*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 [11] people (*Max of up to yesterday=2170)

(Individual infection information)

 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

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




 In the last few days, the news related to COVID-19 in Japan has increased considerably because of “Omicron stock” …!


 However, it only looks like “the news seems to be increasing”, but in reality, it seems that only the number of reprinted articles related to the following two topics is increasing …
①Confirmation of the first infection of Omicron strain in Japan



By the way, other than ever before, the Japanese government seems to be quicker to respond to this “Omicron stock”!
Well … that’s a matter of course, but I’m happy if the Japanese government does it … it feels strange … (lol)

Border measures are becoming more and more strict!

“Tightening regulations for immigrants from nine countries in the southern African Continent”
 →”Immigration restrictions for foreigners worldwide”
  →[new!]  “To lower the maximum number of immigrants”

Currently, the immigration limit has been relaxed the other day and the upper limit is 3,500, so it seems that the Japanese government intends to reduce it even more!


By the way, it seems that the number of guests staying in Japan in October was 1.5 times that in September!
It seems that the number of people who go out is increasing because infection situation have calmed down …!

 However … The average occupancy rate of hotels in October is 42.1%, but it is said that 70-80% is necessary for hotels to make a profit, so it’s still a long way off …

But in the meantime, the Japanese government says …

“Omicron stocks may be dangerous, so we will consider the impact when deciding when to resume the Go To Travel Campaign!”

↑They are doing what they should be doing …? Is it really “that” Japanese government…?! lol



…The Japanese government, which does not take much COVID-19 countermeasures, is fairly quick to respond this time, so the “Omicron stock” may be really dangerous! (← dry laugh)




By the way, the “effect of the vaccine” that is worrisome about the “Omicron strain” is …

According to the CEO of Moderna, he said that “(I have to wait for the data to come out, but) because the “Omicron strain” has more changes in the protrusion “spike protein” on the surface than the virus so far, so scientists say it’s not good.”



However, still in Japan …

Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare Goto
“In principle, the third vaccination is more than 8 months after the second vaccination, will not be changed!”



 it seems that the large-scale vaccination center operated by the Self-Defense Forces also ended its operation on November 30 as scheduled …


We think, “I wish I could just use it for the third vaccination …”, right ?!


By the way, the schedule for the third vaccination in Japan seems to be like this …!


2021/12 Medical workers 1.04 million
2022/01 2 million medical workers
2022/01 Elderly 610,000
2022/01 (after that) 64 years old or younger
Each municipality mails vaccination tickets to people who have passed 8 months after the second vaccination.
2022/03 Occupational vaccination


“Eight months after each person’s second vaccination, vaccination tickets will be mailed in sequence.”
↑ Isn’t this pretty big news? !!
I thought that the Japanese government would send it randomly without thinking about anything, so if they properly consider the timing, it seems that there will be no “traffic jam for reservation”!


(* From the top, “death risk”, “hospitalization risk”, “aggravation risk”)

↑ The risk is like this …


(Ratio of occurrence of each side reaction symptom in overseas clinical trials)
(Left: 2nd vaccination, Right: 3rd vaccination)

And it seems that the side reactions that everyone cares about are about the same as the second vaccination …



Well, the Japanese government seems to be responding to this “Omicron strain” rather quickly than before, but after all vaccination is “8 months after the second vaccination” …
I’m wondering what the infection situation will be during the year-end and New Year holidays …!





(Characteristics of the currently talked about Omicron strain)

↓ 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…




In Tokyo, the center of infection spread in Japan,

 it is said that there has been an “excessive move-out” for 6 consecutive months!
(* Excessive move-out = more people move out than move-in people)


After all, there are concerns about COVID-19, and in a sense, thanks to the “COVID-19 disaster”, working styles such as telework and freelance have changed,  so the need for Tokyo (Kanto region) may be diminishing…


Ah, I also want to work and live in the suburbs of Tokyo such as Nagano, surrounded by delicious ingredients!


But first of all, we should get rid of COVID-19, and then, I hope that the true daily life will come back so that many foreigners can come to Japan with peace of mind and enjoy themselves!





Please be careful when you go out!
