◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆






Today is Wednesday, which tends to increase in the week, but the number of infected people in Tokyo is not much different from yesterday!


Maybe it’s because of the vaccine or because the positive rate has dropped …
I’m glad that today isn’t affected by last week’s Silver Week!




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

*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)

(*緊急事態宣言 19都道府県で延長を決定 今月30日まで 政府 – NHK)







After all, the government decided to cancel all “state of emergency” and “priority measures such as prevention of spread” without seeing the “effect of consecutive holidays” …!

I summarized the main points at the press conference of Prime Minister Suga about that ! ↓


Prime Minister Suga

“The current situation meets the criteria for cancellation.”

“Restrictions on eating and drinking will be gradually relaxed.”

“Vaccination and neutralizing antibody can prevent aggravation.”

“In the future, it will be important to be compatible with daily life on the premise of the existence of viruses.”

“We will actively consider easing traffic to and from foreign countries.”

「the premise of the existence of viruses」
「compatible with daily life」
「prevent aggravation」

Mr. Suga seems to think of COVID-19 as much as influenza …


It is “only God knows” whether the spread of infection will occur again in the future, and whether the number of infected people and the risk level will be the same as those of influenza every year from October 1st.



And Mr. Omi, the chairman of the government subcommittee who approved the full cancellation, said that…

…  the full cancellation was OK under the following five conditions!


Chairman Omi

“Removal of behavioral restrictions should be done carefully in stages.”

“Countermeasures against infectious diseases utilizing science and technology and further strengthening of medical supply system”

“If there is a sign of the spread of infection, respond flexibly so as not to cause serious medical pressure.”

“Avoid crowded areas, ventilate, and refrain from yelling.”

“People get more vaccinations”

…For better or worse, it ’s “as usual”… (dry laugh)



And there are a lot of forces trying to sprint immediately after the full release!

Government “We will actively support the sale of Go To Eat meal tickets!”


Travel agency “We are considering a new campaign on the condition that vaccination has been completed twice!”


Government“Even if an emergency declaration is issued again, please be assured that alcohol will be served OK!”



I’d be happy if the infection really calmed down and I could really get back to normal life, but until now we’ve been involved in re-spreading the infection as a result of these risk-free behaviors like above. So, I want the government to make “transition period” or “wait-and-see period”



By the way,

it seems that the mainstream of each prefecture is to relax the regulations only for restaurants that have been certified to have good infection control measures.
(* Still under consideration)
However, now that even “priority measures such as prevention of spread” are gone, “whether there is a legal basis” = “whether everyone will comply” is a little unclear …
Do they intend to get people’s attention with the cooperation money?


I will introduce them all together as soon as the details are known!



And Prime Minister Suga has created an “atmosphere of a man who has done his job” for some reason with this “total cancellation”!


A man who misunderstands that he has completed the mission perfectly

“It’s been a year since I took office as Prime Minister, and I’ve been devoted to fighting  COVID-19.”

“There were days when I was worried, but the answer I arrived at was [vaccine] and [therapeutic drug].”

“I was criticized for saying that there was a clear light in the long battle with COVID-19, but now the effect is clear.”

Hmm … I can’t say anything for us who have been suffering” from the government for over a year and a half …!


“You did your best! Thank you!”
I would like to say that, but to say that, too many people have died, and too much has been lost and too much time in our “only one” life …



Today’s final summary is … Conspiracy theory in such an atmosphere! lol

I don’t know if the “plan” was actually implemented, but three or four years ago, a non-profit research institute in the United States and the Wuhan Virus Research Institute in China plans to “manipulate the coronavirus gene to increase its infectivity to humans and release it into the cave where bats live,” and applied for a grant from a research institute of the US government. It seems that he was doing …!

Of course, the US government’s research institute seems to have refused …


… It’s kind of like super gossip (lol), but the article is…

“Newsweek” ‘s article…
I’m wondering if it’s true or not …!





↓ 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, there was such a groundbreaking news!

Shionogi Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. has started clinical trials of the final stage of a “Drink-type medicine” for the new coronavirus!


By the way, the content of the remedy is “expected to suppress the growth of the virus, prevent its aggravation, and improve symptoms such as fever and cough”!


Pfizer and Merck in the United States are also in the final stages of clinical trials for oral-type therapeutic agents!
It is said that “It is also supposed to be taken when you notice an infection in your family.”


Oral medicine is easy to use, so I have high expectations!






Please be careful when you go out!
