care …
Do you want to reduce the number of home recuperators to 0 …?
I don’t understand the meaning …



Also, Chief Cabinet Secretary Kato

Chief Cabinet Secretary Kato
“The cancellation of the emergency dotted line will be decided by analyzing the medical care provision system, the number of seriously ill people, and the vaccination status.”


… The vaccination rate is not important, but the resulting changes in the number of seriously ill and infected people are important…



And Taro Aso, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, said as follows, despite of that it’s still in such a terrible infection situation …

(Regarding Prime Minister Suga not running for presidential election)
“COVID-19 has converged in a straightforward manner thanks to the Prime Minister and is highly evaluated in the international community.”


↑He seems to be able to say this in this terrible situation where the infection has never ended …
With the people I mentioned earlier, I think you can understand why the Japanese COVID-19 never ends …



By the way, Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare Tamura

Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare Tamura
“Regarding the cancellation of the declaration, the number of infected people and the bed usage rate are difficult by the standards so far, so we will make a final decision based on the opinions of experts.”


…Oh! ?? Is this person a little decent! ??



Everyone is worried that the infection of children is increasing in such a domestic situation.
According to this article … ↓

Schools that have extended or closed summer vacation due to the spread of infection
Elementary school…12%
Junior high school…13%

High school…19%
Special school…9%


By the way, schools that have shortened classes or distributed school attendance
Elementary and junior high school…23%
High school…34%
Special school…31%


It seems that about half of the schools in total have some infection control measures!





I’m sorry I got bitter when I was collecting articles of socially important people’s comments today …

As is often said by everyone, if all the people really get serious, COVID-19 can be eradicated from Japan by completely refraining from it for a month, so it shouldn’t really be such a difficult policy.
So, I want socially important people to be firm …!





* I couldn’t put it all up, but there was other news like this today! ↓






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…




About the “outdoor music festival that caused clusters (14 people) without taking any measures”, which has been a hot topic recently …

The government plans to cancel the grant of 30 million yen to the organizer, saying that it has broken the restriction of “subsidy on condition of taking infection control measures”!
(*The outdoor music festival held in Aichi was messed up because there was no mask, there was a lot of crowds, and they also served sake, etc…)


Well … it’s natural … (dry laugh)


Rather, if the government does “If a music group refrains from festivals until the corona is completely over, the full amount of working capital will be compensated with an advance payment!”, We would think “Government is wonderful! We love you!”


But the government doesn’t seem to be worth it …





Please be careful when you go out!
