*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)

*By the way … the specific measures … are the same! (dry laugh)

By the way, I completely forgot … but the state of emergency was extended from September 13th yesterday …! (dry laugh)

“Japan’s state of emergency” that doesn’t really make sense …

But … it’s possible that the spread of the infection would have been ridiculous without a state of emergency … so, it’s a “Schrödinger’s cat” … lol





And there was some surprising news

Of the corpses handled by police across the country in August, 250 were infected with the new coronavirus …

(Although not all people died of COVID-19, but)
If most of them died of COVID-19 … it’s too scary …



And there was such news about vaccines! ↓

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare will newly pay 37 women aged 21-87 to treat adverse reactions from vaccination!

It seems that they developed a strong allergic reaction such as anaphylaxis after vaccination …

Regarding this, it seems that the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has also set up a specialized subcommittee so that medical expenses can be paid promptly!


By the way, regarding the vaccine …

神奈川 鎌倉市の接種会場でファイザー製ワクチンに異物 – NHK

The other day, “foreign matter contamination in the Moderna vaccine” became a big problem, but it seems that a foreign matter was found in Pfizer’s vaccine container this time in Kamakura City, Kanagawa Prefecture …

“White floating matter” was found in one container …
By the way, it seems that it was not found in other containers, so it seems that the vaccine that had no problem was used as it was.


I’m really curious about the survey results, but it seems that Pfizer will analyze it!



And the last topic is about the Japanese economy …!

It seems that there were many large companies in all industries who thought that the economy was improving from July to September …!
(*Business conditions index (BSI) of all industries of large companies has increased by 3.3)

Even during the state of emergency, if there are so many people in the city, the economy will improve …!


Business is good ← Good news
It’s supposed to be … but it’s a wonder that I can’t be honestly pleased! (dry laugh)




↓In addition, there was such an article! ↓








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!




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…




By the way, regarding the vaccination status in Japan,

it seems that the number of people who have completed vaccination twice has finally exceeded half of the total population! (50.9%)


It is said that about 64 million people have completed both times, but since there are about 36 million elderly people aged 65 and over, it will be 28 million people other than the elderly (≒ working generation)!


(*東京新聞/ 2021/03/15)


In addition, there are about 5 million medical staff, so there are about 23 million “Ordinary people” who have been vaccinated twice …


The population of the working generation in Japan is about 68.3 million,
(about 63 million excluding about 5 million medical workers?)
so, considering that only 23 million out of 68.3 million people have been vaccinated twice, it seems that it will take a little longer.


It’s a rough calculation (dry laugh),but
even if I roughly calculate it, only one in three people in the city has completely completed vaccination …
It seems that we still need a mask when you go out …





Please be careful when you go out!
