302(-263 from the day before) new infections confirmed in Tokyo.





◆◆◆ Japan ◆◆◆






(Cumulative) * The following is up to 10 worst prefectures.

*( )= increase  from the day before



 (*All of the above from 2021/09/20 19:00 /  NHK NEWS WEB)



◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆





There is no doubt that the number of infected people in Tokyo is declining, but Today’s number is not very helpful because it is a holiday today and there is no announcement of the number of tests because the medical institution is closed.


Still, the 300s are amazing!




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

(Around 15:00 on Sep 20, Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Tokyo)

*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)

Since it was a three-day holiday and it was Monday, there was very little news related to COVID-19 today (laughs), so I’ve been digging a lot of data today!


First of all … There was such news today!

According to this article, it seems that Tokyo was conducting a questionnaire to 11,700 infected people before we knew it (lol)! 


Hmm … I’m curious!


Information in the article ↓

<Questionnaire results for about 11,700 infected people in Tokyo>

・Approximately 16% → Participated in a drinking party
・Approximately 24% → Conversation with people other than those living together without a mask


…Huh? that’s all…?


What is the behavior of the remaining 70% -80% of people? ?? ??
… but there are not it in the article at all … so!
I have investigated! lol

According to this, the above content is a
“questionnaire for 11726 infected people from July 1st to August 31st”
and the results of a survey on
“their own behavior within 14 days immediately before the onset”


(↓People who participated in the drinking party)

(*16% of all respondents answered “yes” / Breakdown on the right : “代” = in their ~s) 


(↓People who had conversations with people other than their housemates without masks)

(*95.7% = Almost wore a mask / 24.1% = “yes” for conversations without a mask) 



…Seriously this is the only information! !! !! !! (dry laugh)

The article was not wrong (dry laugh)
I wanted other information …


In short, it seems that experts just wanted to come to this conclusion … ↓

(“Yes” for “Conversation without a mask or participate in a drinking party” = 32.7%)

“One-third of infected people are unmasked or attending drinking parties!”



… you guys are doing all the research with such a “conclusion first”, so you can’t control the infection …


In this COVID-19 disaster for 1 year and half, what is consistent not only in Tokyo but also in Japan is that we cannot take measures individually because “the government and the administration do not give out any information” …


(If we believe in the survey)
I’d like to know the cause of infection, even though 95% are careful about wearing masks and 84% do not participate in drinking parties …!


Also, in the same article in the Tokyo Shimbun, “Expert organization estimates that non-vaccinated people are less likely to go out at night than vaccinated people,” but that is also a bit unbelievable, isn’t it?
Actively vaccination = interested in infection control
Given that, it seems that vaccinated people are more careful about infection and refrain from going out than unvaccinated people … lol



Oh … the content is already getting longer!
There were two more main topics … but it seems that there will be little news tomorrow and the day after tomorrow, so I will summarize tomorrow…!



Oh, by the way, I introduced this summary the other day, but … ↓

(From the summary article on September 17th)


And one more,

As you all know, “Pfizer vaccine reduces the amount of antibody by 84% in half a year”, but as a matter of fact, as a result, it seems that the effectiveness is not reduced as much as the impact of the word “the amount of antibody is reduced by 84%” as shown below !!!

Efficacy of Pfizer vaccine


By the way, according to the same article …
“Vaccines have several times more antibodies than spontaneous infections.”
“So influenza vaccines are effective for half a year, but corona vaccines are still effective after half a year.”
…Well, this content is much more important, isn’t it? lol
The feeling that I knew something amazing … lol



There was also an article about the reduced effectiveness of the vaccine against the “Delta strain”!

①Moderna ― Reduced from 86% to 76%
②Pfizer ― Reduced from 76% to 42%

↑After all, it seems that the vaccine itself is becoming less effective, not only the passage of time after vaccination …!


But … 42%! ?? !! ?? !! ?? ?? !! !! ??


Due to the dual effect of “time lapse from vaccination” and “decrease in the effectiveness of the vaccine itself”, it seems that the earlier the vaccination is done, the easier it is for the infection to spread again …



There was an article related to it today!

Infectious disease specialists, or rather, Dr. Satoshi Kutsuna, who everyone knows (lol), also said about breakthrough infections like this!
(*Breakthrough infection … Infection even though you are vaccinated)

“Even experts don’t know if it’s because of the infectious Delta strain or because of the passage of time since vaccination.”

“Probably both”

…After all it was as we expected …


… But Taiwan has continued to end the infection, so…

it seems that something fundamental is wrong with Japan, not the vaccine effect or the responsibility of the variant strain.



I would like the government not to emulate Britain and the United States to mitigate it, but to emulate a country that has been successful in controlling infections …!






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…




↑hen, I summarized the conclusions neatly, but in the end, Japan looks like this (dry laugh) ↓

Representative Fumio Kishida who ran for the LDP presidential election
“I will consider resuming “GoTo” while using the vaccination certificate ☆”

(*Become the president of the Liberal Democratic Party = the same meaning as becoming the next prime minister)
(*GoTo = “Go To Travel Campaign” = Travel Promotion Policy for the People (Government Subsidy for Travel Expenses))


…What is this country! (angry)


I’ll be overwhelmed by my anger and I’ll be laughing … (dry laugh)


I’m sure he’s booked the next outbreak before he booked GoTo!






Please be careful when you go out!
