It has always been said that “The distribution of vaccines should be equal between countries !”, but today I found this news … (dry laugh)

In the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Africa, it seems that no one came to the vaccination site and returned most of the vaccines supplied with international support …!



By September 22, only about 38,000 people in Congo had completed vaccination, or less than 0.1% of the population of 86 million …!


In Africa, there are too many infectious diseases such as malaria, cholera, and Ebola that are too dangerous, so the danger of COVID-19 may be difficult to understand …!



And regarding such vaccination, in Japan …

At the large-scale vaccination centers in Tokyo and Osaka, it seems that the first vaccination period has started again from September 26th!


Period for the first time → Period for the second time → Period for the first time …
Since it alternates every month like that, it is finally possible to make a reservation for those who have not yet received the first vaccination!



↑I’ve put a link on the screenshot image above, so if you haven’t done, please hurry up! The reservation will be filled soon!??



And I would like to introduce one data today too!
Today, it’s about the “male / female ratio” of the number of seriously ill people in Tokyo!


The number of seriously ill people in Tokyo is changing like this … ↓



In fact, the number of seriously ill men is overwhelmingly higher!


(Number of severely ill people in Tokyo-Transition by gender)

(*blue:male / red:female)


↑It’s not a “temporary thing” like ↑, but it looks like this all the time during this COVID-19 disaster …

This was often talked about during the first wave, but lately it hasn’t been talked about …



The ratio looks like this … ↓

↑The percentage of men is almost 70% to 80% …!


Difference in immunity?
Lifestyle difference?
Or is it a difference in sensibilities such as a sense of crisis about illness?


…… I couldn’t find out the cause, but it seems that men are more seriously ill …!


It may be that “men are more likely to get sick”, so men should be especially careful!




(*By the way, the male-female ratio of the population of Tokyo is rather higher for females …! 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…




By the way, natto may disappear from the supermarket store again! lol



According to a paper published in an international academic journal by Professor Mizutani of Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, “We have confirmed that the proteolytic enzyme of Bacillus natto decomposes the spike protein of COVID-19 and inhibits infection“!

Moreover, of course, it is also effective for variant strains such as Delta strains!


Also, Professor Mizutani said that,
“We will study whether eating natto can prevent infection.”
“If you have natto in your mouth, you can get rid of the virus in your mouth.”



If you live a life covered with natto every day, infection may be even more difficult …!
Before going out in every morning, I will apply natto to my body …so…


Well, it just smells! lol






Please be careful when you go out!
