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




Today, I found two articles by Dr. Satoshi Kutsuna, an infectious disease expert, so I would like to introduce them together.


First of all, this article. ↓

The spread of infection by Omicron variant has been almost half a year now, but Dr. Kutsuna summarized what he learned about Omicron variant infection!



<What we learned about Omicron variant infection>

◆Incubation period◆
 ・Approximately 5 days←Normal virus
 ・Approximately 3 days←Omicron variant infection
  (days until onset)
  (99% of people develop within 7 days)

◆Symptoms ◆
 ・ (76.5%) ← Sneezing
 ・ ( 74.7%) ← Headache
 ・ (70.5%) ← Sneezing
 ・ (49.8%) ← Cough
 ・ (42.6%) ← Voice faintness
  (COVID-19-specific symptom “olfactory abnormality” was rarely reported)
   (Results of a questionnaire to 63,000 people using the app)

◆Period of continuous symptoms◆
 ・ Approximately 8.9 days ← Delta Variant
 ・ Approximately 6.9 days ← Omicron Variant (shortened by 2 days)

 ・Hospitalization rate ← 25% less than Delta Variant
 ・Normal virus ← Often becomes more severe about one week after the onset
 ・Omicron variant ← Often becomes more severe after 3 days from the onset (4 days shorter) )
  ↑↑ Early treatment has become more important than ever

◆Number of cases of sequelae from infection after the second vaccination◆
 ・15.9% ← Delta variant
 ・8.9% ← Omicron variant BA.1
   (There was no difference between the delta variant and the omicron variant after the third vaccination)



There was also an article like this!


<ase fatality rate due to COVID-19>
 ・Currently 0.37%

→At one point, it was over 5%, so compared to that, the numbers have dropped considerably!


However, the same can be said for those who say, “COVID-19 is less likely to become seriously ill!”, but…↓


(Changes in the number of deaths from COVID-19 in Japan)



“If that percentage decreases, it doesn’t make sense if the number of infected people increases and the total number of deaths doubles or triples.”


And, in fact, Dr. Kutsuna also said, “We should stop taking measures against overkill infectious diseases.”


<COVID-19 infection route>

①Contact infection (touching the infected person’s hand, etc., and then touching the mucous membrane of one’s eyes or nose)
②Droplet infection (droplet generated in conversation, etc.)
③Aerosol infection (Infection can occur beyond the normal droplet flight distance (1 to 2 m) in poorly ventilated rooms, etc.)


Dr. Kutsuna

“You don’t even have to wear a mask all the time. If you’re outdoors and you’re away from people, take it off and breathe in fresh air!”

“Everyone over-disinfect the environment. For example, do you disinfect your desk or chair many times a day? It’s not a waste, but washing your hands after touching something and before touching your face is more important to get into the habit. “


Dr. Kutsuna said like this↑, but
-“Currently, as a result of the government’s dissemination of such information (you do not have to wear a mask if you have a sufficient distance from people), many people do not wear masks on trains or on busy streets, but then obviously the droplets will fly to nearby people, right? “
-“You only have to over-disinfect and wash your hands, which means that the virus will adhere to you once, right?”
-“In the end, do you want to say this? You can’t help being exposed to the virus by others, somehow wash your hands, protect yourself,”


Well … Perhaps Kutsuna-sensei’s intention is “Even if we reduce the burden of wearing masks and disinfecting all the time, I want people to continue to take measures against infectious diseases. “
However … After all, even if the information transmission is correct, it will be like this as a result of the interpretation of the people, so I think it is better to make a habit of masking and disinfecting without transmitting strange things …





↓ 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 …!





However, the voice of Japanese people is “I don’t need any restrictions anymore!”

According to the Yomiuri Shimbun’s opinion poll conducted on a monthly basis, the number of people who answered that they were “good” about the government’s COVID-19 measures exceeded 60% for the first time since the survey started in February 2020. (62%)


Japan’s COVID-19 measures from last month to this month were mitigation following mitigation.
The same goes for yesterday’s summary article about Taiwan, but it seems that the majority of people have decided to go out with COVID-19 for the rest of their lives, as if they had a chronic illness.



I don’t want to get caught up in it …






Please be careful when you go out!
