*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)





And also today, I will summarize some prefectures that have a high number of infected people, not just in the Tokyo area.



*** Saitama ***

New infections are [3] people (*Max of up to yesterday=2170)




 ・ I couldn’t find any noticeable information today…


    * I’m sorry, but the number of people in Saitama by region comes out, but the details are often late or not come out on the day …




*** Kanagawa ***

New infections are [7] people (*Max of up to yesterday=2878)



(Individual infection information)

 ・Long-term care health facility in Yokohama City
       *Today [1] person(s) / Cumulative [37] person(s)




*** Chiba ***

New infections are [0] people (*Max of up to yesterday=1778)
   *”0 people” is for the first time since Jun 21 2020!




(Individual infection information)

 ・ I couldn’t find any noticeable information today…




*The following areas introduced until the other day will be excluded for a while.
 ①About “Osaka / Aichi / Okinawa / Hyogo / Kyoto”
   →I have summarized this for the past year, but the details of the infection rarely appear during the day.
 ②About “Hokkaido”
   →Infection is settling down



* In addition, the number of infected people in each prefecture at the present time (19:00) seems to be like this! ↓




*Graph of the number of newly infected people in Japan as of yesterday

*Today, November 28 (Sun) / [73] people


(*”Since the graph shows only the numbers up to the previous day, I handwritten the rightmost bar, but this is about it!”)









<Summary of today’s “Major News Related to COVID-19 in Japan”>




I’ll put this first today, but … ↓



↓ In addition, there was such an article! ↓



No matter where you look at the news, the topic is full of topics about the new variant “Omicron strain” …!


As I introduced in yesterday’s “Summary Article“, Japan seems to add 3 countries around South Africa to the “10-day quarantine target” in addition to the 6 countries around South Africa decided yesterday!



As I said yesterday, we think it makes no sense to take the same 10-day quarantine measures as at the time of the 5th wave, when the transcendence of messed up infections spread…



By the way, so far, this “Omicron strain” has been found outside the southern part of the African continent, but “so far” the roots of the infection seem to be mostly around South Africa …!

This “Omicron strain” has been found outside of the southern African Continent in Belgium, Israel, and Hong Kong …



<Transmission route of Omicron strains outside the African continent>

①Israel (1 person)
  →Returnees from Malawi in southern Africa
②Hong Kong (2 people)
  →(1st person) During the quarantine period after arrival from South Africa (hotel)
  →(2nd person) Room opposite the above man
            (Infected by opening the door of the room to deliver meals)

③Belgium (1 person)
  →Arrive in Belgium from Egypt via Turkey
    (No history of stay in southern African Continent)


By the way, the infection situation in South Africa looks like this … ↓






“Variant strains” usually seem to “mutate due to an error during proliferation as the infection spreads and proliferates.”
Therefore, it should be easier to develop variant strains in areas where the infection is extremely widespread, but South Africa has not spread so much yet …?


Well, why was it born …
Or is it not South Africa, but somewhere in the surrounding country that is the true source …?



Unlike previous mutant strains, this “Omicron strain” is

 on the alert all over the world so that even the important ministerial meeting of the WTO (= World Trade Organization) will be postponed …


What will happen at the end of next month if such a virus occurs before the year-end and New Year holidays at this bad timing?
(That time of last year, the highest number of unprecedented infections in the world)



Under such circumstances, Japan is …

even in such situation, sales at department stores are 1.8 times higher than last year, and the momentum is higher than before COVID-19, so they’re thinking “I will do my best for the year-end sales season!” …


Hey … is Japan stupid after all?



I hope the infection doesn’t really spread …
… Is the guideline “whether or not we can be safely exceeded during the year-end and New Year holidays ”?





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…




Also, regarding the certification of work-related accidents caused by being infected with COVID-19 during work, the government will set up special measures to reduce the burden of work-related accident insurance premiums paid by companies …

It seems that the reason is that “a company with many work-related accidents has a high insurance premium rate and a heavy burden!”, but rather than that, if they don’t do that much, companies that send employees to places with a high risk of infection will just infest …


You have to be careful not to belong only to a crazy and scary company …!
But we have already belonged to a crazy and scary country … dry laugh





Please be careful when you go out!
