*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.

(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)

(*【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!)






It seems that new remedies will come out again!

It seems to be a remedy developed by a major British pharmaceutical company such as “GlaxoSmithKline”!

<Details of the therapeutic drug “Sotrobimab”
・Target ― Patients with mild to moderate illness that do not require oxygen administration
         + high risk of aggravation
・Method ― Direct infusion of “neutralizing antibody”

In overseas clinical trials, it seems to be effective in reducing the risk of hospitalization and death by 79%!



And at the large-scale vaccination site of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the doctor made a selfish decision again!

A medical worker who came to the second vaccination said, “I had an anaphylactic shock at the first vaccination of Pfizer, so my family doctor recommended AstraZeneca.”
Because of such an offer, the doctor gave him a different AstraZeneca vaccine than the first Pfizer …

I don’t know “which is medically correct” because I’m not a specialist, but at present it is not recognized in Japan due to “safety” issues.

Even so, the venue of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building is all they want to do, such as vaccination for the third time without permission …

Since it is a “venue for medical professionals”, is it a venue dedicated to great people who have been selected?



Also, the unemployment insurance premium rate may increase!

It seems that the financial resources of the employment adjustment subsidy are likely to run out due to the prolonged COVID-19.

Office workers may be deducted an additional 1000 yen from their salary …



More news continues …

As you may already know, for the first time in Japan, a teenager died of COVID-19 …

There was an underlying illness, and there were multiple risk factors for aggravation …
In addition, it seems that he was not vaccinated.



And the government seems to want to relax the regulations anymore!

As recommended by Keidanren yesterday, the government seems to be planning to shorten the waiting period for immigrants from 14 days to 10 days …


By the way, isn’t it related to that …

It seems that a music festival will be held again …
This time “Super Sonic”. It seems that even overseas artists have been invited.

Moreover! Isolation only takes 3 days ☆

↑… I searched for the source for this, but it seems that there are no announcements from the government or reports of special measures other than the declaration by the organizer Creativeman.


…Does anyone know the sauce…?
Or is the creative man doing it on their own …?

Anyway … the music group is superrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr selfish …



And today’s main, it seems that the state of emergency will be extended in most areas after all …!

I don’t know why the (meaningless) state of emergency is extended even though they are only thinking about mitigation … (dry laugh)

↑Decided to extend the state of emergency except Miyagi and Okayama


Moreover, the restrictions will be relaxed even in the declared area!

①For restaurants that receive OK from the local government, sake is OK + business hours can be extended + the number of people is relaxed

②The event will be held “Declared area = Relax after limiting the number of people” + “Other than the declared area = Completely abolish the restrictions”
(*宣言対象地域でも制限緩和へ 接種進捗踏まえ政府が方針案 – NHK)



By the way, there was a proposal from the government subcommittee, but the “criteria for canceling the state of emergency” have changed after all …!


<Criteria for canceling the state of emergency>

・Bed usage rate ― less than 50%
・Bed usage rate for severely ill people ― less than 50%
・Number of recuperators ― less than 30 per 100,000 population
・Number of newly infected people ― less than 25 people per 100,000 population in the last week + There is a prospect that the number will drop to less than 15 after cancellation
・Home recuperator + adjusting ― about 60 people per 100,000 population

・The number of newly infected people has been decreasing for 2 consecutive weeks.


(*緊急事態宣言 解除の判断「新指標」 これまでとどう違う? – NHK)
(*“宣言”解除判断の新指標 政府分科会示す 医療ひっ迫重視 – NHK)

↑By the way,
in Tokyo, it seems that the declaration will be canceled even if the total number of newly infected people in a week is 3500 = an average of 500 people a day …
(Criteria for canceling the declaration → Less than 25 people per 100,000 population = 14 million people / 100,000 people x 25 people / 7 days)




There was a lot of news today + a lot of frustrating news, so I summarized it briefly, but I’m sorry if you read it and get frustrated …!

It’s complicated to have such stupid news in mind …!


One more… can I drop more frustrating fuel …? lol

Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare
“This is the reason why infections are currently decreasing!
①Many citizens are cooperating in infection control
②Vaccination is progressing to the active generation
③Decrease in the number of people in the city in the declared area
④People’s behavior changed due to news such as medical pressure
(*「感染減少も医療体制厳しい局面続く 対策継続を」専門家会合 – NHK)


DON’T lie!


By the way, regarding the number of people in the city at the same subcommittee ↓
Metropolitan area…0% to 10% decrease from the previous week
Kansai …Increase
Kyushu …Increased during the day

They prove themselves that “analysis is off the mark!” … (dry laugh)




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…




It seems that an elderly man rampaged at his clinic …


Doctor    “Good grandpa, you were negative on the COVID-19 test.”

Grandpa  ”I can’t be infected!” →He broke the front door

Doctor    “No … I said negative …”

Grandpa misunderstood the meaning of “positive” and rampaged …


It seems that he was arrested, so it seems that he had a lot of rampage…(dry laugh)





Please be careful when you go out!
