*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.

   →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! ↓

It was decided this week to completely cancel the “priority measures such as spread prevention”, but of course this is not only the decision of the Japanese government but also the result of the governors of each prefecture saying “I don’t need it anymore” …!


Governor Koike of Tokyo said something like this …


Governor of Tokyo Koike

“The measures will be lifted, but the virus has not disappeared.”

“Avoid the risk of infection. Stop banqueting for cherry blossom viewing. Just walk.”


↑Despite of such a situation, is it really the state where it can be released …?
After all, it seems that the infection has spread forever …


Really, the government only has to completely reduce it once and reset it …



Under such circumstances, yesterday in this summary article, I summarized “Is the infection really calming down?”, but…



each news site is gradually picking up “Infection situation in Japan where the decrease is slow”…!

NHK used a graph like this to express the slowness of decline. ↓


(Changes in the number of infected people in Japan)


It is an analysis that the 5th wave decreased by 90% in one month from the peak, but the 6th wave still decreased by only about 45% even one month after the peak …!


By the way, it seems that the expert meeting of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare
(←It has a reputation that I personally do not understand the meaning of its existence lol)
analyzes this “slowness of decrease” as ↓!


<Analysis of expert meetings of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare>

・The reason why the decrease this time is slow
 ①Due to the delay in the third vaccination of the elderly
 ②Because the infection of children continues on an unprecedented scale


… But in reality,
(Including when I didn’t even get the vaccine)
not only the 5th wave, but all the 1st to 5th waves so far, the infection has almost completely decreased in one month from the peak,
so vaccination is irrelevant, isn’t it? ??

And it was the Japanese government that left the spread of infection to such a terrible scale …


The analysis is messed up and this meeting really doesn’t make sense. .. ..



By the way, when it comes to analysis, NHK is far more effective than the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare subcommittee, the government subcommittee, and the monitoring conference in Tokyo!
NHK is quite capable of analysis! lol


Rather, NHK is quite capable of analysis!

NHK independently compares the number of infected people in each prefecture with the previous week and this week to find out if the infection is spreading!


<Comparison of average number of infected people per week>
  (*Comparison with the previous week)

*1 times or more = increase from the previous week = increasing trend

▽Aomori prefecture is 1.09 times,
▽ Ibaraki prefecture is 1.03 times,
▽ Tochigi prefecture is 1.00 times,
▽ Gunma prefecture is 1.07 times,
▽ Kagawa prefecture is 1.03 times,
▽ Niigata prefecture is 1.31 times,
▽ Nagano prefecture is 1.15 times,
▽ Shimane prefecture is 1.02 times,
▽ Miyazaki Prefecture is 1.12 times,


The characteristic is that “until now, the tendency of infection in large cities and rural areas is linked (same movement)”, but this time, “there are many places where infection spread signs are issued only in rural areas“…



It seems that the Japanese government has left the spread of the infection too much, making it easy for the virus to spread everywhere …





↓ In addition, there was such an article! ↓

(* There was no other news I would like to introduce today)






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…
It’s increasing every day, but there are days when it’s decreasing …!





Speaking of COVID-19 related …
It seems that 530,000 pieces of “Abenomask” cannot be found in stock … (dry laugh)
(*”Abenomask” =The mask used in the ridiculous policy that the Japanese government distributed two per person)

Was it 143 yen per sheet?
That means 143 yen x 530,000 sheets = about 76 million yen …
If it’s a normal company, it’s a big problem …



In the comment section, there were a lot of voices saying
“Isn’t someone embezzling?”, but we think
“Is it really delivered to the government in the first place …?”, right?
(dry laugh)


Originally, this policy contains a lot of suspicious companies and suspicious trading companies,
so it seems that masks are not even delivered and only money may be delivered to someone’s pocket …






Please be careful when you go out!
