◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆





The number of infected people in Tokyo is … Medical institutions were closed due to consecutive holidays, so the number of tests was 2000 for two consecutive days, so it’s not very helpful …


I just hope that the number of infected people announced will not increase after tomorrow!




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

Prime Minister Suga will make the final decision on the cancellation of the state of emergency after visiting the United States and returning to Japan later this week!

“Full cancellation” or “Transition to priority measures such as prevention of spread”
He seems to be wondering which one to use!



What? Did you ever think, “You don’t have to come back anymore!”??
It’s no good ~~~~~~ lol



And it seems that heavy traffic jams occurred during the consecutive holidays of Silver Week

It seems that there was a traffic jam of up to about 60km



…But you know…


Actually, it was last year too … (dry laugh)

Last year’s public information of a highway company ↓

(The upper row is 2020, the lower row is 2019, the length of traffic congestion at the same time)


So, it seems that the correct answer is that “transcendent traffic jams have occurred for the second consecutive year than before COVID-19” … (dry laugh)



And in the vaccine-related news

There was an article about the results of a poll on “booster vaccination (third vaccination)” by the Sankei Shimbun and FNN! ↓


<Results of joint opinion poll of Sankei Shimbun and FNN>


Q.”Do you want to get the third vaccination?”
 ●43.1%  ― Want to receive it
 ●39.9% ― Receive if necessary
 ●10.7%  ― Don’t want to receive it
 ● 4.4%  ― Do not receive even the second vaccination

 *Among those who answered that they did not want to receive it …
  ●23.1% ― Males in their teens and 20s
  ●13.1% ― Women in their 40s


Q. “Is it OK to relax restaurants and events?”
 ●58.8% ― Agree
 ●35.7% ― Opposite

 *Those who agree …
  ●Over 60% ― Males in their teens to 50s other than 30s
 *Those who disagree …
  ●59.8% ― Women in their 30s
   (*Only women in their 30s have the opposite of over 50%)


↑There is still no solution for the spread of the infection, but ………,
oh… surprisingly everyone, “alleviation is OK”…

What are your thoughts on reading this?

I think if it’s okay if there is a winning measure that can prevent the spread of infection!
(*Well … we don’t have that kind of thing in Japan yet … dry laugh)



Regarding the Pfizer vaccine, it seems that the results of clinical trials have come out that “it is also effective for 5 to 11 years old”!

By the way, the amount is one-third that of adults.


But … the Yahoo! comments section of this article was full of opinions like this!
“Don’t even vaccinate children!”
“It doesn’t make sense even for adults, even though it doesn’t work.”
“Anyway, people in their twenties and younger don’t get seriously ill, so don’t do anything extra.”
“No thank you.”
… There were so many negative opinions…!


No … Some people in their twenties or younger are getting seriously ill …


But … which one really benefits the child …?
“Children who want to be vaccinated should be vaccinated.”
“Should not be vaccinated”


The current situation is like this ↓

Grandma who can’t meet her grandchildren directly …





I would cry if I saw this photo and smile…



By the way, the infection of children is ……

I’ve been looking for details about the infection route of child, but I finally found it ↓


(Infected area between 3 and 18 years old)

(* “歳” = “yo” / “人” = “number of infected people”)
(*The locations are “school”, “children’s facility”, “exercise facility”, “home (red)”, “others”, “total”, and “unknown” from the top.)


It is a material of the advisory board of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, but in fact, it seems that the infection route is overwhelmingly domestic(home) infection


in short…
Someone in the family is bringing the virus into the home and infecting the child…



It sounds like a big deal, but …
I want adults over the age of 20 to think and act with a little more responsibility, not just their own desires …!





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, there was also an article like this …

At the coffee shop after the store was closed, a member of the gangsters was angry that the man (58) who responded was not wearing a mask, and he used violence …


Violence is no good, but …
I don’t know the situation, but …
I can understand that feelings a little…


It was an article that I really had to be careful about the minimum etiquette (wearing a mask, etc.) to the other party in public!






Please be careful when you go out!
