*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)

In Japan, there is a lot of news that doesn’t matter, such as “Governor’s election! Governor’s election!”,
(“I don’t care” is too much to say lol)
In the UK, they have already announced a “winter plan” to prevent corona infection!

It seems that the “third vaccination (booster vaccination)” will be given to high-risk people such as those over 50 years old and those with underlying diseases, and it seems that priority vaccination will start as early as next week!

The target number is 30 million people, which is 40% of the population!


(Recent infection situation in the UK ↓)

↑The number of recently infected people is about 25,000 to 30,000 …
It’s about the same as in Japan before!


…… It’s a shame that we can now say that the number of infected people is 20,000 or 30,000, “It’s about the same as in Japan!” .. .. ..



And the current infection situation in Japan is …

Just yesterday’s article had a summary as of “September 13th (Monday)”!


(Bed usage rate for the severely ill)


Kanagawa / Okinawa, which was 100% until recently, has been resolved considerably,
but on the contrary, Tokyo seems to be still high …


(Test positive rate)

After all, it seems that the number of infected people in Tokyo decreased at a stretch because the positive rate decreased extremely!
It was about 25% at the peak of the 5th wave …

And Kanagawa and Chiba are still high, and Aichi has been high since it suddenly rose …



The United Kingdom with such “firm infection control” and
Japan with “I haven’t taken any measures, but mysteriously the number of infected people has decreased!”
Despite of such terrible situation, Prime Minister Suga made a surprising statement


Prime Minister Suga
COVID-19 can never be zero, so I would like to first minimize the spread of infection, then firmly establish a system and keep in mind the safety and security of the people.”


“COVID-19 can never be zero” …

(Taiwan infection status)


The number of newly infected people in Taiwan on September 14 was only “5”.




As you can see from Taiwan, “it is possible to reduce COVID-19 to zero”, but it seems that the virus will not disappear from Japan because Prime Minister Suga, who is the top of the country, is not willing to do so …





↓ 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…




It seems that the government’s assistance to full-time employees is still generous!

・”Employment adjustment subsidy” for employees of large companies
・Leave support money (extended until the end of December) for employees of small and medium-sized enterprises (people who are not paid the leave allowance)

It seems that each of them continues to be generously assisted!

Every time I see an article like this, I think that
“Individuals who are not in the restaurant business and do not hire employees are enough?”


Recently, there are many violent crimes in Japan …
(I don’t know if it’s related or not, but)
I would like to expect equal assistance from the government without any sense of injustice …






Please be careful when you go out!
