*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 ***

   →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! ↓

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





As you all know, yesterday we found the fourth “Omicron strain infected person” in Japan.

It is said that he is a man in his 50s who has traveled to Nigeria, but it seems that his nationality has not been disclosed.


However … December 4th is “the day when the suspension of flight reservations to Japan was lifted.


It feels like “…” ,right…?



For the time being, this Omicron strain is…

“Even if vaccination is completed, it is easy to get infected” = Effective reproduction number is 4.2 times that of Delta strain (?!)

Despite the above, you’re starting to hear some voices saying that it’s hard to get serious ill.


But the problem isn’t there … it’s below, right?
“High effective reproduction number = easy to get infected = increased number of infections = easy to variant”
It will also trigger the birth of the next strong variant virus, so don’t let your guard down even if it is “hard to get serious” …



By the way, booster vaccination (third vaccination) seems to be effective for Omicron strains as well!

Well … it’s natural (dry laugh)

Instead of that, I think everyone is more concerned about “how long will the effect of the third vaccination continue?” … (dry laugh)



Hmmm…the range of Omicron strains is steadily expanding, but what will happen …





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

→ As of 15:30 December 5, it seems that the number has increased to “43 areas”.
→ As of 18:00 December 6, it seems that the number has increased to “46 areas”.
→ As of 19:30 December 7, it seems that the number has increased to “49 areas”.
→ As of 18:30 December 8, it seems that the number has increased to “53 areas”.

(*↑ As of December 2, there were a total of 26 countries)



(Vaccination schedule in Japan)

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

*【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.”

↓ 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, Japanese pharmaceutical companies will apply for vaccine approval in Canada by the end of the year!

The effect of preventing the onset is “71%”, and for Delta strains (75.3%)
It seems that there were no serious adverse reactions in the final clinical trials conducted on 24,000 people …!

But … the numbers aren’t high, even if you look at the number of clinical trial participants, you can’t tell if the side effects are a little better than other vaccines.


Above all … Seriously Japanese companies are too late …


But … I hope the vaccines will flood the world more and more!





Please be careful when you go out!
