◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆






The number of infected people in Tokyo has fallen below 1000 for 3 consecutive days!

After all, this week we had more than 1000 people on only two days, Sunday and Wednesday.

And even if you look at the total for the week, it is steadily decreasing!

↑Currently, it feels like it has finally decreased to the level before the start of the consecutive holidays in July …





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

(Around 15:00 on Sep 18, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)

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

(*緊急事態宣言 東京・大阪など19都道府県延長へ 30日まで – Yahoo!)
(*緊急事態宣言 19都道府県で延長を決定 今月30日まで 政府 – NHK)







(As I expected lol)
Also, it seems that the government is making meaningless calls again … 

well … but they can’t help but say … (dry laugh)

 “Please refrain from going out or moving unnecessarily for the next three consecutive holidays!”

I would like them to take some more meaningful measures …!



And today there were a lot of overseas topics!



In Italy, all workers are required to have a vaccination certificate or a negative certificate, and also to show it at restaurants, commercial facilities, transportation, etc.!

By the way, the current vaccination rate in Italy is 68% …

The dire situation in Italy was often in the news last spring-summer, but it may be that Italy, which has had such a dire experience, can take such strong measures!


(*Situation at the time of the first wave in Italy: Past article 2020/06/04 + 2020/05/25 ↓)



Brazil ↓

On the other hand, Brazil is considering stopping vaccination of minors because of suspicions about deaths and side reactions related to vaccination …!

The official reason for the suspension has not been clarified, but it seems that the following are cited as reasons.
①1545 side reactions have been reported for all vaccinated persons.
②A 16-year-old woman died after the first vaccination this month (it is said that there is no causal relationship …)


However, Brazil is also a country where the president said,
“Don’t refrain from going out!”
even during the first wave in early spring, so it’s a little unclear what will happen … (dry laugh)


Israel ↓

In Israel, booster vaccination (third vaccination) was carried out early, but it seems that the spread of infection still does not stop …
・Start of booster vaccination for elderly people from July
・From August, the target age will be expanded to 40 years old and over.



Therefore, it seems that Israel is preparing for the “fourth vaccination (improved vaccine for variant strains)” …!


Unlike the politicians like Japan who say, “I don’t want to be criticized, so I take sloppy measures!”,
the important people in Israel are eager to defeat COVID-19 by force …!
(In Japan, forced lockdown is disliked by people who do not want to refrain from going out.)


Honestly … I envy Israeli people … lol



In such an overseas situation, on the other hand, in Japan …, vaccination of minors is gradually spreading …!

In today’s article, “Vaccination will start even for third-year junior high school students in Tokyo who are about to take the high school exam”!

It’s an exam that may decide student’s life, and they don’t want to be swayed by COVID-19…!


And it seems that the government is considering developing such a system for building a vaccination certification system! ↓


①Read “my number card” with a smartphone
②Enter your PIN
③The vaccination certificate with QR code is displayed on the screen.

(*サンプル画像 – 阪南市)

Well, it sounds easy …
But… absolute radio communication is essentia, rightl …! ??
What if it’s out of service? ?? ??

If you don’t communicate, you won’t know when you finished vaccination …


府The government has a good reputation for application development like “CoCoA” (ironically lol), and I’m looking forward to what kind of system it will create!

(*CoCoa =An app for exploring the rich contacts of COVID-19 developed by the government. In fact, all Japanese people know that there was a problem that could not be explored for months. lol)




↓ 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…




You will have another music festival at this time of year! ??
It’s a controversial “Super Sonic” …
(September 18th and 19th)

It seems that two groups of artists, “KYGO” and “FRANK WALKER”, suddenly contacted us on September 13th to cancel!

The organizer seems to say,
“I wasn’t satisfied with the notification just before this, so I had a discussion for a day, but I couldn’t change the situation.”



It’s just a matter of having fun with everything after ending COVID-19, but it seems to be quite difficult …






Please be careful when you go out!
