 (*All of the above from 2021/12/02 19:00 /  NHK NEWS WEB)



◆◆◆ World ◆◆◆






The number of infected people in Tokyo is currently low, but the Japanese who traveled abroad at such a dangerous time made complaints without accepting the risk, so Viruses are likely to be imported more and more from overseas as the Japanese government is relaxing the measures strengthened by themselves …
There are many foreigners who want to come to Japan but can’t, but the Japanese people in this case are really shameful.




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)





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




(Individual infection information)

 ・ 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 [10] people (*Max of up to yesterday=2878)



(Individual infection information)

 ・ I couldn’t find any noticeable information today…




*** Chiba ***

New infections are [10] people (*Max of up to yesterday=1778)




(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, Dec 02 (Thu) / [127] 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”>




Well, for the past week or so, the world has been ridiculously noisy …


It seems that the infection of “Omicron strain” was confirmed in the United States as well …, and

(*A person who returned from South Africa on November 22. California. He has mild symptoms but is improving.)


it seems that the spread of infection in South Korea next door does not stop …

(* The number of newly infected people on December 1 was 5123. It was the first time to exceed 5,000 and it was the highest ever).



As you all know,

 yesterday, a second infection was confirmed in Japan
According to media reports, the person entered Japan from Peru on November 27th …


The Japanese government seems to be quicker to respond to this “Omicron stock” than before, and

 the other day they completely restricted the entry of foreigners, but regarding the return of Japanese people, the government say that they have a policy of keeping the facilities designated by the government for 6 days even for Japanese who newly enter from South Korea.




The government seems to have made an unusual request to airlines not to accept new reservations for international flights arriving in Japan, so it seems that the return of Japanese people is actually restricted.


I can’t say anything because it’s the end of the year and I think some of them are planning to return to Japan and spend time with their family …

However, the company that sends employees overseas during this period is also crazy, isn’t it?


By the way, the period is one month until the end of December!



However, even the close contacts of “Omicron strain” are in this situation ↓

Close contacts of a male diplomat in his thirties who arrived from Namibia in southern Africa on November 28, are said that 30 had entered the accommodation facility for isolattion, but 10 are said, “Choose to wait at home for individual circumstances” …


I can’t say anything if I don’t understand their “that” situation, but I’m a little worried about the “individual circumstances” that should be prioritized even if they endanger the entire Japanese people …



By the way, the world distribution of “Omicron strains” up to this morning looks like this … ↓


(*26 countries in total)




An infectious disease expert (Specially Appointed Professor Atsuo Hamada of Tokyo Medical University) says, “There is a possibility of passing through the quarantine and entering the country.”

“There is a possibility of passing through the quarantine and entering the country.”


There is only the possibility of slipping through!
They should make the possibility zero!


As a nation, I really think that way …


I don’t want hell like the 5th wave to come again …

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…




Oh I have one more “good” information!
The third vaccination of healthcare workers started yesterday, December 1st, nationwide!




*【詳しく】ワクチン3回目接種 第6波に備えて1日から接種開始 – NHK

“Eight months after the second vaccination of each individual, vaccination tickets will be mailed to the general public under the age of 64.”


So far, the atmosphere is like “Humanity is safe with the third vaccination!”, but as Dr. Satoshi Kutsuna, an infectious disease expert, said, I’m the only one who feels like “we may have to be vaccinated every year, like flu shots.” ??


Well … it’s okay if we can escape from that “hell of spreading infection” … but …!





Please be careful when you go out!
