*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.

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




Perhaps no one is too interested in the priority measures such as spread prevention, but I have a feeling that the area is likely to increase … (dry laugh)


<Target areas for priority measures such as spread prevention>

・Okinawa, Yamaguchi, Hiroshima

+  Tokyo, Saitama, Chiba, Kanagawa, Gunma, Niigata, Aichi, Gifu, Mie, Kagawa, Nagasaki, Kumamoto, Miyazaki

(New! Under consideration)Osaka, Kyoto, Hyogo


The number of infected people in each region is such that no matter how you look at it, it’s the situation of  emergency declaration in Japan as a whole, but it seems that the Japanese government will continue to earn time … (dry laugh) 


By the way, this “Omicron variant” continues to flow freely from overseas because the Japanese government resumed new entry that was temporarily stopped around December 01, but in fact 84% of Japan has already been replaced…!



Recently, I often talk about the infection situation with people around me, but all of them said “The government has spread the infection without restricting entry, why should we refrain from acting? Anyway, the symptoms of Omicron variant are just like a cold, right?”
Most of them are like that …


The people are completely angry with the government and don’t seem to refrain from acting …!


The only problems are the restaurants who are taking proper measures …

(* The contents of priority measures such as prevention of spread are the same as last time …)


(* The contents of priority measures such as prevention of spread are the same as last time …)



By the way, in Europe, the number of infected people is still the highest ever, but

in the UK, it seems that the policy is to abolish the obligation to wear masks because “it has begun to decrease!” …! 

The number of people infected in the UK these days is around 100,000


… there are still many …?


I think …! (dry laugh)

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…





It seems that the number of foreign tourists in the last year is only about 240,000, which is 94% less than the year before the COVID-19 disaster …!

Really, this COVID-19 disaster has lost a part of our important one-time life, such as travel and life events …


“I want to go to a drinking party now” “I want to remove the mask now”

Two years have been wasted because of such “now” desires …!


I want to finish it soon …!
I wish this wave would be the real end …
I thought it would be the last wave if it didn’t explode so far … but …!






Please be careful when you go out!
