The number of infected people in Tokyo is about half that of last week …!

*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)

*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!”)

t seems that the third vaccination (booster vaccination) has been officially approved in the United States!

However, it seems that it was a conditional approval ↓
For people aged 65 and over + people at high risk of aggravation
②It was also considered to target 16 years old and over, but since data for 16 years old and over is not available, it will be postponed.

It is impossible for the virus to select only elderly people to infect it, so it would be nice if they could collect data as soon as possible so that people under the age of 64 could vaccinate it …



And on the other hand, in the UKit seems to ease entry even further …!

It seems that the quarantine period is not necessary if there is a “vaccination certificate” for entry from countries other than dangerous countries where the infection is spreading …!

As expected, it’s Britain with “No Guard tactics”

Of course, entry from Japan to the UK will not be quarantined!
… In return, “Please relax the entry from the UK to Japan!”
I just pray that it won’t be … but … ↓


It seems that Japan has decided to set the waiting period (currently 6 to 10 days) at the accommodation facility of the quarantine station at the time of entry to only 3 days from September 20th tomorrow …

There is a statement that “We will ask passengers to wait at home until 14 days have passed after that”, but how many people do you think will protect it …



More than that … In the first place, you shouldn’t be quietly changing what is important …(angry)



As soon as the number of infected people decreases, the Japanese government will alleviate it and explode the infection again…

Is the Japanese government a virus minion anymore?


…Oops rant … lol



Last but not least … I was worried about the number of seriously ill people in Tokyo these days, so I made a graph! ↓


(Changes in the number of severely ill persons by age group in Tokyo)

(*ex “50代” = “in their 50s”)

↑ It is a graph from the end of July around the beginning of the 5th wave of infection explosion, but this time it seems that it was really easy for people in their 50s to become extremely ill …


What we can see from this graph is as follows.↓

“COVID-19 becomes more dangerous as we get older.”
(Not in the category of “65+”)
“Since the oldest working generation is in their 50s, there are an extremely large number of people in their 50s.”
(The working generation goes out every day, so the risk is high)
“And the risk of the virus itself is increasing with mutations, so the rate of severity to the younger generation is gradually increasing.”



The definition of “65 years old or older” itself may be already “strange” …

(By the way, the definition of elderly people = 65 years old or older seems to have been decided in the 1950s, so it is possible that it is no longer suitable for the times.)





↓ 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…




NHK has also conducted a poll on COVID-19!
… But this time they used “LINE Research”, so I started reading the article with great expectations for the results!
(* Usually, respondents’ social status and ideas tended to be biased due to telephone research, etc.)



I was shocked to see the result of the first questionnaire … (dry laugh) ↓


(Q. How scary do you feel about the new coronavirus?)

(* “Not scary at all” = 1.1%)


↑This is no longer an awareness survey on COVID-19, but an awareness survey on people who are wary of COVID-19 … (dry laugh)

Well … Certainly, if you are not interested in COVID-19 in the first place, you will not participate in such a questionnaire … (dry laugh)


In order to get the overall statistics including those who really go to the town and those who are drinking at the izakaya, it seems that we have to do a street survey to the people who go by, not by phone or LINE!






Please be careful when you go out!
