299(-83 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 2021/09/26 19:00 /  NHK NEWS WEB)



◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆





The number of infected people in Tokyo is unusually low every day because the number of tests is small due to the influence of Silver Week Holidays last week, but even so, around 300 people are wandering around …


I hope this isn’t the “bottom number” …




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

(* 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 …)

In the news, there is information that “the government is adjusting both the state of emergency and priority measures such as prevention of spread to be completely canceled at the end of this month” …

While the number of infected people during last week’s “Silver Week holidays” wasn’t very helpful, I’m really wondering if they decided by looking at last week’s numbers


(*Infection status in Tokyo)

(↑ After all, there were many holidays and the next day of holidays this week, so the number was unusually low …)


I would like them to make their judgment after seeing the “impact of Silver Week” this week and next week …


By the way, in Takamatsu City, Kagawa Prefecture
(*Kagawa … Areas subject to priority measures such as prevention of spread)

It seems that the provision of alcoholic beverages was conditionally OK from September 25th yesterday, and the time is until 19:30 …!


Last year, after the second wave of August settled down, people gradually relaxed their vigilance, and “Go To Travel Campaign” led to the infection situation of hell during the year-end and New Year holidays, but this year, what happens with “vaccine”…?



And such a government seems to start considering the way of approval examination for vaccines, saying  “Why was vaccine approval delayed compared to foreign countries …?”!


No … you said, “There are racial differences from Westerners in terms of safety and effectiveness.”


However, Japan has a history of “vaccines“, “vaccinations“, “phytotoxicity“, etc., so Japanese  must be cautious …


I hope this will be an opportunity (based on the results of this vaccination) to change to a policy that is “suitable for the present age” …!



And since there wasn’t much news today, I would like to share with you some of the things I personally summarized and noticed every day!


①Finally, that “strong Tottori” is back! ??


(Top 5 prefectures with the lowest cumulative number of infected people)

▽ Tokushima Prefecture has 3229 people (9)
▽ Fukui Prefecture has 3007 people (3)
▽ Akita Prefecture has 1853 people (3)
▽ Tottori prefecture has 1635 people
▽ Shimane Prefecture has 1581 people (1)

(*Number of infected people by September 25)

↑ Tottori, which was no longer “the best in Japan” before I knew it …




↑Although there are many holidays last week and it is not very helpful, the number of infected people per day = 0 people has increased!



By the way, the former “comrade” Iwate … is not in the top 5 …

is currently 6th in the generation …!
(* Iwate survived the first wave until May last year with almost 0 infected people with Tottori)



②The number of seriously ill people in Tokyo has dropped sharply during the holidays last week!


(Bed usage rate for COVID-19 in Tokyo / Top: For severe cases / Bottom: Overall)

*As of September 25 ↓

*Bed usage rate:          24.8% (←26.2%)
  for severely ill people:  26.0% (←27.6%) 
   *( )= Number of the previous day

It has decreased from almost 100% to this point!


③For seriously ill people by age group in Tokyo is …


The number of seriously ill young people, such as children under the age of 10 and those in their 20s and 30s, does not decrease …

↑I’m worried …




that’s all!

It seems that the number of infected people is small, but please be careful about infection!





↓ 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…




By the way, the target of the “third vaccination” in the United States has also been clarified!


<Target for “third vaccination” in the United States>

①Elderly people over 65 years old
②People over 18 years old who are at high risk of becoming severe
③People with high risk of infection such as medical staff and teachers


Oh … I think there are many healthy people under the age of 64 who want to get the third vaccination …



However, it is becoming the same target all over the world, so I hope it will change …!



Everyone wants to equip their armor equally!






Please be careful when you go out!
